Back cover blurb:

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.

My review:

A warning: Do not read this book while there are children around. They will want to know why your face has gone red, why you are fanning yourself, and why you are giggling so much!

This story flows straight on from the end of The Unidentified Redhead, the first in the series, and as much as I enjoyed that first book (i.e. hugely), this one is so much better. My biggest problem with the first book was the fact that they shared a bed for so long without “doing the deed”. In The Redhead Revealed, Grace and Jack’s relationship seems much more real. Alice has done a great job of making us really care about her characters, even the minor ones, and the sexy times are plentiful and incredibly hot. There is also a lot of food in her story, and she describes it so wonderfully I feel I could go to those places and order what Grace was having.

For those of us in the know about who the Brit is really modelled on, Alice has captured him perfectly. From his clothing to his eyes to his lack of a mouth filter, we KNOW who Sweet Nuts is. I would love it if he ever read this book – and if they made it into a film… *thud*

I loved this book and couldn’t put it down. Alice is working on a third in the series, and I cannot wait to see what happens next.

My rating: 5/5
