The Unidentified Redhead
When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actor, it’s a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best friend and agent, that dream could become a reality, but at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? Will an unexpected sizzling romance with the entertainment industry’s newest ‘it’ boy shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life?
Alice Clayton spins a playful and erotic May to December romance in this, her debut novel. Clayton’s funny, borderline neurotic heroine is perfect in her imperfections, and the off the charts sexual chemistry between her and her charming, yet blissfully unaware leading man are the true heart of The Unidentified Redhead. With laugh out loud dialogue and a super steamy romance that will get your heart racing, sneaking around in L.A. and dodging the Paparazzi has never been so fun.
The Redhead Revealed
As their careers catch fire, Grace and Jack — everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed, funny, and feisty couple — find themselves on opposite coasts. Grace has landed in New York City, where she loves being onstage again, particularly because she’s playing a fabulous character in a musical written by her old college flame, Michael. Their rekindled friendship makes exploring the city that much more fun.
Wait, it’s just friendship, right?
Meanwhile, in L.A., Jack can scarcely keep up with the swirling throngs of women who track him everywhere he goes, the endless press appearances, and the ridiculous rules his manager, Holly, keeps concocting for him — all part of the buildup to the release of Time, his steamy new film.
Thank goodness for phone sex.
But even when their schedules allow them to connect, Grace and Jack must keep their relationship off the radar and away from paparazzi cameras. Sure, the sex is sensational, but can this duo survive swirling rumors, the demands of their chosen professions, Grace’s raging internal battles, and a whopping nine-year age difference?
Tick-tock, the clock is ticking. Isn’t it?
Alice Clayton brings the second installment of a tale told with her magical mix of humor and heat, so cuddle up under the sheets and flip on the Golden Girls. Grace and Jack are at it again.
Hilarious, sexy, emotional… it’s very rare, no matter how emotionally invested I am in a story, that I physically shed a tear or burst out laughing! The Unidentified Redhead had me doing both!
“He pushed me back up against the door, slamming me against the doorbell. I heard it ring out.
“Coming!” I heard Holly say as she clicked across the floor to the front door.
“Not quite, but she’s close.” He chuckled, removing his hand and leaving me breathless and rosy cheeked.”
It’s one of those books that you can’t put down but wish you could avoid reading when anybody else is around. One of those books that has you smirking without realising, snorting tea through your nose and eventually wiping the tears from your eyes!
Absolutely loved both the characters. It was refreshing to read about a couple with an older woman and younger man, it’s so often the other way around in a lot of books. Grace has a fantastic sense of humour and her subconscious is hilarious as it battles between being a sexy seductress, a past-it cougar and a goodness knows what else.
“The guy looks young enough to be your kid, Grace.
Yes, but only if I’d really slutted it up in junior high…”
And Jack is just adorable! You can’t not fall in love with him! I can’t be doing with the curly hair though, so I try to skim past that little detail. But that is entirely just my personal preference. Other than that though, he is to die for!
“He was everything I’d ever wanted, and everything I hadn’t even known I needed.”
I started The Unidentified Redhead at about midday and finished it at 2am, instantly reaching for my phone and downloading the next book, The Redhead Revealed, which was equally as brilliant. I’d thoroughly recommend these two books. Alice Clayton is a romance writing genius!
