Blog Tour: Fighting to Forget by JB Salsbury


~ Synopsis ~

Every fighter is drawn to the violence, the release that a perfect hit can bring. But very few are drawn to the pain. Rex Carter lives behind a wall of indifference. The demons from his childhood act as an anesthetic, keeping him distant from emotional connections. Only the ache from a knock to the jaw, the sting of a tattoo needle, or the heat from a piercing can jolt him back from the numbness. The fiery pain is all he can feel, and nothing compares to the burn. Or so he thought. Working in a Las Vegas bar isn't Georgia McIntyre's dream. But she hopes it'll be an end to the nightmare. She's watched him, followed him and kept tabs, all in preparation for this moment: to make amends and share the secret she’s been carrying since she was a kid. But she didn't count on the feelings that seeing him again would stir up, the vacant look in his stormy-blue eyes, and his perfect body now mutilated by ink and metal. And she knows why. She's lived his pain every single day, since the day he left. Changed by time, Rex doesn't remember the girl from his past. If only she could do the same. Will she get the absolution she's spent her life seeking? Or will he continue Fighting to Forget?


~ Review ~
4 Stars

This was a good book.  It definitely wasn't my favorite out of the series.  I knew it was going to be hard for Rex to take over my love for Blake.  Blake is still my fav :)

Mac AKA Gia, has had a very hard life.  She has been through things most wouldn't have come out of alive.  She proved she was strong and had fight in her.  She is in Vegas checking on Rex.  She needs to know that he's ok.  She never expected her feelings to turn into love.  She is scared t get close to him and tell her secret, but she needs too.  What will Rex do once he finds out?

Rex was suppose to be a HOT, SEXY MMA fighter, but I couldn't see that through all his pain.  All I could feel for him was sorry.  He had a terrible childhood.  Something no kid should ever have to live through.  He is surviving, but not as well as people think.  He doesn't remember a lot that happened in his childhood, just dreams that he can pretend isn't his brains way of helping him remember.  Once Mac walks into his life things start to slowly change for him.  He is opening up and stepping out of his comfort zone.  That is until her secret comes out.  What will he do?

I really needed more out of this book. Mac starts off so strong, but them turns weak.  To me I needed her to stay strong.  She gave up and sat down and felt sorry for herself and that isn't like her.  So her character bothered me a little.  Rex needed something more.  I don't mind feeling sorry about characters and what their lives have been, but I was expecting him to rock my world like Jonah and Blake did.

This is an amazing series.  I cannot wait for the next book.  I definitely recommend this whole series to everyone!!
