Three’s the naughtiest kind of crowd.
Getting to the one-year mark is hard enough in a relationship between two lovers. For three, just getting through the day can be half the battle. Between Alice’s headstrong insistence on pushing her sexual limits and Jay’s need to confront an abusive former lover, Henry has his hands full keeping both his partners safe and happy. But despite all the challenges—and unexpected dangers that lurk in their hedonistic world—the three have formed a union that brings each of them to the edge of something new—something they may not be able to hold onto . . .
Fifth book in series!
Finding Their Balance by M.Q. Barber is the fifth book Neighborly Affection series. Alice, Henry, and Jay are back for another installment. Alice and Jay are recovering from their incident with Cal at the club and are enjoying life with Henry. Alice is discovering new things with her “boys” every week and thoroughly enjoying them. Each one of the them is finding their spot in the relationship and how they all fit together. We get to see how things are progressing at the club where Henry has agreed to teach two different classes. Cal takes offense to it and creates a problem. Henry, Alice, Jay, Emma, and Will (looks like Santa Claus) are determined to take care of Cal once and for all. Jay will really need to step up to put Cal firmly in his past. Reading Finding Their Balance to see how life is progressing for Alice, Henry, and Jay.
Finding Their Balance was definitely better than the fourth book in the series, but not as good as the first two books. It is an erotic novel (with masters, subs, whips, etc.), but we also get to explore the relationship between Alice, Henry, and Jay. See how they deal with their situation with family and friends. I was glad to see the Cal incident finally put to rest. It went on for way too long. I was also glad to see some growth in the characters (evolving and changing). I give Finding Their Balance 3.75 out of 5 stars.

M.Q. Barber has outdone herself! Superb work!
M.Q. Barber has really outdone herself. She has done some absolutely superb work here. This unconventional love story touches your heart, tickles your funny bone, and revs your engine. Finding Their Balance observes our three lovers around the one year point in their relationship as they work to become a more seamlessly blended unit both from an outward and an inward point of view. Alice endeavors to accept her new role as part-time mistress to Jay, and Jay is doing his best to deal with the trauma of his past in order to help him to continue to find self respect and strength in his service... and Henry, well... Henry is Henry, ever the confident and sharing master who will stop at nothing to protect and encourage those that he loves. This threesome has obstacles to overcome, but they also have a love strong enough to see them through, if they trust in it. I loved every word of this book! The words were thoughtful and loving and hopeful and captivating and romantic and completely enthralling. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a provocative and riveting read.
