Vera Custodio has never fallen in love, though she has strong feelings for her friend and sometimes lover, Zach Spencer. Long-forgotten memories resurface when Vera discovers Zach’s mother was the woman her father supposedly murdered many years ago.

Caught between a web of family secrets and a deranged adversary, Vera and Zach must depend on each other for survival. Love blossoms, but the truth explodes everything Vera knows about herself. Will she close her heart forever or risk it all for a shot at happily-ever-after?
Book 3 of The Chance For Love Series - Each book can be read standalone, but earlier plots will be revealed by reading later books.
I haven't read any of the other books in this series, but this did not affect the book at all. I very much liked the range of characters that Ayala put into this book, especially the range of backgrounds and the detailed histories of each. I really enjoyed reading about Vera's history and her family background and I felt this really gave the whole book a little something extra. I also loved Zach's background and storyline especially - he is so easy to like and a brilliantly written character.
The book is well written, easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable. It even surprises as there are many elements that would be difficult to predict - unlike so many other romances.
I would really recommend you reading this - I am off to grab the others in the series.
