Fighting Fate (The Fighting Series, #6) by J.B. Salsbury
Axelle’s broken. I live to hold her together.
Killian McCreery only has two dreams . . . Fight for the UFL. And Axelle.
He’s watched her give her time and her body to men who don’t deserve to breathe her air. He’s waited, worked hard to become the kind of man she deserves, hoping one day, when the time is right, he’d get the opportunity to make her happy. After a painful anniversary, he finally gets his chance.
But life has a way of sucker-punching its victims—striking when they least expect it in the most devastating ways.
Killian loves me. But I screwed up. Big time.
Axelle Daniels appears to be the typical college student—parties, hangovers, and men. No one knows that inside she’s a mess, and no amount of booze or meaningless relationships have managed to fill the cracks in her heart. But Killian knows. He’s been there since the night it all began and has never left her side.
When she wakes up one morning to find the consequences of her actions have caught up to her, even Killian’s white-knighthood can’t save her now.
Fate is put to the test when, for the first time in their five-year friendship, they no longer have each other to lean on. When he becomes a UFL superstar, she hardly recognizes the man he used to be. And she no longer needs him to hold her together.
With the foundation of their friendship gone, they’ll discover that even a love that is meant to be needs to be fought for and destiny is a choice
This was a great read! There was a certain point where I was trudging along, enjoying the story but about to update my status and call it a night. I happened to see a couple of reviews that said they cried like crazy! I thought... WTF? Why am I not feeling it like them? Why am I not crying?? I don't get it.
Well, Judy... because you hadn't turned the page yet! OMG, did I cry! I may have cried the last half of the book! Killian and Axelle! I've been waiting for their story and I was so not disappointed.
Axelle, we all know her story. She's had it rough in the trust and abandonment department. Her insecurities are endless. Is she worthy enough? Will this one stick around? Will he love her? "Some of our biggest mistakes end up being our greatest blessings." Killian is amazing. He's everything you want in a friend and lover. He's kind, considerate and thoughtful. He's gorgeous and talented, but not boastful. He's protective and he'll do absolutely everything he has to for those he loves. He's the ultimate book boyfriend. JB knows how to write big, tough men with a heart of gold, and that is exactly what Killian is! This story was sweet, tender, and loving. It was funny and sexy! At the same time it kept me on my toes. There was angst, drama and the unknown. Will he? Won't he? As with all the books in the Fighting Series these characters are a family. All for one and one for all! I know, wrong tag line, but still, I love the camaraderie and friendship that is ever present. KO for sure!! Amazon US/ UK
