★★★★ 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.
