Book Shelf: The Unidentified Redhead (Redhead #1) by Alice Clayton

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.

The Unidentified Redhead is Alice Clayton’s first foray into the literacy world and is a fun and saucy read that shows Clayton has been spot on since her debut!

The Unidentified Redhead introduces readers to Grace Sheridan, a thirty-three year old aspiring actress who is on the precipice her acting career taking off. She’s fit, feeling better than ever, and ready to take on the world. Especially when she meets twenty-four year old Jack Hamilton, Hollywood’s hottest up and coming actor and a man who makes Grace weak in the knees by just one look. Age isn’t an issue when this crazy redhead and sexy Brit are together and soon what starts out as innocent sexual innuendos heads towards a romance that neither can deny is hotter than hell and downright frightening in how real and life changing it feels……

As a huge fan of Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger series, I was excited to go back to her debut series and see the novel that began her writing career. The Unidentified Redhead kicks off the Redhead series and I have to say I very much liked what I saw with this first novel. Though Wallbanger is still my preference, The Unidentified Redhead was still a fun and flirty read that feature’s Clayton’s trademark silly humour and sexy intimate moments.

Grace and Jack were a really adorable couple to follow. Grace is a strong and independent woman and Jack is the typical twenty-four year old guy—silly and sexually driven, but someone who also seemed like an old soul at times and who went neck and neck with Grace. One of the reasons these two seem to work so well is that Grace has a really silly side and is very cheeky. She’s quick to make a humorous joke and appreciated all the goofy aspects of Jack. There’s a balance to their relationship that comes across quite quickly and I thought Clayton did a great job of exploring the age gap between the two and how the difference in their ages was more an issue to the world around them than Grace and Jack themselves.

There’s a lot of physical moments between Grace and Jack and boy were they scorching. Foreplay with them is sexier than ever with our two lovers taking their time before they do the deed. I have to admit I appreciated the build-up and seeing them get to know each other. That being said, there was a lot of erotic moments between them with tongues, hands and other body parts coming into play in the lead up to the sexual consummation of this relationship.

With Jack an up and coming leading actor and Grace chasing her dream in show business, Alice Clayton ends The Unidentified Redhead at a crucial point in their lives and leaves the story open for their next chapter. I’m looking forward to seeing how these two deal with being apart and what will happen between them next!
