“Luca….”
She whispers my name at night, filling my dreams with her haunting beauty.
Her tormented amber eyes beg me for something I don’t understand, and her agonizing pain becomes my own.
For years, she’s come to me, calling my name.
For years, I’ve never known who she was.
Until now….

 

About Alex

Alex Grayson is the bestselling author of heart pounding, emotionally gripping contemporary romance including The Jaded Series, The Consumed Series, and two standalone novels.

After spending several years as a devoted reader and blogger, Alex decided to write and independently publish her first novel in 2014 (an endeavor that took a little longer than expected). The rest, as they say, is history. Originally a southern girl, Alex now lives in Ohio with her husband, two children, two cats and dog. She loves the color blue, homemade lasagna, casually browsing real estate, and interacting with her readers. Visit her website, www.alexgraysonbooks.com, or find her on social media!

***RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW*** Ace of Hearts by J.C Valentine

Reactions: 

ACE OF HEARTS

by J.C. Valentine Blind Jacks MC, #3 Publication Date: May 24, 2018 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, MC Romance, Biker, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS:

Being granted a second chance at life and a first time at love was every man’s dream, but for Ace it came with a price.
Ace By all rights, he should be dead. Serving ten years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit had affected him in ways he couldn’t begin to understand. He’d rolled out of the slammer and into a revenge plot that almost got him killed. By the grace of God, when he’d hit rock bottom, one person reached out a helping hand.
A beautiful redhead with a penchant for mischief took a shine to him and then disappeared, leaving behind only her number scribbled recklessly on his arm. Assuming he can make out all the numbers, he just might have a chance at something amazing.
Barbara Finally divorcing her narcissistic husband was the best choice Barbara ever made. After living under his control for seven long years, she might have gone a little wild for a minute, what with jumping the hot biker and all. None of that mattered, though, because today was the day she got herself back on track.
After being given the opportunity to excavate a small cache of fossils in a remote area, Barbara is horrified to discover she’s inadvertently led a small team of her archeology students into danger. When they stumble on a secret dumping site of a vicious serial killer, Ace, the big, handsome biker takes charge. But she may have gotten herself and her students into more danger than even he can handle.
*NOTE* Although a part of the Blind Jacks MC series, ACE OF HEARTS can be read as a STANDALONE and features a new couple!

REVIEW

I'm loving this series!! 

Up now is Ace.  Having made peace with Ryder he's settling in well to club life.  Having been patched in quickly he feels accepted even though his past still affects him from time to time.  Having been accidentally shot he meets Dr Barbara Reynolds.  Something about the way she looks at him makes him feel all kinds of good.  Attending her class he just wants to be near her.  They start up a friendship with texts but Barbara can't seem to stay away from him.

Meeting Ace in the doctors office Barbara finally feels like she has met a man who will actually cherish her.  On the back end of divorce when she meets Ace she becomes someone brave and adventurous.  Something she's never been before.  She finds herself thinking of him constantly and can't stay away.  She knows he's everything her ex was not and she wants him badly.

One event affects both Barbara and the club and it throws them together.  Can they figure out whats going on before people start to take dirt naps?

I absolutely loved Ace.  His lack of confidence cracked my heart!  His past plays on his mind constantly until finally Barbara's actions and words start to make him believe that maybe she does have a point, maybe he is worth it.  He really really is!!! He's string and tough and Alpha but he's so sweet with it and caring and protective and fun!  I loved seeing his doubt drift away along with his nightmares.

Barbara is amazingly sweet and innocent but she has a little wild side that Ace seems to pull out of her.  She's quite level headed and deals with their troubles really well.  It's like she's always been around the club.  When she stands up to Darkness i felt like cheering for her.  But the thing i loved the most was her absolute certainty about Aces value.  She saw it straight away that he was someone she wanted to spend her life with and i thought she did a brilliant job of proving to Ace he's worth it!!

I love seeing the club dynamics developing and i'm really excited for this series.  Peb and Cork are intriguing and so is the new kid Jack.  It was also great to see Ryder, Tiffany and Darkness and their parents lives going so well! Ohhh and Earnest!! He's a real cuteheart! 

The storyline was well paced and kept me reading almost non stop.  I was kept guessing nearly to the end as to who the bad guy was.  I'm loving how these books just feel like one long story and bits of the club are opening up in each one.  It's fab just to pick them up and continue on the Blind Jacks journey!

Highly recommend i would say you can read as a standalone but i think you'd be missing out by not reading the others.

5 Little Ace stars!!

EXCERPT

Climbing into bed behind his lovely professor seemed different. At the clubhouse, neither of them felt particularly at home. It was clear that Barbara felt totally comfortable in her own home, though. The strange part was that Ace felt very much at home there, too.
“This is all kinds of weird for me.”
“My house must seem like a tiny doll house to you.”
“It feels more like a warm, safe nest that’s been made enticing by the addition of a beautiful and accommodating woman. I’m feeling a bit like the world’s last dodo bird or something.”
“In that case, we had better start making babies before you go extinct.”
“The last time you said something like that it triggered a little episode of self-loathing.” Pulling the blanket up around them, he murmured reassuringly, “Don’t worry, this time I have my head screwed on straight. I’m intentionally not using a condom and will be trying my best to make ugly little dodo babies with you.”
“You’re so funny.”
Ace frowned. “Why do you want to get pregnant?”
“Fertility stays relatively stable until around age thirty in women. After that, it begins to drop off slightly. Since I gave my marriage a dirt nap, I suppose I’ve been worried about missing my window.” Eyeing him with heated admiration, she continued, “You’re a big, strapping biker. You look like you could get the job done with some swimmers to spare.”
Moving closer, he grinned. “This is like a whole new side of your personality that I’ve never seen.”
Running her hand over his chest, she laughed. “It’s the neurotic and slightly panicking side.”
Jerking his chin for her to give him a kiss, he murmured, “It looks good on you.”
Rather than following his nonverbal communication, she asked softly, “So do you have baby-related secrets to share?”
Reaching out, he wrapped one arm around her and dragged her close. “Sure, but I don’t think you wanna hear them.”
“I do, so cough it up.”
Spanning her stomach with his hand, he said, “I’ve thought about how nice it would be to see my child growing inside you. You’d look really sexy with a baby bump. I’d be one of those obsessed dads who listened to your stomach and told our little princess stories so she’d get used to my voice. Since I don’t know any stories fit to tell a baby, we’d have to go to one of those fancy bookstores and buy some. Maybe we’d get one of those fancy coffees you like so much.”
Her eyes damn near sparkled. “That’s about the sweetest baby secret I ever heard.”
Looking down at his hand on her stomach, he whispered, “I’d have to be really careful, ‘cause I wouldn’t want her to be scared when she saw me for the first time.”

on the beach. Check. Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check. How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons: Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season. Check. Check. Check. I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss. Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town. Especially when he’s mean to you. Or so I thought. Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark. That was sort of how it all started with Rush. And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down. I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close. I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me. As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
