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!!!
