One of Oprah Magazine's 21 Romance Novels That Are Set to Be the Best of 2020 + Marie Claire's Best New Books of 2020

New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey returns with a unique, sexy romantic comedy about a young married couple whose rocky relationship needs a serious renovation...

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 hippie. 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.

"Her voice feels as fresh and contemporary as a Netflix rom-com." Entertainment Weekly

I just loved seeing this so-much-in-love couple pull their marriage back together by working on their own issues. Even better, it was still sexy fun. 4 stars.

There's not much more I can add to RosaReads2's review, so check that out. I think I may have liked it a bit better than the first one

I love a good married romance and sadly there aren't many of them in the romance market. For the most part, I enjoyed Bailey's take on this underused trope. Like the heroine, I'm married to a Puerto Rican military veteran, so maybe that's why I could relate to a number of aspects to the story. Maybe, it's simply due to being in a somewhat longer marriage and this author was able to tap into common struggles. More than likely, it was a combination of the two. Put simply, on some level, I was able to relate to this couple and their various struggles. The marital aspects of strife and the decline of communication rang true, as did some of the marriage counseling. Even if, for the sake of humor, it was a little OTT. In addition to the comedy, there were a number of heart-tugging and swoon-worthy moments that moved me. If I overlook the somewhat excessive sex scenes that are common for this author, as well as an annoying term of endearment, I can say that overall I enjoyed the couple's story and the concentration of rebuilding a broken relationship.
