New release: Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories

Today is the day! Creating Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories: A Neighborly Affection Companion has been a multiyear endeavor, and I’m delighted to finally be sharing Jay’s wisdom and vulnerability with everyone who loves the Neighborly Affection series.

A note for those who haven’t read the series: Tuesdays with Jay is not the place to start, unless you’re reading it in tandem with Playing the Game and Crossing the Lines. Jay’s storytelling complements Alice’s recounting of the developing relationship among Henry, Alice, and Jay as they move from part-time D/s play to a love that will last the rest of their lives.

But don’t take my word for it–here’s what readers are saying about Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories and the Neighborly Affection series overall. (Please ignore my happy tears–release days are a bit emotional!)

Reviewers are saying…

“If you haven’t read the series, you should! It is hands-down the best written ménage book series. … Ms. Barber has a beautiful literary voice which brings each character’s personality so vividly to life that they feel very realistic.” –sherry1, BookBub

“With so many lousy depictions of BDSM out there in pop culture, I was delighted when I finally, after a long and mostly fruitless search, discovered the Neighborly Affection series. An accurate depiction of a loving, responsible D/s relationship? Yes please! … Tuesdays with Jay did not disappoint. It has all the deep characterization, detailed plot, and exquisite pacing I’ve come to expect from Barber’s work.” –hilarymartin2007, BookBub

“Jay is the embodiment of goodness, purity, and love all wrapped up in a super sexy submissive package. … 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.” –Jammie Bebout, Goodreads

About Tuesdays with Jay

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

Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories: A Neighborly Affection Companion by M.Q. Barber
Henry: “You are always mine. Every hour
of the day and night, every place on Earth
where you plant your feet or rest your head,
you are mine.”

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?

Read Tuesdays with Jay and Other Stories side by side with Playing the Game and Crossing the Lines to see the bigger picture of how Henry, Alice, and Jay found their forever love.
