Unscrupulous (The Manhattanies 2) - Avery Aster

The Book
Release Date: 14 August 2013

Book 2 in The Manhattanites series

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 Opinion  3.5 STARS

**Provided by Netgalley and Ellora's Cave for an honest review**

The first thing that I have to mention is that although I loved this book, I think it should have come out before Undressed for a better continuity in the series.

Taddy is a brilliant Publicist and, she has built her company up from scratch and has the best group of friends around her from her boarding school days. She probably counts Lex as her best friend. Lex is the main character from the first book in the series.

Warner is a self made billionaire who lost his first love and wife to cancer many years ago after being married for ten years, yet he is only in his early thirties. Warner meets Taddy in St Barths when she stays at his hotel and is immediately captured by her hair and her personality.

The banter between the two kicks off and he takes her to his house, however his former fiancé is there and causes trouble. Taddy, walks off leaving him behind and without her real name.

Both think about the other during a long period without thinking that they would see each other, even though Warner has not given up hope of finding her however, after a disastrous trip to Cannes for her assistant, both Taddy and Warner meet up again when she has to bail her assistant out from jail.

There is no BDSM but there is definitely a hot alpha male intent on getting his own way, and he wants more of Taddy. He is determined to break down the barriers she hold up and to have a more permanent relationship with her. He just has to prove it to her.

A heart warming tale with a lot of sizzle.
