Cream of the Crop (Hudson Valley #2) by Alice Clayton REVIEW

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?

Review

This was my first Alice Clayton since I read Wallbanger way back when, and I have to say I really enjoyed the humour and the slow burn romance that produced some super steamy scenes between the adorable cheese farmer Oscar, and city girl Natalie.

Natalie Grayson is a super confident woman which is poles apart from her childhood self. Bullied for being a large kid with braces, she has grown to be a smart and sassy siren, but there is one man who renders her completely speechless and she has no clue what to do about it.

Oscar is a dairy farmer who sells his wares once a week at a farmers market in NYC, he is a tattooed and gruff hottie who makes a mean Brie, and gives absolutely nothing away as to what he thinks of his regular customer who comes to see him come rain or shine on a Saturday morning.

When Natalie is given the account to help market a small town upstate, she jumps at the chance when she discovers that, not only is it the home of her best friend Roxie (from book 1), but a sexy dairy farmer with a field full of cows.

A lighthearted, fun and sexy read, with plenty of feels and fabulous characters.

Definitely looking forward to reading more from this series.

Cream of the Crop is a stand-alone contemporary romance, told from the heroine’s POV.
