There once was a boy, and I loved him.
Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and 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.
I’d been excited for The Fire Between High & Lo to come out in audio after listening to The Air He Breathes, and I was hoping to get the same narrators, but the two narrators for The Fire Between High & Lo turned out even BETTER than those in the previous book! I absolutely LOVED listening to Graham Halstead and Emily Woo Zeller – they voiced and embodied Logan and Alyssa perfectly. I really hope they narrate more books together, they were that amazing.
The story of Logan and Alyssa though… I didn’t love quite as much as the narration. We begin the story with them as teenagers and becoming best friends, and then eventually something more – this was definitely my favorite part of the story. The connection and deep friendship between them warmed my heart, especially since even though they’re both a little broken, when they’re together, nothing can bring them down. And the slow burning romance that develops makes everything even better. These were two characters I couldn’t help but root for a HEA, or at least SOME happiness, because they both deserved it.
Then tragedy strikes, because the hand they’ve already been dealt with isn’t bad enough. My heart broke for both Alyssa and Logan, but at the same time, I didn’t like the way they handled the tragedy, Logan especially. He becomes someone a little bit despicable, so he ruined the story for me. Alyssa becomes a doormat, unfortunately, so things quickly go downhill in the second half of the story.
The Fire Between High & Lo had such promise, especially with the fantastic narrators – I’d give them a 5 star rating alone. But the story just didn’t work out for me, but I’m sure I’m in the minority for this. If you loved either one of the Elements books, then I highly recommend you give the audiobook of The Fire Between High & Lo a try, because I have a feeling you’ll love it. The story wasn’t for me, but the narration was – I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more audiobooks narrated by Graham Halstead and Emily Woo Zeller!

Great review. I’m sorry it didn’t quite work for you. Sounds like the narration was what worked the best, if I’m reading between the lines of your review. I’ve never read any of her books, although I have them all. So many books, so little time. 🙂
Yeah, the narration was what save this from being a complete flop. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it whenever you get to it!
Great review . I love this book . She is a great writer .
Thanks for the review! I have never read anything by the author but this sounds like a book I would like.
You’re welcome! ❤
I don’t know how I feel about this one! Added to my tbr.
LOL I’m definitely in the minority on how I felt about the story, so you might enjoy it much more!
I just recently read this and loved it! It’s always interesting to see different people’s opinions on books. You never know whether you’ll like a story until you read it yourself.
Glad you enjoyed it! And I totally agree with you!
Getting hit after hit in life is no easy thing; to stay who you are, to not let those things turn you into someone despicable. Just hearing that was enough to make me think I wouldn’t like this one. But I will have to check out the narrators on another story!
Exactly!! It’s always so disappointing when a character turns into an ass rather than changing something about their lives.
