I knew starting this book that it was going to be an emotional journey but I hopeful Braeden and AJ would find their HEA in the end. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author JB Salsbury releases the heart-pounding conclusion to the Fighting series.
When life brings you the perfect person at the worst possible time…
On a weekend visit to Las Vegas to visit his brother, Marine Braeden Daniels meets a woman who challenges him in ways he can’t deny. The best part is she wants what he wants.
No strings. No feelings. Just fun.
AJ is a Las Vegas performer who is finally living her dream. Growing up poor, she’s determined to succeed at any cost. No one will stand in her way—not even a hot Marine who breezes into her life all confidence and a cocky smile.
A few stolen weekends and neither can deny the feelings quickly growing between them. But the obstacles that keep them apart become more devastating when the Marine Corps calls Braeden away for a six-month deployment.
It’s only six months.
What could possibly happen?
Over the past 4 years JB Salisbury has made me laugh and cry with her Fighting series. She’s given us sexy Alpha Males and sweet sassy heroines who fight for love. The Final Fight, the last book in the series, is no different.
I was immediately drawn into their story and once I started reading it I didn’t put it down. Braeden and AJ have a quick and easy chemistry-with or without clothes on. It was evident they were perfect for each other but timing wasn’t on their side.
Their friendship grew quickly and easily. While neither was looking for more, you could feel their hearts breaking when he leaves for his 6 month deployment.
During their time apart they both experience tragedy. They are forced to change and must learn how to mend without one another. Despite constantly thinking of the other one.
At times I found the story to be predictable but I enjoyed it nevertheless. Their heartache and love was so real at times.
I also liked reconnecting with the other characters. Blake is one of my favorites and excited he was part of this final journey. There were also a few characters in the book that I would love to see them getting their own book.
The story can be read as a standalone and still enjoyed but I would recommend starting from the beginning.
