What a powerful whirlwind of a listen this was because it picked me up from where it had so cruelly abandoned me at the end of book 1, then it ruthlessly tossed all my emotions around, threw in shocks surprises and twists and finally it left me utterly tempest tossed..... but oh so so happy.
This new and gifted Author packed so much delicious drama into the many riveting and tension packed hours.... a soul deep passionate romance, hot sex, danger, the Irish Mafia, heartbreak, a hot dirty talking Alpha Hero, a feisty but vulnerable Heroine and there's also a close family unit of secondary characters. I'm not even going to give you a skeleton outline of the plot because there's so much action, suspense, heartache and a beautiful love story that's all yours to uncover.... but I will say that Mandi Beck certainly didn't hold back on the emotional punches.
As with book 1, it's mainly told from Deacon's powerful, volatile, fraught and very emotional POV and again Wen and Kai did a great job at making this story flow so well which maxed out my enjoyment because they brought each Chapter to life.
Worth a credit? Mandi Beck is a new Author and she'll be an auto download from now on because she blew me away with this powerful listen and the characters contained within it who I've been to Hell and back with and have grown so fond of.... sniff sniff - I'll miss them all. This second slice of Deacon and Frankie's explosive, all consuming and turbulent love story, IMO was definitely, unconditionally, absolutely and totally creditworthy.... in fact I'm tempted to listen to it all over again.

Where does Love Burns rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Definitely towards the top! I really love Wen and Kai's voices and they really were the perfect Deacon and Frankie.
What did you like best about this story?
I really liked the suspense and action in this book, in addition to the romance and witty banter. Deacon has THE BEST shirts and I love how fiercely all the characters love and rally around each other. They aren't afraid to call the other out on their BS, and the digs and comebacks are hilarious!
Which character – as performed by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott – was your favorite?
Indie is such a hoot! I love the way Kai brings her to life! She has some of the best lines and comebacks. I laughed almost every time she was in a scene. She is honest and fearless and she brought a lot of needed levity to the story.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Love Burns was a lot more emotional than Love Hurts. This one really did make my heart hurt. The conflict/drama that Frankie and Deacon have prior to the title fight really resonated with me, because Frankie voiced my feelings EXACTLY about the push and pull of their relationship.There are also events towards the end that are just gut wrenching. Though the epilogue was wonderful, there is still a part of my heart missing.
Any additional comments?
Although I did enjoy this duet, alpha Deacon is a little over the top for me at times. I did love watching him become the man Frankie always knew him to be though and was rooting for them to get their happily ever after. Wen was outstanding in this and made the story incredibly entertaining!
