{Review} Unscrupulous by Avery Aster

SO this crazy author hair-assed me on Goodreads (no not really) wanting to know if I would read her book.. And of course I said YES because I honestly can't say NO to anyone.. I'm such a book slut ;) ANNDD she was really sweet/sassy with her hair-ass-ment that I couldn't possibly say NO!!.. 
Anyway, I downloaded this book onto my Kindle and here is what I thought about:

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 Thoughts

So I imagine that if Fifty Shades of Grey and Sex and the City had a book baby that this would be it.. 
It had both the sassy, sexy, couture of SATC and the kinky, I am going to fuck your ass and fuck you anywhere I want, like FSOG..

This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone and follows the story of Taddy Brill (AkA Tabitha Adelaide Brillford) and Warner Truman. They are both rich, moguls who run their own businesses. I liked how the author made Taddy have her own money and determination in life. She wasn't looking for someone to take care of her, she just wanted someone to give her mind blowing sex whenever she desired (what woman with a working vagina wouldn't). Enter Warner, who had all the money he wanted but was looking for an equal to share it with. He didn't want to deal with the gold digging hussies and he wanted someone with their own future and goals. 

"She came hard enough to start the day with a smile. No Baden Cosmetics rouge on her cheeks required"

It was like a match made in porn heaven. 
While Taddy got to feel Big Daddy, Big Daddy got to fill her up. But hot chemistry and mind blowing sex does not make a relationship. 
Taddy is distant and at times cold because she can't deal with her feelings. She is better at running a company not actually FEELING something for someone. Warner scared Taddy right out of her Louboutins and Warner wanted to own her mind, body, heart, and soul and of course he was used to getting what he wanted. 
Taddy was resistant, she had some trust issues stemming back from her parents being ultimate assholes. But what happens when she pushes away, will Warner let her go? Can she learn to love him?  

There was no lack of sexy in this book, it was there, it was ALL over it. Whether it was talking about sex, fantasizing about it, or actually doing it, the characters never really lacked orgasms 
(of course not unless they were too busy being CEOs and running companies and shit). 

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

There were a couple of things that put me off of this book and then there were things that I totally loved.

Dislikes: I didn't get emotionally invested with the characters. I couldn't really relate to them, my vagina was all for them but my heart and mind were a little "ehhhh".. 
Taddy's mother and father.. I still have no idea what happened there. Did her mom intentionally make her father disown Taddy? Did her dad ever talk to her? Taddy's real father was kind of obvious but did Taddy ever figure it out?? 

 Unresolved issues are the devil Bobby!!! 

Last but not least.. I will NEVER EVER read a book with the word "scrotum" and think "Oh scrotums get me hot and bothered, I love me some scrotums"... ahhhh I think I found a word I HATE worse than moist.. ;)

LIKES/LOVES: Besides using the word scrotum, the sex was freaking HOT and not just HOT but effing erotic!! I had to fan myself a few times and then take a cold shower or pretend I didn't just get totally turned on by a book and give my husband that look, like yeah we are about to do this.. look

The banter back and forth between the friends was priceless and laughing your ass off funny!! I love me some good banter. I also loved Taddy's determination (almost annoyingly stubborn, it was on the line) but she was strong and not really a whiner she took shit in stride and loved the ones that proved themselves invaluable to her. I liked that, I liked that a LOT!!

Overall I give this book a 3-3.5/5 and if you want to check it out for yourself go here:
