‘Breaking Roadblocks’ (Bend Over Series Book 4) by Brina Brady #LGBT #Review #NewRelease #BDSM #Series

via ‘Breaking Roadblocks’ (Bend Over Series Book 4) by Brina Brady #LGBT #Review #NewRelease #BDSM #Series

Why I read this book: This series is one of the first BDSM stories that I had read. It was the beginning of Brina’s writing career as well and I have learned so much from her. I’ve watched her grow her craft (and she seriously gets better with each book she writes) and have come to rely on the fact that she is always respectful of the trope she’s writing and informative. She doesn’t shy away from the messy parts that make her stories real for me.
Oh man… this is the last book of this series! I feel like I know Julien and Shane after all this time. I am instantly taken back to the first book and how the meeting between these two men went. It wasn’t smooth sailing by any means and their journey has been fraught with many challenges. In this story, one of the main challenges they face is having an interracial relationship. To be honest, I never even gave thought to that being a challenge that people still face. I guess that it’s just not an issue for me in that I’ve never had issue with the color of someone’s skin. I suppose though, as long as there are people who are jealous and racist and bigoted, there will be these senseless hardships as well as continuous dangers that people have to deal with on a daily basis. I really hope that one day this will only be something that’s revisited in stories and a non issue in real life. One of the things that I love most about Brina’s storytelling is that when she writes a BDSM scene she is very realistic and respectful. She makes a point to let us see how her characters feel about what they are experiencing. Both the Dom and the sub. She also teaches us that it can be an entire lifestyle for some and not so much for others, but it’s ok because while there are many things that the BDSM culture has in common, it is also very much tailored to the individuals and couples needs and wants.
Shane… I just love this young man! He’s still needy, he always will be because that’s just who he is. What I loved to see though, was that even when he got himself into trouble, he was quicker now than in the other books to see the errors that he was making. He’s done some growing up. I think that what impressed me most about this character is that for as needy and submissive as he is, he could still stay true to what he knew he needed and didn’t let people dictate who or how he could be. He will always be one of my favorite characters because he might be a little bit misdirected when on his own, but deep down, he has a good heart.
Julien… This is a character that I’ve also watched grow and that I’ve come to love. He started out, at least for me, as someone who I thought might just have his own interests at heart. I was happy to be proven wrong about that because he clearly knows what Shane needs and exactly how to deliver it. This character is a planner. He plans things right down to the tiniest details and since it’s what Shane needs, and he has his best interests at heart, they are absolutely perfect for each other. And I love the scenes that they do together. When these two men do a scene and they do so many different things, they sizzle!!! I’ve learned a great deal from their perspectives.
Thank you Brina Brady for these characters. They have touched me and I love them.

Breaking Roadblocks is coming soon!

Hi!

I’m so excited to announce the my new book will be coming out soon. It’s with the betas, then to my editor Tina. I worked long and hard on this book. I began in January and it took this long. Along the way, there was a death in the family and some health issues.  I also discovered Photoshop and love it. I created a new website for Pre-made E-book Covers. My e-book covers are $30. I lost a number of authors friends because they couldn’t afford to publish their books, so I’m offering my services. You can’t skimp on an editor.

I built this website in one day at Wix. They make it easy, no coding.

Here’s the cover of my new book, it the last one on the right. No, I didn’t make the cover.

All my books are on KU.

Thanks for stopping by.

Rent Me by Brina Brady (Rent Me Series #1)

I have a new cover for Rent Me. I never dreamed I’d write a series with 4 books.

Rent Me #1, Own Me #2, Make Me #3 and For Me #4(Christmas in Russia Novella)

BK1 Rent Me E-Book Cover

Brennen Brady, a 21-year-old rent boy falls in love with Dmitri Dubrovsky, a 36-year-old Russian mafia man. Dmitri rescues Brennen from an abusive environment and places him under his protection by moving him in his home in exchange for his respect, the beginning of their domestic discipline relationship. Dmitri controls every inch of his life in and out of bed. Brennen works as an escort for Dmitri’s Forbidden Desires Escort Service. Dmitri is everything to Brennen. His only need is to please his lover by submitting to him.

Dmitri Dubrovsky knew Brennen had to be with him for the rest of his life. He wanted him, every part of him. He wanted to take care of him and erase all his pain. Brennen needed him like no other living soul in this entire world. And Dmitri needed Brennen to need him as much as he needed Brennen. No one will ever harm him again. He made a pledge to himself that he would protect him and never let anyone hurt him. He would kill to protect him. The major problem for Dmitri was his Russian culture did not tolerate a man loving another man.

The power exchange between them serves both their needs. Dmitri needed to dominate and Brennen loved to submit. Brennen desires his lover to be his master in a BDSM relationship. Their long struggle for the two to define their place in each other’s heart confronts their entire core of the relationship.

Mischa Dubrovsky, Brennen’s security guard and limo driver, is also Dmitri’s straight brother who encourages Brennen to date girls. Mischa loves him like a brother and disapproves of his brother’s relationship. Mischa’s main job is Dmitri’s hit man for his illegal drug traffic business and gay escort service. Dmitri and Mischa Dubrovsky originated from Russia. Brennen desperately desires to belong to the Russian Dubrovsky family. He is unsure what his place is and if he belongs anywhere.

The story captures their sexual and emotional struggles to define their relationship. When Dmitri marries Nika to protect his name from his friends and family, his business marriage shakes their love. Brennen does not understand his lover’s Russian culture not allowing homosexuality. Two different cultures and age difference clash. Brennen does not believe his lover has a business arrangement with his wife.

The story begins with Brennen upset over his lover’s marriage. Dmitri moves Brennen out of their home to an apartment in Beverly Hills with another rent boy while he attends USC to study criminal law and works as a rent boy at night. Devastated Brennen did not know how to deal with being number two to his lover while they continued their sexual relationship as if nothing changed.

Brennen is coming of age and questions if he is gay or bisexual. Brennen doubts Dmitri’s love when he marries Nika. Feeling hurt and displaced, he seeks a plan B if Dmitri doesn’t divorce his wife. Dmitri must decide between his love for Brennen and his Russian pride that demands him to be straight with a wife and family. He tells Brennen that he is working on a solution for them to be together. Either way Dmitri will lose the respect from his Russian friends and family or lose Brennen’s love.

Stubborn Brennen refuses to quit being an escort until Dmitri divorces Nika. The battling of two stubborn men who want to be together without giving up anything. Brennen wants to remain a rent boy and Dmitri can’t accept being gay.

Mischa’s dilemma is to choose what he thinks is best for Brennen or what he knows Dmitri wants. Mischa’s brotherly love for Brennen caused an internal battle with his allegiance to his brother. Can their relationship survive Brennen’s clients, Dmitri’s marriage and Mischa’s opinion? How will they save their relationship?

Here is a new review on Rent Me.

Rent Me Series in Review Week: Rent Me, book 1

Brina’s Brant: Facebook Blocked my Rent Me link again.

This is really getting old. I don’t bother or hurt anyone, but I have enemies who hate me and my Rent Me series. This has been an on going issue with Facebook. Someone reported Amazon’s Rent Me link and it’s deemed as a security risk. SECURITY RISK???? An Amazon link is not a security risk.

I found a great review on Rent Me today, so I posted the review and I wanted to add the link. That’s how I found out. Who are these enemies? Why me?

Anyway, here is the awesome review for Rent Me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to this series!
By Lisa Con December 12, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved Rent Me! This story revolves around the lives of Brennen, an escort, and Dimitri and Mischa, two brothers from Russia who juggle around their love, power and muscle to keep Brennen safe (mostly from himself!). Dimitri, who is fourteen years older than Bren, is everything to him. Father figure, daddy, lover, Dom, and closest confidant. Mischa, also loves and cares for Brennen, and will discipline Bren when he steps out of line. He disapproves of his brother and Bren’s relationship, but will reluctantly tolerate it because he loves them both. Brennen has had a horrible childhood and these two brothers want to do right by him. The funny thing is, Bren really deserves the discipline. His heart is in the right place all the time but he never thinks about the consequences of his poorly made decisions until it’s too late. And … every time, Dmitri and/or Mischa are there to bail him out.

I couldn’t help but feel bad for Bren because his self esteem and confidence was almost non existent ~ he was abused and neglected from such a young age and his story broke my heart ~

“… hiding under his covers at home to avoid everyone seemed like a worthy idea. People only hurt him. Why couldn’t this man love me? What was so wrong with me that no one wanted me? Not even my own mother.”

This story has everything; mild BDSM, passion, humor, angst and love, all in equal parts. The attention to detail throughout the whole book gave my minds eye the perfect visual to navigate the pages of this enchanting story. I highly recommend this book and I’m looking forward to starting the second one in the series just to see what mischief and trouble Bren gets himself into and what Dmitri and Mischa need to do to bail him out … again!

Rent Me is the first book in the Rent Me Series.
Own Me is book 2.
Make Me is book 3.

For Me is the Christmas story for the Rent Me series.

Brina Brady, one of my friends on Facebook, is currently under attack by trolls who have ensured that she cannot post the Amazon.com link to her Rent Me ebook on Facebook.  You can’t use the button on the Amazon page, copy the link, or use any of the various short URLs.

The UK Amazon page (and presumably other sites) work as normal, but as we all know, the US site is the main one, where the most sales are made, and when it is the first book in a series that is targeted it is highly damaging.

Sales on ebooks are in a slump as it is, and this sort of vicious attack doesn’t help at all.

But we can help a fellow author by helping to spread the word and get the site unblocked.  Here are a few things you can do.
