Now a NYT and USA Today BESTSELLER!
Battered, barefoot, and huddled under a bookstore awning in the pouring rain, Blue only knows one thing. After 15 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 threes.

"If you're looking for something mind blowing, dark, mysterious and panty-dropping-hot, Three, Two, One (321) should be your next read!" (Christy Baldwin, Bookbabes Unite Book Blog, Goodreads #2 Best Reviewers)
I'm originally from CT in the USA and moved to Sydney in 2008. I love erotica and contemporary romance and even some fantasy too!
This book was absolutely amazing from start to finish. I loved the characters and how Blue, Ark and JD worked their way through their very unique relationship.
The plot twists toward the end of the book made my jaw drop! I seriously could not stop listening.
I absolutely loved this book!
The story is so absurd and the characters are flat. The sex scenes were horrible but not the worst aspect of the book unfortunately. Two guys who would NEVER get involved with a drug addict find a girl on drugs and fall in love with her instantly and then she moves in with them that same day. The only redeeming aspect of this book is the narration. The two narrators are amazing.
"5+ stars! Absolutely loooooooved this audio"
Wow I don't even know what to say right now. I'm in shock I think. Shock and mourning. Shock that it was so incredible and totally mourning the fact that it's over. Great story with deep Characters, amazingly hot sex, mystery, and more, all while pulling on major heart strings. I can't even pick my favorite thing about this book as I loved the whole package. Wonderful job JA Huss, and you picked perfect narrators. Major kudos! Thanks for the bonus too 😉
"Sexy, Twisted, Brilliance brought to life"
Listening to this story ( That I already love) brought it to life for me.
It is in a class by itself. I would not compare it to any other book out there. The story is phenomenal.
The depth of emotion really brought the story to life.
Yes and I could not stop listening.
"You've never read one like this....."
amazing, suspenseful, hot
How about everything! JA Huss has a gift to weave a story that you never know where or when it will take a turn and yet it's always the very best in the end.
They both did a great job giving these characters voices. You can almost feel like your in the room with them.
Several actually, when they first bring Blue home and she says "I can't feel safe unless I'm surrounded..." Later as Ark is trying to figure it all out after the video shoot, "That seals the deal, we're not one, not two, we're three....." and of course the ending, but I can't give that away.... :)
This is so worth the price, it will suck you in and keep you enthralled until the very last.
The amazing narrators of course!
I haven't listened to another book like 321 before so I have nothing to compare it to.
Sebastian York is one of my automatic one clicks. His voice is rough and sexy, perfect for an alpha male character.
This was my first book narrated by Ava but it will not be my last. She gave each character their own voice and really made you feel like part of the story.
I loved everything about this book! It is definitely a darker read with a lot of erotic scenes. It's steamy and it will break your heart before putting it back together again. Not for the faint of heart, so if you're looking for a HEA wrapped up in a nice bow this might not be for you. If you're looking for something unique and different though you'll love 321.
"All things should come in threes"
Yes! First of all, the story is amazing. This story sucked me in from the very beginning and never let me go. The performance? Umm. Sebastian York is every girl's dream voice and Ava is Blue. No questions.
There are so many memorable moments and I don't think I can list the ones that really stand out here. But "I saw her first" will probably go down in my 'famous one-liners' list.
Life. Voices. Magic. These two bring the words to life. I can hear them, I can feel the emotions. If I thought I had immersed myself into the book when I read it, nothing can compare to the way I felt while reading it.
Is this a real question?! Who wouldn't want to listen to JD, Blue, and Ark all in one sitting. The story carries itself and the narrators bring it all to life. Of course I listened to this all in one sitting.
As a fan of the book, I just knew I had to hear this played out on audio. And this audio delivers. Wow! I'm pushing this book--and the audio--onto all of my friends.
"A Part of My Soul"
I read the book 4 times and having now listened to the incredible Sebastion York and Ava Erickson narrate it, I can say hands down this always be my favorite story. Nothing can trump the feelings the audible version evoked. I knew these characters intimately before. Hearing their words spoken Ark, JD and Blue are in my soul now. The story came to life and I could sense the longing, conflict, lust, love and desire. I understood them and got more information that was hidden by hearing them speak. My heart beat faster with every chapter. The sensuality, heat and true eroticism came through in ways that you felt part of the scene.Julie Huss is a master storyteller and bringing it to life in this manner is a mind blowing experience.
"Three, Two, One, My Soul Has Burst"
Where does this book rank? One of the best books that I have listened to by far. I usually do not like audiobooks but JA Huss is definitely changing that for me.
Asking me who my favorite character is, is like asking me who my favorite child is... Just kidding but Blue is my favorite character because she is just so heartbreakingly real to me.
They definitely bring the story to life that you don't expect from the book at all. It doesn't sound like they were reading a script. It was like they were actually a part of the story.
Yes, I could if I had the time. Thankfully I did because I had surgery so I have been laying in bed listening to it.
"I was getting board of the same old. I listened to"
this audiobook I'n less than two days. I thought it would be too dark because I read a little of after dark a few months ago because of the reviews were so good so I thought it would be similar but was ready to try something new anyway. Im glad I did. although it was dark there was alot of love and a range of other emotions that I did not expect. I would suggest listening even if in the past you might of felt this authors writing was a little hard core. I think you will be surprised.
"Sex, lies, and videotape..."
As described, J.A. Huss delivers a dark suspense novel that pulls you in and makes you desperate to discover the truth behind all of the lies. All three of the main characters battle demons and lean on each other as a means of getting through the pain.
I would classify this book as erotic suspense. The sex scenes throughout the book are copious and graphic. My only issue with this tryst of three lovers comes down to implausible suspension of disbelief. JD and Ark perform and tape sex acts in public places. The girls who appear in their videos are vetted to include contracts, drug screens, and STD checks. The "show" doesn't go on unless the girls are clean. When this duo comes upon the heroine she immediately falls into bed with both of them and they engage repeatedly in unprotected sex. I found it hard to believe that they could be so careful with all of the porn actresses in their videos but not with the heroine who they find barefoot, scantily clad, doped up, and on the street. She could have been a walking STD for all they knew about her.
With that said, the story itself was unique and suspenseful. It took a long time for all of the truths to come out of the shadows, but the reveal was great.
The narration was excellent. I've listened to many books narrated by Sebastion York and Ava Erickson and they make a good team for this story. Ava was great intoning and differentiating the male characters thus making the dialog very easy to follow.
At the end of the audiobook, J.A. Huss recounts her process of Three, Two, One. She talks about the inspiration for the book and how it evolved over the 42 days she spent writing it. It provided insight into the story and added to the listening experience.
Definitely worth a credit.
"Absolutely amazing story!"
I have listen to hundreds and hundreds of books in fact , I don't hardly ever watch TV! I have to say this is one of my top five favorites! The love, the devotion, the darkness, the screwed up heads all make this story so compelling. A must read in my eyes, but if you don't do dark and think life is all sunshine and roses this is not for you. If you see life with it's good and bad, sunshine and cloudy days and most of all love a good love story with mystery and drama then grab it and enjoy! You
"MIND BOGGLING BEAUTIFUL"
It has NO comparison to anything I had ever read or heard before.
After a couple of sleepless nights listening to both Sebastian York and Ava Erickson completely bring this story to life, I was desperate to reach the unexpected finale. I knew it wasn't going to be all fluffy clouds and pink unicorns but I was totally blown away!
This story is like nothing I have ever come across before, and I am delighted to have download it.
Sebastian and Eva were born to play this story. The narration was flawless, and it had so much energy, passion and conviction that for a moment you forget is all fiction. Both actors had to play the 3rd character and it never waver or faltered, momentum carried on till the last breath was spoken.
YES YES OMG YES.
The story takes the listener into a journey of, deceit, lust, passion, sex, lies and ultimately love. But how can Love exist when it's based on lies?
From the moment Blue comes into the picture you realise this is going to be a very heavy and painful portrayal. Having been a prisoner for so long and experienced what can only be described as hell, she is finally free. But one thing is to be free from the ordeal, another is to be free from all the demons which have now taken residence in your body and your soul. Its almost like one of those movies where a person gets abducted and comes back seemingly normal but it is harbouring some evil specie which is slowly taken over ready to pounce and kill. It was like that for me, I was an spectator to this beautiful yet cataclysmic situation.
Blue literally stumbles upon Ark and JD, two men who contrary to their looks and personality have a unique bond. Ark "sees her first" and he is quick to understand that something is very wrong, JD not far behind may have "seen her after", but he is drawn to her immediately. Blue "sees them both" and can't help but feel safe for the first time in a very long time.
Lines are crossed, confessions are made, truths are hidden.
"Gritty... hauntingly good."
I really liked the characters and the basis for the story, although we don't want to admit these lifestyles exist - they do and people profit from them.
The sex scenes were pure porn and well written but did not overpower the story behind the characters . Great back story, I'd figure where it was going with Ark, however the ending did surprise me.
"Not for the faint hearted"
Wow. I had no idea what I was getting myself into reading this book. I don't think I've ever read a threesome book, and this was definitely a threesome book. Not only was it about the sex, it was quite a dark, gritty, suspense. I had no idea who to trust. I don't think either Blue, Ark or JD knew who to trust. Secrets and lies are definitely at the forefront of this love triangle, and it was a love triangle, I truly believed they were all in love. There were so many twists and turns in this book, and nothing became clear until the very last chapter. Is a standalone story told in Dual POV, suspense to the end. I loved it. Sebastian York was perfect as usual.
I loved this book when I read it but was amazed how much better an audio book was the voices are perfect loved it x
OMG this book made me laugh and cry.
It sounds dirty but hold in there if you're not in to that. It's a really beautiful ugly love story.
I love Sebastian York's voice. I have a few books narrated by him.
This is the first time I've heard Ava Erickson read. I will be looking for more books narrated by her
Thank you J A Huss for a truly wonderful story
"overal it was ok, love the twist"
I enjoy the narrator Sebastian York, and love the twist at the end. good ending
OMG WHAT A GREAT AUDIOBOOK
3 loveable characters 2 good to stop listening 1 jaw dropping ending. Loved the actors voices they were spot on.loved this would highly recommend
"Omg this book"
I have read the book, several times, but listening made it come to life.
The 2 narrators really bring the characters off the page in their dark n dirty way, but also makes you feel the love in this story.
J A Huss really takes the time to find the right voices for her books, and she got it spot on again in this one
But be warned, you need your earphones, this is not a book to be sharing with the office or family!!!!
