WHY LEO MAXWELL IS THIS WEEKS BBF!
Leo Maxwell is a farmer, but not just any farmer, he operates one of the oldest farms in the area the Maxwell Farm. The farm has been in his family for multiple generations, but it was Leo who got it up and running and again and made it the success it is today. Leo is known for being handsome, charismatic and charming, but completely untouchable. He doesn’t date or if he does no one knows.  UNTIL ROXIE!!! <3

My Full 5 Star Review

OMG, this story is absolutely hilarious and fun! I didn’t expect less from Alice Clayton, I think she kills these books, but Nuts is definitely one of my favorites. 

Roxie is a professional chef and currently working as a personal chef to Los Angeles's rich and famous when we meet her. I quickly liked Roxie she was funny and a little scattered brain, but it was endearing to me. A minor mistake leads to Roxie being fired and within hours her life in LA is ruined. Much to Roxie’s disappointment, it’s really perfect timing though because her mother needs her to come home and run the family diner so she can go on The Amazing Race.
“You’re a bit of a train wreck, aren’t you? I puffed a bit of hair away from my face. “Choo choo?”


Roxie’s an only child, but has really been living the role of parent since her mother is flighty and a little self-absorbed. Doing what she always does Roxie goes home, but only for the summer or until her mother returns from the show. Roxie doesn’t do love, she does do hook ups, but she isn’t looking for more. She doesn’t believe in HEA or prince charming. 

Leo Maxwell is a farmer, but not just any farmer, he operates one of the oldest farms in the area the Maxwell Farm. The farm has been in his family for multiple generations, but it was Leo who got it up and running and again and made it the success it is today. Leo is known for being handsome, charismatic and charming, but completely untouchable. He doesn’t date or if he does no one knows. 

Roxie and Leo meet in a hilariously embarrassing fashion filled with plenty of sexual innuendo and from there develop a flirtation. When they both realize neither is looking for more they decide to date/hangout/hookup, but just for the summer. 



Leo and Roxie together are hilarious, sexy and completely heart warming. I love how their real feelings developed between the two of them, slowly and thoughtful. I also loved how their work lives intermingled and provided this mutual appreciate and respect. This story was honestly written so perfectly. It was funny when it needed to be, romantic when I needed more depth and emotion, and sexy when I was ready for more heat. If you are a fan of Alice Clayton’s work you will love Nuts, I highly recommend it - one of my favorites!

Side note: I love the setting for the story and the education we receive about local farming and supporting our community. I am definitely giving away what a complete dork I am, but I loved learning more and I can’t wait to explore my community’s resources.
