There is still a lot of unfinished business in the club. I can’t wait to see where the journey of the Chaos crew takes us next. ~ Rhayne, Guilty Pleasures
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 . . .
Review copy provided for an honest review
Walk Though Fire is the first Kristen Ashley book I have read that I absolutely didn’t love. I liked it okay, but it just didn’t have a love connection with me for some reason.
It’s a second chance romance but you don’t really get into the details of their split right away. This leaves a lot of chapters open for him to spew hate towards her and the reader not fully understanding the background. When I say he threw hate her way, he did it in a way that was hard for me to get over once all the details came into play. I’m sure it was just a personal issue, but it didn’t sit well with me.
This story is a combination of many pieces coming together and it’s a slow process to build the final puzzle. There is the history between Millie and High, the addition of his children, MC club business causing issues, the reconnection of a lost love and all this mixed around side characters that play a huge part of the story. It’s a very busy book.
Millie was a strong character who sacrificed her own happiness for Highs. She’s lived her life for everyone else, but hasn’t seen her own kind of happy since she let High go. Once she decided to come clean with him and let him know why she pushed him away, it opens their lives up to one another again. They have a lot of issues to work through and they eventually get there, but it’s not an easy road they travel and it’s full of road blocks.
High eventually married and had two girls. He and Deb never had a love connection and divorced years later. I thought it was refreshing reading about an ex who was cool and not out to cause shit. That is a totally new turn, and it worked so well in this story. I also really like the way his girls were portrayed. It was an emotional and very honest take on how children feel when a parent is ready to move on and make a new family.
As you can see, there were a lot of things I enjoy about this book, but I just didn’t feel a connection to this couple like I have with other books. I feel like too much time was spent trying to figure everything out and it took a little away from what they needed to build.
There is still a lot of unfinished business in the club. I can’t wait to see where the journey of the Chaos crew takes us next.
