From the Author

Vera Custodio is possibly my most favorite character. I never planned on making her a heroine, but she grew on me. In Broken Build, she first appears as the sister of a dead man, and then as the flirt enticing Dave Jewell with her pancit malabon. From there, she became Maryanne Torres' best friend in Hidden Under Her Heart. She met Zach Spencer, a playboy triathlete, and succumbed to his charms, but under her terms.

Since she was a side character, she had several faults she had to grow out of to become a heroine. She wasn't very truthful, had trouble keeping her panties on, and dropped boyfriends like used nail extensions. But she was also caring, loyal, and a darn good cook. When Zach Spencer suffers a crippling injury, I knew Vera would be the perfect woman for him. But first, she has to overcome the mystery in her past and open her heart enough to trust. And that's the theme of Knowing Vera.

From the very start of this book, it hooked me. Vera has a great voice and I just loved the way she looks at things and her determination. Zach is totally swoon-worthy and a great hero who will capture your heart. Things are hot between these two, despite Vera's questions and hesitations. I felt so bad for Vera, since she's had a tough time of things and recent events make her life even harder. She can't fully give her heart to Zach until she knows the truth about her past and can lay to rest some family secrets.

Honestly, I didn't figure out the ultimate mystery behind the book until the author revealed it, though I had plenty of theories and questions. Exciting and suspenseful, I thought Vera's race for the truth was entertaining. I'll eagerly look forward to Rachelle's next book. Highly recommend this. Loved it!

Knowing Vera is one of the most beautifully heart pounding and delightfully suspenseful stories that I have had the absolute pleasure to savor and enjoy. I felt every word and emotion all the way to my very soul. Romantic suspense has always been my one of my absolute favorite genres, and this book set a new bar for what I expect from a brilliantly thought out and executed journey that inspires and arouses my curiosity. I never expected to find such a magnificent treasure within the pages of this book, and I loved every minute of this high speed mystery adventure.

Vera has lived through tragedy and heartbreak, but even that nightmare hasn’t prepared her for the unknown, hidden danger that begins to stalk her. She doesn’t pay it any attention until it begins to systematically rip her life apart. Just when she thinks she has a handle on things, her world is rocked by an explosion that rivals the start of any world war. Zach has been a part of her life for a short time, but during that time he has managed to steal her heart without her even realizing it. While she nurses him through a very dark time in his life, she discovers that his presence in her life has taken on a whole new meaning. This revelation causes her world to tilt, and she doesn’t know how to deal with it along with the new mystery that has overtaken her life. Will Vera’s finally listen to her heart and stop pushing Zach away, or will the mystery that has her tied up in knots permanently remove all distractions from her life?

Vera and Zack are a beautifully intriguing couple that I couldn’t get enough of! Watching Zach’s life change almost as drastically as Vera’s almost broke my heart, but he was determined to live a life filled with love and meaning.

Vera is indeed a character with baggage. She has undergone years of therapy after seeing her father jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. She's afraid to get close to anyone. And Zach lost his confidence when he lost part of his leg. He's on the road to recovery now that he has his prosthetic limb and his outlook on what he wants in life has changed.

I liked the author's development of these two main protagonists. While Vera wavered back and forth between leaving Zach and staying with Zach, ultimately they chose commitment. Rachelle Ayala really shows that love is not all about taking what we can get from someone, but is all about giving all that we can. That was the quality that struck me the most about Zach. Even when Vera rejected him, he was still there for her.

I don't mind books with romance in them, but I did find the romance scenes in this book to be more on the erotica side.

The mystery of the murder of Zach's mother was very intriguing and leads Vera to some startling revelations about her family. I like how the author upholds the value of family. There is a lot in this book to keep you guessing right to the end.

I gave this book 3 stars.

Thank you to the publisher who provided a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

This Chance for Love series, well, it just keeps getting better! So I ♥ed Dave in Broken Build, then loved Lucas, but Zach? While we don't see a lot of him in book 2, Hidden Under Her Heart, I knew, just knew he'd be my favorite kind of hero! Even if he was a bad boy previously. So, let me drool over him a little longer here! Okay, just one more, one more swooooney moment... The beach scene! Oh the beach scene ♥. To be Vera in that scene, pantyyy melting!

Alright, down to the review. Am I surprised Ms. Ayala spun yet another who-dunnit suspense that had me guessing 'till the very end? Nah. Not really. She has that great ability to create high suspense and weave in a good romance. Add some seriously special moments, a little message about life and how we're not all perfect, and you get a kick A double S romantic suspense.

And Vera. I totally loved that girl! I want to say she's my favorite out of the three books, but I can't because Jen was an equally favorite. BUT! If you haven't read the first two books, NO problem! They're easily standalone and each has its own story, even though the characters all interlink.

Throughout the novel, I rooted for Vera and Zach, hoping like hell they'd not only survive the twisted mess brought on by deceitful family secrets, including murder, and the havoc brought on by the villains, but pull through as a couple.

My heart rejoiced, and then it leapt in leaps and bounds by the way it ended! Totally ♥ ♥ ♥ this book! (and Zach! Shh. Don't tell Vera!)

And! I know there's more to come in this series, and I also know the next two stories are going to totally suck me in. Soooo can't wait! So hurry up, Ms. Ayala and gettem done 'cause I hate waiting!

Yours Truly,
Patience Not!
