Review - UNCONVENTIONAL by Avery Aster

Unconventional (The Manhattanites #4)

From the NYT Bestselling author of The Manhattanites series and for fans of such films as Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Wild Things comes a ménage romance posing the question; can two men share the same woman forever?

They are the best of friends and the greatest of lovers. Two men and one woman, searching for fortune and fame, bound together by an eroticism their money and power can’t buy them. Luigi, the romantic alpha hunk. Rocco, the exotic bisexual. Jemma, the insatiable beauty who possesses them both.

From their first rendezvous in Milan, the three set out on a wicked course, jet-setting from the kinky underground sex clubs of Berlin, to the lavish palaces of Moscow, to New York’s high society in pursuit of pleasure. They have only each other to care for. That is…until a baby comes along and changes their destiny. But which of them is the father? And will they continue their poly relationship or give in to convention?

3.5 of 4 Stars

Jemma is her own special kind of lady but when it seems like the chips are falling for her she kind of just gets angry and gives up. It could be as a result of her past and her fight with Cancer has left her with little fight left. So when her friends and lovers decide to take things in their own hands, I was surprised that she took to it so well. I think it was a pretty big reality slap for her.

Luigi and Rocco have their own special relationship but they share a deep love for Jemma. Instead of being completely sidelined when Jemma doesn't agree on deeper commitment, they decide to do everything they can to help her see things from their perspective.

Although, I enjoyed the fun witty humor of this book, the special bond that the characters have, I just wasn't ready for it to be over. I felt like there was so much more to be told. I am glad that things worked out they way they did for Luigi, Jemma and Rocco. I guess I am more suited to a full book vs a novella, I wanted more....

Wonder what will happen next with The Manhattanites series? I will be watching and waiting...
