Kindle Friends Forever: 4.5 Star Review by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall
This is simply an adorable read and as always, the author’s storytelling techniques shine through with stylish prose, laughter and tears. Making the continuation of this series effortless for me to pick up from where I left off in Awaken was an extremely important factor regarding the rating of this book. Saying that, Dean and Liv’s story is one of those unforgettable ones. Adore is different in the respect that Ms Lane has thrown a new light on the couple I have embedded in my heart. I felt the protagonists’ trials and tribulations of married life even more true to life, and I was alongside them living their fears, their doubts and stress.
Professor and distinguished expert in his field; forever the considerate husband and now father to a boy who has more energy than an alkaline battery, his love for Liv is still as strong as ever. But what do you do when you get home to a wife who’s drop-dead exhausted and only praying for a good night’s sleep! His thoughts as to how she is running her life are never criticized though. Ooh no… our man would never dream of doing that; nevertheless, something has to be done.
“Olivia Rose Winter was a woman you’d wait an eternity for. And then sit back and wait even longer.”
Quite the stubborn lady, Liv thinks she can take on whatever is asked of her by a community she has openly been accepted in and combine it with a joint business which she loves. Add the pressure to please and a demanding two-year-old has its consequences. Communication between Dean and Liv starts to falter. I wasn’t in the least surprised that all this took its toll; thus, when the crux of the matter came to a head, I didn’t want to tell her I told you so. Whilst Dean has always been her anchor, her best friend and her rock, catching Liv out trying to deceive him was a wakeup call and made him sit back and think. He isn’t your ordinary kind of guy. When she did what she did well knowing how well he can read her, made me understand her shame. For crying out loud; they complete each other in such a sublime wholeness that fooling my man rattled my cage no end! Oh, my word; how they go about putting that spark back into their lives was literally off limits! What a pleasure it was to see them discover hidden desires and push boundaries.
“Put on the apron, beauty. And bake me an apple pie.”
Dean’s career is moving at lightning speed and being offered the opportunity of a lifetime is when things get really interesting. We are all aware of Liv’s complicated past but as usual, he puts her before himself. Even in his career. Blowing kisses to you Dean…you’re the perfectly perfect man in my book! An expert in untangling whatever problem happens to be thrown his way, I saw a uniqueness in his strength of character this time. Unquestionably, his sense of righteousness outshone Liv’s selfish side. It’s not going to be easy for Liv to see the light and put everything into perspective though. Is she going to hold the love of her life back, be able to move on?
“Don’t you know by now I can never fucking say no to you, Liv?”
The secondary characters deserve more than a mention. Dean’s relationship with his brother hasn’t been exactly amicable. I can’t put into words how much I loved to see these two guys make an effort. Archer and Kelsey most definitely deserve their story nudge nudge, wink wink, Ms Lane. Nicholas, ooh my… this little lad who runs rings around his parents is such a scamp and so incredibly well described to the point that I easily imagined him in my arms. The editing was faultless to a tee. And the ending… the pants were torn off me. Mum’s the word! Bravo Ms Lane for entertaining this reader in an unputdownable read!
