4.5 outrageous, vajazzled stars!!
Move over, Mr. Cross. There's a new hot billionaire in town! Warner Truman is hot, sexy, gorgeous and loaded. And I mean loaded in every sense of the word. But as hot and delicious as Mr. Warner Truman is, the heart of Unscrupulous is Taddy Brill.
Taddy is young, beautiful, successful and outrageously sexy. She knows what she wants and is not afraid to say exactly what's on her mind. She built herself an empire where she rules as a benevolent, vajazzled queen. But behind the designer clothes, the gorgeous shoes and the vajazzle lies a vulnerable young woman. I can honestly say that the Taddy's back story had me in tears.
She's the epitome of poor, little rich girl. But instead of wallowing in self-pity, Taddy grew up to be a self-assured business woman. That is not to say, she doesn't have issues. She does. But she grew up and learned to acknowledge and change them. Taddy was contented with her business and her hot meaningless affairs until she met Warner Truman.
Warner was the opposite of Taddy in every sense. He had a stable family life and was actually married for a decade until his wife died of cancer. With the death of his wife, he never thought he could fall in love again that is until Taddy of course.
Their first meeting was a comedy of errors. It was hilarious and hot at the same time. I was giggling the whole time especially when Taddy misheard his name and called him by a sound-alike name the whole time. LOL! I was so embarrassed for her but Warner was such a sweetheart, he just let her call him whatever she wants. ♥♥
Unscrupulous equates fun erotica. The humor runs toward the outrageous and raunchy but never tasteless. This is like Sex and City but younger and actually sexier. And as I mentioned before, this book actually had a lot of heart.
The secondary characters; Lex, the bankrupt designer BFF; Vive, the pill popping, gossip magazine Maven; the virginal assistant, Kiki and Blake, the married gay best friend all contributed to Taddy and Will's story. And you can't help but fall in love with them, flaws and all. I have to tell you though, I am pretty much intrigued by Blake and I'm hoping and praying that Ms. Aster will have a book for him.
So if you like to read about girls who run their world, who love their men hung, their money, their sexy shoes and their orgasms, and makes no apologies for it, then this book is for you. If you're looking for the answer to the meaning of life and the order of the universe, then this book isn't for you either. But if you're up for some fun, sexy, hot, outrageous read, then you're in luck because Unscrupulous is the book for you. ♥♥
