Review: Fighting For Flight By JB Salsbury

What happens when in order to win, you’re forced to lose?

The only daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp, Raven Morretti grew up an outsider. Liberated from the neglectful home of her prostitute mother, she finds solace as a mechanic. With few friends, she’s content with the simple life. Flying under the radar is all she knows, and more than she expects.

Until she catches the eye of local celebrity, UFL playboy Jonah Slade. 

Weeks away from his title fight, Jonah is determined to stay focused on everything he’s trained so hard to achieve. Undefeated in the octagon, he’s at the height of his career. But resisting Raven’s effortless allure and uncomplicated nature is a fight he can’t win. 

Jonah trades in his bad-boy reputation and puts his heart on the line. But when her father contacts her, setting in motion the ugly truth of her destiny, Jonah must choose. In a high-stakes gamble where love and freedom hang in the balance, a war is waged where the price of losing is a fate worse than death.

Will the hotheaded Jonah be able to restrain his inner fighter to save the woman he loves? 

Or will Raven be forced into a life she’s been desperate to avoid?
For me there is something about a bad boy who has a reputation as a man whore who gets TKO’ed by a woman and is willing to change his ways but own up to the fact that this woman not only owns his heart but his soul as well.  Add in that he is willing to do whatever it takes to protect his woman, even at the cost of something for himself and doesn’t even blink at the thought and that right their ladies and gentlemen makes me love him even more. 

Jonah was exactly as I just described him, a bad boy whose reputation was well known.  He is an MMA fighter, an alpha, a man whore and gets knocked on his ass, figuratively of course, when he meets Raven.  He wants her, okay that may be a slight understatement, he is drawn to her like a moth to a flame and can’t help it. 

Raven is a mechanic and has not had a good life.  Her mother has never loved her, and when she learns who her father is after years of just wishing for him to be a father and love her, to say she is heartbroken is putting it lightly.  She was as drawn to Jonah as he was to her and loves that she is able to work with him to restore his car.  They continue to get closer and closer and when they finally are together holy hell I thought my kindle would catch fire. 

Together Raven and Jonah are stronger and when something happens that risks their relationship I was on the edge of my seat to see what would play out.  Did you honestly think I was just going to tell you?  Come on now you know better than that so read the book. ;) 

I think any fan of MMA books will love this series.  Fighting For Flight is the first book in the Fighting series and you get to meet the other fighters and let me just say these guys are all alpha men who will make you want to drop your panties in a heartbeat and will have you fighting for their attention.
