About this ebook

USA Today bestselling author M.Q. Barber returns to the beginning of the Neighborly Affection series with a collection of short stories from a different perspective.

Finally, readers of the Neighborly Affection series get the other side of the story...

Jay Kress knows his lover is into the girl next door. As a polyamorous bisexual guy, he's cool with that. And he's pretty sure the gal is into Henry, too, if their explosive dinner party is any clue.

But now he'll have to tackle a submissive's toughest job: getting his lovers to make the leap from occasional sex to the permanent triad relationship he knows they deserve. Their hearts are made for each other--and the sexual perks ain't bad, either.

With an overcautious dominant on one side and a newcomer to the lifestyle on the other, Jay knows he has to tread lightly, but he can't help pushing for more. Can he bring Henry and Alice together before their fear of losing each other dooms them all?

Praise for Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories:

“As always, the writing is superb and well researched. One of the things I love most about M. Q. Barber’s books is that I feel like I’m entering a whole new world and that over the course of the book or series, I become so comfortable and familiar that I never want to leave.” — BookBub reviewer, 5 stars

“Like the other books in the series, this one is steamy! Just the right amount though, balanced with excellent character creation, realistic situations and real human emotions. … I’m also so thankful that the themes of polyamory, dominance and submission, love and emotional equanimity are treated so responsibly while still making it an enjoyable and downright fun read.” — BookBub reviewer, 5 stars

“I started reading and was intrigued from the start. I read the full length book, cover to cover, in one sitting. I mean who needs sleep.” — BookBub reviewer, 5 stars

“I can’t think of another author who does a better job of developing real, powerful, and emotionally complex characters who love, fear and grow in her stories. … [Tuesdays with Jay is] like pulling back a curtain and seeing an even more beautiful view into the loving, passionate, accepting, and devoted world of Henry, Alice and Jay.” — BookBub reviewer

Praise for the Neighborly Affection series:

“I love ménage stories, but Barber is beginning to ruin me for other authors. Her characters show such depth and her relationships are so complex and rewarding that I’m beginning to hold others to her standard.” — You Gotta Read Reviews on Healing the Wounds: Neighborly Affection Book 3

The Neighborly Affection series as a whole has opened my eyes and has made me view the BDSM lifestyle in a new and refreshing light.” — Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous blog

“The three lovers define the ups and downs of a polyamorous triad and leave the ending open for future adventures. … Barber frames a sexy, loving relationship that happens to be among three people. Libraries looking for more ménage works might consider purchasing all three [books in the series].” — Library Journal on the Neighborly Affection series

I found this book to be positively endearing. Having previously read the Neighborly Affection series, I had already long ago fallen in love with the character of Jay. Of my long list of book boyfriends, Jay easily commands the top spot. Jay is the embodiment of goodness, purity, and love all wrapped up in a super sexy submissive package. The man is all heart. This glimpse into the inner workings of Jay’s mind only serves to underscore that fact. The reader can’t help but be completely drawn in by his vulnerability and openness. You just want to throw your arms around him and never let go. It is impossible to read this without it hitting you squarely in the feels. Like, ALL the feels. Jay, Henry, and Alice form the trio at the heart of the Neighborly Affection series, and their relationship—artfully chronicled through Jay’s eyes in this book—beautifully demonstrates the transformative power of love without boundaries. M.Q. Barber delivers superb writing and characters you can’t help but welcome into your heart. I honestly could not recommend this book more highly. Read this book. Read the Neighborly Affection series. You will not be disappointed, and you just might get a new book boyfriend out of the deal… but you’ll definitely have to share Jay with me. * I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All of my opinions are honest and entirely my own.
