Rating: 4 stars out of 5

by-the-numbers-by-chris-owensDeuce is coming home from work and find his apartment on fire. His first thought is to Q, his very pregnant dog. Luckily Trey,the hot fireman, has saved her. From that moment,a new friendship and lately more will born between deuce and Trey.

By The Numbers by Chris Owens and Tory Temple was a success to me this second time too. I remembered this story, I bought it when it was first published some years ago. I read a lot and if I remind a book, it means it really impressed me in a positive way.
That’s why I requested this second edition, I was curious to see how it was changed and how (or if) my tastes were changed too. Well I still loved it.

I liked Deuce a lot, how joyous and enthusiastic he was, how caring he was of Q and her puppies, the way he approached life and its difficult times, always with an easiness hard to find around.

I loved how Trey and Deuce became first friends, knew each other; of course the attraction was there since they met but it was measured and the authors left space to the knowing part first, not to the chemistry. That said there were a lot of sex scenes and they were really hot. There were a lot of puppies, adorable and messy as only puppies could be.

There was some child time and some adult time, even at the fire station.

By The Numbers by Chris Owens and Tory Temple is a light and quick read, cute and well done. I adored it and I feel to highly recommend it.

Cover Artist: Maria Fanning.  Cover is adorable.
