ANA Review: 5 hearts

“One day I’m going to touch you in a thousand different ways and show you how to touch me,” he said.  
And he did.
Struggling with a tormented past, undergraduate Olivia Winter once led a practical but isolated life. Then she met Professor Dean West, a brilliant scholar of medieval history who melted Liv’s inhibitions and taught her the meaning of both love and erotic pleasure. But after three years of a blissful, lusty marriage, Liv and Dean now face a crisis that threatens everything they believe about each other… and sex might not be enough to save them.

Let me start off by saying I absolutely loved Arouse! It’s not every day, I come across a book that will make me want to forego sleep so I can keep reading. In fairness, I started pretty late at night, but this one kept me up until 3 AM and then I passed out, completely drained by this couple’s heartfelt journey.

This book was a refreshing change of pace as it focuses on a sexy married couple. I’m not married myself, nor have I ever been in a really serious relationship. In addition to that, almost all the books I read center on couples falling in love So to come across this book, where the couple’s already been married a few years? What a novelty!

Arouse is a beautifully written, emotional story about two people fighting to stay in love. I enjoyed how the author flashed back to when Liv and Dean first met so we got to see a little bit of them falling in love and the progression of their relationship. I adore both characters and how real they are. Dean and Olivia are perfect for each other and together they rank high amongst my favorite book couples.

Trust me when I say that Arouse is hard to put down – it’s an absolute must-read! Nina Lane is an very talented writer with a gift for creating an emotional story that had me riveted for hours. She took me on a journey, to a place I’ve never been before in my reading and I can’t wait to continue Dean and Liv’s story in Allure!
