Blind Trust (The SNAP Agency #3) by Natalie Walters


Lyla Fox knows she has a reputation at the SNAP Agency for impulsivity, but when she receives a threatening letter from a man she helped put in prison, she can't stop herself from going all in to find out why he's coming after her. Unfortunately, she's going to need the help of the one person who questions her reckless choices more than anyone else.

Explosives and weapons specialist Nicolas Garcia agrees to help Lyla in order to keep her safe, but her recklessness continues to be a major concern, especially when her investigation into a conspiracy puts a target on her back. Dealing with bombs is dangerous. Working with Lyla is proving to be just as treacherous--to both the mission and his heart.

Natalie Walters closes out her SNAP Agency series with a bang with this nail-biting story of a deadly government conspiracy, an unlikely couple, and an ending that will leave you breathless.

It's the last book in this SNAP Agency series.  Boo.  I've really enjoyed this one so it's sad to see it coming to an end.  I know and like these characters.  They are familiar to me with the whole series feeling like community, family and trust.  

The ongoing series has been dancing around Lyla and Nicolas from the beginning so it was quite the build up getting here, to their story.  I feel like they had the slowest burn romance ever.  Like turtle pace.  Shying away and dancing around feelings of attraction and love which I get because they are coworkers.  But it was agonizing.  But, luckily, the crazy plot had me distracted so I wasn't completely wallowing in their lack of romantic action.

I am firmly team Nic.  Lyla's personality is so different from mine that it was hard to relate to her completely but I admire her determination and courage.  She definitely kept things lively.

I feel like there were a couple loose ends for me.  Things that were brought up but not fully resolved.  (Like if you are going to give a character a point of view in this story, then at least tell me what happened after everything went down.  To his family.  Which you brought into this story.)  This one wasn't my favorite of the series but I did still enjoy it.  The whole series overall is a good one.  I would recommend reading this series in order although I do believe each book could be read as a stand alone.  

I absolutely love reading romantic suspense and I'm glad for an author who is writing it so well.  I'm looking forward to what comes next!

Content:  moderate violence, death, peril.
