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 . . .

This book started so promising, I really thought it was another winner by KA but around the 30% it seemed to fizzle and stayed that way throughout.
High was another appealing alpha hero by Kristen Ashley, she writes strong heroes like no other, I liked Millie as well, but their connection seemed lacking; their interactions lacked the passion and fun found in her earlier books.
The conflict was resolved too quickly and then nothing much seemed to happen. I loved the appearances by characters from her earlier books especially Tack, unfortunately not enough to love this book.
For me, Kristen Ashley missed the mark with this novel and has been a bit of a hit and miss lately with her latest releases; still looking forward to her new ventures as she’s one author whose books I will always buy. Not every book can be a winner but most of KA’s books have been winners and on my favorite shelf.
