I live to hold her together.
Killian McCreery only has two dreams . . .
Fight for the UFL.
He’s watched her give her time and her body to men who don’t deserve to breathe her air. He’s waited, worked hard to become the kind of man she deserves, hoping one day, when the time is right, he’d get the opportunity to make her happy. After a painful anniversary, he finally gets his chance.
But life has a way of sucker-punching its victims—striking when they least expect it in the most devastating ways.
Killian loves me.
But I screwed up. Big time.
Axelle Daniels appears to be the typical college student—parties, hangovers, and men. No one knows that inside she’s a mess, and no amount of booze or meaningless relationships have managed to fill the cracks in her heart. But Killian knows. He’s been there since the night it all began and has never left her side.
When she wakes up one morning to find the consequences of her actions have caught up to her, even Killian’s white-knighthood can’t save her now.
Fate is put to the test when, for the first time in their five-year friendship, they no longer have each other to lean on. When he becomes a UFL superstar, she hardly recognizes the man he used to be. And she no longer needs him to hold her together.
With the foundation of their friendship gone, they’ll discover that even a love that is meant to be needs to be fought for and destiny is a choice.We have been waiting for Killian and Axelle’s story for a while now and let me tell you Fighting Fate doesn’t disappoint at all. Be prepared to have your emotions go from one extreme from another. I laughed, I cried, I had hope, I lost hope, I wanted to scream, I may have thrown my kindle only to run and grab it right after, I smiled I frowned but in the end I loved it. I messaged Ms. Salsbury throughout me reading it and she can verify how my emotions were all over the place.
A couple of times I pictured myself as an MMA fighter just so I could beat some damn sense into Killian, more than once I cried because of him, now don’t think he is the bad guy here, in reality he isn’t, Axelle was no angel but both are to blame. I will also state for the record Frenchie needed to be pushed off the Eiffel Tower and not for a romantic reason either, trust me read the book you will understand that reference.
Fighting Fate, for me was more emotional than any of the other books, including Rex’s and for me that is saying a lot because his book is one of my favorites of this series. I say this because if you have followed the series you know Axelle’s background and how Killian has loved her for years even when they were just friends. She goes through a lot and is essentially alone because of her own actions. My heart went out to both of them and even when I wanted to hate Killian I couldn’t because I knew this was the journey they needed to take. At one point I really wanted to message Ms. Salsbury and say why, why would you do that but I stopped and thought about it and said to myself there is always a reason and even though I hated the reason I understood it. This book has left a mark on my heart and my soul, the writing, the storyline, the characters, and the series always as had a place in my heart but now it’s not only in my heart but my soul as well. I am still in a book hangover because of how much my emotions took over while reading, and I can’t wait for the next book just to feel all these emotions once more.
