But I have to say the book was all over the place, characters shallow/annoying, story did NOT accurately portray a healthy D/s relationship and there was no hot sex scenes. If the writer didn't have decent writing skills, this would be one Hot Mess.
- a young kid that is lost trying to find his identity meets up with a "Dom" that completely manipulates him.
- if I read the word "Reverend" one more time I was going to scream.
- a messed up "best friend"
- a messed up twin sister
- an alcoholic mother
- a "Black" Dom
- a hateful brother
- a jealous ex-lover
- a jealous ex-wife
- the hero is young
- the hero is jobless
- the hero is penniless
- the hero is homeless
- the hero is struggling with his sexual identity
- the hero is a pot smoking kid
- the hero lies repeatedly
- the hero steals
- the hero is one big pity party of dialog
The above list is enough drama for 4 books, but it was way too much for one book. I hated how the author kept referring to Julian as "black". It made me wonder was this a book about a Dom that happened to be black or a book about a Black man that happened to be a Dom. It became too much. And the sanctimonious thinly veiled hatred for Christians could have been yet another book on it's own. The best I can say is this book was schizophrenic. Too many messed up personalities, too much meaningless drama, and nowhere near a good portrayal of D/s relationships.
I would have been okay with one or maybe two of the story lines above, but having so many, there was no opportunity to provide enough depth to capture a reader.
If you love books where an immature lost kid, gets manipulated by a "black" Dom, where you can read every single thought that pops into his head, where instead of character development you like busy rhetoric of a dysfunctional Christian family, and oh if you really don't like mature straight forward Dom's and hate good D/s scenes, then this book is the one for you!
However, there is something I don’t understand in the way Brina described his young MC. At the beginning of Bend Over’s blurb, she said that Shane is submissive. At the end of the same blurb, she said that he is rebellious. I’m not telling that subs are never going to rebel, but they are supposed to carry within themselves a deep need to surrender to a strong alpha. That’s the reason why they try hard to submit every time they are asked to do something by their dom. Therefore they can’t be called "rebellious". Submissiveness is not a role that you assume; this is the way you are inside your mind and your heart. Maybe this is my vision of submission that is too idealistic or absolute, but for me, a sub who is called “rebellious” is not a sub.
But Brina taught to troubled teenagers, I think. So she certainly knows a bit about rebellious teens. Maybe she depicted her youths based on these teens she met.
I found this story interesting. However, I have one reservation:
Early in the novel, Julien Callier, the dom, used tricks so Shane, the sub, had no other choice than working for him as a nude dancer at his Dancin Bare bar. (spoiler removed)
Those who read Rent Me and loved it will surely love Bend Over too. The theme is the same. The relationship between the dominant and his submissive are quite similar. And if you find that there wasn’t resolution of some points in their relationships at the end of these books, that’s because there will be sequels to the two novels. So if you wish, it will be possible for you to follow her characters in their next adventure.

It was some untalked about topics. And Shane is really messed up. But it's all for the good if it ends well.Read more
I am a fan of the series already and this is only the first book.Read more
1) I like that the Dom was a strong educated black man who was humble enough to admit it that he was wrong.Read more
