Then an unexpected letter dredges up old insecurities and endangers Liv’s newfound independence.

The Way I See It
I have been most fortunate to discover these books. Ms. Lane has taken me on a wonderful escape with Olivia and Dean. From the first page I was completely captivated and transformed! Bravo bravo there are books out there that will leave a lasting imprint on your soul, this is one of them. I had a wish earlier in the series I wanted Liv to transform into the strong confident woman I knew she was and show the world! She DOES! I was so excited! Dean is just amazing because he loves Liv just the way she deserves. This was one super steamy read Ms. Lane sure knows how to turn her written words in powerful emotions. The love that these two share jumps off the pages. 

A-ccusation, has threatened Dean he must do the unthinkable and separate from his heart and his soul. Knowing this must be done doesn’t make it any easier.
W-ork, Liv has fought to take care of her friend in the best way she knows how. Unfortunately sometimes its best to let go, Liv is determined to figure something out to achieve her independence.
A-lone, her family has never held fond memories for Liv but a ghost from her past will leave her a gift that will become the foundation of a new beginning for her.
K-nowing, after all of the accusations threaten Deans carrier he will fight. Once more than his career is on the line and his precious wife is threatened he has no choice but to concede to his enemies demands.
E-vent, the grand opening is supposed to be a time for celebration but an unforeseen encounter will be everyones breaking point. Truths come out in an explosive way and this will be the catalyst of how things will end.
N-ew, everything that has happened leading up to an event that finally close a dark chapter in their lives Dean and Olivia will embrace each other ready to face the rest of their lives the way they were meant to live. Together.

Such an amazing love story where things aren’t always pretty and these two must fight to remain together. All along you will find your self cheering these two on. I cannot recommend this series enough truly this is one every body needs to pick up! Olivia and Dean will capture your heart. In Awaken we meet Liv’s mom and the man who put her on the path that has brought her to now. Though I wanted to punch Liv’s mom a time or two my heart kind of broke for her. I was giddy with emotion when Liv stands up for herself and shows every one what a strong person she is. 

My Fav’s
