My Review

4.5 Dirty little secrets Stars


“You stop, I’m gonna lose my fuckin’ mind. You’re so fuckin’ gorgeous up there, ridin’ your man with your tits fuckin’ bouncin’.”-Dragon

Wow Craving Constellations, the first book in the The Aces Series, is a gritty, sexy and dirty read. This was definitely not a fluffy lighthearted read. Craving Constellations is everything you expect from a MC book. I felt so much while reading this book. Happy,sad and super pissed. This book hit nerves, left me raw and then made me swoon. 

“You could gain fifty fuckin’ pounds, all that in your ass, and I’d still think you’re the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen,” he whispered before he leaned down and kissed me right above my left breast. “I love you, woman.”-Dragon

Brenna was raised in the MC life. She didn't want to be a old lady that sat at home while her man was out banging skanks behind her back. She wanted a normal life, and a faithful husband. So she left for college with plans to make a normal life for herself. While home for the weekend she meets Dragon. Dragon is new and doesn't know she is the VP's daughter. She wants Dragon so she doesn't tell him who she is and sleeps with him. Not only do they have mind blowing sex but they stay up all night talking about everything. Brenna really wants more with Dragon but she knows that if anyone finds out they had slept together that it could me death for Dragon. So she leaves in the morning. A few weeks later she finds out she is pregnant with Dragon's child. Scared, alone and feeling trapped she gets married her college ex boyfriend Tony. Tony is an abusive bastard and he beats her all the time. After 5 years she has had enough and she goes back to the life she ran from all those years ago. I really liked Brenna. I could understand where she was coming from for the most part. I will say that I think she was wrong for keeping Dragon's child from him, but I could understand not wanting a cheating biker for a man. I love that Brenna found the courage to leave her husband. Brenna's character presented a true representation of a battered wife. She felt very real. 

“You want to know why I left?” My voice was wobbling, and I worked hard to control it. “I left because I was crazy about you, and I didn’t want to watch you fuck around. I left because I never wanted to hear that garbage you just spewed all over me.” He raised his eyebrows at me in surprise. “I left because I never wanted to watch you get hurt. I never wanted to visit you in prison. I never wanted to have you come home, smelling like a chick I saw at the club.” He started to interrupt, and I raised my hand to stop him. “I was crazy about you, and you never said anything beyond that night. You never gave any indication you wanted more than that. I wasn’t going to come back and have you tuck me away in some house while you did whatever the fuck you wanted. I didn’t want you to hurt me.” -Brenna

Dragon was a hard, raw, and rough kind of man. He is damn pissed that the one woman he wanted for 5 years not only left in the moring without a goodbye and never looked back, but she had his child and keep her from him for her whole life. Dragon was not your typical book hero. He could be mean as hell at times, but sweet too. He treats Brenna well for the most part and he loves her, but he is so hurt over the things she did to him that he lashes out and he doesn't hold back. At one point he crosses a line that was very hard to read. I'm not justifying his actions, but I did understand where he was coming from. 

“You fuckin’ cunt! You come back here, shaking your college ass, begging for a fuck. You don’t tell me who the fuck you are. So, I wake up the next morning to find you out with your fuckin’ daddy, who happens to be my vice president. That shit is so fucked. It might as well be a death sentence, and you fuckin’ knew it. But as scared as I am, I’m willing to fuckin’ lay it all out. Make you my old lady. Make it right. All of a sudden though, you’re fuckin’ gone. You just leave without one fuckin’ word to me. I’m left here, holding my dick and thanking fuckin’ Christ that I didn’t say anything to Poet. Fuckin’ gone for five years. No one hears from you. Now, you come back, and I find out you had my daughter and didn’t tell me FOR FIVE FUCKIN’ YEARS?” His voice was steadily rising, and by the time he finished, he was roaring in my face. “Some other guy has been playing Daddy to my daughter?”-Dragon

“I can’t believe you had my baby. She was all curled up in here, and I never saw it.” He shook his head. “This is all I’ll ever see, Brenna. This is all I get. Let me look.”-Dragon

Dragon and Brenna have a explosive, wild, and passionate relationship. Where Brenna is shyer in the bedroom, Dragon is a nasty dirty talking bad boy. I love both Brenna and Dragon with Trix. Trix was absolutely adorable, and a daddy's girl from the minute she meets Dragon. One thing that really bugged me about the things that Brenna did was that she let her husband beat her so much that her daughter was scared to death to even breathe, I mean come on she may not want to be an old lady that gets cheated on but to let her daughter be around that. Why didn't she go home sooner? I just didn't get it. I really liked Poet, Brenna's dad. I know Poet has his own book and I am really looking forward to it. Over all this book was a great read that keep me on edge and reeling from emotional whiplash. I couldn't put it down. This is my first time reading Nicole Jacquelyn. I really enjoyed her writing style, and I can't wait to read more from her. 

“I fuckin’ hate this shit, Brenna. I hate knowin’ he’s got any ties to either of ya. I fuckin’ hate that he can still make you fall to your knees in the yard like your legs ain’t got any strength left in ’em. I hate that he got to see my girl growing in you, and he got to see her growin’ after that. I fucking hate it. And it’s your fault.” My fingers tightened in his hair as his last sentence hit me. He squeezed me twice and then lifted his face to mine. “But I don’t hate you. I’ve fuckin’ craved you for years. Watchin’ the stars. Tattooing those constellations on before the ink you used could wear off. I’ll never stop wanting you, even when I’m so pissed I could knock you across a fuckin’ room.”-Dragon
