I kill for a living.
Unyielding—It’s how I survive in my line of work. I bend people to my will…except Georgie.But that ends now.I've played her game for far too long, but not anymore. Now I think it's time we play mine.
Perfect Chaos (Unyielding #1)
By Nashoda Rose.
I needed a little Perfect in my life.
WoW!! I mean seriously WOW!! Perfect Chaos was bloody good. I practically read it in one sitting. Hubby knew I was feeling a little under the weather and told me he’d get our little one to school the next day so I could sleep in. I’m not the greatest sleeperinerer, so it generally means that he’s giving me free time to read. I don’t sleep in too well because once my eyes are open, my first thought is…what book am I reading? Then, I’m looking at the clock to work out if it’s either – A) go back to sleep, it’s four o’clock in the morning you bloody idiot. Or B) 5 or 5:30ish, early waking, I can justify slipping in an hour reading before the day starts. By the time I have assessed and calculated all of this, I’m wide awake anyways so it doesn’t matter what the time is I’m pretty much resigned to the fact that I’m now going to start reading.
Anyways…I started reading Perfect Chaos and I couldn’t put it down. I literally stopped reading for two things coffee and to watch the Fijian Rugby Seven guys receive Fiji’s first gold medal (which brought a tear to my eye). By the time I finished Perfect Chaos I had a massive headache from reading too long…but, I was in love with a new series…or a new series that follows on from another series I love.
Now, Perfect Chaos wasn’t necessarily an easy book to read. You are faced with seeing the devastation a family is brought when a loved one is lost fighting for their country overseas. In some cases, you also have to see what the bearer of the bad news must face as well. It’s not an easy job but someone has to do it. Georgie lost her brother Connor and it was Connor’s best mate and brother in arms Deck, who lets the family know. Georgie being a very young an innocent 16-year-old attacks Deck with hurtful words which are pretty understandable from her side but not really fair to him. Deck knows he has caused devastation and leaves the family to deal with their grief.
Georgie never really recovers the loss of Connor but she also feels abandoned by Deck who had become part of their family, when he doesn’t return for two years. When he does come back, he takes on the role of Georgie’s protector. What follows is years of Deck trying to save Georgie from herself. Her partying seems to get her into a lot of scrapes that Deck has to get her out of. It’s pretty obvious to everyone around them that they have feelings for each other and they are fighting a losing battle.
Deck promised he wouldn’t touch his best mates sister so he doesn’t for a very long time. Every man who looks at Georgie is not good enough for her and there is no way he’s going to let Georgie settle for less than perfect. In other words…If he can’t have her, no one can.
Besides the love story that develops between Georgie and Deck there is a very exciting storyline involving secrets, mysteries and baddies. At first, you think that none of the circumstances is connected but as you go on you realise that somehow all of it is. I found this part exciting and very interesting.
There are some parts of the story that are a little hard to deal with but at no time was I pushed too far out of my comfort zone. Of course, it upset me, but it was never too graphic or too gruesome.
The connection between Deck and Georgie jumped off the pages. I loved when they finally come together and the steamy scenes definitely got my heart pumping.
I thoroughly enjoyed Perfect Chaos and before I had even finished it I had bought #2 – Perfect Ruin which is Kai and London’s story.
