{eARC Review} Walk Through Fire (Chaos #4) by Kristen Ashley

Walk Through Fire (Chaos, #4)
Walk Through Fire (Chaos #4) by Kristen Ashley
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 . . .

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!
I'm conflicted. I gave Walk Through Fire four stars, meaning I really liked it and I did. I also hated it. I cried my way through most of it. The first third was agonizing, the pain of now, the flashbacks to happy times but knowing it would end, and end badly. It does get better, the joy of rediscovery, but it's also bittersweet. Rebuilding is emotional, they've changed, experienced things, but ultimately makes them stronger. 

I think Millie was one of the most loving, self-sacrificing, confused girls I've ever met. She sacrifices everything, is living this sad little half life, and when we finally find out why she did what she did I was both awed at her sacrifice, and knowing Millie, the depth of her love, it is exactly what she'd do. I also wanted to smack her up side the head - hard - because she was also ridiculously stupid. I liked her endless capacity of love, her generous spirit, and was happy to see her finally get her happily ever after.
I hated Logan. A lot. For quite a while. But once we see his point of view it's hard not to understand his pain too. And then seeing Logan with his kids, with his brothers, when he's sweet and tender with Millie, I liked what I saw. But he's also hot headed, quick to act - and overreact.

Full of Kristen Ashley's trademark alpha males and sassy, independent women with drama and passion on every page. If you're a fan of the Chaos series or Kristen Ashley you won't be disappointed.
