True Shot is a romance and suspense/thriller with some dark themes. Certain elements of the plot (what Sam’s boss is trying to do to her) and her boss himself are a bit on the florid and overly eevil side. It’s clever, but feels over the top. I’m sorry I’m being vague, but since Lamb strings that revelation out a bit I feel I shouldn’t give it away in the review.
Sam and Mac make a nice pairing. In particular I love the way Mac gets a little too snarky when he gets scared. It isn’t shown as him having unlikely composure in the face of adversity–it’s something he does to cope with being afraid. He felt like more of a point-of-view character than Sam, which is unusual; it was easier to relate to him than to Sam the super-spy.
There’s some nice action and definite suspense (particularly early on as Sam and Mac try to elude their pursuers). There’s danger and some sexually dark material. The relationship is fun, and there’s some very nice sex. Overall it’s an enjoyable book with good characters.
