Love Her Or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey
Narrated by Charlotte North
Standalone with a series. Married Couple.
Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey has been on my Kindle TBR for three years, and I finally decided to get the audiobook. I didn’t read the first in the series, but never noticed I missed anything. The story is right up my alley, I love a good married couple romance. My 29 year marriage had very similar issues, so this story really hit home for me, but….well, read on.
Dominic was deployed and since his return, his wife Rosie has felt a disconnect. They have HOT, passionate steamy sex every Tuesday, but that’s it. There is no communication other than daily roommate stuff. They don’t date, they don’t spent time together. But the second she sees him, her panties get wet. 🤮
She is working at a miserable job she hates, but has dreamed of opening a restaurant for years. So she came home one night and decided she’s done. Dom is shocked. The doofus had no idea there is a problem in his marriage because he provides for her…so much he bought her a house without telling her!
So they go to see an emergency therapist who can either cure marriage or decide it should end in 4 sessions. THIS PISSED ME OFF. I happen to be a pot smoking hippie, so I have nothing against that, but they made a joke of therapy.
I love sex scenes in a book, but for me story comes first. The only thing this couple seemed to have was hot sex. I wrote this note while listening. “OMG How many times can her panties get wet? She may need a doctor since it happens no matter where she is and it’s beyond her control.”
“If there was anything in this world worth fighting for, it was his wife.”
Dom was such an old fashioned New York caveman. He loved his wife so much but had no idea how to show it except by being a jealous oaf. He and his friends couldn’t even stand that their wives went for a girls night and had to follow them! I did like, however, that Dom finally SAW his wife, but it made me sad it took so long.
- I loved reading about an already married couple finding their way back to each other.
- A very relatable storyline except for the quack of a therapist.
- It showed that both partners are at blame for the problems.
- He finally really saw his wife.
- Dominic clearly had some kind of PTSD but it was never even suggested.
- The therapist is an insult to therapy.
- This couple couldn’t be near each other without him getting hard and her getting wet.
- I like sex scenes, but there was more sex than story.
- 3rd person.
The fake New York accent for him didn’t really work for me. I liked her narration for the female parts.
The Down & Dirty:
