Poet and Amy's story...

Patrick Gallagher’s future was mapped out—and it didn’t include Amy Henderson or the IRA.

She was everything he’d never wanted. Too young. Too naïve.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t help but be fascinated by the girl who took refuge in his old bedroom, staying with his mum more often than not.

She looked like a Renaissance painting and argued like a solicito

2–I'm conflicted–Stars

I'm not sure how I want to rate this book. There's a part of me that wants to give it 5 stars, as I was completely engrossed by the story, while another part of me wants to give it 1 star due to the hero's jerkiness and cowardly behavior, the plot holes, and the HEA ending.

The quote below pretty much sums up my feelings about the hero!

To be fair, this book brought out a lot of emotions out of me. Unfortunately, not all of them are positive. If I had been the type of reader who would 5-star book just based on emotions this book has been able to pull out of me, I would have easily easily given this a full 5. But my feelings are a bit more complicated than that.

This is the story of Poet, the VP of the ACES MC who we met in book 1 when his daughter Brenna returned home after suffering in an abusive marriage. I'll admit, I couldn't really remember much about him other than he was Irish and never had an old lady or anyone special in his life but that's all you need to know really, you could definitely read this as a stand alone.

This book was 30 years of torture, for the characters and me as a reader. This isn't a romance, it's a sad fucking story with hardly enough good at the end to help heal the wounds it inflicts.

I discovered this book in the Amazon discussion forums (RIP) and I've had it for a while. I was definitely interested...after all, it's was touted as super angsty so that's a win-win for me. But...I wasn't sure if I wanted to read the books before it and ~sigh~ it's another motorcycle club.

Poet is def on my shit list for being one of the worst male leads in have ever read! He is a cheating and disloyal husband and I am shocked that the author gave him a happy ending! There are some people as a reader I don't think deserve to have their own stories unless the author can show the characters remorse,love and show redeeming qualities about them. I can say that in my opinion the author did not achieve it with Poet but made me dislike him even more he was all talk and contradictions I h ...more

Before he was Brenna's father, before he became known as 'Poet', the vice president of the Aces MC, Patrick Gallagher was just a boy, working on cars, taking care of his Mum in Ireland. Craving Resurrection is Poet's story, a journey that spans decades, a story I'll not soon forget. 

I've devoured every single book in Nicole Jacquelyn's Aces MC series, loved each and every one. With that said, it'd take an entire constellation to house the number of stars I'd like to give Craving Resurrection. Th

When I read a book, I want to fall in love with the characters. I need to connect to them. I want to feel their loyalty and love for one another

In this book, I only had strong positive feelings for one character. One hint who it's not. Patrick..... I really hate you. There was not a single redeeming quality about him that I liked.
I hate him so much that it makes this book a story I really wish I could unread. His decisions and actions..... I just am at a loss for words. I just don't/can't under

SELF NOTE: This book teaches you that PERPERTRATORS ARE NEVER PUNISHED AND GET AWAY WITH THEIR CRIMES!!! "You can shit on everybody and pay absolutely no consequences for your actions" All the horrible deeds you inflicted on other people" are never to be paid for and you as a reward with get your HEA!

Where is the morality here? Even if this is a fictional story, it still needs some redeeming factors and realism... with a Disney lala lala HEA? Are you calling this realism?

5 Lovely Stars



Warning: This is the 4th in the series. Read them in order, even though this one goes back in time to tell the back story of Poet. You still need to read them in order.

So lovely. Smooth. Seamless. Yet so harsh. That is is this book. It is full of emotion and heartbreak and pain. The pain of separation. The pain of unfulfilled promises.

Poet is the VP of the Aces MC Club. We know him from the other books, but here...we get to know him. We know he grew up in Ireland and then moved to

02/01/2015 --

This series has been a bit hit or miss for me. I sit and wait to purchase and read based on what a few of my GR friends have to say. I know they won't be able to resist. This one is getting tons of chatter. Things like it is good, but some of the situations are uncomfortable and may be triggers for some. I'm not sure it should matter. This story couldn't have been told without being uncomfortable.

I will read this one again. Know it. And, I think this author has hit her stride.

When I read Craving Constellations in July of 2013, Nicole gave me just enough pieces to the puzzle that is Patrick Gallagher for me to put two and two together and assume I’d come up with four. I realized quickly that Poet’s lady and Brenna’s hippie savior were one in the same, and I concocted a number of possible stories in my head to explain her absence from his day-to-day life, settling on what we’ll refer to as the sidepiece scenario. After having gotten to know both Patrick and his Amy, I ...more

3.5 stars

The story was engaging, I was definitely pulled in and for that I'll give it 3.5 stars. This is supposed to be a romance but it read more like a cautionary tale of what type of man women need to run the hell away from. Granted it is a MC story so a messy gritty story is to be expected, I was in the mood for that and this book did deliver on that front.

So let's talk about Patrick.......

From the beginning I found little appealing about this character. He was a massive sexist pig with so

Loved it!
Didn't know that I would enjoy Poet's story as much as I did. The triggers for some (view spoiler) were in context and the beauty of the story outweighed those 'oh no' moments.

Adored Peg, And loved the entwined alternate POV scene with the car sale from a previous book. Nice to read the other side of the story :)

This book has made it as one of my favourites for 2015!

This was a beautiful love story between a young teenage girl, brought up with shit for parents, and a lonely old lady who brought her into her home. They care for each other deeply. Support each other when needed. Then the old lady's stupid ass son, Poet, fucks it all up. Fuck you Poet, you moron.

The fourth book in the Aces MC series features Amy, a young woman who’s had a crappy life, and Patrick, the son of the woman who takes Amy under her wing when her parents essentially abandon her in Ireland. Then, things get complicated with the IRA and a bittersweet (emphasis on the bitter) romance happens.

I find this to be one of those books that difficult to review without giving some spoilers, so if you like to avoid those, I’d skip to the Bottom Line. But I digress...

Hated Poet to such a degree that I wish I never would have read this book. He's a cheating bastard that never should have gotten a HEA with the women he loved. *rolls eyes* I hated that the author made Amy a doormat toward the end of the book. She wasn't a doormat and it sucked to have to watch her turned into one because the author had to give this couple a HEA. The author cheated Amy's character by writing a male lead so unredeemable but still making her end up with him. I hated that Amy tried ...more

I LOVE this series and love Nicole for always going out of the normal MC 'type' of reads and giving us some of my most memorable shock and awe reactions. I was so stoked to read this and I know MANY, MANY readers who just didn't like what went down. I did my best not to have that persuade me.
