Adore (Spiral of Bliss #4) by Nina Lane @NinaLaneAuthor


4.5 “My Beauty” Stars


Dean… the outrageously alluring and incredibly seductive hero who I affectionately nick named ‘Professor McHottie Pants’ stole my heart yet again in Adoreswoon


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.
