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 hippy. 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.
Rosie and Dom were high school sweethearts. They got married young and soon after, Dom left for the military. After his last return home, things were never the same.

What he'd given wasn't enough.

This rom-com was hot! One thing Rosie and Dom have always had is their physical connection. Those two can seriously go at it, but not where it matters most. They don't even kiss unless it's on Tuesday's, their scheduled sexy time. Rosie has felt like her marriage is going nowhere. When she decides enough is enough, Dom opens his eyes and realizes he's about to lose the love of his life.

"You're the most incredible woman I've ever seen. So beautiful you make me ache. And you've got a heart to match. You're patient and loyal and dedicated and kind. A man who never worried about doing enough to earn you? That man would be an idiot."

Love Her or Lose Her starts with this couple's separation. I admired Rosie for making the decision to separate and start to live her life by following her dreams. I loved that she didn't crawl back to Dom when he went to look for her. I loved she looked for hippiest of counselors to help them out.

I kept looking forward to those counseling sessions because it's when we see Rosie and Dom at their most vulnerable. It's when they open up and truly share what has made their marriage fail. Everything about those sessions were heart-warming to me.

"You're incredible with or without me. I can do my best to learn to live with both if it means I get to keep your heart."

I have to say, while my favorite is still Fix Her Up, I truly loved Rosie and Dom's marriage--it's full of hope and warm feelings. Something I thought wouldn't do it for me was Dom's alpha male side. But I really think Tessa Bailey made it work really well. Sure, his alpha side would come out at some interesting moments, but at the same time, it was great to see him letting Rosie be her own person and letting her blossom and grow. The love these two had for each other was astounding and beautiful.

"You're going to rule this world, just like you rule mine."

Tessa has done it again! I was rooting hard for these two. And now I CANNOT WAIT for Bethany and Wes' story! It's an enemies-to-lovers romance!

"Texas called, Wes. It wants its rodeo clown back."
"Oz called. They're missing a witch."
