Kael Saunders, MI6 specialist operative and leather Daddy, has been living with Angel Button, his sub, for two years in a loving D/s relationship. Angel has been waiting for the time when he too can join MI6, knowing that his sniper skills make him a valuable asset to the organization. Kael loves to kill, it gives him an adrenalin rush, but Angel is certain his Daddy only eliminates those who pose a threat to national security, which is what Angel wants to do. Naive and idealistic, Angel wants to make the world a better place.
Angel’s beliefs are sorely tested a few days later, leaving him unsure if he wants to be an MI6 agent after all. When Kael is given an assignment in Cornwall, he takes Angel with him so they can have a weekend away. Angel finds out about the mission and the target and is left wondering if his Daddy is really the hero Angel thinks he is, placing their relationship in jeopardy.
It’s been a while since we spent time with Kael and Angel, in fact it was so long that I went back to read the first three in the series. After reading all four of them virtually in one continuous run I think Reckoning stands out as my favourite.
Kael and Angel had a difficult and peculiar start to their relationship and we are now two years on from when they met and things are still very different and oddly peculiar. They live quite a strict D/s relationship, there is a significant age gap, Kael kills for a living though his work for MI6 and Angel is as different from his ‘daddy’ as chalk is to cheese – but they work!
There is a lot to contend with in this latest book. Kael is left reeling with the discovery of his father and it seems every way he turns the man’s popularity is growing and the world seems to be conspiring to make this happen. With that in mind even Angel has a hand in helping the Russian who raped Kael’s mother along and Kael is left frustrated and angry.
I liked seeing Angel grow up a bit this time round. He was still besotted with Kael but not blindly and he began to question some of the aspects of their lives. Kael handles this badly finally proving to himself, his psychiatrist and the reader that he isn’t perfect and thus causing him even more problems.
I’ve grow quite fond of Conran it seems and enjoyed seeing his brother get what was due to him. The chief was another one who deserved what came his way for putting Angel in the predicament he found himself. The resolution at the end of the book made me think this was the last in the series but it was certainly left open enough for the series to continue.
I enjoyed catching up with Kael and Angel – if you haven’t read this series you need to start at the beginning for it to make sense.
