Since you want your custom-made master pages (not the ordinary Left and
Right master pages) to be automatically applied, you cannot use the
option of setting up the files in the book to use Next Available Side.
Your only option in this case is to make your first two pages of a
chapter into a separate file, and use the standard-named master pages
in this file, but with the same layout as your custom-made ones.
The file with the rest of the chapter do not use the custom-made ones.
You then set up each file in the book to use Next Available Side.
