Russian mobster spanks his rent boy. Ouch!

Rent Boy Brennen wants to belong to his lover Dmitri Dubrovsky. The Russian mobster controls every inch of his life in and out of bed. Brennen works for Dmitri's escort service. His only desire is to please his lover. 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?

A steamy BDSM opposites attract!

This was a steamy BDSM medium angst romance.

A torrid affair between a a Russian mobster and a Rent boy? This one was absolutely hot, passionate and sexy.
It touches upon themes of culture and the prejudices faced by being out and proud.
Brennan was such a sweet and relatable character and I really felt for him.

James Talbot did an exceptional audio delivery on this one.

Great!

This was the first book I read by Brina Brady and I feel in love with her writing. I love that she was able to bring Brennan and Dimitri to life in the first book on Audible. Their story is so great. A must have for any Brina Brady fan. Wonderful !!

Held my attention

This is the first story I’ve listened to by this author. For it being the author’s first book I think it is a great start for the series. The characters are well developed. The story flows right along and kept me interested. I have to admit as a character I didn’t really like Brennen. Even though things have been bad for him he is just too juvenile in his behavior. It’s his behavior that is a big part of the story though. The relationship between Brennen and Dmitri is a real soap opera. I also kept wondering just what Mischa might do next. I think James Talbot overall did a good job with these characters. The only fault I could find what I felt Dmitri sounded a little too whiny for a mobster sometimes but I don’t know if that is the story or a narrator. I liked it enough I look forward to the next in the series. I was given a free copy from Audiobooks Unleashed and this is a voluntary review.

painful listening

it took forever to finish this book. I had to force myself to get through each chapter because of the narrator. I stopped listening 8 times and started another listen. since I do not like to leave books unfinished, I persevered. Narrators voice had a trembling quality which made the characters sound like nervous wrecks. (not to mention the false starts. throat clearing and mispronunciations, ) the book started out good and showed promise, but narration was so awful the characters came off as a big dysfunctional family. the characters seemed so immature for their ages. The punishments and tortures were very disciptive, yet the romance/sex/smex wasnt and felt rushed. ike the saying goes. a narrator can make or break a story. this was broken beyond repair. this may be a spoiler but I think the ending sucked..It did not due the book justice. I was going to give this author another chance but the more I think about it, I'm not. too many loose ends, poor character development.
not worth a credit or a buy.

It's alright.

I listened to Rent Me by Brina Brday, narrated by James Talbot. I think this story would have been better and I would have enjoyed it more, if it had been narrated by a different person. There were too many times where the narrator made a mistake, stopped mid sentence, then started the sentence over again. OR the same phrase was repeated two and three times. There were even times when the narrator had cleared his throat during recording and it was never edited out.

As I said, I liked Brennan and Dmitri well enough and the story seemed interesting. I just kept being pulled out of it with each issue that came up with the narrator.

Story a definite FIVE STAR must read.

I don't even know why it took me so long to get to this series, but I'm definitely binge reading it this weekend. The two MC's drove me crazy with their up and down crazy relationship, at the same time I could feel the love and devotion they had with one another. At times I wanted to smack Brennan upside the head for his childish selfish ways, and at times I wanted to feed him cocoa and cookies and tell him it'll be alright. Dimitri was patience personified, because I don't know if I'd have had the same with Brennan. I could feel his internal conflict with wanting to protect Brennan while at the same time having to put up a front for the sake of their safety. All in all FIVE HUGE STARS, and I can't wait to read the rest.

As for the narrator a definite TWO STAR . To me he sounded like the old man in the 1980's (yes I'm dating myself.. Lol) Pepperidge Farm cookies commercials. NOT the voice of a sexy 21 year old, and definitely NOT the voice of a hot sexy Russian mobster. It made listening to the story a bit tedious. Hopefully the rest of the series will make it to audiobook with a different narrator. May I suggest Dorian Bane, he'd make this series as hot as he does all the others he narrates.

Editing, please!

The story was okay, but the narrator was terrible. Bad sound editing made it worse. Far too many instances of the narrator stopping mid sentence after an error, then starting the sentence over. Very distracting.

From Russia with love

I couldn't stop listening once I started, I was desperate to know what would happen next. there was so much going on, at times it was so funny I was laughing along then there was the drama, do much drama. I loved it when the narrator did the Russian accent and liked that it clearly defined the characters.

Loved this story

Loved it.

If you like a BDSM style book you'll live this. Although I was in tears in a few places and I seriously wanted to take Brennam home and keep him safe.

Brennam was rescued by Dimitri and later fell in love with the Russian.

However life isn't smooth for either man.

The narration was nice and clear, but he had seriously good writing in my opinion. Well worth the read/listen.

Loved listening to the audiobook, the story was amazing to listening to, the story was well written and believable.

Branden had a hard time excepting Dimitri was married the heartache, loneliness, betrayal, confusion, love, passion and even twists throughout the story.
The narrator was clearly spoken and easy to understand.

4.5 stars A great narration

🎧 Narrated James Talbot. A first narration for me with this narrator. A great voiced audio with different characters. I loved the narrators choice for Brennen's voice although I wasnt sure about Dmitri's as its very differant.

Following the story of Brennen 21 yrs and Dmitri relationship going from escort boy to a owned Sub.
Dmitri was married to his wife while he was seeing Brennen an escort. Brennen wanting more from Dmitri but he was hard and firm with his rules. Brennen was a study lawyer which at times made Dmitri jealous.
Scenes playout with BDSM featured included along with other things happening. This is a story that tottally makes you feel wether it be for Brennen or Dmitri as situations arise. I'd previously read the book which I prefer but an audio can make a story come to life. The narrator does good job of doing that.
