Own Me by Brina Brady



Russian mobster Dmitri Dubrovsky weds former rent boy Brennen Brady.

Two husbands, deeply in love and lust, continue to doubt each other’s commitment and believe the worst. Dmitri’s possessiveness collides with Brennen’s jealousy and insecurity.

Brennen desires to fully submit and satisfy his husband’s every need, if only Dmitri would let him.

Everything is upended for the steamy couple when Dmitri’s ex-lover reveals a dangerous plot within the powerful Russian family’s organization. A series of events is set in motion that forces the pair to examine the depth of their devotion.

Dmitri’s secrets and lies, an effort to protect Brennen; lead to misunderstandings and conflicts. Through it all, the couple’s lust remains strong as they have blisteringly hot kinky sex at every opportunity.

Two husbands, still deeply in love and lust. Will that be enough when the family’s enemies bring the fight to their door?


This is the second part of the “Rent Me” series. I started reading this book and then realised I needed to read the first part to appreciate the dynamics and the plot. I am glad that I did… Wow…  The jealousy and the insecurity between Bren and Dmitri feel so real in this story. I honestly wanted to go and talk to them in a motherly way to help them. That is how much I was caught up in the story of these two. Dmitri and Bren are not only lovable but also charismatic. Let us not forget Viktor, who still loves Dmitri…ohh..he is so manipulative! The dynamics between them is very gripping. There are layers and layers of depth in the story, and I felt compelled to digest each line slowly,  because the more I understood the guys, the better I appreciated the” Rent Me” series.

The D/S part in the story is refreshingly different, and certainly very complex (please read the first story). I couldn’t help but love Bren who still seeks reassurance and love…That part is so powerful as you will see in the way Dmitri responds to his husband. There are other characters in the story which made me hope Brina Brady will continue to expand on the “Rent Me” series so that I can get to know the other characters more intimately within their own stories.

There is a lot of drama, passion and heightened emotions in this story…and my stars, the sizzling sex scenes are sensuous, and emotional . I really hope Dmitri and Bren will find their happy end , otherwise Brina will hear me crying my eyes out all the way from Australia. 5 stars
