Start the Neighborly Affection series for 99 cents

I’ll get to the sale links in a minute, but let’s start with a note for those who’ve already read Playing the Game (Neighborly Affection #1). If you aren’t a newsletter subscriber yet, you’ll want to jump on before this month’s newsletter comes out on May 15.


Because this month’s installment of Tuesdays with Jay answers the question of where Jay went on the night he didn’t spend with Henry and Alice — and unlike the typical 1,000-word flash fiction, Tuesdays with Jay #11: Woman Trouble is 5,000 words long. Jay needed some room to stretch out for this one.

  1. Ooooohhh, can’t wait for the newsletter!!! πŸ™‚

  2. LOVE Tuesdays with Jay!!!

  3. Sooooooo glad I found this series! It’s different, very well written and the relationships are handled with respect, integrity and compassion. I’ve read the first three books in only 2 days and can’t wait for the next. Thank you MQ!

    • Binge-reading! I love it, Robin. Thanks for giving Henry, Alice, and Jay a chance; I’m so happy their relationship values came through clearly. πŸ™‚

      • I’ve actually read through the series twice now. Yeah, definite binge reading! And a totally rewarding read, too. I find myself speculating on multiple story lines – Alice’s next hurdles, how they’ll “bring Cal down”, Jay finally truly grasping his own self-worth, whether or not there really will be a baby – and anticipating the deepening relationships that both William and Emma can bring to The Triad. So many possibilities and I’m eager to see what unfolds next. πŸ™‚
