“I laughed and panted accordingly at all the good parts.” ~Under the Covers

In the second book of the Redhead series, Grace is in New York making her Broadway debut and working with old college flame, Michael.  All while Jack is back in LA (and traveling all over) to promote the big premiere of TIME.  Long distance relationships are hard enough as it is, but an insecure older woman and some nasty paparazzi can make them almost impossible.

I still love Jack.  I still like Grace.  I still think they have great chemistry together.  They drive this series forward well because we want to know more about them and see them together.  But where I enjoyed every second of Grace’s frenetic mind in the first book, it started getting on my nerves in this book.  For a 30+ woman, she’s not very mature.  And as much as she’s tried to work on her insecurities, about her age and the way she looks, she’s still very much that fat insecure girl in her mind.  The one that doesn’t deserve the best.  The one that shouldn’t be looked at.  And the one that doesn’t take criticism well.  I can’t wait to see her overcome that crutch.

THE REDHEAD REVEALED was an interesting installment in the series, and one I enjoyed reading.  I laughed and panted accordingly at all the good parts.  Now I’m ready to get somewhere deeper and see some growth.  And maybe this is just me, but I would like it better if the characters aren’t trying so hard to be funny and quirky all the time.

About Alice Clayton

Alice Clayton is a 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. 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 three novels, The Unidentified Redhead,The Redhead Revealed, and coming soon in November 2012, Wallbanger. She 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, set to release in Spring of 2013, continuing the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace.

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast, make sure you check them out at notyourmotherspodcast.com or over 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 Mt. Alice 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...

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
