Review: Under Suspicion and Under the Gun by Hannah Jayne

Book description:

She's the new head of the Underworld Detection Agency's strangest division. What a nightmare. . .

Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted. It's also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld. Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately. But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone's nightmare. And her investigation is testing her bravery--and Will's unexpected vulnerability--in ways neither could predict. Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike.

Book description:

When you’re near the top of the Underworld Detection Agency, the claws really come out…

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 inter-office 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…

Jenny's review:

These two books are from the series The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles,  featuring Sophie, a normal young woman who works at the UDA.  Normal being that she is human, while those around her are usually not. She has feelings for a fallen angel Alex, and also cannot stop thinking about her guardian, Will. In these two books Sophie is trying to solve the mystery of her clients that have gone missing. It started with her former boss at the UDA, who has disappeared and is feared dead. Sophie cannot help but do some amateur sleuthing, but is finding out that she is getting in way over her head.
These two books were a great set of urban fantasy. Full of action and mystery as the characters are trying to stay alive and figure out who is after them. You do not need to read the previous books in this series to understand and enjoy what is happening in these books as they explain most of the back story. The stories are a quick, enjoyable read.
