Undressed (The Manhattanites #1) by Avery Aster
Book 1 in The Manhattanites series. Milan’s notorious playboy, Prince 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 has already endured her fair share of hard knocks. She’ll 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 make her clothing line an international success—even sleep with her rival. Lex’s Louboutins are dug in deep to win this war. All’s fair in love and fashion!
I really enjoyed the book overall. However, I did feel like the love/relationship was too rushed. They "fell in love" too quickly for my taste. Although, that didn't make it any less believable. I couldn't really relate to the characters personally, as I'm not very knowledgeable in the fashion business. The New York/Manhattan way of life is foreign to me, but it was really fun getting a glimpse into the lives there! My favorite part of the book was the ending which left me wanting more! Here's hoping for a continuation of Masi & Lex's story!!I WOULD recommend this book! If you enjoy a quick paced love story, fashion, and steamy love scenes, this book is for you!!!
