Meet the intense and sexy bad boy bikers of the Chaos Motorcycle Club in Millie and High's story from Kristen Ashley's New York Times bestselling series.
The flame never dies . . .
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 . . .
Whew! Walk Through Fire by Kristen Ashley started off so differently than I imagined from the previous stories in this series. The surprises didn’t stop at the beginning but carried the same theme throughout it’s story.
I did skim through parts of Walk Through Fire for a few reasons:
- The way the story started, and what I read of the synopsis, I knew Walk Through the Fire was going to emotionally gut me and I felt that I needed to go ahead and get the punishment over and done with.
- The little bit more I read of the story my gut was letting me know that if I didn’t get to where High and Millie see each other again after 20 years I was going to have a nervous breakdown.
- Lastly, I really needed Millie and High to their HEA (happy ever after) and to have all the angst stop.
If you can’t tell, I wasn’t emotionally, mentally, or physically ready for Walk Through Fire.
Emotionally, I haven’t been this scarred by a Kristen Ashley story in a long time. The angst of almost all the characters – yes, what goes between Millie and High affects Chaos MC on such a personal level that you can’t even imagine – was on a whole other level.
Mentally, I just wasn’t prepared, nor could I imagined the f-uped-ness that I would have to wrap my head around. So many thoughts and assumptions and predictions were going through my head as to what would be coming around each corner for these characters, and just the story of Walk Through Fire in general.
Physically, never have I had a book other than Sinner’s Creed by Kim Jones, where I have been stuck in one position constantly having tears, unconsciously, leak from my eyes. It’s weird because I almost always know when I’m crying, but I was so engrossed with everything Walk Through Fire had to offer that on the basest level I glued to all the emotions and goings on within its story.
Even though I’ve skimmed through parts of Walk Through Fire it will officially be dubbed the best book of 2017. The bar has been set and now I’m interested to see what stories come next and how they measure up.
