Roxie is a chef to the stars in LA. She loves her job, it’s exactly what she wants to be doing. When her mom calls 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.
Roxie 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 have the summer together. When they’re together, sparks fly. Their chemistry is palpable. You can tell when 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…
Roxie is a character I think most of us can relate to. She struggles with doing what she wants to do with her life and following her dreams. When her dreams become something she least expected, it takes her a minute to embrace that change. Change can be scary, but it can also be a great thing. Leo is a great man. As much as I love both characters separately, together is where they really shine. Leo and Roxie together are a hoot. Clayton always writes the most naturally funny characters. No one is trying too hard, there is no slap stick humor, it’s just all around genuinely funny.
Alice Clayton’s writing style is always fun and fantastic. After reading Wallbanger, I had such high expectations I felt as though nothing she's written since really lived up to that book… Until I read Nuts. This is my new favorite book by her. It made me laugh, it made me smile, and just left me in an all around good mood. If you’re looking for a fun book with a feisty heroine, great hero and a charming storyline, pick this one up!
I didn't find Farmer Boy, but I did find Butch Butcherman, Cheesy McCheesy and Oliver Von Olive (I took liberties making up their names, guess their speciality). Their products looked delicious and left me salivating, but they were no Farmer Boy. Maybe I need to check out a few more markets to find the elusive BIG CUCUMBER.
Anyways, I really enjoyed Nuts from start to finish. The characters were fun, the small town appealing and the food talk left me ravenous.
Plenty of sexy shenanigans to see the connection between the characters. There's a lighthearted feeling in the storyline with some deeper issues that pop up throughout. While I didn't see the conflict coming, I was surprised as at how well it was handled. It wasn't just brushed aside but it wasn't OTT drama either. I loved that I was able to take it on board and not have my eyes rolling out of my head.
While I really enjoyed Nuts and I will definitely be going back for more in the series, I was surprised at the number of mistakes I came across. Sad that as readers, it's become our norm.
