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.
***A review copy was provided in exchange for a fair and honest review***
This book is the 2nd in The Manhattanites series by I didn't read the first. It wasn't necessary to the story and in fact, after I finished reading Unscrupulous, I read the Synopsis for Undressed and it seems to take place after this one so you're good. :)
Unscrupulous is about a driven career woman, who is determined to make it on her own. Taddy Brill is a dirty dirty woman and I loved her for it. She likes shopping, drinking, sex and making sweet morman girls uncomfortable.
Warner Truman is the 3rd richest man in the world and when he's approached by Taddy in bar, he capitalizes on the fact that she doesn't seem to know who he is. It's easy to see that they are instantly hot for each other and it makes for one of the hottest scenes I've read. Until they head home to Warner's home where his ex fiance is there. She effectively scares Taddy off and so ends their hot affair.
Taddy decides that her little morman assistant Kiki needs to get laid, so she sends her off to France to meet up with her online boyfriend. But when that results Kiki getting arrested, Taddy hops on a plane to bail her out only to run back into Warner. This time Warner is determined not to let Taddy get away but Taddy has a wall built up that rivals The Great Wall of China. Can two Alpha arrogant people make a relationship work?
