I lie to survive.
Have since I was sixteen and my world fell into chaos. But I found a way to endure, or rather it found me. Now I’m a prisoner of my own doing, hiding behind a false mask so no one sees the truth. Not even the man I want but can’t have—Deck. But I messed up and the lies are spilling over, out of control.
Deck is unrelenting and will settle for nothing less than the truth. He demands everything from me—EVERYTHING—even if it rips me apart.
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. Now I think it’s time we play mine.
Note: Unyielding is a spinoff of Tear Asunder series. This book can be read as a standalone since the characters were perfectly introduced for new readers. But I highly recommended reading Tear Asunder beforehand to enhance your reading experience.
Georgie first knew Deck as her brother Connor’s best friends who were both in an elite military unit. When she was 16 tragedy struck when Connor was killed in action. Connor was the one who always had her back and his death left her feeling alone. As Connor’s team leader, Deck was there when Connor died and he was there to tell the news to his family.
“I wish it was you, not him.”
After Connor’s death, Deck disappeared for two years continuing his job. When he came back, Georgie was a changed woman. She owned and run a coffee shop while Deck formed his own private tactical team, Unyielding Riot that dealt with scum of the earth.
Ten years gone by since Connor’s death and Deck never wavered in his promise to his best friend – to keep an eye on Georgie and don’t mess with her much to her annoyance. Unbeknown to him, Georgie had been keeping secrets and telling him lies.
She drank and party hard to the point Deck can’t overlook anymore. It turned out it was her way to cover and deflect from her secrets. And she sure had a lot of them. When you thought you uncover something, something else was being revealed next.
Early on, something big was revealed. It was a major turning point in the story direction (and eventually the whole series). We got to learn more about Georgie’s past – about what happened between Connor’s death and Deck’s return. The events in her past paved a road to her current predicament and how it related to Deck’s own current mission. Together, with some unlikely allies, they embarked on a mission to uncover the truth while not getting themselves killed.
Overall, I like the story. It has a good balance of romance, action and suspense. I’ve love Deck since he was first introduced in Tear Asunder series. I love his mysteriousness and intensity.
I love Georgie in the beginning of the book with how she was so forward with Deck. She had the potential to be annoying but I think her character had balance as the book progressed.
I love the Unyielding Riot boys especially Tyler. And of course I love Kai. I have been intrigued with him since his appearance in Tear Asunder series and can’t wait for the continuation of his story in the next book.
