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.


Guest Review by Tammy Cole

This is a debut novel by Mandi Beck and she delivered a 5 star book! Oh my goodness I couldn’t put this book down. I love MMA books and I have to say I think this is my all time favorite in this genre.

She grabs you from the very Prologue when Deacon is getting some personal attention from someone else and “The Princess” calls his cell phone. He immediately takes her call and you know from that point on Deacon is a man who will love fiercely. 

Deacon is probably the sexiest and hottest alpha male you will ever read about. He also has the dirtiest mouth ever! I just can’t say enough things about this book. If you like MMA books or alpha male books this one you will not want to miss. This does end with a cliffhanger so you will want to read book 2 asap. Mandi Beck is definitely going to be an author that I will want to read everything she writes.

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.


Guest Review by Tammy Cole

“She’s about to be wooed whether she wants to be or not. I’m coming for my girl, guns blazing. It’s time to go to war.”

Oh my gosh! I don’t even know where to start with this. I absolutely loved Love Hurts and I was anxiously awaiting this book! Let me just say that I applaud Mandi Beck because not only was this book AMAZING but it far exceeded my expectations!!!!

“I swear Reggie, you’re my friend, my brother, and we’ve been through a lot together, but she’s my girl and she’ll come first every f***ing time. I state simply”

I fell in love with Deacon instantly in the first book and I fell even more in love with him in this book. Deacon and his relationship with his princess is absolutely beautiful and so sexy and hot! You will get to see more of Deacon and his dirty talking, but you also get to see a side to him that is more gentle and softer with Frankie.

“Once upstairs I lay her down in the bed, crawling in after her, pulling the blanket around us. This is where I’m the happiest, not in the Cage, or the gym. Right here, wrapped around my girl.”

I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ll just say prepare yourself for a ride of emotions. I laughed, yelled at my kindle as I was reading, and I cried. This is by far one of my favorite books of the year!

“I’ll never stop fighting for her. I know in my heart, my soul, that I will never love another woman. I’m certain of it. She can take that sh*t to the bank.”

About Mandi Beck

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.
Love Hurts is her debut novel and she is currently working on the next in the series along with whatever other voices are clamoring for attention in her mind.
