“The Unidentified Redhead” by Alyson Clayton (Simon & Schuster, 318 pages, in stores).

Grace returns to Los Angeles for a second shot at becoming an actress. Holly, a talent agency manager and Grace's best friend, has a lot of hot celebrities on her list. One of those is Jack, the newcomer that is all over the media and the man women everywhere are swooning over. At Holly's company launch party, Grace and Jack meet and instantly have a fun and flirty connection. What starts as friendly banter quickly turns into serious flirting. Since the chemistry between them is so strong, Grace decides to quit worrying about their nine-year age difference and jumps head first into a steamy relationship. Luckily, Jack feels the same way. As soon as the relationship gets good, an opportunity of a lifetime threatens to be the untimely end of their love story.

When I picked up this book, I wasn't sure I would enjoy it. Boy was I wrong. I found Grace to be a little neurotic, but that's why I liked her. Her wit and sassiness will keep you laughing through most of the book. The relationship and dialogue between Jack and Grace is hilarious and the nicknames are even better, but the author doesn't scrimp on sexy times which are scattered throughout the book. I think this is one of those books that you will either love or will instantly put down. This book is far from serious and will make you giggle during the most inappropriate times in the character's lives. If you're expecting a deep, thought-out plot, you won't get it in this book. The story is lighthearted, funny and keeps you flipping through the pages. Needless to say, I will be picking up the next book in the series.
