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

Fighting to Forget is the third book in the ‘Fighting’ series by J.B. Salsbury. It is a beautiful and heart wrenching story. I laughed, I cried, i went through varying emotions. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put this one down.

For any fans of "fighter" heroes, this is a book you should definitely check out! It's a second chance story between a tattooed, pierced fighter with a heart wrenching past he couldn't remember and a girl from his past who couldn't forget him and was holding onto a secret that could change his life.

The dedication of the book says it all:

"To every child who waited for a savior that never came."

The story started off with a prologue that set up their past. When th

Fighting to Forget is one of the most emotionally painful book in this series so far. Who am I kidding? All the JB Salsbury books are emotional and painful, but this one, this one was different. To me it's because of what Gia and Rex dealt with as kids. This also one of the hardest book to review.

Mac is on one mission, and one mission only, to protect Rex. She's known as Mac now but she's actually Gia.

So this is going be a tough Review for me...I loved so much in this book, but I had one character that may have downgraded the whole experience for me!

I will start by saying the Rex is by far, my favorite male lead of this series.

From the OCD to the painful adrenalin rushes he needed to survive, I was fascinated with him. Hell, the prologue alone set my head in 5 star rating land! His absent memories, his pain, his red haired/grey eyed angel...all just made for one hell of a journe

This book is in dedication to you...♡♥

Wow, just wow. J.B. Salsbury definitely is at her best in the latest book in the Fighting series, Fighting to Forget, as Rex and Gia’s story was something I did not expect.


I won’t go a whole lot into the plot as I don’t want to spoil the impact of the story but I will divulge that this book covers themes ranging from: abuse, sex, helplessness, despair, love, vengeance, forgiveness, and coming to a
This book was an intense read. This played with my emotions in so many different ways. First off, I have to mention that I hold a lot of respect for J.B. Salsbury for tackling some very hard topics within this series. In "Fighting To Forget" we are shown the emotional torment that is experienced by the hero and heroine. Rex Carter and Georgia McIntyre share a past that is both horrific and traumatizing. In fact, the trauma that Rex went through as a little boy, is so bad that his brain has block ...more

Rex and Gia knew each other in their childhood. Years later, Gia has a new identity, Mac. When they are reunited, has Rex forgotten Mac completely?

I loved the prologue. I loved the first two books and I love seeing Blake and Jonah with their HEA.

This was my least favourite of the series. To begin with, I was a bit bored. There was good sexual tension but Mac's secret dragged on too long. I hate the turn of events at 68%. I was on the verge of angry tears and almost dnf.
