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. 

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

Tammy’s 5 BARE NAKED STARS ***** Review

I never thought I would be capable of falling in love with you, and now I don’t think I’m capable of falling out of love with you.

Tempting Bad had me hooked me from Prologue till the Epilogue.   M. Robinson takes you on a journey of love, lust, heartbreak, forgiveness, and OMG the SEX.  Damn this is one spicy HOT story.
At the beginning of the book Brooke is sixteen.  She has the perfect life.  She has an incredible best friend, privileged life, and her parents love for each other is unlike any other couple.  She feels that she has everything and can’t wait to graduate and go away to college.
One night her entire world comes crashing down around her.  Everything she thought was true was a lie.  She can’t breathe and she falls to the ground outside her parents’ door and her life is never the same again. 
With the news she found out she was no longer an innocent sixteen year old.  Her life had changed in ways it would never be the same.  Only one place she could turn to --VIP

I was made for a life of pleasure.
I was made for sex
I was made to be a goddamn..
How can you not love Devon?  He was the boy that had been broken from an early age.  His home life most never would have survived it.  But not only did he survive it and he took it upon himself to protect everyone and become an adult when he was only a child.  He was sexy as fuck with a heart of gold.  Even though he has lived this awful life he still loved with his entire heart.

We made men fall in love with us, not because we wanted to. But because we could. I was the illusion. I was the dream. It was a game. A game I wanted to play

From the first moment they met there was an explosion between them.  They couldn’t deny the attraction.  Even though Brooke was honest from the start.  She was a VIP and that was her home now.  She wasn’t going change that. But how could she be involved with Devon?

Devon was love… his kindness, his smile, his laugh, his words, his caresses, his control… all of it.

But she couldn’t deny that she loved every moment she spent with Devon.  But she knew it wasn’t right or fair to him.  But he made her feel things she had never felt before.  So she kept up the game.

The different shades of her, I LOVED her as Brooke, I LOVED her as Bambi, I LOVED her as VIP

Devon always called her his Bambi.  That was who she was with him.  She wasn’t the same girl as when she was VIP or anyone that knew her before as Brooke.  With each passing day he fell more and more for her.  He couldn’t deny that he was falling hard and fast for a no win situation. 

In that moment, I realized why she was a VIP. It’s because she didn’t have to hide anymore. She was free from the secrets that she held so deeply in her heart. And it only made me want to know her more.
I wanted all of her.

Brooke took Devon on a wild ride showing him what she was like as a VIP.  It was an eye opening experience but it really showed him all of her.  She was unmasked and open for him to see into the parts she had hidden away from everyone.

I wouldn't come to understand until several years later...VIP. It wouldn't just change her life. It would change mine as well."

In a strange turn of events.  Devon learned so much about himself and his recovery thru VIP.  It really opened up his heart and mind to things he had buried deep in his soul.

"Everyone has a story to tell, and even though every story starts with "Once Upon A Time," it's the beginning, middle and ending that make every story different."

Boy did they have a story to tell.  There are so many twists, turns, unexpected events, and heartbreak that leave you on the edge of your seats.  You can’t help but hope they can make it work and find true love.  But can two totally broken souls find love together?
Tempting Bad gripped me from the start and I couldn’t put it down.  I had to know what was going happen next.  Just truly an amazing story..  From Prologue to Epilogue I truly was captivated and loved it all. 
Tempting Bad is a spin off from the VIP series but it can be read as a standalone. 
M.Robinson  is truly a remarkable author.  She lights a fire in the reader and makes you burn for more. You can’t get enough.   She touched me through her words in many ways.  I’ll definitely be reading many more of her books. 


Tara's 5 Bare Naked Stars ***** Review 

Tempting Bad By M. Robinson.

 “No one knew what happened when you were alone with your thoughts. Everyone had fears and things that terrified them, and I couldn’t escape mine, especially when I was asleep.”

Where do I even start?? I’m still reeling from this book! It assaulted every emotion in my being! I was happy, sad, scared, hurt, seduced...WOW!! Just wow!!! M. Robinson takes us into a world where love isn’t always the best thing to feel or to experience.

“A part of her had to know that this would only provoke me more. I wanted what I couldn’t have and the chase made it all the more fun.” 

Brooke and Devon, two tortured souls, live seperately, but they both struggle with the same demons. The urge to be loved, but the fear of getting hurt. I cannot tell you enough how much this book moved me. The characters in this book meshed so well together, so did the story line. Even with the amount of time that passes in Tempting Bad, there was never a moment where I was confused or had to look back. The way that M. Robinson writes, you are literally in the book, experiencing everything that the characters feel and do.

“I was the one still living in the past. Unable to forgive myself for the sins I believed I had committed. I wasn’t the villain in that scenario; I was the hero.” 

The great thing about Tempting Bad, is it can be read as a stand alone, or as part of the series!! I would read another on of M. Robinson’s books in a heartbeat, and probably not be able to put it down...just like this one!! Two days people! I read Tempting Bad in two days! Enjoy!
