Without darkness, there can be no light.

Dean has always been Liv's white knight. Not once has he retreated from battle. Not once has he failed to keep his wife safe. Not once has he broken his promise to slay monsters for her.

Then Dean encounters a monster he can’t destroy. A monster he can’t even face. And for the first time ever, there is nothing he can do to protect the woman who owns his heart.

The love story of Liv and Dean West that started with AROUSE and continued in ALLURE, AWAKEN, and ADORE now comes to a breathtaking conclusion as the professor and his beauty fight the battle of their lives.

Alexis says…

Wow…what a way to end one of the most EPIC love stories I’ve ever read. The Spiral of Bliss series is not your run of the mill book that you can find on Amazon or any e-book site there days. It’s a series that will have you falling in love with a couple that is head over heels for each other.. The love that Dean and Liv have for each other and their children is one for the record books. It’s a love you want to aspire to, treasure, and read over and over again.

Dean and Liv have returned back to their home, Mirror Lakes after being in Paris. They now are the proud parents of two children, Nick and Bella, and they have immersed themselves in their community. They are both back at work, Liv at the Wonderland Café, and Dean is back teaching again. Everything is going right in their lives, until it isn’t anymore.

“You are the only place in the world where I feel safe. You always will be.”

The Wests are rocked by something that Dean cannot fix. It’s out of his hands. It’s something he can’t go to war with and take down like the sexy professor we all know he is. That in itself, I think was the hardest thing for me to swallow while reading Always. Dean has always been the fighter in their beautiful world, the man that makes everything better. His helplessness is what brought on the big ugly tears and watching him come to terms with everything was heartbreaking. It was up to Olivia to help move her family past this tragedy and right their world again.

Yes, there was some angst that kept me up in late hours furiously reading but I needed to make sure that everything would be okay for the one couple I hold so dear.  There is also a lot of Archer and Kelsey in this book and I love where Nina took their story. Both West brothers are completely undeniable but a certain professor has slayed me for all book boyfriends…he literally is the ultimate.

“I love you, beauty. My heart goes with you.”

If you have not read this series, it’s a must. It’s beautiful, sexy, and well, just perfect.  Thank you Nina for giving us the perfect ending to the most deserving couple out there.  It’s a bit heartbreaking to say goodbye to a series that I’ve loved for so long.

P.S. Nina…I love you and your writing like Dean loves Liv.
