Villa in the Sun is a Yassen/Alex story by BoldAsBrass.


When one of you is a (semi) retired assassin and the other a teenage secret agent attempting to navigate University life, then telling stories over the telephone may be the best way you have to keep in touch. Sometimes though, stories can take on a life of their own.

Recs and Reviews

A multi-chapter story within a story as Yassen and Alex keep in touch over the phone through a tale of a Russian bodyguard’s encounters with a young English man. This is so cleverly done and beautifully written; I could re-read it and re-read it (in fact, that’s exactly what I’ve done).[1]
