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 release. I wish I could easily get inside her head and read more of ...more
*Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley.
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 or Lose Her'.
Rosie is done; her dre ...more
I’m crying from happiness this is the best sigh!! All the feelings with this one, my new favorite from Tessa Bailey. Tessa takes the reader to an emotional and intense roller coaster!Rosie and Dominic's relationship is not perfect , they have issues .
I loved how Rosie and Dominic trying to fix their marriage.They have some super hot,sexy,funny,sweet and emotional moments.Both characters felt realistic and their problems too.I felt so connected with them!
Overall,this is one of the best books I read ...more
I 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 firs ...more
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 ...more

People 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 relate to and possibly see themselves in the outcomes.
Not every roman ...more
I 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 emotionally wrecke ...more
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 blissfully and ignorantly when it comes to love. Yes, I’m well awa ...more
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 off the bat that's a strike against the story. However, Tessa Bailey writes se ...more
My thoughts on Fix Her Up (Hot Hammered #1).
Thank you so much to Avon for an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.
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 away from books about married couples is because ...more
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 to keep the romance going beyond scorching up ...more
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 their love, complete with the most hippy-d ...more
#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 not a fan of. The first trope is when the couple is already established/>/> ...more
I was super excited to read this after loving the vibes between Rosie and Dominic in the first book, but the representation in this book was non-existent even though both the characters on the cover are brown. At one point, girlfriend's nipples were described as "pink-tipped"... Anyways, it was obvious that this was a book written by a white woman.
Dominic also had problematic sides to his character, in my opinion, that I didn't feel like he apologized enough for. Anyways, it's not a ...more
