It’s my name. It’s what I fight for. It’s Frankie.
I’m a fighter. Trained to always keep my cover. To anticipate, see the next hit coming. I never expected her past to come at us swinging like it has.
I’m about to take on two of the most important fights of my life. My girl and the belt. I know that I can handle it. That I’ll never stop fighting. But, what do you do when your life, your love is threatened and you can’t take the hits – she has to? You shut your eyes and fucking pray like hell that she’s strong enough, fierce enough to come out on top.
I went to war for her. Now it’s her turn.
I have been waiting for this book since I read an ARC of Love Hurts back in January. I didn’t know going in that it was a cliffhanger. I am the first one to admit that I don’t do well with them, unless the conclusion is readily available. Needless to say, the wait for the conclusion of Deacon and Frankie drove me a little crazy.
Thankfully, Love Burns picks up right where Love Hurts left off. And there is plenty of story left to tell. Deacon is still on his quest to win the belt, Frankie is still in danger, and together, they are still effing smoking hot. Sexy talking Deacon is back in full effect, loving Frankie just as strong and as dirty as ever.
There were definitely some twists in the story, and there’s at least one section where you’re going to need some tissues. But Mandi Beck gave us an awesome conclusion to Deacon and Frankie, and left the door open so that maybe we will get to see something from the other characters. I personally hope this is the case, because I will always visit with the Loves!
Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.
Love Hurts is her debut novel and she is currently working on the next in the series along with whatever other voices are clamoring for attention in her mind.
