Blog Tour ~ Adore (Spiral of Bliss #4) by Nina Lane @NinaLaneAuthor
Liv and Dean West have always fallen together, but this time they might fall apart...
and Dean have everything…almost. With a rambunctious toddler, crazy
work schedules, and too many responsibilities, they’ve lost sight of
their passionate, intimate marriage. And Professor West is none too
happy about that.
Determined to lure his wife into hot new
adventures, Dean struggles with his need to have Liv all to himself and
the reality of sharing her with the world.
Then he gets an
opportunity that could change their lives…and Liv is faced with the
prospect of her white knight going places where she can’t follow.

Dean… the outrageously alluring
and incredibly seductive hero who I affectionately nick named ‘Professor
McHottie Pants’ stole my heart yet again in Adore…swoon
Dean and Olivia West… So
ecstatic to revisited one of my all time favorite lovebirds and this story was
a great surprise. Throughout this series, (which I recommend reading in it's entirety before
diving into Adore), I’ve weathered all
the ups and downs of their relationship ~ the heartaches, the triumphs, and the
obstacles that threatened to rip them part. I was curious to see how their
story would continue. I was worried and hoped that their ‘happily ever after’
would not become tainted or forced to experience undue angst. Consuming this
read in one sitting (because I could not tear myself away from the amazing
professor), I found myself touched by another one of Nina Lane’s heartwarming
tales. This time, I was faced with this
couple’s realistic struggle to reignite their passion while moving past the
doldrums of marriage.
Liv, while taking on more responsibilities
with the business and an active member within the community of Mirror Lake, is
dealing with the challenges of motherhood. She is tired and exasperated,
pushing herself to the max as Nicholas is going through the ‘terrible twos’
stage. I loved seeing her character become more resilient with each struggle
she faced. She’s vulnerable, yet became stronger as she tried to conquer every
obstacle thrown her way. Despite her struggles, she would do everything and
anything for her husband. Her love for him is limitless. And as always, it’s Dean
who provided the strength she needed to persevere. I cherish their unique and mutually
dependent relationship, which feeds their souls.
Poor Dean, between his
constant travels, Nicholas’ interruptions and the unrelenting pressure to take
his career to a new level, he isn’t getting any nookie. Sexually frustrated, he
misses the effortless spark of their passion and is annoyed it takes work to
get Liv all sexed up. There’s just no spontaneity or free time and something’s
got to give. Together, they faced the issue head on, determined to rekindle
their sex life and find a way back to one another. And this where my Dean shines
through – his resolve to regain control by spicing things up in the bedroom. As
expected, he totally wowed me with his smoking hot and dominating ways. The
professor certainly knows how to get down and dirty by using all of his charms
and raw sexiness to kick the heat level up to scorching.
Just when I thought I
couldn’t love him more, I’ve fallen deeper for the way he consistently needs to
protect and provide for his wife in all ways. Each time he calls Olivia “my
beauty”, he melts my heart. Just the perfectly sweet and swoon worthy hero.
Nina Lane has a magical way
of stringing words together so beautifully sweet, they are seared into my soul.
Adore was a compelling realistic and heart
warming romance that will forever stay with me. I adored and appreciated the
emotional way she scripted Liv and Dean’s everlasting love. This read was a
wonderful treat for me, and as always, looking forward to more epic romances
from her creative imagination.
