In this installment, Grace is in New York, preparing to take the off-off-Broadway stage by storm in her former college crush’s production. She’s having a blast. Grace loves New York. She loves the cast. She loves the crew. She loves working with Michael. She loves the play. But she misses Jack like crazy, and the feeling is mutual. In the beginning, they do a great job of touching base almost daily, keeping the spark alive via phone sex, and squeezing in a couple of visits. However, as the opening day for Grace’s play nears and the promotional appearances and interviews for Jack’s film increase as the movie’s release date gets closer, finding time to connect gets harder and harder – but they persevere. Jack and Grace are determined to make it work, and despite a couple of close calls with the paparazzi, things are looking good. That is, until the red carpet Hollywood premier of Jack’s movie – when Grace and Jack are finally (kinda) linked together and Grace’s emotional walls implode. And in one fail swoop, Grace breaks Jack’s heart, breaks her own heart, ruins his big night, and sends Jack in a downward spiral, successfully ticking off her best friend, Holly, to a degree she never has before. She definitely earns her nickname, Nuts Girl. Fortunately, after some soul searching, butt kicking (of her own butt), and some help from her friends, Grace finally pulls her head out of her derriere and pulls out all the stops to win back her man.
One of the things I liked about this book is that Clayton pulls no punches in showing just how illogical we women can be. There is no doubt that Grace loves Jack. It’s equally obvious that Jack loves Grace. Yet Grace, who knows the game, lets the press and the fans’ comments get to her. She succumbs to her irrational fear about the age difference between her and Jack, the fear that he’ll wake up and realize that he can do younger and better, the fear that she doesn’t deserve happiness, and she perpetrates a spectacular act of self-sabotage to reinforce all her fears. Seriously crazy! Thankfully for all involved, Jack loves her to distraction, and while he did not fare well after their breakup, he loved her so much that he was willing to give her a second chance, and she was smart enough to take it. Jack’s speech about how it’s not just him that has to accept her crazy behaviors, that her accepting him as he is, quirks and all, is why they’re perfect together, was beautiful. I also liked that while this is the second book in the series, Clayton did not attempt to put Grace and Jack on the path to their happily ever after in The Redhead Revealed. They still have bridges to cross and obstacles to overcome, so I cannot wait to start The Redhead Plays Her Hand to see how that hand plays out.
I reviewed my personal copy of this book.

Of course with every relationship comes with baggage. I honestly can't imagine dating a celebrity. If dating someone outside that industry is difficult enough, I can't imagine dealing with a celeb's entourage, paparazzi, tabloids, and fans. We see Grace deal with it as best as possible especially when he's featured on TMZ, etc. In one scene she's explaining how she sees Jack at least once a week on TV and he explains how some fan came out of nowhere and tried to kiss him. Grace being Grace asks that oh so very important question of kissing her and Jack being Jack says he didn't kiss her. Clayton could have taken the easy way out and not addressed the trust issues at hand when it comes to being and dating a celebrity, but she does it in true form. We feel Jack's frustration at having his privacy invaded and we feel Grace's anxiety at dating Hollywood's "it boy." One of my favorite scenes involves one of Grace's cast members and she's showing Grace a picture of Jack Hamilton. Grace trying to explain Jack is just comical, " `What about your boyfriend?' I heard a sexy voice behind me, with a distinctly British accent. My eyes grew wide as I slowly turned, now realizing what Leslie meant. H*** S***, Jack F****** Hamilton."
It also doesn't help that there is an age difference between them and Grace realizing that Jack has a "hot" career. I applaud Clayton for dealing with the age issue. I often wonder if men who date younger women ever feel inferior. Do they ever wonder if Candy will leave him for somebody her own age? I love that Clayton dealt with this issue and made it as realistic is possible as well as Grace's own insecurities. One of my favorite lines is from Jack as he tells Grace, "So if you think for a second I'm going to let you end this without giving me a legitimate reason, you are truly crazier than I thought. I'm in this thing with you, a willing participant, and you can't decide for both of us. Not anymore." What makes Redhead Revealed such a treat is that both characters evolve and grow separately and as a couple.
Favorite characters from The Unidentified Redhead make an appearance and we are introduced to some new ones as well including Jack's family. The wise and snarky advice Holly often gives Grace is still there and of course we can count on Holly to deliver a much needed dose of medicine to Grace.
While The Redhead Revealed is funny, it still is an emotional roller coaster. Clayton gives us that raw sensation of what it feels like to be in a long distance relationship and we see two people who clearly love each other struggle to make it work. As a reader you are wondering what could go wrong and cheering for them to work it out. Throw in people from the past and what could have been, you are left feeling the inner turmoil. How many of us wish we had a second chance of what could have been?
Alice Clayton leaves me wishing book 3 was ready, but more importantly? She leaves me wanting to have someone of my own so I too can call him George and Sweet Nuts.
