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.
Love Burns is the satisfying follow up to Mandi Beck’s debut novel, Love Hurts. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have been waiting on pins and needles waiting for this book to come out. Love Hurts ended on one heck of a brutal cliffhanger, that left us all gasping and wondering what would happen next. And let me tell you, Love Burns does not disappoint.
Love Burns picks up right where the last book left off. Frankie and Deacon are both seeing just how hard love can really be. Love is not easy. It’s hard and frustrating at times. At times, it takes a lot of work. But, if you love someone and I mean really love someone, you are going to have to fight. You’re going to have to put in the work and the time. Anything worth having is worth the time and effort. Yes, you will make mistakes. Yes, you will screw up. But, if it’s meant to be, then the end result is worth it. Frankie and Deacon are about to see for themselves just how true and real those statements are. They are in for the fight of their lives and will have many obstacles to overcome in their journey for HEA….
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It pulled me in from the very first page and kept me begging for more. Deacon really stepped things up in this book. Yes, he is still 100% alpha male, but he finally has seen the light and is ready to fight for what he wants. Frankie has also come a long way since we first met her in Love Hurts. Her character has grown and now that she knows what it’s like to love Deacon, she’s not going to give up on him no matter what. I felt even more connected with Deacon and Frankie this time around. They have such great push and pull. They frustrate me, but when they love, they both love so fiercely. They both made mistakes, but also learned just how important communication is.
Love Burns was one of my most anticipated duet sequels of the year and it did not disappoint. I loved everything about Deacon and Frankie’s story. The passion and love the two of them feel is intense,but so real. Their emotions so easy to get caught up in, as if they are your own. Love Burns has plenty of angst, romance, sexy times, action and suspense. The suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat just wondering how everything will work out in the end.
