Review: Yours Truly, Taddy by Avery Aster

Rating: ★★★1/2 stars
Date published: April 11th, 2014
Publisher: Avery Aster, Inc.
Synopsis: Jetting to Martinique for a modeling assignment with three of Europe’s hottest magazine photographers—Gustave, Fabian, and Leon—should’ve been easy, breezy beautiful. Never did I expect to look up and see a hole in the ceiling of our plane that was bigger in size than my Birkin bag.

Shit! We’re nose-diving toward Eden Island. I pictured how my New York Times obituary might read when I’m gone, “Taddy Brill, Manhattanite, dethroned descendant of the Austrian House of Brillford royalty, dies at age eighteen, penniless, unloved, and a virgin.” I swear this crap only happens to me. Suddenly, Leon pulls me with Fabian and Gustave. Adrenaline racing through me, our bodies clung as one. We prepared to…crash. 

The Undergrad Years is a New Adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships. 

Reader warning: Contains mature content intended for readers 17 and up.
What I Thought:

Boy was this book one crazy journey, literally for Taddy, her best friends, and three hot Frenchmen.  I read this book very quickly.  I was hooked from the first page.  I envied Taddy for being on her way to the Caribbean with her pals and then the next thing I knew the plane is coming apart and I was no longer jealous.

There were some interesting twists I might have seen coming if I was paying better attention, but they took me by surprise and I enjoyed them once I stopped mentally cursing and screaming.  Once again the gang got up to some shenanigans and most of them were enjoyable. I did feel for Taddy and the way some things went down for her.

Avery Aster has written another entertaining episode featuring one of the Manhattanites.  I expected a fabulous story and I got one that was but a little short. I wanted to know more about the Frenchmen and what happened after.  I know Avery's got stories planned for Blake and Vive but I'd like more of this one.

About the Author
New York Times, USA Today bestselling author Avery Aster pens The Manhattanites, a modern romance series of juicy melodramas multilayered on love, friendship, scandal, and drama to the hilt. 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–beautiful people on the quest for a passionate thrill,” Avery says. By and large, Avery’s characters are ripped straight from the headlines, speak their minds and always get what they want.
Undressed #1 (Lex & Massimo) launched The Manhattanites series. Unscrupulous #2 (Taddy & Warner) is the prequel. Also, stay tuned for the sequel with Unsaid #3 (Blake & Miguel) coming summer 2014.
The Manhattanites is for fans who miss TV shows like Sex & The City or watch Girls (HBO), Revenge (ABC), and The Bold & the Beautiful (CBS) . Avery’s characters are over the top. They have cray-cray fun, speak their minds and always get what they want. Each novel may be read as a stand alone.
