 Blog Tour Review & Giveaway
(Spiral of Bliss #3)
Nina Lane
Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+
Publication Date: January 7, 2014
“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. 
Awaken is the final installment in the Spiral of Bliss series and I can honestly tell you I am sad to see it end.  This trilogy wasn’t your young couple romance of finding love, this was an established couple that had their love and devotion to one another tested on many different levels.

The story line picks up where Allure leaves off with Dean and Liv not only separated by thousands of miles but emotionally torn asunder.  What I love most about these two is that there are no lengths that either would not go to make the other one happy and shield them from hurt.

I was happy to see that Liv asserted herself more. Taking on new venture and finding something of her own that she could be proud of.  She was willing to not only revisit her past but face her past so that she and Dean could start the next chapter in their lives with a clear heart.

You could see that Dean had trouble accepting the fact the Liv wanted to deal with things on her own.  He had always been her provider and protector.  But as the story progresses we see that she has found her inner strength and has the ability to protect Dean as well.

Throughout the story we still have to contend with the “Maggie” situation and when Liv’s mom makes a sudden appearance, she just adds to the already turbulent times.

Liv and Dean’s chemistry is never in doubt.  This couple sizzles between the sheets and out.  You never doubt their devotion to one another or the depth of their love.

“I love that you love me, professor.” ~ Liv
“I love loving you, beauty.”  ~ Dean

However, when all is said and done we get what I have always wanted for Liv and Dean….happiness!  Their road may have been a bumpy one, with many twists and turns, but they stayed their course and came through it together.

If you have not read The Spiral of Bliss Series, I would highly recommend that you do.  This couple will stay with you long after the words… The End.
