Avery Aster: Unscrupulous (ARC)

Title: Unscrupulous
Author: Avery Aster
Series: The Manhattanites #2
Release Date: August 14, 2013

My Rating: 4 Stars

At thirty-three Warner Truman is one of the richest men on the planet, a spa mogul who buys and sells resorts at will. He holds powerful executive’s careers in his well-groomed hands. Nothing is beyond Warner’s reach…until he meets her.

Stunning, tantalizing, and perverse, Taddy Brill captivates Warner’s carnal desire like no woman he’s ever met. A self-made millionaire, Taddy is tougher than steel, more brilliant than diamonds and, at twenty-seven, she’s never depended on a man for anything…until she meets him.

The more Taddy plays with Warner’s affections, driving him to erotic heights, the more she is confronted by a dark past. But before she can love him, Taddy must meet her worst fears head-on or risk losing it all, including herself.
My Review:
This book kind of blindsided me. The author's voice is fresh, witty, completely hysterical and something not easily found in today's book market. This is, for the most part, a lighthearted romantica novel that sucked me in and I could not wait to see what happened next! Now, I did not know until about halfway through that this was book #2 in a series, but it turns out I was lucky because Unscrupulous is actually the prequel in the Manhattanites series, although it does not make too much of a difference as all of the books are standalone. This book has an insane cast of characters that you love, want to slap upside the head, and can't wait to get your hands on their story. I'll be honest, at first Taddy Brill almost put me off of this book, because at times her life seemed almost too ridiculous to believe. However, I think in the end that is what I loved about this book, the ridiculousness of some of the story line helped me escape and completely immerse myself in Unscrupulous and love it even more. I wanted Lex, Kiki, Vive and Blake as my friends and to get more of a glimpse at their posh, and wondrous world. Then there is Warner, oh boy did he ever make it to the top of my book boyfriend list of 2013. He is sweet, caring, loving and the perfect hero! This was one of the books where the hero and heroine together brought out the best in each other and the reader lets out a wistful sigh when they get their happily ever after, or at least I did :). I will definitely be picking up Lex's book and I think if you enjoy a great romantica novel you should pick up Unscrupulous for sure! Unscrupulous will be be out on August 14, 2013.
