Fighting for Flight ( Fighting #1 ) by Jamie Salsbury

Fighting for Flight by Jamie Salsbury
Excerpt

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?

Review

The prologue was very interesting. It feels like an awesome mystery awaiting to unfold regarding the baby and all. Fast forward 20 years later, we were introduce to Jonah, who seems like a jerk. But that's okay, since most of the time we love them anyway. Then we were introduced to Raven, the 20 years old mechanic. Jonah came to the shop and wanted Raven to help him with some car problems at his place. This is when things doesn't works right for me. Raven basically melted into a puddle of goo when she first lay eyes on Jonah. She even stutter. Are you kidding me?
