Publisher's Summary

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?

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.

Heartbreaking and exciting. This was an excellent story. Hated the separation but other than that great read. Must read this one.
