Waiting on Wednesday - Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton

Wednesday, May 11, 2016



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?


*Squee* Ya’ll don’t know how excited I am for the continuation of this series. Alice Clayton has become one of my favorite romance authors. All her books have just the right amount of funny and sexy and I’m always begging for more just as soon as I finish the book. Luckily, she’s pretty awesome about getting out one novel a year, so at least I don’t have to wait too terribly long, but the anticipation is still killer.
The Hudson Valley series is just as fun as the Wallbanger series, two books of which I reviewed, being Screwdrivered and Mai Tai’d Up. I’ve been meaning to review the first book in this series, Nuts. I read it while my site was down, but I just haven’t had the time to write it up yet. With the publishing date looming ever so closer for this one, though, be sure to keep an eye out for it.
As for me, July can’t get here quickly enough. Mmm…

  8. I've heard of this series because of Lekeisha. When I first saw the cover and title of Nuts I was like... is this for real. But turns out that reviews make it sound hilarious and wonderful and I actually want to try both books myself someday! Looking forward to it too :D

    1. Lolol. Yeah, the title "Nuts" really was pushing the envelope, even for Clayton, but seeing as the book is about farming and food in general, yeah... It's pretty awesome. XD They really are a hoot to read - not to mention pretty steamy - so hopefully you enjoy them. =)

  10. Girl do you know I literally went and one-clicked Nuts after seeing and reading the synopsis to Cream of The Crop? I seen Nuts everywhere a couple of months ago, but I never went to goodreads to check it out. I;m now kicking myself in the ass, because I'm absolutely in LOVE with food, and I just love how the books are centered around it. I think I remember seeing the MC for COTC being addicted to cheese, like HELLO, I so need to read this!

    1. Who ISN'T in love with food and hot guys? XD Lolol, I'm a lot like that. If it says Alice Clayton on the cover, I know it'll be hilarious and I automatically click and add anything by her to my TBR.
