    Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship. Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Christina Lauren did an unbelievable job with this novella. It was short as a novella normally is, but there was so much packed into the book. It did not disappointment and it is a must have for fans of the series. And, the cherry on top, IT IS HOT!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It gives us so much information on Bennett and Chloe. I love that they brought you up to speed in such a short read. It is just awesome all the way around. It was so packed there wasn't one part I favored over any other.


    What does Grace Grant and Kirby Heybourne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Grace Grant is a favorite of mine. Love her as the voice of Chloe. Kirby Heybourne was iffy for me to be honest as the voice of Bennett. But after the second time through I warmed up to him. I hear a lot of complaints about his performance; however, he did grow on me by the second time around.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Loved the ending. It was perfect.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have always been a fan of Grace Grant's performances. I was reluctant to purchase this book because of reviews.The performance was outstanding as usual with Ms. Grant but I am not sold on the story. I will finish out the trilogy. It is not that I disliked the book I just didn't love it. So yes I would recommend the audiobook but may not the paperback version.


    If you’ve listened to books by Teresa Mummert before, how does this one compare?

    First one for me.


    What does Grace Grant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Grace Grant is outstanding. I buy all the books that she narrates simply because I think she is that good. She does well doing both male and female voices. In this book she brings a little bit of a southern accent to the mix. It was not over the top like others I have heard trying to pull of a southern accent. I probably would not have enjoyed the book as much if Grace Grant was not narrating.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it all in one sitting.

    As their careers catch fire, Grace and Jack - everyone’s favorite couple - find themselves on opposite coasts. Grace has landed in New York City, where she loves being onstage again, 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. And it is just friendship, right?

    Where does The Redhead Revealed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audiobook has to be tied for #1 along with The Unidentified Redhead.I think the real life chemistry between Keili Lefkovitz and Alice Clayton really makes this audiobook series extremely special. In my opinion, it is because Keili understands Alice and is able to bring that through in her performance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Redhead Revealed?

    Jack's movie premiere. When I READ the book, I could feel the range of emotions during the movie premiere but the performance during this scene in the audiobook really made the scene so much more emotional for me.


    Which character – as performed by Keili Lefkovitz – was your favorite?

    I really loved Keili as Grace; however, I think she NAILED on Holly. Really hope that the Redhead Series will not be the last we get to hear from Keili. She is truly the BEST narrator I have heard by far.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book had a wide range of emotions for me. But for the most part I had a grin on my face the entire time I was listening to it. In fact, my cheeks kinda hurt. I think it was the fact that the book just had a smart-ass tone to it without being over zealous about it.


    Any additional comments?

    December 2013 CANNOT get here soon enough.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Unidentified Redhead the most enjoyable?

    Alice Clayton is a ROM-COM master. This book had me laughing out loud while I listened making me look kinda crazy while I was grocery shopping! This story is a romantic comedy about Grace Sheridan who is a a 33 year "young" actress trying her luck again in Hollywood. Grace meets the hot Hollywood hunk, Jack Hamilton who is 24 year old who is on the verge of being the next big star! They meet at a party thrown by a mutual friend and instantly the flirting begins. I enjoyed the witty banter between Jack and Grace which seems to be right in Alice Clayton's wheelhouse. This is my second book from Alice Clayton and I certainly look forward to many more. The thing I love about her books is how light and funny they are. For the most part there is not a threat looming over the main characters and there is no impending danger. Normal people can relate the characters and they quickly become very endearing.

    Well done!


    What other book might you compare The Unidentified Redhead to and why?

    Wallbanger by Alice Clayton and the Beautiful Bastard Series by Christina Lauren.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have quite a few..."The British Are Coming!" and the scene at the bar in Santa Barbara. But the airport scene was very touching as well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    LAUGH! OMG! The Corey references and the witty banter were fun. I will definitely be listening to this one again.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    Would you listen to Beautiful Stranger again? Why?

    I have listened to it 3 times so far. I love the story and I think that Grace Grant and Jonathan Cole did a great job. I loved the first one when it was just Grace Grant but I like the fact that in this book there was a male and a female.


    What other book might you compare Beautiful Stranger to and why?

    I would not really compare this to another book beside the first one in the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say the opening club scene.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this in one sitting. I could not stop.

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Beautiful Bastard to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I think that Grace Grant really did a great job bringing the characters to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Bastard?

    There are so many that I loved, it is hard to chose but I would have to go with the stairwell scene.


    What does Grace Grant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OMG. I LOVE Grace Grant. I would really consider buying an audiobook just because she reads it.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.
