Ohh, I was so nervous to start this book. It seemed like it may be overly angsty, and I do not do overly angsty very well.
But then we all know I LOVE a lovers reunited second chance romance.
So, Mille and Logan had been in love, and not just in love but IN LOVE. They were each others one. When Millie, out of the blue ended it, and in such a way to almost destroy Logan and make him think the 3 years they had had together had been a lie.
So when Millie goes to Logan, after 20 years deciding it is time to move on and explain her reasons, Logan, and his “brothers” do not react well. And while some may have issues with this, and yes he was an ass, as were Chaos, it was understandable. Chaos had seen what it had done to High, the self destructive path he went on, and at the time did not care who he dragged along with him. But you felt for both High and Millie, and the first 40% was heart wrenching and heart breaking but oh so worth it once High found out just how much Millie had given up for him.
Now, I have heard some rumblings about the reasons Millie having left High not being good enough, but I went trough something similar myself, at an older more mature age, and still, it almost destroyed my marriage. I can totally see Millie, given all her and High had spent 3 years discussing and wanting, being totally unable to cope and know how to deal with it at her age and doing what she did.
And while she did not move on relationship wise, she moved on in life, she had grown and matured, had a very successful business, a house she had worked on herself, but I can see her not being in a relationship, given why she forced High to walk away, her not starting a new relationship, given what she saw as her lack makes sense.
I did get to say 40% and think, you know at this point, most authors would end the story, they are back together, surely that is all that there is, off they ride into the sunset….but this is KA, so we know she like to give us more. And more she did, and while the second half was not as much of an emotional roller coaster as the first half, I still loved it. It was them settling into life, the problems that can face families in that way.
Oh, and the huge PLUS – Logan’s ex was actually cool. No horrible psycho ex!
Plus we have the storyline ARC that has been through all the Chaos series. And this is maybe why it is 4 stars and not 5. Seems like Chaos and the bad guy have spent the entire chaos series pushing each other back and forth and not much happening. Threats here and there, and I kind of forgot exactly what had happened in previous books and my worry here is that will all come to a head in the last chaos book, and quite frankly overshadow the romance, as this storyline ARC is building and building, and it has to explode, as opposed to just petering out. But I kind of just wish it would get done.
But, I still loved reading Millie and Logan’s story and cannot wait for more from this series.
