The entire Dubrovsky family heads to snowy Russia for a family Christmas. Brennen fears Dmitri’s homophobic father’s rejection. Dmitri believes when they present their daughter, that all will be forgiven, but steps into a mess upon arriving with his husband. Instead of greeting Dmitri and Brennen with hugs and kisses, Grandma Dubrovsky whisks baby Dominika away, leaving them alone with Dmitri’s angry father. Can they stay if it means abiding by his rules?
This is a story of love, forgiveness, and miracles during the holiday season. Dmitri and Brennen overcome issues which have been troubling their relationship, each growing and learning how to best be what the other needs. There are many surprises during the holiday season for all of them.
This is best if read after Make Me (Book 3 in the Rent Me series.) If you read it as a standalone, you will surely wish you had read the first three books.

For Me is a wonderful Christmas novella in the Rent Me series by Brina Brady. If you haven’t read the first three books of the Rent Me series then I recommend doing so before you continue reading the rest of the review due to possible spoilers from the prior books.
Brennen, Dmitri and the rest of the Dubrovsky family are heading to Russia to spend time with Dmitri’s parents before leaving for a two-week vacation. Brennen doesn’t want to go to Russia because of the way Dmitri’s homophobic father treated him the last time he visited. Reluctantly he ends up going without a fight for Dmitri’s sake. He also wants Dominica to be able to spend some quality time with her grandparents.
Dmitri tries to comfort Brennen by telling him that once his parents meet their granddaughter that they will come around and accept that Brennen is his husband. Unfortunately, when they arrive that isn’t the case. Dmitri’s mother takes the baby away without a word to her son or son-in-law. While his father is anything but accepting. He informs them both that their marriage and relationship is still wrong and that they are not allowed to act as a married gay couple in their home.
Instantly Brennen regrets returning to Russia and the plans they have to leave Dominica with Dmitri’s parents while they are on a much needed vacation. But, Dmitri is determined that they will come around and accept them both. It is Christmas after all and Christmas is a time for miracles.
I loved this book. It has so many surprises and feel good moments. I love how their relationship has grown so much over the series. I won’t go into details even though I really want to. Just know, For Me by Brina Brady is full of Christmas miracles and is a wonderful edition to the series.
