    Wow I didn't have very high expectations for this book to begin with but picked it up off as it worked for a reading challenge I am participating in Unfortunately from page one I was disappointed Lethal Action starts out with an extremely unrealistic opening scene and just continues in that vein Dylan's writing style felt amateurish to me and was riddled with many typos and grammatical errors that continually pulled me out of the story I can understand a typo here or there that an editor missed but the large amount of typos in this one made me wonder if it had ever been proofread While the plot itself seemed mostly sound various scenarios throughout the story felt very unrealistic and contrived There were also a few legal issues that I don't feel were represented accurately The romance felt sudden and the amount of attraction between the main characters annoyed me although that is entirely a personal preference The characters particularly Gabe felt shallow and I spent time annoyed at them instead of rooting for them Gabe was pushy with Hope constantly hovering and seemed pretty idiotic for a special agent His backstory also fell completely flat In one particular scene Hope finishes telling him about her own tragic past then he proceeds to tell her about himself the main traumatic event in his past being his dog dying Really? Sure that may have been rough but compared to what Hope had been through that was a day at the beach It felt very shallow and not very considerate He also plays Superman a few times impossibly showing up at just the right moment to rescue Hope Not very realistic Overall this was not a book I enjoyed nor would I recommend it I wouldn't have even finished it had it been any longer

    Lethal Action was an intense and exciting novel I liked both main characters right from the start so it was easy to get caught up in their story Danger lurks around every corner for Hope making it very hard for Gabe to keep her safe and helping to create a fast paced storyBoth Hope and Gabe have been very career driven individuals and have had some personal hurts to overcome in the past It was fun to watch as romance blossomed even in the tense situations that they were in I thought that the relationship angle and the doubts and potential problems they voiced were very realisticThe author did a good job of creating dangerous situations for Hope to end up in and uite an interesting reason that she was being targeted that is only fully revealed at the end of the book Lethal Action also had a gentle thread of faith flowing through the story as Hope began to reacuaint herself with God I enjoyed this thrilling storyI received a complimentary copy of Lethal Action from the author in exchange for an honest reviewYou can read this review on the Suspense Sisters review page

    This is the third Rachel Dylan book that I’ve read and though I really liked her latest “Deadly Proof” this one was very similar to the other that I had read I personally like a little diversity but if you like just an easy read legal thriller this would be a great book for youThe spiritual thread was in there but I thought it was a little weak Gabe was the strong man of faith and it was mentioned a few times Just didn’t stand out as super strongOverall it was a clean read There was falling in love and a couple of kisses but nothing beyond that

    Title Lethal Action Danger in the Deep South #1Author Rachel DylanPages 224Year 2015Publisher Create Space IndependentMy rating 5 out of 5 starsRachel Dylan is a new author to me I saw her novella when perusing an online bookstore and saw too that she has written a few Love Inspired Suspense novels On top of being a lawyer she writes novels whose central character is a lawyer and a strong headed oneAttorney Hope Finch worked hard to get where she is as an attorney with a top law firm in New York and hopes to make partner within a few years Hope had a very rough upbringing that she used to not only help her work through the tough rigors of academia and work but also she built a wall around her heart for protection The wall was due to an ex boyfriend who betrayed her trust and therefore Hope decided she would be married to her job so she keeps other people out of her life Of course that was before she met Gabe The way she meets him doesn’t exactly instill the number one trait she looks for in a person and that is trustWhen Hope travels to a small town for a case Hope figures her work long hours have finally paid off However that all goes south when people start coming after her to do her physical harm in order to find out what she knows about a computer chip in her possession or is it?With tense moments some well placed humorous scenes Rachel keep readers such as myself entertained all the way till the end of the book The twists and turns in the plot kept me guessing as to who the powerful antagonists were and how Gabe was going to keep Hope alive Hope doesn’t rely on anyone but herself in all areas of her life and her facing danger head on makes protecting her rather daunting The next installment is titled Devoted Defender with a third and final book to be added to the series in the near future So watch for Rachel’s novels and then enjoy the well crafted high suspense tales within the covers of her books

    Great suspense novel A pretty uick read Lots of death defying action as attorney Hope Finch finds herself being the target of multiple attempts on her life Someone wants information only problem is that she doesn’t know what the bad guys are after I enjoyed the fast paced action and definitely recommend this

    I very rarely say this but the number one reason I picked up this book was the cover This is actually my first book by Rachel Dylan but I very much enjoyed it and look forward to reading by herShe caught my attention just a few pages in with an initial shock and kept it until the very end I really enjoyed the legal theme to the book I haven't read very many books written from a lawyer's viewpoint in the Inspirational or Christian genre and especially liked knowing that Rachel is a lawyer herself It made the story believable at least from the office and courtroom aspectsI really liked Gabe and how persistent he was on watching out for Hope But there were a few aspects of his character that were a little hard for me to believe I won't go into details and spoil the book for anyone thoughHope is one of the determined characters I've read about in a while and I loved her tenacity I especially loved how she did whatever she wanted to in spite of what Gabe said or did I really related with Hope throughout the story because I am a city girl through and through I have never been to NYC but think it would be awesome to live close enough to work to walk everydayI really enjoyed the organized crime FBI courtroom parts of this story They made for an intriguing storyline And the romance between Gabe and Hope was a great addition to the story without adding any filth I loved how clean this story was In my opinion the romance moved fast but I know Dylan had a limited number of pages and it moved slower than a mainstream story would haveI can't wait to read from Dylan

    Lethal Action by Rachel Dylan is a legal thriller Hope is an attorney in a New York firm that is working a case that sends her to small town in Georgia Gabe is an FBI agent convinced that something sinister is happening in his hometown of Maxwell GA Hope and Dylan end up working together to try and find out who is after Hope and who is behind the criminal activity going on in his hometown There is plenty of action and you start to wonder who you can trust I really liked Gabe Hope was a good strong character but bordered on stupid with one of her decisions I am hoping this becomes a series and Caleb the chief of police gets his own story You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex violence language and drugalcohol use in books
