About ALWAYS (Spiral of Bliss #5)
Without darkness, there can be no light.
Dean has always been Liv's white knight. Not once has he retreated from battle. Not once has he failed to keep his wife safe. Not once has he broken his promise to slay monsters for her.
Then Dean encounters a monster he can’t destroy. A monster he can’t even face. And for the first time ever, there is nothing he can do to protect the woman who owns his heart.
The love story of Liv and Dean West that started with AROUSE and continued in ALLURE, AWAKEN, and ADORE now comes to a breathtaking conclusion as the professor and his beauty fight the battle of their lives.

Now I have to admit I do feel a little nostalgic writing this review for a story that is the end to a touching and lovely series. I hope there's some surprise in the future for another book...but without any spoilers I'm hugely satisfied and blushingly content in how this series ended, right to the last page. In receiving this ARC, I finished it within days. It's a continuation of Liv's and Dean's love story and now family. It's amazing to think how this story started in book 1; it's just so different now we have read five amazing books on Liv and Dean's journey in their lives together. Hands down Author Nina Lane is such a fabulous writer. Each story has had it's intense conflict and this Book 5 Always is no different. I found this conflict to be the worst of the worst type of conflict that can definitely push a family in different directions and if you have read this series you know that Dean is the one that wants to fight whatever is in his and his family's way but this battle is different from anything he has had to face. What happens tests friendships and relationships including Dean's and Liv's marriage. Reading the POV from both Liv and Dean was again really helpful to really understand where each of them are in the battle they face. Dean has always been a favorite male lead character of mine and this book really shows you a different, raw/emotional side of him and it's great and with Liv, she's just always the one that has wanted to handle things on her own, where Dean can't fight for her and she definitely shows she can stand her own in the toughest battle of her life. It was great to read about familiar characters including the loveable Archer, Kelsey, and Liv's and Dean's children. This story does definitely have a more family feel and it has a definite love feel between Dean and Liv, that doesn't go away even in what they deal with. It's a beautiful story and this is a series I will always want to read because it captivated me from chapter 1 of book 1. I love this series! :)
My Rating: A Strong 5/5
