"I can't even put into words how much I loved this book and I cannot wait for His Turn in July. I've said this once, but I'll say it again. Taking Turns and Turning Back are top favorite reads for me this year. You HAVE to read them!! 5+ amazing stars!" ~ Morgan Cross - Goodreads Reviewer
"The dynamic between the three of them was like none other...the trust, the caring, the LOVE, it was easy for them...like they were all built to be that way...until they weren't. I promise you will love this story as much as the first one if not more...I know the next story will be amazaballs as well. #Thriples #NoMoreGames #Pumpkin" ~ Lauren Lascola-Lesczynski - Goodreads Reviewer
"I really must say this, JA Huss writes the most incredible scorching hot menages of all the time! Sensuality at its best!!!" ~ Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
"These three men, Smith, Bric and Quin are so complex, I wouldn't call them damaged and broken, but they do carry a lot of baggage around and the choices they've made make sense to them, it's how they manage and protect themselves. And the way they protect and love each other is a true testament to the superb talent of JA Huss. I have never experienced a story where the male characters sacrificed and hurt so much for each other." ~ Diane Dykes - Goodreads Reviewer

So that left just Bric and Quin, and Quin has been a shell of himself ever since Rochelle left because he's in love with her. And her sudden departure pretty much gutted him. Then, suddenly Rochelle is back. And as happy as Quin is to see her, he's mad and hurt and doesn't trust her. How could she just leave him the way she did? We get the answers to those questions, but in classic Julie style, the answers are interwoven throughout the book and revealed little by little through scenes and conversations held between not just Quin and Rochelle, but the other characters too, and we see the puzzle pieces slowly falling into place.
Julie delves really deep into the character development of Quin, Bric and Rochelle in this book. I already loved Quin from book 1 because of his easygoing and lovable personality, but Bric was pretty much an enigma. I could never get a grasp on his true personality or what his motives were. That becomes pretty clear in this book. There were plenty of moments where I loved Bric to death, and others where I just wanted to choke him for the games he played. And no, I don't mean "that game" I mean other games he played to manipulate situations to get the end results he wanted.
Getting back to "that game" Bric manages to talk both Rochelle and Quin into starting a new game. But obviously it's a very different game because now it's just two guys and the girl, so is that just a ménage a trois? Will the same rules work that were used in the previous game? Things are starting to get confusing, lines are getting crossed, emotions are high, and there aren't even supposed to be any emotions involved, because this is just a game, right?
The sex, oh the sex. I have no clue how Julie manages to keep writing sex scenes that are just as hot and exciting as the first time I read one of hers, but she does. Holy wow can she write a sex scene! I think the scenes in this book were even hotter than the first because there aren't as many players involved, and they felt way more intimate. And I guess they would be, since Quin and Bric have been playing the game for more than a decade. They know each other inside and out, they know exactly the moves to make and how to feed off each other in each scene. And they aren't afraid to cross the lines, to touch each other in the ways they know will drive each other mad with lust, the ways that will make the game the hottest it can be. And holy crap, hot it was!! Damn...just damn...
What I love about each and every book that Julie writes, is she weaves some of the most intricate and convoluted stories. She lays the groundwork, drops hints all throughout the story that makes me start guessing as to what is going on, and then by the time the books ends, I haven't guessed anything correctly and I'm left with the WTF look on my face, saying, "I wasn't expecting THAT to happen" or "whoa, did she really go there?" She definitely loves to mess with our heads all the way through each book.
So even though Smith is out of the "game" he's still an integral part of the team, and his scenes in the book were some of my absolute favorite. I had no clue this dude could be so damn funny! Talk about someone doing a complete 360 from how we saw him in the first book. Chella has obviously had a huge impact on this guy's life! I still sit back and chuckle at some of his antics and the things that came out of his mouth a week after finishing the book!! But as funny as he came across in this book, he made it very clear that he is still very invested in his two friends' lives and has their backs no matter what.
Book 3 is going to be very interesting. It's going to hard to wait for the conclusion to this series!
Rochelle left the game without warning to the players. Quin was especially hurt by this as he was actually falling for her. Falling in love with not part of the game. It wasn’t supposed to be part of the equation. So when things got messy Rochelle left than having to deal with the fallout. But what nobody anticipated was the secret she held on to and only told a select few. She left town never expecting to be back.
Months and months go by and Quin is miserable. They have a new game to play with Chella but he’s just not interested. When Bric sees what’s happening to his friend he’s determined to find out what happened to Rochelle and convince her to come back.
What happens when Rochelle does return? Will Quin be able to forgive her? The secret she’s been holding on for so many months will be out and how will the effect everyone? Can she continue in the game with now that so many things have changed? She has deep feelings for Quin and will she be ready to open herself back up? And Bric… how does he fit into the equation. Can the two men have her both? The game is about to change and nobody expected this game changer!! Turning Back is one HOT read you cannot miss! JA Huss does it again! Another amazing 5 star read!!
Turning Back is a different kind of love story, filled with angst, regrets, incredibly hot sex and two new dads that made my ovaries explode. We get to know a lot more about each of these characters, who already had me intrigued in Taking Turns and now have my heart beating faster. I still can’t decide which of the three men I’m most in love with, but I think Quin might have the slightest edge over Bric, although that distance might be measured in millimeters. And of course, there is F*ing Smith (who reminds this fan a lot of F*ing Ford)!
I can’t wait for the third (and final?) book in the series, His Turn, to come out, and might have to do a total re-read while I’m waiting because I can’t get enough of this game.
