BOOK BLITZ ** His Turn by JA Huss**

My Review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not many trilogies have books that are all equally as good as each other, however this is one of the few I’ve read where they most definitely are. Each book in the series has a very different feel about it and yet it is also very familiar at the same time.

The story has its very steamy parts and some twisted mind battles, but not a lot of touchy feely romance. But if you’ve read Book 1 and 2 you know that isn’t what this series is about, and definitely isn’t what Bric is about. No I love this book because it ISN’T a bland run-of-the-mill carbon-copy contemporary romance. I love this book because it messes with your mind, it pushes your boundaries and it unleashes your dark desires. But it never feels unsafe, some books make me feel anxious with their darkness but this made me feel free.

His Turn almost felt to be more about Nadia than it did about Bric, but then he featured heavily in Turning Back and I felt we got to know him quite well then. It was also clear, in Turning Back, that Bric was a broken and quite messed up individual. In this book I felt we got to know a little about Elias, or maybe even quite a lot if you read between the lines or listen to his name. I already liked Bric – even though he didn’t want me to - and I soon learnt to love Nadia. She was so strong, feisty and in control, even when she wasn’t.

I chuckle at my reflection in the mirror and stop.

Am I happy?

Hmm. I have to think about that for a moment. 


I’m mostly quite ... satisfied. 

I so wanted him to get a happy ending but Bric himself seemed to not want that (even if Elias did). But then neither did Nadia, and just like Bric you could see a darkness haunting her. These are two beautiful and yet twisted and controlling characters whose only aim is to win and yet you wonder if the truth is that they’re both losing – or perhaps have already lost.

The story is such a layered and complex one and yet also very simple, it’s definitely one that will require a re-read just to absorb it all. There was almost as much action in the last few chapters as in the whole book. Given that there was plenty of story and action throughout tells you just how mind-spinning and revelation packed those last few chapters were.

And if you haven’t read either this book or the whole series then buy it now because it is most DEFINITELY worth it. Oh and make sure you have plenty of free time because once you start reading you won't put the book down until it is finished.

PS - Jordan, I so didn't see that one coming!

I look her body up and down as I circle her.
I smile a devious, deviant, I’m gonna make you sorry you ever started playing this game with me smile.
And then I take her hand.
I lead her to the elevator.
We go up to my apartment.
I tie her wrists together with rope.
Raise her arms above her head.
And chain her to the ceiling.
It’s my turn.

“Why are you so nervous?” I ask Jordan. We’re sitting in Smith’s bar. The table is elaborately set for a nice dinner, our glasses are full of expensive alcohol, and our cocks are happy. Why does he look like shit is about to hit the fan? “She had a good time,” I say, sipping my brandy.
“Yeah,” Jordan says. His eyes are glued to the elevator doors, just waiting for her to come downstairs. “But it was sneaky, ya know?”
“What was sneaky about it?”
He shoots me a look that says, Come on.
“She gave in, Jordan. We didn’t make her do anything.”
“Right.” He sighs. “But you’re what, just pretending we didn’t have that conversation this morning? You know, the one where you said, ‘I’m gonna fuck with her head so bad, she’ll spin like The Exorcist?’”
“It was a joke.” I laugh. “All we did was make her feel good tonight. She loved every fucking minute of it. Even when I choked her with my cock. She couldn’t get enough.”
“That’s because she was drunk on your dick at the time, Bric. But that feeling is gonna wear off and she’s gonna run the entire night through her head, and then—”
“Then she’s gonna realize we know what the fuck we’re doing. That’s all.”
“No,” he says. “She’s gonna realize you’re just playing with her emotions. Like you do with every fucking woman you’ve ever been with.”
“So then she’s gonna up her game, Bric. And this is gonna turn into a mind-fuck shit-fest. I like her,” he says. “Maybe more than like her, OK? I don’t want her thinking I’m like you.”
“You are like me,” I say, getting pissed off. Why the fuck is he sharing her with me if he likes her so much?
But I don’t ask that question.
Because I like her too. Just not in the same way.
“See,” Jordan says.
“See what?” I ask
“That fucking evil grin you’ve got on your face. I know you well enough, Bricman. Well enough to see the Machiavellian wheels turning inside your head. Do not play with her emotions.”
“Why?” I ask, my temper rising. “Is she some kind of fragile flower?”
But then I realize this intrigues me.
“Stop it,” Jordan says. “She’s not a puzzle, OK?”
“Then why are we even playing?”
He huffs out some air. Runs his fingers through his still-wet hair. “Because she’s not…” He trails off.
“She’s not what?” I ask. What the fuck is wrong with him tonight?
“She’s not my type.”
“OK,” I say, not really understanding.
“I mean I’m not really her type.”
“Hmm,” I say. “Do you love her?”
“No,” he says. “Definitely not. But I like her. I could see myself playing with her for a long time. And if you fuck it up, that won’t happen. You, of all people, understand how fucking hard it is to get a girl you can trust in this game. One who just gets you, ya know? We get each other, Bric. I realize it’s only been a few weeks, but we know each other. I just like her. And we have an understanding. I get to boss her around and be a dick, but she knows I’m not a dick, right? She knows I’ll show up the next day and treat her nice and give her a gift. She knows I’m just playing. We’re playing.”
“It’s a game. Same as this,” I say.
“Dude, come on,” he says, almost fully exasperated now. “You are a sick motherfucker, OK? You know this, right?”
“Then why am I even here?”
“Because we’re good together, ya know. Not great. Yet,” he adds. “Not what you had with Smith and Quin, obviously. But we understand each other. We work well as a team. She liked that up there.”
“So what’s the problem?”
“The problem is you’re in a weird place right now and I’m afraid you’re gonna take it out on Nadia. Don’t do that, OK?” He stares at me. “Just be…”
“Just be your back-up?” I ask, huffing out a laugh.
He shrugs. But that’s it. That’s what he wants. Don’t overpower him. Don’t take her away from him. Don’t make her rethink her strategy. Just help him keep her.
It takes me a minute to decide if I’m angry or not.
I decide I’m not. I don’t give two fucks about this Nadia girl. And my goal really was to break her. So I shrug. “Fine,” I say. “You want a wingman. Fine. I’ll help you out, Jordan. But when I need a favor, I’ll expect the same in return.”
