SUMMARY
ONE GIRL
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.

TWO FRIENDS
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.

THREE SOULMATES
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.

Not everything should come in threes.

JD and Ark are in the porn business. They're planning to take their public sexual escapades to the masses by branching off from their current business partner and going solo. All is going according to plan until the fateful morning where they happen upon a little wisp of a female, who is cold and huddled, trying to get out of the rain. While JD and Ark are supposed to be best friends, there is an underlying rivalry and tension that neither of them wants to touch. So once they lay eyes on Blue, she not only distracts them, but she becomes the planet around which they orbit.

Blue is a girl with issues--big ones. It's clear that she's running from someone or something, but she doesn't want to go down that road with them. In the midst of all this emotional baggage and pretense that something really bad isn't waiting around the corner, they fall into a sexual black hole of sorts. Blue can get her masochistic fix. JD can let out his inner sadist. And Ark…well, he's just a mystery. What ensues is an unconventional relationship between three broken people, all of whom have hidden demons that once exercised will change their lives forever.

First off, there is A LOT of sex in this book. Now this would have been fine if it were a purely erotic novel. However, this book was billed as "a dark suspense" so I was expecting a lot more storyline and little less sex. When I started this book, I wasn't in love with it. I don't know, but there was something missing for me in the first half of this dark suspense. Maybe it was all the intense sex between virtual strangers whom we hadn't gotten to know yet. As a devotee of erotic fiction, I'm all about a well written sex scene, but give a girl a little storyline mixed in. So I put the book down and walked away. After reading another author's work, I came back to this and boy am I glad I did.

The storyline, which I felt was lacking in the first half of the book, came roaring to life in the second half. There were big reveals, lies, suspense and an ending that I never saw coming in a million years. And the bonus scene that Ms. Huss so graciously provided, which gave the reader that big "sigh" was killer!

I became a fan of JA Huss with her Social Media series. It opened me up to her own brand of storytelling, which flies in the face of what one usually expects. For this, I completely adore JA Huss. Now, was THREE, TWO, ONE my favorite? Not by a long shot. Will I continue to read her work? Absolutely! I think this author has something special, and I'm looking forward to reading more from her.
