Description

A closeted small-town florist and a too-busy-for-a-relationship bakery owner mix up the perfect recipe for love in this delicious lesbian romance novel.

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. 

Contains mature themes.

Wonderful follow-up to Perfect Rhythm!

Not the Marrying Kind by Jae is a wonderfully satisfying follow-up to one of the most romantic books I've ever "read" (listened to), Perfect Rhythm. To get the most out of Marrying Kind, you really do need to listen to Rhythm first. Rhythm begins when hugely successful out lesbian pop star Jenna "Leo" Blake goes back to her home town of Fair Oaks, MO after a good many years to see her ailing father. There, she meets his caretaker, Holly - someone she knew as a child - now all grown up, caring, confident, beautiful and not altogether impressed with her. Holly is asexual and their story focuses on what happens when Leo and Holly develop feelings for one another. Can an asexual person have a satisfying relationship with someone who isn't? How would they navigate that? Will Leo go back to her big pop star life and break Holly's heart? That book was a huge surprise for me as I wasn't sure I would be able to relate to the asexuality aspect. I love it when I learn something new and felt enlightened afterwards and maybe even a little embarrassed that I didn't know more about the subject. Both characters are so well written, likable and actually communicate like grownups. Really - it's as romantic as they come.
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!

Odd Choice for Character Voice

I enjoyed this story by Jae, equally as much as the first in the series. The narrator did a great job with all but Sasha's voice. I couldn't understand why that choice was made for a strong 6' tall woman. I mostly got over it as the story progressed, but it did distract throughout. Other than that, I really enjoyed this listen.

Wow

I don't say this often, this book is in my opinion better than Perfect Rythm ,and that book was amazing.
This book feels so real, the angst the love the first time rollercoaster of emotions just burst through the seams. i couldn't put it down. I hope you read both books. but know you can read each separately.
You won't be disappointed .

Once again an awesome book by Jae and the narrator definitely added to the characters with the difference between the voice.

Wonderful

Great story to continue the Fairoaks series. Struggle was worth it for Ashley in the end. Who wouldn’t want to end up with Sasha. Angela did a wonderful job with the characters as always.

Slow burn romance

Not the marrying kind is book 2 in the Fair Oaks series and it was sweet and sexy and unexpected. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this book when I started it because I didn’t really care for Ashley’s character in the first book she was kind of a jerk. With that being said i ended up crushing hard on this book the 2 MC were such an interesting pairing to throw together that I found myself liking Ashley the more I listened.
Then enter Sasha Peterson the town baker and this is where it starts to really take off as the two of them are forced to work together on the wedding of the century well for a small country town that is. We find out early on that Sasha is pansexual and she starts to develop feelings for Ashley the more they work together and from there the story just gets better as we watch their story begin.
This was a slow burn romance that had me rooting for Ashley and Sasha’s relationship in the end.

If your looking for something a little unexpected in the romance department then I’d say you should definitely read this book Jae took a snarky closeted character and turned her into an interesting loving out and proud woman.

What a great sequel!

I just love the characters and little towns Jae writes about. Such a great story! I may have liked this book better than Perfect Rhythm, but I Loved both stories. Great characters and plot... I could totally relate to their feelings. So well written and narration was great on audiobook.

No thank you, please!

The narrator is NOT GOOD. The voices start out like scratchy children, and then Missouri was pronounced “mis-our-ahh” (please- as a KC native, I beg you stahhhp).

I returned the audiobook and bought the kindle version. Problem solved! Book was pretty GOOD. But the audio version... *yikesface*
