Title: The Redhead Plays Her Hand
Author: Alice Clayton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 17, 2013


The third sexy novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s playful and erotic Redhead series continues the sizzling romance between actress Grace Sheridan and Hollywood’s hottest leading man Jack Hamilton. 

Grace has landed the lead in a new TV series—but when the director asks her to lose fifteen pounds, she goes public with her weight struggles and suddenly develops a huge fan club who support her right to have curves. But between that and the public’s continuing fascination with her “are they or aren’t they” relationship with Jack, Grace begins to wonder if anyone’s really interested in her because of her upcoming TV series, or if it’s all speculation about the size of her ass and her bedroom partner.

Meanwhile, Jack is voted the Sexiest Man Alive and becomes a little too enamored with the party-hard lifestyle. Grace vows to give him the space he needs to find himself, but then he begins to spiral down from lovable Brit to Hollywood brat. People are talking, but are Jack and Grace? Her career is on the rise, and his continues into the stratosphere, but will she be able to catch him if he falls? Will they ever be able to just be a couple who can hold hands when they walk down the street?

Simone's Review

*ARC received in return for an honest review

Now when it comes to Alice Clayton and her books I am such a fan girl, I love her style of writing which is in a league of its own!! So getting a chance to read an ARC of the third instalment of Grace & Jack I was all kinds of CRAZY Excited to spend the next couple of hours with my favourite Brit boy and my red head girl with the sparkly boobies!!

Grace and Jack are my favourite comedy, romantic couple. The sexy banter between them is saucy, steamy and damn sexy but at the same time they have you bursting into a fit of giggles with their quick witted pillow talk between the sheets.

So we start off with Grace and Jack still trying to keep their relationship under wraps from the social media who are hungry for their sexy scientist movie star Jack, and don't want just a piece of him they want all of him and will do whatever it takes to get that shot or that story!! Grace feels that her Brit boy is still young and needs to let his hair down, so she's supporting him to go out and promote himself and his career. Grace's career is also just starting to take off with the first episode of her series being a instant overnight hit. Are they strong enough to cope with this fame and celebrity life style that they are both thrown into, or will cracks starts to appear along the way??

In this last instalment we get to see Jack in his most insecure and vulnerable state. He really does not handle all the fame and attention that is being thrown in his direction as well as everyone thinks. My heart broke for Jake at times, while I found myself calling him an AssHead for not seeing through a certain person!! (mentioning  no names).

The book is titled The Redhead Plays Her Hand. And boy oh boy Grace really does play her hand. She puts her Crazy Girl  head on, arms herself with her sparkly Boobies to go bring her Brit Boy Back!!  This is when her age comes in handy, having to be the more mature one to see through the smoke screen of glitz and glamour and get rid of a few snakes that lurk in-between. Even though this book is a bit more serious than the other two it sure doesn't lack humour, but in this one I shed a few heart-breaking tears for my comedy duo along the way.  

"I'm so in love with you, Grace." He looked down at me, my sweet, broken, wonderful boy. "and I'm dying to kiss you."
I raised up on my tippy toes as he leaned down. "I'm kinda dying for you to kiss me."

I can't think of a better ending to this brilliant comedy romance but will miss my Brit Boy and Crazy Redhead! Hoping maybe, they may pop up somewhere in Alice Clayton's future novels PLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE!!

All About Alice

Alice Clayton is a novelist with an unholy love for her KitchenAid mixer. Making her home in St Louis, she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up afterwards, and is trying desperately to get her long time boyfriend to make her an honest woman. Hi sweetie!!

After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and national educator for a major cosmetics company, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career, writer. Combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, The Redhead Series.

Alice has penned three novels, The Unidentified Redhead,The Redhead Revealed, and coming soon in November 2012, Wallbanger. She thinks you should purchase them immediately. She’s not kidding, not even a little bit. Everyone needs some comedic erotica in their lives. She is hard at work on the third book in The Redhead Series, set to release in Spring of 2013, continuing the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace. 

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast, make sure you check them out at or over on iTunes. 3 women rushing towards their forties still acting like teenagers. A saucy little mix of sex, love, relationships, pop cultural, celebrity gossip and All Things Jake Ryan.

Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Mary’s, 8 hours of sleep, and a good pounding.

Finally Alice would also like all her readers and listeners to help her convince Mt. Alice that the only other thing that would make her truly happy is finally bringing home a Bernese Mountain Dog. She is totally serious. And done talking about herself in the third person…
