Chased by shadows of the past, Blake and Layla know what they don’t want, but their hearts have a different plan. As a web of lies and betrayal threatens to destroy them, they’re forced to make a choice. Is love enough to heal even the deepest wounds?
If you’ve read “Fighting for Flight” then you know who Blake is and you love him. For those of you that don’t know Blake, you really need to ask yourselves why you don’t know him. WHY???
“Fighting for Flight” is an awesome MMA romance…but back to Blake. He’s a smartass; doesn’t have a care in the
world, or so it would seem. He’s just all about being the best, both in the bedroom and in the octagon. There’s so much more to Blake, I knew it during the first book, and I was happy to have it settled in this installment. Blake has a heart, and Layla is the one who draws it out in him.
Layla is leaving a bad marriage with a teenage daughter, and isn’t looking for a new man in her life. She begins working at Blake’s training center and the sparks fly from there, both in and out of the bedroom.
What I loved so much about the first book by JB was the character development. You really got in there with the characters, and it was easy to understand their motivations throughout the book. Plus, the build up between the
characters, though it may be short, is electric. In this book, she continues that trend. The chemistry between Blake and Layla is undeniable. It draws you into their story and makes the book a real page turner. I finished this book in less than a day; I have a feeling most of you lovely readers will as well.
Another thing the author managed to accomplish was to tell a very nuanced and complex story. The characters, as well as the plot, have a lot of depth. It’s not a simple story, as Layla is a survivor of abuse at the hands of her ex-husband, who has more to do with the story than it first appears. I can’t say that by the time it all came to together I was all that surprised, but it was an excellent plot with a lot of action. And the sex…yeah, it’s pretty steamy. Winning!
Overall, I thought this was a great book. I really hope there are more books about the characters we have met,
because I have a fondness for them all, and I’m interested in how their story turns out. This book has great
characters, an interesting plot and a quality about it that makes you unable to walk away from the story without finishing it. Quite simply, it’s a good book. 4.5 stars!
