    One thought on “Have A Little Faith In Me”

    1. Differentd I liked it, a lot. This is the first Brad Vance I have read, but there will definitely be more once my credit card bills become more manageable. I am presuming that Brad is a man? It's hard to know these days. He/she writes m/m sex like a man, it's not so graphically descriptive.his focus is more on the plot and the attraction and the love rather than the physicality of the "in-and-out" which is my preference.The story starts with the "Battle of the Bands" and the initial meeting of D [...]

    2. ​​​​Have a Little Faith in Me is certainly not going to be for everyone. The role of religion and the bigotry that is all too often justified by it and how it has shaped these men's lives is prominent. And while I am angered by the bigotry we see, I am also heartened by watching the MC's overcome their programming and become happy and healthy individuals, in spite of the obstacles thrown their way.This book starts out in the present time, when Rocky and Dex meet. But then, to give the re [...]

    3. I love stories about characters that have really had to fight to escape their backgrounds in order to find real freedom and happiness. This is the case with Rocky and Dex, both musicians who as kids, then teenagers, grow up in the deep south and although coming from very different backgrounds are still similar in many ways.They both first meet at a music festival and there cause a scene that soon becomes a media highlight for all the wrong reasons. Rocky is out, but Dex isn’t although Rocky im [...]

    4. Brad's books are always either a hit or miss with me. This was a definite miss. I wanted a love story. I wanted to see these two people get to know each other and fall in love. What I got was two individual stories. I got to see how these guys grew up. How Rocky dealt with being a preachers kid in the Deep South of Georgia. Finally escaping his fathers clutches and heading off to college. Living as an openly gay man. Joining a band and making a career. How Dex hid being gay, growing up also in t [...]

    5. Brad has done an amazing job with this story of two men evolving from a family life of denying who they really are. Rocky had a famous evangelist father who convinced many that gays were dangerous and going to hell. Rocky who was sheltered at first from the reality of the world until he met his best friend that introduced him to the music and the life he could have, even the life of a gay man. Dex grew up in a dysfunctional family; father a drunk, mother who was somewhat religious, and siblings [...]

    6. I really liked this concept and the meeting of these two MC's. However, the author quickly begins a series of chapters relating to flashbacks for both MC's and this becomes too long and tedious. Completely disrupting the flow of the new relationship. When we finally get back to that new relationship, there's no time spent on the development of their attraction and coming together. Especially for Dex. He's so deeply in the closet and there's no transition shown for him to overcome all his deep se [...]

    7. Just not enoughIt started out good with Rocky and Dex and I was prepared for their passionate romance that Dexter would deny and co.e to grips with. No, instead we were thrown back into the past and had to suffer their in tot a l boredom. These were the 2000 for crying out loud and yet they it was told was if Norman Jr. Was living in the 1950's. It just didn't fit. Then we finally reach the present and they love each other and it's happily ever after. So they meet one maybe two times in the begi [...]

    8. As nice as the backstory was - where was the romance??? It started with their first and second meeting, then flashback to their respective lives, starting with Rocky at age 6 and when finally reaching the today from the beginning - wham! I love you's and HEA. Great. Wonderful. - Not! I wanted more of their story TOGETHER!!!I'm thoroughly miffed. 2 stars for the writing that got me to finish this book.

    9. 2 singers, one openly gay & the other so deep in the closet. One night of a battle sing off & everything changes. Then the book goes back to Rocky & Dex's past & their religious background in the south. I really enjoyed this book. A great read! 2hot singers, what's not to like ;) Well Done Brad!!

    10. Dex Dexter comes from a southern homophobic upbringing, with music as his only outlet for his true soul. Rocky McCoy is the son of a homophobic southern preacher who lays the ills of the world at the doorstep of all gay men and women. For Rocky music and art are his salvation. The story takes the reader through their journey from the past to the present time of their meeting. Dex is buried so deep in the closet that a team of horses could not bring him out. Rocky is out and proud, which makes De [...]

    11. OMFG !!!! This has got to be one of my favourite of Brad's books BY FAR !!!Absolutely loved it, loved the dual pov's, the way Brad wrote this is AMAZING !!! It will make you laugh, cry, and angry in places, but not angry at Brad angry at the bigotry !! Brad has highlighted the modern day societies homophobia amazingly and left me wanting more of Dex and Rocky !!

    12. Have A Little Faith In Me is not your average romance story. Yes we do have the opposites attract scenario as Rocky, an out and proud rocker, and Dex, a country crooner who is in total denial about his own orientation, are forced to share a stage during an overbooked festival. The attraction that sparks between them as they face off on the stage is buried way down deep though beneath their mutual animosity. After the show, they each go their separate ways, hoping to never meet again. But their f [...]

    13. Exceedingly well written book about two musicians, one country, Dex, one rock, Rocky, who meet at a music festival and nearly come to blows because the festival reps scheduled their sets at the same time. When they get in each other's faces, turns out they have incendiary chemistry and videos and pictures taken of them arguing with each other clearly see it. All heat and smoldering looks. Then the book takes an interesting turn into flashbacks and we see their parallel rise to stardom. Both were [...]

    14. Hot musicians.s please!!I was really excited to read this book when I read the synopsis.t often will I pass up a story about two hot musicians falling in love!I really like Brad's writing drew me into the story, and really allowed me to 'be' in the characters head space.I liked how the story involved the struggles with society that the LGBTQ community still faces, and how that drives a persons life decisions's shocking and disheartening to me that there is still such inequality and hate today. P [...]

    15. I got to start out by saying, I loved this book but it's very difficult for me to review. First off, I bought the book because it was on sale and I thought it would be ok for a cheap read. The first few chapters I kind of hate read, finding flaws wherever I coulden the flashbacks started.The flashbacks totally took the book to a different level. The author was able to convey so much pain and longing that was so easy for me to connect with. It brings the song "Killing Me Softly" to mind.I so appr [...]

    16. Yikes what a big disappointment for me. If your looking for a sweet love story with very little passion, well maybe this book is for you. If your looking for something hot, steamy, intense, passionate, love affair do not waste your time. I do not like reading books with a lot of flashback scenes, and unfortunately most of this book is just that. You are introduced to Dex and his band, and Rocky and his band then at 13% the author takes you back to their childhood to try to build foundation to wh [...]

    17. A story of two seemingly different guys who grew up in a time when being gay was drummed into them as being morally wrong, by their families. One eventually breaks free and lives his life as an openly gay man and the other still buries his true self in order to maintain his burgeoning singing career. A double booking of stage time brings the two men together and sparks fly. The tale jumps back in time and lets us into the lives of the two MC's from when they were young boys, showing us the sad w [...]

    18. This is a tough one to rate. I did not love it at all. It was OK to me. I think what bothered me the most is the way the story jumped around. We are in the present, then all of a sudden we are thrown into the past of Rocky, then the past of Dex, then more past of Rocky, then more past of Dex, then all of a sudden we are in the present again and all is well. I appreciate knowing a bunch of the history, but I would've preferred to read more about how they actually got together rather than all of t [...]

    19. DNF at 30%Hm. Well, I loved the plot. In fact, I read one with rather similar idea (rock star versus country singer against the world, titled A Little Bit Country). But the executions and writing style for this one just felt off for me. The MCs were exasperating, there were too many bigotry and prejudice served in a plate for me to digest. The long flash back chapters were the last straw, I just couldn't pull through.

    20. Well, this story took a complete other direction than I expected. I thought this would be a hot, dirty and intense story about two sexy alpha male singers giving in to their sexual attraction and falling in love. What I got was a story (actually 70% were two parallel told stories) about two teenagers finding their sexual identity. Which wasn't bad, just not what I expected.

    21. Loved itThis was a great book! Great characters, storyline with angst and a happy ending! Dex and Rocky find their way to eachother, through all the stress and family issues they deal with. Well written, I really enjoyed it!!

    22. "Words of love, so soft and tender, won't win a girl's heart anymore.If you love her, then you must send herSomewhere where she's never been before."John Phillips, The Mamas & the PapasIt's appropriate to start this review with lyrics, because this is a story about music and the words are kinda appropriate.I've been a fan of Brad's writing for years. Each book has been different. From raunchy BDSM erotica to realistic gritty historicals to jock sports romance. There's been animals, disabilit [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book, but I felt there was so much focus on the MCs' background that the present relationship happened in the blink of an eye. And there was no distinct separation between past and present. So when the past caught up, it took me a minute to figure that out. And it seemed like the fell in love without even really spending any time together. So it wasn't quite believable. I liked the backstory, but felt there was too much of it and not enough present buildup of a relationship. They [...]

    24. Sekedar info, sebelum membaca Have A Little Faith In Me, saya mengawali bacaan lain dari pengarang yang sama berjudul Would I Lie to You?, namun saya putuskan mereview dulu novel ini karna mumpung masih fresh dalam ingatan meski telah selesai dibaca beberapa hari yang lalu. Novel dibuka dengan adegan bersitegang antara bintang rockstar Norman Rocky McCoy dengan penyanyi country Dex Dexter saat melakukan cek sound. Dari pertemuan itu tumbuh rasa ketidaksukaan serta ketertarikan antara satu sama l [...]

    25. I tried to come up with a good and structured review but I’m too impatient and not a good writer so here’s all I could think to tell about this story.First of all, I would like to start with the “Synopsis vs content” topic.To speak honestly, I only bought this book because it was free on amazon and I have a hard time resisting the temptation of adding more books to my TBR. I know it’s bad but I don’t care. I told myself “Why not?” but really, I knew nothing about the story or the [...]

    26. FiveStarsThis was my first novel of Brad Vance's but it won't be my last. This was aheart-warming, gut-wrenching, realistic journey with our Hero's, who are both struggling internally with their sexuality, during a time when it wasn't as accepted to come out. The story is told in dual POV's, and I loved that aspect.Both men have a gift when it comes to music. The author including lyrics of songs added an extra personal touch to an already heart-warming story.When Norman aka Rocky meets Dex, they [...]

    27. There were some nice turns of phrase and observations, from "ke a cobra dance that Dex couldn't stop watching" to "Dex willed time to dilate, justify every extra second;" and, "lf-segregation was more powerful than any law." In two particular cases, Vance did an excellent job at his own distillation of key moments. First, Rocky looked at Dex's face and then the moment was gone. "He'd seen the look on a thousand men, that moment of freedom, of joy in being themselves, that they just as quickly bu [...]
