eARC BOOK REVIEW...Craving Absolution (The Aces #3) by Nicole Jacquelyn

Title:  Craving Absolution (The Aces #3)
Author:  Nicole Jacquelyn
Publication Date:  July 21st 2014

Plot:  Farrah Miller and Cody “Casper” Butler have a longstanding relationship that both refuse to discuss.

It isn’t romantic.

It may not even be classified as a friendship.

Casper’s been saving Farrah from herself for longer than he’d care to admit, watching silently as she drowned herself in alcohol. Then, when she finally got her act together, he left. He told himself he was giving her time to sort herself out. He tried to give her space.

But getting shot in the chest can change a man’s perspective, and Casper’s done waiting.

When he shows up on her doorstep one night, everything changes.

He’s the man who’s seen her at her very worst.

She’s his weakness.

He runs when things get hard.

She never lets anyone see below the surface and is terrified of being abandoned.

He knows it’s a long shot, that there’s a good chance she’ll never drop her guard for him—but he has to try. Because a life with Farrah is exactly what he wants—even if he has to fight her for it.

 My Review 

☆I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆


Okay so, I'll be the first to admit: I was highly skeptical of this read due to disappointed expectations in bk 2, but Craving Absolution did manage to redeem the series for me.


♥So what made me change my mind?: ♥ Cody/Casper!! *duh* I had a longtime infatuation with the prestigious school attendee who had the world by the tips of his fingers and how that all changed to him ending up in a MC club. Luckily for me, this book answered it all without overdoing all of the typical biker clichés and making me fall head over heels for resilient hero.♡♡


So the story:

In a nutshell: Two, lost broken souls with an affiliation of a lack of trust in anyone that comes their way. One fighting to find her place in this world. And the other, looking to make sense of his.

But basically:

✿Farrah Miller's (a.k.a “Ladybug”) life is going down in flames.


With a jaded past, hidden façade, and a very select group of friends, Farrah lives her life from day to day with her walls always up. That is, with the exception of Cody of course.

♥♥Cody “Casper” Butler, is like Farrah in some retrospect,


and burdens his own load of loss and tragedy, but unlike her, turns to the Aces MC to find solace and  refuge from the chaos.

He’s like the guardian angel of Farrah, always keeping an eye on her and always saving her from herself but still learning how to battle his own demons to save his own self.


But how can you truly rescue someone who’s hellbent on self destructing all by herself?

ESPECIALLY, when it's the woman that you're unconditionally and irrevocably in love with?


Now with the girl of his dreams spiraling out of control and into oblivion... will Casper ever get through to her and make her see that there’s more to this world and meanwhile keep his loyalty to the Aces MC?

And Farrah. With so much letdowns and disappointments in her life, will she finally let go and give trust to the one person who could possibly break her?


One thing’s for certain: A lot can go down in an MC read as love, danger, deceit, and sparks of old and new possibilities barrage their way into Casper and Farrah’s life.

What could this mean for Casper and Farrah?

Will the lovebirds get their coveted HEA?.. Will they ever grasp the exoneration they so desperately crave? And most importantly, will they ever find peace and redemption in it? Read and you will find out!

#A great, great addition to the Aces MC! Definitely made me have an epiphany and not second guess Nicole Jacquelyn, that’s for sure! Had me on a literal emotional rollercoaster with all of the high and low upheavals and tingling in my panties with all of the sexual tension and frustration! And then when Casper and Farrah came together, it was PURE magic! Loved it! ♥♥

Nicole Jacquelyn is the mom of two little girls and a full time college student. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. At eight years old, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told people she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve her answer changed- to author. By the time she was eighteen, when people asked her what she wanted to do with her life, she told them she really wanted to be a writer- but the odds of that happening were so slim that she’d get her business degree “just to be safe”. Her dreams stayed constant. First she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year- with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool, she sat down and wrote a story.
