This was very cute, which for me is an odd description for a "motorcycle club" read. But I digress, the characters were all incredibly likable. I found that to be refreshing. I think Erin was a very solid heroine. And again, it was cute and funny.
But it's another one of those reads that I'm not really sure what the point was. Nothing happened. And although I did like the MCs, I didn't necessarily buy into their love story. Which I think was due more to the storytelling than anything else.
This is my first read by this author. And I have seen that she has another popular mc series. What struck me as odd here was that to me, this read as a book that was written by someone that just took the introductory class on writing mc-light romance. After every mc-like thing would happen, such as introducing prospects, club business, old ladies vs. club sl*ts, the story would stop and explain how that fits into the mc world. All tell and no show.
The story def had potential. Again, it just all felt pretty basic and juvenile. It had all the makings to be something good, but fell flat for me.
I don't feel like I wasted my time or anything, but I wouldn't read another in this series or try her other mc books.
Would I recommend? Probably not. UNLESS, you really like motorcycle club romance but do not care for the edgier/grittier ones. I would categorize this as a safe read and it didn't pack much of a price commitment. But if you're an mc romance pro at this point, I feel like you could skip it.
Erin Dawson’s world is nothing like the one she’s about to enter, but she’s hellbent on walking into the Cursed Ravens club and demanding a meeting with Gage who just so happens to be the Cursed Ravens’ president. But, as much as she thought she was ready to meet her father…as much as she’s always felt like the black sheep of her family, it’s clear that her world is about to be turned upside down in unimaginable ways, and when it comes down to it, she’ll have to decide if she’s ready to be the princess of the Cursed Ravens or go back to the sheltered world she never felt accepted in, letting go of any contact with her biological father or the biker who she was instantly attracted to as soon as their eyes connected.
As soon as Erin takes one step inside, she’s initiated into ‘club life,’ and her moniker of ‘Trouble’ seems to fit her to a T, and because Erin’s story is told from her own perspective, readers come along for the ride, experiencing every ‘first’ that Erin has, all the ups and downs that come with it, finding her way and understanding how things work inside a biker club as well as forcing her to either accept how it all works or move on from what might be a family of bikers that she’s always needed.
Erin’s a sassy, smart-mouthed heroine who can definitely handle herself in the environment she finds herself in, but there’s also a learning curve for her because she’s not used to the no holds barred attitude that dominates the Cursed Ravens’ bikers’ lives or the fact that not all of her questions will receive answers.
Ace is all about his club, his brothers, and the code they follow, but Erin is a game changer for him, and while she’s supposed to be off-limits due to her ‘princess’ status, what’s between them is undeniable, so they’re both willing to face whatever consequences might be handed down from Erin’s dad/Ace’s President.
I really enjoyed Ace’s Heart; the interactions between Erin and her dad as well as the growing bond between Erin and Ace. I did have a few issues with the conflict/main antagonists given the setting of the storyline and the potential threats that the club could face; it felt a bit too contrived, but even though I struggled with it, I get that there needed to be events/situations that would lead to Erin’s realization of where she truly belongs, and what occurred did get the job done.
I’m excited for Fernando’s new biker series, and I’m eager to be introduced to other members of the Cursed Ravens and see what trouble they can cause as well as see how these MC brothers react and handle the women who make these bikers’ lives both heavenly and hellish at the same time.
4 Poison Apples
The story is told all through Erin's POV, but it isn't too hard to figure out what Ace is thinking, so I'm not at all upset it was only one POV. I did think that Erin was slightly a bit OTT bratty and mouthy especially since she was raised by her mom who is a straitlaced teacher and her stepdad who is also a teacher. I think the author wanted to point out that she had that rebellious nature from her real dad and she never really fit in with her conservative family and that she felt like she was different. But I think it was slightly hard for me to swallow that she would just walk into a biker home and really be that fearless. I did like Ace's character, though it is a little hard to really determine how he is since we are only moving through the story from Erin's eyes, but from the limited view we had I thought the author did a great job.
Between the slight lack of grittiness and realism of a biker story and Erin's slightly annoying character I took off one star for this, but it is the first book of the series and I plan on continuing to read the rest of the series. The price for the other books looks like it is about $5 so it's not too bad, though I'm hoping there will be a sale. At least it isn't $8 which is what each of the books in the Wind Dragons series is costing.
