Country’s hottest bad boy.
That’s what they call me. My label ate it up until I became “too bad” for the good folks of country music. That’s when Hard Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me. Probably not their smartest move, but I won’t tell them that. Especially when they’ve assigned me a babysitter to try and keep my ass out of trouble. One smart-mouthed, unimpressed, sexy as homegrown sin, Addy Mae Masterson.
She likes to pretend that she doesn’t like me and I like to let her.
I may have a past that haunts me and she may have a habit of getting attached, but damn if I don’t want to show her just how good this bad boy can be.
It’s easy to see why Addy Mae Masterson can’t help but get attached to Beau McCrae because underneath his bad boy exterior is a man who’s struggling to find his way apart from a complicated past and a present that he just can’t help but mess up with one too many drinks…one too many women…one too many bad decisions. But when Addy’s assigned as his babysitter and she refuses to accept his bullshit and his cocky attitude, Beau realizes that he’s the man he wants to be when he’s with Addy and as long as she’s willing to put up with him and give him room to make a few misjudgments, he just might find the one sugary sweet woman who makes him want to be more than the media has portrayed him to be and more than the troubled man who he’s convinced himself he is.
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 wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband and boys in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.
