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 . . .
I was provided a review copy by Forever, Grand Central Publishing; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝I was precious. Beloved. Treasured.❞
Walk Through Fire is a happy, feel good novel with flowery biker goodness, that will leave you swooning and wishing the man in your life talked like Low! Okay, call me a sap, I. DO. NOT. CARE. ONE. BIT. But when Low opened his mouth and out came all that goodness, I was under his spell.
I was thrilled to find that Walk Through Fire was High’s book. I first remember High from Motorcycle Man, where he was the scary and serious rebel biker, trying to come to terms with the new regime. Since that time, we have been slowly getting to know High. What we didn’t know then, was while he married and had kids, he wasn’t happy. He wasn’t married to the love of his life, Millie.
Now, in Walk Through Fire, we learn that Logan ‘High’ Judd met Millie Cross at a party twenty years earlier. It was instant love and they moved quickly making plans for their future. Then one day their future came to an abrupt end when Millie’s life as she knew it, came crumbling down. She broke it off with High without any explanation, he didn’t ask for any and just walked away.
❝You love a man, Millie, you believe in him, you take him as he is. You go on his journey with him no matter what happens, even if that means you have to walk through fire.❞
She moved on with her life, changed completely from the biker ‘old lady’ that he knew her to be, to a classy, sophisticated business woman. She tried to fill her life with things that would make her happy, nice clothes, nice cars, nice home… but she never truly found her happiness. High found himself married and divorced with two girls who were the light of his life. But he was an angry, hurt man, living wild and free trying to fill the void of Millie.
They come together again through a chance meeting at Chipotle. Their reunion isn’t a bed of roses. Setting this novel up as a second chance romance.
As is the trend with this series, there is “chaos” and mayhem to be had. Valenzuela is back and wreaking havoc and potentially putting the new-found relationship in danger.
There are some good messages within the pages of this book; don’t stop fighting for what you want, don’t let others make decisions about your life and dreams, and if it’s worth it, you have to “walk through fire” ~ go through the crap, deal with the messy, tough it out.
❝Nothing wrong with dreaming. But you got it right. Best way to dream is to do it, then earn it, no matter how that happens.❞
Were there darlings and brothers? Of course, this is Kristen Ashley, alpha male goodness after all. But I admired Millie’s strength and courage, and loved High’s dedication and tenderness enough that I wasn’t bothered by the repetitiveness. Strong heroine’s and protective males are my weakness!
I can’t wait for the next book and am HOPING it is HOUND’s story! crossing fingers.
