Blake and Layla have lived through disappointment and regret, only finally finding relief through the powerful love they have for each other. A love they intend to fight to keep.
They’ve had to forgive each other, but can they truly move forward without facing the pain of the past?
Layla’s been avoiding the phone calls. Nine months pregnant and exhausted, she doesn’t want the complication. But she can’t run from the truth. Whoever’s calling was there eighteen years ago. Unlike her, he remembers the night that changed the course of her life, and he’s ready to confess.
Blake’s preoccupied with an email, a few simple sentences sent through cyberspace that have the capability to rob him of his sanity, his freedom, and the people he loves most in the world. When he’s called home for a mysterious reason, leaving Layla isn’t ideal, but hope for reconciliation with his father combined with his brother’s secrecy ignites a curiosity he refuses to ignore.
Putting the pain behind them is no longer an option.
To get the answers they need, they must face the past and open up old wounds that threaten to bleed them dry.
If you haven’t read the previous books in the series yet there may possibly be some spoilers of the previous books in this review. You have been warned so take the appropriate actions now.
I didn’t think that I could love Blake more than I did when I read Fighting To Forgive, but A Father’s Fight has made him my all time favorite character of the Fighting series so far. Sorry Rex, you know I have love for you but Blake showed what a real man and father is. One that protects his family and hold on tight and never lets go.
We know from their previous book that Layla had been date gang raped in high school which led to her pregnancy of Axelle Rose (I still freaking love that name). Layla and Axelle are still working through that knowledge and Blake is there helping by taking care of his girls. But now there is someone who could possibly try to take that happiness away from him, someone who is asking questions about who the biological father Axelle really is. Both Layla and Blake try to do the right thing but sometimes instead of keeping truths in the name of protecting the ones you love you need to be a team and be there for one another. And no I am not going to tell you who it is. Read the damn book people.
I really liked seeing how Blake not only was looking forward to becoming a father, but how he was dealing with an issue from his past as well. Again read the book. Even though in Fighting To Forgive you can tell how important both Layla and Axelle are to Blake, in A Father’s Fight it becomes almost real. When we first met Blake I can honestly say I never thought he would turn out how he has and I am glad that he continues to fight for his girls. Oh and the baby’s name is perfect for this family.
A Father’s Fight reminded my again why I love this series as much as I do. It is because the tough alpha MMA fighters fall hard for their women and will do anything to protect them and their families. In other words they are what real men should be.
