Who doesn’t love a good second chance romance? Even more when it involves a married couple? I have to say I was so ready for Dominic and Rosie’s story as soon as I finished Fix Her Up. And, of course, being a massive fan of Tessa Bailey I had high expectations. I am so happy how Tessa developed this love story and the journey of this couple back to falling in love all over again.
Love Her or Lose Her is already here and it’s the second installment in Tessa’s Hot and Hammered series. Dominic and Rosie Vega have loved each other for years, they had a beautiful connection and married very young. Ten years pass and now their marriage is in trouble. Dominic is not the same man after he comes back from Afghanistan and Rosie has finally decided to leave. She gives him one last chance asking to go to couples therapy. Will their love for each other be enough to save their marriage?
“Understand how serious I am about bringing you back to me. Don’t doubt me when I say I’ll fight dirty to get you back through this door.”
Gah, I love all these characters and this series so much! You also probably know that Tessa Bailey is one of my absolute favorite authors and I knew she would do a fantastic job with this novel. If you love her alpha, protective and dirty talking heroes you’ll adore Dominic and if you love her strong, independent and kickass heroines you’ll love Rosie. That together? A burning hot and emotional marriage romance you definitely don’t want to miss.
“I’ll do anything you ask me to do,” he said in a gravelly voice. “Except walk away.”
The connection between this two is beautiful to read, their ups and downs will keep you hooked to the story and the chemistry, of course, will melt you all over. Yes, it’s difficult for this couple to give in and peel each other’s layers and vulnerabilities but it’s outstanding to read. Dom is so protective and he adores Rosie and Rosie is the same with him. They belong together and that is obvious throughout the whole book. I really, really enjoyed their story and its HEA!
How lucky was she? Most people didn’t find their soul mates during their lifetime. She’d found Dominic twice.
Therefore, I am rating Love Her or Lose Her with 4.5 STARS because it was a unique marriage romance with everything I enjoy in a good love story: humor, ups and downs, emotions and a couple with scorching chemistry. I loved these characters and reconnecting again with all of them, I loved Dominic and Rosie and their second chance together and I loved getting to know them better. I cannot wait for Bethany’s story now (I know cowboy Wes will be so yummy for her! lol) and whatever Tessa has for us next!
