Zoe has worked for the
vampire lawyers for almost ten years now. She has also fought
her attraction to them for the same amount of time. When she
is yelled at by Dorian for trying to help him after he is
injured she finally has had enough. She decides to take a two
week vacation and will clean out her office when she comes
On her way out of the office
she spies a flyer advertising Executive Decisions, an escort
service guaranteeing discreet escorts for the professional
woman. She momentarily wonders if this is the same service
that Dorian and Sebastian work for but, lets that thought go.
While the vacation will be expensive she decides that she has
the money and deserves this time being treated well.
When Zoe opens the door and
sees that her escort is to be not one man but two vampires,
her former bosses in fact, she is momentarily stunned. Then
she decides this is the time to finally see if she is more
than just attracted to them. She makes a deal with them that
she won’t cancel the arrangement for the 2 weeks if they agree
to not boss her around or yell at her. She wants to be
herself and not have to live up to anyone else’s standards.
Sebastian is willing to do
whatever it takes to win her over but can Dorian conquer his
fears and accept her for what and who she is?
By the Numbers
is a fast paced story dealing with love and loss. I
thoroughly loved how Dorian was made to seem like the mean man
when what he is trying to do is protect his heart. The author
does a wonderful job of having the two men have very different
personalities but in the end fit so well together you have to
take them as a package deal. If you like vampires, ménages
and a fast paced story By the Numbers is one you
will have to pick up.
