REVIEW – LOVE HURTS by MANDI BECK
My Rating – 5 Stars
HOLY FREAKING SHIT I LOVED THIS DAMN BOOK
This is the first book I’ve ever read by this author and it is freaking amazing!! I devoured this book in 2 hours. I couldn’t stop reading, Page after page it just kept getting better. Deacon is the perfect mixture of an Alpha Badass and Sweetheart too. He is a tattooed, dirty talking, MMA fighting, ex marine with a body that’s in tip top shape that I wouldn’t mind doing a thing or two too!!. Then there’s Frankie who is a dancer and the Princess of the Love’s family and the apple of Deacon’s eye but there’s just one problem…she’s with another man. YES, you heard me another freaking man who is a grade A pretentious prick, who is jealous of her bond with Deacon. Then the unthinkable happens and Deacon is right where he needs to be and finally admits that he’s really loved Frankie since they were younger but can their love survive everything that’s being thrown at them or will it fall apart?
Even when she won’t fight for us, I’ll go to war for her…
Inside the Octagon, I have no fear. I’m at home, in my element, inflicting pain onto men trained to hurt me just as badly. Making them submit, knocking them out, maiming them, because it’s them or me. And I choose them.
Outside the Octagon, my only weakness is a five-foot-two, classy as fuck woman that I’ve loved for most of my life. She’s the one that brings me to my knees, fills my arms, my heart, and one day soon, my bed. She makes me reckless. Volatile. I drink too much and try too hard to fuck my way out of feeling—all because of her.
Frankie De Rosa is my girl, my best friend. I haven’t earned her yet, but I won’t stand by and let anyone take her from me. She will be the greatest fight of my life, but she’s worth the battle.
Love hurts, but anything worth having does, right?
I’m Deacon “The Hitman” Love — Welcome to the Cage.
