Series: The Aces MC #1
Author: Nicole Jacquelyn
Release Date: August 27, 2013
“How is it, that someone can make decision after decision attempting to get away from their past and somehow end up right back where they started?”
When Brenna decided to leave the only life she’d ever known, she never thought she’d ever be back. Now, five years later she’s running from her clean cut husband straight back to the motorcycle club that raised her… and the man she left behind. She left with a secret, and as soon as she returns the truth will break her carefully constructed life wide open.
Craving Constellations was an exciting beginning to the Aces MC Series. Nicole Jacquelyn has me totally intrigued by the MC world she has created and the colorful characters that kept me genuinely entertained. Brenna and Dragon’s story was unexpectedly touching and absolutely sizzling. I loved the twisted history between these two and my heart ached as they tried to move beyond the mistakes of their past towards an unknown future. Their undeniable connection fueled this story, making their journey a highly emotional and sometimes painful one.
“My mind was racing. In my head, I reminded myself that he was taken, but I couldn’t get over the feeling that he had always been mine.”
Brenna has a lot of growing to do when the story begins and I loved how Nicole Jacquelyn brought her into her own. Watching her and Trix find their strength and come out of their shells was sincerely beautiful. I especially enjoyed seeing Brenna with Dragon, finally feeling safe enough to push back and be her own person. Dragon was sexy and protective, all of the things you want in an alpha biker BBF. Nicole Jacquelyn wrote his inner turmoil in a way that was all too palpable, making me feel every bit of his anger, sadness, and regret. Seeing him with Trix was just icing on the cake, giving him a surprising sweetness that made me grin.
“He didn’t get the chance to watch me grow, so now, he was following the scars like a map of what he’d missed.”
Craving Constellations was well written, keeping me absorbed in Brenna’s story. Nicole Jacqueline did a great job balancing the emotional component of this story with the twists and turns of the plot. I would have liked to have seen more of both Dragon and Brenna’s histories with the club in order to better understand not only the dynamic between them, but their history with the rest of the club as well. This book easily got me interested in several of the other club members, ensuring that I will be back for their stories. I’m curious to see where Nicole Jacquelyn will take the club dynamic and how each couple’s journey will fit into the overall story of the Aces MC.
