Nuts By Alice Clayton Review

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 is a chef to the stars in LA. She loves her job, it’s exactly what she wants to be doing. After a mishap with butter and then her mom's phone call her with a request 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  and 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 both agree to have the summer together but their attraction starts to shift into something more. 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… 

I really loved and enjoyed this book. I was super sacred to start this book and this series because I just wasn't sure if I was going to like or even enjoy it. I really enjoy Clayton's other series and I guess with this one it felt to unknown and I wasn't sure what this series was going to be about. Boy am I glad I read it. It's pretty much like her other series but definitely different in a good way. Its still a refreshingly fun romantic comedy, that I could just not get enough of. I really enjoyed learning about all the different veggies and things growing at Leo's Maxwell Farms. I love gardening and going to farmers markets myself and eating and enjoying fresh food. Really  great start to this series, definitely can't wait to read the next book.
