I’ve come from a privileged life and an even more privileged upbringing. My parents taught me right from wrong and everything in between… except I wanted the gray area. I wanted to live life on the edge with the possibility of falling over. I didn’t care about the consequences because I had no heart…
I left that on the floor of my parents’ bedroom door, shattered.
And never went back to pick up the pieces.

Family first.
I learned the meaning of the word hate.
I learned that life is a battlefield and I stood frontline.
I learned that praying doesn’t work and God doesn’t listen.
And I learned how to be a man…
All at the receiving end of my father’s fists, my mother’s tears, and my sisters screams.
You can’t run away from your past…
It will always find you, especially when you’re asleep.

Warning: Book contains adult situations.
Sex/language. Mature readers only.

I was there, but I wasn’t.
I danced around in a sea of emptiness and longing, it moved around me easily, carelessly, harshly.
It was all and it was nothing.
It made me full and it made me empty.
It pleased me and it dismayed me.
I didn’t care. I was there to do a job. To be a VIP. I played my part beautifully, just as I always did. Letting myself get taken away on empty promises of nothing, but somehow seemed like everything. 


“It’s like the world stops spinning for just a few seconds and then night takes over. Once the sunrise appears, you have a whole new start to try again. A whole new day to make changes and decisions that could not only affect you, but everyone around you.”

I knew from the moment I started reading this book I would be hooked. I wasn’t wrong, I was clutched in the embraces of the pages and could not for the life of me break free. And I didn’t want to. Not even when it was over…

“For the first time in my life, I wanted to do something for me. I wanted this chance to be who I truly believed I was. I was made for a life of pleasure. I was made for sex. I was made to be a goddamn…VIP.”

Brooke, I think, was my favorite character in this series…and her story along with Devon’s is one I have wanted to devour since reading the VIP Series.  M. Robinson did not disappoint in the least.  Catching another perspective of what was happening in the story was fabulous and melded perfectly with what I’ve already read.

I loved the serendipitous moments, how the characters flowed, not just with each other but individually.  They are complex and incredibly simple all at the same time. I couldn’t get enough!

“I was the girl your parents warned you about. The one they told you not to trust. The one to stay away from. The one that could break your heart, and go back for me. Just because I could.”

If you haven’t picked up the VIP Series by M. Robinson, I strongly suggest you do. There are twists and turns, hot and steamy scenes that make you want to grab your SO and try them yourself, and at the end you are left with exactly what you had hoped for. I loved every second of this book and the series as a whole, I look forward to more…maybe a little more on Madam, excuse me, Lilith.  *smile*

**5 Define Bad, Stars**

M. Robinson loves to read. She favors anything that has angst, romance, triangles, cheating, love, and of course sex!
