"I'll always look out for you, braveheart,"-Kai

Perfect Ruin, the 2nd book in the Unyielding Series, was a heartbreaking, emotional, and beautiful story. Wow...... I have wanted more of Kai ever since I first read about him back in Emily and Logan's story(Torn from You), then after I read Perfect Chaos, the craving was stronger. It was a need. I needed Kai and London

A book with an exceptional and movie-worthy plot: a college girl, a trained killer and the deal with the devil.
“One night and you give him the two months he needs and promise not to hurt him.”
“One week. And he’ll get his two months.”

One week. Seven days of passion and lust in exchange for life.

Easy. Until it isn't. Until everything changes.

Kidnapped. Trapped. Humiliated. Compliant. Terrified. Broken. Trained to pleasure men. Ruined.

This is one of the most intense and gripping

Perfect Ruin is the second book in the splendidly constructed, action packed, high suspense Unyielding Series.

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'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.

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

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.

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'll always look out for you, braveheart."

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

I have and always will love Tear Asunder & Unyielding series! Everything about Nashoda Rose's books thrills and excites me. She's never and I mean never released a bad book. 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!

On a personal note, I didn't like Kai or his character. Does that make me a hypocrite

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.

"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.
London. The perfect match for Kai is a defiant, brilliant and boundless leading

ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.



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

Let me just start off with saying how amazingly mind blowind this story is!!! 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

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.

In the second installment of the Unyielding Series we are given the story of Kai and London, and saying it’s complicated is putting it mildly. Perfect Ruin brings you the complete story of these two. 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.

Dark, gritty, evocative and passionate Nashoda Rose once again gives us a story that we just couldn’t put down. It was fast paced and thrilling. It had romance at the heart surrounded by violence and power and suspense. It had a cast of much loved characters trying to escape a horrific past and present – preventing a horrific future.
