This short story is awesome. You gets. Glimpse into the future relationship of Alice, Henry and Jay. It also gives you an idea of the trials that Jay still faces in his life and how Alice and Henry are trying to help Jay overcome it. To me this story is definitely a teaser and I cannot wait to learn more of the trios relationship and story.

This was a perfect little snack to hold me over while I waited for the release of Becoming His Master. Three-Way Tie gives fans of the series the chance to spend a day with the trio as they go shopping for the perfect dishes for their first Thanksgiving dinner as a family. We get to witness the care that Henry takes as he prepares Alice and Jay for their day out. The usual banter between Jay and Alice is present as is the Henry's steadying presence. The sexual tension between the three is obviou ...more

Review for Three Way Tie (Neighborly Affection 3.5) by MQ Barber

First off I want to start this saying this series is amazing. Books 1 - 3 completely knocked my socks off. I can't even start to tell you how awesome they were. This one is more of a random add on for me. I still enjoyed getting more of Henry, Jay, and Alice. I'm not sure that I could ever actually get enough of them, but I would have maybe liked seeing something more to do with their relationship than them planning out some crazy e

So what goes on in Jay's and Henry's mind.. hmmm, wouldn't you like to know? This short story will leave you out of breath. You can totally feel their hunger for each other. It makes you want to jump the man closest to you, to relieve the tensing this story bring.

In this story, which you have to read after you have read Playing the Game and Crossing the Lines, you will get a glimpse into an outing with Alice, Jay and Henry.

You will through the story get to know how Alice, Jay and Henry take the

-> This story is why I bought the book (First frost) ! I read Playing the game (#1) some time ago and wanted to learn some more about this menage... We see how they have become, comfortable with each other, playful, sexy, teasing... "Eager smiles and teasing chatter flowed between them. The most important layer of his life - balancing the freedom and discipline his lovers craved in a satisfying mix for all three of them. The security of rules and structure for Jay. A sense of give-and-take for A ...more

I read this short first in the First Frost anthology (without having read Playing the Game) and re-read it again May 29, 2014 (getting ready for book #3). No doubt, this story got me hooked on the series. I love it!

That was just a tease.... I sent a detail review and a list of questions I'm sure a lot of your faithful readers would love answered about the trio. You answered two of my questions in this short novella. There's still so many!! All I can say is I'm addicted to the series and want more, more, more!

Henry Webb is getting both his submissives, Jay Kress and Alice Colvin, for a day of shopping. He's already selected what they'll be wearing and while they'll all be looking good in their outfits, it's what's underneath that Henry has put special thought and care into coming up with. They'll be tied up (pun intended) with shopping for Thanksgiving but, at the end of the day, the rewards for their good behavior should be worth the wait.

So much and yet not enough!
It was such a joy to get a viewpoint from Henry and Jay. Oh my, Jay really does think about sex all of the time, ha, ha. Still it was nice to hear him melt when given praise and admit it was better than sex for him.
Then Henry, who knew he does too. But, he has so much more to add in the fact that he has to stave off his desire, as his sole focus is "their" pleasure first and foremost. To hear his mind constantly working on scenes was a hoot.
Love, love, love this

Fantastic addition to an already amazing series. Unlike so many other menage stories, this series really delves into the emotional balance involved in this type of relationship, not just the scorching sex scenes. Every member is an important piece in the puzzle that is this relationship and they all have a special role to play. Couldn't get enough of the series!

I love the neighborly affection series and have read the books . Hendry ,Alice and Jay are great characters to to read. T h e sex is steamy and so intense well written till this short story . It sounds like an after thought and a bunch of scattered thoughts. Totally a waste a nd a discredit to the rest of the series. Very disappointed.

I so very much love this series, author and characters!! Spend a day with Alice, Henry and Jay as Henry arouses them into a flourish throughout the day spent shopping. A really nice inside look of how this triad functions, and how they are becoming comfortable with their roles within the relationship.

M.Q. is such a lovely author, taking the time to craft deep, thought provoking characters, and outstanding intimacy. This is a quick read, but so well thought out you don't feel shorted. I recommend the whole series.

Everything I have come to expect from this series: well-written, playful, romantic, and hot as hell.

A very short novella about a day with the roomies. Didn't add much to the story and I don't really understand why the author bothered.

I am a former Midwestern gal who well knows the joy of flopping down in a field for an afternoon and composing stories about the shapes in the clouds. As it turns out, adulthood doesn't have to be so different from childhood.

Sharing those stories is a new thing for me. I hope readers will love the characters as much as I do.
