There once was a boy, and I loved him.

Logan Francis Silverstone was the complete opposite of me. I danced while he stood still. He was quiet, and I was always running my mouth. He struggled to find a smile while I refused to frown.

The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn’t look away.

We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.

Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision—a decision that changed us forever.

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.


Book #2 in the Romance Elements Series.

Complete standalone.


— 4,5 stars —


“The fire between High & Lo” is the story of Alyssa and Logan. They have met as teenagers and were complete opposites on the surface. But maybe exactly that made them stick to each other in every hard and happy situation of their lives. When a life-changing misunderstanding tears them apart and only another one brings them back together, can they finally become who they truly want to be with each other?

This is definitely a hard review for me to write. First off, I loved the book! I really did, most of all the main characters were amazing. But I had the feeling, that something was missing – and it almost cost me my sanity, thinking about what that something was since finishing this story. Finally, I came to the conclusion, that it was a bit of disappointment because the first book in this series, “The air he breathes” literally blew me away. I was so deeply touched by it, that I was already preparing to empty another tissue box with “The fire between High & Lo”, and the story definitely made me sniffle a few times, but the big tears never came. I think, I can even explain why. So, despite this being a beautiful story about family, friends, making sacrifices, second chances and forgiving – I was missing the love!!! There was so much happening in this story, that I sometimes felt that the secondary characters were more important in this story than the actual main characters were. On one side, I understood the importance of it and I definitely felt for each individual character but the few romantic scenes in this book were not enough for me. It felt like the romance always had a second-row seat, but for me a romance has to focus on just that – the love! So, very sad to say this, because I was so enamored with all the characters, the love-story felt rushed, forced and to be the most unimportant factor of all. And that can ruin a book for me.

Aside from that, I’ll try to rate the story as neutral as possible, despite my disappointment about the romance aspect. The writing was just as amazing as in the first book, the few sex-scenes there were, were tender and not overly explicit and the character development was really good.

All in all, I rate “The fire between High & Lo” with 4,5 stars and can recommend it. Standalone with HEA, readers 18+ due to sexual scenes, language, drug use and violence.
