Publisher: Loose Id LLC (January 16, 2012)
Amazon Kindle: Sins of the Father [Angel and the Assassin 3]

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.

Cop Out by KC Burn

As soon as I started this book, I was regretting that it had taken me so long to do it. Cop Out is a very nice “gay for you” story, but it was not “pushed”, it didn’t feel fake: Kurt may be straight, or at least he has never had any interest in guys before from a sexual point of view, but then he meets Davy, and it’s love, a love that doesn’t distinct between gender.

Starting from the assumption you shouldn’t speak bad of the dead, I shouldn’t say that I really disliked Ben; he is Kurt’s detective partner and Davy’s domestic partner, but despite him being the connection between them, Kurt and Davy never met before. Actually, Kurt didn’t even know Ben was gay and that he was in a committed relationship with Davy. We should probably think twice before disliking Ben, he had probably his reason to be so deep in the closet, and after all, Davy was with him for more than 10 years, and he was devastated by Ben’s death. So, yes, I can tell there was good in Ben, but how he forced Davy to stay in the closet, how he basically severed all their friendships, could have caused Davy’s own death if not for Kurt.

At Ben’s funeral, Kurt realizes not only that Davy is Ben’s lover, but also that he really needs help. Kurt becomes Davy’s guardian angel, and from the proximity, and from the chance of knowing Davy’s in a very intimate way, Kurt starts to realize his feelings for Davy are deeper than friendship. I liked that they didn’t fall into each other arms too soon and too fast, it was really natural how Kurt’s feelings evolved and matured. There was not really an epiphany, more a moment when Kurt admitted what was already a reality. I really loved the reaction of Kurt’s catholic family, that was really the meaning of being family.

Of the two, maybe it’s Davy that was the one doing more mistakes, he jumps to the conclusion before giving Kurt the time to explain himself; on the other hand, Davy is also able to admit his own mistakes and to search help to understand them, so in the end, he redeems himself and becomes the right match for the very nice character that is Kurt.
