Taking Turns by J.A. Huss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to say this book was totally not what I expected. To be honest I thought it was going to be just a sexy read lots of sex and an okay story which sometimes I am fine with.
But I was extremely surprised to find out it was so much more than that. I have read quite a few menage stories, some just smutty some with really great stories and complex characters. Taking Turns has it all. This is my first J.A. Huss read and I plan on checking out more of her work.
Smith, Quinn and Bric are friends who are invested in a sex club/restaurant/nightclub that is by invitation membership only they also like to share women. They agree on roles and give the woman they agree upon a contract of which everyone follows but its also a bit of a game. Most of the "relationships" only last a few months. Their current relationship however has lasted three years, but Rochelle seems to have had enough and decides to leave them. Rules of the game none of the men can try to find her which leaves Quinn devastated because he commuted the ultimate mistake and fell in love with her. Rochelle leaves them with a replacement Chella. Chella is a girl from a wealthy background but she has a secret she wants what Rochelle has the attentions of three men. But we can tell right from the start it is so much more than that. Chella wants to be loved and accepted for who she is flaws and all and to not be made to be ashamed of her wants and needs. Immediately we get the feeling one of the guys is a bit more interested in Chella than the rest. The whole story kept me glued to the page from understanding the rules of the game to figuring out if Chella was meant to be with Smith and if he was truly ready to give himself over to another person. His character surprised me most of all I just loved him!
I am excited to read the next book in the series as it will be about why Rochelle left and how she comes back but will it be to Quinn hopeless romantic in love, Bric or the sexual dominant who doesn't believe in love? or both of them. Looking forward to finding out where J.A. Huss takes that story. I loved the "Dear Reader" from the author very unique. I highly recommend this read, sexy, complex, emotional, fun and sometimes down right dirty.
