Enter the Janitor by Josh Vogt

Clean-freak college student Dani Hashelheim never imagined she'd discover her latent magical ability in, of all places, a bathroom. But when she ducks into the ladies' room at the library, she's put in the crossfire between an elderly janitor and a ravenous muck-monster that emerges from the sink. Dani's previously unknown power manifests in self-defense, and she floods and burns down the library-at the same time.
Enter Ben, the janitor, who works for the Cleaners, a supernatural sanitation company that keeps reality tidy and safe...and a company Dani now works for as well, whether she wants to or not. This puts a significant crimp in her dream to attend med school and become a doctor. Nor is Ben happy, since it's his duty to help Dani adapt to the job and learn to control her chaotic talent before it kills them both.
Dani barely has time to try on her new company uniform before she and Ben are hunted down by a cult that wants to cleanse all life from the planet, and believes her power provides the means to do so. While fighting to survive the cult's increasingly violent recruitment attempts, the pair must battle dust devils, navigate a maze of mystical sewers, face down trash golems-and scrub the occasional toilet.

The crusty old janitor who cleans out the supernatural scumbags gets suckered into mentoring the germaphobic new kid who is clueless about her newly acquired magic talents. The obsessive germaphobic pre med student finds herself in a new form of reality and learning with questionable coping skills. Probably a great book for some, but not for me, especially since I found the narrator's vocal performance grating to my

I picked this up because it seemed like a fun idea and a new wrinkle on urban fantasy. Unfortunately, the characters are fairly flat and the plot is based on the characters doing dumb stuff on purpose. The writing is fairly awkward. I didn't like that the female lead keeps getting captured and rescued. An alleged evil goddess spends much of a chapter weeping on the shoulder of the male lead. But the author crossed a line for me when he had the female lead standing naked (except for a trash bag over her head) while the supposed good guys had a long conversation and not one of them thought to give her his shirt. Unfortunately, I will not be finishing this book.
