The Redhead Plays Her Hand | [Alice Clayton]

The Redhead Plays Her Hand

Grace Sheridan is flying high. With scorching passion from her gorgeous Brit superstar Jack Hamilton plus the lead role in a new television dramedy, she could just pinch herself. Then a demand from her show's directors to drop fifteen pounds brings her back down to earth with a thump. Forced to subsist on air, cucumbers, and boot camp, Grace wonders if the body that brings the newly crowned "Sexiest Man Alive" to his knees is just too booty-licious for Hollywood. Jack, meanwhile, seems overly enamored of the celebrity lifestyle.

Publisher's Summary

It's getting hot (and heavy) in Hollywood!

Grace Sheridan is flying high. With scorching passion from her gorgeous Brit superstar Jack Hamilton plus the lead role in a new television dramedy, she could just pinch herself. Then a demand from her show's directors to drop fifteen pounds brings her back down to earth with a thump. Forced to subsist on air, cucumbers, and boot camp, Grace wonders if the body that brings the newly crowned "Sexiest Man Alive" to his knees is just too booty-licious for Hollywood. Jack, meanwhile, seems overly enamored of the celebrity lifestyle. Forbidden by his publicity-conscious manager to reveal his relationship with Grace, he's hitting the industry party scene way too hard.

As Grace's bod incites fiery debate about the message of "thin is in," Jack's jealous fans are downing the hate-erade, viciously slamming her curves. Grace longs for Jack's support, but he's showing up late and disheveled to her most important moments. With tempers between them flaring, Hollywood's most talked-about redhead might have more to lose than a few stubborn pounds. She and Jack were clearly made for each other - but will the day ever come when they can walk the red carpet together, hand in hand?

    "Awesome!"
    If you could sum up The Redhead Plays Her Hand in three words, what would they be?

    Heartbreaking, romantic and FINALLY :)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Redhead Plays Her Hand?

    The ending


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

    She is amazing and really brings the books to life! I actually prefer this series in audio rather than reading because the narration is the best.

    I laughed and cried..

    Great series performed by a great narrator

    "So in LOVE with Jack and Gracie"
    What did you love best about The Redhead Plays Her Hand?

    how the series is really about the relationship and the plot centers around the characters. You can really see how these two would be attracted to each other and why their relationship is special


    What did you like best about this story?

    it was smart, funny and well written, but it wasn't fluffy. It had real emotion and real challenges for the couple


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

    she has a great voice, she delivers jokes well, you can feel the characters excitement, happiness and sadness by the way she delivers their lines. she is great.


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

    the whole book was moving...


    Any additional comments?

    great series. great writing. great narration.

    "Everyone Sounds The Same!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I am torn, as I am a fan of Alice Clayton's Redhead series, but the performance of the audiobooks are missing something.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Redhead Plays Her Hand?

    The ending was pretty epic.


    Did Keili Lefkovitz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Kelli was great as the main character, but all of the other characters sounded just like her. The main man was British, but in the story he sounded just like Grace. I am spoiled by readers who do accents I guess....


    Any additional comments?

    Grace was great, I wish that the other characters' personalities came through as well in the audiobook series.

    "Fantastic Ending"

    This is may favorite Redhead book! I was really concerned about Jack for awhile there. I hated seeing that side of him, but was glad Grace could pull him through it!
    I have always enjoyed the humor in these books, but this one also took on the serious subjects of weight, alcohol and drug abuse. I applause you Alice Clayton!

    "Finally the conclusion"

    Alice Clayton is a very funny and realistic writer in the sense of the characters attitudes, quirkiness and quips. I love the sarcasm and the deeper issues addressed, i.e. the body image issues in this country. That being said, once I began to listen, I was laughing again, thank you Alice for that! I wanted to beat the crap out of our hero many times, and calling him a hero is a gross overstatement. I know he is 24, I know at 24 we are often times immature and stupid, however, Jack totally acted like an A$$ in this one, I can't believe Grace put up with him honestly. I see that he still loves her, but seriously!!! I needed the conclusion so for that I am glad I listened, over all I enjoyed the series and like the author, I could even be friends with Grace, she's funny and sassy! She stands on her own two feet and I love a strong woman.

    I am probably a bit jaded because I LOVE the alpha males and Jack just isn't. I liked early on their light and fun seemingly easy relationship, but her really tried my patience in this book. He redeemed himself, mostly and hopefully will grow up a lot. The age difference was a constant reminder (9 years) which I know is unorthodox when the woman is older, but really, it was a constant issue in this book, along with her weight. We only had 3 main themes in this book, age, weight and his partying. There could have been a lot more depth and growing to be done between the couple but I didn't see it. If this were the first book in the series, I probably wouldn't have continued.

    All that said, Alice Clayton is a good writer, funny and clear. That I respect and appreciate.
