Bad Attitude (B.A.D. Agency #1)
First of all,I gotta tell ya: No one,no one,has humour like Steele does.No one.He's sarcastic,witty,quirky,snappy and he kills with his comebacks.Kills?Gosh,the guy's ridiculously and amazingly creative when it comes to comebacks.His mind must be working 24/7,he ALWAYSALWAYSALWAYSALWAYS had a comeback.
"If I let you kiss me,will you call me Josh?"
"No,I'm a walking corpse.Can't you tell?"
"Tell me American.You have a father?"
I really enjoyed the story, the characters, the whole set-up. It definitely isn't as steamy as most of Kenyon's work, but I don't think that's any reason to criticize the book. The chemistry between the characters is definitely still there. In fact, it's even hotter between some of the secondary characters! Even the BAD (ha, bad pun) acronym is forgivable.
However, there were a couple of loose strings that I wish were tied...more
Sherrilyn Kenyon is talented like no other! Her writing style and characters and plots are so good that they are able to draw me into the story no matter what the genre might be!
As such, I absolutely loved BAD Attitude! Aside from the fact that there were about two plot twists I did not see coming, the characters of Steele and Syd were so enjoyable to read! I really believed the entire premise to the agency and the drama of th...more
There were just so many things that made me think "Why did this covert, awesome, recruits all the badasses from everywhere, do half the stuff before hand?" Why they needed a guy 2 years out of the game (which is a lot when yo...more
That said, I still liked it. I love Steele's sense of humor, and Syd...more
I'm figuring that because Kenyon is a big seller with the "hot loin" books and she came up with this new idea, the publisher let her write this book and they actually published it.
It is, IMHO, BAD! Kenyon does great with the greek gods and fantasy types of hot loin books but a semi-realistic spy book? No, it was terrible. The publisher must have gotten smart after the first book and force...more
First in the B.A.D. Agency series
The BAD Agency is a secret organization that hunts terrorists and other threats to society. BAD agent Sydney Westbrook must find the perfect sniper for a risky counter-terrorism mission. J.D. Steele, a military sniper who shot at his CO in a fit of rage, just happens to be perfect for the job. But Sydney and J.D. have never gotten along and this mission is sure to be a bumpy ride. I’m not into spy novels or movies. I’ll wat...more
The main characters Steele and Syd were great. I loved Steele from the start and never stopped. He was a man of honor who tried to do what was right. He's gruff, strong, and sarcastic, but he's also gentle, kind, and loving. Syd got on my nerves a teeny bit sometimes but I still enjoyed her character.
The character Jack I would have loved simply because he is rid...more
1. The story started off pretty slow. Honestly, I was quite ready to not like this book but after the third chapter or so, the story started to revved up. True to Kenyon's style of writing, once you're on board, it's hard not to sail through.
2. How can JD confused her father's voice with his sister's? He was so sure that it was his father's voice he heard on the other line even though the voice was...more
I noticed that she loves using the phrases "turnabout is fair play" or something lik...more
Even so, I really enjoyed the characters in the book, but was slightly put off by the ending. I have the next in the series (co-authored by diana love) so I hope to enjoy the next one more.
Done reading Bad Attitude. I like this book and the whole Series of B.A.D this is the type of book that I really want to read. Commandos and Security Agent, Bodyguards & etc. I like the story and of course the characters especially J.D. Steele.
I like Kenyon on how she wrote this book.
If you're a type of person who like secret agents, commandos and etc. action-romance thing then you should buy and read this one.
Sydney Westbrook is an agent who is determined to get the bad guy at any costs. J.D. Steele is a former Army sniper who ends up in jail for misconduct. The BAD agency springs him for a job and of course romance ens...more
