あらすじ・解説

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?

PREPARE TO BE SHREDDED TO PIECES

I've listened to many stories about overcoming adversity. Now, Fighting to Forget is one of my favorites. I should note, it was not without its extremely tough/dark moments where I wasn't sure I could stay focused on the bigger picture. Rating and reviewing this one is a tough call because it triggers so many different emotions, and like any book centered around a particular trauma that causes physical and emotional scars, it may not be for every reader/listener, but its worth giving it a try. I love JB Salsbury's style of writing, and it was beautifully written. Furthermore, with two great narrators, they truly brought these characters and the story to life in bold, vivid color! Passionate, is an understatement in terms of the narration.

The journey for both Rex and Georgia Mac to find peace, acceptance, love, you name it, was heart-wrenching and wonderful. I loved it.

Hard to hear

This book touched on some very hard topics. Most of us would not know these situations but they do exist. I think because they were children it made it more difficult to listen to. However this was another awesome book that would make a good movie as well.

Gritty....not for the faint of heart

Where does Fighting to Forget rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like the series but I have to say this is one of the most difficult books to listen to. Even though its a good book the topic of child molestation is a difficult one for me to wrap my mind around.

If you’ve listened to books by JB Salsbury before, how does this one compare?

This is the third book in the series and by far the most gritty and hard to get through. The topic of child molestation is never easy to hear about ... and its a theme that is at the forefront even to the end of this book.

Have you listened to any of Erin Mallon and Ryan West ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

They were awesome performers. They made the book easier to listen to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The prologue. Without giving away a spoiler .... it was very moving the bond the two main characters formed.

Any additional comments?

If you have read the first two books in the series, this one is tied in with the main characters from those books. It is a stand alone so its not necessary to have read them but I recommend those books highly. This is not my favorite book in the series and I most likely would not have finished it had it not been for the first two books. This is book does have a light at the end of the tunnel but its an emotional journey getting there. The subject matter and abuse they characters suffered is why I did not give the story itself a higher rating. If you don't mind gritty, child abuse, flawed characters in the aftermath ... you would enjoy this book. It is worth a credit.

EMOTIONALLY DRAINING, BRUTAL & YET BEAUTIFUL TOO

Although this isn't my favorite in the series and it was a very hard and heart wrenching book to listen to, I have to give it 5 stars because a) child abuse and it's effects in later life must have been a very harrowing topic for the author to research, b) a brave thing to write about and c) then to successfully spin it into a tormented, tortuous tender love story took a very talented author. But she did it...... in this listen JBS captured the heartbreak, the denial, the anger, the physical and psychological effects so well and the narrators brilliantly brought it all to gut wrenching life.

Two young abused children then reunited when they're mentally damaged adults sharing a bond only one remembers then terrible secrets, brutal shocking discoveries, revelations, twists and turns, heartbreak and drug abuse mainly set in a Fight Club/MC Club/Bar. But it also has it's beautiful and tender times too when they first became lovers and then again after all the explosive drama of the betrayal was eventually forgiven and finally when the traumatic life/death struggle was over.

Worth a credit? It's a heartbreaking, haunting and harrowing journey, the ride was action-packed and the final destination was imperfectly perfect for these two scarred souls. Definitely worth the credit IF, and only IF, you can listen to hinted brief glimpses of child sex abuse (because it doesn't go into graphic detail) but it's the mental trauma and damage that'll bring you to tears.

Loved Narration

Loved these narrators. Ryan West really nails the sexy, gritty, and tortured vibe of Rex. This book covers some very dark subject matter but the author shapes it to deepen the characters and make they sexual connection even hotter. Loved these sex scenes.

Gut Werenching

I don’t know how accurate this book is, but it certainly has me thinking about it long after I’m done. Ryan West is amazing, as usual, and the characters came to life—angst-filled, horrifying life, with much taught about mental illness. I didn’t know what I was getting into and I’m not sure I want to read many more of its kind, but an important book. Relevant and timeless. Great job!

Fighting to forget.

So far, this one is my favorite. The others were good, but this one had more feeling. The two main characters had more of a connection.

The book was funny, sad, and very emotional at times. loved Rex and Mac/Gia.

Fighting to forget

The book suggests it’s about fighting, but rather is about drugs and wierd sex. There is very little mention of fighting and mainly focuses on everything wrong with the world, which leaves you feeling depressed as all heck.

Speechless

Who was your favorite character and why?

gia and rex are both strong on so many different levels and complement each other perfectly it would be impossible to choose between them

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not gunna lie this was an emotional rollercoaster so much stuff has happened to both characters you really can't ignore it or push it away little part of you thinks that they need to talk to their friends about it but another part thinks that could make things harder and no one really wants to be destroyed with the weight of sympathy and pity but responsibility to each other need of freedom and life love without a pain gia and rex can finally begin

Any additional comments?

Hands down struggle story with a sliver lining and i loved it
