The Manhattanites is an extended modern erotic romance series of full length juicy melodramas multilayered on love, friendship, and drama to the hilt. If you grew up reading Jackie Collins, Judith Krantz and Danielle Steel you will devour this series as each book may be read as a stand alone. Sex & The City fans who watch TV shows like Girls (HBO), Mistresses (ABC/BBC Drama), and The Bold & the Beautiful (CBS) love The Manhattanites series. Avery’s characters are over the top. They have raunchy sex, speak their minds and always get what they want.
Unscrupulous (#2 The Manhattanites)
Content Warning: due to graphic sex scenes, strong language, suggestive themes, mature humor, and just about everything your friends ever told you not to do–including getting vajazzled, this novel is for adults only.
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

Unscrupulous takes place in and around the same time as book 1 Undressed, this time we are following self made woman and promotions executive extraordinaire Taddy Brill. Taddy has not had it easy in her life, her parents were to busy fighting to have time to love Taddy and after she is abandoned at a private school she becomes emancipated at just 16. Taddy hasn't let any of this keep her down and has built her own company to Fortune 500 statis.
Warner Truman is also a self made man building his hotel and spa empire until he is the 3rd richest man in America. He has lost his wife and is tired of gold diggers after him just for his fortune. Meeting Taddy he is infatuated but he doesn't even know her real name.
Warner and Taddy are driven individuals who have been hurt in the past but when they come together it is electric. From the scene where Taddy leaves behind some of her crystals from her vajazzling to Warner making use of one of the walls in his penthouse the steam coming from these two is enough to use for thermodynamic power.
I really enjoy that Ms. Aster puts so much effort into her secondary characters and her locations. With a Jackie Collins feel with a more modern Sex in the City style The Manhattanites series does not disappoint.
Undressed (The Manhattanites #1) is regularly priced at $8.75 and will have an amazing 65% off the retail price at $2.99 from August 14th, the same day that Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites #2) launches, until August 27th.
Undressed(#1 The Manhattanites)
Milan’s notorious playboy, Massimo Tittoni, seems to have everything–Lamborghinis, exotic women, palaces throughout Europe and business success. Ramping up his fabric company to go global with a new apparel brand, he ruthlessly stops supplying fabrics to the American client who inspired the collection. But once they meet, what’s he willing to give to get her in his bed?
Upper East Side designer Lex Easton will be damned if she’ll let an Italian stud muffin knock her down. So what if she named her favorite vibrator after him. With Fashion Week approaching, she’ll do whatever it takes to secure the fabrics she needs to become the next Diane von Furstenburg– even sleep with her rival. But when she arrives in Europe the paparazzi chronicles her every move and she finds herself in a situation never imagined. Lex’s Louboutins stilettos are dug in deep to win this war. All’s fair in love and fashion!
Avery Aster’s super-glossy debut novel is loaded with passionate escapism, pitting American ambition against Italian tradition. Erotic romance fans who appreciate extended sex scenes, witty banter and glamour mustn’t miss Undressed.

Learned from Unscrupulous
Always vajazzle your vajayjay in garnet red Swarovski crystals, then go to a champagne bar without wearing any underpants.
When a one night stand asks you to keep the lights off as he undresses check his scrotum for candied sprinkles.
If at first you don’t succeed in taking his entire anaconda, try and try again.
If you let a hunk finger you while in public, it’s best to orgasm under a cocktail table when no one is looking.
Prostitution isn’t illegal in France, but ejaculating in public on a balcony out over a crowd of tourists will indeed get you arrested.
When paying good money to import a butler from Russia, particularly one named Díma Revva, make sure he can cook something other than just Holodets for dinner.
Never buy a workout package of private home lessons from Gilad Oseary, a gorgeous Middle Eastern Pilates instructor. The last thing he’ll do with you is work out.
Avoid pinching pennies by using an expired moisturizer that you’ve stolen from your plastic surgeon’s office. The karma will cost you more than a good complexion.
Always pay for your own travel accommodations when going to the Cannes Film Festival. Any attempt to secure free tickets by blackmailing airline officials with photos of them wearing your corsets is bound to blow-up in your face.
If Mr. Kim Lee, your male nail technician, expects a bigger than average tip for his pedicure, he’d better be prepared to do a lot more than buff your toes. Especially when you’ve just attended a BDSM workshop with Madam Queen Dick Dupree and are ramped up for a fucking good time.
Spying out your office window at the people in the high-rise next to you with best friends Vive and Blake should only be done while drinking Bloody Mary’s and using binoculars.
Virgin Mormons make the best personal assistants. They are never hung over at work nor will they steal your Manolo Blahniks. But they may become naturally curious and ask to borrow your porn collection.
Having a reality TV star as a PR client can be annoying, especially when she thinks she can not only design handbags and make jewelry but also record a pop album.
Masturbating to NFL player fantasies is best done on an elliptical next to your desk while wearing Lululemon stretch pants.
Just because you own the high-rise that your company is in, doesn’t give you the liberty to smoke indoors.
When you’re sleeping alone waiting for his call, it’s alright to use your four Shih Tzus as loveable fur pillows.
Don’t look away while making love to Warner Truman. He wants your eyes meeting his and his hands on your heart.
Love may be unconditional, but if your parents drop you off at boarding school when you’re thirteen and never pick you back up, ever, it’s okay to tell them to go fuck themselves.
The love you get from your friends and co-workers may be special, but it’ll never compare to the love you get from the six-foot-five, anaconda-hung, hazel-eyed, close-to-trillionaire stud, you’ve nicknamed Big Daddy.
The third richest man in the world is capable of saying he loves you. He just has to jet around the globe and do it in style.
