About the Author
Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England, with her amazing, occasionally ridiculous husband, two noisy-but-awesome children, and two cats. Jay comes from a family of writers, but she always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed her by. She spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content. One day, she decided to try and write a short story–just to see if she could–and found it rather addictive. She hasn’t stopped writing since. Jay writes contemporary gay romance, usually set in or near her home town of Bristol. She enjoys the challenge of bringing the men in her head to life through her words.

Some sexual content
A great sequel!
(Updated: May 06, 2015)
As the title suggests, the sequel to The Dating Game sees Owen and Nathan planning their wedding, yet Jay Northcote leaves us questioning whether their big day will actually happen!
From the moment Owen wakes up and realises the repercussions of his drunken proposal, he changes from the fun, sexy and romantic man who spent five dates wooing Nathan, to a temperamental a**hole! However, Jay Northcote stops us from wanting to reach through our kindles to slap him! We recognise the extra pressure he is under because of the possible redundancy he faces and even empathise with his fears of hurting Nathan, especially after the couple meet their parents for a family dinner.
Following a heated conversation and hasty admissions, Owen and Nathan spend some time apart. This helps Owen recoup so he is able to make a decision about his future with Nathan. During his time in Wales Jay Northcote presents Owen as a more mature character, whose loyalty to his family is admirable. Although we do not see a similar progression in Nathan's personality in this 'alone' time, I think Owen's personal growth is necessary to enable the couple to move on.
The Marrying Kind is romantic with some intense sex scenes and I was incredibly moved by the story (yes, I cried!). I really hope Jay Northcote considers writing a third book for Owen and Nathan!
