“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.
OH MY! I'm a mess after finishing this book.....I didn't think it was possible, but Nina has done it again and made me fall even more in love with Dean and Liv. I found myself invested in Dean and Liv's relationship....such a beautiful, realistic, heartbreaking love story! 5 stars!
The story picks up right where AROUSE left off. Liv's pregnancy brings her and Dean closer together. Dean steps up and takes care of Liv and becomes even more protective then he already is of Olivia....yeah I know *swoon* I swear I melt every single time I hear the word beauty. When Dean has to go home due to an unfortunate happening with one of his family members, Dean does not want to expose Liv to any animosity that his family might feel toward her, and bring her any unnecessary stress to her pregnancy. But Liv is adamant about standing by Dean during this time and she is stronger then we all thought. Dean and Olivia learn together as a couple and make huge strides in their marriage and we get some super steamy and super sweet scenes but a terrible, devastating loss and horrible allegations once again threaten this couples HEA and they are once again left fighting for their marriage.
I will say it again, I absolutely adore this series, one of my favorites of 2013. I love Nina's ability to suck me in to Olivia and Dean's marriage and make me feel every emotion....from the passion to the gut-wrenching heartbreak. I can't wait for the next book in this series!
