Also, my new book, The Dirty Ones, released yesterday. If you like your story dark, twisted, erotic, mysterious, suspenseful, and set in a huge Long Island mansion dripping with Gatsby-esque old money, then this is your lucky day! You can pick it up at the links below.


Also, I’m having a ton of giveaways for this book. See the video below for a good look at all the cool prizes. Most of the giveaways I run are held in my Facebook fan group. If you’re on Facebook and want to get in on all the fun we have in there just click the link, ask to join, and someone will add you as soon as they see your request. It’s super-fun place to hang out with like-minded book peeps.

So what is this DIRTY ONES book about anyway? Well, it takes place ten years after a group of eight “friends” shared a dirty secret back in senior year of college. They did things–erotic, sexy things–that they are not proud of and which turned out to be a defining event in their lives. They left college promising never to speak about it again. But now there’s an anonymous book sitting on the New York Times bestseller list called The Dirty Ones claiming to be their TRUE STORY. Since three of the women in this little group actually write erotica novels as a profession, it sets off a chain of events and a reunion of friends as they gather together to figure out which one of them wrote it. And as as they do this they slip back into their filthy, erotic tendencies that have been latent for a the last decade.

It’s a twisted-up mind-fuck of epic proportions. So if you like some of my other dark erotica books like 321, Taking Turns, The Triangle (see where this is going? Yes, it’s got plural sex scenes in it lol) I think you’ll enjoy this one too.


“I always expect the unexpected, but never did I expect the total blowing of my mind with this book! Just. WOW.” – Goodreads Reviewer Pam Kiness


This story was just incredible. I was completely unable to put this book down, from the suspense, to the twists and turns, the hot sex and the complicated relationships, this story left me spent, in the absolute best way. You must read this book.” – Nightbird Novels


“J.A. Huss’ The Dirty Ones is so suspenseful that I couldn’t put it down. I can’t help but try to guess the antagonist and outcome while reading, and all my hypotheses were seriously wrong! Ms. Huss kept me guessing until the very end, and that folks, is entertainment.” – Goodreads Reviewer Julie


“Whoah! My first JA Huss full length novel and it blew me away! Was it erotica? Was it mystery? Was it suspense? Was it romance? All of the above, I think. I know one thing, I was hooked, I was mesmerised, I was desperate to get my hands on THAT book. I was desperate to find out what would happen at the end of THIS story. Brilliantly clever, wonderfully written and I’ll let you in on a little secret…..whatever you think is happening…’re wrong.” Netgalley Reviewer Pamela Lilley


JA Huss weaves a sexually charged, erotic tale. The characters are hot with their entanglement and deviant with their acts but hell it makes for one super hot read.” Karen – Kazza’s Book Blog and Reviews


“JA Huss, I have read many of your books, but this one, The Dirty Ones, was by far the best one you have ever writtenIf I could have given it 6 beautiful stars I would have.” – Goodreads Reviewer Kelly


This is an author unlike any I’ve read before. She has the ability to weave mystery and suspense effortlessly and without ever feeling contrived.” Goodreads Reviewer Courtnenay Bennett


I can’t remember the last time a book had me so engaged, so glued to it trying my hardest to figure out who the real culprit was only to come up completely empty every time. I loved this book. Seriously adore it. From the characters with so many different personalities to the steamy sex, the questions I kept asking myself, the fact that I did not figure this book out until the moment the author wanted me to, everything was so freaking well written it’s got to be my favorite book of the year.” – Goodreads Reviewer Erica


This is undoubtedly a sizzling erotic novel, but it is also much more. I haven’t read a storyline this authentic in…well I can’t remember how long, and the characters are genuine and totally believable in each of their roles. So if you like your sex, down right dirty, with a “who done it” plot and some serious mind blowing scheming too, then this book will rock your world. Thank you J.A. Huss for a fabulous read!” – Goodreads Reviewer Karen Roma


“I had an assumption that this would be a dirty, sex filled book but god this is dirty in another way, it deals with betrayal on the deepest level. The feelings, the confusion and god good the over whelming sense of longing. For something right and true and I can not tell you how much you need to get a copy of this. I am so enchanted and absorbed by this author and her words and just this book. I’m in love. Thank you author for this book.”  – Coffeeandbooks


I’m hooked on this story and after finishing this book, I immediately read it again. The Dirty Ones is a mindfudge of the finest, masterfully crafted by the author, a unique story. I recommend The Dirty Ones and give 5 stars.”  – Goodreads Reviewer Konny


I loved everything about this book from Connor’s trudge through that encrusting snow, to the POV from Connor and Keira’s standpoint, through to the denouement and epilogue… no, you get no more from me because you have to do yourself a favour. Buy the book, clear your calendar and settle in. Marvelous!” Goodreads Reviewer Alicia




The Dirty Ones

The Dirty Ones

They said write what you know so that’s what I did. I wrote dirty, I wrote erotic, I wrote the truth.

And then they called me a liar. But it’s not me who’s lying, it’s them.

Our story isn’t for everyone. It’s not even for us. So if you’re looking for the fairy tale and the stupid prince on his dumb white horse, move along. You’ve got a hold of the wrong book. This is not your story, this is not your life, and this is not your opportunity to dip your frightened little toe into the dark pool of water and “try new things” and then pull it out and decide… #NotForMe.

When you go in with us you go all in. So make a decision before you turn this page.

Because I’m making one promise with this book.

Just one.

We are The Dirty Ones and this is our truth.

The Dirty Ones is a brand new dark romance about the secret world of erotica authors releasing December 4, 2018.

Kiera’s room is dark, so I force myself to be still for a few seconds, allowing my eyes to adjust. When the crack of light leaking in from under the door goes from barely visible to a golden haze rising up from the floor I step forward towards the edge of the four-poster bed, unknotting my tie and pulling it through my collar as I walk.

“Kiera?” I ask, pulling my shirt out of my pants and unbuttoning my shirt. “You awake?”

She moans, rolling over, one of her pale breasts exposed from her top, one long leg bare as it sneaks out from under the covers. Her hair is wild, splayed out on the pillow and half covering her beautiful face.

I want to turn the lights on. Want to see her better. See all of her. Never take my eyes off this woman. I want to make this whole nightmare go away. Give her something better. Leave behind my old life with all its expectations and just steal away with her to some far-away tropical island. Stay naked with her forever and raise babies on the beach.

God, what the fuck is wrong with me? We’ve been back in each other’s lives for less than forty-eight hours and all I can think about is throwing everything away?

You’re in love, Con.

I hear the words in her voice inside my head.

You’re in love.

Maybe I am.

I unbuckle my belt and unfasten my pants. Drag my zipper down, trying to be quiet.

I don’t want to wake her. I want to ease into bed, slip my fingers between her legs, and kiss her mouth as she dreams. Make her come in her sleep.

I am one sick fuck and I don’t care.

When I’m naked I place one knee on the bed and carefully swing my other leg over hers. She twists, flat on her back now. That one exposed breast caught in some stray ray of light that shouldn’t be there, but is. Like a spotlight just for my own sick, hedonistic pleasure.

Thinking back on the party at Camille’s house has turned back time for me. Taken me to the place I was, the person I used to be. The one who fucked her and Sofia—and sometimes Camille too. The one who didn’t mind sharing with Hayes or Bennett because they didn’t mind sharing with me.

It was an orgy. Group sex or whatever.

It was sick, and twisted, and very fucking erotic.

It was heavy breathing, and sweaty, naked bodies, and never enough.

It was never enough that year.

We fucked them all. Together.

It was sensuous, and uninhibited, and lecherous.

How did I ever walk away from these people? How did I ever live a day without them?

I place my hand on her one exposed leg and slowly slide it up to her thigh.

She moans again, mouth parted like she’s waiting for my cock.

I picture those nights long ago. At the parties. How Camille would always be the one to invite us in. And how Hayes would be the first to take her up on those offers. How Sofia was meek, and afraid, and shy. And how she changed. How we all changed.

How Kiera used to whimper and moan as she came.

I want to hear that sound now. Right now.

I lean forward, crawling up her body, my rock-hard cock dragging across the sheets. Aching to be inside her.

  1. Jennifer Marvel

    I do think there is elements to books that are real even if the book is fiction.

  2. MJ Fryer

    Absolutely! I’d like to think that some use personal experiences for their books. *wink wink*

  3. Sandy Klocinski

    “There is no doubt fiction makes a better job of the truth.” ― Doris Lessing. Sometimes the only way the author can free himself(herself) to tell the truth is through fiction.

  4. Kimberlee

    I think there’s some truths that seep into stories. I think that helps ground the stories and make them more related.

  5. Dimaris Rossy

    YES! And I always think there is a little bit of truth hidden in the story.

  6. Lilah Chavez

    I have to believe they’re true in some sense . I would like to believe that we live in a beautiful loving world.

  7. Jessica Iskey

    Yes, I often wonder what parts of a book are based on the author’s (or someone they know) life. I’ve heard many authors say that they include things in their books that have actually happened to them.

    Thank you so very very much for the incredibly generous giveaway!!!!❤❤❤
