Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton #XOXperts


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? 


Natalie is a true New Yorker.  She hates the country. But when she gets an opportunity to do an add campaign for the charming country town of Bailey Falls, things change and definitely HEAT up!! 

Natalie oozes confidence and intelligence. Her sarcasm and wit keep the laughs coming. And then the brooding Oscar steps in and more than laughs flow throw the pages.  Oscar is a cheese making, fine looking, cow chasing farmer.  He and Natalie become a hot, hot, hot item! A long distance romance, an ex-wife which is still in love and dairy cows….yes I said cows…are just a few obstacles in their path. Somehow, these two make it work! 

I love how the reader gets to travel to the different parts of the city and the amazing areas of the country all in one book. This really added so much to the tale! 

This is a hilarious tale of love, romance and yes….cows!!! 

I fell in love with Alice Clayton when I read Wallbanger(it is still my favorite). She never fails to deliver and delight!! 

I received this novel from the publisher as part of Simon and Schuster XOXperts

    This sounds like a fun read. At $7.99 for a Kindle copy, I think I’ll wait until the price comes down though.
