Elena Reviews: Awaken (Spiral of Bliss #3) by Nina Lane

Awaken Cover

The synopsis:

“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.(

My review:

“I’m at your feet forever, Olivia Rose,” I whispered the instant before our lips met. “I’ll move heaven and earth to give you whatever you want, whatever you need.”

Awaken is the breathtakingly beautiful ending to The Spiral of Bliss Series. Whatever I’ll say won’t do this third installment justice.

It’s amazing how much Nina Lane was able to make me fall in love with this story and its characters. From Arouse to Allure and finally Awaken, we follow one of the best love stories ever written. I’ll never forget Liv and Dean’s passionate and all consuming love, and I’ll never forget all the emotions I felt while reading. With Awaken I found myself reading very slowly, because I wanted to savor every page, every passage. I wish it was made of one thousand pages, because I never wanted it to end, and when I actually reached the last page, I wanted to start it all over again.
