When I read some of Nashoda Rose’s Tear Asunder books, I was curious about Deck and Georgie and their relationship. I was excited to get their book. Let me throw this out here... Georgie was nothing like I expected her to be. The twists and turns this author took us on were crazy. I mean, I didn’t know what was going to happen from chapter to chapter. What is she hiding? What's going on? With each revelation made I was just blown away.
Deck has been keeping an eye on Georgie for the last 10 years. Ever since her brother died. It’s his responsibility, but it’s more than that to him. Georgie has a lot going on. A lot she’s tying to hide and cover up. Georgie is smarter and slyer than she looks. She hides that with drinking, partying and being feisty all the time. But she can’t keep things hidden too deeply when it comes to Deck.
Deck... He was my only weakness and no matter what I did, I couldn't’ get him out of me.
Deck controls everything around him. It’s his job to keep things in line, to keep things in order. Otherwise, everything in his operations could crumble. But there is one thing he’s’ never been able to control. Well, one person.
I wouldn’t yield to anyone. But I did. I yielded to Georgie. I’d let her seep into my veins and take hold, and no matter how many men I killed or women I fucked, I couldn’t get her out of me.
It’s obvious from the start that Deck and Georgie have strong feelings towards one another. There have just been situations that have held either of them back from pursuing it. Now Georgie’s secrets are out. And Deck knows the truth (or part of it) from the past. That was the best part of the story for me. Just waiting for that moment that Deck would say ‘fuck it, I’m taking my girl.’ I loved the build up between them.
She was mine now, and I was never letting her go.
Georgie and Deck together were smoking hot! Seriously, they were sizzling! And once they got together, there was a lot of sex! Which is great, but there was so much more to the story. Which is also great.
As big of a badass and alpha Deck is, he could be incredibly sweet. I loved how protective and strong he was. He would do anything and everything to keep Georgie safe. Whether she needed it or not. Little did he know she had the ability to keep herself safe... Georgie is sassy and fun, but she’s so much more than meets the eye. After hearing some of her past and the things she’s done, I was completely stunned. I love how the Kai story line ties in and I’m so excited to see where his story goes! And I love some of Deck’s boys! Especially Tyler! I wouldn’t complain about getting a Tyler book ;)
I really enjoy this author’s writing style. I love the combination of crazy/intense, sexy/steamy, dark/twisted and then humor is thrown in there too. And romance. The brothers best friend/long time love story is always a favorite of mine. I think it’s great when a story can have all these elements. Make you wonder whats coming next, make you want to cry with the difficult things the hero/heroine has been through but also make you laugh because these characters can be so damn funny! I liked this book a lot and I’m looking forward to the next two books in this series!

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, but not anymore. Now I think it's time we play mine.
*18+ due to sexual content, strong language and violence.
