    5 ‘Sugar Snap’ stars Spending the summer back home just got a little interesting Nuts by Alice Clayton is a refreshingly fun romantic comedy Sometimes when I’m reading I’ll think ‘This would make a perfect movie’ I could easily see this book on the big screen It was sweet funny smart and sassy Roxie is a chef to the stars in LA She loves her job it’s exactly what she wants to be doing When her mom calls her with a reuest to run the family’s diner for the summer Roxie does it even though it’s the last thing she wants to do Her first week there she runs into a man who makes her look twice Roxie knows there is something special about Leo but the thing is she doesn’t do love Roxie is also not planning on staying in this small New York town forever Leo is a farmer in her town and isn’t planning on going anywhere They have the summer together When they’re together sparks fly Their chemistry is palpable You can tell when their attraction starts to shift into something Something that scares Roxie Her plan is and has always been to help her mom out run the diner for the summer then go back to California Now things are changing She’s got all kinds of small town ideas She sees possibilities Is this change in her life something she’s willing to risk? Or is going back to California the path she’ll take Roxie is a character I think most of us can relate to She struggles with doing what she wants to do with her life and following her dreams When her dreams become something she least expected it takes her a minute to embrace that change Change can be scary but it can also be a great thing Leo is a great man As much as I love both characters separately together is where they really shine Leo and Roxie together are a hoot Clayton always writes the most naturally funny characters No one is trying too hard there is no slap stick humor it’s just all around genuinely funny Alice Clayton’s writing style is always fun and fantastic After reading Wallbanger I had such high expectations I felt as though nothing she's written since really lived up to that book Until I read Nuts This is my new favorite book by her It made me laugh it made me smile and just left me in an all around good mood If you’re looking for a fun book with a feisty heroine great hero and a charming storyline pick this one up

    4 Bees are assholes STARS ”Are those nuts in your pocket or you just glad to see me?” Can you gain weight from reading a book? I’m assuming that Alice Clayton sure knows her way around the kitchen andor a menu This story had me up at 5 am this morning making blueberry pancakes totally foodie dream inspired This is an enjoyable read about a girl heading home to run her mother’s diner and falling for the sexy farmer in town It’s funny a bit wordy has a smidge of drama and so many yummy food descriptions ”Maybe this could be real”

    Leave it to Alice Clayton to make you grin until your face hurtsBailey Falls reminds me of my small town It's idyllic that's for sure and I haven't noticed any hot farmers around here which is very disappointing but the basics are the same It's Sunday morning you go to church and a bunch of old ladies scan your outfit for 5 minutes straight reminiscing how many times you've worn it and under which circumstances And when the mass ends a middle aged woman known as the Lady of the Caramels because her bag is always full of caramels and candies for the kids approaches your mother and asks if you're single because her son is an eligible bachelor and she would love to have you as her daughter in law No kidding I can empathize with Roxie Now bring me my hot farmer “She knows her customers' orders she's becoming famous for her sweet treats she's emphatically not crushing on a farmer what a summer Roxie Callahan's having” Roxie is a successful private chef until butter happens and she loses her clientele and is forced to return to her home town for the summer attending the family diner while her mother participates in a reality show Roxie hates Bailey Falls because there she is defined as Trudy's daughter the one who blushes a lot instead of the strong confident woman she has become But summer in Bailey Falls is not that bad when she meets Leo the hot farmerbillionaire and their chemistry alone makes the charts explode The uestion is will she manage to spend three months with kind caring and sexy Leo without getting attached? And if that happens for the first time in her life I may add what about her future? “Maybe you’ll show up at my back door with your nuts again” I'll start with the only negative thing I found in Nuts the descriptions could be really tedious at some points and I almost skipped them But setting this aside Nuts was exactly what I wanted and needed a steamy amusing sweet romance that gave me butterfliesI really liked the homey atmosphere and the little town setting I got a warm and fuzzy feeling and I could picture the landscapes and hear the gossip and smell the food The food My mouth watered on many occasions and I was overwhelmed with an urge to bake cakes and stuff but thankfully I suppressed it before the presence of the Fire Department was reuired Or I died of food poisoning The only thing I liked than the food porn was the romance The sizzling heart warming and tingly romance that made me sigh and blush and drool and swoonIf you wonder when Old MacDonald became the new Hot Guy archetype you need to meet Leo Maxwell Aka sexy farmer Aka Steamy McDreamy Blond Green eyes Beard Strong and wicked arms Oh to the my I need to fan myself He's tender and sweet and way hotter than the peppers he grows An easy going guy who smiles a lot and does funny things to your stomach who certainly has his baggage but that doesn't make him less than perfect I'm trying to come up with a smart innuendo about what I'd want him to do to my vegetables but I can't so I'll leave it to your imaginationHis scenes with Roxie? An example of why calling the Fire Department is inevitable after all Their encounters their flirtations and the banters made me smile like a fool they were hilarious and witty and oh so sexy I loved witnessing Roxie falling head over heels for him and even though she got scared and acted a little stupid sometimes because let's be honest every romance with self respect out there scares you a little towards the end I hate it but no one cares about my opinion Dramatic sigh she's a character I grew very fond of I understood her need to get away from the town that seemed to smother her and her determination to not become her irresponsible mother that fell in love every week and I admired her for what she achieved and the way she let herself trust Leo and get re acuainted with her town And for her culinary skills “Summer lovin' happened so fast” Alice Clayton knows how to give you all the feels and she's become an author I can rely on when I want a gripping and enjoyable romance Please do check Arianna and Nissa's awesome reviews that made me wanna read Nuts so badlyOh my I just realized that this was my 200th review Drinks all around

    45 Stars I'll see you around I'm sureIt's a small town Maybe you'll show up at my backdoor with your nuts again Adorably uirky laugh out loud funny and deliciously sexy Nuts was the perfect escape read I've had in uite a while Alice Clayton just gets better and better with each new book but she simply outdid herself with this one If the Nuts is anything to go by we have uite a bit to look forward to in Alice's new Hudson Valley series The eyes and the hair were a package deal the hair was falling across his eyes in a careless way that said “Hey girl I’ve got peas on my shoes but who cares because I’ve got these eyes and this hair and it’s pretty fucking great” Roxie Callahan is a celbrity chef in hollywood catering to the rich famous and the entitled She loves to cookdealing with some of her clients? Not so much So when an unfortunate butter incident costs her almost most of her clients suddenly her kooky mother's reuest for her to come back to the town she grew up in and run the restaurant while she's away doesn't sound so bad Then a certain bearded farmer changes her outlook on the small town entirely You didn’t really bring me beets did you?”“I did” he murmured his thumbs sliding underneath my T shirt the tiniest bit “I brought mad beets”“Oh manDid you bring me anything else?” He brought his face back to mine tinged with the slightest of blush “I hesitate to say it now”“What did you bring?” I asked shaking his shouldersHe buried his head once again into my neck “A really big zucchini” And you know what the best part is? The entire book is filled with witty humorous dialogue like that I must have read the entire book with a goofy smile on my face My cheeks hurt I was grinning so much Leo and Roxie together was pure gold There's enough sexual tension to truly make things sizzle Alice Clayton definitely gives some good sexual tension There's just enough sexy to appease even the biggest pervies like me but without being so much that it takes away from the book It was the perfect balance of romance and humorIt was also a refreshing change to get a heroine that's the commitment phobe instead Roxie is a strong career oriented woman that's not afraid to admit what she wants without any shame Pin 1 Don't get involvedPin 2 Enjoy the penis Engage no other organPin 3 Attachments are for suckers See also MomPin 4 Falling in love sucks In addition to the fantastic secondary characters the wit and the humor the setting of the book is what really hooked me The author did such a fabulous job truly engrossing the reader in this wonderful town I couldn't help but be transported there myself as I was reading itRoxie is probably one of my favorite heroines I've read in uite a while And it has nothing to do with the fact that she shares my unreasonable fear of bees They really are assholes But everything to do with her uirky personality All the characters in this book were so well developed that even the secondary characters jumped out at you in vivid clarity The writing was simply lusciousIn a shell this book was fantastic If you've loved any of this author's previous titles you're pretty much guaranteed a win with this one I can't wait for the next one in this series Fingers crossed it'll be the grouchy Oscar Are those nuts in your pocked or you just glad to see me?Both ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews visit

Roxie Callahan sure didn’t She also didn’t expect she’d ever go back to uaint Bailey Falls after moving to sunny Los AngelesNow that her career as chef to the stars is over—all because of BUTTER—she has no other reason to refuse her mother’s reuest to take over the family diner while said mother jets off to join The Amazing RaceIt's just three months Just for the summer Roxie will make the most of this setback; maybe even find someone to play with Blue blooded farmer Leo Maxwell—yes those Maxwells—comes walking in at the diner with the most beautiful green eyes a full beard a basket of walnuts and sugar snap peas After a run in with Roxie the two end up on the floor on top of each other with sugar snap peas and walnuts splayed all over and around them It was the first of many close encounters and the most innocent I love this book Seriously I love everything about this bookThe food It’s a good thing I ate before I started reading this book because the food It made my mouth water and stomach growl maybe just a little Imagine what noise my tummy would’ve made had it been empty And I wantneed the recipesThe nicknames I am a sucker for endearments and inside jokes It makes my heart and stomach feel tingly and mushy and ahhhThe food metaphors and innuendos Man they cracked me up Keep 'em coming You didn’t really bring me beets did you?”“I did” he murmured his thumbs sliding underneath my T shirt the tiniest bit “I brought mad beets”“Oh manDid you bring me anything else?” He brought his face back to mine tinged with the slightest of blush “I hesitate to say it now”“What did you bring?” I asked shaking his shouldersHe buried his head once again into my neck “A really big zucchini” The voice and tone of the story This is what I love the most about Alice Clayton's books It's so effortlessly funny It's not slapstick nor is it trying too hard It's the kind of voice you hear from a naturally funny personRoxie and all her female leads really Boy I think I rolled around the bed in secondhand embarrassment times than I can remember Her leads are confident sexy but awkward And they’re great They have a goal and a dream and flaws and strengths I'm all about well rounded charactersRoxie has struggled to step away from the shadow of being her mother's daughter and from being the shy girl in high school Her mother although kind was flighty and easily swayed by love Roxie had to grow up early because of it and it was then she promised herself she wouldn't let love take over her life the way it did her mother Moving to California gave her that confidence she's always wanted and it made her feel like a different personLeo He makes me giggle like a schoolgirl There's a bit of mystery around Leo but he's a well liked person in the community and I understand why He’s great Leo is adorable kind HOT with a capital H and a damn good farmer And oh my god He's something else entirely after the plot twist I may have swooned a little I have a soft spot for his kind of male lead But something happened that I wasn't expecting It became than just a summer fling—don't you think? Chad and Logan Chad was Roxie's crush in high school He was this handsome unattainable jock at school who was basically everyone's secret crush Roxie didn't expect to find a friend in Chad and Logan but it was great to have them in her life in Bailey FallsThe plot twist blindsided me I knew Leo had a secret but I didn't expect that I was so relieved when it didn't go in the direction I expected it would Last but definitely not the least the chemistry I could place a frying pan with eggs near the two and end up with close to burnt eggs Heh But seriously They're comfortable in each other's company and their banter is great They have this spark you'll root for I want them to turn into fireworks The big bang Not only did I enjoy this book I learned uite a bit too Who knew I’d learn about plants and vegetation from a romance novel?

learning about farm to table farm shares and all the other methods and associations moving to a back to the clean eating and living movement Clayton took that concept and ran with it It was the underlying focus throughout the entire book We learned so much about these ways of growing and marketing the food many after reading this may look to their own local Farmers Markets to experience what they had read Which leads me to another part of the storythe cooking and fooddon't worry I promise to get to the romance soon The way all of it is woven into the essence of these two characters is smartin other hands it could have been too cute or over the topBut Clayton skated a very fine line and each time she used a food metaphor it was something you would expect from the characters she createdthere were all kinds of play on uses and words think Cucumbers Lettuceetc all of them were integrated in sex play conversations and swearingAfter all both of them did worklive food The food OMG mental Food PornWhen Roxie makes something and then brings it to the table or counterit is as if We are consuming itwe can see the pulling of the melted cheese when the Roxie Special is cut and separatedWhen a customer has their first bite of a Caramel Cakethe sense memory we have of tasting something so sweet yet crunchy comes to mindNeed I say All I can tell you about the impact of this continuing part of the tale was the shopping list and cravings I had while reading this bookAnd now to the other fantastically good stuff Roxie Leo and all the surrounding characters Roxie is a person who experienced small town living from the worker's side of a Diner's Counter From a very young age she saw her mother work hard and run the town's only Diner She also saw her mother look for love in all the wrong placesand experience the high of it the lust of it and then the crash and burn of it only to watch her mother do it over and over again Her mom was a very free spirit during a time when the hippy movement was happeningso life organization wasn't always the first thing on the Mother's mind There were missing sign up sheets permission slips and forgotten appointments with teachers There was the ever disorganization of day to day stuff except at the diner her mother ranIt was at the diner where Roxie felt what she loved not a slew of rock and roll boys like others her age no her heroes were chefsones who made a name for themselves and were at the pinnacle of their field It was this love of cooking and wanting to be a top chef which drove Roxie and with the luck of only a woman like Roxie's momwas she able to go to the Culinary Arts school in Santa Barbara CA It was there she honed the skills she already had it was there she met her 2 best friends in the world and it was there she learned something very important about what she did not want to doShe did NOT want to be a fine dining Top ChefShe did not want to be tied down to paperwork staffing conflicts and other high maintenance mattersThose things got in the way of the cookingInstead she decided she wanted to be a Personal Chefcooking for those who would let her do her thing and cook to her wayRoxie worked hard and finally had a select clientele of very rich carb conscious Beverly Hills trophy wives It is in the kitchen of the top dog of these superficial women we first meet Roxie She is performing her everyday magic of creating something amazing out of basically nothing for this witch Naturally everything is timed to the Milli Second One false move and disaster could strike Naturally it is during this process Roxie's mom calls and drops a virtual bomb;

    45 Stars “Nuts” was the perfect fun romantic comedy in my opinion I had so much fun reading this uirky funny sexy little gem What made me enjoy so much this novel is the fact that it has a little bit of everything Needless to say it made me smile it made me swoon and fell in love with the characters and really with the entire small townRoxie Callahan is a celebrity chef in Hollywood She loves her job and she loves California However she can’t say she loves LA or that she likes all her clients When her mother calls her telling her that she needs her help with her dinner for the summer because she was selected to participate in the reality TV series “The Amazing Race” Roxie agreeseventually Roxie doesn’t like too much Bailey Falls the small town she grew up because everyone knows everything about everybody She has fond memories about her mother's dinner because after all that’s where she realized she wants to be a chef but she never wanted to run it not even for a short period of time “I’ll see you around I’m sure” “It’s a small town” I replied “Maybe you’ll show up at my back door with your nuts again” In her mother’s dinner she meets Leo a deliciously sexy farmer who seems to be as smitten with her as much as she is with him Sparks fly and Roxie doesn’t mind the idea to get involved only for the summer with this very hot farmer boy especially since she always had a farmer fantasy As Roxie and Leo start a no strings attached relationship and they get to know each other they also become friends and as the summer goes on Roxie realizes that maybe the small town and the sexy nuts guy is what she really wants and needs “Are those nuts in your pocket or you just glad to see me?Both” I'm happy to say this turned out to be a very enjoyable read Like I mentioned above “Nuts” had a little bit of everything and I have to say I enjoyed very much how the romance was blend with the humor I loved the witty humorous dialogue It kept me glued to the pages it was smart and it was perfectly done Roxie was a fun relatable character to read about I loved her uirky personality and I can honestly say I really connected with her She was sassy smart mouth and overall I adored her Leo was this sexy farmer I fell for immediately He was sweet easy going funny and charmed the pants off me from the start Roxie and Leo's chemistry was fantastically done I loved all the sweet and sexy moments between these two They were fun they were sexy and they were perfect for each other in every way The passion and sexual tension between them were sizzling their interactions entertaining and their sexy moments so hot I couldn’t get enough of them “He was thick and hard and I was wet and warm and he kept his eyes on mine the entire time not letting me look away not letting me shrink away from this intimate contact For an age he pushed inside as he panted and I gasped and holy hell it felt like the world slowed down and then stopped spinning altogether becoming only the feel of him pulsing low and deep and I could feel my heart literally beating around him” The supportive characters were as vividly portrayed as the main ones I have to admit I fell in love with them as much as I fell in love with Roxie and Leo They were enjoyable relatable and I can’t wait to read about them in the next books in the series Alice Clayton painted the small town in such a great way The descriptions were so great and yes it was like I was there myself If you need something sweet and sexy that will put a smile in your face you might need to pick this book up Give it a try and maybe you will end up enjoying it as much as I did
