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.
I’ve had this and the 2nd book in the series on my kindle for months – a black Friday splurge I’m still reading through. Why I didn’t start with this one? Is BEYOND ME! And I ask myself that question every time I start an Alice Clayton book – because the girl is kind of my writing soul sister. She gets my sense of humor – and the little references she makes about NKOTB and My So Called Life makes me love her that much more.
She’s hilarious – snarky – and above all else sexy as hell without being raunchy. Anyone who read and loved Wallbanger needs to check the Redhead series out – I’m onto the 3rd book after I read the last 40 books still on my kindle … I swore I wouldn’t 1click anything until I finished every last book on my Kindle – stupid I know.
I can’t get enough of Grace because although she’s hopelessly flawed – she laughs at her self. The girl has THE best sense of humor I’ve ever read. She knows her flaws – admits them – and makes fun of them before anyone else can. And Jack loves her in spite of it all – and maybe just maybe because of her quirks. Which makes me swoon for him all the more.
Anyone who can love that much crazy and awkward gets a gold star in my book!
Grace: “I found it funny watching Holly lecture anyone on control, because I once saw her chase Donnie Wahlberg across a Carl’s Jr. parking lot to get an autograph. New Kids were definitely her Achilles’ heel.”
Grace: “Then he touched my skin. Purposefully. Pointedly. Nowhere near platonically. Sparks. Sparks. Sparks. Hot sparks. Flashing sparks. Lightning bolt sparks. Hal Sparks? Jesus, Mary, and Joseph sparks.”
Grace & Jack: “I was still struggling with my iPod. “Can I help you with that?” he asked, trying to help. “I can’t get this into the little hole,” I answered. “That’s what she said,” we both said, at the same time. We were stopped at a stoplight, and we stared at each other. “You might be the most perfect girl I have ever met.” he said, looking at me in amazement.
Holly: “So, how is the British invasion going? Has he invaded your hoohah yet?”
Grace: “Which was troubling because soon all this fantastic was going to have to end. And as all true Scarlett’s do, I decided to think about that tomorrow. I snuggled back into his arms and tried to put all this out of my head.”
