ANA Review: 5 hearts

“We both want this so badly. I can feel it resonating between us like the hot pull of our first attraction, tangible and intense.”
After lies and betrayal almost destroy their marriage, Dean and Olivia West reignite their blissful passion. The medieval history professor and his lovely wife are determined to fix their mistakes, and Liv’s unexpected pregnancy intensifies their desire to fall madly in love all over again.
Then a family crisis forces Dean back into a feud with his parents and siblings, dredging up guilt over a painful family secret. Dean fights to shield Liv from the hostility, but for the first time, Liv resists her white knight’s defense. Her newfound resolve clashes with Dean’s desperate need to protect her.
Liv and Dean have battled obstacles together before, but bitter family conflicts now endanger their fragile intimacy. And when Dean’s career is suddenly threatened, he and Liv must struggle with events that could damage them in ways they had never imagined.

It looks like I’m going to have to add the Spiral of Bliss novels to my Series Spotlight since Nina Lane is just killing me with these books! She’s a fantastic storyteller and I absolutely loved Arouse, the first in the series. And while I was reluctant to start Allure because I knew that there was more to follow, I couldn’t wait to continue Dean and Olivia’s story.. So I read it, and I’m so happy I did!

The first Spiral of Bliss book took me on a beautiful journey, and by the end of it, I was totally invested in the couple’s happy ending. This second installment, Allure, is an equally breathtaking story that had me experiencing a rollercoaster of emotions while reading it.

Dean and Olivia have a very passionate marriage, and it’s apparent how much they love each other. But what makes this couple so real is that they have marital problems. My heart broke reading about both of their doubts and insecurities, witnessing their daily struggles to overcome their pasts. I loved the sort of role reversal, especially Liv’s growth and strength in this book.

As I’ve already mentioned, Allure is just the second in the series. So while I hate cliffhangers, I was satisfied with this book’s “happy for now” ending. I adore Dean & Liv as a couple and am anxious to get my hands on the third one – Awaken!
