Keeping House (Truth or Dare, Book 1), by Lee Brazil
Misha Blake is rich, young and from a well-to-do to family of close-knit brothers who consider him spoiled. On their regular poker night, the brothers decide it’s time for their baby brother to grow up and instigate a little “game” of their own. Losing the hand, Misha was forced to play their version of Truth or Dare. Either enter into the family business or get a job and keep it for a full year without access to his hefty monthly allowance or his beloved Porshe. What did Misha decide? To find a job. The only trouble was that, as with all of us, finding one proved to be difficult. When a wealthy man advertised for not only a personal assistant but also a housekeeper/cook, Misha was determined to get hired.
I’m a huge fan of m/m pieces and enjoyed the combative nature of the brothers who initially seemed to be a bit arrogant but had the best interests of their wayward brother in their hearts. The passages where Misha tried to figure out about pots and pans and learned to cook were priceless and I could easily envision his angst. Donovan, the employer/love interest was engaging and sexy in his mannerisms. Where the piece lost some of its glow was in the fast paced aspect of the story. I wasn’t able to learn enough about our heroes and therefore unable to love them. I also thought the fact the two were a couple so quickly wasn’t as believable as it could have been. I believe Keeping House would have benefited from being a longer piece where the characters could grow along with the story. Still, I think Mr. Brazil’s writing style is fresh, well-written and engaging and I will read his works with pleasure again.
