WARNING! Enter this series with extreme caution! High chance of getting burnt on the heat that comes out of these pages!
The Turning Series revolves around three men – Elias Bricman, Smith Baldwin and Quin Foster – who have been friends for a very long time and have, during that time, found that they enjoy sharing women. Not just sharing them but playing games with them…everything is a game. That is, until it is not.
Taking Turns finds theses men in a confusing situation when the woman they have spent the last three years with has vanished and someone else is in their place. Chella believes she knows what she is letting herself in for. She needs the pleasure and pain that these men can inflict on her. Quin wants nothing to do with her, Bric doesn’t care either way, and Smith finds that he cannot stay away. Something draws him to her but what secrets is she hiding?
Turning Back sees the return of Rochelle, the woman who broke Quin’s heart and left him in a world of pain for a year. Why has she come back? Smith wants her to leave before she hurts his friend all over again, Quin relies on anger to get him through the time ahead, and Bric seems to know more than he is letting on. With Smith no longer playing can Bric and Quin find a way to bring Rochelle back into the game?
His Turn is all about Bric. At a loose end he finds a new partner to play games with, Jordan Wells. Jordan introduces him to Nadia, who although is not anything like either Chella or Rochelle, she is more his type. The only problem is that they both want the same thing – control! Are they all playing the same game or have each got their on set of rules?
I absolutely loved this series from start to finish. I was a bit unsure, as I’m not overly into the BDSM Club scene books but having read numerous series by this author before I couldn’t not give it a try. The club is not highly focused on, the stories are more about the main characters and the relationships they have and build together. The subject of sex and sharing is very open within these books so, if that is not your thing or you are adverse to three/foursomes, then they may not be for you.
The build up of the characters is fantastic. I’ll be honest, if I had read His Turn first I would not like Bric’s character at all. However, knowing his backstory and having seen the softer side to him in the previous books gave me knowledge of the character that explained why he did what he did. I think may favourite is Smith. I can just picture him with his two rat dogs and the puppy, he really will make a great father if they ever have the chance 🙂
The end of this series leads nicely onto the next – Jordan’s Game – which I will starting in the New Year!
Taking Turns – I’ve never been afraid of the dark…but that doesn’t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can’t have, but I should’ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side. Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn’t expect to like them. (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33192096-taking-turns)
Turning Back – I lived in the dark for three years. My whole world revolved around the whims and happiness of three men. It was just a trip into the forbidden. A way out of a bad situation and forward into nothingness. Quin, with his easy smile and charming good looks. He was always there for me… Until he wasn’t. Smith, and his dispassionate attention. He was never there for me and he never regretted it. Bric, the one who listened, but only to himself. Self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and self-serving. He was never the one I wanted. And now he might be the only one I have left. It was good while it lasted, I guess. But it could’ve been so much more. It could’ve been so much better. And that’s why I’m turning back.

His Turn – 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. (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34818548-his-turn)
