RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Under the Gun by Harper Bentley

Title: Under the Gun
Series: CEP #3
Author: Harper Bentley
Release Date: July 14, 2016
Citadel Executive Protection (CEP): New York City's top-rated security agency that hires and assigns only the best of the best for each case.

Psychologist Quinn McDonnell runs a practice on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, NY, specializing in adolescents.

Quinn's a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is kind of woman who doesn't take a lot of crap from anybody. When she starts receiving threats from a man she believes is a former patient's brother, she finds herself entwined in an insidious web of deceit and betrayal.

Seeking the help of CEP, she finds herself once again involved with the handsome and broody Gunner Murphy, a man she butted heads with in Unbreakable Hearts (CEP #2), a man with whom she's now engaged in a dance of steamy flirtation as neither wants to admit their true feelings for the other.

Gunner is a former chopper pilot for the Army, having flown in a special ops regiment called the Night Stalkers, who has deep-seeded issues he thought he'd dealt with.

The race is on as Gunner enters into a game of cat and mouse as he tries to uncover the dark secrets of a sick and twisted mind to help keep Quinn alive. Can he overcome his own fears as he rushes to beat the clock to save her?

USA Today Best Selling author Harper Bentley writes about hot alpha males who love hard. She's taught high school English for 24 years, and although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.

After traveling the nation in her younger years as a military brat, having lived in Alaska, Washington State and California, she now resides in Oklahoma with her teenage daughter, two dogs and one cat, happily writing stories that she hopes her readers will enjoy.

Sonja's Review

Ms. Bentley is one of my faves, so when the time came to decide if I wanted to read Under the Gun, there was no question in my mind that I did! I knew that I would love it and that it would be excellent and I was not wrong. It was just so wonderful and I enjoyed every minute of it! 

Quinn is absolutely awesome! She's strong, sassy, stubborn, and feisty. She's not afraid to challenge Gunner or try to put him in his place or tell him how things are going to go - granted, it doesn't always work, but it's amusing to watch. I just loved everything about Quinn from her stubbornness to how she was around Gunner - it was great! 

And Gunner, how could I not love him?! He's my kind of hero with all his alpha, protective, possessiveness that he has going on. He's sexy and playful and teasing and a little bit of a jerk sometimes, but he's a good guy. Gunner totally stole my heart and I have no doubts that he will do the same to you! 

Under the Gun was full of mystery, passion, humor, and a little heartache. It made me heart squeeze and made my eyes water at times, but it gave me a few good loud laughs too. Although I had one up on Ms. Bentley with the mystery, I will admit that she definitely pulled one over on me on the other end. It was utterly fantastic and I can't wait for more of the CEP series try to come or to get caught up on the first two books! 

Under the Gun can be read as a standalone, it's told from Gunner and Quinn's POV, and they do get their happily-ever-after!
