We were introduced to the secret organization called Vault in Perfect Chaos. We also met Kai whose story I was so looking forward to reading. I loved Deck but Kai is a whole new level of awesome.
He grew up in an institution called the farm, a facility belonging to Vault where kids are raised to become what Kai is today. He is a killer who was steeled and trained to be one of the best, ice-cold, emotionless and focused. His mother is a manipulating, power hungry bitch who killed his father and has his sister imprisoned in one of Vault's locations for helping a fellow kid escape. His current objective is to convince a brilliant scientist to hurry up developing a drug for Vault. He gives Dr. Westbrook a week to come up with a solution.
When London watches a man threatening her father from her hiding place in a closet she feels a chill down her back but also an inexplicable fascination. When he approaches her to press the issue of her father to speed up the drug research she negotiates a deal: Seven days of sex in exchange for more time for her dad. Kai is totally on board with this. London is fascinated with the contradiction that is Kai.
He is cocky, arrogant even, charming but also callous at times. And there are times when he shows an unexpected care for her. There is also a familiarity about him she can't shake. Soon Kai and London realize that they got more than they bargained for and feelings begin to arise they neither want nor can afford.
I think I've read enough dark books to say I can handle most fictional situations. Nothing prepared me for what London had to go through and there were times when I just wanted to curl into a fetal position and rock back and forth. The situations this heroine is pushed into are nothing short of heartbreaking, traumatizing and not for the faint of heart. Yet she shows resilience and extraordinary strength.
London is a compassionate, gentle and quiet girl who wants to become a scientist like her father when we meet her. There is also a stubbornness that helps her overcome a lot of the tragic events she experiences. There are layers added to her over the course of the story but her inherent compassion and sweetness remain in spite of it all. That she doesn't lose her mind is a miracle. With Kai's help she is also able to bounce back from the trauma. Is her recovery realistic? Nope. But it was still damn good to see her getting better. She is the kind of heroine I have come to love.
Kai is delicious in every way. He is beautiful, hilarious and often commanding. There is nothing soft about him except when it comes to London. And why should he be, he went through hell as well to become the way he is and he didn't do so voluntarily. Kai doesn't waste words if there is nothing to say and I have to say I loved this character trait about him. He treated London with sweetness and adoration and it is his care about this girl that starts to chip away at the ice that surrounds his heart and soon he finds himself caring for other people too. I loved that he never broke his promise to come for her if she needed him. Their sexual chemistry was combustible.
This isn't a fairy tale. No butterflies, no rainbow farting unicorns. It is a gritty tale with a high angst factor that gives you light when you almost lose yourself in the darkness of it. It's the main characters' love for each other that makes it shine and takes away the weight. The cruelty and severity of human trafficking addressed in this story is a punch to the gut and I think it only scratches the surface of what is really going on in this world.
It makes me happy that, again, there is no question whether Kai loves London. His feelings are palpable.
We are allowed to slip into Connor's tortured mind and get a little bit of Georgie's POV. We also get to see all the characters from book 1 and an off-the-pages romance between the mysterious Tristan and Kai's sister Francesca. I would love to read their story.
I can only repeat my sentiment from my review of Perfect Chaos. Nashoda Rose has some serious talent and I will definitely read her backlist in the future.
Wow, this story is simply breathtaking. It is so sad and dark at times, sexy at times, intense all the time, and intimately beautifully triumphant. I loved every bit of it.
Kia and London have become one of my favorite couples. They were both so broken... ruined. They suffered unimaginable pain again, and again, but they never gave up. So really in the end they were not ruined at all. They were perfect ;)
Kia is intense, sexy , and determined. He is an assassin with no feelings and no remorse. The ultimate bad boy, and he makes no bones about it; but when it comes to London, he would do whatever he had to do to make her "his London" and to make her safe. London was one of the most resilient characters I've read in a long time. This girl went to Hell and back, then went to Hell and back again! Strong doesn't even begin to describe her. "They may take your body, but never let them have your mind." -Kai
This book is full. Full of intense action, romance and sexy times. I was really looking forward to reading Kai's story. He was so aloof and intriguing in the previous books, and Nashoda Rose did not disappoint. I love it.
Now, I CANNOT WAIT for Connor's book. Please write fast Ms. Rose. Connor, Connor, Connor...
This ongoing story brings chills to my bones just reading about it. If you think this isn't really happening somewhere, you are crazy. But just like these nut jobs out there in the world exist, so do the people like Deck and the guys and even Kai who are working to remove these threats from the world and protect our kids.
I love these books and am anxiously waiting for Connor's story. Sure hope he finds his way back. Look forward to hearing more about the 'gang' soon. Read this book!
