They’re sworn enemies and I’m in the middle.
Both of them claimed me. Had me. Used me. Forgot me.
Except… I don’t remember any of it. I don’t even know who I am or why I’m in this cramped basement apartment with tinfoil covering the tiny windows when my bank account says I have over two million dollars.
I don’t know how I got the stitches on the back of my head, or the scar under my chin, or the ache in my shoulder—but I do know I probably deserved it.
I don’t know why there’s a shotgun in the closet, a sniper rifle under the floorboards, and a pistol under my pillow.
I don’t know why I stay.
I don’t know why I care.
I don’t know why I’m trying to put something back together when it was never whole to begin with.
Until I look at them.
Until they look at me.
Until I touch them.
Until they touch me.
And even though the memories don’t come back.
I know.
I know why I stay.

Angie’s Thoughts:

The Triangle is a hot, sexy and tantalizing dark/suspense read. It will leave you wanting more and hating yourself that you didn’t wait until all the books were out. That ending killed me.

This book is about Christine, Alec and Danny. They used to be a Triangle until things got sticky and one of them left. What he thought happened didn’t happen and the more you read you learn that words can not be trusted and people can’t either.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I love the dynamic between all 3 of these characters. I also love how angsty it was. When you thought you had something figured out think again. There’s so much history between them. They think they know each other but to find out that everything and everyone has changed.

I rated this a 4 because of the parts that were in a different language. It kept taking me out of the story trying to figure out what he was saying. Some of the words you can pretty much guess what they were but others weren’t that easy. Don’t get me wrong I think it’s sexy when a character speaks their native language but it can also be distracting. I really think the audio is going to be hot though and I’m going to listen to it when it releases to see if I have different feelings as I did to reading it.

Overall, though, I loved this book. I’m excited about reading book 2 and see how everything evolves from what I read. Huss/McClain never ceases to amaze me with their writing. It’s beautiful and tragic. Sucking you into the story and keeping you within its pages even long after you read it

About J. A. Huss

J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.
