Amber Stone Agent Zero: For The Love of Blood by Amina Warsuma is a crime thriller with plenty of romance. When Amber Stone met Ray “Blood” Perkman, she was trying to become a model. However, falling in love with a man whose street name was Blood wasn’t conducive for a good modeling career or her heart. Blood changed her, even though she hoped to change Blood. Falling in love with him was easy, but living with the consequences wasn’t. Things moved quickly when she lost Blood to his vices. A career change as a secret agent brought her face to face with Blood and Amber had to make a decision she never anticipated. Stuck in an impasse, Amber would have to make a tough choice, or else she would fail miserably.

Short, fast-paced, and written wonderfully well, the story was easy to read and enjoy, perfect for readers who like fast fiction. Amina Warsuma packed in a lot while doing justice to her story. She added romance, suspense, action, emotions, and solid characters. The character names were funny in the beginning, but that was before I knew those were street names (and exactly what you expected from street thugs). Amber’s development was fantastic. Amber went from being a pushover to a strong woman who lived with her actions and thought with her mind over her heart. The dialogues were fun, the narrative was interesting, and the overall story was entertaining. I would suggest this novella to anyone who needs a light yet entertaining story to read during their daily commute.

The FBI recruits Amber to join the Agent Zero program to help capture Banderos and rescue agent Johnson, with help from Diego Cortez. A new life in Colombia filled with danger and intrigue awaits Amber.

Amber Stone Agent Zero is a thrilling, action-packed novel filled with intrigue and author Amina Warsuma keeps the reader interested throughout this fast-paced story. Amber and Blood are both fascinating characters who find themselves in tricky situations, many of which impact their life together and their future. The scenes and locations are well described in both the US and Colombia. I especially enjoyed the descriptive way in which Amina writes about the seventies fashion, décor, and lifestyle. Hopefully, there will be more Amber Stone novels in the future as her role takes her to new and exciting places. I would recommend this book to all adults, young and old.
