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 .
And as I keep growing up, it keeps getting better.
So here I am, thank goodness.


★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

The first half of this book was a definite 5 Star read for me, it had a massive amount of love/hate sexual tension and there was a mystery surrounding the reasons for High and Millie hating each other. My eyes were glued, I couldn’t look away from the pages and it was perfection.

The second half maybe hit a 3.5, I felt it dragged a bit after the big reveal but it was good all the same.

Millie was a young 18 year old when she met biker Logan at a party. It was love at first sight and they spent 3 wonderful years together planning their life. They were going to have a family and live happily ever after, but something went extremely wrong because at the start of this book, we learn that High has never been the same man since the woman he trusted with his heart left him in the dust without any explanation whatsoever.

When Millie spots High in a Chipotle Mexican Grill (I want one of these in England, I’m so jealous) talking on the phone about his daughters, she decides it’s been long enough, and after 20 years she wants to make peace with him and finally move on in her life.

“I’ve been walking through fire for you for twenty years, Logan.”

What she isn’t expecting is the hatred to be pouring off of him when she comes face to face with the man that she once shared a life with. High is fuming that she has come back after all these years and still affects him so intensely.

She is not the woman she used to be, with her fancy job and fancy clothes, she is like the opposite of the fun loving laid back person he knew. But he sees through her, he sees that she is the ghost of a woman, and vows to find out why.

As usual, we have lots of cameos from other books, Elvira is a constant presence as are Tack & Tyra. I love reconnecting with the whole gang and I think that’s what makes Kristen Ashley books so special, it’s like one big family that you love to spend time with.

All in all, it was a great addition to the series and I loved High & Millie together, both when they were hating on each-other, and also when they were shooting the shit and happy in love.

Walk Through Fire is a standalone, but part of a series of interconnected characters. Told in dual POV.

About the Author

I was born a middle class white child in Gary, Indiana, USA. One of the last of a dying breed. I nearly killed my mother and myself making it into the world, seeing as I had the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck (already attempting to accessorize and I hadn’t taken my first breath!). Mom says they took me away, put her back in her room, she looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). She remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.
All I’ve ever wanted to do was write (well, and be the Queen of the World, but you gotta start small) and I’ve published a gazillion books and counting (and a gazillion is a lot! shoo!).You can learn about my titles that have been released or that are soon to be released in the Titles section of the website.
Even though I jump genres, there is always a theme to my books…humor (hopefully), engaging characters (again, hopefully) and romance (definitely).
My loves are movies, music, food and fashion and I partake of all of them as often as I can (the middle two more than the others, the former, which takes time I don’t often have and the latter, which takes money I rarely have). In fact, I love food so much, I like to share my good fortune so I put my recipes on offer for you on this page (see top menu and don’t miss them, they’re awesome!).
I grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and have lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus I’m blessed to have friends and family around the globe. My family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write and growing up it was large and multi-generational. We all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. I grew up with 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 I keep growing up, it keeps getting better.

So here I am, thank goodness.
