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?
The book was intense and hard to put down. It hit a lot of issues that could have triggers for some. I was so spellbound I read it in one night. Recommend for adults. Would love to read more! A must read!
Recommended, but beware of triggers for some.
This book has many triggers, if you’re sensitive to these you may want to skip this one. Rex and Gia met when she was eight and he was ten. He suffered horrifically and she was his only solace. 14 years later the meet again but he doesn’t remember her. Will they be able to help heal each other from the scars of their pasts? This is a very emotional and disturbing story, but I enjoyed it.
