Small-town florist Ashley Gaines loves her little flower shop and putting together the perfect bouquets for weddings and other happy occasions. Her own love life, however, is far from blossoming. Ash has decided that staying in the closet is safer than risking her heart again.
Local bakery owner Sasha Peterson hasn’t had much luck mixing it up with romance either. Besides, she’s too busy whipping up delicious treats to have time for a relationship.
But when their town’s first lesbian wedding forces them to work together, Ashley and Sasha discover they have more in common than they imagined.
During food fights, cake tastings, and slow waltzes, they begin to see each other in a new light. Soon Ashley has to admit to herself that Sasha is tempting more than just her sweet tooth.
What else is on the menu in this delicious lesbian romance? Find out in this second book in the Fair Oaks series by award-winning author Jae. It’s featuring new main characters and can be read as a standalone.

They have to work together when they are tapped to work the town's 1st lesbian wedding.
Sasha is pansexual, and Ashley is a closeted lesbian. And this is a beautiful slow burn story. Jae has weaved a wonderful story. 5 stars!
Ashley, the florist, and Sasha, the pastry baker, at times, blended very well together and made me anxious when pulled apart. I really enjoyed how these two characters interacted with the surrounding supporting cast of past and present individuals; who helped shore them up with encouragement, or those who tried to keep the status quo of this small community-Fair Oaks. Is there a book #3?…need to know if they can turn it around and be The Marrying Kind.
Buyer beware: You’re gonna love this story!
The only con was the repetition of Ashley’s reasons for fear of coming out as a lesbian. Could the same exact words as reasons have been worded in such a way so as to not be so repetitive? That Ashley was so frightened of coming out because of possible family rejection and how it might cripple, the self-owned business was made abundantly clear early on in the story. Repeatedly said in those exact words got a bit tiresome to me. But, that was just a slight distraction. IMO
Well written/well edited. Highly Recommend!
Marrying Kind picks up shortly after the first one ends and focuses on the story of the very closeted town florist, Ashley, and Sasha, a woman who owns and runs the bakery. Both women's lives revolve around their work and neither has time for a relationship. But when a huge event in town forces the two to work closely together over an extended period, will their walls come down? Coming out isn't always easy and sometimes comes at huge personal risk. Will Ashley - who is in her 30s - finally decide that her happiness is worth possibly losing her parents and business over? Can Sasha stop herself from falling in love with Ashley, knowing she could be in for heartbreak?
Both stories are absolutely swoon-worthy, and melted this die-hard romantic's heart. They are also both narrated by the ridiculously talented Angela Dawe. I'm not embarrassed to say that I'm having a serious love affair with that woman's voice. I absolutely loved both of these books!
is beautiful, heartwarming and a difficult to put down...

Amazing insights into hurts, thoughts and behaviours as the main characters face their truth with each other.
I totally loved it but then I have yet to find a book by this author that I didn't like. Her books are always good mood enhancers 😘
