Jake Tanner is a gay asexual man who finds peace on his small Australian farm and is content to lead a quiet life taking care of his animals. Then a random act of kindness on his part sets in motion a complex series of events that results in him playing the piano in a local pub and meeting Damien Jamieson, a sexy gay biker with a penchant for leather. Damien finds Jake instantly irresistible, but that could be the worst thing for their budding relationship, as Damien is determined to bed the reluctant Jake. However, Jake has no intention of going along with his plan. If there’s a chance for anything between them, Damien will have to figure out how to turn Jake on without scaring him off.

Story Review:

I had a really hard time getting into this story. I think a lot of that is owed to the narrator. See the narration review below for the specifics.

If you want a review of the story, please see PizzyGirl’s review of the eBook.

Narration Review:

So here is a perfect example of a narrator breaking a story.  Jonathan David is pleasant enough to listen to, but he was completely and totally wrong for this story.  First of all, the story is set in Australia. Having a narrator with an American accent is off-putting, to say the least.  Secondly, he just didn’t have the emotion needed to follow a story such as Ace.  Ace is a story of self-discovery and self-awareness.  It is not a lecture on calculus.  Come to think of it; I had calculus teachers much more excited about their subject than David was to read us this story.

Ace on audio was a miss all around for me.
