ALWAYS (Spiral of Bliss #5) by Nina Lane @NinaLaneAuthor
Perfection. Nina Lane penned an
exquisite ending to her heartfelt romantic series. Professor Dean West, I fell
in love with you all over again.
I was delighted and honored to
receive the ARC for Always. I
followed this couples’ journey from the beginning, and with each tale, my love
and adoration for these characters flourished. Their love, their missteps,
their pain, their growth, everything they endured, touched me in an
unforgettable way. This is without a doubt one of my all time favorite series
and there are not enough stars in the sky to award my beloved Dean, his beauty
Olivia, and this read. Once finishing Always,
I found myself at a loss. Unable to find the words that can fully explain how
my heart felt as I stepped inside their truly incredible love story. I can try,
but my words will never do their profound beauty justice.
I. Was. Floored.
Astounded by this bittersweet,
emotionally driven finale. It is here where they face an unexpected,
life-altering obstacle. Liv continues to strengthen her resolve to push herself
and her family forward, as Dean struggles with the fact that some situations
are beyond his control. He cannot slay all the dragons, but will do anything
and everything for the love of his life.
Dean West ~ the bravest and most valiant
knight, whose kinks and flaws in his armor made him THE PERFECT hero. My love
for his character is immeasurable. The professor was just as swoon worthy,
commanding and sexier than ever. All his passion, his vulnerability, his
devotion, the fathomless love for his beauty, scorched my soul. I just wanted
to crawl inside this story and wrap my arms around him.
Olivia ~ one of the most gentle, soft-spoken
heroines ever, and I absolutely adored her. Just like a butterfly, her
transformation was remarkable ~ from the insecure timid girl I first met in
Arouse, to an admirable woman of strength ~ she left me in awe.
Liv and Dean's journey was an
epic love story that will be forever seared deep within my soul. I cherished
every moment of their passion (these two, as always, are HOT); sniffled my way
through their heartaches; giggled in their moments of levity; and those quirky
jokes and drawings made me smile. As I made my way through each book within this
series, Nina Lane held my heart in the palm of her hand, causing it to sing
with joy over the triumphs or weep with sorrow in their moments of darkness. It
was an absolutely incredible experience. I was filled with bliss seeing their
continuing tale, but mourning the end of their journey. My only consolation is
to revisit the quaint town of Mirror Lake whenever I feel these characters
calling. If you love sizzling romances laced with passion, that will twirl your
emotions, I highly recommend this series. And as always, I’m looking forward to
Lane’s next magical romance.
