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?
I do want to say that I absolutely loved the first 2 books of this series and was certain that I would be able to rate Fighting to Forget just as I did the first two but for some reason there was something lacking in this book.
In general, I thought that the story was fair. There were parts – especially the unexpected twist in the end that were terrific but there were elements that remained unsettling and some that were somewhat unconvincing.
” It’s not about deserving. It’s about fate. I was put on this earth to love you. Deep down to the core of my soul I’ve always known it. There may be someone else for you, but you’ve always been it for me.”
My primary concern though was the couples’ relationship. The words were there but I still struggled to feel this deep connection that the couple proclaimed.
I did however appreciate how involved the previous couples were in Rex and Gia’s relationship and how afterall they’ve been through that they still managed to get their much deserved happy ending.
