    For so long I haven’t read so sweet, meaningful, poignant, emotional, romantic book pushed me make so much” awwww” sounds, fill my eyes with happy, smiley tears, warm my heart, ring into my ears a lyrical, hopeful love song and give me the biggest reason to do my happy dance (as a change I mixed my Travolta-Beyonce moves with Swayze, Despicable me minions-Rosie’s imitation with her mouth fulled with marshmallows inspired me- and walk like...

    A second chance romance that portrays characters that fall in love once again with their soul mate, alongside finding yourself as a whole without each other... If you have been following my reviews for a while, you all bet your sweet cheeks that you know that my obsession for Tessa Bailey is kind of a concerning matter... Ever since I sat with her in August at a book signing that we both attended, I have been "patiently" waiting for her next rele...

    2.5 stars, I think. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't more than a little disappointing. Fix Her Up was one of my favorite romances of the year and unfortunately this one didn't even come close to hitting the same mark for me. I didn't feel the chemistry between Rosie and Dominic that I was hoping to feel based off of the snippets of tension we see between them in Fix Her Up. Also, if you disliked Travis (the love interest from Fix Her Up) for be...

    Argh this book started out so strong but really irritated me by the endRosie and Dominic Vega are high school sweethearts. They used to be madly in love. Now they don't talk at all really. Dom is faithful and works hard, but he isn't man she fell in love with ten years ago. When Rosie decides to look for more out of life and pursue her dream of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love, too.As a married woman, I was really exci...

    5 Team Vega Stars I can't express how touched I felt while reading this book. This was a second chance romance at its best. It was poignant, it was funny, heart-warming and so so sexy. It was simply magic. It's very easy for long term relationships to become stagnant. We can become complacent with our partner's wants and needs; we get too comfortable. And this is the situation we find Rosie and Dominic Vega in when we first meet them in 'Love Her...

    Phew.... talk about STEAMY and HOT my friends!! I LOVED this book! This was the perfect book to take on my honeymoon to Mexico. What more can you ask for? Steam, spice, emotions, romance, and relatable characters! The fact that she wrote about a married couple?! I loved it even more!The romance between these two characters was sweet, sexy, and oh my INTENSE! This is what a romance is all about my friends. You can't turn away from the chemistry be...

    2.5 / 5 starsI can't even begin to express how excited I was for the release of this book, I had been desperately anticipating it since I read the prequel, Fix Her Up (which I rated five stars). Unfourtanly, this did not live up to my expectations or Fix Her Up. This seemed to have a rather unusual (which was exciting) premise in regards to romance, as the couple was already married. You're introduced to Rosie and Dom in the first book, and from ...

    YAAASS!!! I CAN'T BELIVE IT! AFTER 6 MONTHS OF READING BOOKS THAT HAVE BEEN EITHER 4 STARS OR LOWER (AND A LOT OF THOSE WERE LOWER) I FINALLY, FINALLY READ A 5 STAR BOOK!!!I was legit at a place where I thought I'd never read a book and fall so completely in love that it would be a 5 star, a perfect read for me. But I'm so, so happy that "Love Her or Lose Her" gets to be the book that broke my 6 month drought. "Love Her or Lose Her" is about Rosi...

    5 Truth Telling Stars* * * * * Spoiler FreePeople sometimes dismiss romance books as all fluff, sexy talk and simple stories. That there is no real "There, There". Oh, how very wrong those who assume they know. Authors who take the time to create, highlight issues, and share outcomes dive into subjects that span all sorts of real-life challenges. They do it with a deft hand and draw audiences who are better after reading experiences they can rela...

    MY RATING:4.5/5 STARSI received an ARC from Harper Collins Canada in exchange for a honest review.After finishing Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey, I knew I had to read about Rosie and Dominic's relationship or lack of. For fans of the first novel in the Hot & Hammered series, you'll be familiar with the troubling undertones of their relationship and know that Love Her or Lose her would be an emotional one.Tessa did not disappoint with leaving you emot...
  • Lacey (Booklovers For Life)
    YAASSSSSS!!!! The hype for Rosie & Dominic was REAL ever since I read Fix Her Up. I was expecting all the good angst and groveling in Love Her or Lose Her and Tessa Bailey gave all that to me and then some. I did have my frustrations with Dominic but I loved him (and Rosie) anyway. This was SO MUCH FUN to read and I have to say I loved it even more than FHU. The heartache, the humor, the sexy times... all of it together made a fantastic read. And...
  • Caitlin Reads
    I tend to love books about couples falling in love so I was unsure if I would really enjoy reading about an already married couple as much. However, I really enjoyed reading about the effort they put forth in their romance and the way they fell in love for a second time. This was basically a second chance romance with an already married couple. After reading Fix Her Up, I was intrigued by Rosie and Dominic’s relationship and am glad I gave this...

    After reading FIX HER UP, I knew I wanted to read on in this series, even though the only thing that saved that first book for me was Georgie. Oh, and her friend group. I've had a rocky reading experience with Bailey, not going to lie. However, knowing book two would be about a pre-existing couple trying to save their marriage? I was hooked on the potential for angst but I did worry a bit as second chance romances aren't always my jam.But wow did...
  • Tracy C
    Tessa Bailey brings it! This dirty talking hero broke my heart. Dom's past and how he was raised played such a huge roll in his marriage issues. He loved Rosie so much but did not know how to express it to her. At least where she realized what he was doing. He was such a sweetheart. And I loved Rosie and that she gave Dom a chance to prove himself, learning ways to communicate with Dom in his own love language. Can't wait for Bethany's story!
  • Ambriehl Khalil
    [4.75/5 stars] This ARC was provided to me by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I love Tessa Bailey!!! This was not at all what I expected it to be. This novel follows Rosie and Dominic from Fix Her Up. Their marriage is on the brink of collapse and as a last ditch effort, they give it one more shot. I’m not normally one for books that have to do with marriage and stuff. I’m a huge romantic which also means I like to think blissfull...
  • Heather K (dentist in my spare time)
    I really enjoyed Fix Her Up, honestly way more then I had anticipated, partially since I don't always like contemporary romance and because it was my first Tessa Bailey, so I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on Love Her or Lose Her. However, though I liked Love Her or Lose Her, I didn't think it was as good of a fit for me. I'll be the first to admit that the marriage on the rocks romance isn't my thing. I don't love established couples, so right of...

    4.5A marriage on the brink. A last chance effort to improve their communication before it snaps. Tension so thicc. Angst. Fluff. Humor. This romance was HOT, complex, and made me cry from happiness more than once. Writing: Romance: Sexy times: oh mamaCharacter arcs: Oh oh oh, Tessa Bailey, this was so good. Thank you so much for writing this. The romance between these two characters was so perfect, so sweet—ok, also seriously intense and sexy...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    I was not expecting how this book was going to make me cry! The feels in this had my emotions all over the place. If you got to read book one, we were introduced to married couple Dominick and Rosie. This is their story. We learned they were having some trouble in book one and in Love Her or Lose Her, Rosie is at the end of her rope and decides to do something about it. This couple needed a wake up call. The author takes us on their journey to di...

    Anyone who thought Travis was too alpha male in Fix Her Up will almost certainly hate Dominic. Kind of disappointed by this one.
  • Bookgasms Book Blog
    This book started out by breaking my heart. I mean, my heart ached in a way I don't know that I've ever experienced so early in a book. It usually takes me a while to attach to characters, to buy-in to the relationship they're building. But there's something about the way Tessa Bailey has written Dominic and Rosie that allowed them into my heart immediately. And they bruised the heck out of it.It felt so real. One of the reasons I typically shy a...

    *2.5 stars*I loved the first book in this companion series, but I really didn't care for this one.
  • Dísir
    3.5 stars rounding up...It isn’t often that you get a romance about a decade-long married couple whose relationship has gone stale and dry, where the HEA is one where the fairytale is reiterated rather than newly formed. There’s a bit more of a ring of maturity to such kind of stories I think, because it involves how love can evolve and change and grow in different ways over the years—and how critical the act of communication becomes just t...

    If you, like me, were just dying for more of Rosie and Dominic while reading Tessa Bailey's Fix Her Up, oh you are just going to eat Love Her or Lose Her right up.What could be an entirely angsty, break your heart until the end second-chance romance is instead a make your heart full delicious slow-burner, full of love, humor, and sexy frustration. Watching these two gentle souls who are absolutely perfect for one another learn how to express thei...
  • Phuong ✯
    Play "Lose you to love me" by Selena Gomez while reading this. It's a RosieDom song and you can't tell me different. #1 Fix Her Up 3 stars.#2 Love Her Or Lose Her: 4 stars. "You shine," Dominic said gruffly. "So bright."Rosie twined their fingers together. "We shine together." What a positive surprise. I wasn't the biggest fan of 'Fix You Up', therefore I had some doubts about 'Love Her Or Lose Her' especially because it has two tropes that I'm n...
