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

You know the best part about this book??? Natalie. I love how comfortable she is in her own skin.  She’s confident in every way! She wasn’t always like that, but we get the tale of how she became the way she is now. And the things she went through broke my heart.  Nobody should ever be made to feel like they are less than.
 
And her attraction to the dairy farmer is hilarious.  It’s funny to see her super confidence disappears when she’s in his presence.  And the sexual tension between them is off the charts.  Oscar is a tough nut to crack, but with time and persistence she manages to break down his walls. But is she ready for more than just fun?
  
One of the things I love about Clayton’s characters is that they are not ashamed to admit they like sex.  Most books have female characters that are timid about their sex life, and that is not what you get with Clayton’s female characters.  They embrace their sexuality, and it’s refreshing.
