Coming soon: Tuesdays with Jay No. 29: Mastered Submissive

Summer served up a fleeting moment of beauty during some yard work this week.

The muggy, oppressive heat of summer has settled in. I’m not fond of summer on the best of days–give me a crisp autumn breeze–but I’m especially not fond of days when, for example, a massive medical expense hits, the bathroom door breaks, and wasps build their fourth (!) nest in your yard in two months.

On those days, it really helps to take a step back and turn to a trusted friend for a compassionate ear and wise advice. (Thanks, bestie!)

That’s what Jay does, at Henry’s prompting, in Tuesdays with Jay No. 29: Mastered Submissive. This installment has a guest star and gets a little wordy.

Okay, a lot wordy.

Mastered Submissive is set the week after Henry’s birthday weekend in Chapter 7 of Crossing the Lines (Neighborly Affection #2). Jay is having something of an existential crisis about wasting time when he’s so close to the perfect relationship with Henry and Alice. The quadruple-length story will arrive in newsletter subscribers’ inboxes on Tuesday, July 16.
