TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Their lives are about to be upended...December 24, 2020TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Wow! If you are looking for an edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense that reads more like a thriller have I got the story for you! The newest novel in Rachel Dylan's exciting Capital Intrigue series is an intense thrill-a-minute ride of danger, intrigue, romance, and betrayal. I thought I really liked End Game but I loved Backlash!
There were so many twists and turns and surprises I could hardly keep up! But I enjoyed every single minute of it! The guessing, second guessing, the smugness when I was proven right, and the 'I didn't see THAT coming' moments as well. And there were definitely a few of those moments!
One of my favorite things about Backlash were the bits and pieces of her own experience that Rachel Dylan added to the second book in her Capital Intrigue series. As I read the author's note at the end it made the story just that much more real to me.
So, if you are looking for a story that will keep you up late into the night anxiously flipping the pages to find out what happens next you really need to read Rachel Dylan's newest Capital Intrigue book. Trust me, Backlash is a doozy!

FayeAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5High StakesNovember 7, 2020FayeAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5CIA Analyst Layla Karam never planned to be a field agent, but she is thrust into what is supposed to be an open and shut field mission with the DEA only for the mission to fall apart, making Layla a target of a drug cartel and an internal investigation.
A fast-paced, suspenseful read, Layla feels trapped with nowhere to turn, she finds herself reconnecting with a former flame, Hunter McCoy who happens to be an independent contractor for the DEA. This was a quick read for me, it keep me on the edge of my seat, with so much unknown and twists that kept me guessing. I loved how this book's plot unfolded with tension that builds throughout.
Layla is determined to not let them steamroll over her, I admired her strong faith, and he unwillingness to compromise what was important to her. There was great character interaction throughout, as she and Hunter slowly dissolve the distrust between them.
Overall, this was a page turning thriller, with high stakes and heart-pounding suspense. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I think that readers will get more out of Izzy's story if the book are read in order. Fantastic characters, and plot that kept me guessing till the end!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
ConnieKentuckyAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Exciting Romantic SuspenseNovember 4, 2020ConnieKentuckyAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Author Rachel Dylan has become synonymous with action and suspense, and once again, she offers readers a thrilling story filled with unexpected twists and turns, unknown assailants, and the opportunity to witness the revival of a romantic relationship. CIA analyst Layla Karam finds herself the target of a powerful cartel and she asks a private investigator who is also her ex-boyfriend to help her. It isn't just Layla who is as risk...her teammates may also become victims of these dangerous people!
There are several strong characters in this book but Layla and Hunter McCoy take center stage in Backlash. Reminders of their past relationship are part of this fascinating story and I enjoyed watching them join forces to find a mole in the DEA. Dylan also includes a strong faith element and, when Hunter talks about the danger that her Layla's job offers, she replies, "There's danger in every part of life. I have to rely on God's protection whether I'm running a field op or driving to the grocery store. It's all in His hands." Yes, Layla has the faith that Hunter once had. Will their working together help him find the beliefs that he's lost along the way?
If you're longing for adventure and you're yearning for sweet romance with a second chance at love, you'll find them in this second book of the Capital Intrigue series. "Intriguing" is the perfect description for Backlash!

Pamela M.Memphis, TNAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Explosive New Novel From Rachel DylanOctober 26, 2020Pamela M.Memphis, TNAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Rachel Dylan's latest novel Backlash literally explodes into nonstop action from the very beginning. Danger lurks just around every corner for CIA analyst Layla Karam and her team as well as for those close to her. Everything points to a cartel bent on revenge against the team members who participated in a DEA field operation against them and as a member of that team Layla has become one of their targets. To complicate matters, she learns that she is under an investigation by the CIA and needs to prove her innocence as she and her team work against time to solve the case before someone else dies.
Backlash is another of those keep-you-up-at-night page turners that was so hard to put down. Explosive action paired with multiple twists and turns kept me on edge as I anticipated what might happen next. Characters were well defined and it was fun getting to know them in the midst of such high pressure situations. I loved how Layla and her friends always had each other's backs and the honest relationships within their group. Struggles related to their faith (or lack of) were transparent and I was encouraged to see a natural progression of spiritual growth. A second chance romance added a nice touch to the narrative.
Backlash is a welcome addition to my keeper shelf. I would highly recommend it to fans of Christian suspense.
