Ok I am probably not going to be popular here but I have to be honest and say I was expecting something a lot different than what I got in this book and I walked away a little disappointed. Nuts was on my TBR mountain forever and everyone raved about it and I finally read it because I NEEDED to read Cream of The Crop from that blurb and I loved Nuts.

And I loved Natalie and I was in some major lust with Oscar. There is something about the strong silent type, especially when he looks like Khal Drogo (just me?) so as soon as this one was released I dove in.

I don’t know if I was expecting too much or if maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for this book and it might have worked for me another day but I do know I didn’t love it like I expected too and I walked away disappointed. But maybe my hopes were just set too high between my own expectations and the awesome reviews I saw for it.




Ok so Natalie was all that I expected and I loved her snarkiness and self-confidence. I loved that she was so comfortable being her and she completely owned her size and knew that she was beautiful and sexy and smart.

But Oscar just didn’t do it for me. I mean yeah he was sexy as hell and I can see why Natalie got tongue tied around him. And he did go after Natalie and there was no initial hesitance on his behalf but once things got under way I just felt like it was all Natalie and I like a man who goes balls to the wall for his woman. He really didn’t give anything or make any sacrifices for Natalie or their relationship and he just pissed me off more than I could forgive.

He did somewhat make up for it with his love and vocal support of Natalie’s great ass and his epilogue was sweet it just was a little too little too late for me. With that said I can’t wait for the next one and I seem to be in the minority so maybe it was just me.
