Review – Taking Turns by J.A. Huss

 

Taking Turns (Turning #1) by J.A. Huss

  • Contemporary Romance
  • Ménage
  • Suits
  • First In A Series

When I first saw the description and cover for Taking Turns, before it released, I wasn’t sure it was my thing. The description was kind of strange and made it sound like a captivity book. For the record, I do not read captivity, slave or true Stockholm syndrome books. They give me the creeps. This is not a captivity book! Once I started seeing the reviews roll in confirming it was not, I decided to read it. Holy. Shit. I was not disappointed.

This review is going to be mostly vague feelings about the book. To give you anything else would surely ruin your enjoyment of the story. I can’t even explain how it begins because it’s something you just have to read. It has everything a great erotica novel needs – lots of dirty bits and loveable characters. Now don’t start thinking this is all heat and no content or story. It has a strong and mysterious storyline that drew me in deep from the first page.

Taking Turns is one of those books that will stick with me. I could feel the book hangover as soon as I finished it. Hell, I considered going back to page 1 and reading it again. To say I enjoyed this book would be a massive understatement. I. Fucking. Loved. It. I know I will re-read this book, and I know it is one of my top reads of the year. I cannot wait for the second book in the series, Turning Back, to release 4.12.17.

Review – Flash Bang by Meghan March

  • For Readers Age 18+

I’ve recently gotten into menage/polyamorous books, and this one did not disappoint. What’s better than an Alpha male protector? TWO of them, of course. This book starts off with our leading lady going about her daily life in downtown Chicago until BAM! All electronics have stopped working and a plane crashes into a skyscraper. This drew me into the story immediately. I was like wtf is happening right now!? I need books to be fast starters, so this definitely delivered. From the very first chapter, Rowan established herself as a strong woman and that never faltered throughout the book. I really loved that about her and how the author held to her strong personality.

The story gets intense from this point while Rowan struggles to survive in a world quickly descending into chaos. Enter Graham and Zach. I can’t decide which one I want to lick first. Both are Alpha, hot and just the right amount of sensitive, from there their personalities are night and day. I loved that they both fulfilled a different personality/partner type that we all fantasize about.

The book flowed seamlessly, and I never found myself mentally drifting away from the story. I definitely want to continue the series to see what happens in such an unknown set of circumstances. This book does end with a cliffy to set up the next installment. I’m not sure if they will all be about Rowan and her men. The next installment is a novella about other characters, that is also a menage. Either way, I’m definitely invested in the future of this story.
