Hot Off The Press Review! Best by Melanie Jayne @mjsmut

Best: The Change Series, Book 3

Date of Publication: May 16, 2017

I have a new name in a new city.

Even though we’re only friends, Tye sleeps in my bed every night. After everything I’ve been through, I don’t believe I can handle more. But if relationships aren’t his thing, why is he here?

I wanted Billie from the first moment I saw her. Her scars are deep and every day is a struggle. Learning her secrets is like unwrapping a gift; slower is better. I only want to protect her. That’s why I hold her every night.

We’re just friends, which is for the best.

Isn’t it?


Melanie Jayne writes another hit book in her newest title, Best.  Best is a book about friends, family (blood relations or non), and second chances.  Best is the third book in the Change series, and we get to see the characters we grew to love up to now.

Best begins with Tyler Burke trying to encourage his sleeping partner, Holly Higgins, to take their relationship up a notch.  He desires the relationships his friends have.  Holly is not enthused with that idea and turns Tye down.  Tye’s decision is to go back to his womanizing ways.

Billie comes into the picture when she moves recently to Indianapolis and comes to meet Zoe and Tony.  Tony sees a side of her and tries to enclose her in their tight group.  As Forde, Tony and their wives include Billie into their family, Tye befriends Billie.  An attraction begins, but the fire is contained within each other.  As Billie starts to open up to her newly built family, can they heal the wounds deep inside her?

The highlight of Best is the characters.  The secondary characters build up both Billie and Tye in the story.  We get to see how each family grows from the beginning of the Change Series until now.  Also, Billie and Tye have an off the chart magnetism that is epic.  It is fun to see their banter and notice how Tye learns to think of others instead of only himself.

The storyline is engaging with a conflict that will leave you heated in fury for injustice.  Never fear though, the Forde family is here.  They will do everything in their power to protect on of theirs.  Now that is what is epic in the story.

Happy Reading!!!

Hot New Release by J.C. Reed and Jackie Steele Counting On You

NEW RELEASE ★★  Counting On You is  LIVE! ★★ 


From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed, and Jackie Steele comes a new standalone novel.

I have everything I want.
Success. Wealth. Women…and make that plenty of those. As a filthy-rich CEO, I would say I’m pretty much close to perfection. Except for that one weakness: I’m cocky as hell, and an irresistible magnet for women.

So when one tiny mistake lands me in hot waters with the investors, I have one hell of a choice to make:

Restore my reputation…
Or risk losing my company.

I’m a man of my word and failure is not an option. Not now. Not ever. I fully intend to uphold my responsibilities.

Sharing an apartment should be easy, right? And it’s only for six weeks.
That’s what I thought before I found out that my new roommate is female.
And wow.
Vicky Sullivan is unlike any woman I’ve ever met.
She’s hot as sin, and crazy.
Definitely not my kind of crazy, but too hot to pass up.
There’s something about her that makes me rage with want.
I don’t like her, but obviously my dick does. And what he wants, he gets.

Six weeks…
Living together shouldn’t be too hard…
Until my best friend challenges me to a bet…
I make it my mission to make her mine.

There’s only one problem.
I have to break…Every. Single. Rule.
And did I mention she’s completely off-limits?

It’s too late to say no.

Author’s note – Counting On You is a full-length, standalone novel with no cliffhanger.

Read A Hot New Review of The Boy Friend by Mika Jolie @MikaJolie1

The Boy Friend by Mika Jolie

The Boy Friend

Date of Publication: April 25, 2017

According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends.

Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We’ve been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.

She’s hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we’re like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.

She’s the bomb.

Did I mention she’s smokin’ hot? I’ve checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I’m a guy.

Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I’m the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.

Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.

Now I want more. I want her.

All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.


If only it were that easy.


Mika Jolie hit a home run in her newest novel, The Boyfriend.  It is a story where readers can literally escape life and fall into the characters and plot line.   Watching the characters evolve from beginning to end of the story was the highlight of my reading experience.

Meet Dean Conrad Morello, a lover of all women and a man with no concept of commitment.  His best friend happens to just be a woman, and who says men can’t be just friends with a female.  Mr. Morello thinks so.  That is until he starts seeing his best gal friend in a new light.  Can hottie Dean start to define relationship?

Meet Cori Phillips.  She is an earth loving, friend caring, artist sharing woman.  She has big dreams that she desires, and when she expresses them to Dean he decides he will help her in his own way.

Dean’s desire and Cori’s dreams may just shake up the long-time friendship they share.  Maybe good or maybe bad?  Read The Boyfriend by Mika Jolie and find out.

Happy Reading!!!

Review: Going in Deep by Carly Phillips @carlyphillips Another 5 STAR HIT!

Going in Deep (Billionaire Bad Boys, Book 4)

Going in Deep (Billionaire Bad Boys, Book 4)

Date of Publication: May 9, 2017

He isn’t Mr. Nice Guy…

Julian Dane thought he’d hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn’t that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.

Kendall Parker’s unique issues have made it hard to live a normal life. Very few people understand her and she trusts even less … but she believed in Julian once, and he only betrayed her.

Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall’s heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks.

Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and Sexy as hell.

All Billionaire Bad Boys Novels stand alone!




Julian Dane and Kendall Parker were once a flammable couple.  The fire started off and continued until an explosion happened that hurt Kendall and forced Julian to search within himself.

Fast forward several months.  Kendall has found her niche with caring for abandoned dogs.  Julian enters to right a wrong, but will receive his chance of forgiveness?  Will the past rear its ugly head forcing Julian to retreat again?

Going in Deep continues Carly Phillip’s brand image of being an author who can tell stories of forgiveness and second chances all within a romantic and endearing way.  Also, Going in Deep discusses topics that are meant to be dealt with care.  Ladies and gents, Carly wrote a story that hits a home run with how eloquently she handled modern day issues.  I cannot say enough great accolades on how well Going in Deep is written.

I recommend Going in Deep for all of us Carly fans as well as enthusiasts of a happily-ever-after

Happy Reading!!!

Today’s Guests: Q&A with Charlotte and Madison from Finding Salvation


Welcome, Madison and Charlotte to Cruising Susan Book Reviews interview day.

Can you both take turns, and say in one sentence how you would characterize the role the other plays in your life? Madison, can we start with you first?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Madison- The angel on my shoulder who gives me the good advice, Although I don’t always listen. I like to learn things the hard way lol

Charlotte- Madison has always been my protector; from the moment I’ve met, she’s kept me safe. Still, to this day as adults, I know that if I am ever scared or worried about anything that she will always be there to make sure everything is okay.


Charlotte, you have been described by your family at times as being innocent and almost fragile. Do you believe this fits you? How would you describe yourself?       

I believe that back then I was fragile, I had been so scared for so many years about being alone and being abandoned. I always went above and beyond for everyone because I felt as if I needed to secure my place so they wouldn’t leave me. Now I am different, Jackson helped a lot with that. I no longer worry that I will be alone and no longer need to go above and beyond because they’d never get rid of me.

Can you both say one word that describes the other person?   

Madison – loyal

Charlotte – strong

When you both were integrating from being in the foster home to having a family, what was the hardest part of that transition?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Madison- Sleeping. I wouldn’t sleep because I was afraid I would wake up back in the system.

Charlotte- worried at any moment that the Finley’s would change their mind and send us back. Or decide to keep one of us and not the other. I think for the first six months we lived with them we would go to bed holding hands so we wouldn’t let one be taken without the other.

How would you each describe your relationship with Donovan?  

Madison- I love to hate him because he can’t keep a secret. But he is the best brother a girl could ask for.

Charlotte- he’s the best big brother in the world. I can’t begin to describe how grateful I still am that Madison went toe to toe with him and he chose us.


You are spending a night on the town, what is it you both would be doing?

Charlotte – spending time with our husbands, while they try to convince us to have another baby or five.

Madison. You can go out with your husband I need a day at the spa and away from him for the night.

What celebrity do you identify most with?  

Madison- what I’m not a celebrity?

Charlotte – I wouldn’t even know where to begin with this. Someone with kids, helps people, and loves her husband. To be brutally honest, I only know male celebrities: D


Can you tell me each other’s favorite, and are they correct?

Madison, Charlotte’s favorite meal?

Madison- Anything Italian.  Coughs (gross)

Charlotte: food, Madison loves any kind of food.

Madison- she’s right I like food, well not all food. I don’t like Italian food, red sauce, yuck.

Charlotte- she lies she loves spaghetti

Madison- Don’t make me stab you with this fork.

Charlotte, Madison’s favorite sexiest male celebrity?

Madison- whoever is playing a cop at the moment. She’s a sucker for anyone in uniform. I mean look at her husband.

Charlotte – the guy from the Dracula untold movie

Madison, Charlotte’s favorite hotspot?

Madison- Easy Jay’s, Free drinks and VIP status what more could she ask for.

Charlotte – um duh Easy Jays is the hottest spot out there.

Charlotte, Madison’s favorite song?

Madison- she likes when I sing her Pony

Charlotte – that’s true… Madison likes that awesome song by Plies

Madison- that is true it’s like my very own theme song.


If you both were to give one wish for each other what would it be?   

Madison- I wish for her to have 20 more babies and stop bragging about how she doesn’t have stretch marks yet.

Charlotte – that she finally beats Avery at a video game, so he will stop doing that stupid celebratory dance he does every stinking time.

Madison- I have to admit I kinda like when he wins. When no one’s around, he does his dance naked for me. I’ll record it next time and show you.

Charlotte – please don’t because that thing looks like he’s having a fit on a toilet.

Madison- to be fair I just like looking at him naked. His ass, though. Now that is a sight to see.

One last question before we end the interview. What is it that you both want fans to remember you by the most? Charlotte, would you like to start first this time?        

Madison- my Ninja like skills.

Charlotte – that I don’t take kindly to pranks or jokes and will get you back tenfold you’ll never see it coming.

Madison- that reminds me we really need to watch our backs. I put a dead skunk in the boys’ bushes last night.

Charlotte – you need to let me know these things. They like to show up at my house in the middle of the night while I’m getting busy with my husband who does nothing to stop them.

Madison- I’m telling you now. So that counts right?


Thank you, Madison and Charlotte, for your time today. You both are so fun to get to know as well as a huge role model for young women out there.  

Madison- ahh I’m not sure I make the best role model. DONT DO WHAT I DID!!!!

Charlotte- thanks for the interview, it was a lot of fun.

Review: Taming Sugar by Rebecca Grace Allen @RGraceAllen

Rebecca Grace Allen

Taming Sugar
A Modern Day, BDSM, Taming of the Shrew
January 19, 2017



A modern day, BDSM, Taming of the Shrew.

After being dropped from the best role she’d ever gotten, actress Roxy Cavanaugh is on a week’s vacation to work on her patience. Being holed up in a little cabin isn’t doing much to help her, and neither is meeting sexy property manager Hunter Finn. Unfazed by her willful determination, Finn might be the first man strong enough to take her…if they don’t kill each other first.


After being fired from a play, Roxy Cavanaugh takes a break in nature.  Taking a break is new for Roxy and so is playing nice.  Roxy is known as a rich spoiled princess, but when Hunter Finn comes into to fix a few problems in the cabin Roxy’s world will get turned upside down.

Hunter is known as dominating, and desires control in and out of the bedroom.  What happens when you mix dominating with a rich spoiled princess?  Let’s just say it is combustible!

The story is short in nature but thick in meaning.  It is a lesson on letting go and being okay with it.  Hunter has a few lessons to teach Roxy, and it is not all about what is in the bedroom.  These lessons will shake Roxy to her very core.

The story is a bit of kink, just to be forewarned.  It is though not over the top.  It is just enough to allow you to see the message that Rebecca Grace Allen is trying to give.

If you like a story with a bit of kink and meaning mixed with it, then you will enjoy Taming Sugar.

Happy Reading!!!

Review: Contract Signed by Marie Harte @MHarte_Author

Marie Harte

Contract Signed
Triggerman, Inc – Book 1
January 17, 2017



Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of…joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.


Contract Signed is a thrilling novel full of mystery, mayhem, and much testosterone.  You combine that with sizzling chemistry and what you have is combustible.

The story starts off introducing the reader to Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh.  Noel is an assassin of extremely bad men.  In the very first scene, Noel is on the job to terminate an evil man.  After the job, he returns to his home on Bainbridge Island where he finds his neighbor, Adeline “Addy” Rose with a baby she claims someone left for him.

The mystery and romance explode from there as Noel starts to melt his heart just when men are trying to kill him.  Addy is in danger, but can Noel be the man he wants to be or is the kill too much of a thrill for him?

First of all, I love the setting of the story.  I do not live very far from there.  It is fun to have a story set right in your backyard.  Second, I enjoyed reading about all the men that work for this mysterious organization.  They are freaking funny. Each carries a different title and job description for which they hold.  I can’t wait to see more on this series.

I would recommend checking out this series.  Add Contract Signed to your TBR list.

Happy Reading!!
