Here are some of my favorite reader responses:

 Brilliantly written with just the right amount of hotness, sexiness, humor and romance.

Warner is my new hot billionaire book boyfriend for sure and Taddy is my new BFF. Thanks Avery.

Gear up ladies because Warner is here to grab you by the ovaries!! Resistance is futile.

Witty, sexy, ballsy, charming, dominant…all of these describe any one of the characters in this book and it made me love them even more.

Trust me ladies you will want to meet Warner and his “anaconda”!

So expect for laughing, Taddypedia research, porn alike, 8 pack private man but way too romantic but ain’t cheesy, frienships/family, a lot of Red.

This book, this book, this book! What’s not to love about this book! Unscrupulous was funny, witty, sexy, and HOT as Hell.

There were moments I was laughing so hard I thought I may have wet myself, and other that had me rushing for a cold shower.

Filled with super hot moments and sparkling dialogue the story draws the reader in grabs you and doesn’t let go.


After reading this incredible story, I definitely want to hang (and party) with these wonderful women and men!

An amazing love story about women who speak their mind and go after what they want.

 Avery Aster you have a new fan. What an entertaining read. I found myself laughing, crying & jumping for joy with & for these characters.

The first book was fantastic… This one is super amazing!! There should be a new word for how good it is.

Reader Question: Is adult film star Manuel Coq de la Grande in Unscrupulous real?


You’ve all asked if adult film star Manuel Coq de la Grande in Unscrupulous (The Manhatttanites #2) is real. Answer: NO! Not really. But…he was inspired by four time AVN Male Performer of the Year award winner…(drum roll)…Manuel Ferrara! Hello. He has the best love scenes ever. His girls always have REAL orgasms on camera. You will twerk your hips watching him. I’ve pasted some pics of Manuel below. I’ve also added some text that talks about it in Unscrupulous.

Excerpt: Chapter Eight, Dominatrix Queen-Dick Dupree, May 14, Times Square, New York, NY

*set-up: Taddy is talking to her virgin Mormon assistant Kiki about her love for adult films

“Ladies may not admit this, but they do.” She cracked open the Coke Zero on her desk, popped two white tablets in her mouth and swigged. Aah. Kiki is driving me loopy. Please, God, give me strength. Give me one flippin’ day off. Just one. That’s all I ask for. Didn’t you rest on Sunday?

“Such as?” Kiki sat back in her chair, making herself more comfortable.

“My love for porn as an example,” Taddy blurted it out without realizing her audience. It had been ages since she’d turned on her TV, but goodness, how she enjoyed a raunchy DILF video now and again.

Eyes wide, Kiki requested, “May I get personal with you for a minute?”

Taddy nodded. This better be good.

“I’ve never seen an X-rated video.”

“Get the Hail Mary outta here.”

“Pornography is prohibited by our church.”

“So…if you watch a dirty film, will a Mormon van pick your virgin butt up and haul you away to an LDS mission?

“No! Miss Brill. You’re funny.” Kiki laughed then lowered her voice. “What male porn stars do you watch?”

Without giving it a second thought, she answered, “Manuel Coq de la Grande, he’s beefy and goes at it. You will too when you see him.”

Kiki gripped her pen, jotting the porn star suggestion down.


“How does Mr. Coq de la Grande do it for you?”

“Keep in mind I’ve never even met Manuel let alone slept with him, but I have watched every movie he’s ever done.” Again, she reached for her Coke Zero. “Manuel has girth.” She took another sip and continued, “I assume Manuel is like this tin can here. I can’t get my hands all the way around, let alone have such width rammed in my mouth, shoved up my rear or screwing my privates.”

Kiki uncrossed her legs with a muffled gasp.

Taddy returned the tin can to the table. “Manuel’s sweet, yet rough in bed, and he always stares deep into the woman’s eyes while she comes.”

Her assistant fanned herself with her notebook. “I…see.”

“Manuel speaks French.” She laughed then added, “It’s good for women to fantasize—keeps the juices flowing.” For a nanosecond, she shut her eyes, envisioned Manuel grabbing her by her red hair—in a respectable way—and slapping her porcelain skin firmly on the cheeks and giving her a slight neck-grabbing choke. Some women considered striking the face open palmed and choking abusive and humiliating. On the contrary, Taddy knew better. A smack suited Manuel’s unique way of ensuring his Red paid attention. Most women, she imagined, when sleeping with Manuel would get lost in their own euphoric Candy Land with floating honey clouds passing them by.

Ignoring Kiki’s Chicken Little squabble, she tugged at her bra straps. She reached under her desk without notice and rubbed her hands over her tweed Chanel skirt. Massaging herself, she thought about Manuel—twisting her nipples—pounding her ass—banging her clit. Go, Red, go. God, screw one day off, I need a weekend. Please, Lord, give me a whole weekend.

Readers Share Twenty Five New Yorker Insights Learned from Unscrupulous


image created by Fab Fun & Tantalizing Reads


  • 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.

Avery Aster “Picks One” on Sex, Luxury, & Life in Manhattan…

*this interview originally appeared at Tonya’s Book Shelf 


Avery Aster, author of The Manhattanites series “Picks One” on Sex, Luxury, & Life in Manhattan…

We sat down with Avery Aster, author of the hilariously erotic series The Manhattanites from Ellora’s Cave, and played the “Pick One” game. Avery weighs in on…sex, luxury and New York’s social life.

Scream, Moan or be Silent

Sometimes I whistle making a humming noise…kidding. If my mouth isn’t gagged with a ball or tied shut with a strap I’m usually moaning, if not singing or speaking in tongue. Who doesn’t?

Uptown or Downtown?

I’m older than twenty-five, so I’m going to say uptown, but nothing higher than Eighty-Fifth Street then I get a nosebleed.

Belgian or Swiss Chocolate?

Teuscher Chocolates of Switzerland are quite simply the best effin’ chocolate on the planet, so as they say…you should only buy a Swiss made watch; you should only eat Swiss chocolates. But who am I fooling? I’ll eat American Hershey’s too. I’m a slut for chocolate. Are you sharing your candy with me today?

Trojan, Lifestyles or Durex Condoms?

Durex Extra Sensitive Condoms are über-thin and wonderful for heightened euphoria. Their Extra Sensitive Ribbed condom also can add more motion in the ocean.

Jets or Giants

Oh come on…The Giants. They have quarterback Eli Manning. He’s most adorable. As Taddy Brill, from Unscrupulous, would say, he’s a hunkadoris. And I just can’t get into that Jets green color, can you? It’s so…meh.

Vogue or Elle

Neither. I love Vanity Fair. It’s gossipy. If I wanna catch fashion I can go to a show or walk down the street. But getting the dish, I count on Graydon Carter at VF. His editors have been a huge inspiration for the Vive Farnworth character in my series. She owns Debauchery magazine and is getting her own love story in book four.

Leather or Lace

Leather. I get great arousal from the way it smells on me and others when it’s worn. Don’t you?

Eastside or West?

Manhattan’s East Side is home to Union Square, Gramercy, East Village, Upper East Side. It’s the only side! Plus, the west has too many tourists.

Moët & Chandon or Veuve Clicquot?

Hands down, Moët & Chandon and not just because it’s featured in Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites #2) and my lead heroine Taddy Brill’s favorite, but it tastes smoother. Veuve is wonderful too, but sometimes a bit dry for me and that big yellow sticker can be obnoxious. Just sayin’!

Commando, boxer or brief?

None of the above. Jock strap, please. I adore the way it frames and lifts a man’s ass, so perfect. (or not!)

LaGuardia or JFK International?

Both airports suck. They do. Newark Airport is cleaner and nicer but so effin’ far. If you’re flying along the east coast then book outta LGA. For trips to the west coast or abroad it’s always been JFK for me. But I’ll gladly fly outta Newark whenever possible. They have the Departures Spa in Terminal C for pedicures and facials. It makes the whole Jersey jaunt worth it.

Bergdorf’s or Barney’s New York

I’m a Bergdorf blonde through and through. I love David Hoey’s windows during Christmas and can get lost in that store. Dear credit department, if you’re reading this, can you please increase my charge limit? Thank you!

Uscrupulous (The Manhattanites #2)

By Avery Aster
ISBN# 9781419944932
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave :: Barnes & Nobles :: Ellora’s Cave :: Kobo :: Sony :: All Romance

Avery Aster pens erotic romance for Ellora’s Cave. As a resident of New York’s Upper East Side and a graduate from New York University, Avery gives readers an inside look at the city’s glitzy nightlife, socialite sexcapades and tall tales of the über-rich and ultra-famous. “I write about what I see in my metropolis that never sleeps–Manhattanites on the quest for a passionate thrill,” Avery says. “By and large, my characters are drop-dead gorgeous, ripped straight from the headlines and on the hunt for their next conquest.”

Undressed #1 (Lex & Massimo) launched The Manhattanites series, exploring people’s forbidden desires of lust and longing. Unscrupulous #2 (Taddy & Warner) is the highly anticipated prequel coming August 14, 2013. Also, stay tuned for the sequel with Unsaid #3 (Blake & Miguel) coming winter 2013.

The Manhattanites is an extended modern erotic romance series of full length juicy melodramas multilayered on love, friendship, scandal, and drama to the hilt. 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. Each novel may be read as a stand alone.
