Review: JB Salsbury's "A Father's Fight (Fighting #5)."
Life changes in the span of a heartbeat—one tiny heartbeat.
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.

I absolutely loved this book!
It had been a while since I had read about Blake and Layla, but the minute I opened this book I was right back where I had left them. I remembered it all.
Blake and Layla are having a baby and couldn't be happier, but before they bask in that happiness, they both have old wounds that need re-opening and dealing with. However painful. Both of their struggles are hard, and watching the two of them struggle through whilst they deal with them, sometimes had me close to tears.
"Love is what makes the pain of the fight so worth it."
There were some major ups and downs in this book, but ultimately, for a novella, it wasn't too much. It was of course a short read, but I feel like we got all to feel all of the necessary emotions, that accompany the plot of the story, without it having to feel rushed and forced.
A major player for me in this book was Braeden, Blake's brother. I can't recall whether we've met him much beforehand (we probably have and I forgot.. eek) but he was very apparant in this book and I loved his character. I'm hoping that we'll be given the chance to get a closer look in to his life, in a future book.
On the whole, this was a great book, one that I zoomed through and loved every part of.
"Your choices were taken away from you, Mouse. I want you to have them back.
You want to wear white; you fucking do it and own it.
Throw a big fat middle finger to the past, and take control of your future."
I rated "A Father's Fight" ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
