About this ebook

The sequel to the USA TODAY bestselling series starter PLAYING THE GAME.

A safeword won't save her from love.

After six months of cavorting in her neighbors' bed, Alice admits signing the contract to be Henry's sexual submissive is the best decision she's ever made. He more than delivers on his promise to give her sexual satisfaction—they scorch the sheets each time they meet.

But submitting to his dominance alongside his long-term lover shows her the sharp line between sex and love. Henry loves goofy, eager-to-please Jay. Neither man has promised to love her.

Hiding her feelings grows harder every night she spends with them. As the three lovers struggle with wounds old and new, Alice's emotional turmoil threatens to shred their arrangement. Is it time to bow out before they show her the door? Or can a triangle be the shape of true love?

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 Crossing the Lines, read it alongside Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories.

Praise for Crossing the Lines:

“I am not sure if I can dare to say that I completely related to the heroine and understood her so well that it was pretty scary. Her insecurities were totally mine. … I can promise you, if you are genuinely curious about the lifestyle, no matter if you are experienced or a newbie… you WILL love this story!— Mary, reviewer for Mary’s Menage Whispers

“The author brings you right into their world, the sex scenes are amazingly sensual and crazy hot, she writes these scenes so creatively that you feel part of it and beg for more. The chemistry between these three could bring down the house. I loved the story and the getting to know the characters on a deeper level. … Very sexy, sensual and emotional.” — Nanee McGee, reviewer for Up All Night, Read All Day, reviewing Playing the Game and Crossing the Lines

“This time around I still enjoyed the chemistry of these three because it was good, very good. There’s a plethora of angst amongst them, yes even Henry, that I couldn’t get enough of.” — Shelly, reviewer for Red Hot Books

“This series remains my favorite triad series. It takes a lot for a book to stay with me after months of reading other books, but that is exactly what this series does.” — Delphina, reviewer for Delphina Reads Too Much

This series is all about how sexy vulnerability and enthusiastic consent are. Often when I read a bdsm+ménage book, I’m left with SO many questions, or an uncertainty about the long term viability of the relationship when exposed to the oxidizing force of ‘other people’. This book is a great locomotive, leaving the station ‘ooo, this is HOT’ arriving at ‘these people are in a relationship that will last. And continue to be HOT’. This book ends with a very heavy trial for the characters, but I’m left feeling secure in the knowledge that they aren’t broken and their love will bring them through.

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.
