Review: Love Her or Lose Her, Tessa Bailey (thank you to NetGalley & the publisher for the gifted copy)
I’ve been debating whether or not to post this review. I don’t like being negative but I also don’t want to be dishonest. So … here we are.
I wanted to love this book. I wanted to lose myself in a fun, steamy romance novel. While Love Her or Lose Her was a steamy (like, STEAMY) read, it fell a bit short on the romance for me.
Dominic was controlling, borderline abusive, and Rosie seemed to be completely oblivious to just how manipulative her husband is. I mean, it may just be me, but a man who demands to “fuck” his wife as a solution to their marriage problems might need to work on some of his own problems before he can fix his marriage.
I know romance is supposed to have a happily ever after endings, but I did not want Rosie and Dominic to end up back together. I found their relationship to be toxic and unhealthy. He didn’t want to love his wife, he wanted to possess her.
