Financial abuse, a controlling husband, and an unhealthy relationship, oh my! I’ll be honest, I really didn’t love the first book in the series – Fix Her Up – but I decided to give the second one, Love Her or Lose Her, a shot. The reason I decided to try it out was because it had a different story than most of the romances I read. This book is about two characters who are already married and have gone through their meet cute and their love story and who are now considering getting divorced. Somehow, this book was even worse than the first and I definitely will not be reading anything else that this author puts out.
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.
