“We both want this so badly. I can feel it resonating between us like the hot pull of our first attraction, tangible and intense.”

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.

Then a family crisis forces Dean back into a feud with his parents and siblings, dredging up guilt over a painful family secret. Dean fights to shield Liv from the hostility, but for the first time, Liv resists her white knight’s defense. Her newfound resolve clashes with Dean’s desperate need to protect her.

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.

Jodie Rae's Review

"Our relationship, our love cannot and will never be perfect. It will, however, always belong only to us in all its flawed, intense beauty. Perfect in its very imperfection."

I rate Allure 5 beautiful leaves! Let me first start off by saying Dean is my all-time favorite book boyfriend. Right up there with Edward Cullen! Allure is the second book of the Spiral of Bliss series, and it drew me in and kept me captivated just as well as Arouse. Nina Lane is a wonderful writer. She has the ability to create a story that sucks you in and leaves you wanting more. Allure picks up right where Arouse left off, which just happened to be a very steamy scene!
There is so much emotion to this story; you feel like you're on a mountain of emotions that makes your heart ache and brings you to your knees. These characters are so real and believable to me. Their love is so beautiful, and I was so pleased with the flashbacks. I thoroughly enjoyed reading how the two fell for each other and worked through their relationship.
I cannot even form the right words to express how much I feel for this book. It’s just... Alluring ;-) I am very excited for the third book to release,  so I can get more of my boyfriend! I want Dean to call me his "beauty." Every time he would call Olivia that, it made my heart melt even more for him! Dean, if you are real? Call me... Maybe? ;-)
