Assassin 3: Sins of the Father by Fyn Alexander

Title : Sins of the Father                Word Count :77,949

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : MI6 assassin, Kael Saunders, is a larger than life, dominant master who finds himself becoming a Daddy to nineteen-year-old Angel Button. Over the last year and a half Kael and Angel have settled into a loving Dom/sub relationship. But no matter how comfortable the highly intelligent and ruthless assassin and his sweet, eager, loving boy become with each other, Kael is still the boss and Angel wants him to remain so, whether in the dungeon, the bedroom, or the kitchen. Naturally submissive, Angel has learned how to be a good Daddy’s boy and a good slave, but his childlike willfulness still makes itself known now and again.

When Angel is kidnapped by an enemy of Kael’s, he’ll stop at nothing to save his boy, but his boy may have to take what he’s learned and help him.

My Review : Kael and Angel are back again, only this time the mood is a little different.  Kael has to deal with  a recalcitrant young man when he doesn’t get his own way. Angel wants to take a year off before going to university and Kael believes he knows what’s best for his boy. Kael’s boss Conran has suggested that Angel go into the service seeing as how his training  is so precise after being trained by Kael who is the best. Kael wants something totally different and better for his boy. He does not condone Angel becoming an assassin. Kael would much rather Angel go to Cambridge University and get a history degree,  but Angel feels like he can’t measure up to Kael’s esteem.

 In a pique of anger, Angel runs away from his ‘Daddy’ rather than stay and be disciplined. He gets himself in serious trouble when he gets drunk and drugged in a bar. Daddy Kael is just in time to stop Angel from being raped by a man  in his fifties. Angel is very sick when he comes home and Kael takes care of him, but he is not happy about it. Angel is still being rebellious and he feels adrift on a sea of unsurity and helplessness. Kael not knowing what else to do , locks him in the cage. 

Kael needs to realign his expectations for Angel and that pisses him off. Angel has always been a great sub, but at the end of the day he is still just a teenager with all these adult expectations foisted upon him. Kael learns that he can’t always control everything and Conran actually imparts some useful advice. Kael rewards Conran with a flogging and a good hard fuck with a dildo. Angel apologizes to his daddy and Kael takes him to the dungeon and uses the cane on him while he is hanging upside down  with a hood over his head. Kael knows that above all else , Angel hates the hood and that makes it a true punishment especially when he sticks a piece of gingeroot in his most sensitive place. I found this to be truly archaic,  even for Kael.

 Life goes back to normal for them , but when old ghosts and secrets from Kael’s past come back to haunt him, his life is in uproar. For the first time ever, Kael gets so angry at Angel and slaps him for disclosing some parts of Kael’s past that has the potential to hurt Kael’s mom. There is one thing that is clear throughout this series, there is only two people that Kael loves above all else and that’s his mom and Angel. Angel is ashamed for disappointing his daddy, and Kael is devastated that he actually hurt Angel physically outside of their consensual meetings in the dungeon. 

This incident was truly an eye opener for Kael when his mother pointed out how scared Angel is in his presence sometimes.  Kael realized for the first time that his rigidity is very off putting and causes a barrier in his relationship with Angel. He starts to understand that loosening the reins could go a far way in curbing some of Angel’s rebellious ways. Kael questions his methods and sees that he is probably stifling Angel’s  youthful exuberance in his quest for training the perfect ‘boy’. Kael apologized and treated Angel like the precious boy that he is and gives some leeway for spontaneity.  This results in a hot lovemaking session where Angel rocks his world with a ride of his life. The sexual chemistry is out of this world between these two, the sex is better than ever.

Angel schooled his daddy in how to live in the moment and just have fun, even when in his dungeon. Lots of love, discipline and a bit of leniency brought out the best in Angel. He made Kael proud by getting into Cambridge University  and Kael allows Angel the freedom to take a year off to train as an agent. Kael has really mellowed out under Angel’s tutelage in how to be more human. Kael has become a better daddy and he now proudly embraces his feelings for his boy and shows his love unrestrainedly. I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. Another great addition to the series,  I am never bored or dissapointed to hear about these two. Kudos to Fyn Alexander for keeping it fresh, interesting and sexy all the time.

Assassin 2: Be Brave by Fyn Alexander

Title : Be Brave               Word Count :76,857

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : MI6 assassin Kael Saunders was supposed to kill Angel Button after he witnessed a kill. Not only did Kael refuse to hurt Angel, but he took him home and fell in love with him. Living together now in a loving D/s relationship, Angel wants to follow in his daddy’s footsteps while Kael is determined to keep his boy out of the dangerous world of international assassins.

During an assignment Kael finds a little girl who is caught up in human trafficking and determines to rescue her. When he is taken prisoner Angel sets out to find his beloved Daddy and bring him home.

My Review : The angel and his assassin are back again and hotter than ever. Angel is now in school and having very productive days. He strives to make his ‘daddy’ proud by being obedient and submissive. Typical 18 yr old , he gets into trouble every now and then and this leads to a flogging which is not very pleasurable for him , but he knows that his daddy has his best interests at heart. Kael has to remind him every now and then not to talk about their relationship to his school friends , because they are not mature enough to grasp the full concept of their D/s lifestyle.  Angel in all his naiveté possess a certain level of maturity that gains the love and respect of his protective ‘daddy’.

 It is clear to see that although sex is a big component in their relationship,  Kael truly loves Angel and he takes care of him like no other.  ‘Daddy’ Kael is there to guide Angel into a progressive future where he will finish college and university and go on to be whatever he wants to become. Kael gives Angel a chance at life that he wouldn’t have gotten had he stayed with his selfish self -serving mother.

Throughout this book we are able to see a gentler, more caring human side to Kael rather than the trained assassin that is so ingrained in him. Kael takes fewer missions now that Angel has become a part of his life.

It is on one of these missions to extract a pedophile where he sees a 9 yr old sex slave desperately in need of his help. He idly promises to get her out, but when he goes back home  he can’t sleep for thinking of her. He goes back in, not as an assassin but as a human being who made a promise to a little girl. The extraction doesn’t go as planned and he is captured and tortured by the vicious animals running the sex slave ring filled with children.

Angel becomes really agitated when Kael doesn’t come back from his mission on time . He seeks out Kael’s boss Conran and pleads with him to find his ‘daddy’.  ‘Daddy’ has trained Angel well and so he ends up in  France with an operative on the hunt to bring Daddy safely home.

Angel kills a few men and does some unspeakable things to get Kael out . Kael is so proud that his ‘boy’ was so brave. He feels honored to have the love and affection of his Angel. They are both introspective when they get home and they wrap themselves in each other. Daddy sets things in motion so that Angel will be well taken care of if ever  he gets in trouble again which he undoubtedly will given his line of work. I really enjoyed this storyline even more so than the first book. There are some parts of the BDSM lifestyle that I just can’t understand like the mummification process, enemas among others that doesn’t sit well with me , but to each his own. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Angel and the Assassin by Fyn Alexander

Title : Angel and the Assassin        Word Count :88,823

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Kael Saunders loves to dominate handsome, masculine men like himself. Being in charge is his way of life whether it be in his work with the Secret Intelligence service, his personal life, or in the dungeon. The last thing he expects when he is out on a hit is to fall in love with Angel, a young man desperate for the love and guidance of a Daddy. Yet Angel also has a passion for being spanked and restrained. Two very different men find love in a world of skilled assassins, Bosnian terrorists, and dungeon play.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and content, male/male sexual practices.

My Review : Kael is a very hard , ruthless man at first glance.  Well he would have to be in order to be an assassin for the the government.  He takes care of business in the blink of an eye. He is cold, dominant,  very chiseled, big and sexy with an air of danger.

Angel is a sweet young twink who lives with his mother and his rich abusive stepfather. He is getting ready to flee the coop after his housekeeper  informs him that his mother has run off with her lover. Angel knows there is no way he can stay in the same house with his stepfather who hates him. Angel goes into the kitchen to get a drink after he is done packing; that is when he noticed the shadow, right before Kael sticks his scalpel through his step father’s skull.

When Kael realizes that there is a witness  to his crime, he tracks Angel to the bathroom.  Kael likes what he sees, a tight ass and long legs and Angel’s overall beauty is just what Kael likes. He sees right away that Angel is submissive and he likes how well Angel obeys him. He immediately orders Angel to his knees to service him with a blowjob. Angel is quite adept at it and Kael can’t seem to get enough of it. Kael takes Angel back to the UK with him. He doesn’t have the time for a ‘boy’ , not in his line of work and he knows that he should definitely take care of collateral damage, but there is just something about Angel.

There is a naiveté and an almost childlike quality to Angel’s personality that can be off putting for some, but this actually drew me in . I really liked that about Angel, the juxtaposition between his silliness and Kael’s worldliness makes their relationship work beautifully. Despite the fact that Angel is submissive,  his yearning for a ‘daddy’  who loves him, causes him to test Kael’s patience. It is hard for Kael to assimilate Angel in his orderly life, because Angel being the 18yr old that he is, can be  messy at times. 

It’s quite obvious that Kael’s life is inundated with everything BDSM. He is a full time master who expects to be  obeyed at all times and in everything. He expects Angel to always address him as ‘Sir’. What Angel wants is for Kael to truly be his ‘daddy’, someone who can keep him safe, take care of him,make all decisions and love him unconditionally.  Angel wants to be the best slave for his ‘daddy’ and he tries to put his master’s needs before his own. 

Their relationship is totally focused on the BDSM element , rather than intimacy.  Their sex life is all about lots of pain, orgasm denial, rimming seat , hoods , floggers, cages, forceps and all other torture devices that you can think of. These are all part and parcel of their everyday lives. I didn’t really like this so much, but there is something interesting about this pairing that would make me go back and read the second book in this series.

When Angel overhears Kael telling his friend that Angel is just a temporary amusement,  he withdraws within himself. Kael misses Angel’s affectionate nature and his willfullness. He actually is a little dissapointed with Angel’s obedience. Angel decides to leave Kael and move on to some place where he will be wanted. He is kidnapped by enemies of Kael. Kael didn’t truly appreciate what he had until it was too late. Finally,  he was able to acknowledge to himself how much he truly loved Angel. He moved heaven and earth to get back his angel,  killing a few people along the way. Angel found his ‘daddy’ in Kael. I give this my ratings of 3 – give it a try.  It just might be for you.
