I was going to mention Kevin Hearne and his Iron Druid Chronicles too. I just started reading the first book, and the first thing I thought was 'this reminds me so much of Dresden Files'.

Tad Williams, The Dirty Streets of Heaven... Reminds me of Simon Greens. Agents of light and darkness.
Only Tad has a couple of booty calls thrown in...but they are not porntastic, but more classic movie style fade to black then the. Guy runs off trying to get his. Jeans on and his car keys out at the same time...

My favorite homegrown urban fantasy author is Charles De Lint.
He has written over seventy books. The first I read was "Moon Heart". Then " Yarrow", followed by "Jack the Giant killer". Moon Heart when I read it as a kid was astounding. Completely gutted me and inspired me to learn Taekwondo.
The native american spirit books have a male protagonist, but many of De Lint's stories are female centric, or an ensemble. More scary parts then romantic. Anyways, a lot of people like his stuff.

I quite enjoyed "61 Nails" book 1 of the "Courts of the Feyre" by Mike Shevdon series which has a London setting

I don't know where I saw it mentioned and started to read but Steve McHugh's Hellequin series is quite nice and reminds me a lot of Harry.

I'd second the Hellequin novels. Not up to the level of Dresden, but they are fast, action packed reads with a different twist on world mythology, plus the author writes fast so the series is almost complete.
