Erin Dawson had the perfect life growing up in a perfect home with a perfect family. Her parents gave her and her sister everything a child could want. But after learning that the man she’s called “dad” her whole life isn’t actually her biological father, Erin is determined to find the man who is.

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.

Nikki’s review:

This is my first book by Chantal Fernando. I wasn't sure about trying a new to me author, but the cover of this book was what initially grabbed me, so I took a chance.

21-year-old Erin has just found out that the father she grew up with isn't her biological father. To her further amazement, she discovers her birth father is the president of The Cursed Ravens MC. Upon her arrival at the clubhouse she is immediately taken with the club man whore, Ace. 

Ace is kinda delicious sounding. And he has that bad boy alpha thing going for him. I can see why she wanted him. I liked Ace from the get go. He's tough and gritty, but he's also a good guy. He doesn't play games, and he makes it very clear that he's into Erin. 

I'm going to be honest here, I didn't care for Erin much. I know she's only 21, but her maturity level seemed more appropriate for a bratty 17 year old. She constantly rubbed me the wrong way. I kept wondering why Ace liked her so much...aside from her boobs and ass. Erin was a real distraction for me, and not in a good way. Her whining was constant and irritating. But I liked the rest of the characters, so I pushed on.

The secondary characters in this book were a hoot! They were the reason I didn't DNF this book. The plot was great. The writing was good, but again, Erin drove me batty. I liked the other MC members enough that I'll definitely read the next book in the series. Though I struggled to connect with the immature heroine, this is a good start to a new series. I'm glad I gave this book a chance. 

Rating: 3 Stars (B)
