Book Review: Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites #2) by Avery Aster

If you are looking for an outrageous, funny, dirty read well then look no further than Avery Aster's Unscrupulous! Though this is the second book in the The Manhattanites series, it actually takes place before book one and the books can be read in either order.

Abandoned by her parents as a teenager, Taddy Brill is a self made millionaire who sits upon her Candyland PR empire throne. She is tough, hot, likes raunchy hip-hop music and getting vajazzled. (I'm not explaining that one, Google it if you must). Warner Truman (a.k.a. Big Daddy) is the third richest man in the world with resorts and spas all over the place. He is sexy, incredibly built with just a touch of sweetness. What happens when these two meet? Things get dirty - and fast!

This book actually started off a little bit slow for me.  The first meeting between Taddy and Warner was scorching, however then I just kept waiting for them to hook up again. Then this scene happened. This scene where Taddy is having a pedicure done and let's just say that she gets a little frisky with the massage chair.

"Please do not masturbate while I do your feet. I cannot take another moaning horny white woman this week."

That just made it to the top of my "favorite book quotes" list. The entire scene was absolutely hilarious and had me laughing with tears running down my cheeks for a good five minutes. From that point on it picked up more and more and then finally, Taddy and Big Daddy were at it again.

"And I bet - if I reached under this table and put my hand between your legs, you'd drip on my fingers."

Like I said this is a wild read filled with rich, dirty mouthed New Yorkers and it is just a lot of fun. Sometimes I want a lighthearted book to enjoy and Unscrupulous proved to be a fun book to escape into.

Unscrupulous will be available to purchase on August 14, 2013 at the retailers listed below.

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.


  1. Marianna!

    Thank you for such a great review. When I wrote the Orgasmic Pedicure Chapter I thought for sure the publisher was going to make me take it out. But I got to keep it in. We've all been on those humming chairs at the spa with things least Taddy has.


    1. I am so glad they left it! That was my favorite scene. :)
