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?
The story was very intriguing, filled with action, captivating drama that grabbed me. I especially loved the messages at the beginning of each chapter that let me deeper into Rex’s and Mac’s thoughts and pasts.
The characters were vastly interesting characters that drew me in with their personalities. The fighting strength of Mac and the intensity and strength of Rex.
The drama that Rex and Mac had to face with their pasts and present was harsh and sad and had me feeling so much and I hoped that they would find a way through it. I was very happy that they ultimately found happiness and peace with the love that they found in each other. In the end I ended up loving Fighting to Forget by J. B. Salsbury and look forward to reading more.
