BLOG TOUR: The Redhead Plays Her Hand – Alice Clayton + Review & giveaway!

Released: December 13th, 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?
"And in that moment, I realized how out of control everything had become."

My God, my God, my God. One freaking word: HOLY-SHIT-I-THINK-I-TURNED-INTO-A-PUDDLE. This book was hilarious, beautifully written and the ultimate representation of the pressures of hollywood life on young stars. It was such an accurate portrayal and such a romantic and frustrating love story to follow. Fantastic work!

We can really see the development in characters here compared to the previous books.

Grace. I continue to love Grace inconsiderably. I have to admit that she isn't as funny as people make her out to be but I love how she stays true to herself and that she actually works for what she wants. She wants to have her own TV show? She'll work her ass off for it!

But, in the end, she realizes that it all comes down to her decisions. She can't change for people if she doesn't want to. If she doesn't believe in the change.
Big, small, curvy, or bony, beauty was beauty. I was healthy. I was exactly the size I was supposed to be, and that was it.
Let me just…

God bless you woman just God bless.

I think this is the main problem with society today and Alice Clayton brings this up honestly and bravely in her novel. With all the pressure that society and movies and stars put on us, everyone becomes insecure and closed-off with who they are. 

But here, Grace challenges us and dares us to be exactly who we are and that is simply inspirational.

On the other hand, Jack is the polar opposite. While Grace doesn't fall into the shoves and harsh comments of social media, Jack succumbs to the temptations and becomes weighed down by this spotlight. 

He's the representation of musicians, celebrities, actors, etc. out there who have fallen in a downward spiral. But thank goodness he brought himself up again in the end. I was getting pissed off at him and actually rooting for Grace to dump his sorry ass.

Generally, a fantastic, amazing read! Loved it!

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…
