Backlash by Rachel Dylan



CIA analyst Layla Karam is thrust into a dangerous DEA field operation against a cartel that puts a target on her back. Though Layla never wanted to be a field agent, Langley had other ideas. After one of her team members is murdered because of fallout from the op, Layla is left scrambling to find safety.

At the same time, the CIA opens up an internal investigation against her. Out of options, Layla turns to ex-boyfriend and private investigator Hunter McCoy for help finding out who might want to ruin her career.

Layla and Hunter soon discover a mole inside the DEA has sold out the team's identity to the cartel. She must clear her name with the Agency and protect herself and her teammates from cartel retaliation. With threats on all sides, Layla must put her trust in Hunter--the man who broke her heart--and hope they both come out of it alive.


Dylan certainly knows what she's doing with a series like this!
It's been such an exciting series so far and I'm loving it!
I love learning about the many different agencies that protects our country. I never knew there were so many!
I'm like another reader tho. I would have loved some more insight on the three friends ' friendship. I would have liked to have seen how they met ect.
I did love Layla and Hunter. I feel like I've l known them for a long time. Have you ever met someone and few like you've known them for a long time? That's the way I felt with these two characters.
I also loved the supporting characters like Izzy. I was so happy to see her back but my heart went out to her too.
I can honestly say that I loved the fast action from the beginning to end. Dylan even had a few surprises along the way with whodunit. Love those kinds of guessing games because it makes the book that much more fun! Dylan has a knack for keeping her readers like me eagerly turning the pages to see what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed this novei! I love good solid writing like this book seems to have so I'm giving it 5 stars!
Five stars for the wonderful characters and an awesome plot of course!
Here's a favorite quote from the book. Hunter tells Layla this and what he said couldn't be more tried than life itself! 
" I really do believe that God gave us a chance at second love. Not everyone gets a chance at love with the person who means the most to them in the world. So so true!
One more favorite is that God has a plan for each and every one of us. In all honesty I love this reminder because sometimes I forget to look outside the big box. I think we all do.
The author has done an excellent job of weaving faith filled reminders throughout the book from time to time. She reminds us that God always has our backs. Even if we do get mad at Him when things don't go our way. Or when certain things in life are out of our control. Just like Hunter and Layla. My two favorite characters. I will always think about them even after the book is finished.
I'm already looking forward to reading the next book in this series! She doesn't disappoint either!
I highly recommend! This is an excellent read!

  1. This review makes me want to read this book; my want tos are getting to be a book shelf instead of a stack. I never, ever wanted to think about a second chance at love because I loved so much in my first; but things happen... Thank God He allows us the strength to carry on and love again. Dylan sounds like such a good character; can't wait to meet him.
