Saying Goodbye to Dean and Olivia West

Before I say goodbye to these two people(yes, they are real life people to me!) Let's look back from the beginning - because I am just not ready to let them go! 

Arouse: First book in the Spiral of Bliss trilogy
"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 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 when dark secrets and temptations rise to the surface, the fallout might break them apart forever. 

Allure: Second book in the Spiral of Bliss trilogy
"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 cherished wife are determined to fix their mistakes and 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. Liv and Dean have battled obstacles together before, but with bitter family conflicts now endangering their fragile intimacy, they soon must struggle with events that could damage them in ways they had never imagined. 

Awaken: Final book in the Spiral of Bliss trilogy
“I love that you love me, professor.”
“I love loving you, beauty.”
Since their intense, passionate beginning, Professor Dean West and his wife Olivia have fought dark secrets and betrayal in order to save their marriage. Now reeling in the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Liv and Dean are driven further apart by a vindictive threat to Dean’s career.
Struggling to stand on her own for the first time in years, Liv is determined to defend her husband and prove herself. Then an unexpected letter dredges up old insecurities and endangers Liv’s new found independence. As Dean fights for his professional life, he is forced to confront his worst fear when he discovers that he can’t protect his beloved wife from her own painful past.

I guess it's time.......
How do you say goodbye? 
How do you let go of people that you have come to love? 

As I read Awaken; I could not help but take my time getting through it. I just did not want the story to end! Liv becomes a independent person, but she knows she has Dean by her side no matter what. Dean goes through some crazy shit, but he gets through  it all with the love and support from Liv. I waited a long time for this book to come out, but it was worth it. Because I have to say goodbye(Nina gave me no choice) it ended PERFECTLY!  These books made me laugh, cry, fall in love and want to jump into the book and kick some serious ass!!! 5 stars for each book!
