Liv and Dean West have always fallen together, but this time they might fall apart...

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.
Book Four in New York Times Bestselling Author Nina Lane's Spiral of Bliss series.

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. I love this couple, I love the heartbreaking, difficult journey they've taken as a couple up to this point, and I'm so happy that we're being treated to even more of their story in this fourth novel in the Spiral of Bliss series.

As beautiful and perfectly imperfect as the love story of Dean and Liv has been thus far, their happily ever after continues to evolve and change. Adore takes us through the current state of their life together. As busy parents to a toddler, and as professionals navigating their respective career paths, the professor and the cafe owner struggle with intimacy and a floundering connection as Dean's career takes him away often, and motherhood distracts Liv. Nina Lane crafts a beautiful, fictional escape into a world that is both a fairy tale between a vulnerable princess and her knight in shining armor, and an honest glimpse into the daily woes of a very real marriage.

Adore is sexy, steamy, emotional and dotted with humor. This achingly real love story is peppered with beautiful memories, glorious reminders of how Liv and Dean came to be, further cementing how strong their foundation is despite how difficult things can be at times. I can't emphasize my adoration of the authenticity and realism in this story enough. This series doesn't have a happy ending because that would imply Liv and Dean have an ending at all. And they don't. Their love story continues to morph and adapt and flourish and they continue to face difficulties and joys as any married couple does. Nina Lane takes the monotony and normalcy of a relationship, of parenthood, of friendship, of career pursuit, and weaves it into a captivating fictional romance that is everything we hope to sink into when we pick up a great book. This series exemplifies the perfect marriage between fantasy and reality and it's everything a reader like me craves in romance.
