Rosie and Dominic Vega are the perfect couple: high school sweethearts, best friends, madly in love. Well, they used to be anyway. Now Rosie’s lucky to get a caveman grunt from the ex-soldier every time she walks in the door. Dom is faithful and a great provider, but the man she fell in love with ten years ago is nowhere to be found. When her girlfriends encourage Rosie to demand more out of life and pursue her dream of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love, too. Three words: marriage boot camp.
Never in a million years did Rosie believe her stoic, too-manly-to-emote husband would actually agree to relationship rehab with a weed-smoking hippie. Dom talking about feelings? Sitting on pillows? Communing with nature? Learning love languages? Nope. But to her surprise, he’s all in, and it forces her to admit her own role in their cracked foundation. As they complete one ridiculous—yet surprisingly helpful—assignment after another, their remodeled relationship gets stronger than ever. Except just as they’re getting back on track, Rosie discovers Dom has a secret… and it could demolish everything.
Okay, so I fell in LOVE with Fix Her Up, the first book in the Hot & Hammered Series. Which meant I was so excited for Love Her or Lose Her, especially because we met Rosie and Dominic in the previous book. This book was a damn journey. There are so many ups and downs, but the growth of both characters kept me completely enthralled. I’ve got to admit that I love a book with a good therapist, and Tessa Bailey wrote a really hilariously good one. Couples therapy for the Vega’s is so eye opening, and I really enjoyed that. Sometimes we need that objective person to point things out to us that are right outside of our perspective. Rosie and Dominic kind of made me want to scream at certain points, because I felt like they shouldn’t be that dense, but it is what it is. Overall, I enjoyed the second book is the Hot & Hammered Series, and I’m looking forward to the third!
