Review ~ Walk Through Fire


Millie Cross knows what it's like to burn for someone. She was young and wild and he was fierce and even wilder-a Chaos biker who made her heart pound. They fell in love at first sight and life was good, until she learned she couldn't be the woman he needed and made it so he had no choice but to walk away. Twenty years later, Millie's chance run-in with her old flame sparks a desire she just can't ignore. And this time, she won't let him ride off . . .

Bad boy Logan "High" Judd has seen his share of troubles with the law. Yet it was a beautiful woman who broke him. After ending a loveless marriage, High is shocked when his true love walks back into his life. Millie is still gorgeous, but she's just a ghost of her former self. High's intrigued at the change, but her betrayal cut him deep-and he doesn't want to get burned again. As High sinks into meting out vengeance for Millie's betrayal, he'll break all over again when he realizes just how Millie walked through fire for her man

There are two things that I love when it comes to my reading. Kristen Ashley and second chance romance stories. In the previous Chaos series, we got little glimpses of Logan "High" Judd. What I saw was that he had a quiet intensity to him. An enigma, you may say. He was an puzzle that us readers wanted to solve. In Walk Through Fire, all the puzzle pieces are put together: slowly, brutally, emotionally, lovingly and peacefully.

High met the love of his life early on in life. Millie Cross was a free fun loving spirited soul that caught the attention of High. Through flashbacks we see how they met and how their love grew. We see that they were perfect for each other. Millie unexpectedly breaks off with Logan and they both go through their own version of hell. High has his place in Chaos. He's recently divorced and a father to two girls. Millie is highly successful living a lonely single life. When the time comes for them to meet after many years, it's an emotionally painful reunion. High is still hurt on how everything went down and because of his pain, he lashes out along with the rest of Chaos. Millie has had enough and when she wants to put everything behind her, once and for all, Benito Valenzuela(you know, the bad dude) makes his play and this ultimately brings High and Millie together. As they learn about each other, you see that their love never died. Words are said. Love is to be made. The secret will come out. Paris is to be seen and High and Millie are were they belong, together.

Now. While I enjoyed the story, there were some things that was missing. During the flashbacks, we didn't get to see when Millie broke up with High. I wanted to read about his reaction. What did he say? How did he take it? Did he become a manwhore to erase Millie from his mind? I wanted that. No, I NEEDED that. I wanted that angst and it wasn't there. Another thing was the secret. It's what drove Millie to do what she did with High but I didn't buy it. It was a factor for their future but it wasn't a deal breaker. Lastly was Benito Valenzuela. He made his move and then poof, he was gone. I would love for in the future books, more interaction with him and Chaos. I want that suspense. All in all with Benito was very anti-climactic. I was left unsatisfied.

“Marry me.”

“What?” I stared back at him, unblinking.

He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. “I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me.”

What’s an eighteen-year-old girl who was madly in love with her nineteen-year-old boyfriend say?

Of course, I said yes.

Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel to the sounds of “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. Not the best omen. I get that now.

Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why.

I haven’t seen him since. Not in ten long years.

Now, he’s here, standing before me. Looking at me with nothing but hurt and hatred in his eyes, he wants answers.

Answers I can’t give.
