Undressed by Avery Aster


I know I am probably telling my age here but I used to love the television shows
Dynasty and Dallas and for me reading UNDRESSED had me thinking that if those 
shows were produced today (I know there is a new Dallas but it isnt the same) it
would be a lot like UNDRESSED. 

Lex Easton needs the material for her Fashion week and the fate of that week lies in 
the hands of Prince Tittoni. Prince Tittoni is the owner of Girasoli Fabrics and 
is withholding the fabric. Lex decides to confront the prince at his vacation home
to demand that he release the fabrics she needs but she doesn't factor in that
the pictures that she has seen of him do not do him any justice. He is much hotter in 

Prince Massimo Tittoni has no intention of letting Lex have his fabric but when he finds out Lexis a she not a he and that he very much wants her in his bed. 

UNDRESSD is simply hot. Hot seems almost like a wimpy word for the sizzling attraction 
between Lex and Massimo. Not to mention it gives readers a glimpse into the exciting
fashion world.  There also are some menage scenes between secondary characters which 
made me love UNDRESSED even more. Luckily for me this is the first in The Manhattanites 
series. I personally cannot wait for the next installment. With books like UNDRESSED who
needs to watch tv?
