“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.

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.
