Overview

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?

Well, frick me! If I thought Fighting for Flight nearly killed me with it's emotional roller coaster and total heartache, Fight to Forgive nearly wrecked me beyond repair. Sweet baby bullfrogs, I still feel like I can't breathe.
JB Salsbury destroyed me with so much hope and beauty. The ending was amazing and everything I could have ever hoped for. One of the few books where the epilogue outshines the story, which was fantastic in it's own right.

JB Salsbury can write one hell of a hot MMA book! I ate this book up in one day and even had to set an alarm to make sure I remembered to pick my kids up from school, it was HARD to put down!
http://thedanishbookaholic.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/fighting-to-forgive-by-j-b-salsbury/ - The Danish Bookaholic The Danish Bookaholic
The story never seems rushed or forced in any way and I devoured every single page. I found myself reading it so fast that I had to make myself slow down, lest I missed something important in my eagerness. And THAT, my ladies, is the talent of a true storyteller in my world: to make the adrenaline course through your veins, to make the reader inaccessible to the real world because of the story. So, Miss Salsbury: THANK YOU!

Meet the Author

New York Times Bestselling author of the Fighting series, J.B. Salsbury, lives in Arizona with her husband and two kids. She spends the majority of her day as a domestic engineer. But while she works through her daily chores, a world of battling alphas, budding romance, and impossible obstacles claws away at her subconscious, begging to be released to the page.

Her love of good storytelling led her to earn a degree in Media Communications. With her journalistic background, writing has always been at the forefront, and her love of romance prompted her to sink her free time into novel writing.

Fighting for Flight, Fighting to Forgive, and Fighting to Forget are the first three novels in the MMA romance series. Fighting the Fall is due to be released in October 2014.

    This book is about how a man and a woman overcome there terrible

    This book is about how a man and a woman overcome there terrible pasts in order to find real happiness. Layla's life ended when she was 16. She went to a party, got drunk, and got pregnant. Perhaps the saddest part about that is that she doesn't remember how she ended up in bed with her now husband. She came from an old fashioned family who insisted that rather than being a disgrace to them as a single mom, she would marry the father of her child. He was still in high school as well, but after his parents convinced him to do the right thing, they were married. Sixteen years later, Layla has left her husband with their daughter and is trying to start a new life for them. She bares emotional and physical scars that she is trying to hide from the world, but Blake just won't let her be. It goes against all of his rules to be attracted to or even attempt to sleep with a mother. However he cannot deny this strange attraction he has towards Layla. She brings out the worst and best in him (as far as he is concerned). She forces him to remember how terrible his father treated his mother as well as the emotional abuse that led him into the fighting ring. As a mixed martial artist, he fights to forget and overcome the abuse he went through as a child, but the more he learns about Layla, the more he has to face the past in order to have a future.

    I loved this book. I literally read it in 24 hours because I just had to know exactly what had happened to Layla and how Blake would react. Some people can write stories about traumatic events and make them feel believable. Then there are people who can take those believable events and make you think that it really truly happened. It's like reading a diary of two people with the exact dialog included. The characters are more than characters, they become real people to you. It was wonderfully written. I will say, it does include information not meant for the younger crowd. The situations describe really do happen to some people and you may not want your teenager reading about them. On the other hand, you might want them to so they can be educated to try to avoid being put in these situations later in their life. Up to you.

    I have found a new love for MMA fighter books. I fell hard for

    I have found a new love for MMA fighter books. I fell hard for Blake “The Snake” Daniel in Fighting for Flight with his witty banter. The bad boy with a good heart totally had me from his first act of kindness to his last. To describe Blake and Layla’s first introduction as love at first sight would not be correct but lust? Now you are on the right track. From the first introduction I was giggling like a school girl.
    “Layla Moorehead.”
    “…That’s the best name for a chick I’ve ever heard.”
    Blake had me in stitches with his clever comebacks and that Layla dished it right back was a tennis match I loved to watch. Layla switched the game for Blake. He lived by a set of rules but she came into his life and made him break each and every one of them without lifting a finger.
    This book is based on forgiveness. Forgiveness is something I have learned is what you give yourself not to others. Blake and Layla have issues in their pasts that have brought them to a place of forgiveness. Choosing to forgive is the bravest and most courageous thing they can do if they choose it for themselves. Blake’s being a MMA fighter allows him to physically fight but the internal demons he fights leave him alone. Layla comes across as a shell of a woman with no fight left in her but she will sacrifice everything for the ones she loves.
    “…everyone needs someone fighting in their corner…”
    The love scenes were HOT! I am used to being able to anticipate what comes next when it comes to love scenes. These are descriptive but not trashy, intimate without mushy and kept me on my toes. I devoured the words like eating the most delicious dessert on the menu. Um, waiter I’ll take one of everything...to go! ...Check please! The storyline of a fighter and woman under duress is not a new one but the conflict and her “issue” is new to me. I didn’t anticipate it nor was it even on my radar. I was feeling anxious as I read each scene as they hinted to the “issue” but was completely blindsided once it was revealed. I was scared for her and for how Blake would react. His alpha male, dominant, protective nature could have taken over and made a bad situation even worse to the point that neither of them would have come out on the other side of it unharmed. To say I loved J. B. Salsbury’s series is an understatement. I'm obsessed! She has a gift for the written word and knows how to make a female empowered without being powerful. Power can be measured not only by physical strength but by love and tenderness as well. Her male characters show what real power they possesses…the power to love.

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!

    I loved this book completely. The storyline was very dark at times but the light was not far behind. The chemistry between Rex and Gia is off the charts hot! Their's is a very sad heartbreaking story but they eventually find eachother again and start to regain a life without darkness. At times I cried so hard my heart ached. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It's 305 pages and worth the read.

    J B Salsbury is my new favorite author

    Loved loved loved this book. I kind of read this series out of order, but these books can be read as stand alone books in my opinion. Let me start off by saying that i am so glad that i found these books from this author. They are so good. I have only read two of them so far, and cant find the third one for the nook. So im going to try to find it in paperback. Loved blake, layla, and axelle in this book. This author can tell an awesome story! I cant wait for more books! Great job Jamie Salsbury!!

    4.5 amazing stars

    Loved it! I'm a sucker for a good fighter romance. Some parts were predictable. Overall the story was worth every penny. I loved the drama which didn't over power the story. My heart broke for both Layla and Blake with their horrible pasts.

    Can't wait for Rex and Max's story!

    I loved this book and could not put it down. The characters are exceptional and well developed. I loved the ups and downs of this book and found myself smiling and filled with sorrow depending on the characters. I enjoyed watching the romance develope between Blake and Layla. I really enjoyed all the small details that added to the characters. This is one of my new favorite authors and series and cannot wait to catch the next and subsequent books that are sure to follow. If you haven't started these books you absolutely should. I will definitely recommend this book to everyone that will listen.
