Reviewing newly released Master Cleary's Boys by Brina Brady
Desperate to escape the clutches of an increasingly sadistic and abusive Dom, Kevin and Jack seize their opportunity to escape and runaway to Galway. They shave their heads and do their best to avoid being detected while searching for a new Dom who is prepared to take them on as package deal. Their running leads them to Cleary's Pub - a bar full of leather-clad Doms and subs, owned and run by Master Cleary...
Master Cameron Cleary was in need of a new sub - it had been far too long since he'd had a boy in his life. Each night as he ran his pub filled with leather-clad Doms, accompanied by their Subs, he became more aware of how solitary his life had become. That is, until two young cousins turned up one night looking for work, a place to stay, and more intriguingly a Dom who would take them both. Something about their recently shaved heads and skittish demeanor stirred his interest and protective nature. But did he want two subs, and was he prepared to deal with whatever trouble these boys were hiding?
My Review: I received this book from Signal Boost Promotions to go along with the Release Blitz posted earlier today. Although this is number two in the series it was easy to read as a stand alone. I wasn't sure at first about Kevin and Jack's relationship and how it would work for Master Cleary to have both of them as they are so different. Luckily Brina gave me a story that made it work for all three men, two whom I really felt sorry for in the beginning. I really enjoyed how they interacted within their own spheres of emotions and how Brina never once faulted on keep each man's reactions true to that sphere. I think the only problem I had with the whole story was that it seems to be set in an Ireland that isn't there any longer, but maybe it was written before the equality and marriage act for gays was a reality. I decided that overall it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story so let myself imagine it was set in the late 1900s or early 2000 and not present day Ireland.
