Foodie talk, sass and a hot farmer, that’s exactly what Alice Clayton delivers in Nuts and I totally enjoyed it! This was such a fun and yes, sassy read! I love Alice’s use of foodie talk in her books, as a Food Network junkie it so speaks to me!
Roxie escaped her small-town life and has become a successful private chef in Los Angeles, but when one whipped cream moment goes wrong, she finds herself in some professional trouble. At the same time her mom needs her to come home and look after the family diner so she can go on an adventure herself. Reluctantly, Roxie agrees, but only temporarily.
Leo is a former city boy who has embraced the farm life. He loves the small town, the people and growing food. He’s turned the Maxwell farm into a magical place for the whole community, with community programs, supplying food and making it a town experience all around.
I love the connection between these two, it definitely had me cracking up! Roxie is so quirky and clumsy and sassy and it’s the perfect match for laid back, farm boy Leo. Their first few interactions were so funny and epic that you just know a great story is to follow. What starts as a smoking hot summer fling turns into something more, deeper than either had planned but there are definitely some surprises in store for both Leo and Roxie.
I really found this to by a fun and heartwarming story! Roxie is fun and confident but she also guards her heart after watching her mother go through men all her life. Not sure she really believes in the whole true love thing made it even better to watch her fall for Leo. I really enjoyed that their story wasn’t overly dramatic or angsty, yes they have issues to deal with but overall I enjoyed the feel-good fun story Ms. Clayton delivered! There is a perfect blend of chemistry, giggle and romance! And absolutely fantastic nicknames – Sugar Snap – loved it! I’m definitely excited to see what comes next!
