My Review:Loved this book! It was really refreshing to read a book about an already Married couples. Don't doubt that this book isn't as hot as any other because of that fact, its even hotter. Liv and Dean have a Explosive marriage and its just great. But like all relationships its something that will always need to be worked at to keep it wonderful. They almost make it look effortless even with their problems. After 5 amazing years of Marriage they hit a bump in the road. Liv makes a choice and this choice changes everything. Oddly for them this is something most couples find natural to talk about. With Dean and Liv they talk about everything, so why does this cause such a stir? In the end Dean has his secrets and they threaten to tear them apart at the seams. Nina and Dean as well as the other characters in this book are super well developed. You really get invested in all of them as they truly feel like real people. Liv is still finding her way, and on her journey to do so you meet her friends and really get a deeper glimpse at her herself. You dive into Liv's head and see what problems she is having. Who knew asking one question would lead to what it did in her marriage. But Liv isn't all innocent as you will come to read. Dean, Oh Dean. tall dark and handsome Dean just melts your heart. He is the perfect husband. Supportive, attentive, affectionate, just awesome. Him and Liv just work, they are perfect together. When Liv starts to ask some question and bring up something important they start to distance themselves from each other and it causes some problems. Even though all of it I felt for Dean. He had his reasons for his secrets, but he also went about things the wrong way and inevitably it bit him in the ass. This book was great. Mind-blowingly great :D I Loved every page of it. Simply could not stop holding out that everything would end in perfect bliss. This book had a great storyline, very real life, and it was relatable. The characters were great and so was the writting. Total 5 star with no doubt. A great book for anyone to read. It captures your heart <3 It ALSO has a cliffhanger ending! I know right! So now im counting dow for the second book :D

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.
