Bad Attitude (B.A.D. Agency #1)
It’s been ages since I read the first three novellas in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s B.A.D. Agency series, almost eight years to be exact, a shocker when I looked it up. I enjoyed those stories, but I ended up putting them on the back burner in favor of reading her Dark-Hunter series instead. I decided it was finally time to give the B.A.D. agents a chance again, and with Bad Attitude, I had another positive reading experience overall. I seem to recall those first stories were a li ...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
J.D. Steele lost his bestfriend while they were on a failed/compromised mission. Filled with grief and anger at his CO a pot shot to the head of said CO gave him a new home behind bars for 25+.
Syd the vicous is a BAD agent with a few male issues of her own. After BAD offers Stelle a job because they need his sniper skills these two end up partners on the case. Stelle's scarcstic humor and Syd's vicousness make for an intresting coupling.
Was a good read. A story filled ...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
Keeps me on the edge and really really really love the twist. Hahaha. I really did not think it was the sister. Darn.
Looking forward to JOE ad TEE's something... <3
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
Where was Retter?? I feel deprived! My fav character in this series.
I love Cletus! GSD owner and lover here. Wish there had been a tad bit more of him. Gator was a laugh too.
I really enjoyed Steeles lines also -- to me none of what he said was offensive (whi ...more
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

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

Sydney and Steele should have been the male/female badass sniper team I was looking for but instead I got a reluctant hero and a somewhat messy, hotheaded heroine. I understand why Steele was reluctant to do what he was contracted for, but it's kind of annoying that he's like that from beginning to end even despite being shot at. As for Sydney, she ...more
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
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

That said, I still liked it. I love Steele's sense of humor, and Syd ...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
