Fighting the Fall by JB Salsbury

The toughest fighters aren't created in the octagon but are born of necessity. When life delivers blow after punishing blow, you fight back or get destroyed.

Eve Dawson has had her fill of bad luck. A string of unhealthy relationships has left her angry, bitter, and frustrated. She's given up on being happy and settles for content. Swearing off men, she repels advances and makes herself a challenge to even the most persistent suitors. After all, how much can the fragile human heart take? But life isn't finished with her, and when things can't possibly get worse . . . they do.

Stay on your feet.

It's Cameron Kyle's motto, but with his fighting career ripped from his grasp, a child he wasn't strong enough to save, and a marriage that even the brawn of a heavyweight couldn't hold together, it's getting harder and harder to stay upright. He takes on the position of CEO of the UFL, intent on hiding his biggest weakness in order to forge a path that leads him back into the octagon.

When an old rival mysteriously gets wind of Cameron's plan to fight again, he comes out of retirement to settle old debts, but secrets, lies, and betrayal threaten to deliver the death-blow. The distraction of a sass-mouthed girl seventeen years his junior is the last thing he needs until a tragic accident shatters the firm foundation of his resolve and he realizes just how far he's fallen.

Will they risk it all and fight to be together?

Or does defeat lie within the fall?

Seriously JB Salsbury you're a freaking genius! I was moving all weekend and wasn't able to start reading until last night...i stayed up until 130 reading and spent until just now on my ambulance (between calls and driving) finishing up the book!! I absolutely loved it!!!!!!!!!! It was amazing! My poor partner is ready to kill me but i dont care...i cant stop talking about this book! Rex is still my favorite though but this book is still amazing!

Seriously??? I keep thinking there is no way that JB can keep surprising me and making me love her characters more and more. I mean all I do pick up her books and can't put them down until I am done. I was even planning on not liking this book because I honestly didn't really like Cameron or Eve in the previous books. I didn't really dislike them but was indifferent towards them. Needless to say, I was wrong. This one was great. I couldn't stop from page 1. I love and hate that I devour these books. I will always love Jonah the most but now I don't know who I love more Rex or Cam. I mean these books just keep getting better and better. I honestly don't know how JB is doing it. I was never a big fan of Eve but I am really glad that I got to see more of her and get a better idea of her personality. I really wasn't ready to like her but I do. I mean at the end of the day she is pretty good. I really hate reviewers that tell you too much so I know I am being very vague here but all I can say is GO GET THIS BOOK!!! I am not sure how I ended up reading this series in the beginning but it is one of my favorite series and I can't get enough of these guys. I am giving this book 4.8 out of 5 stars. I recommend reading them in the order they were written and be ready to spend the day curled up with these guys because they will not let you go easily.

I really loved the first book in this series, but unfortunately the series has gone downhill in some fashion every book since. Cameron Kyle is the new CEO of the UFL. He has a tragic past and is quite a surly man. He has let no one touch his heart since a tragic accident changed him forever and tore his young family apart. He blames himself and thinks he is to blame for everything bad that has happened. When he meets Raven Slade’s best friend Eve, his interest is piqued. He can’t stay away from her and a one night stand soon turns into more, even with a large gap in age. Eve doesn’t think she deserves someone to love her, as she has a tragic past of her own. Can these two damaged people who have lost so much come together and make each other whole again? This book is kind of an enigma for me. I didn’t hate it, far from it. I found the characters and the general plot interesting, and the way the story is told really kept me reading. However, there were some blaring mistakes that shouldn’t be in a book at this level in my opinion. There was one particular part of the book that starts out as first person from Cam’s point of view, suddenly switches to Eve’s POV and then back to Cam’s. I assume it’s unintentional, but it’s little things like that which really ruin the reading experience for me. There’s also a part in the beginning where it says very clearly that Eve is wearing very tight jeans, but in the next scene when Cam gets her inside her rips her skirt off. That’s just sloppy storytelling. I hope they are editing errors that have since been fixed. There’s another part of the book that bothered me, but I don’t want to give it away since it’s a major plot point. I just really think that when you put medical conditions in a book that adequate research should be done in order to make it realistic. I am not a medical professional by any means, but even as a layman there are things in this book that are too much of a leap for me. Again, that just seems like sloppy and lazy storytelling to me. Now for the characters: I loved Eve. Finding out more about here was great and I thought she was a fun, spunky and tragic character. She was interesting to read about and I felt invested in her. Cam, I’ll just be honest…he seemed like a cheap Kristen Ashley alpha rip off to me. I wasn’t surprised in the notes at the end that the author thanked Kristen Ashley. Let me just say this: no one can do alphas like KA, and no one else should try to make their alphas like hers because they will fail. Jonah, for example, is a great alpha…and he was an original. Because of Jonah, I know this author didn’t have to try and emulate another author’s style. Cam just really came off as trying too hard to be what he wasn’t. I’m not sure if that makes sense but he just didn’t work for me. I admired some things about him, but overall I was disappointed. The plot was a little weak in parts, especially the subplot about Cam’s comeback fight. I saw that one coming from a mile away. But I did like the ups and downs of the relationship between Cam and Eve, and I thought that made the book a satisfying read. Overall, even if it may not seem like it, I truly didn’t hate this book. I just don’t think it has been as good as some of the others in the series. But, I will read the next book in this series and hope this one was a fluke. They can’t all be winners, after all. 3 stars.

The "hero's" behavior left me feeling craptastic. He used her and left her one too many times. No excuses, she let him - and she was an adult - barely. His traumatic brain injury issues might explain away some of his choices, but she had a much better option in Mason and chose unwisely. In fiction, I suppose choosing the bad boy makes for more drama, so there's more interest, better in real life, the good guy (who's dirty in the bedroom) beats a bad boy every single time.

Ever since reading the first book in this series (Fighting For Flight), I was wondering when we'd see a book for Raven's best friend Eve. It took a little while with this being the 4th book in the series, and it did NOT disappoint. Of course we saw Eve as the funny and supportive sidekick in book 1, but her one-liners and feisty attitude was front and center in this latest installment from Ms. Salsbury. Hating men doesn't mean you're attracted to women. (Raven) True. Vaginas actually gross me out. I shudder and cringe. The thought alone makes me gag. I'm not even a big fan of my own as often as the little slut gets me into trouble. (Eve) This was the first quote (pg. 13) that had me laughing out loud while reading this book, and it was only the beginning. The prologue sets the stage for Cam and Eve's story. It was so sad to read how his mind was thinking so much faster than what he could actually speak because of the effects he had to overcome from brain surgery. That helplessness was even more heartbreaking to read when you see how he couldn't think and move fast enough to save his daughter. And this was all in the prologue! This background for Cam, combined with Eve's role in Fighting For Flight, has the reader pulling for a happy ending for both characters. Getting past the age difference (17 years) may be difficult for some readers to get past, but eventually, you forget about it and see that Eve and Cam are exactly what the other person needs. I can't say this enough...this series has been an awesome ride and each book only gets better and better. Each can be read as a standalone, but is better read in order of the series. My only question is will we see a book for good-guy Mason and Killian and Axelle?

This one was a little different but just another reminder why she is an auto-buy. Cameron is a different kind of alpha from the others somehow, but every bit as hot! And as always, my only complaint is that I wish she could write faster because once again, I am left wanting more NOW!

JB does not disappoint. I can't write about this story without giving it all away. I don't like spoilers so I won't. :) this is a story about accepting that you can't change the past but you can be allowed to move forward. I strongly recommend this series. The only thing I didn't like was that the main characters speech was "guttural" and I've never liked when the author does that.

Did not enjoy as much as others in series but still worth it. I hope this authour continues this series they are some great characters to follow. I also love the fact that if i pay $4 for a book u get a book not like some where u pay that and get about 150 pages.
