Unlucky for some.
The woman I loved left me on the thirteenth.
Thirteen months of living together and she walked out the door without looking back, straight into another man’s arms.
She was kind enough to leave something to remind me of her: thirteen thousand pounds worth of debt.
Thirteen; the day I lost my nuts.
Well, I didn’t lose them, cancer took them from me. Better to be a man without balls than one without life.
Still, thirteen sucked… until it didn’t.
Thirteen might just be my new lucky number.
*Thirteen is book #4 in the ‘Love by Numbers’ series. It is interconnected but can be read as a standalone.*

I was really intrigued by the blurb, about this guy who went through so much, a following bad luck circumstances leading to the number thirteen.
How a guy could endure so much? How in his bad luck could be make it?
By sarcasm and tons of humor! The tone of the book surprised me, totally unexpected. No self pity or depressing mood, just an amazing story about two broken people, through their differences make it together.
Harry endured so much in his life. All those events made him insecure, feeling less than a man trying to find a balance in his life. Unsuccessfully. He’s kinda lost and was hiding his sorrow and pain by his playful, joyful behavior.
Delilah was also hit hard by life, by her condition and also her divorce. Deeply affected by her past, she was also acting. Hiding it all, not showing any weakness, because she couldn’t let anyone seeing it. Until a guy named Harry with a banana mobile came into her life, making her swoon and hot!
The two of them? Sparks will fly! They made such an endearing couple, getting together by fate, like these two destined to meet after experiencing the bad. Harry was a perfect guy to woo Delilah, to show how beautiful she was, no matter what. They were each other’s reflexion, with a challenging banter, trying to ease the pain and sadness.
And for once, these two lovebirds got it bad so quickly, that the situation might be insane, leading to some hilarious and sweet moments. They were each other missing piece, the author managed well how to get the two of them into this crazy adventure, writing a new chapter in their lives.
Of course, nothing is easy and each other was scared to show their true colors, especially Delilah. She was the strong, toughest girl Harry had to meet, but even in their hardest and darkest times, them had each other’s back. As friends but mostly as lovers.
A banter off the charts, a chemistry like no one else, a terrific story written with sensibility, full of laughter, a few poignant moments and a great storyline. Finding love is possible for anyone, even for those who didn’t believe in it.
Thirteen isn’t a bad number after all! Trust me, it was so worth it!
My face hurts from smiling,laughing and swooning so much! Loved it!
