Review: Three, Two, One (321) A Dark Suspense by JA Huss

Series: Stand Alone
Release Date: January 28, 2015
Publisher: JA Huss
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Rating: ★★★★★ 



Battered, barefoot, and huddled under a bookstore awning in the pouring rain, Blue only knows one thing. After fifteen months of captivity, finally… she is free.


Self-made millionaires JD and Ark are not out to save anyone when they stumble upon a wet and shivering girl one early Sunday morning. But when you sell sex for a living and salvation rings your bell… you answer the call.


After years of searching, love lifts the veil of darkness, and three people—with three very big secrets—find themselves bound together in a relationship that defies the odds.

Or does it?

Love. Lust. Sex.

This trinity might be perfection… but not everything should come in 3’s.

WARNING: This is a STANDALONE non-traditional M/F/M ROMANCE with a non-traditional ending.

I'm just going to put it right out there - This is the kind of book Huss needs to be writing. Always.

If you are a fan of JA Huss, the fact that she is very smart with her plots is no news to you. If you've yet to read her, you should know that nothing is ever what it seems.  Each and every time you think you figure something out, she will show you up in some way.  Her stories are very tactical and 321 is no different.

Ark and JD are best friends, building an empire in specialized pornography.  They live a life a lot of young hot blooded males would dream of. Money and women at your fingertips, at all times.  They make the perfect pair of complete opposites.  Ark is contained, controlled, focused.  JD is impulsive, easy going yet volatile. 

Neither man is easy to love, nor are they easy to dislike.  It's a strange feeling to dislike so much of what they do, yet really feel for and understand so many parts of them.  They are not one dimensional characters in any way.

Their life is on track. Until they come across one battered barefoot woman in the rain. 

Blue is a very interesting character as well.  She's layered. She's broken in some ways, so strong in others, needy but full of love and trust.

The relationship that Huss builds between them is like no other I've read.  It's not my first M/M/F read but it's the first one that came together in such an intricate and interesting way.  You can't take any of the little details for granted because they all end up meaning so much.

321 is not just a story about three people and their ultimate love for each other though.  There is so, so much more to the story.  It's a complicated tale of loss, drugs, secrets, lies, trafficking, murder, pain and the mental effects all those things take on a person.

It's even more than all those things though.  It's about consequences, huge ones, for horrible deeds. Tragic things and the guilt that comes along with them and what that guilt leads you to do.

I can't even...I don't know how to put into words what this book is, except fucking good. It's just fucking good.
