My Review…..

5 STARS

This book right here….WOW! At first, I was not sure how I would feel about this story…
I have only read one other Chaos book, and that was Joker’s story…which I loved…so when I saw this one was available for and ARC request I was all over it…
And I was not disappointed!

Millie and Logan “High” Judd first meet when they are younger…She is 18, he is 21. It’s love at first site, and they have 3 years together before SHE forces him to leave…and HE never comes back (Side note….I think, he could have fought a little harder for her then, and the 20 years apart would not have happened, but ehh, MEN!)

I immediately loved Millie, and my heart broke for her and the choice she made yet my mind wanted me to yell at her and tell her she was stupid and that their love COULD and WOULD keep them together…But Millie, in her mind, wanted to give Logan what she thought he wanted and needed, and it was something she could not give him.

20 years later, Millie see’s him at Chipolte and decides she finally needs closure. She decides to seek him out at places she knew from their past.
Now, I love Logan…but I did not love how he treated her when they are first reunited. I could have totally done without the degrading words and treatment BUT at the same time, I get why he was doing it..


“Now maybe
I did not mean to treat you bad
But I did it anyway
And now maybe
Some would say your life was sad
But you lived it anyway
And so maybe
Your friends they stand around they watch your crumble
As you falter to the ground
And then someday
Your friends they stand beside as you were flyin’
Oh you were flyin’ oh so high

But then someday people look at you for what they call their own
They watch you suffer
Yeah they hear you calling home
But then some day we could take our time
To brush the leaves aside so you can reach us
But you left me far behind

Now maybe
I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now I said maybe some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain
No, no, no
Couldn’t share the pain, they watch you suffer

Now maybe I could have made my own mistakes
But I live with what I’ve known
And then maybe we might share in something great
But won’t you look at where we’ve grown
Won’t you look at where we’ve gone
But then someday comes tomorrow holds
a sense of what I fear for you in my mind
As you trip the final line
And that cold day when you lost control
It’s a shame you left my life so soon you should have told me
But you left me far behind, yeah
Now maybe I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain

Now maybe I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain
I said times have changed your friends
They come and watch you crumble to the ground
They watch you suffer
Yeah, they hold you down
Hold on down
Now maybe lover, maybe love
I didn’t mean to treat you bad
But you left me far behind
Left me far behind”

Logan finally snaps out of his revenge mindset and they are truly reunited and MAN was I happy about that!!
 
Two chapter’s in this book are titled Far Behind (^^lyrics above^^ and Hole in My Sole….and BAM! There’s the song’s stuck in my head….


“There’s a Hole In My Soul
That’s been killing me forever
It’s a place where a garden never grows
There’s a Hole In My Soul
Yeah, I should have known better
Cause your love’s like a thorn without a rose”
