Synopsis: The first in USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s Redhead series is a playful and erotic romance between an aspiring actress and Hollywood’s hottest new leading man.
When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actress, it’s a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best-friend agent, will that dream become a reality—or at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? And when an unexpected sizzling romance with Jack Hamilton, the entertainment industry's newest “it” boy, threatens to shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life, how will that affect her career…and his?
Funny, borderline neurotic Grace is perfect in her imperfections, and the sexual chemistry between her and charming yet blissfully unaware Jack is off the charts. 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.
Redhead Series: The Unidentified Redhead (1), The Redhead Revealed (2), The Redhead Plays Her Hand (3)
Review: Grace Sheridan is making her comeback. She didn’t do so well her first time out in L.A. and now that she’s back in fighting shape, she’s ready to give it another go. Living with her best friend, who is also an agent, she’s having fun and getting auditions. This is almost a second trip through her twenties, even though she’s now thirty-three, so she’s just trying to enjoy herself. Enter Jack Hamilton, the hot new commodity of the acting world and a whole 9 years younger. The sparks are hot and the blush is definitely on the rose. What they don’t realize at first is how their relationship may affect their careers…
‘The Unidentified Redhead’ is pure, unadulterated fun. It’s a book where you can sit back, relax, and turn off your mind. Grace and Jack are great together, having fun getting to know each other, and then really “getting to know each other”. I was a bit surprised at how long they waited to have intercourse, but never fear – there is plenty of oral sex to tide readers over until the big moment. Does Grace “act her age”? No, but remember, she’s in L.A. and no one there acts (or looks) their age. Why shouldn't everyone get the chance at a whirlwind fun romance? ‘The Unidentified Redhead’ is one of those guilty pleasures books and I had a lot of laughs reading it. I’m now interested in the next book to see what happens with Grace and Jack!
