Ace Journey is a Texan that calls himself a confirmed bachelor.  He’s at a function when he sees Gabriella Appleby.  They had an altercation prior to this function.  Gabby is a plus-size model from New Jersey who has a mother that she takes care of.  I can identify with Gabby in that I’m not model thin and I’ve always taken care of my parents.  And I can almost understand her attitude problem.

Ace has come to New Jersey on business and Gabby has agreed to meet him at a Jewish Deli.  I love the name Patricia gave the deli – Rumpernooks.  I would love to know the type of research Patricia may have done for this scene.  Gabby is showing Ace the difference between bagels from Texas and a true Jewish bagel.

Patricia makes Gabby’s mother something of a clinging vine.  You have to feel sorry for Gabby.  My own mother was different from Gabby’s.  My mother had a severe stroke and it was a lot of time and energy to work a full time job and then to be her caregiver.  I had a good support system at my job.  I was able to take the time needed to see to her care.  But reading Patricia’s story, Gabby doesn’t have that support.  Plus I get the impression that the mother likes being the center of attention.

Patricia has made a teaser of a book trailer on YouTube, http://youtube/UH7Hkl9a5cg. Now this book does cover spanking and there is a quick scene in the trailer.  There are explicit scenes but they are done tastefully.  I also love that each book is a stand-alone since I haven’t read the first book yet.  If you haven’t read any of this series yet, you can stop by Patricia’s web site,, to check out what books are out now and which book is coming out this Fall.  I hope you will give this series a try.  I’m looking forward to reading the others.

  1. Thank you so much for having me here today, Lynn, and for the generous review. I'm so glad you liked Ace-High Flush.

    Rumpernooks was a real Jewish deli in New Jersey. My husband, who's originally from NJ, used to go there with his family. Alas, it's no longer in business. My experience with Jewish delis comes from going to some of the best Jewish delis in the US, in Los Angeles, where I grew up. I'm proud to say, I can tell the difference among bagels. :)

    1. I'm sad to say that I have a gluten allergy but I would have loved to try one and see the difference. My dad loves bagels so maybe I will have to live vicariously through him.
      Thank you for introducing me to a new series. I can't wait to read the rest.

  2. Ace is my absolute favorite Journey man. They're all great guys with a strong moral code, but I go for the older gents, so if we're holding a contest--I vote for Ace. Great review!
