Under the Gun by Hannah Jayne
Quick thinking and loyalty have taken human Sophie Lawson a long way in the UDA – along with a healthy dose of magic immunity. But when her old boss Pete Sampson asks for help after a mysterious two year disappearance, she’s determined to find out what high placed demon has put two ruthless werewolf killers on his tail. Of course, sucking up to her icy vampire department head and negotiating a treacherous interoffice demon battle are the kind of workplace politics that could easily get a “breather” way worse than reprimanded. And sexy fallen angel Alex is doing whatever it takes to heat up Sophie’s professional cool and raise feelings she’s done her best to bury. Too bad their investigation is about to uncover the Agency’s darkest secrets…and powerful entities happy to sign one inquisitive human’s pink slip in blood.
Sophie is in over her head again when her old boss shows up asking for help. He’s werewolf with hunters after him. But right when he arrives in town, viscous murders begin popping up – apparently by a werewolf. Meanwhile, her guardian Will takes off for England, leaving her with Alex, their relationship even more mixed up than before. Unfortunately, Sophie has deeper feelings for Alex that seem more like infatuation than anything. I’m team Will, mostly because I’ve never been on board with Alex’s motives and checkered (not-so-distant past).
Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed the latest installment in this urban fantasy series. Fast-paced and full of mystery, adventure, humor, and romance – Under the Gun is a quick but riveting read. A dark, fascinating world of vampires, werewolves, demons and other creatures and quirky, unforgettable characters make this a fun series that’s easy to love.
