Let me first address the obvious before I get to the meat of things. Yes, the cover is like 80's paperback or something, maybe even the 70's, and I HOPE Ava Lovelace would give it a makeover because the dude with the handlebar mustache (maybe it's the lighting but it looks like he has one) isn't cutting the sexy.
On to the plot and the smut! LUMBERFOX is an erotica novella and the first of ALovelace's Geekrotica series. LUMBERFOX is a quick read at 43 pages with a very simple plot and this sexy nooner is packed with smoldering sexy times between Tara and Ryon. There's really nothing much to the story except for these two meeting in the middle of a traffic jam and getting it on like Donkey Kong later. Tara was in a hurry to get home to try her brand-new BoB, which she still got to use later on, and Ryon serendipitously rear-ended her (pun intended!). Ryon's condo unit is conveniently close to where they are and graciously invited Tara for a hot meal (and more) and a warm place to wait out the storm. The funniest moment was when Tara's toy started vibrating as Ryon was checking for damages inside her car. That sure broke the ice between the two and kicked-off their snowstorm sex marathon.
And boy was it hawt! These two could undoubtedly melt the ice outside from their lovin alone. I like the fact that there was no hint of "love" or a budding romance. LUMBERFOX was very straightforward in painting a classic hook-up picture where two consenting adults went after what they wanted. That said, I really didn't feel it was "geek" enough except for Tara's random mentions of geek terms and the need for a safe word confused me as well. The conflict was a little flimsy but understandable, Tara for minute misinterpreted Ryon's aloofness as rejection and due to how they met, the morning after can indeed be awkward. Still, LUMBERFOX was an enjoyable escape, looking forward to the next one. (less)

REDHEAD REVEALED is what I call "Gracie's Moment", this sequel is full of longing as Jack and Grace work their relationship via long distance amidst their respective budding careers. Basically REDHEAD REVEALED is about balance, Jack, especially Grace, stumbled but soon found their way but not without a glitch. Before The Unidentified Redhead ended, Grace and Jack have defined their relationship and with Jack's star on the rise, Grace was shoved into the spotlight herself. As she's relatively unknown and much older than Jack, Grace's insecurities surfaced, caught up with her and gave her a meltdown. Some people would find this annoying but as AClayton really set the stage perfectly from every angle, Grace's "moment" was justified. People are quick to judge her and have labeled her all sorts of ugly names pertaining to her age (she's older than Jack by 9 years) and how everyone feels Jack could do "better" and Grace cracked under pressure. REDHEAD REVEALED was full of heart and Grace really bared her soul in this one. Her struggle to feel worthy of Jack was more of a testament to her insecurities than Jack's love. As for Jack, this boy is so lovable! The way he consoled, reassured and affirmed his feelings for Grace was knee-buckling and panty-melting! (less)

THE UNIDENTIFIED REDHEAD is the funnest in the trilogy. Basically it's your boy-meets-girl story and it was told in a witty flirty way. Gracie and Jack's chemistry is undeniable and the banter was snappy and very engaging. I love the pace and the tone of THE UNIDENTIFIED REDHEAD, AClayton painted Gracie and Jack's budding relationship as something very easy going. Two people falling in love and going with the flow without thinking where their attraction would lead and what being in a relationship would entail. Jack and Grace's "honeymoon stage" will make you heady and giddy, THE UNIDENTIFIED REDHEAD is pumped with pheromones and happy hormones it would be impossible for anybody not be swept by Jack and Grace's whirlwind romance.
