The sexy follow-up to Unidentified Redhead, this audiobook from USA Today best-selling author Alice Clayton is a magical mix of humor and heat - so cuddle up under the sheets; Grace and Jack are at it again!
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?
Meanwhile, in L.A., Jack can scarcely keep up with the throngs of women who track him everywhere he goes, the endless press appearances, and the ridiculous rules his manager, Holly, keeps laying down 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 they survive the swirling rumors, the demands of their chosen professions, and Grace’s internal battles?

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Grace Sheridan and Jack Hamilton's escapades continue. It's not just distance that separates these two. Ms.Clayton once again does a great job with the book. It packs the same heat and humor, but more intensity since Grace and Jack have big obstacles to face. I even found myself teary eyed at times. I loved the complexity of this story. Grace coming to terms with herself, what she wants, and what she's willing to live with & without.I loved Jack's maturity, vulnerability, his love for Grace, and for accepting Grace for who she is (flaws and all). This is a series that completely draws you in and keeps you engaged. The side characters are fantastic, the situations that arise are believable, the sex….oh my lord….the sex is hot! I really enjoyed this sequel...it was sweet, funny and again...very sexy :-)
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
Grace. She is truly, absolutely a nut. I can't imagine anyone not liking this girl. She is just like a lot of women. We believe some things are just too good to be true. Especially when it comes to love.
The first book, The Unidentified Redhead and Wallbanger. The same sharp wit and the comedy is great.
Grace without a doubt. I which The Brit was in a Brit voice.
Yes, I was all in on this book. I saw the train wreck before it happened and I'm sure most people will. I was so hurt for Grace and mad at the same time because of Jack. I felt Jack's pain when he was speaking to Grace about their relationship.
This is a great read. The comedy is good and the relationship with Grace and Holly is one most women have with a great girlfriend. I will listen to this one multiple times.
This series is one of my favorites. The author does a great job with interesting characters and mixing in humor and wit. There were parts in this book I wanted to scream at the characters and parts where I was laughing out loud. The storyline was very realistic which makes it even better. I cannot say enough how great a book this is. It was well worth the credit!
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.
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.
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.
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.
December 2013 CANNOT get here soon enough.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I'm loving this "Redhead" series. Sometimes you need a lighter listen that's fun and this series provides it. Grace is such a crazy, loveable woman and you can't help but want to know what's going to come from her next. My only complaint is that the author doesn't relate Jack's point of view but it's still a cute sexy story that I enjoyed.
I wasn't expecting this one to come out so soon, so a big thanks to Audible for getting it out. The narrator does a fantastic job also. This is not a stand alone book. Make sure you get book 1 first. I do think this one is worth a credit if you want this type of book.
Super cute follow up to book one. I LOVE Jack, and love that he loves the 30-somethings! This installment follows the burgeoning romance of Grace and Jack with some real life and "new stardom" issues thrown in there. As was the first book, this was well written with plenty of sass and humor, however I'm still not a fan of this narrator at all, she speaks to quickly throughout the whole story and it's just not a good match. All that said,I'm pretty hooked on this couple and want to find out how things progress, so book three, here I come!
Ok so here's my confession. I discovered Alice Clayton a few months ago. I read Wallbanger first (her third book) and fell in love. I knew about the Redhead series but it didn't really appeal to me. I had it in my little pea brained mind that there was NO WAY Alice could capture the brilliance of Wallbanger and seeing Redhead was her first few books, there was just NO WAY they could be even half as good!!! As you can tell, I absolutely loved Wallbanger and didn't want to ruin that experience by going backwards (you all know what I mean? Sometimes authors catch lightening in a bottle that can't be recreated). So when I met Alice Clayton this summer in Las Vegas, I told her how much I loved Wallbanger and she asked if I had read her "Redhead" series. I did tell the truth and I sheepishly said no. She suggested that I do so and I agreed but as you all know, my TBR pile is hella big! So while traveling for work (many, many months later) I picked up the audio versions of this series and........*to my shagrin* I totally love it!
I gobbled those two books up. I didn't sleep last night because I needed to hear the end of it but guess what, it's not the end of the series *does happy dance* there is going to be a third book out in December *sings Hallelujah with an angel choir*
So let me tell you a bit about my thoughts on Alice Clayton and then the Redhead series. First, Alice writes like no one else! If you want to read a book CR from a woman's POV, read a CR, any CR and you've got it but if you want to read a book from the POV from inside your BFF's head, the friend who's totally crazy, cool and a bit neurotic, then read Alice's books. I swear she placed a tape recorder inside a few of my friend's heads and wrote it all down, LOL. The books are funny, snarky, sexy, fun and fresh. I absolutely adore these books! If you've read her Wallbanger book or Tangled by Emma Chase (male POV but funny as hell), you'll love these as well. Super, duper, don't miss these great CR books!!!
So what's with the Redhead? Ok now that you know how clever I think Alice's writing is, let me also tell you, you're gonna love this Redhead. She's almost like a modern day I Love Lucy.
This series follows the fresh new start in the life of Grace Sheridan (think Lucy). Grace tried her hand at being a star in her early twenties but it just didn't pan out. She left Hollywood with less stars in her eyes and went about trying to find her way into a normal life with a normal job and a little wiser from her crack at stardom but that wasn't in the cards for her either. After a few years away from the bright lights, she has pulled on her big girl panties and is going to give Hollywood one more try with her BFF as her manager, what could go wrong?
Back in Hollywood now, her BFF Holly is throwing a party for all her clients and wants Grace to meet the next "it" guy in town and who's one of her clients as well, Jack. He's going to be staring in a new movie that's kinda like an erotic Doctor Who for women about a sexy time traveling science guy. He's kinda David Tennant meets Robert Pattenson meets young Justin Timberlake. Basically he's totally blond, beautiful and British. Grace doesn't stand a chance!
Anywho, in the first book, Jack and Grace hit it off. They begin a very hot and heavy relationship. These two are absolutely, adorably, CRAZY in love but Grace is a bit paranoid about their differences, mainly Jack is 24 and Grace is 33. In Hollywood, she's practically robbing the cradle, not to mention that Jack's career is about to blow up and everyone is gonna want a piece of him. To add to Grace's neurosis, everyone says that him being unattached will be best for his career, so their relationship has to stay on the down-low. As his career takes off, everyone wonders who is that redhead Jack's been seen with all over Hollywood with, The Unidentified Redhead (hence the books name).
In the second book, we find Grace rekindling an old friendship, her own career starts to take off and she's forced to move to New York. Jack and Grace's relationship is tested but phone sex, sexting and red-eye flights work wonders until your heart and mind go to war.
The series as a whole, so far, is chalk full of fun locals, quirky characters, and all out slap-stick real moments that you'll swear Alice was spying on you and your friends.
If you want a laugh out loud fun and a truly unique CR, then these books are an absolute MUST READ!!!
Oh on a side note: I did enjoy the audio version but I do wish the reader would have done a British accent for Jack. Sometimes it was hard to differentiate between what was Grace's voice and what was Jack's but all in all, her enthusiasm for the character came through enough that it over rode the need for Jack's voice to be portrayed accurately.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
Love the Alice Clayton's writing; love this series; but especially love the narrator who brought so much emotion to the story including laugh out loud moments! Bravo!!
