WOW!!! What an AWESOME story, packed full with a whirlwind of emotions! It was Intense! Suspenseful! Dramatic! Steamy! And Sexy!! I LOVED it! But geez, I thought I was going to get whiplash from all the push/pull between Deacon and Frankie!
Wen Ross, and Kai Kennicott should be up for an Audie!! Their performance was animated, flawless, and you can feel all the emotions throughout the story. This duo always does an outstanding job!
Love Hurts was a thrilling, suspenseful, steamy story, and all I can do is ditto all the positive reviews on this one!

He's all Alpha, he's gorgeous, he's volatile, he's a dirty talking hot MMA Fighter, his name is Deacon Love and his kryptonite is the woman he's loved forever - Frankie - his Princess. And, even though there's an invisible force field between them, the timing never seems quite right to tell Frankie just how he really feels about her..... but suddenly that all changes the moment when Frankie gets an Engagement ring on her finger.
Frankie's a Dancer, she's been a close part of the Love family since way back, her Dad and Deacon's Dad are good friends, there's three sons however she's closest and best friends with Deacon but she knows what a man-whore he is. So when he corners her at her Party and passionately professes his undying love she's shocked, angry, confused..... and very very turned on. His swift but heartfelt declaration starts off an intense chain of events that range from bloody dramatic and pulse-pounding shocks, passionate steamy and love filled highs and then anger and hurt filled lows as their push/pull relationship finally hits rock bottom.
You could really feel Deacon's anguish, confusion, hurt, rage, anger, jealousy, love and heartache as they both completely wrecked their all too delicate relationship.... and how can it ever be mended again? I loved Deacon's character - he was obsessed with claiming his Princess and remained devoted and focussed on winning her back however he also had qualifying Fights to prepare for that would, hopefully, get him to the Championship but the more they grew apart, the more his anger levels grew until he was a powder keg just waiting for the spark. I didn't think Frankie was fair to him and only fuelled his temper more and I thought the angst between them was nearly all her fault.... but I'm in Deacon's corner all the way.
Worth a credit? YES, I was hooked right from the start as they struggled to be together then there was scorching heat and dirty talking passion followed by a lot of emotional intensity and insanity. There's also the threat of imminent danger because her vicious and mysterious ex, who has already proved he's capable of murder, is somewhere in the wings waiting to strike again. It's a stinger of a cliffhanger but Hallelujah coz book 2 is already here. Mainly told from Deacon's POV but there are infrequent ones from Frankie's POV too and I love Wen and Kai's style of narration because they each stick to their own gender's voice so conversations, and the Chapters, flow smoothly so you're left to concentrate on all the unfolding delicious lip smacking drama.

I really loved the way this book came to life in the duet narration style. Really cool.
I don't know many people who consider themselves fans of cliffhangers but in this case it seems fitting with so much left to be resolved between the "Hitman" and his "Princess". So excuse me while I go ahead and jump into book 2!
