I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

It takes a demon to catch a demon.

Got a dispute with another demon and killing them just won’t solve it? Leonie Hendricks gets results, no matter what the cost.

Even if her life-long internal battle with her non-human side is seriously taking its toll.

A new case throws Leonie back into the arms of the man who broke her heart. While she’d rather stab him and get on with her life, her professional principles demand that she hunt down her client’s fiendish assailant before innocent humans get caught in the crossfire.

But when things take a sinister turn, Leonie finds herself in a deadly fight not just for her heart, but for her very soul.

The stabbing, however, is still on the table. A girl’s got to have a Plan B.

***Please note: While this can be read as a standalone adventure, this story is best read AFTER the Nava Katz series as it builds on events in those books.

I was so pleased that we were going to be treated with a follow-up on the Nava Katz series to see what happens with Leonie and Dreo! In Leonie Hendricks: Demon P.I. we really see how much Leonie has to fight her goblin side. In the regular books of the series, that really isn’t addressed. Her human side is always clearly present and she doesn’t seem to have a problem with it.

After Dreo made this huge play for Leo, everyone is surprised to see that just a week or so later it is all over the news that he is engaged to an Italian girl. Everyone knows it is suspicious and Rho hires Leonie to go find out what is really going on.

I was happy with how fast Leo finds out what the problem is and gets it solved. The mystery of the who and why took Leonie and Dreo on paths that would test Leo’s control as well as their relationship. This book was a quick read, but it was full of exciting adventures, big AHA moments and of course, Leo and Dreo’s romance. I think this was a great follow-up to the ending of the series and was left completely satisfied that all my favorite characters were now living their HEA’s. The Nava Katz series was a fun one. It took a little to get into it, and I found the romantic relationships very frustrating, but I felt it all worked out in the end.

Sarah Puckett was a new narrator for me, and I think she did a really good job with the characters in this book. There is a lot of Italian and that accent sounded really good to me. I was definitely pleased with the narration of this book.

About Deborah Wilde

A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah writes urban fantasy to satisfy her love of smexy romances and tales of chicks who kick ass. This award-winning author is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way. “It takes a bad girl to fight evil. Go Wilde.”

Just released book 5 of my Unlikeable Demon Hunter books and it is with excitement, trepidation, and sadness that I bring it to a conclusion in book 6, which will hopefully be out in early 2019.
