Title: Unscrupulous
Series: The Manhattanites, #2
Author: Avery Aster
Rating: 3 Shooting 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.

Review Copy

 The book begins with telling us Taddy's story of how she become who she is now, and why she's so guarded. Then we get to see Warner's life up until he meets Taddy. 
These two have each lost someone, maybe not in the same way but still they've both felt heartache. Now Warren knows Tabby is it for him. So he has to try to get her to let her guard down with him. But Taddy isn't an easy one to let. She's been hurt too much before. 

This book started out interesting, then just sort of fell flat. I got some what bored with it after the first few chapters. But then other times in the book I was very interesting in learning what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed the writing, and the characters. Taddy, and Warner were awesome together as well. 

I however, wished we had seen more of them actually together. And the only other thing that bugged me was the fact that some of Taddy's "kinks" aren't really explained. You don't ever really understand why she does some of the things she does, or if it's just fun for her. Then the other thing was when Taddy and Warner first meet. Their conversation just confused me to know end. I got the gist of what the were talking about but other than that I was totally clueless. Which probably has less to do with the book, and more to do with me. 

But I did like the book over all. Not sure if I will read the next one in the series, but I kind of am interested to see how Warner, and Tabby turn out. If you enjoy books about the "rich and famous" then I recommend this one.
