The growth of Dean and Olivia from their pasts is incredible. In Awaken we really see Olivia establish who she is not just in their relationship but in her work/personal life outside of their marriage. Dean has to do some soul searching to break free from his past and embrace letting Olivia stand on her own. Of course all of this is done while the face the potential for Dean's career to be destroyed by one selfish spineless student. We also get to meet Olivia's mother – not sure what to say about her but wow, if you didn't think Olivia was tough before, watching her interactions with her Mom just prove how strong she really is. An amazing conclusion to this incredible romance … marriage isn't easy but when two people work at it together, anything is possible.

Dean and Liv are one of my favorite couples of the year and I absolutely loved every minute of their story, it was hot and sexy, heartfelt and romantic. If you haven't read Arouse, Allure, or Awaken you are definitely missing out!!! During this last book in the spiral of bliss series, it seems like everything falls into place for them. I loved this series because it was so much more real than other novel's of this genre, Dean and Liv experience "real" problems in their marriage and lives throughout the series. But during this time they also display true passion and desire for one another. So there are a lot of very steamy parts, which is always a plus in a great romance. I must admit that even though this book couldn't have ended more perfect, I was sad to read the last page. I don't want to let go of this beautiful couple, I'm really hoping that Nina does a spin off, and includes some more of Her Professor and His Beauty!!

5 +++ stars I have never given 5 +++ stars before-this is a first for me and it encompasses the entire series. AWAKEN is the third and final instalment in Nina Lane’s contemporary, new adult, erotic and sensually seductive Spiral of Bliss series focusing on Professor Dean West and the love of his life, his soul and his heart Olivia (aka Beauty) West. It is a storyline about two people, who love beyond words; who feel beyond pain; and who know that- without the other- their lives would be meaningless and without hope. AWAKEN is a story about one man’s journey to prove that he is not the sum total of the accusations against him-but that he is the person that he is because of the woman he loves. Dean is no stranger to loss or pain, but the fear of losing Olivia throws Dean into a world of heartbreaking sorrow and a decision that will put an end to the devastation and pain that has entangled their lives. As Olivia begins to move forward with her independence, Dean’s life begins to spiral out of control. The relationship between Dean and Olivia is sensual, erotic, provocative and moving. Dean’s love for Olivia is beyond comprehension; beyond arousing; beyond alluring. He is a man possessed by one woman and that woman owns Dean-body and soul. She is the innocence to his experience; the drug to his addiction; the light to his dark. Dean and Olivia’s relationship is passionate, heartbreaking and intense. We watch as a true romantic hero guides his innocent beauty into a world that is grace, imaginative and stirring. Every woman could only hope that there is a man as compelling and provocative in their future or their life. Nina Lane has written a series that will captivate and awaken your mind to the possibilities of true love; soul-mates; and a love ever lasting. AWAKEN and the Spiral of Bliss is a sensually stimulating series where two people come together in an exotic tale that will AROUSE, ALLURE and AWAKEN your mind. Congratulations to Nina Lane. Spiral of Bliss is one of the most seductive series I have had the pleasure to read. You caught my attention with Arouse and awakened a dormant part of my soul. I can’t stress enough how the series and your writing has opened up my mind to the endless possibilities of what ifs and maybes; to the reality of love; and the allure of the romantic storyline-that I will never forget.

Once upon a time there was a knight in shining armor disguised as a university professor and a broken damsel in distress disguised as an undergraduate student. And they fell in love. A deep, intensely passionate, soul-searing, indestructible bond of love. Nothing could break them. They would withstand all of the ugly the world threw at them. Together. This is the story of Dean and Liv. Professor Dean West is an intense, protective, controlling, dominant force to be reckoned with, but oh so chivalrous, romantic, and sensual. A true knight in shining armor not to mention a Holy Sex God with a bit of kink on the side! Olivia West is his intelligent, beautiful (not to mention very lucky) wife who has learned to stand on her own two feet and pave her way after picking up the pieces of her broken childhood. Awaken picks up right where Allure left off. Dean is in Italy working and Liv is at home in Mirror Lake about to embark on her own journey pursuing her dreams. The couple has thus far survived heartbreak and tragedy but unfortunately, there continues to be a threat looming over their heads. Nina Lane offers us an intimate look into the marriage of Liv and Dean. She leads us on a journey through the trials and tribulations life throws their way and how they manage to endure together rather than letting those hardships tear them apart. Nina skillfully manages to capture the raw passion and tender emotions between these two characters so fiercely that they ooze off the page and settle directly into your heart. The words are lyrical and the imagery is sublime. There isn’t one single detail I don’t love about this book. The writing is exquisite! It isn’t a frustrating, angsty read but a breathtakingly beautiful tale of perfectly imperfect love. “My husband doesn’t just love me. He knows how to love me. He knows what I need and when I need it, sometimes even better than I do. He knows how to unfold all the tight, rough parts of me and smooth them out with one glide of his hand. He knows how to prove that he – and only he – understands every crevice of my soul. He knows how to remind me that I am forever safe within his heart.” What woman doesn’t want to be loved like this? An all-encompassing, powerful, intimate connection that transcends the test of time. This story may be a work of fiction, but there are some fabulous lessons here to be learned from Liv and Dean. We all know relationships aren’t easy. Make no mistake about it; Dean and Liv put a great deal of effort into their marriage every single day. They communicated honestly and openly, both talking and listening intently. They opened each other up while holding each other up. They showed respect to one another. And they healed themselves while healing each other. “How is it you’re always so warm?” (Dean) “Because of you...You drive away the cold and melt the ice. You’ve always made me bloom.” (Liv) Dean and Liv rank in the top two of my all-time favorite book couples. I adore them. I admire them. I love them wholeheartedly. Nina Lane has beautifully and brilliantly concluded this poignant trilogy of perfectly imperfect love. It is a truly unforgettable work of art that will always stay close to my heart. If you too enjoy touching, sensual love stories, I highly recommend this entire three-book series.

The Brilliant and Captivating Conclusion to a Wonderful Love Story Where Love Does Conquer All I can honestly say Nina Lane has concluded the Spiral of Bliss trilogy with absolute perfection. I am completely satisfied with the direction and storyline and was thrilled that Awaken was just as "perfect" as Arouse and Allure. The conclusion of the trilogy will give readers (and fans of Liv and Dean) all the same feelings they had reading Arouse and Allure, but more. I am literally in mourning knowing this is the end. There will only every be ONE PROFESSOR for me. Note: The symbolism in the covers and throughout the series is utterly brilliant and NIna Lane proves once again why she is one of the best authors in the Indie community.
