Title: Agent Zero (Region Two #1)
Author: Janet Walden-West
Star: 2 1\2
The story starts off with an attack on Bruce and while there are some humors moments and lots of action. With supernatural attacking humans. As the story progresses Bruce turns into a love interest for Vee who is a lethal cryptid who goal is to keep people safe and lives for her job.
The story really doesn't stand out from any other supernatural story and at times struggles with keeping a basic story line. Between Sexy and action scenes there isn't much substance to Agent Zero.
I thought I had started a series maybe three books in but nope this is book 1 and as a reader I found myself lost and confused as to the purpose of the story.
The positive is the story has a strong woman protecting a weaker man. Bruce is unlikable character who whines more than he cooks.
Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of Janet Walden-West book Agent Zero.
He owns the spotlight, she lives in the shadows.
My only purpose? Keep lethal cryptids in check, and our Company existence secret.
Sometimes a girl needs a night of karaoke and tequila though. Instead, after a vicious new cryptid species crashes the party, I end up saving and carting home a way arrogant, way hot chef. With Bruce Kantor now a temporary roommate it seems like the perfect time to indulge my forbidden civilian fascination—especially the friends-with-benefits part. But the feelings he ignites threaten my oath and mission.
Damn right I’m the bad boy of the culinary world.
I live for the limelight, and the legions of #BruceTheBastard fans love my temper as much as my food. After stomping out of one high-profile gig, all I’m looking for are directions to my next. What I get is a giant Komodo Dragon-wannabe, and Vee Ramirez, the most infuriatingly irresistible woman to ever hit my radar.
Even if we survive the relentless monster on my trail, our future is toast unless I can convince Vee there’s more to life than the Company.
