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 . . .
About the Author:
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
That’s not a bad hmm.
That’s an “I-don’t-know-where-to-start” hmm.
This book actually rocked me. Rocked my heart, rocked my soul…
I have been wanting to read a Kristen Ashley book for a while now. Of course, things seem to keep getting in the way so I hadn’t. Until now.
I got my grubby little hands on Walk Through Fire through Netgalley and dove headfirst. What was I expecting? Who knows. I was expecting riveting characters. And boy were Millie and “High” (Logan) riveting. Their personality sang through the pages. Their feelings for each other had my heart clenching. Their pain, agony, and memories shattered me.
As I was reading, my face covered in tears, sobbing at one o’clock in the morning, I kept saying, “Why do I do this to myself? Why do I put myself through these pains and heartbreak?”
But then something cute would happen. Something hot (OMG clenching my pillow and wanting to climb in bed with hubby hot), something absolutely breath-taking would happen. Kristen made me remember why I love reading so much. Not because of the sex, not because of the hot characters, but because the disastrous reality of love and life that is interwoven on the pages.
This book in specific got to me because it really focuses in on the importance of family. Not every romance novel is able to pull that off. Chances are the hero/heroine have some sort of falling-out with the family. But High and Millie are so family-focused. Everything about them is just fantastic. *sigh* I think I’m in a book hangover, because I sat in the car today with my hubby and I looked over at him and said “I just read the most incredible book last night.” He didn’t ask. He knows better then that. Because then I will rant on and on, telling him every minute detail about the book because I suck at summarizing.
Needless to say, I need to pick up the first three of the Chaos series. And the Rock Chick series because I’ve heard they’re incredible. Because now that I’ve had a taste of the Kristen Ashley cake, I’m ready to eat the whole damn thing. And lick the bowl.
