✿ Tempting Bad ✿ M. Robinson ✿ Review ✿


Ive 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 didnt 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 doesnt work and God doesnt listen.
And I learned how to be a man
All at the receiving end of my fathers fists, my mothers tears, and my sisters screams.
You cant run away from your past
It will always find you, especially when youre asleep.

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

ARC received for an honest review

Oh my gosh, M. Robinson has done it again!

I have loved her work from the minute I picked up VIP, and her work just keeps on getting better and better.

If you have read the the VIP series (which you don't need to have done to read Tempting Bad) you have already met Devon and Brooke.

This is not a sweet, hearts and flowers romance.  It is gritty, it is dark, it is emotional.  And I LOVE it!

Devon is Ysabelle from VIP's best male friend, and Brooke is her best friend from working at VIP.

Now we need to ask ourselves - "Can two broken people really heal each other?"

From the minute we met Brooke in VIP,  I was intrigued.  Who was this woman?  What was her story?  What drover her to become a VIP.

And woah!  What a story hers is!  Her happy life is shattered when she is 16, and it sets her on the road to VIP.  16 is when she turns her back on love and leads her to be the woman she is today.

She is such a strong woman.  She knows what she wants, when she wants it, and no one, and I mean no one is going to tell her what to do or get her to change.  

"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 more.  Just because I could."

Oh Devon.  This man has to have the biggest, most open heart of any man.  He put his life on hold as a teen, and now it is time for him to finally live and love for himself.

Oh boy, when their worlds collide, just hang on for the ride as it is an 

Brooke and Devon are just two beautiful, broken souls.  I just wanted to give them both a big hug, tell them that things are going to get better, they just have to get better.  They see each other - really see each other like no one has ever done before.

Can two people so broken ever feel whole again?

"What happens if you were half a person to begin with?  I knew the answer.  Devon.  He completed me.  We were both halvesw, who made each other whole.  I hated him... That's a lie.  I hated myself."

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading Tempting Bad.  Could they do it?  Could they make it and be each other's everything.  I sooooo wanted them to open up to each other, to trust each other - hard when they have not been able to trust those closest to them in their lives.  They deserve love, they deserve happiness. I want it for them damn it!

Do they get it?  Nope, for that you are going to have to read for yourself.

I loved that we got a little more of Ysabelle and Sebastian from VIP in this book. 

M Robinson knows how to write a hot, steamy book, but it is more than that.  There is so much emotion in her stories, I couldn't help but shed a tear or two for our lovelies.

Every book I read of hers just gets better and better, and I can't wait to see what she has for us next.
