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?
I loved Rent Me by Brina Brady, and I found myself unable to put the book down.
I find that the blurb does not do justice to the deep complexities that are involved in this story of an abused boy who was rescued by a Russian mobster and his brother.
Raised by Dmitri and his brother Mischa, Brennen has been spoiled rotten. He became Dmitri’s lover when he turned 18. So when Dmitri married a women so no one could find out he was gay it sent Brennen on a course of acting out with self destructive behaviors.
There are many twists and turns in this story, sometimes I wished Brennen would leave Dmitri, and other times I was glad they had each other.
There is a fine line between BDSM which is consensual on both parts, and hat I considered just flat out abuse. I found both Dmitri and Mischa crossed the line a few times.
Otherwise, I enjoyed this story and I would gladly read this author again. I know this review sounds conflicted, but that is what the story brought out in me, conflicting emotions.
