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 story of Kai and London.

★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★

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.

I have to admit, my brain was struggling quite a bit to remember all of the many details in book 1 Perfect Chaos, which would have added to my enjoyment of this story because I spent a lot of time getting back up to speed as to who everyone was and how they all connected to each other and the storyline.

Kai was one of the children who grew up in the Vault, an underground operation that trains kids to become killers in order to carry out covert missions.

“A secret government that didn’t follow laws, but had laws of its own.”

He has learnt to lock down his emotions and follow orders without hesitation, but he secretly wants to bring down the organisation, with his own cold hearted mother at the helm, and the main reasons for that involve two women, his sister and a woman named London.

London is the daughter of a scientist, who has been roped into helping the Vault to create a drug that will help them turn men and women into cold blooded killing machines, however she is unaware of this and remains to be an innocent right up until the day she is kidnapped for getting too close to Kai.

“My brave scientist ruined. They’d ruined her.
She’s been fuckin’ perfect. She was brave and cute and caring and fuckin’ perfect, and they’d ruined everything she was.”

London and Kai have only spent a week together, she feels safe with him, so when the awful events that will change her life forever occur, she only has the hope that one day he will save her from a life of sexual servitude and degradation.

“I’ll always come for you, braveheart.”

This book is told from both past and present and spans several years, it was very fast paced and I was literally on the edge of my seat with all the action that took place. The sexual chemistry was very believable, and I genuinely felt the connection between the two main characters. I would describe this as erotic suspense, it had a hell of a lot of sex scenes in it, perhaps a little too much for my personal tastes, I ended up skimming them towards the end.

Overall, as a series, it is turning out to be a very interesting storyline and Perfect Ruin held my attention throughout.

This is part 2 of an ongoing series, each book focuses on different characters, but personally, I would not recommend that you read it as a standalone. Told in dual POV.
