“I love that you love me, professor.”
“I love loving you, beauty.”
Since their intense, passionate beginning, Professor Dean West and his wife Olivia have fought dark secrets and betrayal in order to save their marriage. Now reeling in the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Liv and Dean are driven further apart by a vindictive threat to Dean’s career.
Struggling to stand on her own for the first time in years, Liv is determined to defend her husband and prove herself. Then an unexpected letter dredges up old insecurities and endangers Liv’s newfound independence. As Dean fights for his professional life, he is forced to confront his worst fear when he discovers that he can’t protect his beloved wife from her own painful past.
6 perfect stars!! Nina Lane ends the Spiral of Bliss series on an absolutely perfect note, as we follow Professor Dean West and Olivia through even more trials and tribulations involving their marriage, her family relationships and his academic career. I didn’t think Ms. Lane could top the story lines of the first two books in the series, but she has done just that.
Dean and Liv are forced to be apart due to a very serious matter involving his academic career at the university. Added to this stress is the re-appearance of a person from Liv’s past, which stirs up intense emotions and further threatens their marriage.
But Liv and Dean share an intense and beautiful intimacy that is far too often missing from contemporary erotic stories. They truly live in a state of (wedded!) bliss that is both breathtaking and incredibly satisfying to read.
“We have a tropical island, Dean. It’s called our marriage. And I’d be happy to lounge around naked eating bananas, if that’s what you want. “
I absolutely love how Liv grows and matures as a character in Awaken. Dean also learns how to let go a little, and to let life truly take them on an unexpected journey. I cannot believe this series has come to an end, and I will miss these characters terribly. Thank you to Nina Lane for creating a spectacular story filled with characters that I will never forget.
