It’s my name. It’s what I fight for. It’s Frankie.

Mandy Beck just took me on an amazing journey over the past few hours of reading Love Burns!! This book has by far exceeded my expectations. Beautifully written, Love Burns is one of the best books I have read all year right alongside its predecessor, Love Hurts. I was totally drawn in to Deacon and Frankie’s story right from the very first chapter. The chemistry between them is off the charts HOT (blazing hot scenes)! Throughout their story you feel everything, but most o

I went to war for her. Now it’s her turn

I fell hard for Deacon “The Hitman” Love when I first met him in Love Hurts while Frankie took me a bit of warming up to. In Love Burns, the tables turn and I found myself struggling with some of Deacon's decisions while I loved seeing Frankie come into her own and find her inner strength and voice.

One thing that soured my enjoyment was this (I'll spoiler tag even though it is something that's revealed in the first chapter

"Love shouldn't be like this. It shouldn't hurt so much,burn your soul. That's not the kind of love I want."

If you've read the first book "Love Hurts" then you know that it ended on a huge cliffhanger and made people want to do serious damage to their electronic devices.

This story picks up right after and Frankie and Deacon are dealing with the aftermath.What are their choices now? How do they move on and how can Deacon protect her and still mai

Love Burns was an epitome of emotions!!

Picking up right after where bk1 left us, you will be hurdled into a whirlwind courtship that will both invigorate you and frustrate you.

Both characters have a lot of stepping up to, growing up, and expanding their horizons. Of which, they learn a lot about themselves and each other, and shape themselves into the people they’re meant to be.

Say "you feel me" one more time.
This book wasn't awful, but it wasn't great either. In all honesty I only read it because the first book ended on a cliffhanger and even though I didn't care for the first I had to know what happened.
Frankie and Deacon could have had a really cute love story but the fact that he couldn't tell her all the things he loved about her without it revolving around her tight pussy and great tits just killed it for me. I love a good alpha, but not one who can't

I was lucky enough to read this book early. Love Hurts was one of my top favorite books of the year and to say I was dying to read this book was an understatement. Deacon and Frankie are one of my favorite couples and the love and passion these two share is off the charts. They go through a lot together and things aren't always easy but the deep connection they share always brings them back to one another. The conclusion to their story was amazing! I laughed, I was angry for both characters, I w ...more

I was given an arc of this book and these are MY thoughts!!!

The wait for this book was so painful... but soooooo worth it!

This picks up where Love Hurts left off (talk about a cliffhanger).

I loved the first book and i loved this one too. It had me on the edge of my seat and had my emotions up and down.

Deacon is so hot and alpha and has such a filthy mouth.. a change of knickers is a must! :p

This is an action packed story and Frankie has some badass moments! She is totally my spirit animal!

Stick and move !!

I really devoured this two book series ! I loved the angst and the love of Frankie and Deacon !
So it's almost here. The wait is close to being over. And I can tell you with the utmost certainty that it was worth it! I fell in love with Deacon all over again in this book. His dirty mouth, his no holds barred dialogue, his love for his family and his swoon worthy adoration of Frankie. And Frankie, well I fell in love with her too. She kinda drove me nuts in LH but she seemed to have done some maturing in the last few months because she is the shit in Love Burns.

Love Hurts and Love Burns those four words couldn't be more true ...

I've waited a long time for the conclusion of Deacon and Frankie's story and let me tell you it was so worth the wait !!! This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions , i laughed , cried , screamed and needed wine. There were a few surprises I did not expect and did I mention how SCORCHING Hot this book is ?!!

Mandi has outdone herself and I look forward to reading anything she writes ..

I absolutely adore Mandi Beck. But I honestly wanted to break up with her a couple times. First with Fankie being a pain in the ass in Love Hurts, then with that cliffy (OH MY GODDDDDD)...Then a couple times during this book when I honestly teared up and cried a bit. But I'm glad I powered through. This book has the ending Deacon and Frankie deserve

Love Burns picks up right where book 1 left off and it was definitely an emotional ride! I couldn't wait to find out how Deacon and Frankie's story ended. This is book 2 in the Caged Love series and should be read after reading Love Hurts.

My love/hate relationship with Deacon and Frankie continued with this book, but I did like that they grew and matured over the course of this duet. I love a good alpha, but Deacon was a bit over the top at times for me. I would have liked to know more about why

Holy shitballs everyone…this book was EPICALLY-FUCKING-AWESOME. There’s really no other way to say it. It’s just one of those things that just IS. After the cliffhanger in book one, I was rightfully pissed. I mean, how you gonna do that to us Mandi? Leave us high and dry with book blue balls and then say it’s going to be months, MONTHS, before we get any satisfaction!

This story brings to mind one of a hound & it's master.It's akin to you having a dog that eats at every house it visits & you dislike that behavior & you just want that dog to be faithful only to you so you start paying extra attention to it,stroking it & eventually it starts eating from only your hand.As soon as you have him all tied up,placid & all puppy dog eyes you begin slowly withdrawing from the animal until you stop feeding him.

SOOOOO good and soooo bad.
It will tear you up and piece you together.
It will break you. Mend you. Mold you.
It's an internal flame.
A combustion. Spark. Fire that burns inside out. You feel it from the tip of your head to the tip of your toes.
It's more then the tip… it's a hit that lasts FOREVER. You will be knocked on your knees. Left breathless, and panting for more.

It leaves a never ending scar.

That was one wild ride. The ending to Love Hurts made me impatiently stalk the release of this book. Crazy emotional ride. Love dirty talking total alpha Deacon. He and Franke finally get their acts together. The threats against them are very real and you learn what her ex got himself into and why Frankie is a target. There were sweet, funny, sexy, and frustrating moments. I was so mad at what happens, but the ending is wonderful. Fantastic series. Hope we get a book with Mav and Indie too. ;)

The wait is over for the conclusion of Deac "The Hitman" Love's story with Frankie!

*Throws hands up* I don't even know where to begin!
So many emotions in this story! I had to go back and read a certain chapter twice! Omg the feels from it will gut you!

Never fear, Frankie will piece you back together. The chick has a way with words & heels.

Many news surprises in this one!!!

Keep the tissues handy tho! You will most definitely need them. & wine.

This second book is almost a carbon copy of the first book, you have MMA fighter the egotistical Deacon and his childhood friend Frankie and a continuation of their romance. Deacon who love's himself more than Frankie does and Frankie who just loves to play men of each other. And those annoying repetitive constant phrases such as "Princess" "Stick and move, stick and motherf**cking move" "Bay-bay" OMFG I could go on but I am done.Narrated by Wen Ross And Kai Kennicot.

“My lips kicked up in a smile, when she reaches me, I take her face in my hands and bend so that I can see into her eyes. ‘You’re beautiful.’ Sweeping the hair off her face and tucking it behind her ear.”

As Deacon and Frankie's story continues, we find the fighter and his Princess at a difficult point in their relationship at the beginning of the book. Deacon, the fiercely protective person that he is will do anything to make Frankie happy and to keep her safe. Frankie, ever the stubborn one refuses to let the man she loves take a fall for her.

I was so over Frankie at this point. I was happy Deacon put her in her place a few times. I did like him. Yes he screwed up a few times but she wasn't Miss I'm never to blame either. I didn't like what happened to Sonny because I don't think the book needed any extra drama but watching Deacon struggle with it was real and I loved that they named his son after his uncle.

I really did like the story and I wonder if Mav and Indie are the next story. I give Deacon alone 5 stick and motherfucking move

"Got my girl, got my belt. Stick and move. Stick and motherfucking move."

I think I'll be swooning for days over Deacon! Matter of fact, he's going on my list of favorite book boyfriends! He is the ultimate alpha of all alphas! Love Burns picks up right after Love Hurts which ends in a cliffhanger. I hated that it was a cliffhanger but knew I'd devour Love Burns quickly after. There were parts about the books that I didn't like so much like the cheating but if you look past all of that

I usually listen to audio books while I work and having people over on a daily basis has caused me to take longer than usual to finish this one! Did I enjoy it? Heck yeah!! Would I recommend it? In a heartbeat!

Now do know that book 1 must be read or listened to prior to this one as this is a sequel. That said, plot-wise there is not much I can say since I don't write spoilers, but know that Deacon was just as swoon-worthy as ever 😍 and Frankie wasn't as irritating

I'm a little upset with the book and a few things that happened. I feel like all Deacon talked about in Love Hurts was how much he loved Frankie and that he never wanted to hurt her. I understand that she caused him some pain and grief and their relationship was really confusing at times but in the end they both said they loved each other. I thought that Deacon had learned his lesson in the first book with letting his body parts make decisions for him but that is not the case. The book starts of ...more
