Taking Turns J. A. Huss Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
I've never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn't mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can't have, but I should've thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world.
Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes.
Number Two is mostly gentle. But it's the other side of him I like best. The wild side.
Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg.
It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That's it. That's all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden.
I just didn't expect to like them.

User reviews about this book
The book isn’t really a three-some book. The characters aren’t built up well because of all the pov chapters. The plot is very confusing and the ending is abrupt.
Probably one of the hottest books I have ever opened.
Good but confusing
I had this one in my library for a while, and finally decided to give it a try. The story could have been so much better. There were so many parts that were sooo confusing. Took me a while to separate the guys. Kept confusing them. Seems like some parts of the story would jump, not really explain things. Will give the second book a try.
Wheb fantasy meets reality
I didn't know what to expect...but it surely wasn't to fall in love with all three of The Turning Point Club men. But seriously, they bring fantasy to life in all the ways! This was my first book by this author and I can't wait for book two!
Sexy, complex, emotional fun and sometimes down right dirty story. Loved it
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.
Making a quad - 5 stars
A Review of Taking Turns by JA Huss
Making a quad - 5 stars
I was intrigued by the teasers for this book long before it came out. I saw teasers of what was to come and the more I saw, the more I wanted to read this book. It is a look into a side of a woman that isn't afraid of the dark and wants to go a little deeper into it. There is mystery galore throughout the book. We know that Chella takes the place of Rochelle, but we have no idea why. We can guess, we can try and figure it out, but that's all it really is. Guesstimating.
So, we have to move on from Rochelle and figure out what Chella's end point is. Is she there to set up the guys? Is she there to be a replacement for the one that got away? It's a nasty game these beautiful three men play. They each get 48 hours with her every week and she gets one day to herself. When Chella is first introduced to the story, she keeps quite when Quinn comes to her at midnight and screws her in the dark without knowing that she is NOT Rochelle. When he finally figures out that he just did the bump and grind with a total stranger, he freaks out and ties her up, leaving her in a closet, while he calls the other two guys for an emergency meeting.
All four of these characters are very well defined and fleshed out (maybe not until the very end, but still), making them all too believable. You are going to love this rollercoaster of a read — with twists and turns galore and more than one loopty-loop thrown in for good measure. I don't want to give too much of the story away or ruin it for anyone else, but man oh man, how twisted can people be? And I'm NOT talking about these four characters or the club the guys are members of. This has more to do with Chella's parents and what she had to live through. She is more like Smith than she ever imagined and you find yourself on the edge of your seat hoping these two broken, lovable people make it through this process in one piece. I can hardly WAIT for the next book in the series. I know what I hope happens, but we all know wishing and hoping doesn't always give us what we want, but I am looking forward to the possibilities. See you on the next one.

"Sinful, sexy, heart-breaking, heart-soaring.
is an epic journey of passion & It will leave you wanting for more!!!!
Fantastic. Sexy as hell! Wow!! HOTTTT. Can't wait for book 2!
I was reluctant to read this story. I've read many JA Huss books and have liked 19/20 of them. But at first glance this was just too taboo for me. I'm not a fan of threesomes (I still haven't read 321) so initially I figured I'd skip the Turning Point series too. But then a voice said "just a peek ". Oh boy! It was more than a peek. It was SO good.
If you're like me and trying to figure out if it's for you, then here are a few things to know about the book. It is a love story. 90% of the book is plot, character development, friendship, and falling in love. The other 10% is some good (and taboo) sex. Everything is consensual, though I'll say part of the game is some manipulating each other.
POV: 4. All main characters
Writing: 5/5 As always the writing is flawless. I always know what's going on, who is saying/doing what. There's description without just dragging. I don't like when an author uses two pages to describe a bedroom. JA doesn't do that, yet my imagination gets it. Good balance of plot, characterization, romance, intrigue, and sex.
Editing: 2/5 I wish JA Huss would do another round of editing. The grammar police in me was screaming through the book.
I can't wait for book 2!
This story was so completely outstanding I'm practically breathless! I haven't read a book like this EVER! The sexual pleasures that jump from page to page. The tension build up, the escaping of lust & passion will send chills over your entire body.
One sexually deprived successful and intelligent woman and three very wealthy distinguished business partners enter this arrangement. A very odd, different and unique type of bond. This kind of relationship is not for most, does it even exist lol, but for the four individuals involved giving each that kind of pleasurable euphoria along with the ever changing rules, personal drama, and just the simple dynamics of them all is blissful. It's beyond sexual explorations in writing, this book is a orgasmic roller coaster with a bit of mind-fu&@ing add in one hell of a ménage à quad & put a cherry on top!
I was a little confused at first with all the characters, but very quickly was enraptured by each POV. Loving the details each main character shares. OH and the ending... I personally hate a rushed ending, give me more! This one book gave it! You have a FULL unbelievable captivating story that fills in every oozing juice detail, but then you get a little more with another charters perspective THEN a epilogue (WAHOO) THEN the author herself adds in a little more!!! You will be just as excited with anticipation for the next book in this series but you will not be left unsatisfied in the slightest bit. -Pop Fizz Clink Read
