Perfect Ruin by Nashoda Rose

“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 lady. Although she may be victimized, London is the embodiment of strength. Just like Kai, London’s development in this book is fabulous.
The love story is phenomenal. I really adored every moment of Kai & London. I also enjoyed unraveling the mystery surrounding Vault. This carried over from the previous installment in the series & played out really well.
But some elements of the narrative that were just OKAY.
What didn’t really quite hit home for me, were the action moments. There seemed to be just a bit too much redundancy and some of the descriptive didn’t bring me into the moment. I felt more like I was sitting on the sidelines watching it at times. And it felt like we were going in the same circle for a while.
This book is not a standalone. It is the second in the Unyielding series. This series is a spin-off of the Tear Asunder series. But, I have not read Tear Asunder and have still really enjoyed both of the Unyielding books.
