#BookReview :: Knowing Vera (Chance for Love #3) by Rachelle Ayala

Vera's dating Zach, casually, not committed, when she discovers her long-departed father is the killer of Zach's mother many years ago.
Meanwhile, Zach reevaluates his life after losing his leg in a tragic accident and realizes he's falling in love with Vera.
Can their timing be so wrong? Vera knows the relationship is doomed, but she cannot resist the tugging of her heart and Zach's panty-melting grin.

Caught in a web of family secrets and hidden agendas, Vera and Zach must depend on each other for survival. A dangerous killer is on the loose, and Vera must find the truth, wherever it leads, even if it destroys her chance for love forever.
Knowing Vera is a suspenseful, cross-cultural romance mixing an unsolved murder, adventure, and hot, steamy love scenes.

“Knowing Vera” is essentially the story of two people connected through series on incidents over the years. On one hand we have Vera Custodio, who was only a little girl when her father committed suicide after allegedly killing a woman name Lillian Spencer. It had been a traumatic event of her life – one that had taken away her voice for over a year and her ‘happily everafter’ forever.  On the other hand we have Zach Spencer, a bright athlete whose life is left broken after an accident. Once a ladies’ man and now cripple, Zach has his own share of issues to deal with. And then we go on to find that Lillian Spencer, the lady Vera’s dada allegedly killed, was Zach’s mother! With so much of their past weighing on their shoulder and this new discovery, will Zach and Vera ever find love and happiness with each other?

Rachelle Ayala-has-dun-it AGAIN! If you haven’t read any of her books yet, you have no idea what you are missing out on. And if you have read her books before, especially one from Chance for Love Series, and think that you know what to expect…. Then, well, think again!

Vera is a girl everyone would love to fall in love with. She is sweet and intelligent with a fragile side that makes you wanna take care of her in whatever possible way. We also find out that she is quite a strong girl too. Her experiences make her vary yet she is willing to go as far as it takes her to find the answers she is looking for. Zach on the other hand is not only an eye-candy; he has a heart to match his features. His experiences in life haven’t been all rosy either. When an accident leaves him crippled and takes away his dreams, he doesn’t break down. Instead he re-evaluates life and makes some new dream for him to chase. Bring together these two people and the result is sizzling chemistry! Their characters grow throughout the story and as readers we get to know them practically at a personal level. 

One thing that is very consistent about Rachelle Ayala’s novels is her amazing story-telling capability. It reflects in each of her novels as she takes us on a journey with her protagonists who slowly capture our hearts. The way she builds up the mystery is quite good and she manages to maintain the air of curiosity so well that you will not be able to take a guess until she is ready to let you take a guess. Another aspect of Rachelle’s writing is the amazing balance that the author maintains between mystery and romance. Not one aspect gets outshined by the other and that is maintained in this novel too.

If you wanna read a mystery story that curls your toes as well, then this is your book - well after Broken Build. Knowing Vera is a sizzling tale of love and intrigue. Go get your copy now!
