***BLOG TOUR*** Ace of Hearts by J.C Valentine


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



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!


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!!

Cupping his handsome, scarred face in her hands, Barbara kissed him on the lips. “Don’t carry all your brother’s sins around in your heart and head for the rest of your life. You deserve a little peace from all that.”

His expression turned soft. “I honestly don’t deserve you.”

“You know what Shakespeare said.”

“Troubles come not single spies but in battalions?”

She grinned. “He did say that. You really know your Shakespeare.”

“Like I already said, I read a lot when I was in lockup.”

“Well, William Shakespeare also said that if we use every man as he deserves, who shall escape whipping?”

“I guess he was pointing out that no one’s perfect,” Ace surmised. 

Somehow, quoting Shakespeare while having her hands on his face shifted the darkness of the moment to something approaching intimate.

Rubbing one thumb over his bottom lip, she murmured, “Then again, he never met you. You’re totally my idea of perfect.”

“Bet you say that to all the guys.” His sexy smile made her girl parts flare to life.

“Please tell me that we’re having sex tonight.”

Ace’s expression lit up. “You want to have some sex with me?”

“Did you miss the part about me thinking you’re perfect?”

Picking up the cherry in her glass by the stem, he brought it to her lips. Parting her lips, Barbara allowed him to slide it into her mouth. Closing her teeth slightly, she waited for him to pull the stem. The intensity of his gaze as he watched her chew made her feel crazy things.

“Fuck, you are one sexy woman.”

She smiling, swallowing the cherry. “Another?”

Without looking away from her, he groped around in his little chilled metal dispenser for another and brought it to her lips. Wrapping her hand around his wrist, she used her other hand to take the cherry from him. Bringing it to his lips, they repeated the whole scenario, only in reverse. Tossing the stem onto the bar, she looked down at his hand. “Your fingers are stained red.”

“I’ve been handling cherries.”

Not taking her eyes off his, she brought his finger to her mouth. He swallowed thickly, as he watched her suck his finger. She swirled her tongue around his thick digit, just like she wanted to do to his cock. That concept wasn’t lost on him. 

Hooking his finger behind her lower teeth, he pulled her gently forward. When their mouths collided, white-hot need pulsated through her entire body. Ace was a damned good kisser and those hot lips were making her wild. Sliding her fingers through his hair, she practically climbed over the bar to get more of him, vaguely aware that he was shoving the items on bar to the side.

The next thing she knew, he’d lifted her out of her seat, dragged her over the bar, and was walking off with her. That he could manage all that so gracefully and without breaking their kiss was nothing short of amazing. Barbara liked everything about this man. His casual dress, open honesty, and protective nature got to her like nobody’s business.

And now he was about to get to her in ways, she suspected, that no other man ever had.
