When I first started reading this, I got the sense that I might actually have a four-star on my hands. By the time I got to the end, I was thinking, OK, maybe only three stars. Even giving it three stars, however, seemed wrong somehow. I contemplated reviewing it yesterday (when I finished it), but wasn't even sure what I would rate it, much less what I could possibly write about it. So I semi-read it again. I skimmed through, rereading parts I'd thought were funny, scrutinizing passages that se ...more

What a fun book!! The perfect blend of funny (hilarious actually!), sassy, sexy, goofy and swoony! Definitely the a great lighthearted read for after a very emotional book :)

The book had me laughing out loud more times than I could count. Its a fun, romantic story about Grace Sheridan, a 33 year old actress giving Hollywood a second shot, and Jack Hamilton, the 24 year old next hotshot bigtime Hollywood star actor. They meet by chance at a party and have this really flirty, fun connection. She
Quirky, sexy, fun with lots of heart. I loved it!
4.5 stars!

Grace Sheridan has always had stars in her eyes and wanted to be ”famous, famous, god damned famous.” After a failed attempt straight out of college, she is now 33-years-old and has moved back to LA.
I became one of those sad sacks— I only lasted in Los Angeles for eighteen months. I limped away, feeling like a failure for the first time in my life. I let the city and the industry beat me. But now I was back. It took me ten years to m
4,5 Crazy Stars!

So, Grace, aspiring actress, moves to LA with Holly, her best-friend and a talent manager. One night she meets Jack, that had just being chosen for the role of main actor in the movie adaptation of short erotic stories that are making the women crazy (Is just me or this is basically the “50 Shades of Grey Effect” in fiction?), so he’s basically in the rise to stardom.
She is a few years older than him, nine to be exactly and things start pretty lightly and in a “friends” base bet
Two words - FREAKING HILARIOUS! What a great book!! I literally laughed my way through the whole thing. The banter is absolute perfection!

So first we have Grace who is a crazy, feisty, witty, 33 year old. And then there is 24 year old Super Sexy Jack Hamilton... celebrity, gorgeous, funny, sensational name, and he's British with a hot accent. Score!

I love these characters, I wish they were real. Hell, I wish I was Grace and could have my very own Jack! They are both foul mouthed, smutty and sarc

I'm going to do another one of my reviews in reverse, where I get the small gripes out of the way before stating why the book was worth my time.

My review pendulum is going crazy over this book. I know my thoughts are sitting at around a 3.5 star rating but I don't know whether to round up or down! Unidentified Redhead was a fun and sexy read. In fact, it was repeatedly fun and sexy.

So what's the problem you ask? Well let me go right ahead and answer that for you. I'm going to ask you to imagine

Grace Sheridan is a 33 year old aspiring singer/actress who currently lives with her best friend Holly.

She meets up and coming heartthrob, Jack Hamilton and is smitten over the English actor. Only problem is he is only 24 and a hot commodity.

Jack is so sweet, hot and funny!

Why does this book have high ratings? So annoyed. Grrr

This was one stupid, draggy, obnoxious, idiotic, atrocious, boring, unbelievably irritating read for me. I hate this book. Downright hate it. I don't think I have ever hated a book but I hate this with so much passion. From the beginning to the very end, I hated it.

Grace Sheridan is a fool. That's what she is. She is thirty fucking three years old and behaves a lot more immature than my eight year old cousin. I don't know if there exists any
My Grace and Jack:

Grace Sheridan, a 33 years old actor wannabe, tries her luck in Hollywood for the second time. When she meets sexy British rising star, Jack Hamilton, they "click" immediately. They understand each other, chemistry is there too but Jack is 9 years younger... Can this fact prevent them from having affair?

At first, I was kind of reluctant to read about romance with that much older woman. Nine years is a lot, especially when one from the couple is young man like Jack. I was not su

Did you ever read a book that you just LOVED so much that you had "butterflies" in your stomach?
Well, this book had me feeling this way.
AND reading it for the second time didn't diminish those feelings whatsoever.
If anything, they were INTENSIFIED!!

I can't believe I forgot how amazing this story is and just how PERFECT Jack and Grace are.

Grace is beautiful inside and out.

I think I have just read one of the funniest books in a very very long time!! I LOVED it...I LOVED Jack and Grace...I LOVED EVERYTHING about this book!!! Jack and Grace are now one of my favourite couples.

Jack and Grace's story was amazingly well written addictively so..transferring every day sarky school boy humour and quick wit into a written piece of work which is really hard to achieve!! I literally laughed so hard till I cried and suffered from an achy jaw to an achy tummy from laughing and

OMG! I LOVED this book! It was hilarious, laugh-out-loud funny. I adored the relationship between Jack

and Grace.

I loved their banter, their pet names, and how they could just laugh and have a great time together. I really enjoyed the relationship that Grace shared with her best friend, Holly. They were funny together, as well. The scene where Holly and their gay friend were sitting on the stairs with popcorn was so freak

This book had me conflicted. It started off rather well; very funny. I liked the characters and the story plot or at least the concept and where it started out. The cast of secondary characters was nice too. But, it didn’t work all the time for me and in the end, fell very short of the mark.

What did I like / not like -- in this case the exact thing you appreciate may be the books Achilles heel:
1 – Humor. Grace was a total nut job and had such a sense of humor. She was almost British in h
This was such a fun, sexy, smutty read. I smiled and laughed throughout the story. The banter between Grace and Jack was very cute. Even though Jack is 9 years younger than Grace, I liked that he didn't let that get in the way and the chemistry between them was hot! I will definitely pick up the next book from this author.

3.5 Stars

Hilarious, sexy, emotional... it's very rare, no matter how emotionally invested I am in a story, that I physically shed a tear or burst out laughing!

The Unidentified Redhead had me doing both! It's one of those books that you can't put down but wish you could avoid reading when anybody else is around. One of those books that has you smirking without realising, snorting tea through your nose and eventually wiping the tears from your eyes!

Absolutely loved both the characters. It was refreshing t
I'm trying really hard to get through this book, but I'm having a really difficult time. I feel like I'm reading a really bad attempt at a comedy version of 90210 the later years. This book has more cliche's then any book I have ever read. It feels like the author just watch a bunch of over the top unrealistic movies about life in LA, and that's where her research ended. This book just tries so hard. Nothing in it feels natural. The attempt at jokes are over the top, and even the friendship betw ...more

Don't you just love when you start reading a book having no expectations whatsoever one way or another and then you discover after reading only 20 pages that this is one of those books you'll just LOVE forever? This book and its sequel The Redhead Revealed were those books for me.

I was so in love with every page of this story that I didn't want it to end ... ever. Ms Clayton is not just a great storyteller; she creates characters that you wish you knew in real life. Her writing style is so enga

Sweet Nuts and Nuts Girl. God how I love this book. The writing was fresh, funny and wonderful. Our heroine, Grace, is whip-smart funny and completely lovable. I can completely relate to her sense of humor and I spent many pages reading and laughing out loud. I never laughed so hard at some of the things she says to her Brit. There were so many countless times I had to place my head in my hands and say to myself, "she just did not say that out l

Holy Sweet Nuts! I absolutely LOVED this book!!!! Are you PMS-ing? In a bad mood? Just read a depressing book? Do you need to feel good, laugh, smile, and just plain enjoy a book without angst? This is the book for you. This is definitely in my best books of the year list, and Alice Clayton is one of my new favorite authors.

This is a 5++++++++ star read for me with a 4.5 on the heat meter. I found myself smiling through the whole bo
3.5 stars. There was a lot of ALMOST sex in this book. Too much. Too much rubbing and stroking and sucking and almost doing the deed but not quite getting there. I was sexually frustrated. By the time they finally fucked, it was almost anticlimactic (see what I did there?). But the banter was fantastic and the story line was pretty darn good too.

The audiobook narration was fantastic. I am noticing that the narrators for het romances seem to be much better than those in the MM arena. Why is that?
Wow! This book was the perfect mixture of smart, funny, sweet, sexy and sassy! I loved it! Grace was hilarious! And Jack was so funny and charming! There banter back and forth just cracked me up! I loved Holly too. Cannot wait to dig in to the second book!

Yes I want us to hang out in our onesies and do each others hair while watching the golden girls. OK maybe that's going too far, but you get the picture. This book was hilariously fabulous! I was doing this most of the time:


I fell in love with Wallbanger and I decided to give this book a try. Well Alice Clayton does not disappoint, except on the fact that she loves to build up sexual tension. There's a good 5 chapters with just oral sex, but

No doubt about it, and absolute 5 star read for me.

I just can't stop gushing about this booked. I loved it! Thanks for the recommend Stacia!

It was such a fun and sexy read and I absolutely adored the characters of Grace and Jack, not to mention Holly, Grace's friend. The interaction between those two was too funny.

I read this book with a stupid grin plastered on my face the whole way through. It was such a mood lifter and exactly what I was looking for.

This book is sexy hot too! Jack will prett
I absolutely, thoroughly and unabashedly loved Alice Clayton’s ‘The Unidentified Redhead’.

Grace Sheridan is back and la la Land better get ready! At age thirty-three Grace has decided to re-try the Hollywood circuit and throw herself into being happy. She has moved in with her talent agent bestie, Holly, and is tackling the fame game. At a hip Hollywood party, Holly introduces Grace to Jack Hamilton. . . aka ‘Super Sexy Scientist Guy’. Jack is a twenty-four year old British actor who has just la

So this book is just so much FUN (and so HOT)!!!


First i got to say, that this is ultimately a fangirl book, well a fangirl fantasy.
I mean who never had any fantasy with an actor?
*yes, i'm pointing at you*
We all had (or have *cough*) those moments, all wrapped in what i like to call, my own personal bubble of joy.

Anyway, this is the story, of Grace and Jack, of Nuts Girl and Sweet Nuts, of Gracie and the new "it" boy of the entertainment industry. He is one of the most talked actors and have on
I did this book a disservice. Immediately after reading Wallbanger, I went looking for more books by Alice Clayton. Seeing that The Unidentified Redhead was by the same author, I immediately bought it.

Right after starting this book, I found out another book I had been looking forward to would be released soon. I thought I would be able to finish Redhead before the other book came out but…that didn’t happen. So, I put this down to read (the very funny) Troubles and Treats. Then, just as I was re

The Story
Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles for a second chance in the entertainment industry. She rooms with her best friend Holly, who manages a talent agency. Grace meets the hot Hollywood newcomer Jack Harrison at Holly’s company launch party and they smoothly hit it off. They’ll enjoy the benefits of a sizzling chemistry as Grace works through their nine-year age difference and avoids the Paparazzi. Then, an opportunity of a lifetime could
Okay before I even start this... let's just get some of the images in my head out of the way. I have a strange urge to play NKOTB on my ipod, turn on re-runs of the Golden Girls and watch License to Drive like right now!

This was me through 80% of this book. I love Alice Clayton's ability to infuse humor into her books and still keep them steamy. There is something so hot about the easy wit and sexual tension between her characters. You feel like they truly like each other with more than just the
The Unidentified Redhead is book 1 in the Redhead series, by Alice Clayton. First I gotta say this is the premier winner for the frequency of ROFLMAO . What fun, corny humor rules!

Ok, being a redhead, I relate to the story. But, red hair on gals is awesome, from MY perspective. On guys, the lucky ones keep this color, and hair, later in life when most of their age piers are bald or grey. My grandfather had red hair in his 80's.

Maybe someone reading this review will tell me what a Dirty Martin
So scrumptious....

Witty dialogue? Check.
British accent? Check.
Funny sex? Check.
Laughing my ass off? Check.

I loved every second of this book, and I can't wait to read the next.

“He pushed me back up against the door, slamming me against the doorbell. I heard it ring out.
"Coming!" I heard Holly say as she clicked across the floor to the front door.
"Not quite, but she’s close." He chuckled, removing his hand and leaving me breathless and rosy cheeked.”
