The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

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 . . .

Not kidding, the highs and lows of my emotional state during this book was off the chart.  I can’t even begin to tell you what a toll this book was on me.  The very first page had me hooked, in fact, it was so good that the closer I got to the end of the book the more I started putting off finishing it because I didn’t want it to end.  I still wanted to stay in the life of Millie and Low.  But then, on the other hand, I wanted nothing more than to be immersed in their story and finish the book.  There was a serious battle happening in my brain and heart. 

In an instant, I fell in love with Millie.  She had a solid head on her shoulder, she still had feelings for Low the second she laid eyes on him, and she sacrificed her happiness for the one she loved the most.  She is the perfect KA girl!  So in the first minute of this book, Millie was the greatest, but I will have to admit that I did not feel this way about Low in the beginning.  His attitude and the way he treated Millie had completely turned me off of his character.  I kept thinking that Millie deserved much better than him through a good chunk of the book and it took me a while to realize just how perfect they were for each other.

A good part of the beginning is not about wooing or rekindling a long lost love, it is a lot of anger.  These two characters who only knew love for each other twenty years ago now only feels hate. It is explosive to say the least. But after a “nudge” things change for the beautiful.  A whole new world is unwrapped and the beauty of Millie and Low was mind shattering. 
It was like their love was predetermined and written in the stars kind of love.  Low would do anything for his girls, this includes his daughters, and Millie would do anything for them, including getting kidnapped.  Don’t ask, just read.

Like I have always said, KA is one of our favorites of all times.  Everything she writes warms our hearts and makes us happy.  She has a brilliant talent and I am so glad that I get to read her work.

Just one small question, and please do feel free to help solve it for me, was anyone else confused about the epilogue regarding Shy and Tabby? They already had their story but it read like took place a while ago even thought it stated it was three and a half months after the end of Mille and Low’s story.
