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 never wanted to be a writer and she still dreams of that elusive career as an astronaut. She originally went to school to become an equine veterinarian but soon figured out they keep horrible hours and decided to go to grad school instead. That Ph.D wasn’t all it was cracked up to be (and she really sucked at the whole scientist thing), so she dropped out and got a M.S. in forensic toxicology just to get the whole thing over with as soon as possible.

After graduation she got a job with the state of Colorado as their one and only hog farm inspector and spent her days wandering the Eastern Plains shooting the shit with farmers. After a few years of that, she got bored. And since she was a homeschool mom and actually does love science, she decided to write science textbooks and make online classes for other homeschool moms. She wrote more than two hundred of those workbooks and was the number one publisher at the online homeschool store many times, but eventually she covered every science topic she could think of and ran out of shit to say.

So in 2012 she decided to write fiction instead. That year she released her first three books and started a career that would make her a New York Times bestseller and land her on the USA Today Bestseller’s List eighteen times in the next three years. Her books have sold millions of copies all over the world, the audio version of her semi-autobiographical book, Eighteen, was nominated for a Voice Arts Award and an Audie award in 2016 and 2017 respectively, her audiobook Mr. Perfect was nominated for a Voice Arts Award in 2017, and her book, Taking Turns, was nominated for an Audie Award in 2018. Johnathan McClain is her first (and only) writing partner and even though they are worlds apart in just about every way imaginable, it works.

She lives on a ranch in Central Colorado with her family.
