Gr’s Summary

“We both want this so badly. I can feel it resonating between us like the hot pull of our first attraction, tangible and intense.”

After lies and betrayal almost destroy their marriage, Dean and Olivia West reignite their blissful passion. The medieval history professor and his lovely wife are determined to fix their mistakes, and Liv’s unexpected pregnancy intensifies their desire to fall madly in love all over again.

Then a family crisis forces Dean back into a feud with his parents and siblings, dredging up guilt over a painful family secret. Dean fights to shield Liv from the hostility, but for the first time, Liv resists her white knight’s defense. Her newfound resolve clashes with Dean’s desperate need to protect her.

Liv and Dean have battled obstacles together before, but bitter family conflicts now endanger their fragile intimacy. And when Dean’s career is suddenly threatened, he and Liv must struggle with events that could damage them in ways they had never imagined.

The Way I See It 

That was just WOW! I’m so excited for so many reasons!! I see Dean transitioning and I see Liv’s development on the cusp of full stride!! Eeeep! Talk about exciting! I have my hands in the air, and I did a twirl about...Just now, yep it happened. True to Ms. Lane's form this was a sultry steamy read that keeps you turning the pages. Un-Put-a-down-able! Mean it! I have to warn you... If you haven’t read Arouse, Book #1 in the Spiral of Bliss series, you're missing out this is a refreshing book about REAL Love with REAL (fictional) characters... ;)

A-ll consuming, their desire, their passion, their bliss, their commitment, their love it runs deeper than flesh, it surges through their souls making these two halves a whole.

L-abyrinth, Dean saw the maze that was Olivia. Struck by her beauty and his desire he is determined to find his way through, and she discovers her “key”

L-ament, Helen has everything she could ever want in a career, but she shows us just how drastic the price for that can be

U-nion, formed of love they have fought hard for what they are to the core, two people madly in love. Together they decide they can overcome anything.

R-egret, for unspoken words for over protective white lies. Things find a way to surface threatening their trust.

E-mbrace, their future... their love. Olivia knows what must happen. She will not meek out of this one...My girl is growing a pair!! WutWut!

We get to meet Deans family and I must say his sister is kind of a BeeYotch! His mom, well we learn something pretty shocking about her. His dad, typical father he didn’t really strike me as anything tipping my scales either way. His brother, black sheep sure, jerk yea, I’m probably solo on this one but I like him. Archer has had to grow up with some pretty heavy issues, sadly Dean has had to carry an awful burden. My fav supporting cast is back and they rock! I LOVE Liv’s Besties!! This is a must read! Seriously! Get it Get it Get it!

My Fav’s 

Eeeep earlier I mentioned, my girl growing a pair;) When I saw her starting to put a foot down I was like..Oh snap. I cant wait to see her character fully developed I know its going to be AMAZING! I see Liv’s strength she goes through probably one of the hardest things a woman can endure and she pushes through the crap. She is the one who realizes what Dean needs and pushes him towards his healing...Yea pretty BAD A$$. Love Her!

Well well well, NOW I KNOW, yea, I know his compulsion to save to be amazing to be perfect. It sucks and it breaks my heart because no child should ever have to carry the type of burden that Dean did. Makes me wanna slap his momma! I love that he realizes he is the broken one, and Liv is the strong resilient fighter! I was like “yea thats my girl” *winky face*

Last time I did a fist pump and had the poms out... 

This time I’d like to issue 

2 fist pumps my pom poms out and BOOM a herkie! 

My Fav Quotes 

“We’re safe with each other.~Liv No doubt about it, beauty. ~Dean I press my face against her sweet-smelling hair. “You’ll always be my allure.”
~Dean (Kindle Loc 4501)

“Love, cannot and will never be perfect. It will, however, always belong only to us in all its flawed, intense beauty. Perfect in its very imperfection.”
~Liv (Kindle Loc 5189)

“In a world of dark corners and sharp needless, there really is a place where kisses taste like apple pie and where stars spill like sugar across the sky.”...”a place where every kiss still feels like the first. In that place of us, Liv and Dean, love has its own poetry and language.”
~Liv (Kindle Loc 5317)

My Rating 

4.5 White Knight, I’m yours, Kiss, Professor, Midwestern storm, Pizza, Beauty, Pie I love you filled stars! For a fun sexy read that you won’t be able to put down I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this book!!
