"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

Main feels for the beginning of Turning Back was kind of removed. I didn’t feel any of the characters, and even their smexy scenes seemed a little clinical to me. I didn’t really feel the hotness as I’d expected, and Bric acted like such an arse I wanted to skim his chapters, to tell you the truth.
The story in Turning Back is well written, and the theme of second chance is one I absolutely love. It took a while for me to think that Rochelle actually deserved a second chance, though. Because the way she left Quin behind was just mean. And Bric contributed to that – both because he had never told Quin about Rochelle’s phone call, and because he kept some other things from Quin. To further his own agenda. As usual.
My favorite character in Turning Back was Kitty – Quin’s mom. She was made of amazing, and she took no prisoners. Written in thriple point of view, with Quin, Bric and Rochelle each having their own chapters, I did get to understand their inner workings and motivations quite well. And towards the end, something completely clicked, and I fell for the characters and felt the feels I had been missing at the beginning.
I won't give spoilers but I will say I really appreciated the growth in the characters. I felt their confusion, their anger, and their love. I loved the interactions with sweet baby Adley. It was especially nice to see both Quinn and Bric grow a heart.
Fantastic job JA Huss. You never disappoint me. I'll be a forever Hussy and always one click anything you do.
Do yourself a favor, buy this book.
Quin, Bric, Smith are long-time friends who enjoy multiple partner sex, and run an exclusive gentleman’s club in Denver where the wealthy choose to share their wives and mistresses with each other. These guys and Rochelle were involved in a kinky four-way sex game for three years, until Rochelle left another woman in her stead. While these three may have been “with” Rochelle, they all certainly availed themselves of the club’s bounty as well. Rochelle was the tenth girl in this position in more than a decade, and she lied a life of luxury and decadence, but it wasn’t enough in the long run. Rochelle’s replacement, Chella, captivated Smith who fell hard for her and decided to leave their long-running game for an exclusive relationship. Quin was devastated by Rochelle’s disappearance. He had begun to acknowledge his deeper feelings for her. All of this was revealed in TAKING TURNS, the first book in the series.
And, Rochelle got tired of the game. She loved Quin alone, and she expected he wouldn’t drop out of the game to be with her…and she had bigger reasons for wanting an exclusive relationship: a pregnancy. When Quin learns that Bric’s advice to Rochelle regarding the pregnancy was callous, he’s even further upset. Despite their agreement to never try to reconnect with one of their past lovers, Quin wants Bric to find Rochelle and make things right. Bric…is not interested. He’d rather just find a new girl to share with Quin, but Quin’s despondency drives him away from Bric, the club, and the menage lifestyle.
Chella can’t bear to see Quin suffer any longer, and enlists a freelance bounty hunting friend to find Rochelle, and Bric’s the contact. He’s determined to tell Rochelle to stay away, but when he meets her, and her daughter of unknown paternity–she’s only 6 months old and looks much like Rochelle–he sees a new opportunity. Bric’s not been happy with his sex life since Quin stopped playing the game. Rochelle wants Quin, and Bric wants both of them–so he convinces Rochelle to return and make amends so the three of them can pick up a new game, or make a menage of their own. This appeal s to Rochelle, who’s been lonely, and who wants Quin any way she can have him…now. Because this year of self-imposed exile has convinced her that a life sharing the one you love seems better than a life without the one you love.
Quin isn’t ecstatic when Rochelle returns, however. He’s burning mad that she disappeared without telling him about the pregnancy, and how he missed all the changes of her body and birth of his daughter. They’ve agreed, for now, not to do a paternity test so both Quin and Bric can assume fatherhood. Bric moves Rochelle into his own personal penthouse apartment and fawns all over the baby, and Rochelle. Quin’s not fooled, recognizing that Bric’s playing a deeper game than before, but he also wants Rochelle more than ever. And, as the days go by, he’s experiencing his own need for more than a menage–for an exclusive relationship with his lover and their daughter. But, will Rochelle fall for Bric in the meantime?
This was an interesting story with lots of twists, turns, and sex. There’s no denying the sexual tension, but there’s a lot of intrigue, too, with master puppeteer Bric orchestrating his desired outcome: a longstanding menage with Quin and Rochelle, while also maintaining his ‘bachelor-ish’ status. Rochelle can’t trust him, and Quin sees through him, but Rochelle believes she needs Bric to bring Quin closer, and Quin believes he needs Bric to hold Rochelle’s attention. I liked the emotional swings in the book. I liked how these people aren’t near as callous or carefree as they appear on the surface. I like how they think often about each other, when it seems like they are thinking only of themselves. I liked how Rochelle gave Smith what-for, and how he had to make amends in the end. Because he was a big jerk to her, a lot, for no good reason. And, I liked that the ending is happy, for Quin and Rochelle. Bric, well, he has another book to get his life in order. We got a lot more insight on all the players in this game, and Bric, though he seems monstrously self-centered, is clearly not the bad guy we’ve come to expect. Looking forward to wrapping up this series soon!
