Adding It Up by Chris Owen & Tory Temple

Dogs, a young daughter, and shift work make for an unpredictable and never boring life for new couple Deuce and Trey. Trey is keeping his ex-wife out of their hair, but Deuce is determined to forge a truce between them all. Trey is vehemently opposed to a friendship between Deuce and Holly—she’s the last person Trey wants more interaction with. Deuce persists, however, and tensions between them could spell the end of their relationship.

They’ll have to find a way to make it all add up again—or lose everything.

Avid Reader☆☆☆
M/M Family *one character does identify as confused*

This is the first book that I've read in the series. I never felt that I was missing anything though, so I don't think it's necessary to read book one.

Trey and Deuce have been in a relationship for a while. They seem happy, but there is this underlying tension throughout the story. While they don't have amazing chemistry – they seem almost like roommates throughout this story.

Trey has a past and with that past comes along a daughter, Lacey. She's sweet and funny, loves Deuce and her parents.

Then you have Holly. She was hard for me to like throughout this story. She was immature, petty, and unable to get past her past with Trey. If anything, it would be him who would be upset that she was being such an unruly person. It's not like Trey married her for her money.

Overall, this story seemed to be more about those dang dogs. We see the main characters have some communication issues, but overall, this was just a ho-hum story about learning to communicate.

Chris Owen

CHRIS OWEN lives and writes in eastern Canada. She went to a bunch of schools, learned a lot of things, and now makes stuff up because not to do so is unthinkable. She’s fond of fountain pens, notebooks and day planners, and Steampunk fashions. Lately she’s been watching a lot of documentaries. Chris has a fondness for wool and for summer ales. The two work well together.

Chris is inspired by the day to day minutia of life and finds beauty in the way words go together. She likes texture and richness of experience. She is not shy. Her favorite vegetable is cauliflower.

Tory Temple

TORY TEMPLE lives and works in southern California where she happens to spend a lot of time around firefighters. It makes for excellent storytelling, so Tory definitely uses that to her advantage! She is guardian to three pit bulls who only attack with kisses, two snobby cats, as well as other assorted friends from the animal kingdom. (Husband included.) Her fondest wish is to be a stay-at-home dog mom. You can tempt her with promises of cheese and/or Mexican food. On Saturday nights, she is usually watching Netflix and thinking about how to get the newest firemen in her head to hook up. Tory loves reader e-mails and looks forward to hearing from anyone who wants to drop her a line.
