Review: Walk Through Fire

Walk Through Fire Walk Through Fire by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I have no idea why but it took me forever to finish Walk Through Fire. It may have been me because the ratings are great and everyone else seemed to love it. I kept finding reasons to stop reading, to do something else, which is not typical if I'm loving the book I'm reading. I probably should have given up, but I just love Kristen Ashley and I couldn't do it!

Logan "High" Judd and Millie Cross were each other's everything and had their whole lives in front of them. Then out of nowhere Millie walked out on High and made it so that he would let her go. Years later they run into one another again, he's divorced and she's still single. High's intrigued by this new version of Millie, but she hurt him so badly he doesn't have it in him to forgive and forget.

Millie left High when she found out she couldn't have children. She knew how much he wanted kids and was willing to walk away so he could find someone that could give him that. After a chance meeting many years later she is happy that he did have two little girls but hates that he is divorced from their mother. He is cruel to her over and over until she finally walks away again. He learns the reason she walked away the first time and wishes she would have given him the chance to stay but is determined to get her back now. The two of them start to build a life together, and his daughter Cleo is all in but the baby Zadie is not having any part of that. It takes quite a while but she finally starts to come around when two of Valenzuela's men are sent to scare High's daughters and/or Millie and end up kidnapping her, but not before knocking her out. Millie sends Zadie running to her father before she is taken and Zadie is distraught. Valenzuela meets Millie in a hotel room and kills his two men in front of her because they weren't supposed to kidnap her. He is convinced that he still has the upper hand on Chaos, and he is so confident about that it scares Millie. She tries to make sure High knows this, that Valenzuela is counting on him flying off the handle, but it's Shirleen that finally gets through to him. High decides to do things the right way but Hound is determined to get retribution. Things end with High proposing to Millie, the four of them buying a new house, and all of them enjoying Paris together.

Review: Thief

Thief Thief by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Somehow I missed the release of Thief, the final book in the Love Me with Lies series. Thief is not quite as emotionally draining as the two previous books, but still an awesome series ender. Caleb and Olivia must have some kind of love because after all they have been through, the lies, betrayal etc. they still can't stay away from each other. Leah, psycho redhead ex, tries to pull another fast one, but she meets her match this time.

Review: Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope Kaleidoscope by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I seriously love Kristen Ashley, and always love everything she writes. Kaleidoscope is no different, and therein lies the problem. It's not a big problem, definitely not a problem that would keep me from reading anything she writes, down to and possibly including her grocery list. Although all of her books feature different characters, most of the hot & uber-alphas are interchangeable. They're protective, over the top, bossy, and their one-word expressions are all very similar. I like the way they talk and don't want that to change, I just wish there were more distinction between them. Like I said, a very small annoyance that I may have never paid much attention to if it hadn't been pointed out.
