Book Description

"One day I'm going to touch you in a thousand different ways and show you how to touch me," he said. 
And he did.
Struggling with a tormented past, undergraduate Olivia Winter once led a practical but isolated life. Then she met Professor Dean West, a brilliant scholar of medieval history who melted Liv's inhibitions and taught her the meaning of both love and erotic pleasure. But after three years of a blissful, lusty marriage, Liv and Dean now face a crisis that threatens everything they believe about each other...and sex might not be enough to save them.

Jenn's Review

The only man you’ve ever loved, the only man you’ve ever given yourself to is slowly slipping through your fingers.

The love of your life, the only woman you’d lay down your life for, she always said you are her knight in shining armor and you are beginning to feel as though she doesn’t need you anymore.

Arouse is the incredible story of Olivia and Dean and the early years of their relationship and marriage.  Arouse could also be about your neighbor or even yourself and that’s just one of the many things I loved about this story. It could ring true for anyone.

Olivia and Dean allowed secrets and half truths to drive a wedge between them and that wedge was so deep they quit talking to each other and began talking of going their separate ways.

I love him to my bones, but suddenly I’m wondering what I might have been without him.

“Liv,” he said, his voice rough with tenderness, “you don’t have to be afraid.”
“Why not?”
“Because I’ll slay the monsters for you.”

Their passion was raw and beautiful and their love was strong. She gave all she had to him and he helped her to heal. Olivia finds out Dean didn’t give all he had to her. But he had his reasons. And Olivia has a hard time dealing with that. What is it going to take for them to be reminded of what they have and what they mean to each other?

Nina has written a beautiful story. I felt their pain through her words; I fell in love with them as they fell in love with each other. I cannot wait for you to read this story! And I hope you take from it what I did! I give Arouse a huge, heartfelt 5 stars!!!
