Love Her or Lose Her (Hot & Hammered #2) by Tessa Bailey


4 Stars

Rosie and Dominic Vega’s marriage is over. The spark they shared since meeting in middle school has fizzled, despite their explosive sex life. Stuck in a rut they seem they will never recover from, Rosie does the unthinkable and leaves her husband… but she underestimates just how much Dominic is prepared to fight for their marriage…


Love Her or Lose Her was the heartbreaking, tear inducing, and extremely sweet story about fighting for the one you love. Rosie and Dominic have a love for the ages, but after years of marriage and taking each other for granted, the unstoppable connection they once shared has changed and made them a shell of their former selves. Now, with their very future on the line, Rosie and Dominic are either going to find each other again, or be forced to walk away from each other for good…

Rosie has had enough of the silence in her household. Where she and her husband once shared everything with each other, in recent years their interaction has shrunk to nothing… except for their once weekly sex sessions. Rosie loves Dominic, but she knows she deserves more than what their life has devolved to… like finally pursuing her dream of opening her own restaurant.

Dominic has always shown his love by taking care of his wife. For him, providing and protecting is his biggest responsibility, and he takes it very seriously. But, the problem is that he does all of his taking care of her in secret, while she has no idea of his commitment to her happiness and well being. And when Rosie finally lets him know just how far their marriage has fallen apart, it may be too late to repair the damage they have already let happen…

This book had such a great plot and I absolutely loved the characters. Rosie and Dominic really love each other, despite the fact that their marriage is in ruins. They had a sizzling attraction, and no matter what else was broken, they have always fallen back on their super hot sex life. But when the sex is missing the substance, their hope of reconciling for good may never happen.

Rosie was a strong and talented woman who needed the push given by her friends to take her life into her own hands. Dominic was a very sweet and attentive husband who is closed off and never shows his emotions. They were both great characters, but they did disappoint me a little with the fact that their relationship seemed to mature only the smallest bit and they still seemed to rely on their sexual attraction way more than they honesty and companionship they both obviously needed to focus on.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
