BLOG TOUR: Perfect Ruin (Unyielding #2) by Nashoda Rose **REVIEW & GIVEAWAY**


There is nothing I care about.
No attachments.
No connections.
Outwardly, I’m a perfect gentleman.
Until my target sees my knife.
I fear nothing, not even death.
In my world, death is considered a privilege.
But my life comes with unbreakable cruel strings and
when I met her, I should’ve walked away.
I didn’t.
I was too selfish.
And that sealed her fate.
Because one week with me led her into the hands of ruin.


We all have unique layers that make up who we are.
What makes us vulnerable or strong.
What we fear and what excites us.
But peel back those layers and you’re left naked and exposed.
They did that to me.
Each piece was slowly stripped away then burned.
I merely existed.
But there was one layer they overlooked.
The most important of them all—the tie to one man.
The man responsible for me being this way.
The man who found me.
And the killer who would do anything to protect me.

Perfect Ruin is the dark erotic story of Kai and London.
Their beginning.
And the continuing story of Vault.

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) with the last book, Perfect Chaos, even giving us a bleak snippet of her predicament.

This was not an easy read and while I'd thought it would've been darker, upon reflection, I think this is a book were your darkest fears and imagination will ruin you.
Nashoda doesn’t shy away from giving you just enough detail and hints so that you get the devastatingly evil picture but she also leaves a lot to your own imagination. What London/Raven endured would shred most souls and leave behind a corpse of a person.

Kai and London made sense. It wasn't always pretty and some of the shit they both (especially London) had to go through was all kinds of fucked up but their bond was beautiful.

"I knew without a doubt that being with Kai was dangerous, but it was also the safest place I could be. And the only place I wanted to be.”

“Kai ruined me for other men. For life without him, I’d hated him. Feared him. Desired him. Needed him. And loved him.”

This is not a standalone. You must read at least Perfect Chaos before this although, I'd recommend reading the Tear Asunder series to fully appreciate this story as some of this tale takes place at the same time as Logan and Emily's story from book 1. Also, more of the puzzle is revealed in this story as it neatly provides some missing pieces from other stories.

“But what I saw in her eyes was more powerful…it imprisoned me. I didn’t know what love felt like, but what I felt for her was indescribable with a single word. It was more powerful. It was all consuming.”

Ms. Rose knows how to keep us wanting more as she begins to lay the groundwork for Connor's story. Like Kai, he's been a looming figure throughout both series and if we think Kai had issues, look out! I'm really excited to see what she brings forth with Connor because this boy is wrecked!! I can't wait!
