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?

I absolutely loved this book!  Alice Clayton is the total package.  She weaves so much into her stories; love, laughter, tears, and lots of steam.  The tension and chemistry from Oscar and Natalie was off the charts! Natalie is a big girl with a larger than life personality.  She knows how to work a room and is not afraid of much, except communicating with Oscar (the grouchy, sexy, tatted dairy farmer).  Oh. Yes!  The sparks fly as the cows moo!  I didn’t want this one to end.  Looking forward to more books in the Hudson Valley series.

“Details are not only appreciated, they are coveted, revered, and possibly typed up and framed.  So go slow, and make it worth it.”

Spoken like a true BFF!

“Hopefully you’ll bake him some more muffins.”  I smiled back just as sweetly.  “I loved the last batch – they were great for breakfast.”

Ouch!  S.N.A.R.K.Y. and well deserved.  #natalieforthewin
