Blind Jacks MC, #3

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.

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.

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!


~Our Thoughts~

Ace is used to women turning away from him; he’s got a scarred face and his twin didn’t have the best reputation.  When he meets Barbara he is caught off guard – not only does she not show disgust or fear at his appearance but she also seems to enjoy his company.  But old habits are hard to break & Ace keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Surely he doesn’t deserve the happiness and Barbara will eventually leave.  How do you make a bad boy see that he has a good heart & deserves love and happiness?

I had not previously read any of the Blind Jacks MC series but this is a standalone; if you have read the first two books in the series then you might appreciate the catching up with Tiffany and Ryder that you see in this book.  I also had not read anything by this author before but I am a fan of most MC romances.  This book almost has a reformed bad boy aspect to it, but only slightly – Ace knows he is a hardened man and he makes no excuses for it.  This is one of those books that once you start reading you may not notice time flying by.  I thought I had only been reading for about 30 mins but it had been a whole hour.  This book isn’t a very long one – it’s about 220 pages – and the pacing is steady; the author does a really good job of building the story and keeping the reader on his/her toes.  If you are a fan of MC Romances then you will have to check out this one.
