The Redhead Trilogy by Alice Clayton

4 The redhead was book club hit!!

We are so bad at getting our book club reviews out!! We have been done with this trilogy for about 2 months and we meet on a regular basis.  However we tend to talk all books and everything about life.. and always forget to discuss the book of the month!! So I thought I would put a picture of each book and the blurb, then our thoughts for each one? Hopefully that works, we weren’t planning on doing 3 at once it just happened. Also, this review will contain tons of spoilers!!!!


book 1
Paperback, 276 pages
Published February 16th 2010 by Omnific Publishing (first published January 1st 2010)
Original Title The Unidentified Redhead
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.

Favorite Part of book one…
Charlotte –  Their date on the beach is my favorite part, Jack actually gets to be himself instead of movie star Jack.  Everything seems to go perfect until well it doesn’t.
AB– That was the same thing I was going to say!! My favorite part is when it doesn’t go well, the bird pooping  on her was hilarious!!
Charlotte –  Oh the steamy scenes in this book were fan yourself worthy!
AB – Yes they were, his obsession with her *ahem* girls was unbelievably sweet and cute.
*All in all book one had everything you could possibly need with the steamy scenes, and hilarious banter that reminded me of the Gilmore Girls!

book 2
Paperback, 1st Edition, 228 pages
Published September 28th 2010
Original Title The Redhead Revealed
ISBN 1936305380 (ISBN13: 9781936305384
As their careers catch fire, Grace and Jack — everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed, funny, and feisty couple — find themselves on opposite coasts. Grace has landed in New York City, where she loves being onstage again, particularly because she’s 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.

Wait, it’s just friendship, right?

Meanwhile, in L.A., Jack can scarcely keep up with the swirling throngs of women who track him everywhere he goes, the endless press appearances, and the ridiculous rules his manager, Holly, keeps concocting 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 this duo survive swirling rumors, the demands of their chosen professions, Grace’s raging internal battles, and a whopping nine-year age difference?

Tick-tock, the clock is ticking. Isn’t it?

Alice Clayton brings the second installment of a tale told with her magical mix of humor and heat, so cuddle up under the sheets and flip on the Golden Girls. Grace and Jack are at it again

Favorite part of book 2…
Charlotte – After she ruins his first premier for him, Jack still comes to her opening night.   The note he writes to her on her opening night is adorable and sweet.
AB – When she comes home and sees what he placed on her fridge.  This guy is just so charming in book 2 I couldn’t believe it!
Least favorite part of book 2…
both –  lack of communication was horrible.  They just kept getting their wires crossed and instead of being adult like and talking it out they just assumed a lot.  Which we know is part of chick lit but it seemed over done in this book
book 3
Paperback, 320 pages
Published December 17th 2013 by Gallery Books
ISBN 1476741255 (ISBN13: 9781476741253)
Grace has landed the lead in a new TV series—but when the director asks her to lose fifteen pounds, she goes public with her weight struggles and suddenly develops a huge fan club who support her right to have curves. But between that and the public’s continuing fascination with her “are they or aren’t they” relationship with Jack, Grace begins to wonder if anyone’s really interested in her because of her upcoming TV series, or if it’s all speculation about the size of her ass and her bedroom partner.

Meanwhile, Jack is voted the Sexiest Man Alive and becomes a little too enamored with the party-hard lifestyle. Grace vows to give him the space he needs to find himself, but then he begins to spiral down from lovable Brit to Hollywood brat. People are talking, but are Jack and Grace? Her career is on the rise, and his continues into the stratosphere, but will she be able to catch him if he falls? Will they ever be able to just be a couple who can hold hands when they walk down the street?

Favorite part book 3
both – The engagement scene!!! it was so sweet… Jack is a charmer.
Least favorite part
Charlotte – He completely disregarded Grace the whole book!! Almost like she was beneath him.
AB – They both “hooked up” with other people.  I couldn’t believe that you are so heartbroken you sleep with someone else???? wth.
biggest surprise in book 3
Charlotte– Holly becoming a mom and marrying Michael.
AB – The fact that sweet, loving Jack had a jackass side!
All in all we both highly recommend this series!!
