Description: When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actor, it's a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best friend and agent, that dream could become a reality, but at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? Will an unexpected sizzling romance with the entertainment industry's newest 'it' boy shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life? Alice Clayton spins a playful and erotic May to December romance in this, her debut novel. Clayton's funny, borderline neurotic heroine is perfect in her imperfections, and the off the charts sexual chemistry between her and her charming, yet blissfully unaware leading man are the true heart of The Unidentified Redhead. 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.
I Give This ...
Ummm...WOW. I'm not sure were to begin with this book. First off, one should note the word erotic in the description. While, I wouldn't consider the sex in this book over the top or even really descriptive, it's definitely there. And there's a lot of it. But, it's hot. Wow, I can't believe I just said that.
I LOVED Grace. For a thirty-three old who claims to still be trying to be comfortable with her new self, she radiates confidence. What I wouldn't give to have been able to pull off some of the comments that come out of her mouth. I love the sexual and flirtatious stuff she says. It just works for who she is. She sounds like someone you would love to be friends with. Plus, I love how hard she's trying to make it in Hollywood. Her best friends Holly is a riot. I think I'll move in with them. Oh wait, I'm married and I have two kids. I don't think that will work.
I also loved Jack. Who wouldn't love the new Hollywood golden boy, who's still trying to get use to be the next big thing. I love that he's younger than Grace, but never makes her feel like it. I love how well he seems to compliment Grace. I love that he's from England and has a sexy accent. I think might be just in love...pretty sure that doesn't work with my husband either.
I was going to give this 5 stars, but towards the end I thought the sex overtook the story a little bit. It was great, but I also like the story of Grace and Jack minus the sex. But, overall, this was just a fun and sexy story. I loved the characters and the sex only made me blush a few times. I can't wait to read the next one!
