This is Connor's story.

Consumed by perfect rage.
I was fighting who I’d become and what I’d done.

There was nothing I cared about except her.
She was mine.
But I’d forgotten her—my shutterbug.
And I lost her.

Until now.

I’d do anything to possess her again.
Anything to keep her safe.
Protect her against my biggest opponent.

The monster.

Demons. Shadows. I fought them all until I couldn't anymore.

Even before Perfect Chaos, but especially after, I've been anticipating Connor's book. The damaged, tortured man that finally made an appearance in Perfect Ruin is barely recognizable from the memory that everyone has of him. Seven years of living in capture and daily torture will break any man, but The Vault also stole his memories. Now he's out, his tormentor dead at his hands, and his memories a fragmented puzzle o

Connor O'Neill up until last book we had no idea what had happened to him. When everyone thought he was dead he was living in hell. Connor meets a beautiful girl when he was nineteen years old and falls for her and is willing to give his life for her and be her protector.

Prettier Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

While reading this I had one face in my mind that would go perfectly with the hero of this book:

Connor before he was taken:

I can't stop staring. He's beauty.
Plus, Scott Eastwood has the perfect scowl.

Connor after:

Right. I digress.

Alina left her Colombian home to run from the grasp of an evil drug lord. She sees the world through the lens of her camera so she is hired to go to Afghanistan and report about an orphanage. A wayward soccerbal

"The only thing I felt was rage."
Perfect Rage is the third book in the Unyielding Series. Nashoda Rose delivers another broken, beautiful story that will leave you breathless and wanting more! Each book in the series is critical to the story arc of the characters, so I highly recommend you read the series in order.

"I was a ticking time bomb with no timer."
Connor was introduced at the beginning of the series as the lost brother to Georgie.

There was every possibility that I'd set my expectations at an unattainable high with this book. There's always one in a series that you anticipate the most, and count the days until you get your hands on it. That one that oozes with potential and has you desperate to see the story realized. So it goes without saying that I went into it with some trepidation

I discovered Nashoda Rose with this series, and from the first book,Perfect Chaos, I wanted Connor’s story. I knew it’d be dark, tortured and broken but damn, Nashoda exceeded all my expectations.

This was a beautifully broken love story with such anguish, torment and healing. While Connor was dark and damaged, his intense innate nature to protector and love was still alive, although buried deep within him.

I feel like I've been waiting for Connor's story for forever, but trust me when I say that the wait was well worth it. Nashoda Rose took a story that I already knew would be amazing and somehow made it even better than I thought possible. I loved Connor and Alina together, and even apart they were amazing characters. Which is not something I typically say about a heroine.

How far is too far?

Fear can be a funny thing. I probably seem a bit silly but I was scared to start Perfect Rage. I'm not a tough reader. I like my hearts and flowers, Prince Charmings and sighing fair maidens. Sometimes, I feel tough and take on a darker type of read. Now, with these type of books I need to prepare myself. And that's why I hesitated to take a peek into Connor and Alina's hell...

EXTRAORDINARY! Nashoda Rose created the most emotionally beautiful, heart wrenching, soul touching, and without a doubt, absolutely unforgettable story in PERFECT RAGE!

Connor and Alina – Catalina – meet eleven prior to the present time set of the book on Afghanistan, where Alina went as a magazine photographer on a piece about an orphanage and Connor was on the end of his mission before doing the tryouts for the Canadian special forces.

5 "Limitless Love" Stars!

Nashoda Rose is one of the very few authors that has not once disappointed me. Her books tend to skate the thin line of dark yet the love story within the plot seems to lighten the load. Perfect Rage is Connor's story and with the tragic backstory of this character, I couldn't wait to see how she'd pull off such a painfully flawed character, that despite being a true hero, was held captive, drugged and turned until a cold-hearted anti-hero. Should I love him or hate him

Rage, wow this book is full of it and it's all embedded into one single man. Meet Connor, a man tortured by his past that obscures his view on the future that he could have with his long lost love.

I loved reading this story! It's another Nashoda Rose winner! I really enjoyed the previous book, Perfect Ruin and I was so happy to see all the wonderful and badass characters back in this book.

Olga therebelreader

Perfect Rage is yet another winner from Nashoda Rose. This book has some really tough subjects: physical abuse, torture, PTSD, feelings of guilt, haunted and angry hero. At times, it was really rough.

The story is told present day with flashbacks to a horrific time when Connor was kidnapped and physically and psychologically tortured. These flashbacks were brutal but the author made it work. It’s hard for him to deal with the aftermath of being abducted and tortured. H

I was curious about Connor and Alina's connection from the previous book but this was nothing like I imagined. It's the tale of a broken man who needs to find his way in order to let love into his life. Connor and his shutterbug Alina meet when he's on tour escorting her to an orphanage where she will work as a photographer. They spend a month together and fall sweetly into love. But secrets have a way of coming to light and Alina's do with a vengeance. The book follows a very difficult trail fo ...more

I don’t like saying goodbye to a series I’ve gotten passionately about. Characters I’ve watched grow from infantile stages to who they are. Their nightmarish struggles, rising from the ashes though changed. Connor and Alina’s story was probably one of the hardest I’ve read. Yes, spent a lot of time wiping my eyes and using the good old kleenex. Seeing such a strong man break, relearn balance out of chaos was staggering. Then there’s Alina. She’s ventured into hell just as much as he has. Differe ...more

It feels like I have been waiting FOREVER for Connor’s story so I could not wait to finally discover what happened to him and I was not disappointed.

Perfect Rage is amazing and tells Connor’s harrowing story from the past to the present day of what Vault did to him the isolation the torture and what they turned him into with the drugs but Connor is stronger than they thought and a piece of Alina stayed with him even when he was a machine. No longer on drugs Connor is

So freaking good!!!!!!!!!
I think everyone who read this series was excited to read Connor's story, and once again Nashoda delivered she gave us a story that I just couldn’t put down.
As usual her writing was perfect,she always gets everything right I really couldn't stop reading. The story sucks you in from the first till the very last page. When I was done I wanted to read more I didn't want to say goodbye to these amazing characters.

Wow ... Again wow! This is one of my favorite authors. She writes amazing, captivating stories full of suspense with wonderful characters. I loved her Tear Asunder and Unyielding series and hope there are many more books to come.

I can’t even. Seriously, Nashoda. You broke me. I expected Connor’s story to be epic. I expected it to be thrilling and intense. But I never... I never expected it to feel like a sledgehammer smashed my heart into pieces. For those that have followed the series, Connor’s story has been highly anticipated. It has lingered in the background of all the books and we finally get to know exactly what happened to him, how he ended up being a pawn for vault, who the girl was that he wrote about in his j ...more

Out of the blue comes an author who has written the ultimate love story. Soul-deep love that stood the test of time and grew into a lasting love. Connor first saw Alina in Afganistan when she was working on a photography on the orphans there and he was at the end of his mission in the military. On seeing each other for the first time, they knew "it was something special" and shortly after they have fallen in love

It's official. Nashoda is on my list of 1-click authors. This one was another hit! I loved what I read from the Tear Asunder series and fell in love with this group of characters and the lovefest has continued with Perfect Rage. I've been intrigued by Connor for quite some time and when I saw that my girl from The 6ix wrote his story, I was on that quick. I've had it sitting on my kindle for a while and I'm annoyed that it took me so damn long to get to it. But boy was it worth the wait.
