REVIEW – BUNS by ALICE CLAYTON
A deliciously sticky yet sweet romance that will leave you utterly satisfied.
Clara and Archie but heads almost instantly in this book. She’s out to makeover his family’s hotel and he is dead set against change. What ensues is some funny witty banter back and forth and some hilarious yet awkward moments. Both of them are stubborn and determined to get their way and as they work closely together they can’t help the physical attraction that is there.
Their pasts made my heart go soft and I thought how if these two could just get it together they would be sooo great. I was definitely rooting for them and loved some of the secrets moments that we get to see. Will they figure it out? Or will they let their stubbornness get in the way.
Only one way to find out and that’s to read this book. It will have you giggling, swooning and melting from all the sticky sweet and messy that is Clara and Archie’s story.
A solid 4.5 stars for me and I definitely look forward to more from Alice Clayton
Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….
Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.
It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.
