___________________________________________
Everyones got an endless capacity for love which means everyones got a shot at receiving an endless supply of love. don't matter who you give it to or receive it from. just matters you have a heart big enough and a heart open enough to give it back." (...or something like that) 
-Logan Chap 19
___________________________________________



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 . . .

MY THOUGHTS
1000% of me is a lot of bit ashamed to admit that i read this. erm, listened to it. 
BUT I HAVE SEVERAL GOOD EXPLANATIONS!!!

1) i was on GoodReads and one click led to another that lead to another and well, i found a book blog of a lady who is into these kinds of reads. 
what kind you ask? 
typical macho man, ride or die dude, sex in every scene, more cursing than I'm used to and i can prooobably out curse a sailor...type of book. the kind with the corny ass cover that you look at and you're like, THANK GOD kindles and nooks exist because I'd never be caught dead with this out in real life. (no? just me?) 

2) her review of this book was SO FUCKING FUNNY (i wish i could link it but i would never do that and 2 i can't even remember the website). 

first, she said that while the sex scenes turned her on and made her lady bits tingle to the point of no return (i died laughing!!!!) she said the book was so fucking long that by the time she was done, her husband had no chance of reviving that dried up pond. 

3) then some other reader left a comment about how what Mollie did for Logan was probably the best, most unselfish thing you could ever do for another human being. 

so then, of course, i was like...what is it!!!!????? 

i asked around, begged, looked and googled AND NO ONE WOULD ANSWER ME!!!!
(see, this is why i do spoilers after the jump. some people just want to know! don't be a dick and tell them!!!) 

so, i saw that for my nook, it was on sale for $5.99. not bad but i wasn't down. 
the library had a copy but then i found some bad reviews and i was like....uhm, no, so i pulled my request. 
THEN i saw that they had an audio copy and i thought "how perfect!!!!'" i love listening to music but i needed a break so i gave it a go. 

and fuuuuuuuckkk!!!!!!
this book is cornier that the cornball machine that burns your soul on Arrested Development. 

let me start by saying this: 
I LOVE CHICK LIT!!!
I LOVE LOVE STORIES!
THE CORNIER THE BETTER!!!!!!!

but this was on another level. 
I'm not used to this kind of writing. 
so this isn't a diss on the book, or the writing, or author or anyone who likes to read this material. I'm just simply stating that it wasn't for me. 

I JUST WANTED TO KNOW WTF MILLIE DID FOR LOGAN THAT WOULD CAUSE HER TO BE IN PAIN AND SINGLE FOR 20 FUCKEN YEARS!!!!!! AND LEAD LOGAN TO CALL MILLIE A BITCH AND DEGRADE HER EVERY CHANCE HE COULD....before he found out.

and then i found out.
and while some might praise it as the most amazing thing ever, uhm, no. 
it was selfish, and she thought on her own accord and didn't even take into consideration what Logan could have done for her. or how they could have sailed that situation together.

later on, it becomes clear that her leaving Logan paid off cause i guess he learned how to become a domesticated man in a way. which she didn't have before. so i mean i guuuesssssssssssssss BUT STILL!!!!!

THEN, and i think it's for the sole purpose of just stringing you along and opening up a gateway to book #5 or whatever the fuck, they bring in a drug lord. like, THE BIGGEST EVER!!!!
so big that these macho men thug life bikers (makes no sense) partner up with cops (!!!....that they hated not even 20 years ago) to try and catch him. 

he literally makes an appearance early on in the book and then doesn't come back until chapter twenty-fucking-three!!!! (in the audio book there's 24 chapters and an epilogue) and even then NOTHING HAPPENS. 

literally, this book could have been over after like they reconciled. 
yea they do. 
spoiler. 

and Logan's kids, the little one, Saidee or however you spell it (i think that was her name) what a little bitch!!!!!
UGH!!!!
she bugged the shit out of me. 

overall, it was a read ONLY because i wanted to know wtf Millie did. and once i did, i was ready to give up listening to this book. 
then i don't know what happened but i kept going and by chapter 19 i was forcing myself with the thought that "hey!, only 5 more chapters." 

basically by the end, i still didn't know who was who other than Millie and Logan and the drug dealer.  other than that, all other characters were lost on me. 

it's over with. 
when someone asks you to spoil something for them, don't be a dick. 
like Nike, JUST DO IT (woah!!! lame dad joke!) 

2017 has been a shitty year for books for me i think, I've only really loved one and well, all others at least the last few, have left me blegh. 
at least i just found out there's about300 audio books that i can check out right away and i found a couple so hay!!!

what did Millie do? 
jump on over. 
quickest spoiler I've ever done. 

PS: Chipotle should've sponsored this book. 

thanks for reading!

SPOILERS

Millie met Logan at 18. by 5 weeks (or months but probably weeks) they moved in together. 
close to her college graduation, they were trying to have kids. 
she finds out she cant, doesn't tell Logan so she leaves him. 

she leaves him so he can go have kids else where. 

that's fucking it. 
not because she, i don't even know what i was thinking but that was it. 

which i think, if you EVER happen to find that kind of love, why would you make a rash ass decision like that? 
isn't that something you talk through. 

anyway. that's it. 
there's more stuff but i couldn't tell you even if i tried. 

k thx byee.
