Broken Build Book Review

I read Broken Build by Rachelle Ayala, in exchange for review from Tomoson.

The book is available in paperback and kindle.

About the book: (paraphrased from Amazon)

Jennifer wants to let go of her past. She gets a job in Silicon Valley in a start-up company. Then, she gets involved in blackmail, murder, and broken code. The manager of the company, David starts to investigate Jennifer when a man, last seen with her, is found dead. Both parties must stop a killer while saving someone from their past.

My review:

This book brought challenges--to read--not because of the author--but because of technology. Once again, kindle for pc kept freezing and the kindle--the formatting was off. I copied the wrong format to the kindle. Definitely considering using Adobe Digital Editions to review books at first, before trying to read on my kindle or kindle app. Or using Cloud reader on Google. 

Other than that--on to the book:

The beginning was descriptive. Jen is being blackmailed by The muscle man. She changed her name and people still know of her past.  The blackmailer knows where she lives, even drops off notes to her house. Jen even used to date his brother, who died.   Jen is a build engineer, I think, working on a program as well.  Her purse with phone was stolen a few days before. The muscle man, who wants more from Jen, that what she is willing to give. She is helping him with coding. Jen gave him part of a company code to help with a college class. Jen could be fired for this, along with a few other things, if they pulled a background check. Then, something major occurs, which puts Jen in the middle of an investigation as a person of interest. Can't tell you now, but read the book. .99 on kindle. 

Rey, the muscle man, is still dealing with the death of his brother. He wants the code to have a better life, in addition to getting custody of his daughter. 

Then, you have David Jewell, the CEO of Jen's company. The company is working on a shopping program, but the coding is still broken. The software finished on time--will help the company go public. If the software fails, the company may face layoffs. 

I started reading the book this week and it was very good. Very intense. There is a crime, an investigation, and people, trying to keep their past, past.

  1. Thanks for your review! .epub works on Adobe Digital Edition but won't work on Kindle, but I'm glad you were able to read it though. The .mobi and PDF file works for Kindle. Glad you liked Broken Build.
