Why I read this book: I read the Authors other book series and knew I would like this one as well.
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
Shane just turned 18 and is about to graduate from high school in New Jersey. He has been raised in a home with strict religious beliefs and a father that has never accepted him. Shane rebels, gets into trouble and eventually runs away to California. Since he doesn’t have very much money and doesn’t know a soul there, he ends up homeless sleeping under a bridge on a beach.
One morning Shane sees a man standing on the beach looking out-of-place in his suit and is instantly drawn to him. Shane is confused why he attracted to the man because he is straight and has been told over and over by his father that he will go to hell for having thoughts like this. But deep down he knows he needs this man.
Julian is a 34-year-old wealthy black man. When he sees Shane living on the beach he knows he has to have the young blonde man. He wants to give him a good life and send him to school but most of all make him his sub. Julian realizes that this won’t be a simple task. He needs to come up with a plan to win Shane over. After some scheming Julian gets what he wants and has Shane living with him. Their relationship is no where close to being easy, there are many issues that interfere with their happiness.
Can Julian get Shane under control? Does Shane really love Julian or is he a safety net? Will Julian be able to teach Shane how to be a true submissive?
This is the third book by Brina Brady I have had the opportunity to read. I loved the first two books in the Rent Me series and I enjoyed reading Bend Over as well. The writing style is good and holds your attention till the very end. I like the fact that Shane and Julian’s relationship isn’t instantly perfect. There are problems and they do have to work through them in order to succeed in a relationship. The sex scenes are hot with BDSM aspects but nothing too extreme.
I look forward to reading the sequel when it becomes available.
