Review: Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton
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?
**** 4 Star Review ****
<Insert giggles here> "Let's go make some cheese. In the history of romantic opening lines, it probably wouldn't make anyone's top-ten list, but it was music to my ears." That is basically the premise of this book. Natalie is not only obsessed with Oscar, but she is obsessed with his cheese. Yes, you read that right. It sounds ridiculous, but it is so funny.
This is one of the most unique love stories. I was dying. Dying. Natalie's obsession with cheese is just so unreal yet so awesome. Her inability to properly function around Oscar is funny as all get up.
Between the uniqueness of this story and the never-ending giggles, this story is winner in my book! If you are looking for a sweet, not overly sweet, and funny story, this is definitely a book you need to pick up. I can't wait to see what Alice has in store for me next!
