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 executives’ careers in his well-groomed hands. Nothing is beyond Warner’s reach…until he meets her.

Stunning, tantalizing and perverse, Taddy 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. Before she can love him, Taddy must meet her worst fears head-on or risk losing it all, including herself.


The Manhattanites is an extended modern erotic romance series of full length juicy melodramas multilayered on love, friendship, scandal, and drama to the hilt. Fans who watch TV shows like Girls (HBO), Mistresses (ABC/BBC Drama), and The Bold & the Beautiful (CBS) love The Manhattanites series. Avery's characters are over the top. They have raunchy sex, speak their minds and always get what they want. Each novel may be read as a stand alone, features an HEA for every couple and has no cliffhangers.


This book was amazing!  Really, I would love to give it SIX bars but I just don't have a graphic for it. Avery Aster did a fantastic job with this story.  I have yet to read Undressed but you better believe I can't get my hands on it fast enough to read about more characters in her Manhattanites series.

Now, having spent no time in NYC myself I am thinking that I definitely need to weasel my way into a trip sometime in the near future.  The characters in the story are naughty, successful and gorgeous. I love, love, love Taddy Brill and her friends, Vive, Lex and Blake.  These four are an absolute hoot when they are together.  Each of them has their vices and a naughty mouth that will keep you begging for more!  Actually, reading Unscrupulous reminded me a lot of watching Sex and the City only one friend is a gay married man and they all have a lot that wild Samantha side to them which made this so much fun to read.

Then you have Warner Truman who is the whole package when you think SEX.  The man is a god!  I will keep him up on my shelf firmly next to Christian Grey and Gideon Cross as far as dominant sexy alphas are concerned.  Of course he's hung like an "anaconda" according to Taddy and the revelation when she finally sees it had me in tears.  But he's also a hardcore romantic, always seeking Taddy's commitment before they move any further.  Gotta love hot sexy, alpha males with a heart of gold!

Favorite quotes:
From the Brill, Inc. employee handbook on crying in the office ...
"You are permitted on occasion to whimper, whine and snivel.  But under no circumstance shall you blubber, sob or bawl."

Taddy's internal monologue is absolutely priceless ... "Sweet Jesus on a Saltine Cracker, you're a freaky deaky."

Lastly, this line from the book just had me in fits ... "She set her fork on the plate, expecting him to reveal secret ESP sex powers.  Lord, he made her va-jay-jay trip into a gumdrop fit without any drugs."

In short, the book is incredibly sexy and laugh out loud hilarious. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did! 


Avery Aster pens erotic romance for Ellora's Cave. As a resident of New York's Upper East Side and a graduate from New York University, Avery gives readers an inside look at the city's glitzy nightlife, socialite sexcapades and tall tales of the über-rich and ultra-famous. "I write about what I see in my metropolis that never sleeps--Manhattanites on the quest for a passionate thrill," Avery says. "By and large, my characters are drop-dead gorgeous, ripped straight from the headlines and on the hunt for their next conquest.”

UNDRESSED #1 (Lex & Massimo) launched The Manhattanites series, exploring people's forbidden desires of lust and longing. UNSCRUPULOUS #2 (Taddy & Warner) is the highly anticipated prequel releasing August 14, 2013. Also, stay tuned for the sequel with UNSAID #3 (Blake & Miguel) coming winter 2013.
