I lie to survive.

Have since I was sixteen and my world fell into chaos. But I found a way to endure, or rather it found me. Now I’m a prisoner of my own doing, hiding behind a false mask so no one sees the truth. Not even the man I want but can’t have—Deck. But I messed up and the lies are spilling over, out of control.

Deck is unrelenting and will settle for nothi

When I read some of Nashoda Rose’s Tear Asunder books, I was curious about Deck and Georgie and their relationship. I was excited to get their book. Let me throw this out here... Georgie was nothing like I expected her to be. The twists and turns this author took us on were crazy. I mean, I didn’t know what was going to happen from chapter to chapter. What is she hiding? What's going on? With each revelation made I was just blown away.

I was excited to start this one after seeing Deck in Tear Asunder, then throw in a brother’s best friend book and I was anxiously awaiting this one. I can honestly say I was blown away, with every page I turned the book just kept getting better and better.

Georgie’s perfect life pretty much fell apart when she was sixteen.

Deck was so dark and dangerous and intriguing!

This story went in a direction I wasn't expecting at all. But I LOVED it! It sucked me in from the get-go and I absolutely cannot wait for the rest of the books in the series!

I was totally sucked in and could have easily consumed this in one sitting (RL got in the way). This was my first book by Nashoda Rose and I can tell you now, it sure as hell won’t be my last. This girl is now a fan!!

This story was about Georgie and Deck who have a long history together. Deck was Georgie’s older brother's best friend and JTF2 army buddy. Both of them were drawn to each other from the onset but age, time and circumstance kept Georgie off limits to Deck

WoW!! I mean seriously WOW!! Perfect Chaos was bloody good. I practically read it in one sitting. Hubby knew I was feeling a little under the weather and told me he’d get our little one to school the next day so I could sleep in. I’m not the greatest sleeperinerer, so it generally means that he’s giving me free time to read. I don’t sleep in too well because once my eyes are open, my first thought is…what book am I reading?

Georgia was broken at the age of sixteen, she has some serious demons that follow her around, causing her to live her life full of bullshit and fantasy. The only one constant is Deck, he was there the day she first broke, but disappeared when she shattered and now he's back in her life with no chance of getting rid of hi

"You're my rainbow. The brilliant colors of you make me whole. Without your colors, I'm just a man living in the dark."

I've always found Deck an intriguing character and was looking forward to finally learning about this dark and mysterious man.


Perfect Chaos has a promising start, I felt invested in the story and was anxious to discover the secrets Georgie was hiding. But it started to lose me around 40%. One of my main issues is one of Georgie's revelations,(view spoiler)

Holy crap...what did I just read?
I have been asking myself over the last couple of days why I haven't read this series sooner. No idea, something always came in between. I tell you what though. This author? WICKED talent. Nashoda Rose's Perfect Chaos reminds me a bit of the time when Kristen Ashley was still new to me, only with a lot more suspense.

This story packs a one-two punch right at the beginning. Georgie is 16 when she receives a

Georgie was sweet, innocent girl growing up but her world was shattered after her brother’s death when she was sixteen. Losing her brother (Conner) made her emotionally damaged, she's broken down, lost in her own misery turning into something she would never thought of becoming- reckless, drinking, partying and flirting around trying to hide her never ending pain, A PERFECT CHAOS

Georgie was just sixteen when Deck delivered the news that her brother, Conner was killed in action. In that moment Georgie was lost to the darkness. When Deck arrives back in her life ten years later she still harbors the feelings for him that she felt all those years ago, but a promise to her brother has kept Deck from giving into his own desires.


Deck promised to protect her and to keep his hands to himself. But Georgie is making both those promises hard to keep. As Deck continues to resc

Nashoda Rose can write some pretty wonderful stuff. Her Tear Asunder Series is amazing and Perfect Chaos (Unyeilding #1) is a spinoff of that series. Though you can read this book as a standalone I’m going to suggest reading Tear Asunder Series first. Within that series you meet Deck and Georgie and get a sense of who they are. By the end of Overwhelmed by You, you know there is something between them and you can’t help but want more.

Ever since I read about the infamous badass Deck in the Tear Asunder series, I knew I'd eat up his story. He's a brooding hunk of man, ex Special Forces, now heading up Unyielding Riot. His group are undercover men who not always do the lawful, ethical things in life. They find the filth, take it out of the world but he professes he's not a good man.

Wow!!! Tear Asunder's spin-off was incredible!!!

It was intense and adventurous as hell.
Full with many lies, many secrets and much sexual frustration hunging in the air...

Yeah, the thing between Deck and Georgie was very obvious from the other books and it was so friggin' interesting to finally dive into that book...
Now i understand much better many things about those two... even though while i was reading their story i was confused as hell...

Gripping, compeling, sexy, dark and twisted.
And absolutely thrilling.

I wanted to read this book since the first time i sensed the sexual tension between Deck and Georgie in Tear Asunder series. And i was right. They share a kind of chemistry that is unique.

And not only that but their story is also filled with lies, secrets, contradictions, veil organizations and gloriously interesting characters.

A spin off from the Tear Asunder series, the Unyielding series will follow Deck and his team on an exciting mission.

In Perfect Chaos, we have Georgie and Deck. Georgie is the little sister of Deck's best friend who was killed in combat. Deck is ex-military and feels like he owes it to Connor to look out for Georgie, but never to take if further even though he wants to and the sexual chemistry is obvious to everyone.

Georgie is hiding something, Deck knows this and vows to help her

Deck promised Connor not only to keep Georgie safe but also to keep his hands off her. And Deck agreed with him. His life is too dangerous to get Georgie involved. So he tried to keep his distance.

But Decks disappearance after Connors death had disastrous consequences for Georgie. Consequences that forced Georgie to lie and to pretend to be someone else just to keep her loved o
