After reading three of Rachelle's books, I see the recurring theme of man and woman love each other but cannot fully trust one another which makes for exciting, edge of your seat reading. As stated in my Knowing Vera review, I love that the main characters of all three of her books in the Chance for Love series are intertwined. This story had so many twists and turns that it was hard to keep up and Rachelle did a great job of making you suspect EVERYONE as the bad guy. I was rooting for Jen the whole time and was relieved to find out she wasn't guilty of half the things she was accused of.

Having finished reading the entire Chance for Love series, I have one thing to say. I'm glad I'm not friends in real life with Jen, Vera and Maryanne! They are brave women that always encounter adventure that I'd be too scared to handle. Great writing, Rachelle!

I was given the opportunity to review this book and I was really excited to be able to read this book. I love being able to review books, because there are a lot of awesome books out there that I might not be to otherwise get the chance to read. And I've able to recently be able to check out some really good books in different Genres that I love.

With that being said I have to start by saying that Broken Build by far has become one of my favorites so far that I have been able to review. It has a little bit of everything in it from Suspense, Mystery, Drama, and a little bit of Romance mixed into it.

Right off from the start Rachelle Ayala grabs your attention and holds you until the end of it. Right from the get-go you can't help but feel that trouble just follows Jen Jones around. Since it seems as everyone from Jen's past seems to have something happen to them. And its obvious that Jen is hiding something and doesn't want anyone to figure out her secret. Especially her boss David Jewell.

The chemistry between Jen and David is right there from the beginning. Even David has a secret that he is hiding from everyone.

The thing that I liked the most about this book was how all of the character's lives intertwined with everybody else. Somehow they all had to do with either Jen or with David. I was rooting for Jen and David through the whole story and hoped that they would be able to figure out who was out to get them.

I would definitely recommend this story to all my friends and family and give it a 5 stars out of 5. And like I said before this story has a little bit of everything in it. I couldn't put it down once I started reading.

It was a lovely romantic book with a bit of Christian reference to it. Its a book that definitely keeps you on edge with its twists and turns and you won't want to put it down once you pick it up.

Jennifer Cruz has a past...a secret....some secrets maybe. They are revealed throughout the book and more and more strange things happen to her and the people around her. It all ends up tying together and are all related in some ways.

I don't want to give the book away...but I read this book in 2 nights. I was caught up in the crazy parts of the book...and then the romantic parts that keep you reading for more!

This book has a great easy to follow along plot, and is well written...even if you aren't technically savvy you can figure out what the book is talking about with thorough explanations throughout.

Once you pick up this book, I GUARANTEE you won't put it down!!! I will definitely be reading more books by Rachelle Ayala!!

This is the second book I've read by Rachelle Ayala and it certainly didn't disappoint. It was very different from the first book, which was on the religious side. Broken Build is full of suspense and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. Broken Build is about Jen Jones who is a software programmer, but her programs keep failing, or creating "broken builds". She has a rocky criminal past that she is desperately trying to keep quiet, but her ex-boyfriend's brother isn't making it easy. Jen Jones is an engineer with a new body, a new degree and new job. She also has a dark secret. Dave Jones is CEO and founder of the exciting new start up company that Jen has a job at and unbeknownst to him, a past connection to Jen. Jen is talented and Dave needs her to get the business going, but a hit and run accident triggers a whirlwind of events that not only endangers the builds but also their lives. During the twists, turns and endless confusion, of who is pulling the strings behind the scenes and why they would ever want to torture and hurt either of them. Never knowing who’s going to show up, no matter where she goes Jen lives in fear of what it going to happen next. Living with the guilt of her secret, feeling the weight of it on her shoulders when she allows the comfort of Dave’s arms to console her. People are getting killed, for what she has no clue, but knows she could be next.
