Review of Agent Zero by Janet Walden-West and GIVEAWAY!

When I heard that Janet Walden-West was launching a brand-new urban fantasy series, I couldn’t wait to get my hot little hands on it. I knew that Janet would bring her talent for scene-setting, characterization, and descriptive flair to the urban fantasy genre in a truly electric fashion. Let me tell you, Agent Zero knocked it out of the park!

Agent Zero by Janet Walden-West

He owns the spotlight, she lives in the shadows.VEE: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.

BRUCE: 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.

Welcome to Region Two.


Janet Walden-West kicks off an exciting new urban fantasy series with this fun, fast-paced adventure of monster hunting and romance set amidst the drama of a top-secret mission. Agent Zero satisfies by bringing the beloved tropes that define the urban fantasy genre while injecting it with fresh energy through new twists and unique, unforgettable characters. Both Bruce and Vee are dynamic, compelling leads with complex personalities and internal struggles. Their romance is at once banter-y and intense, filled with the emotional depth and crackling chemistry that makes their story a joy to get lost in from the first encounter to the final payoff. Add in steamy love scenes and a phenomenal cast of side characters with multi-dimensional stories of their own, and we have a winner. Can’t wait to see what happens next in Region Two!
