What do you do when everything you avoid, turns out to be exactly what you need?

Easy and predictable, just the way he likes it, Blake Daniels flies through life the way he burns through women: on his terms, no regrets.

With his fighting career in full swing, he's on the threshold of title contention. But when his training is compromised by injury, the stakes grow impossibly higher. The rage that fuels his punches also chips away at his focus, and he risks losing everything he cares about.

He won’t let that happen. Not again.

Layla’s through with men. After a marriage that never should’ve happened, she hopes to reclaim the pieces of the woman she lost years ago.

Emotional abuse has left her insecure and terrified. A master at faking what she’s not feeling, she masks her self-doubt in false confidence.

She’ll never let another man hurt her. Not again.

Chased by shadows of the past, Blake and Layla know what they don’t want, but their hearts have a different plan. As a web of lies and betrayal threatens to destroy them, they’re forced to make a choice.

Is love enough to heal even the deepest wounds?

Or will they be left Fighting to Forgive?

Kristen’s Review:

Fighting to Forgive is the second book in the Fighting Series by J.B. Salsbury. I have an obsession with MMA themed books and devoured the first book in one sitting.Fighting to Forgive was no different. This story is about Blake Daniels and Layla Moorehead. We met Blake in Fighting for Flight. His foul mouth and easy way with the ladies had me itchin’ to get my hands on his story. 

I can not tell you how much I fucking love Blake! He is who he is and he does not give one shit what anyone thinks. Blake is broken. He knows it and he knows why. Your heart will break for him when you read what he went through. SERIOUSLY BREAK! Blake is training for the biggest fight of his career when he meets Layla Moorehead. He makes assumptions about her and mistakes her for a ring girl.

Layla Moorehead and her daughter are in a new city after escaping a seriously fucked up marriage. Kid you not. Fucked up! You will not believe what she endured. Straight up crazy town. Just like Blake she makes assumptions about him. Some true. Some not. Like me I’m sure most of you are tired of whiney, annoying female leads in stories. Believe me when I say Layla is not. Yes she has issues. But she is very real. She deals the best she can with the cards life has dealt her and puts everyone’s needs before her own.

The chemistry and banter between these two is perfect. You will be rooting for them all the way. Once these two tortured souls come together it’s pure fireworks. Blake is so damn sexy. I couldn’t get enough of him!

Following the same theme as the first book in this series some serious shit goes down in the last half of the book. Prepare yourself. I usually can figure out how things will play out but I found myself a bit surprised with a few things. If you enjoyed the first book in this series do not miss out on Blake’s book. I have to say I think this one was even better! 

* This book could be read as a stand alone. But as always it’s a series people! Read em’ all!
