Yes, it was a perfect mix of funny and sexy.

Which, in my opinion, is something that doesn't come around often while reading erotica. So that's already one of the main reasons why enjoyed reading this story so much.

If you're going to read this book, I would suggest that you not read it in a train full of people, or any other public place for that matter.

This book is about Prince Massimo Tittoni.

Here is what Massimo looks like (at least in my head, anyways):

From the very beginning of this book I was trying my level best to connect with the two leads and their annoying thoughts.
And as for the side characters ? Please,they hardly made it into the story-line...and in all the scenarios they did manage to show up ? They did the only thing the lead characters seemed successful in doing too,thoroughly annoying me.

When I started this book, I didn't expect to laugh so much. This is an erotica, so of course there was some sex scenes (which were quite hot!). But it wasn't overloaded with sex, just a lot of talk about sex and crude language. But it was also very funny, well to me anyways.

***I received a complimentary ARC of this book from the publisher, through, in exchange for honest feedback.***

Although this book isn't the first in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone novel. This is the first book that I've read in this series, or by this author. I didn't feel like I was missing anything critical to the story, despite having not read the earlier books. I'm sure I would have had more background information about Lex's friends and family, but I don't f

This Book Was Just Pure Sexy Fun!!!

First we've got Lex Easton.. Lex runs her own fashion empire.. she's gorgeous, driven.. and hasn't been laid in far to long...she's got a vibrator named Masi that takes care of her needs and a group of besties that are there for her in a pinch---they are all about fashion, champagne, and liven large. Lex seems to be the most grounded of the group...She built her empire from the ground up. It's her's her life

Then we've got Prince Massimo...
If you feel like a hot Italian alpha hero that's what you want, you'll get it in this steamy book. But remember, do not take it too seriously. This is erotica in the style of Prince and fashion designer, glam and chic, and lack of modesty. A lot of fun.

I found Undressed to be a very sexy and saucy look into the world of fashion. The heroine, Lex can be a bitch when she needs to be and I was worried for a bit that she was never going to soften, but she did. Massimo, our hero is a prince and fabric exporter. He's known for being a playboy, but he's greatly misunderstood. I found him to be romantic to the bone. Chivalrous and dignified, qualities that sometimes caused him to take the wrong action when it came to love.

First off, I will say that this book was a real surprise for me. This was marketed as erotic romance, and while it is indeed graphic -- with a token menage a trois thrown in for good measure -- there are actually fewer sex scenes in this book compared to your standard erotic novel.

The second thing that was a surprise to me was the humor. It's brash, in-your-face and yes, often crude brand of humor, which not everyone might appreciate. If you're the type to get offended by this type of humor, th

Masi and Lex's story was a dirty, kinky kind of way! Honestly, going in to this book I figured it was going to be mostly sex and not a lot of story. But really it was the opposite...more story then I expected and less sex then I was hoping for.

That's not to say that the sex that was there wasn't hot, because it was. And at one point, when Masi was so bold as to add a little something extra in to "spice" things up.....if you've read this then you'll know wh

Undressed is hilarious, Sexy hot read. This story Undressed By Avery Aster, reminded me of Alice Clayton. If you are a Alice Clayton fan I believe you will really enjoy this book.

The main characters Lex and Massi had instant chemistry and I loved their internal banter. There are many secondary characters in this book and they brought their own hilarious one liners. I laughed so hard, it made my stomach hurt. I also love all the fashion references in this book. It had a Sex In The City vibe to i

Holy Sh!t, brace yourself people, this book takes erotica to a whole new level of lewd, crude and totally over the top, giggle until you wanna pee your pants smut.

Avery Aster certainly has imagination and boy is it vivid, and I literally lost count of the amount of WTF moments there are in this story.

Lex certainly isn't scared to speak her mind, and I found Massimo's internal dialogue at times LOL funny. I read the better part of this book curled up in my local coffee shop, and I can

If I recall correctly this is my first time reading anything by Avery Aster. While I liked her choice of a hero, Massimo is a great Italian man, I wasn't sold on her choice of heroine. The reason this book gets 3.5 soft and bored stars is because I just could not connect with Lex (Alexandra) no matter how hard I tried. Since she's from my area it shouldn't have been hard but she was just too much bull shit and that's coming from a ridiculously blunt and in-your-face extrovert bred in the NYC are ...more

Avery Aster delivers exactly what she promises... a hot,sexual, international romp focusing on a band of characters covering the Fashion Industry. She smartly presents short bios for her cast and even shares that her intent is to let you have that "sex in the city" experience first hand.

We start in NYC, travel to a Principality to tangle with said sexy robust Prince, spend time in Milan and end up back where we started in New York for Fashion Week.

Ultimately, I enjoyed it. Started off slow, ended up a bit smutty and pretty funny, my main issue was my inability to get into Lex and Masi’s romance. It was sexy and crude, but emotionally, I just didn’t connect with them.. When the story needs a glossary at the beginning and it's not an urban fantasy, I felt like I needed to start at the beginning to get to know all the characters and I wish I had read the first book in the series before this one. That said, I thought there was plenty of smutt

I’m all over the shop with my review for this book. It made me laugh out loud. It placed a smile on my face which stayed there for a damn long time.


It did have its drawbacks.

There were so many pages that I loved in this book, but the sex unfortunately pulled me out of my enjoyment. I hope I can do my best to explain my point of view.

Undressed is an extremely fast paced and sexy read, though I don’t think it’s everyone’s cuppa tea. Those who don’t find the fashion industry, well endowed Italian princes proven to induce “squirting” or an over the top happily ever after should probably steer clear.

Let’s start with Lex. She’s by far my favorite character and I loved her and her snarky group of friends. She’s made a name for herself in the fashion world, in spite of a difficult upbringing in the public eye,

This is a lite read with humor, sexual tension, erotica and a little angst. And my favorites: NO CLIFFHANGER AND A GREAT HEA!!!

You are my home, bella. I am lost without you. He couldn’t speak. There were no words to recoil the loss consuming him. Massimo brought his hands up to her face. Kissing her one last time. He had to for his sanity. And he did with great passion, knowing he’d hurt her face when she kissed him back. But she did. He heard the cry in her throat as their tongues danced. Warm tears touched his palms as they continued to kiss. His fingertips were wet with sadness. He kept on kissing her. Unable to stop, he needed ten more seconds. Ti amo, I love you. Please don’t leave. I’ve waited my whole life for you. When he pulled his face back, she cried, and he realized he did also.”
