The Redhead Revealed Full Review
Life is sweet. Grace Sheridan has just won her dream role in a new off-Broadway play, and the talented hunk flooding her phone with scintillating texts and scandalous photos is Jack Hamilton, the twenty-four-year-old “it” Brit whose Hollywood career is about to climax faster than . . . you know. So what if their steamy relationship is bicoastal and under wraps, or that L.A. fangirls are grabbing Jack’s ass?
Absence does make the heart grow fonder and the libido hotter, but their few weekend visits feel more more like fast food than the five-course dinner they crave. And then—the creator of Grace’s new show is the man who broke her heart back in college, and he seems to have written the play just to make amends with his leading lady.
As rumors spread that Jack and his lovely, leggy ex-girlfriend have gotten back together, Grace starts to wonder about her own feelings. Can lust alone keep our favorite, feisty duo together, or will Grace find herself back in safer, more familiar arms?
The Redhead Revealed Full Review
I read The Unidentified Redhead (Redhead #1) a couple of weeks ago and absolutely LOVED it. It made me so happy when I read it, that I dreaded not having another book by Alice Clayton to look forward to. So I decided to have a little self control and wait till I need a happy-making book to read #2. I knew when the PMS rolled around I'd be ready, and I was right.So I bought The Redhead Revealed (Redhead #2) by Alice Clayton. Immediately I was back in love and so happy and actually had to put the book down a couple of times because my face started hurting from smiling so much. Then.................
I kept putting it down. I was busy fixing a bunch of things on the blog. My kids had activities. I had to do laundry (which I always read during). Usually I never let something deter me from a book I totally love. But I felt it. I knew it was coming and I was too scared to let it happen.
Noooooooooo! Not my George and Gracie!!!
But how can a relationship like theirs work? It's cross-country relationship, she is 9 years older, both are at the perfect points in their career, they have to keep it a secret, he has to be "seen" with other women. Grace is a bit insecure, though Jack never gives her reason to be who could blame her? Then there is Michael who is perfect and adorable, and is great with kids.....I wanted to stop, go back, unread it. But I couldn't. But I love them and want them to be happy. Who wouldn't?
The train was about to wreck.....I wanted to stop her........if I could have jumped in the book and throttled Grace I would have!!!
So while the first book didn't have the angst, this one did. And just the right amount. I love everything about this series. It is so very rare that I laugh out loud while reading a book. I laughed out loud so many times during this series! My husband thought I was nuts. He hears snorts coming out of me and is wondering WTF? Plus, the sex scenes were hot as hell, sometimes funny, and tastefully written without a lot of "schmaltz".
"Bossy Bad Girl Grace was in full effect. My Jack loved a challenge.
"Consider it handled, Crazy," he whispered, grinning that sexy half grin. Then he pulled me, roughly, closer to his mouth. My hands clutched tightly in his hair as he kissed me, first on the insides of my thighs, and then-sweet Lord-he kissed me right on my gonna-see-God."
The scene continues, but do you see what mean? Hot, sweet, funny........the whole shebang. I couldn't possibly love this series more. I even shed some tears. And guess what? She is writing a 3rd one. Squeeeeeee!!!!!!!!
Usually this is where I put my likes and dislikes. There were no dislikes. But I will name some of the things I loved:
-I loved each and every character, and the relationships between them.
-I love that Jack & Grace's relationship was explored and real issues came up.
-I love the way Grace and her friends interacted. They called each other "dumb bitch, asshat, dillweed, and still loved each other like crazy. Grace buying Nick a Hello Kitty case, Grace and her friend in New York. I want to be her friend!
-As much as I wanted to kill Grace, I understood her, and every reason she had.
-I love that the sex scenes were long and involved and were somehow still hot without using any overly descriptive words like "glistening petals" or "throbbing manhood".
-I love that the silliness carried to the bedroom, but didn't detract from it.
5++++++++ stars for story 4.5 for Heat
This series absolutely goes down as one of my favorites ever. Filled with wit, snark, love, silliness, angst, emotion, sexy times, and more fun than I've ever had in a book, this series is a winner on all fronts! I will happily buy anything this woman writes.
