The Redhead Revealed

The Redhead Revealed - Alice Clayton Update as of April 19, 2013. Just want to publicly state that since reading this book (in mid 2011) I have had to make a decision about my personal opinion on pulling fanfiction to publish for money. And I have come down on the side of Not Okay. Hard. This book came out before the Twilight fanfiction fandom exploded with greed. This practice has broken the fandom in two, and it has broken long-standing friendships into pieces. I will not change my original review, because I *did* feel all those emotions. Sadly it would have made SO much more sense if I had read it about Edward and Bella.ETA: It has been brought to my attention that, apparently, this may not have been twilight fanfiction originally (before being pulled to publish in this form), but the even creepier variation of Real People Fiction, starring Robert Pattinson and an original character, which makes me REALLY happy I never read the original fic, and only marginally happier that what I read had been cleansed with that specific atrocity.Original review:Better than the first? hell yeah. Ended with a teaser for next book? you bet. Am I going to buy the next one? why, of course.This is seriously fun, sexy and happy, with a twinge of sad and confused thrown in for good measure. Just like life is. (Only we should all be so lucky as to meet a Jack Hamilton, huh?)I notice I keep going back over some chapters in my mind, giggling a bit, or thinking a bit more about the *godawful* life our celebs have. So, excellent book. Fun and witty. Well written, with flowing sentences that never promises anything they do not later deliver. Great. Fun. Alice!!!thanksanna
