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.

With their marriage on hold, Shane begins to stumble. All he wants is to be Julien’s husband but he just can’t seem to make the right choices when it comes to proving to Julien that he is his top priority.


To make matters harder, Shane is being forced to see the hatred in the world. Being in an interracial BDSM relationship isn’t welcomed by all. Most surprisingly from Shane’s so called friends and others from their small BDSM community.


Julien and Shane work together breaking through roadblocks to stay together as a black and white BDSM couple. No matter how hard Shane tries, he gets in his own way, with a little help from a couple of people actively working against them as a couple.


The couple fights against their enemies to stay together. When things get rough, they fight for their love.

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

Breaking Roadblocks is coming soon!


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.

Today, I am happy to host the talented Brina Brady on my blog! She’s here to dish on the  amazing career she held before becoming an author, as well as the second book in her Irish Runaway Series, Master Cleary’s Boys, which sounds like your next favorite read.

Before we get to the interview, here’s a little bit more about the book.



Desperate to escape the clutches of an increasingly sadistic and abusive Dom, Kevin and Jack seize their opportunity to escape and runaway to Galway. They shave their heads and do their best to avoid being detected while searching for a new Dom who is prepared to take them on as a package deal. Their running leads them to Cleary’s Pub—a bar full of leather-clad Doms and subs, owned and run by Master Cleary…

Master Cameron Cleary was in need of a new sub—it had been far too…

Hi Peeps,

Well, Master Cleary’s Boys is FREE on KU and available for purchase now.


I’d like to share a great review for my book. This book is book 2 in the series but it can be read as a standalone. MMM/BDSM

One Dom and two subs…
Sara Long rated it 5 Stars it
This is an extremely well-written book. The story itself is steady-paced, and the author consistently builds up the plot and sub-plot and tidily follows through on tying up all the story threads. The characters are still poignantly framed in my mind, even a couple of days after finishing the book, and the painful physical torture Kevin had to endure at the hands of the evil Mr. Higgins continues to haunt me and sadden my heart.
The mood and tale were darker and more dramatic than I had predicted from reading the book blurb, but the author’s expert storytelling convinced me to continue turning the pages. The only thing that wasn’t intuitively obvious to me was the timeframe for this work – it takes place in present day, but for some reason, my mind kept wanting to process it as happening in the early part of the 20th century.
The dark, troubling, and somber scene of the book is brightened and strengthened by Master Cleary’s protective support of and unconditional love for Jack and Kevin, and the HEA builds upon the underlying elements of hope, closure and new beginnings threaded throughout the story.

Desperate to escape the clutches of an increasingly sadistic and abusive Dom, Kevin and Jack seize their opportunity to escape and runaway to Galway. They shave their heads and do their best to avoid being detected while searching for a new Dom who is prepared to take them on as package deal. Their running leads them to Cleary’s Pub—a bar full of leather-clad Doms and subs, owned and run by Master Cleary…


Master Cameron Cleary was in need of a new sub—it had been far too long since he’d had a boy in his life. Each night as he ran his pub filled with leather-clad Doms, accompanied by their Subs, he became more aware of how solitary his life had become. That is, until two young cousins turned up one night looking for work, a place to stay, and more intriguingly a Dom who would take them both. Something about their recently shaved heads and skittish demeanor stirred his interest and protective nature. But did he want two subs, and was he prepared to deal with whatever trouble these boys were hiding?

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.
