Summary

Attention: This audiobook contains explicit sexual content between consenting assassins and not so innocent professors. There are depictions of male chastity, breath play, watersports, humiliation, and torture by '80s hair bands with ginger sprinkles on top.

Phew! Now, that that's out of the way, Hi. I'm Mr. No, your friendly communications agent for The Assassins' Guild, a.k.a. T.A.G.

I've been authorized by the head honcho himself, Mr. H, to release approved records from the agent files.

Agent Code Name Mr. W was recovering from a near death debacle by way of an easy assignment in a small mountain town. Red flags sprang up immediately around the seemingly innocent English professor. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery Jacob Peters presented, Mr. W made plans to do what he did best, watch , wait, and then capture and interrogate.

But even the best laid plans can go awry...

Find out what brought Mr. W to his knees in this first release from the archives of The Assassins' Guild.

Mixed feelings

Some reviews practically write themselves. I listen to the book, and my feelings are clear. The words flow onto the page as I share my feelings with other listeners. I tell them why they have to buy this book or, occasionally, why they might want to pass on a story. I always put a lot of thought into my reviews. They’re never done lightly. I know how authors depend on reviews to garner future readers.

All that being said, when I encounter a book like T.A.G. You’re Seen and I have so many mixed emotions, it’s a struggle for me to put them into words. There are things I liked about the book, things that were a little off putting, and at least one moment where I went, ‘you’re kidding, right?’

Starting with the good stuff. I love when the lead in the book is of a different ethnic background than mine. I don’t have enough exposure to other cultures, and books give me that chance to delve into things that aren’t well known to me. Yoshi is a character who is far beyond my experience. (That being said, he’s in his twenties, so the cover image didn’t quite work for me.) Beyond his ethnicity is the fact he’s an assassin. He botched his one hundredth kill and so he’s been knocked down a few rungs in the Assassins Guild. But his latest job is his chance at redemption. Kill a college professor. What could be simpler?

Well, we’ll start with the physical attraction. The professor is handsome. Attractive. Sexy. Yoshi wants some for himself, and since he can’t have any, his cock takes a fair amount of abuse. Self-gratification and cock cages abound. Another reviewer pointed out that Yoshi is obsessed with his genitalia. I don’t normally read other reviews, but I wanted to see if I was the only one who didn’t love this book. If I was the only one who struggled. Seems I’m in the minority.

I’ll take a step back and mention the warnings. They are all accurate and if you’re squeamish, this might not be the book for you. But I’m firm in my belief of not kink shaming. If watersports are your thing, this book is for you. Breath play? Have at it as long as it’s safe. But I’m also big about not putting oneself in a precarious position. For the sake of the story, Yoshi did something I considered, frankly, that pushed credulity. Did it all work out in the end? Yes. Was I thinking ‘what the hell?’. Yes.

All that being said, I love kink and this book had plenty of it. It has also set up the next book nicely and I suspect I’ll grab it if I can. I’m glad Yoshi got his happy ending, and I’m waiting to see if his bestie Connor (Connie) ends up the same way.

Gomez Pugh narrated this story and I adore him. He narrated Kaje Harper’s Rebuilding series and he’s quickly become one of my faves. He did a great job with this story and elevated my impression of it. Hopefully he’ll be helming the next one as well.

Hot asassins!

Hot, kinky story about the assassins of the T.A.G. organization. The first part of the book is from the POV of a young assassin, who is a kinky submissive boy. The second part of the book is from the dominant older assassins POV.
I liked the story a lot. It was fresh, suprising and very kinky at times! If a thought of watersports makes you gag, this book is not for you.
Narrator was good,characters have their unique voices. I haven't listened him before, but definitely going to listen him again! I really want to listen the next book in the series.

Unique & Kinky with excellent narration!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4 stars
🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3 (contains elements that were a little “too kinky” for me.
🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 4.5

A unique, world and story, with second chances, age gap, and steamy connections!

This is a very unique world A.G. had created and I like the cold heated assassins angle with more beneath the surface. I like Yoshi! He’s a uniquely dynamic character, with skills to kill and love to give. I like the second chances elements of this story and loved the twists and turns, even with the elements of betrayal. I felt this was a great series opener and included a great introduction to the family and world. I’d say it was very kinky but each to their own kink, and who’s to say it’s “too kinky” 😉 I will say that I found it pushing my boundaries a little too much but you can’t deny the fire between Yoshi and Jacob.

I did feel the book just ended and wasn’t quite as “wrapped up” as I usually like but I think it works into the uniqueness of this book and I feel A.G. has a lot more up their sleeves in this world, this series, and these unique assassins!!

This was my first time listening to Gomez Pugh and I think they did a fantastic job! Great use of tone of voice, easy to listen to and great and unique dialects matched accordingly to each character. His Russian accent was also excellent! I’ll definitely listen to him again!

Thanks for reading!

Terrific characters and a stunning plot!

Terrific characters, stunning plot and wonderful narration really makes this a must enjoy story.  This is a new narrator to me and i liked how he really brought the story and characters to life.  

The story-line was surprising, engaging, complicated, original and the characters are wonderful.   I was really captivated as i started listening to this story and i had so many surprises in store for me.  

There is kink, steam, love, anger, trust, betrayal, friendship, honor, and so much more!  The characters are really well developed, have incredible backstories and bring you as the reader into their pain and happiness.  

This is the  first book in The Assassins' Guild series and i am looking forward to book on on audio.

Different

And I loved it. The story kept me engaged the characters were interesting. The BDSM elements were good even though not quite what I enjoy reading. The scenes were well written and didn’t detract from the story at all.

I loved the narration. Each character had their own voice and the accents were spot on. I can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out on audio.

Clever & Beautifully Written, Pugh is Spectacular!

Clever, smart, and wickedly dirty, A.G. Carothers scores a perfect 10 with T.A.G. You’re Seen! The first book in their The Assassins’ Guild series, Carothers lays down a thrilling, fast-moving adventure. Wonderfully complex characters navigate twists and turns, all while a heart-touching tale unfolds. After all, assassins live, love, and laugh too.

This audio version of T.A.G. You’re Seen is performed by Gomez Pugh, and I don’t have to tell his fans how perfect he is for this kind of novel. What an opportunity for this talented narrator to show off his impressive skill with accents... and his ability to croon those sexy Russian words of love! Horoshiy malchik, o da!

Plus Mr. Pugh does an amazing job representing the wide variety of personalities in the cast. From the playfulness of the young guys to the gruffer, more somber, older men, Pugh’s performance is brilliant. This talented narrator has A.G. Carothers’ humor down pat, and I can’t wait to hear him perform the next episode in this series.

Broken into two parts, T.A.G. You’re Seen begins with the story of a young assassin on (what should be) a routine job. Something doesn’t seem right, and when he takes a deeper look at his target, he’s in for a big surprise. Well that’s the story for the second half of the novel, and to say any more here would spoil the whole thing! The reveal is clever and a lot of fun.

This is the second novel I’ve read by A.G. Carothers, and what captures me most about their writing are the connections between the characters. This is a stunning D/s relationship, and the emotions that emerge during the power exchanges are moving and truly beautiful.

Carothers also explores the bonds between the wide mixture of men who make up the family of T.A.G. From father and son, to brothers, to comrades in arms, I’m looking forward to learning more about this eclectic blend of personalities in the next episode in The Assassins’ Guild series.

There’s a wonderful, rich history between these characters, and I love the snarky banter as they navigate their way through the story. It’s not a comedy, but A.G. Carothers weaves touches of lightheartedness and humor throughout. There are also gritty stories of past assassinations, descriptions of torture techniques, and details of these guys’ lives that will tug at your heartstrings. A perfect blend of thriller, erotica, and a touching hurt/comfort tale, T.A.G. You’re Seen is everything I could want in a dark romance novel.

4.5 stars and it's a must read/listen to.

STORY: 4.5 STARS
T.A.G You're Seen is an imaginative story with amazing characters. Just when you think you have something figured out, you find out, not everything is what it seems. More than one plot twist exists and that's what makes it interesting. There is plenty of steam, but that's not the only thing. The story weaves an intricate plot that keeps the reader captivated as they listen or read. In addition, a great cast of characters enhances the entire experience.

NARRATION: 5 STARS
Not all narrators are created equal. Gomez Pugh brought each of the characters to life, but more than that, he was able to do the various accents. Not always easy and more than one has failed. I could easily picture the characters in my head with these voices. He made them fit, unique, and has a voice that will hypnotize you. Very well done!

OVERALL: 4.5 STARS
I loved this story when I initially read it last year, and that has not changed one iota. If anything, I love it even more. Great story, plot, characters, and a fabulous narration. Overall, I'm giving this one 4.5 stars and I recommend everyone one-click this book today! You will enjoy it regardless if you read or listen to it.

Hot hot hot!!

I loved this audiobook. It’s an age gap with bdsm romance. Warning: there is a water sports scene but it’s easy to skip if you don’t want to hear it.
I am super excited for the next book to come out to find out what happens to Yoshi’s brother Conner and his love interest Norse god looking chef Oz.

Amazing narration, intriguing plotline and romance

This audiobook was not what I expected based on the title and blurb, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Yoshi has been part of The Assassins' Guild for his entire life. Mr. H, the man who killed Yoshi's parents, refused to kill Yoshi as a baby and instead adopted him into the Guild and raised him as his own son. Though it may seem strange, Yoshi loves Mr. H and holds no resentment towards him about his parents' deaths. I had a hard time connecting to Yoshi in the beginning of the book because I couldn't figure out how seriously to take him as a character. Once I learned a bit more about him and got to listen to his stories about growing up with assassins, I felt more invested in his story. The unbelievable outcome of his 100th assignment was hilarious to me.

The book picks up at the beginning of Yoshi's Assignment #101. His mission is to kill a college professor in a small mountain town. What seems like an easy assignment gets derailed by Yoshi's suspicions that the professor is not who he appears to be. Once Yoshi started setting up surveillance and trailing the professor, the story lost me for a bit. I didn't fully understand why Yoshi was so intent on kidnapping the professor instead of just completing his mission. I think I missed a lot of foreshadowing while I was confused, so Dmitry's big reveal was wasted on me. I wish I had more background on Dmitry before his reappearance so that I could have been more emotionally invested in their reunion. Instead, their first sexual encounter felt a lot like insta-love because I thought these two had just met and were already deeply emotionally connected to each other. Thankfully, it didn't take much longer to get some context and everything started to make sense again.

Speaking of Dmitry, I felt like his character development happened in a strange order. I first found out about this guy faking his death and refusing to consider a relationship with Yoshi because they have an age gap. Without the context that happened much later in the story, his actions came across in a weird way and I didn't like him very much. Sure, it's a good thing that he didn't have sex with a 16 year old, but faking your death and fleeing the country is not an appropriate response! Once I did get some of Dmitry's backstory, his actions were more relatable, though I am tired of reading books where the older man thinks his younger partner deserves someone his own age, who's less jaded, etc. etc.

In sum, while this book took me on a long, winding journey, I did enjoy the story in the end. The side characters (Connor, Enrique, Alexei, Nigel) were amazing and I really hope they get their own stories. Though I would definitely classify this as a romance, it was fluffier than I expected for a book about assassins and BDSM relationships. There really isn't much on-page violence or intense sex at all.

In terms of the narrator, I was very impressed with the different characters and accents he was able to do. His Russian accent was particularly sexy, and the way he narrated the sex scenes was amazing. I thought he did an incredible job bringing these people to life, and I'm looking forward to reading more books that he has narrated.

expected pwp and got so much more

I wasn't sure exactly what to expect going in. the warning in the beginning had my attention some of my darker hard to find kink in books so I was instantly interested. There is lots of steamy sex scenes and it does take till twords the end of the book for everything to really fall together but I enjoyed every second and I can't wait for the next book :)

Amazing!

Reading this book was incredible but listening to it was simply amazing. Each character is unique and full of life, the narrator brings them each to life and their accents are just what I thought they would be. The story is definitely a little different but in the best possible way. Hope the next one is narrated as well!

I liked the story and loved the audio performance!

T.A.G. You're Seen is my first book by A.G. Carothers and the first audiobook I've listened to by Gomez Pugh. I really loved his voice and all of the accents he used in this story were fantastic.

This book was a bit out of my comfort zone but I'm not sorry I listened to it. Here's where I admit my naivete about what watersports are in regards to this book. Google BDSM watersports if you want to know more. While I personally find the idea of this kind of icky, it worked in this story and to each his own…

The first paragraph of the synopsis warns what the book is about. However, it was written in such a lighthearted manner I was a bit taken aback while listening find that one of the main characters is a sadist. Now, having said that, Gomez Pugh's voice is reason enough to listen to this book. 😊 But the story is good, too, even if portions made me a bit uncomfortable.

There were lots of great feels in this story and my eyes leaked more than once. When an audiobook brings me to tears it's a sure sign that the author has written the emotional connection between the characters in just the right way and that the performer also was able to convey what the character(s) is really feeling.

I'm looking forward to reading or listening to the next book in this series.
