Release Blitz #review: Nuts by Alice Clayton

 The Hudson Valley Series
Book 1


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?

 Roxie Callahan is becoming a popular chef between the richest and  spoiled housewives in Hollywood, but a little mistake sends her life and career spiraling our of control. That's when the opportunity to save her mother once again from one of her crazy life adventures surfaces and she decides to move to upstate NY for the summer to take care of the family dinner.
Is there where she meets sexy farmer Leo Maxwell. Leo is not only hot, but he also comes from a wealthy family, despite that he's one down to earth guy. Availability, boredom, and the chance to have a summer fling with no strings attached bring these two together and sparks fly. Sexy, sensual, funny, loving sparks.
Alice is one of the few authors that can mixed a great love story with plenty of humor and wit. And she definitely does not disappoint when it comes to Nuts.
I loved that these two are imperfect characters. Roxie is a woman with insecurities, insecurities that most of all can relate to, specially when it gets to certain crossroads in out lives. Leo is sweet and caring but he does have certain baggage from past relationships, also something we can all relate to.  But once the relationship gets going they complement each other beautifully and help each other grow out of their hang ups.
If I could add something to the book it would be the desire of seeing a bit more of Leo's back story, just to give me a better understanding of the man and the choices he made.
  It was also a pleasant surprise to see Grace and Jack Hamilton (from the Redhead Series) have a cameo in this book, I just loved them and their story!
If you're looking for a refreshing book that will make you laugh, hot and bothered, and definitely hungry (Roxie's culinary skills are out of this world, thank goodness she's not real or live close by me) then Nuts is the book for you.

About the Author

 The New York Times bestselling author of Wallbanger and Rusty Nailed is back with Nuts, the first in a brand new series set in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley.

Roxie Callahan is a private chef to some of Hollywood’s wealthiest, and nastiest, calorie-counting wives. After a dairy disaster implodes her carefully crafted career in one fell ploop, she finds herself back home in upstate New York, bailing out her hippie mother and running the family diner.

When gorgeous local farmer Leo Maxwell delivers her a lovely bunch of organic walnuts, Roxie wonders if a summer back home isn’t such a bad idea after all. Leo is heavily involved in the sustainable slow food movement, and he likes to take his time. In all things. Roxie is determined to head back to the west coast as soon as summer ends, but will the pull of lazy fireflies and her very own Almanzo Wilder be enough to keep her home for good?

Salty. Spicy. Sweet. Nuts. Go on, grab a handful
