Day 87 – Arouse (Spiral of Bliss #1) by Nina Lane
So full disclosure, Nina Lane is an IRL friend of mine, so I’m going to make this a little personal….
Since I review for Kirkus, almost the only books I get to “read” are books in my review queue. So even though Nina wrote this, her breakout series, after we met, I still didn’t have time to read it!
The series hit bestseller’s lists and had mad fans crazy begging for more and I still hadn’t read them! :o(
She finally produced them in audio, and I was able to “read” them.
Liv & Dean are special. They’re a married couple who love each other fiercely, and have had a storybook romance, but then, when things get complicated, they have to learn how to love each other in new ways.
It never occurred to them that their love might not last, but it also never occurred to them that it might be tested.
It’s a refreshing change to have a three book series (well, and beyond, but it started with the 3) focus on a married couple as they struggle and shift into a different level of love, and yet to still have it feel like a sizzling, powerful romance.
Dean is a sexy history professor – think Indiana Jones in the first scene of Raider’s of The Lost Arc, when he’s in the classroom with a bunch of female students mooning over him – and Liv is his gorgeous, free-spirited wife he’d do anything for.
Spend three books falling in love with him as he proves it, and falling in love with her as she convinces you she deserves him.
(This book is currently free on Kindle – here – so I hope you’ll give it – and the series – a try!)\
Arouse (Spiral of Bliss #1)
We promised each other a sweet, hot forever.
Brilliant, handsome professor Dean West is everything I’ve ever wanted, but didn’t think I would have. My troubled past left me wary and guarded. But when Dean rescued me from mix-up with college courses, the spark between us turned into a firestorm. As he taught me about desire and trust, this warm, sexy man always kept me safe.
And for three years, our hot, loving marriage has been unbreakable.
Or so I thought.
Then one simple question provokes an alarming chain of events that threatens to tear us apart forever.
Not once have I believed Dean would lie to me…until he does.
Not once have I believed I would betray him…until I do.
Not once have I believed we would ever be apart…until we are.
Welcome to Spiral of Bliss. Liv and Dean’s everlasting romance will melt your heart, turn you on, and enchant you with the power of a love to end all loves.
