Nuts by Alice Clayton

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?

Nuts was the perfect book to put me in a good mood. The book was funny and romantic, and it made me smile numerous times. 

This book was so much funnier than I was expecting! I laughed out loud so many times. There were a few times where I felt like the humor was a little forced, but it was still an extremely funny book. 

I originally had a little bit of a hard time getting into this book because I could not relate to the main character, Roxie, at all. She was funny, but she seemed rude at times and she got annoying. Sometimes she just rubbed me the wrong way with things she said. However, by the end of the book, I did like her character.

The way Roxie and Leo first met was a little ridiculous, but I was able to look past it because they had off the charts chemistry. I really liked them together! Leo was sexy and caring - the perfect combination. 

This was a really enjoyable book that was romantic, sexy, and funny. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new romance book to devour.

I really enjoyed NUTS.  I thought it was funny and fast paced without being obnoxious. There was the perfect balance of humor and love/story.

Roxie is a personal chef in California, but when her eccentric mom needs her to take care of the family diner for a few months she grudgingly goes back to east coast to help. That’s where she meets Leo. 

Leo is a local farmer and meets Roxie one day at the diner.  They have a hilarious exchange and hit it off instantly. 

Roxie’s mom is a bit of a hopeless romantic and knows firsthand what happens when a relationship goes south.  So she has always vowed to just have fun and never let the relationship get too serious.  But when she starts feeling more for Leo than she has for anyone else she has to make one of the hardest decisions in her life.


Like I said above this book was fantastic.  I found myself laughing out loud several times.  Roxie and Leo’s banter was perfect and sweet and at times just hilarious.

“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 man,” I snorted … “Did 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 his shaking shoulders.
He buried his head once again into my neck. “A really big zucchini…”

I have to admit that Roxie was harder to connect to at the beginning but watching her grow and find herself made the story.  She wasn’t scared or lost and knew exactly what she wanted by the end of the book. 

If you’re looking for a quick, funny, entertaining story, NUTS is just for you.  I can’t wait for the next book.
