Strength in Numbers is another masterpiece by Brad Vance. Jesse and Marc are back in an adventurous and exciting cyberthriller. This is the second book in the Game Players series, and a sequel to Would I Lie to You. They are best read in that order, not only should you not miss the amazing first book, but it’s more enjoyable if you understand their history, the connections, and the references. If you are a seasoned BradVance fan, you get his usual brilliance: flawless writing, witty banter, and the always present sexual tension, creating sizzling hotness in not two seconds but two lines flat.
The story is fast paced, intriguing and very informative, giving just enough details about bitcoin, the cyber world, and codebreaking to get the reader understand the basics, but not too much to make it boring. We get the perfect balance here and I was hooked from the beginning. I love this author and his ability to take me away to places in a heartbeat and keep me on my toes till the last page! We also get a taste of Brad’s trademark specialty, the famous background story. It is short, but gives a wonderful extra layer to Marc’s character.
Marc and Jesse is a favorite couple of mine. They are hot and crazy-smart with a unique kind of chemistry. Their relationship is strong and fun, their love for each other not the in-your-face kind but always there, always palpable. I truly enjoyed every page of this story and can’t wait to find out what comes next to the guys. Highly recommended!
FIVE BIG CYBERSTARS!!!
Marc smiled as he made clinking sounds in the galley of his private jet. He already had the black slacks on, so it was the work of a moment to take off his polo shirt and slip into the white epauletted button-down short-sleeve shirt of a steward. The wings were already attached to the lapels, and he’d even had a name tag made.
“Here you go, sir,” he said as he handed Jesse his drink on a tray. Jesse was already involved in something on his phone, and he absentmindedly reached for it.
Then he paused, sensing that something had changed. He looked up to see Marc dressed as an airline steward, his eyes dancing with heat.
Marc didn’t smile as he said, “Is there anything else I can get you, sir?”
Jesse swallowed. “Maybe a warm blanket.”
Marc took the drink from his hand. He pressed a button on the side of Jesse’s chair.
“The seat fully reclines into a bed, sir. Let me make you comfortable.”
As the seat back flattened and the base lifted Jesse’s feet up, Marc pushed another button, and the chair’s arms lowered out of the way, which gave him room to straddle Jesse’s hips.
He put his hands on Jesse’s chest, and Jesse reached up to finger his collar. “How did you earn those wings, steward?”
Marc idly stroked Jesse’s hand where it lingered on the wings. “Oh, those, sir? For achieving membership in the Mile High Club. Are you a member?” Marc began to grind his ass against Jesse’s crotch, feeling the transformation below his slacks.
“You know, I am not. I’ve never been invited to join.”
Marc leaned in to whisper in his ear. “Let me be the first to welcome you, then.”
