First Thoughts when Finished: Walk through Fire indeed! The first 1/3 of this book I was unsure how I was going to feel about this story/couple/drama but then BAM the FEELS!
Quick Thoughts: Walk Through Fire is probably the book that shows my relationship to Kristen Ashley’s books: sometimes I love them, sometimes I cry, sometimes I am not sure if I can finish them because the characters are beyond annoying. The first 1/3 of this book I thought it was going to be 2 40+ year olds being overly dramatic, downright a**hat (Logan), and just angry sex. I set the book down for 2 weeks because I just couldn’t! Logan was an A** and pretty much not a forgivable one. It really took a bit for me to warm up to him even after the “moments” that made me cry. However, those moments really show what I love about Kristen Ashley’s writing. She made me cry 3 times in a matter of 15% and that was with 2 people I wasn’t even really rooting for. I could guess early why their old relationship failed but hearing it actually come out–heartbreaking. Then Kristen Ashley did something even better–she made me happy. I have this complaint in her series where almost every ex-wife/baby mama is a B*tch. Maybe it is a trigger for me (I have an awesome stepmom and mom) but it ruined more than one story for me by her. She didn’t do this here and it ROCKED! In fact, I think she really displayed what many in America deal with during an adjustment to new relationships with parents, step-parents, and what kids go through. So while this might not be the highest book I have rated by her, it will be favorite for the last 2/3 alone. I had all the feels and happiness! Though honestly the overall story arch didn’t move forward much and Tack being all bossy over his men and their actions with ladies is old. Really didn’t like his interactions the last 30 or so pages cause really that is going to happen whether he says no to it or not. Nope not sharing what is going to happen–you will have to read and see if you agree!
I totally recommend this book and series. I know I am not a huge fan of bikers but these guys while OC are not bad guys. That distinction means a LOT to me.
