Overview

What happens when in order to win, you're forced to lose?

The only daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp, Raven Morretti grew up an outsider. Liberated from the neglectful home of her prostitute mother, she finds solace as a mechanic. With few friends, she's content with the simple life. Flying under the radar is all she knows and more than she expects.

Until she catches the eye of local celebrity, UFL playboy, Jonah Slade.

Weeks away from his title fight, Jonah is determined to stay focused on everything he's trained so hard to achieve. Undefeated in the octagon, he's at the height of his career. But resisting Raven's effortless allure and uncomplicated nature is a fight he can't win.

Jonah trades in his bad-boy reputation and puts his heart on the line. But when her father contacts her, setting in motion the ugly truth of her destiny, Jonah must choose. In a high-stakes gamble where love and freedom hang in the balance, a war is waged where the price of losing is a fate worse than death.

Will the hotheaded Jonah be able to restrain his inner fighter to save the woman he loves?

Or will Raven be forced into a life she's been desperate to avoid?

    Wow Amazing! I have been in a string of several mediocre books,

    Wow Amazing! I have been in a string of several mediocre books, and this was just the saving grace I needed. Fight for Flight was a truly incredible story packed full of emotion and intensity. Raven and Jonah are two very different people with drastically different backgrounds, but this just may prove to be everything they need to be perfect for one another. Jonah years have been spent keeping things light and easy. Determined to never open his heart up to the chance of loss; he has made quite a reputation for himself. After the loss of his Father Jonah barricaded himself behind his brick walls of independence that will protect his heart. Raven, is like nothing we have seen. Truly a unique character, she is a mechanic that just happens to fall in Jonah’s lap for his latest restoration. Only from the start these two characters are drawn to each other like moths to a flame, and I was easily absorbed into their story. I must comment on how nice it was to have a romance that was not your usual “I Love Him, I Love Him Not” scenario; from the first obstacle Raven is an open book for Jonah. Misunderstandings are overcome easily by these high functioning characters that think it through logically. Further supporting my love of these characters originality they are honest, trustworthy, and true reflection of love; whatever they have to overcome is done together. This alones takes this story to a much higher level than lust and attraction; forming the deep seeded bonds of love and dedication from fans. I see Jonah and Raven start out this story as two buds, and as the story progresses they bloom to the most vibrant and beautiful blossoms that I have ever seen. With the perfect mixture of action and emotion this will story will suck in board range of fans, and hold them on the edge of their seats. I know I say this all the time, but I absolutely cannot wait for book two. This next story will actually shift and follow Blake’s story; that might add I have fallen in love with over this story with the help of Raven. I don’t like to prematurely label books and authors, and with this being my first experience with this author I cannot certainty prediction, so let’s just say if the next is half as good as this book it will be amazing. If her first novel can be such an incredible masterpiece it will be a treat to read anything more she has to offer. This debuting MMA Series will be one of the BookWhisperer’s followed series, and be on the lookout for more details of upcoming books here. In complete honesty, this debuting novel was the probably top five books that I have read this year; definitely worth your time and money. BOOKWHISPERER FAVORITE!! ~BookWhisperer Reviewer JO~

    Finally!!!!!!!

    I have read so many books where the heroine annoys me, but Raven was the heroine that finally switched it up. This book was like a breath of fresh air, different from any other book I had up until that point.

    I love Jonah and Raven, but the other characters are the ones I fell in love with immediately after their introduction. A great read, a refreshing story, with all the right elements.

    I was thorughly impressed with this book. It has just about ever

    I was thorughly impressed with this book. It has just about everything I could want in a book. Hot fighter, funny (but crude) best friend, independent female lead (the daughter of a pimp and a hooker) with a smart best friend. All the main characters seem to have some sort of issues with their fathers. All a direct result of who they are as adults. All logical and realistic. I know this is fiction, but in order for a reader to get absorbed into a story the characters have to seem real. I was hooked, lost track of time and felt like I was in a lot of the scenes. Kudos for pulling readers in. In addition to the pimp and hooker, there's a professional fight, a beat down, a kidnapping, a bet, deception, murder/homocide, rescues - both human and feline, a whole lot of love, and heaven forbid we forget about the strippers. This is Vegas after all! Jonah and Raven's love is nearly immediate. The story is very fast paced and takes place in an extremely small window of time, but the story never felt rushed and I never even rolled my eyes. OK, a very small eye roll when the virginity issue was put on the table - BUT she was strong and put it on the table. Laid the cards out as if to say 'This is me - take it or leave it!' I admired Raven so much for doing something so bold. The only thing that I would have liked that we didn't get was an actual conversation between Raven and her mom when previous issues regarding Raven's upbringing were resolved. I felt a little cheated that was missing and I was to infer the actual reasons why. I was expecting the book to end on some type of cliff since there's a 2nd book, and was delighted to find the story complete and the next book to be about other characters as leads. I loved the fact that I was kept on my toes and the way the HEA actually played out. If you're on the fence, pick it up and give it a try. I hope that you love it as much as I did. I'm really looking forward to the next book (which is about Blake).

    It was an okay book. It was a little to much " i live you after a day and nothing else matters" to me. It came across very unbelievabke and unrealistic. I would have liked it more if it werent so predictable

    Definitely worth a re-read!

    This book blew me away! And to think I stumbled upon it by accident. This book had everything and carried through with the story at just the right pace. I loved the heroine in this book too...so strong and independent. Plus, she was a badass! I'll definitely be re-reading this one for years to come.

    The villan part of the story was very,very off putting. It ruined the book for me. Plus the dumbness of the hero regarding the villan caused much eyerolling. It was just so unrealistic that he would trust the man to keep his word. So much of the villan's character was not believable. Book was disappointing. Rushed to finished it.

    4.5 Stars from Sara!

    So...wow. As an avid reader, I just love when you read a book by a new, unknown author that just blows you away. This book so totally did. It has great characters, a great plot; the writing is great and flows well. This genre just does not get any better than this.

    This is the story of Raven, who is just quirky and adorable. She smart, funny and loyal, yet she has a sad and dark past. She’s also a car mechanic… is awesome. You really can't help but just fall in love with her character from the get go. Our hero, Jonah, is all alpha, and let me tell you, he is tasty. Personally, I think there are very few authors that can pull off an alpha male well. Most of the time, they seem psycho to me...controlling to the point of being abusive. There's a very fine line there, and this author manages to toe the line and do it well. He's protective yet loving, is a strong, tough fighter but is a total marshmallow when it comes to Raven. He's perfect. You never doubt his motives or his love of Raven.

    Another great thing about this story is the plot. It really goes beyond your normal boy-meet-girl romance. There's none of those silly and easy solvable misunderstandings between characters that drive them apart. They fall for each other, fall hard and face what comes their way together. That's rare in this genre and I really liked it. And let me tell you, the suspense of the last 20% of this book is awesome. I could not put it down.

    Do yourself a favor and buy this book! It has it all: suspense, love, steamy sex and great characters! I will eagerly be waiting for the next book in this series! A definite 4.5 stars for me!
