Dean and I have always fallen together, but this time we might fall apart.

Finally I have everything...almost. With a rambunctious toddler, a crazy workschedule, and too many responsibilities, I'm guilty of neglecting my passionate, intimate marriage.

And my hot professor husband is not at all happy about that.

Whenever Professor Dean West, the rock star of the medievalist world, graces my book world, I just want to free-fall into him. Ah, don't you dare don a pair of leather pants, though because I'd rather see you in your posh suit or washed out jeans.

When Nina Lane announced we would have more of Dean and Liv let's just say I was all over it lol I think many of us were! Why? Because the love story between these two captured my heart since the beginning. And this novel is just another great chapter in the West's lives.

First of all, let me tell you all something. If you want to know and understand everything about this novel I think it's better if you have read the three previous books (of course) but also Arc

When experiencing something so wonderful, it’s a sad moment when it comes to an end. Nina Lane couldn’t have picked a more apt title for (what I hope is not) the last chapter of Liv and Dean’s story.

As an avid fan of this series, I genuienly feel as though I have been on a journey with Liv and Dean. I’ve been with them through their highs and lows.

Well well well... If there ever is a couple I ADORE and LOVE then Dean & Liv are it!!!

Gah ok ok... What to say what to say?? It's 1am did I tell you that? Well it's 1am and here I am writing this because these characters have crawled themselves into my thoughts this week and I'm unable to let them go so I'm writing my thoughts down...

This is something Nina Lane did beautifully with Professor West and his Beauty.
I truly adored visiting them again and I highly recommend the whole series to any romance reader. (Level of steam: high! Which is pretty perfect if you ask me.)

In this book we get to catch up with Dean, Liv and baby Nicholas. As many can attest, marriage takes some work and it's no different for these two. Dean is still teaching at King's University and traveling the world assisting with the preservation of historical sites.

This has been by far one of my favorite book series and couple that I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. These characters make a lasting impression and they feel like reuniting with old friends. I will never forget Liv and Dean and how they make marriage,love,trust,and partnership work.

Among the many things I loved about 'Adore', is that this wasn't just a follow-up book, an addition in the series. Nina Lane delved into the psyche of her characters. We read what they are thinking, deep down who they really are. We learn them. We care about them. I have a much better understanding of who Dean and Liv are, and why they made and make the choices they do.

Dean is gone a great deal of time due to work. Liv is moving on with life at home as if she were single. She's making decisions

Things were going great for Dean and Liv when we last heard from them in Arrive. However, with a toddler around, they are having to make some adjustments and it's not always easy.

They both have too much going on and keep tacking more things onto their plates. Not to mention, they are both trying to spice up their sex lives...or lack of.

This leads to some very interesting and hot interludes. This is definitely an area where Professor West's skill in planning has come in handy!

I love Nina Lane's writing. I have loved every book from this series, including this one. Unfortunately... I couldn't give this one 5 stars, for one simple reason: Olivia's selfishness. Oh. My. Gosh! I couldn't get over it. Everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) was about her. How she felt, what she wanted, what she needed, at her convenience, etc. It made me feel extremely sympathetic to my baby Dean (who I loved sooooooo much more after reading this book, for obvious reasons).

Nina Lane is one of THE most talented contemporary romance writers today. Her Spiral of Bliss series is one of my top favorite series, with outstanding characters, fantastic stories and one of THE sexiest couples I know, Liv and Dean. So I was more than excited to jump in to ADORE, the latest book in the series. Nina Lane has made me a fan of this sexy, real, gorgeous couple, with all of their problems and issues and yes, even humorous moments.

What I love most about these books is that they are about an established couple trying to keep their relationship afload. What I loved about this one especially, is that I saw some of myself in Liv.

This book wasn't needed but honestly, I really enjoyed reading it. I really liked reading more of Liv and Dean's struggles as a married couple and I love reading the aftermath after everything they have been through.

Nothing changes the status quo of a relationship like bringing a child into it. If you think they will just nicely slot in around your life and commitments, think again. They pretty much become your life. You are now a parent 24/7 and any decisions or plans you make are with your child in mind. I am definitely guilty as charged of making out with my husband and mentally ticking things off in my head, things that I deem important.

It's so rare today, in this romance climate, to find a fictional married couple as thoroughly captivating as Liv and Dean West. As a reader who craves realism in her fiction, and as a woman who can attest to the fact that the ebbs and flows of a real marriage never cease, I can so appreciate that Nina Lane chooses to bring us along, yet again, through the ups and downs of the West's marriage.

Nina Lane is one of my most favorite authors. I absolutely adore her writing. I'm completely in love with her Spiral of Bliss series, with outstanding characters, fantastic stories and one of THE sexiest couples I've read.

This book made my heart happy!

So so good to be back with Dean again. As I've said in previous review, I love reading about this couple because they are real. They have real lives and real issues that any married couple can understand. I have certainly been there, with three children, me and my husband find it very difficult to find time for each other. This book shows us that no matter how difficult life can be at times, you need to work and grow together, to keep each other happy.

3.5 Stars!!!

This book was not the same as the earlier one as it deals with Dean and Liv's domestic life. It started off when Nicholas was already part of their life. It states how she jumbles her life as a mom, a businesswoman and a wife. Truthfully, it was exhausting.

I love how realistic the author has written about the stress of being a mother and it saddens me to know that sometimes even though the couple loves one another, taking care of a child really consumes your energy thus resulting

Dean and Liv were one of the hardest couples to say goodbye to. So, you can imagine my delight (*happy dancing) when I found out that Nina Lane was giving us yet another story in one of the most beautiful love stories of all time.

Dean and Livs story continues

Intimacy in marriages change tremendously when children are involved. For Liv and Dean between their careers and raising their 2 year old son, they find there is not much time left in the day for each other. Every attempt they make seems to falter.

Dean misses being intimate with Liv and decides it's time to step it up and put the spark back in the marriage, by whatever means is possible.

I seriously wished every man would read this book. Dean is the perfect example
