VIP Synopsis: 

VIP: The beginning: A point in time or space where something starts.

32-year-old Sebastian Vanwell, a very successful yacht broker, always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious yacht. His only addiction was being on the water. He loved it, he thrived on it, and he needed it in his life. After a very stable, loving childhood with a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life: the one person who he knew would always be there. Julia was his rock, and he loved her more than life itself. 

Sebastian kept his addiction to the water under control, wanting to keep his time with his wife and son his number one obsession. That was, until he saw her.

Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn't control no matter how hard he tried. Coming from worlds apart beautiful, dark, complicated Ysabelle didn't have the rich, protected background that Sebastian had. She had lived a life of hell, growing up in poverty and horrific living conditions with a drug-addict mother who never cared. Ysabelle now lived for one person, and one person only: herself. She was pure perfection. Her beauty, along with a flawless body, had men lined up and driveling over her- ensuring her success as a VIP.

There are too many words that describe the effects when two diverse worlds like theirs collide. They both have too much to lose to get caught in the forceful pull, which could destroy them both.

Warning sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.


✰ Review 

I have mixed feelings about this book. The beginning really dragged on and I felt like I was reading two stories in one. I was so confused and kept wondering how and when these two characters, Sebastian and Ysabelle, were intertwined with each other. It didn’t quite pick up and all start to fall in place until 60% in. That’s when all the juicy stuff comes into play.

I liked the concept of the story and the author’s ability to create a vivid picture in your mind by the way she delivered it. The characters were well written and even though most of the time I wanted to slap Sebastian in the face for being such a stupid fuck face, I can’t deny that he was sexy.


It’s kind of hard to review this one without giving away some of the key factors.   Overall, the story line was definitely unique and has some great potential.

The Madam Synopsis:

Some people need love…

I need sex, money, control, and power.

Anyone could have those four things, but only one could have VIP. Becoming Madam was never a choice for me, it was a mandated order from the most powerful woman I knew- my mother. I was born to fill her shoes, never to make mistakes, or to show weakness.

You are the product of your environment. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree; you learn from what you see, not from what you're told. Nature vs. Nurture. I learned from it all; what I saw, what I didn't see, what I was told, and from reading between the lines.

I was raised with the belief that the world spun ONLY because of me. I held power as far back as I can remember, saw things no one ever talks about, and witnessed illegal acts of sex, drugs, and money by the time I was eighteen.

You saw a glimpse of me in VIP, now see it from the beginning. Enter my world where anything goes; no judgments, no remorse, no guilt. You play by my rules, or you don’t play at all. There are no limits to what I can do, or to what I can show you…I will ensure my legacy by any means necessary.

My name is Lilith Veronica Stone, and I am The Madam. 


✰ Review 

Now this story was one that I could not put down. We met The Madam in VIP and you already know this lady does not take any shit. I love how M. Robinson wrote her character. The Madam was just so eloquent, sexy, and sultry and she knew what she wanted.

The sex scenes are definitely HOTT as hell and the author did an amazing job conveying the emotions in this book. I knew Lilith was going to be like solving a puzzle. She was such a mystery in VIP that I was left with so many questions, Where the hell did she come from? How the hell did she know so much about Ysabelle? How did she end up being The Madam?, all these things floated in my mind and now I’m just like whoa!


Completely not what I was expecting but so fucking good. The ruthless bitch factor definitely worked on Lilith and I thought her story was great, very well written and beautifully delivered.

MVP Synopsis:

Ysabelle

I love you.

Three words that can make or break you.

I thought I needed to find myself. I thought I wasn’t happy. I thought I needed more out of life.

I didn’t.

I’m more lost now than I was when I left. I have no answers, just endless amounts of questions. It was only a matter of time until the truth came to light. I never imagined it would change my entire life and everything I thought to be true.

It was all a game.

Except I wasn’t a player.

I was a pawn.

Sebastian

The end.

Two words that have several meanings. I never thought I’d lose her. But did I ever really have her…
Or did VIP?

Can love conquer all?


✰ Review 

Ysa and Sebastian’s story continues and I still have mixed feelings. However, I will say that even though there were certain aspects of the story that had me rolling my eyes quite a bit and annoyed me; this story was filled with so much more emotion than the first book. And I love a book that makes you feel what the characters are going through and M. Robinson definitely did that in this book.

There was so much going on in this story that it kept my eyes glued to the pages and my ass firmly planted on my couch until the very end. My heart was racing and at times my blood was boiling and my iPad made it through without any scratches, dents or shattered pieces.


A great read that had me consumed from beginning to end and will definitely have you sitting on the edge of your seat. I’ll be looking forward to reading more from M. Robinson.
