REVIEWED BY LARK

 

TITLE: Rent MeRent Me

SERIES:  Rent Me #1

AUTHOR:  Brina Brady

PUBLISHER: Self-Published

LENGTH: 436 pages

BLURB: Russian mobster spanks his rent boy. Ouch!

Rent Boy Brennen wants to belong to his lover Dmitri Dubrovsky. The Russian mobster controls every inch of his life in and out of bed. Brennen works for Dmitri’s escort service. His only desire is to please his lover. When Dmitri marries Nika, his lover moves him out of their home to an apartment in Beverly Hills and tells him nothing has changed.

What is Brennen going to do now?

Brennen does not understand his lover’s Russian culture not allowing homosexuality. Two different cultures and age difference clash.

Warning:

This is a Gay adult consensual story focused on themes of corporal discipline punishment and explicit sex with light elements of BDSM between adult men over the age of eighteen.

REVIEW: Rent Me was one of those books where I found myself getting into the characters as much as the plot — and sometimes, I wanted to bang their heads together. I absolutely love flawed characters; it’s a common theme in all of the books I adore. Brennen is a bit of a brat, and Dmitri is a bit oblivious, and Nika… Ah, I wanted to send her packing right back to Russia. The character I loved the most was Mischa, Dmitri’s brother; ever dutiful, he goes to extremes to make sure that he does right by Dmitri, but he’s good at what he does.

This book definitely isn’t for people who expect everything to be perfect; this relationship is anything but. However, that’s the way life is, and that’s the way things need to be in order for there to be growth. The author’s style may not be for everyone, but I for one enjoyed the read and can’t wait to pick up the next one.

RATING: I really liked it.

Review: The Runaway Gypsy Boy by Brina Brady #BDSM #MM @BrinaBrady

TITLE: The Runaway Gypsy BoyThe Runaway Gypsy Boy (Irish Runaway #1)

SERIES: Irish Runaway #1

AUTHOR: Brina Brady

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 418 Pages

BLURB:

Twenty-year-old Daniel Serban loses his dancing job and threats of being outed to his family forces him to flee Limerick, Ireland. Daniel fears his father and the other gypsy men will force him to marry his betrothed, or bring bodily harm to him for being gay.

As chance would have it, he ends up in Cleary’s Pub, a gay leather bar in Galway where he meets the grouchy, ginger-bear Ronan O’Riley. Little did Daniel know meeting the ginger Dom would change his life style as he knew it.

Ronan O’Riley has been unable to move on to another sub since the death of his sub a year ago, that is until a troubled gypsy boy steps into Cleary’s. Ronan’s lonely life is about to change.

Can Ronan convince Daniel to trust him or will Daniel’s fears of his past ruin any chance of a relationship? Unexpected heated attraction in the barn ignites their relationship to move forward. Though, the two men have many of the same dreams, Daniel’s secrets and Ronan’s need to gain Daniel’s trust outlines some of the many challenges they face.

REVIEW:

This book was a lot of fun to read. It begins with a glimpse of Daniel’s life as a gypsy. He wants to escape his family and the only way he knows how is to save money working as a dancer. When circumstances force him to finally take the leap and run away, he has the good luck of encountering the sexy ginger dom, Ronan. Ronan owns a ranch and has work and a place to stay for Daniel, so they are a perfect match. As the story progresses and things get heated between the two, Daniel’s family problems catch up with him and put them both in danger.

This book was probably the sweetest and most romantic thing I’ve read from Brina Brady. Although there are BDSM scenes, Daniel is pretty good so he doesn’t earn much in the way of punishment. Ronan is also a very kind person and never would hurt his boy. Though I loved the romance between the two, what I liked the most was the setting and atmosphere. I love traveling, and this book really made me feel like I was there in the Irish countryside. I also loved Daniel’s character and his conflict with his family. Seeing how he interacted with his gypsy family and the crazy things they do made this book really come alive. I recommend The Runaway Gypsy Boy to anyone who likes M/M BDSM and m/m romance.

RATING: I liked it!

BLURB:

Runaway 18-year-old Shane O’Rourke is living under the Huntington Beach Pier.
He carries many secrets from his past. Shane wasn’t allowed to explore his sexuality when he lived home with his father, The Reverend. His submissive nature and desires had to remain fantasies.

Shane meets a dark stranger on the beach. Julien Callier is a Dom from Martinique and is sixteen years older than Shane. Bad boy Shane wants to win the heart of Julien Callier and become his sub. But does he really understand what Julien expects from his boy?

Julien’s heart goes out to this gorgeous boy and he takes him under his wing, grooming him to be his sub. Julien is determined to let Shane experience the good life, even financing his education, but he’s challenged at every turn by Shane’s rebellious nature.

When Shane’s defiant behavior threatens to come between them for good, Julien has to act fast to teach Shane the meaning of real submission.

Can Julien tame the bad boy? Can Shane give up his old ways of stealing, lying, and using drugs? The playroom is open.

REVIEW: 

Fantastic read! Bend Over starts out with the eighteen-year-old, Shane, who has run away from home to escape his intolerant reverend father. Shane isn’t entirely sure about his sexuality, but when he has a sexual encounter in a beach shower with an older French speaking man, Shane’s only thought is that he wants that guy again. Although he doesn’t’ know it at first, Shane has made an impression on the man. Julien is the owner of a BDSM club and after his encounter with Shane, he has to have him as his boy. He makes all the arrangements to assure Shane ends up in his hands.

This book was extremely sexy. I loved how submissive Shane is and how at the same time he’s bratty and rebellious. Shane was missing a loving father figure in his life and Julien quickly fills that role. Since Shane messes up a lot, he earns a lot of punishment, but his punishments are always sexy and far from being harsh. Shane loves being spanked, which makes his discipline even hotter. Bend Over has a happy ending, and the only thing I’m wondering is if Julien will ever get his boy to behave. I recommend this book to anyone who loves M/M BDSM.

RATING:  Loved it!

Review: Spanked in the Woodshed (Bend Over #3) by Brina Brady #BDSM #MM @BrinaBrady

TITLE:  Spanked in the WoodshedSpanked In The Woodshed (Bend Over Series #3)

SERIES:   Bend Over #3

AUTHOR:   Brina Brady

PUBLISHER:   Self-Published

LENGTH:     346 Pages

BLURB:

Shane is in trouble with his Dom again.

He can’t help making matters worse for himself. He wants to please Julien, make him happy, and be the perfect sub for him.

His Dom gives him everything he needs. He helps him learn to deal with his problems the right way, without leaning on drugs. Julien pays his college tuition and lets him work at one of his clubs to be independent and earn his own money.

No matter how hard Shane tries, something or someone always seems to slow their progress. Often, Shane gets in his own way, lying and breaking rules. This time, there are a couple of people trying to ruin their relationship.

Julien is so patient with Shane because he loves him and wants to be the safe place Shane can always come home to. Unfortunately, misunderstandings, lies, and shortcomings on both of their parts threaten to take away the one thing Shane and Julien each need more than anything else: each other.

This story is steamy hot, but it isn’t just a story of BDSM. It is a story of love with a well-deserved HEA end to the series.

REVIEW:

Such a hot and romantic way to end the series! Spanked in the Woodshed begins at a point when Shane gets caught for skipping his classes. Shane is being followed by a scary looking guy at school, but he’s afraid to tell Julien about it. To complicate matters, Julien’s attempt to help a sub who’s in a bad position leads to Shane having doubts about where things stand between him and Julien. Shane’s subsequent actions and Julien’s fear of losing Shane, put Julien in a bad place. He’s never had feelings for any sub like he has for Shane, and he can’t stand the thought of anyone touching him. Despite the bumps in their path, their relationship remains strong while they work to head off the danger they face from Shane’s stalkers.

This book was extremely hot! There’s a lot of sex as well as BDSM scenes, but Shane and Julien never lose their flame. Out of all three books, I think I liked this one the best. Julien is still Shane’s dom, but he’s not as strict and their roll playing is extremely sweet. Julien also has a sense of vulnerability that he didn’t have in the previous books, which seemed to make their relationship even more romantic. I especially loved the happy ending. I recommend this book to anyone who loves BDSM, m/m erotica, dark erotica, and m/m romance.

Young Shane gets himself in trouble again with his Dom. Afraid of Julien thinking he is insane when he believes someone is following him at the university, he makes matters worse for himself. He wants to please him, make him happy, and be the best sub for Julien.

His Dom gives him everything he needs. He helps him learn to deal with his problems the right way and not with drugs. He pays for his college and lets him work at one of his clubs to be independent and earn some of his own money.

Something or someone always seems to get in the way of their progress. This time besides the lies and rule breaking, it’s a couple of different people trying to ruin their relationship.

Julien tries to be patient with Shane. He loves him and wants to be the safe place Shane can always come home to, but misunderstandings, lies, and shortcomings threaten this couple the one thing they need more than anything else, each other.

This story is steamy hot, but it isn’t just a story of BDSM. It is a story of love with a super HEA to end the series.

EXCERPT:

When Shane O’Rourke’s cell phone buzzed on the end table, he straightened up against the headboard in bed to read the message. There was no question as to who was messaging him at noon. Sure enough, Julien’s leather-clad picture wallpapered his screen.  Shane’s stomach constricted and his clammy hands trembled. He inhaled a deep breath to center himself. Fuck no. Julien had told him that they couldn’t meet for lunch because of some business meeting with his partner, Adam. Shane didn’t have a clue what prompted him to check up on him.

Shane hadn’t attended school the entire week. He didn’t mention it to Julien, because he was supposed to attend all of his classes according to their agreement for tuition.

Julien: “Where are you?”

Shane: “UCLA.”

Julien: “Did you take a bus?”

Shane: “My motorcycle.” Why would he ask me if I took a bus? He knows I ride my bike. It doesn’t make any sense.

Three minutes later the bedroom door busted open. Julien stood in the doorway, arms folded and glared at him. Shane knew that particular look, and it never meant anything good on the horizon. He shouldn’t have lied to Julien. He always found out, one way or another. When would he learn from his past mistakes? His father had been right; he was nothing but a liar going straight to hell.
