There was nothing I cared about except her.
She was mine.
But I’d forgotten her—my shutterbug.
And I lost her.
I’d do anything to possess her again.
Anything to keep her safe.
Protect her against my biggest opponent.
“NOTHING WAS CERTAIN except for detonation. Detonation of my mind. A complex web of unsettled darkness that threatened to spark and explode at any moment. That was my fuckin’ certainty. Uncontrollable. Uncontained.”
“We stayed like that for a long time. Both of us searching for what we’d never found–simple. A love with no pain. A love that brings us together not tears us apart. A love uncomplicated. But like he said, we didn’t get simple. We didn’t get the white picket fence. We didn’t get happily ever after. And I didn’t get to keep Connor.”
“There had been no question what I needed to do, because she was right. I had to fight harder. I had to risk losing everything if I wanted a chance at limitless.”
What an amazing, epic end to this series. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but I have been waiting and I mean waiting for Connor’s story. And Nashoda Rose does not disappoint. Connor’s story was everything I wanted and then more.
Told from dual points of view, Perfect Rage follows the story of Alina and Connor. When we first meet up with Alina, she is trying to escape her past. The last thing she ever anticipated was finding Connor. They found love in an unexpected place. Alina knew her time with Connor was almost up, but the two of them were going to fight for their love and find a way to make their relationship work. All it too was one phone call to make things change…..Over the next few years, Alina and Connor’s lives will be forever changed. They will both do and see things that they won’t be able to forget. They will both have to fight in order to survive. But, sometimes surviving is the hardest part. The road to happily ever after for Alina and Connor will not be an easy one. There will be a lot of struggles and obstacles along the way. But, as the saying goes, anything worth having is worth fighting for. All you can do, is hope for the best and sit back and enjoy the ride.
Perfect Rage was an intense and quick read for me. I read this book easily in one sitting. I literally could not read the pages fast enough. I was consumed by Alina and Connor’s story from the very beginning and was desperate to see how it would all play out. Alina and Connor’s story is not an easy one. It is intense and quite dark at times. Some moments will shock you, while others will break your heart. I know mine was pulled into a ton of different directions. I went from wanting to knock some sense into Connor to wanting to just give him a hug and tell him that it will all be ok.
There is so much that I want to say about this book, but I’m not going to. Perfect Rage is one of those stories that speaks for itself. It’s complex. It’s heartbreaking. It’s raw and very real. It is intense and full of love. It will make you want to stand up and fight for what you want, even in the bleakest moments. It shows you the real meaning of friendship and the lengths that some will go to help their friends find light again. This book was everything that I have come to know and love in a Nashoda Rose book. It was extremely well written and captivated me right until the very end. My only complaint is that this is last book in this series. But, if it’s got to end….well, what a way to go. Nashoda Rose gave me the absolute best ending I could have asked for. And as sad as I am to say goodbye, I can not wait to see what Nashoda Rose has waiting for me to read next…..
