The third sexy novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s playful and erotic Redhead series continues the sizzling romance between actress Grace Sheridan and Hollywood’s hottest leading man Jack Hamilton. 

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?

My Review:

Sweet Nuts and Crazy Girl are backkkkkkk!!! Alice Clayton does not disappoint with the third installment of The Redhead Series. It was funny, steamy, romantic, intense, emotional and captivating. Jack and Grace are such an amazing couple :)

In The Redhead Plays Her Hand, we get a closer look into the complicated world of Hollywood. Jack's popularity is increasing since he landed a role in a big movie, and Grace's dream of becoming an actress is finally becoming a reality. Jack and Grace are caught in the middle of this paparazzi filled world, which is causing them many ups and downs in their relationship. They both have their battles to fight. Grace is trying to make a name for herself without being associate to Jack. She stands strong with an amazing talent and a personality that will take Hollywood by storm. What she never expected was to find out how vicious people can be in this industry. After an explosive start into the Hollywood scene, Jack is on top of the world. He has everything he ever dreamed of: the love of his Crazy Girl and a promising career. But, when the pressure gets to high he starts to lose control of it all. The question is .... Is their love strong enough to survive Hollywood?

I read this series back-to-back and to be honest, I'll miss it! Jack and Grace's love story was amazing and I honestly can't get enough of these two nuts! They are hilarious, sexy, lovable and they have stolen my heart since the moment I read the first chapter of The Unidentified Redhead. I saw them grow as a couple and they have overcomed many obstacles to be together. Hollywood can be cruel and they suffered at the hands of the paparazzi. Their relationship was tested and they had to focus on what was important. They had fears to overcome and issues to deal with.

All the characters in this series are awesome! They each brought their special touch to this story. I really love when I can connect not only with the main characters, but also with the secondary ones. This book was the most emotional one out of all the series. Even if it's romantic comedy, Jack and Grace go through some difficult times. My heart broke for them. I really wanted to be there and give them a big hug and tell them that everything would be just fine! Awww! I really love these two lovebirds! I really liked all the bonus ''Hollywood Reports'' that we got throughout the book. It added an extra kick to the story and it was like getting Hollywood's POV ;)

My Rating:

I give, The Redhead Play Her Hand, by Alice Clayton 5 sensational, enchanting, sexy, entertaining stars! I really liked the ending, but I hope that we get a novella in the near future to wrap things up for these two nuts ;)

About the Author

Alice Clayton is a new novelist with an unholy love for her Kitchenaid mixer. Making her home in St Louis, she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up afterwards, and is trying desperately to get her long time boyfriend to make her an honest woman. Hi sweetie!!

After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and national educator for a major cosmetics company, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career, writer. Having never written a thing before, she found writing was the creative outlet she had been missing since walking away from the theater 10 years ago. Combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, The Redhead Series.
Alice has penned two novels, The Unidentified Redhead and The Redhead Revealed, and thinks you should purchase them immediately. She’s not kidding, not even a little bit. Everyone needs some comedic erotica in their lives. She is hard at work on the third book in The Redhead Series which will be out Spring of 2013 which will continue the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace. She has another new release coming up soon in November of 2012, all new characters, all new story, but same brand of smutty hilarity.
Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on, make sure you check them out on iTunes. 3 women rushing towards their forties still acting like teenagers. A saucy little mix of sex, love, relationships, pop cultural, celebrity gossip and All Things Jake Ryan.
Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Mary’s, 8 hours of sleep, and a good pounding.
Finally Alice would also like all her readers and listeners to help her convince her long time boyfriend that the only other thing that would make her truly happy is finally bringing home a Bernese Mountain Dog. She is totally serious. And done talking about herself in the third person…
