{Review} of The Unidentified Redhead by Alice Clayton

The Unidentified Redhead by Alice Clayton
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Romance, Mature, Humor

When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actress, it’s a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best-friend agent, will that dream become a reality—or at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? And when an unexpected sizzling romance with Jack Hamilton, the entertainment industry's newest “it” boy, threatens to shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life, how will that affect her career…and his?

Funny, borderline neurotic Grace is perfect in her imperfections, and the sexual chemistry between her and charming yet blissfully unaware Jack is off the charts. With laugh-out-loud dialogue and a super-steamy romance that will get your heart racing, sneaking around in L.A. and dodging the paparazzi has never been so fun.


After reading Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger and laughed out loud from beginning to end, I couldn’t wait to try another one of her novels. The Redhead series had some great reviews and I could tell the humor was going to be top notch. Clayton is definitely an author I’m going to be following, the romance, humor and drama are always written to entertain and keep the reader hooked.

The Unidentified Redhead follows Grace Sheridian who is moving back to LA and back to her dream of acting. After a failed attempt years ago, she’s ready to take on the city and find her path. Luckily her best friend has been successful in the film industry and is happy to have her BFF Holly living with her until her new place is ready. But one thing Grace isn’t prepared for is Mr. Super Sexy Science guy, Jack Hamilton who is managed by Holly. Jack and Grace hit it off but with his rise of fame, their age difference, and Graces chance at the role of her life, their relationship is challenged at every turn.

Grace is a firecracker, a woman who has experienced the negative life of Hollywood and is trying to find her place. Moving in with her best friend Holly makes up for some hilarious gossip and banter especially when their discussing Super Sexy Science Guy or just men in general. Which bring Jack into the picture when Holly introduces the two and they connect. I like the connection the Grace and Jack have when they first meet, its more of a friendship, they just get each other and can be complete “real” with each other. What I enjoyed most about Grace is her humor and how honest she is with Jack. Their relationship is definitely hot and heavy but they also just get each.

Jack is just downright adorable, he’s super sweet and honest with Grace, plus he doesn’t care about being famous. He is younger by nine years than Grace, but loves her innocence, love for her career and how she isn’t fake with him. Plus he knows how to push all the right buttons and Grace just seems to melt whenever he’s with her. The have the best nicknames for each other too, which added to how adorable these two were together, aka Johnny Bite Down! However I am worried about what is going to happen once his film is released, will he choose fame or love? I have a bad feeling Jack is going to let me down after being such a great guy in this book, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Overall I think this was a great start and entertaining insight to the life of Hollywood and romance. The secondary characters were fantastic with Holly and Nick, who were hilarious in every scene they were with especially when teasing Grace. The romance was hot! Every scene will make the readers blush with how intense Grace and Jacks passion is. The end... I'm not a fan of ending like this, it usually effect my decision to read the next one, but I'll give it a try. With the introduction of Graces’ past love and mention of Jacks supposed hook up and rise to fame, I can only see major drama ahead.


This is an adult novel with very mature sexual content suited for mature readers over the age of 18 and over. Fans of Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren and On Dublin Street by Samantha Young will want to read The Unidentified Redhead by Alice Clayton.
