About this ebook

Facing their families is turning out to be the trio’s toughest test.

Life should be grand for Henry, Alice, and Jay. They’ve defeated the doubts that kept them apart and embraced a relationship that suits all three of them.

But the arrival of Alice’s sister threatens to upend their cozy routine. Skepticism and accusations erupt in a visit bristling with tension as the sisters tear open old wounds.

Even worse, Jay’s springing a new idea on his partners: it’s time to come out to his family. His decision might destroy them all—but Henry’s hunger for Jay’s public embrace makes it almost worth the risk.

Henry, Alice, and Jay must redefine who they are to each other and what they want for their future—together or apart. Can they trust in their love enough to survive the consequences?

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 committed 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 Neighborly Affection series:

“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

This is the long awaited book 6 for us Neighborly Affection fans. With every book I fall more and more in love with Henry and Jay, they are the perfect book boyfriends. Oh how I envy Alice! This book delves more deeply into each character's family and allows us to see their interactions, both positive and negative, and how it has shaped them into the people they are today. I have to admit I was on tenterhooks waiting to find out how Jay's visit home was going to go. From the snippets we have had in previous books it was a case of "is this going to go as badly as I think it is?" Fortunately all ended well but it certainly was an emotional and bonding journey - for Alice, Jay and Henry...as well as us readers. As always I highly recommend this series, but I would suggest that you start with book 1, preferably when you have some time to spare because you may end up buying the following books and reading them back to back like I did in the beginning. :) Thank you M.Q. Barber for this wonderful series, I will happily continue to read this series for as long as you write it.

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. ~ It's hard to write a good story about people just... continuing to be in love, you know? (It must be; there are few enough examples) But M.Q. Barber makes it look so easy. In this installment of the trio’s ongoing saga, M.Q.’s evolving use of perspective gives all the characters ample time to shine. Getting insight into each character’s personal metaphorical language, and seeing their developing mastery of other character’s metaphors is a delight. Every chapter of this book shows the characters growing together, tending to the beautiful garden of their love. Getting to see Alice’s and Olivia’s reunion after a long separation was especially powerful in the current moment. ~ If you’ve read the rest of the series, you’ll love this book. If you haven’t read the rest of this series… go do that, then read this book.

About the author

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.
