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 . . .
A second chance romance is a favorite trope of mine. It usually works for me. Very seldom does it not work. This story was a great example of a second chance at love. The kind of love that comes along and consumes you. Makes any and all sacrifices worth it.
High and Millie’s story was a tale of love lost, years lost, lives changed for some and for another, a life that’s just an existence. What would you do if the person you were in love with would lose what they wanted most if they stayed with you? Either way you chose, someone would be devastated.
I had so many emotions while reading this book. Sadness at life’s cruelties. Anger at a group a men who are portrayed as heroes when they were really a bunch of bullies. To a woman no less. Contentment with how it all worked out. Happiness at love coming full circle. Love teaching us that there is no greater emotion. Well done again Kristen Ashley.
