Unscrupulous by Avery Aster (The Manhattanites Book 2)

Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites, #2)
Unscrupulous is my first Avery Aster novel and it definitely delivers. The writing is deft, smart and witty. Each of the characters are well defined and fully fleshed out. Taddy is independent, brash, funny and so sexy not just in appearance but also in her outlook. Warner, Taddy's Big Daddy, is definitely your dominant billionaire type but surprisingly romantic, shy and wears his heart on his sleeves. Set in Manhattan, St. Barth, Cannes and even Vancouver, the author has definitely taken the reader into the world of the hardworking elite, self made billionaires who have attained their goals and is now in part living the dream but feels the definite lack of something. Taddy's character at first seems almost superficial in her actions and innermost thinking but as the story progresses she is definitely one complex woman. She radiates that aura of being all together on the outside but a little girl in the inside. She also has that inability to ask for what she really wants for fear of losing it before she actually has it. Warner on the other hand is definitely an open book when it comes to his feelings. He feels, he wants, he loves and then plots to get what he needs. Despite the trappings of almost superficial richness and opulence, the story in the end is truly about two people trying to connect at the basic level, initially thru lust then later on where it matters the most which is their hearts. Unscrupulous, is sexy, steamy and can I just say very original, vajazzle anyone?
