***I was about to crack open book 3 and realized I had no idea where we left off...therefore, gonna do a re-skim-read of this bad boy before diving into book three...which I am only reading because I want to know what happens to Connor in this WTF series.


Original Review:

So, straight up?

It's 7:15am here and I haven't slept since 9:30am yesterday.
Because insomnia. So I am feeling tired, bitchy, and fucking bitter about it. My point?

One week. One Fairytale. The rule is simple,
“Baby, if you liked me, we’d have a problem. But make no mistake, you do like this. You can’t control it, so accept what this is.”



But he should have known, hell he does know better, to spend more than a night with him puts a big target on London's back...but that doesn't stop him from taking the week they were getting.

A book with an exceptional and movie-worthy plot.

Two total opposites.





An average girl. Beautiful, compassionate, innocent, quiet, caring and carefree. Science is her passion.

A look of a businessman and a hint of a British accent. Agile like a sleek panther. Trained to be emotionless. A machine. No attachments and no feelings. Always calm, always in co

"You'll never be able to leave me, London."- Kai

Perfect Ruin is the second book in the splendidly constructed, action packed, high suspense Unyielding Series. Although you can read Perfect Ruin as a stand alone, it is best to read it's predecessor Perfect Chaos first. However, don't let that hold you back from meeting one of the most dynamic heroes I have ever met and his name is KAI!

I've been waiting for Kai's book for a long, long time. Ever since he was first introduced as a somewhat shady secondary character in Torn from You, I knew I wanted his story.

I'd snap any chance to read a "Nashoda" book but when I'd seen that Kai finally gets his story in Perfect Ruin, I was all over it. Kai, the ellusive knife-weilding assasin within Vault was always a bit of a mystery. One thing we knew though- the man had an insane draw to girl named London.

4.5 “Always” STARS

Okay, I know I'm not alone when I say that I've been wanting Kai's book from our first glimpse of him in Torn from You. He's been this dark, scary mystery and while I didn't always liked what he did...



I really wanted to know him and his reasons for who he was. This is Kai's story, and London's.

Like Kai, London's been this mystery character that we've heard a lot about in the other books. And we even saw some dark and sad times when she was Raven (who she became as a captive)

I think they are no words to explain how much I love Nashoda Rose's books! Every time she writes something, every time I dive in one of her books she does it again and again. Perfect ruin was the fifth book I read from her and I won't let that woman down! She is an auto-buy author for me ever since I read Torn from you! She got me hooked since day 1! I'm a huge fan. I haven't read her PNR series at the moment but I know if there's one author other than Ella Frank that I wou

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books



"I'll always look out for you, braveheart."


I usually have an intro ready when I finish a book. This one has my thoughts in a jumble and I don't know where to start. So many things happen in this story and I don't want to give away too much so I'll try to break it down to the necessary.


"Loving you is like finding the light. I can't ever lose that again, baby. I won't."

Straight up…I was nervous getting started on this one. Perfect Ruin was a dark and gritty read that I knew I had to be in the right mindset for. I knew the players and what they were all about…or so I thought. See, Kai’s a bit of a dark horse. Cool, calm and collected on the outside, but you never really know what he’s thinking or could predict how he’ll act. It’s always best to be on your guard around him especially if he has either his knife or piano wire in e

Kai grew up in an environment that required discipline and detachment, making him ruthless and heartless. Being otherwise suggested weakness which was something he couldn’t afford to have.

London Westbrook was a student with a brilliant future. Being the daughter of a scientist, she was bound to follow his footsteps. But sometimes brilliance came with a price not worth paying for

I have been dying for Kai's story since we met him in Torn from You and then we got more of him in Perfect Chaos. He was a mystery the lethal assassin with his knives after reading Perfect Ruin I know him inside out and now I have a NEW book boyfriend I LOVE Kai. He is a cold hearted killer who EVERYONE fears until London gets under his skin and he begins to feel not just for her but for the people around him.

"That four letter word isn't enough for me."

Yes, there are elements of this book that I absolutely LOVE.
Kai. Hands down, the best part of this book is the enigmatic, scary and sexy leading man. Somewhat of an anti-hero, Kai proves that even a deadly killer can open his heart to love. Witnessing his progression and being inside his head is truly marvelous.



Other elements of this book I really, really LIKE.

I've always been left on the edge of my seat with my heart rattling around in my chest. Nonstop action, high speed chases, bullets flying and those crazy ass explosions. Is there any wonder why I'd crave more? Hands down five star read!

This is the second highly gripping instalment in the Unyielding Series, which focuses on the relationship between Kai and London, but with an ongoing storyline that will span all three books in this series.

What I did know was how to kill. Break. Destroy. And do it with a smile.

There were times when I thought 'Just what the hell am I reading?', and there were times when I thought Nashoda Rose is a freaking genius, which btw. I'm still thinking. This book made me feel so many emotions. I was happy, got my hopes crushed, then became angry and near the end left

I feel like I waited an eternity to get Kai's story and I've been interested in him from the first moment we met him in Torn From You. I just knew that his story would be one that I would never forget.



Kai was trained from a very young age to never have attachments. He was taught to be an emotionless killer with no feelings. But when an assignment brings him to London he becomes protective of her and starts to care for her. He was never supposed to get close to her, he was defini

Kai is a mysterious, cold and calculating assassin. From when he was a young boy, Kai was trained to be emotionless and to endure pain; however, his belief system was slightly thrown off kilter when he encountered London for the first time years ago. Since then, London has been a weakness in Kai’s life and such feelings are not tolerated unless it benefits Vault.

You get to go back in time to the first time London lays eyes on Kai, the start of their unconventional relationship and as you move forward through the years you’re given bits and pieces of the mystery that is Kai and his connection to the Vault.
