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.

What a great ending to this series.......... If your looking for warm and fuzzy. You are in the wrong place. LOL!! I haven't been a fan of Elias Brickman's since Taking Turns. Everyone once in awhile I would see a glimmer of hope from him and then he would pull the a**hole card again. Well let me tell you he was a giant a**hole in this book. But by the end he grew on me. Again JA Huss takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions with a whole lot of HOLLY H*LL moments. Another great read by Huss!!!!
Good god, what a read this has been. From the opening line to the last word, I’ve not had one settled moment. Elias ‘Bric’ Bricman, owner of The Turning Point is one messed up individual. But, Nadia Wolfe a ballerina is his match in so many ways. He’s older and wiser, Nadia is only twenty-three and believes she’s a Dom just like Bric. He sets out to prove to her just how wrong she is. There’s a lot of hot, filthy dirty sex, a lot of dominating. Some almost M/M which was damned hot too, even though that’s not my thing. Jordan the third party of their menage is a lawyer and not as well skilled as Bric, but he’s got a plan that neither of them knows about. I was worried Bric and Nadia would end up completely obliterated by each other’s game, but in the end, Elias’s was the worst. His fiendish desire to win the game at all costs nearly cost him everything. This has been one heck of a ride but I loved the way Julie brought the series to a resounding finale.
Great book! Fantastic series!
Holy mother of all mothers! I feel like I just got put through the wringer big time. So many emotions spent and man, I feel like I got whiplash in a few places. But the best part is the ending. Every time she gets me at the end. I say this over and over in all my reviews for this author but I can't help it...she leads me in one direction and before I know it, I'm heading in another. I never know what to expect or how she's going to take me there and I'm addicted! Sorry, not sorry, but I'm not going into detail about the book. It's an experience best had going in blind. It will test your limits but the reward at the end is always worth it for me. I will be waiting, not so patiently for the next book. ARC provided by author.
In characteristic style, author J.A. Huss delivers a highly combustible, dramatic big finish to her Turning Series with Elias Bricman’s story, His Turn. Throughout the series, Elias (Bric) Bricman has been the dark horse in the game he plays with his best friends, Quin and Smith, but in His Turn, we get a whole new picture of this complicated man. There is a reason Elias prizes his privacy. It is the same reason he is controlling, distant, aloof, and dangerous. It is also the same reason he hides behind that aloofness. Elias is vulnerable, and his inner doubts multiple as he seemingly loses everything when Smith, Quin, Chella, Rochelle and his little pumpkin, Adley, leave the game. They move on to normal, adult lives. Bric’s desperate loneliness and emptiness shattered me. His longing for Quin and Adley is so desperately sad. He is being pulled under by a whirlpool of self-pity and sorrow. He’ll go under, drown even, if not thrown a life preserver. With Bric’s friends out of the picture, Jordan, tries to pull Bric into his game by offering Nadia, a beautiful, stubborn, ballerina. She and Jordan seem to be a fantastic couple, so Jordan’s insistence that Bric join them in a game, is odd. I didn’t warm up to Jordan in the prior books, and I never understood his role in the story. He is like a “wannabe”; he desperately wants to be in the inner circle with the kings of the playground. In his sadness, Bric acquiesces to Jordan’s charms, and that made me fear for Bric’s livelihood. Even after the explanation of Jordan’s behavior, I question his motivation. What of Nadia? Her grace and talent are matched by her anger and baggage. She is a mystery. Even she questions her windfall of landing a significant position in the Mountain Ballet Company. How? Who? Why? I questioned her motivations and ultimate plans. Her inner dialogue and gamesmanship made her seem like the ultimate puppet master. Is she a spiteful dominatrix or is she being played? His Turn is a smolderingly sexy game of chess. With each move, one of the players calls check, but who will ultimately call checkmate? What is the prize? For readers of this series, the prize is another fantastically moving story of yearning, family and friendship. Each book brings deeper understanding of and emotions for the characters involved. Heartbreaking, soul baring, and ultimately hopeful, The Turning Series and especially His Turn dragged me through the ringer and left me spent and satisfied.
Well, Bric may think he wields the ultimate mind f*ck, but I disagree. That honor goes to J.A. Huss. My mind and my emotions are still reeling after reading His Turn. This whole series has been one giant emotional roller coaster… but oh, what a ride! If this were an actual ride, I'd already be lining up to ride it again, and bumping people out of my way to get to the front. I honestly cannot imagine a better way to wrap up this series. With an intriguing plot, extraordinary writing, extremely vivid imagery, and characters that just jump off the page, this book certainly checks every box I can think of. Authentic, engaging, and passionate, these characters completely draw you into the story, and you just can't help but be obsessed with these characters’ lives. This book is gut wrenching and heartbreaking yet hopeful and oddly romantic. Impassioned and honest, it’s a truly impactful read, and one I would highly recommend. *I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.
