UNSCRUPULOUS. In the city that never sleeps

"Manhattanites are noted as a jaded bunch. We own designer footwear in excess, overspend on vodka cocktails and work sunup to sundown. By accident love takes a backseat but we always find time for sex (wink)."

Unscrupulous is the second book in The Manhattanites series and an addition to the first part of the series, Undressed.
In fact you can read it as a standalone.  I did.
Since I didn't have the opportunity to read Undressed yet, I can't really say how the ambience of the whole series is.

What I know for sure is that the New York City is a background to lives full of fame, fashion, glamour and wild sex, sex in the city where the devil wears Prada *pun intended*

Above it all is a loveless, work overloaded life of loneliness.
"If Paris was called the City of Romance and Shanghai was coined the Pearl of the Orient, the Manhattan was the Metropolis for Singles. Twenty-eight percent, to be exact, of the Big Apple was indeed unhitched."

Taddy Brill aka Red, the CEO of Brill Inc., New York's most upscale and succesful PR company. She knows her business

She's the IT

A businesswoman and perfectionist, " also an obsessive masturbator, a workaholic" and a closet Domme with the liking for riding horses nude, voyeurism, vajazzling and going topless in one package.

  "I love my tits. She loved showing off her tits in the heat"

"Am I shallow? Abso-fucking-lutely! Who cares?"

My personal favourite ;D (click on it 'cause it's too flaggers friendly ;))

Her friends (female and gay) are the closest to family she's ever known.
Emancipated in a young age, abandoned as a child, she's quite a commitment phobe type.

"I never meet men with any expectations other than having a good time. Then I 'm never disappointed."

But then there's the infamous Big Daddy, "epic from head to toe and back to his other head", "hunkadoris" ;D

On a "vacation sexapade" she meets Warner Truman.

"Sweet Jesus nipplelicious"

"Her eyes counted his abs up- two (umm), four (ooh), six (holy shit), eight (he's mine)"

Man who experienced loss and heartbreak and then treachery as well in his past, who decided to never date again (and fall in love with) a woman who's only after his money.

Like Taddy, he's a self-made businessman, powerful and succesful in his international hotel chain business, what creates an immediate bond between the two. He also shares Taddy's love for tits (and that's why he seems to have found a perfect match in her ;D ).

The chemistry between Warner and Taddy is off the charts hot from the very beggining of the "after Braden Brooks va-jay-jay-idol era".

As they start to get to know each other, their feelings grow more and more...

"I knew I was in love when I couldn't fall asleep because she was lying next to me."

But will it work?

Guess I'll have to hunt for more...
