Fighting to Forget (Fighting, #3) by JB Salsbury

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?

4.5 Messed-up Lovin’ stars

Two messed up people falling in love…

Rex and Mac are foster brother and sister. Rex was abused during foster care and when he was ten, he left the home.

14 years later, Mac finds Rex and kind of stalks him. She wants to approach him and tell him about her, but she hasn’t found the courage and has been watching him a far. When Mac and Rex finally meet up, Mac still finds it’s difficult to explain their pasts and forges a unique relationship.


Rex is SUPER MESSED UP. I love damaged Heroes and what happened to him was just all around sad. Because of his past abuse, he of course doesn’t have normal sexual relationships with women. He’s never been in a relationship and he can’t fight his inner demons.


Mac is the girl who loves afar, and it’s a really cute and sad story line. She loves Rex because they have this close childhood relationship, but she doesn’t know how to talk to him years later. Mac frustrated me at times because I kept on screaming in the book for her to talk to Rex and tell him everything. I’m not a big fan of lies and secrets in books.


I really liked the style of writing. I liked the intro, where we get a little glimpse of Rex and Mac younger, but there were no flashbacks, which I loved.

Then Mac slowly tries to get to know Rex and it was super adorable reading those parts because it’s just cute tension. When things start to heat up and we get closer to the climatic ending, all H breaks loose and the read goes kind of crazy. You go into a roller coaster of emotions. A lot is revealed and I was enjoying every step of it.

There was never a dull moment.

I got to meet JB Salsbury at RT Convention in Dallas and it was my first time. She's so gorgeous, sweet and I could tell she had so much passion for her series. I told her I was an audio fan and I was excited about her series in audio. She said she loved picking her narrators and I loved that she was a part of that process. More book signing photos - HERE
