From New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton, the first in a brand-new romance series telling the humorously sexy tale of Roxie, a private chef who gets a taste of love—but is it to stay, or to go?

After losing almost all of her clients in one fell swoop following an accident involving whipped cream, private chef to Hollywood’s elite Roxie Callahan gets a call from her flighty mother, saying she’s needed home in upstate New York to run the family diner. Once she's back in the Hudson Valley, local organic farmer Leo delivers Roxie a lovely bunch of walnuts, and soon sparks—and clothing—begin to fly. Leo believes that everything worth doing is worth doing slowly…and how! But will Roxie stay upstate, or will the lure of West Coast redemption tempt her back to Tinseltown?


Nuts (can I just say how much I love this title) is laugh out loud funny. The hot moments between Leo and Roxie left me cranking up the AC. And there are a few parts in this book that tore my heart out. That is the unexpected part of the story. I wasn’t ready for the moment when my heart fell into my stomach and I cursed Alice Clayton. I know some people may be mad at me for this next statement, but Leo won my heart and I found myself asking, “Simon, who?” Just kidding, I’ll never forget my Wallbanger. Ok, moving on.

Leo? Where can I find this farmer, or a farmer just like him? He is perfection. And the kicker is when you get to the part where I teared up and lost my heartbeat, it will kind of make you love him even more. Farmer Boy is now and forever, MINE!

I absolutely loved the banter between these two. Roxie is someone I could definitely see myself hanging out with. Omg, can that woman cook and bake. I seriously wish Alice would put these recipes into a cookbook.

All beesnuis aside (see what I did there, you’ll have to read it and see what I mean). Nuts is hilarious, sexy, sweet, and unexpected. A great start to a new series. I’m really looking forward to the next one. I’m crossing my fingers that it’s the dairy farmers turn.
