Eve Dawson has had her fill of bad luck. A string of unhealthy relationships has left her angry, bitter, and frustrated. She’s given up on being happy and settles for content. Swearing off men, she repels advances and makes herself a challenge to even the most persistent suitors. After all, how much can the fragile human heart take? But life isn’t finished with her, and when things can’t possibly get worse . . . they do.
Stay on your feet.
It’s Cameron Kyle’s motto, but with his fighting career ripped from his grasp, a child he wasn’t strong enough to save, and a marriage that even the brawn of a heavyweight couldn’t hold together, it’s getting harder and harder to stay upright. He takes on the position of CEO of the UFL, intent on hiding his biggest weakness in order to forge a path that leads him back into the octagon.
When an old rival mysteriously gets wind of Cameron’s plan to fight again, he comes out of retirement to settle old debts, but secrets, lies, and betrayal threaten to deliver the death-blow. The distraction of a sass-mouthed girl seventeen years his junior is the last thing he needs until a tragic accident shatters the firm foundation of his resolve and he realizes just how far he’s fallen.
Will they risk it all and fight to be together?
Or does defeat lie within the fall?

4 Fighting Stars!!
First of all can I just say.. J.B.Salsbury you are awesome. She really is, now go grab her books ;)
I think I have read every book this author has released and I can not wait for more becuase her books make you feel! Every emotion the character is going through and your heart hurts for them.At times you wish you could jump into the book so you could squeeze them and tell them everything will be okay because J.B.Salsbury's books always have a happily ever after just like these characters deserve.
'Fighting is my life. I can’t lose it. I will not lose everything over something I had zero control over.'
Cameron Kyle lives to fight but after an accident causes him to lose his fighting career and a whole lot more things have never been the same.The end of his fighting career had a big impact on his family and on himself and it's something he can't get over.
Eve Dawson is Raven's best friend and someone who is pretty much lost and lonely. She doesn't believe that she will get what Raven has with Jonah even though she craves it with everything she has.To be loved forever and not discarded like trash the next day.
'I always want more. That’s my problem. I want to be the girl that a man can’t live without.'
Eve is 24 years old and Cam is 38 years old which for me I had to stop and be like can I do this? Sometimes it just puts me off a book to have one or bother the characters over 30.Is this just me? I like at least one in same age group as me so in their 20's and the male has to be older but not wayy older that he is like her father or grandfather! Surprisingly it didn't put me off the book.It's just sometimes it happens and I much prefer the 20's age group thing.Not saying I haven't read books with weird age gaps and younger males and loved them but it does cause an issue for me at times. I thought that it would just be more physical than an emotional connection but it wasn't like I thought it would be.They both had issues they needed to work through and each others support and love to get through it.
'Her body erases my thoughts, helps me to forget all the shit. With her, it’s just us. No past, no future, just now.'
Overall this was another awesome book in the Fighting series, I really enjoyed it and never would have guessed the ending and I wanted more!I felt sorry for Mason bless his heart he needs a woman. Will he be getting a book soon? He is just such a sweetheart. I liked Jonah's part in this book and how he looked out for Eve like a big brother would, they were all a family who always look after their own.
This book has dual pov so we get an insight into both the main characters and can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading them all from the start ;)
*ARC provided for an honest review*
With my head down, I make way to my car when I notice a familiar car parked next to mine. I look up and my steps freeze just feet away. Leaning against my car, arms crossed at his chest, long powerful legs crossed at his ankles, is Cameron.
My hand clutches my purse to my side. “Hey, what are you doing here?” I internally scold myself for sounding more defensive than happy to see him. He can’t possibly know what’s in my purse.
It’s been days since I’ve seen him, and our quick telephone conversations do little to slake my desire to see him in the flesh.
He shrugs. “Passing by, saw the place was closed for the night. Thought I’d hang out and see if I could speak to the manager.”
My stomach jumps and goes warm. He came all the way here just to see me?
“Did you have a bad experience? Like to make a formal complaint?”
He pushes off my car and takes two steps toward me. Close, but not close enough. His eyes set in their usual glare, he shoves his hands into the pockets of his dark washed jeans. “Mmm . . .” He rubs his fingers across his lower lip, as he did the night in front of Mason. His eyes burn through me. “I have no complaints about my . . . experience.”
His presence combined with his insinuation become too much and I drop my gaze. A tickle of caution pricks at my subconscious, reminding me that I’m not the kind of girl who shies away from flirtation. I’m not timid, demure, or easily swayed by just any man. But there are a few who have brought me to my emotional knees, and both of them I dislike. Immensely.
His feet move into my line of site, and I pull my gaze up to settle on his face. How is he even more beautiful than I remember with all that thick dark hair, his fierce jaw, and full lips that I know are as powerful as they are soft?
“What’re your plans tonight?” He reaches out and brushes my bangs off my forehead.
Such a tiny gesture, but the sweetness of it makes my eyes flutter. “I was going to grab a bite to eat.”
His eyebrows pinch together. “You hungry? I’ll take you to dinner.”
I look around at the empty parking lot then move my eyes back to his. “Now?”
“You hungry now?”
“Then yeah. Now.”
“But it’s the middle of the night.”
The corner of his mouth lifts so slightly it’s barely noticeable. “It’s Vegas, babe.”
“But I’m in the mood for a bacon cheeseburger.” I lick my lips. I can almost taste the greasy goodness. “With green chilis.” My stomach grumbles in agreement. “And onion rings. Not the battered ones, but those breadcrumb ones.” I hum low in my throat. “Oh, and a chocolate milkshake or an ice cold beer will also do.” I tap my lips, thinking. “Hm. Maybe both.”
So lost in my food-fantasy I don’t notice the way he’s staring at me until I focus on him. His glare isn’t as tight as it usually is, and his mouth isn’t the straight—but full and kissable—line it usually is. It’s as if someone pulled the starch from his expression, not completely relaxed, but tender.
Silence builds between us and I shift on my feet. “Or not, ya know . . . I mean whatever you want is fine too.”
He tilts his head, still not speaking.
“There’s an IHOP down off of—”
“Shut up, Yvette.”
God, I hate that name, but hearing it growled from Cameron’s lips makes it more than tolerable.
“I’m sorry, it’s just . . . Did I say something wrong?”
His lips tilt, tilt, and holy shit, tilt some more, lighting his entire face, the entire city of Vegas, probably the whole damn atmosphere with the most brilliant smile.
“Far from wrong, babe.” He grabs my hand and tugs me to his chest. “I dig a woman who knows what she likes and asks for it.”
