When I read Would I Lie to You? by Brad Vance, it was my first time reading anything by this author. I absolutely love Jesse and Marc, and I really love the author’s writing style so I was eagerly awaiting book 2, Strength in Numbers. I even held onto it for a few days because I wanted to live in suspense. And, it didn’t disappoint me, at all.
One of the many things I love about Brad’s writing is his humor and the humor/banter he instills in his characters. Marc and Jesse are a perfect match, they balance each other, and the humor they have between them is laugh out loud hilarious. I don’t how many times I caught myself with this huge smile across my face as I was reading.
Another thing that I love about this series is the author’s capability to relay the story to the reader where it’s easy to comprehend what’s going on… I’m not a math major by any means and if you have already read the first book, you know that the concept is numbers. The author, without dumbing it down, broke it down in layman’s terms making it easy for this reader to follow along and not feel lost in the journey… I’m not even going to try and explain it because the author does it much better, but it’s very interesting and I was definitely sucked in from the first page till the last.
Probably my most favorite parts of this series, Strength in Numbers especially, are the sex scenes. I know you want to get lost in the sex, feel the emotion and the passion that is driving the characters during these intense moments and you do feel that, but what I love the most – is the humor and banter that Jesse and Marc feed off of…
You may be reading along and starting to get all hot and bothered by the scene and then one of them throws out something hilarious and changes the whole visual. Now, you are smiling from ear to ear and hoping no one sees you and wants an explanation as to why you are laughing so much…
Overall, I adored this book, I love this series, and I love the author’s writing style and how he evokes a visual in your mind with the scenes that are playing out on your tablet in front of you. There’s everything you could want in a book, in a story that will pull you in and take you on a helluva journey. Highly recommended. 5 stars from me.
