Brooke
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.

Devon
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.

 


    WOW! Looking around seeing if anyone can tell that I just was taken on one helluva ride. I wanted to play with M. Robinson and she just showed me whose boss.

    I will do a full honest disclosure. I never read VIP. I have it, I haven’t read it. I make this point because Tempting Bad is a spin off of VIP. I haven’t really #authorstalked M. Robinson either. Whoever is reading this…yes, YOU… Learn. From. My. Mistakes. Read all her books, her writing style is so fluid it grips you at just the right time then lets you go at the precise moment even when you want to punch the characters in the throat or you’re clutching your heart from the pain. The writing is very deliberate and calculating proving that M. Robinson is a smart writer and I am now a reader for life! I will be going back to read all her other books!!

    I loved this book and not because of the hot sex you have to expect from a story like this. I don’t love this book because everyone I know who is a book nerd like me loves M. Robinson. NO, I love Tempting Bad for the simplicity of what it is. This is a story of life, the dark side of consequences that many don’t want to admit can and do happen; a story that defines that perception really is in the eye of the beholder.  Tempting Bad takes you on a roller coaster of events that proves that fate will always deal its’ hand no matter what path you choose to take.

    Told among dual first person POV, we are brought into the world that’s born from VIP, and exclusive erotic illusion of wants, thru the eyes of Brooke. A spoiled brat who has the perfect life in every way until her world is shattered at a tender age. During the same time we are thrust into the darkness that encompasses Devon and his never ending pain in life. With six degrees of separation we read along as each character in Tempting Bad has their specific place and a connection with the next character, and the best part is when all these worlds collide and you see the awesome effect each one has on another. Going back to the hot sex, the scenes in this story are full of debauchery told with such clarity you can almost touch, smell and see what’s going on around you. Saying all this, the best feeling for me, is the way Devon and Brooke are characterized. Having to continue with life when dealt a crappy hand and finding their way to a place that is truly content, even when they try their hardest to not care and sabotage themselves at every turn, fate comes and puts them where they need to be.

    M. Robinson, for me, has truly told a good story and at times I wanted to scream at her because I thought I was going to be taken down a road I didn’t want to go down, truth be told I would’ve loved every which way this story could’ve been told, so my point is moot but still. LOL  But thankfully we got back on the same page :-) and my world went back to good. 

   So all in all what I am trying to say in this long winded review is that I would recommend Tempting Bad to everyone! I Loved it, can wait for more and I know you will to!


** I was given an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review and experience. 


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!
