About this ebook

The USA TODAY bestselling beginning to the NEIGHBORLY AFFECTION series.


She expects dinner with neighbors—but gets sex with a side of safewords.


Fantasies about her sexy neighbors spice up Alice's nights, even a year after she's moved in. She can't decide whether the men are roommates or partners, but either way, they spark a wanton desire in this mechanical engineer that has her imagination—and vibrator—working overtime.


Henry, director of everything around him, studies human nature and applies philosophies to his paintings as well as his relationships. Quirky and polite to a fault, he follows his own code of honor even when it means denying himself.


Charming and playful, Jay craves stability, guidance, and the chance to please others. His antics counterbalance Henry's formal ways and bring vulnerability and fun to the trio's adventures.


BDSM play with the enigmatic artist and flirtatious joker across the hall allows Alice to quiet the too-logical mind that has kept her unsatisfied and distant with other lovers. She must reconsider her notions of love, submission, and independence if she's to find a permanent place in their bed and hearts.


New to USA Today bestselling author M.Q. Barber’s Neighborly Affection series?

This friends-to-lovers bisexual menage romance saga is best read in order. Dominance and submission is the name of the game for this MMF poly triad.

Start with Playing the Game or the prequel book Becoming His Master. For a different perspective on the events of Playing the Game, read it alongside Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories.


Praise for the USA Today bestselling series starter…

“The writing is quick, smart and witty. The character development, especially of the heroine, and plot progression work well with this trio.” – Shelly, reviewer for Red Hot Books

“Ms. Barber delves into the culture of Dominance and submission with compelling grace, introducing us to Alice, Henry, and Jay and all of their delightful emotional and sexual complexities.” – Sophia Jones,author of The Pharaoh and the Curator

“It’s steamy and sexy enough, and doesn’t hold back on the BDSM angle, but this erotic romance has so much more to offer than titillation or fantasy.” – D.B. Sieders, author of Red Shoes for Lab Blues

“I will read this one again. The sex scenes were off the charts hot. The characters were amazing. Henry melted me.” – Jessi Gage, author of Wishing for a Highlander

“Chapter after chapter, I was captivated by the very real process of a woman that discovers her submissive self and how a man tamed her, day after day, week after week, month after month. … It is the kind of book that make you think: yeah, that makes sense. If I was in her shoes, I would act like this.” – Mary, reviewer for Mary’s Menage Whispers

“The writer had a way to bring you in and make you feel soulful about what they were sharing. I felt like I was made to consider each decision they made about what they needed and why they needed it. This wasn’t just a wham-bam book, it was a story of Alice’s emotions surrounding this couple she had grown to care for.” — Mistress L, reviewer for S&M’s Book Obsessions

I've had this book sitting on my kindle since it was either free or .99 on amazon about a year ago. I liked the concept, but haven't really read much menage, so it just sat there for a long while ...

About the author

USA Today bestselling author M.Q. Barber likes to get lost in thought. She writes things down so she can find herself again.


Often found staring off into space or frantically scratching words on post-it notes, M.Q. lives with one very tolerant, easily amused puppy.


She has a soft spot for romances that explore the inner workings of the heart and mind alongside all that steamy physical exertion. She loves memorable characters, witty banter, and heartfelt emotion in any genre.
