After lies and betrayal almost destroy their marriage, Dean and Olivia West reignite their blissful passion. The medieval history professor and his lovely wife are determined to fix their mistakes, and Liv’s unexpected pregnancy intensifies their desire to fall madly in love all over again. Liv and Dean have battled obstacles together before, but bitter family conflicts now endanger their fragile intimacy. And when Dean’s career is suddenly threatened, he and Liv must struggle with events that could damage them in ways they had never imagined.

5 heartbreaking stars!

This one picks up exactly from where Arouse left off. Olivia and Dean are facing a surprise and they think that things between the two of them are better now. They went through a phase and secrets were revealed. But the truth is, they didn’t really deal with them after all. Dean and Liv are moving on, not yet ready for a baby but moving on nonetheless. They had a fallout and now when a crisis arises, they deal with it together.

“He is imprinted in my bones, my soul. He has marked me in ways more permanent than time.”

He didn’t want a baby because he thought he would screw up like it happen with his ex wife, so he hid that part of his life completely. She kissed someone else to show him than there he should not take her for granted and instead of not talking about thing, they should face them together.

Sure, they both made mistakes, no one is perfect. They are both flawed and they both have a lot to deal with.

This book wrecked me. It wrecked me so deeply. Just as they both find a silver lining and are able to break the wall between them, life throws them another curve ball. And another. Having to leave for California to deal with Dean’s family emergency – even knowing that his family is not that fond of Liv – she supports him and they now have to deal with his family and her ex ganging up on her.

What I loved about this book is that even the drama that was there made sense. They marriage is so real and their problems make sense. It could be a real story with real characters. It felt real and it broke my heart. Dean is trying so hard not to make the same mistakes and to protect his wife even from himself most of the time that he really deserves a break. He is the sweetest and all he wants to do is slay all the dragons and shield her. To say that I loved it would be an understatement. I can’t wait for the 3rd book!
