My first read for Fernando, the newest Cursed Ravens tale starts out with lies, deceit, and one sexy biker. After finding out that the man she believed to be her father is in fact not her biological father, Erin goes in search of the elusive biker from her mother’s past. Met with the sexiest man she’s ever seen and rules of a club she doesn’t understand, Erin is thrown into a world so unlike her quiet small town. And it’s about to get crazier…
As Erin and her father navigate their new relationship, she also begins to develop feelings for the club’s ladies man & treasurer, Ace. He’s been sticking to her side and fighting an attraction himself. As he pushes the limits of club rules Erin has to decide between futures: small town life or the life of an old lady within the Cursed Ravens. As if figuring out two new relationships isn’t hard enough, someone in the club is set on taking Erin out for good. Danger, suspense, and some crazy bikers lead to a not so boring romance that is wild from the get go.
I immediately fell for our hero in this book. Ace is cocksure and has that half-smile that can make a girl sweat. But throughout the book he gets a bit stalker-y and controlling for my tastes. Not to mention that Erin ( a heroine who’s name we weren’t told right away and then suddenly another character knew it!) seems to flip flop on how she feels at the drop of a hat. Where the beginning of this story is quick, there’s a sudden change in timeline and I believe weeks went by but hadn’t been sure of it; threw me off a little bit. I think if this story had a bit more time to let the characters’ relationships really solidify I’d feel it was a bit more believable. That being said, it’s a fun read that I still want to know more about our fellow bikers in the club. If biker romances are your deal, that danger and desire mixed with badass-ery, then this series is a definite afternoon pick me up!
Armed with her original birth certificate, she finds her father, but begins questioning if her mom had been right all along to keep this information buried. It turns out he is the president of a motorcycle club, which could not be further from the life Erin leads. But, she’s determined to get to know the man who she gets her striking blue eyes from. Despite getting what she wants and finding her biological father, it’s the slightly older, much rougher but incredibly sexy biker Ace that catches Erin’s eye.
As the new “princess” of the Cursed Ravens, Erin is learning a whole new world, but her father has made it clear she is off limits. Will Ace follow his President’s orders or will he put his heart ahead of his duty? A sizzling tale of family and passion, Ace of Hearts features Fernando’s signature “snark and sass” (Booklist) and is perfect for fans of Kristin Ashley.
