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?

*****************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.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
This is definitely an adult novel. There is strong language and adult scenes. Though I could do with less of the coarse language, the intimate scenes are not vulgar. So you have been warned. I have not read the first two books in this series. I will make a point to go back and read those. This novel stands well enough on its own though.
I like the plot of the story. It is easy to follow and flows nicely. The characters are complex, their back stories are given to us a bit at a time, so it really keeps you engaged. As I got into the story I found myself wanting to know more. I had a hard time putting the book down after I got into it.
I enjoyed this book very much. I really found myself pulling for Rex and Gia. They're awesome characters! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a bit of action, romance, and finding your own place in the world. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
