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.

Wow! Excellent series!
Jae is undoubtedly one of the best authors I have ever read! She paints word pictures that just blow my mind! I absolutely loved reading about the new characters, while still getting to visit the old characters from the first book. Jae is an absolute genius when it comes to writing! I want to read everything she has ever written! I guess what that means, is that I highly recommend this book and all of her books!
Not The Marrying Kind
As always Jae never disappoints. Always falling in love with the characters and grabs you right from the beginning. The attention to detail in her writing without being boring encourages me to research a lot of things she writes about. I loved the book and I really appreciate the author
