New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton brings her trademark blend of funny and sexy to this second contemporary romance in the brand-new Hudson Valley series!
Manhattan’s It Girl, Natalie Grayson, has it all: she’s a hot exec at a leading advertising firm, known industry-wide for her challenging and edgy campaigns. She’s got a large circle of friends, a family that loves her dearly, and her dance card is always full with handsome eligible bachelors. What else could a modern gal-about-town wish for? The answer, of course, is...cheese.
Natalie’s favorite part of each week is spending Saturday morning at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, where she indulges her love of all things triple cream. Her favorite booth also indulges her love of all things handsome. Oscar Mendoza, owner of the Bailey Falls Creamery and purveyor of the finest artisanal cheeses the Hudson Valley has to offer, is tall, dark, mysterious, and a bit oblivious. Or so she thinks. But that doesn’t stop Natalie from fantasizing about the size of his, ahem, milk can.
Romance is churning, passion is burning, and something incredible is rising to the top. Could it be...love?
I'm an admirer of all Alice Clayton's books and this one is "The Cream of the Crop" so to say. Loved the humor and the overall chemistry of both characters. Enjoyed all the characters from this series making an appearance in this book. You won't be disappointed!
Bailey Falls, perfect spot to fall in love with a handsome, cheese-maker.
Not everyone’s HPE
I really didn’t like this story. The synopsis makes a big deal out of writing a truly plus-size heroine, but she comes off really trashy early on. Why do writers who want to empower women always write about a plus-size one that is flamboyant in their dress, mouth, and sex life? When Natalie walked over a picnic table to force her way next to her guy’s side, I was humiliated for her! Yeah, the guy was hot & built, but he had no personality & all the emotional awareness of an actual caveman. And this didn’t change at the end, SHE did (doesn’t that defeat the point?). Overall I just felt like there wasn’t much heart or depth to the story
