♥ 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.

♥ 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.

♥ 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?

5- NOT A Love Story -Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

how can something that started off so wrong become something that is so right? It can't. It's already tainted. Did I deserve a happily ever after?

~Ysabelle Telle left VIP and her life in Miami behind in an attempt to find herself. With Sebastian back in her life, living together, owning the bar she's always dreamed of, she has everything she's always wanted.... so why does she feel more lost now than she did before she left? VIP made her the woman she is today, The Madam is the closest thing to a mother she has ever had, but the secrets that lay behind the walls of The Cathouse could very well destroy and change everything she ever thought she knew. Will love be enough to save her, or is she far too damaged to give Sebastian what he wants?

~Sebastian Vanwell thought he had it all. His soul-mate is back in his arms with plans to move forward with their lives, she has escaped the clutches of VIP and is finally just his. Or so he thought. For every step forward they take three steps back as she keeps him at arms length, strangled by the demons of her past. He is starting to think that maybe love might not be enough. When he least expects it, their past collides with their present leaving him to wonder if he ever really had Ysa at all, or will she always belong to VIP.

I don't know who I am anymore! I don't know if I ever did! Why do you want to be with me? I'm so fucked up!”
“I know who you are. You're mine! And I'm yours. I couldn't leave you alone because I can't fucking breathe without you. You're my air, you're my life, you're my everything.”

This series has been a train wreck right from the beginning and this book was no different. There is no shortage of drama where these two are concerned, but considering how they started, what do you expect? Ysa struggled so much with her past it was impossible not to feel it. Was she stubborn and a little pigheaded? Sure. But honestly, how can you go through what she has gone through and not be just a tad bit cautious. Besides, Sebastian has let her down before so it's only natural that he would have to earn her trust back. Doesn't change the fact that SHE screws up this time around. There will be tears, there will be screaming, and this is definitely a ton of crazy hott sex. Sebastian really cranked the heat up a notch. Not that the sex wasn't hott in the first book, but his possessiveness is just tuned up a bit this time and it has him fucking like a man possessed. Yeah-HOTT. Brooke is funny as ever, Devon... I'm not really sure how I feel about him. On the one hand, he has always been there for Ysa-on the other, I didn't really love the part he plays at times. Julia is an ever present part of their lives, but she is the mother of Seb's son so there really is no avoiding it. What killed me was how insecure she made Ysa feel without even trying. She was another one of those characters that I'm still unsure of. She almost seems TOO perfect. I know that may sound ridiculous but, the way she handles her new situation with her Sebby was damn near angelic. And she actually tries to befriend Ysa. Now I love Ysa, but all things considered, you would expect Julia to be the last person to be nice to her let alone try to help her out. I really don't think I could be so cool about it. And BONUS – we get a little more of Micah and... WOW. That man just oozes sex, even if he's a little bit sleazy. But the icing on the cake that was this book was The Madam. I won't say why, but I will say that I loved the way her story played out. This series just got more raw by the book, it pulls you in and sucks you dry but is impossible to walk away from. These characters have burned themselves into my brain and I'm having a hard time letting them go. As debuts go, M. Robinson knocked it outta the park with this trilogy-the story was unique, the characters were engaging, it's not always pretty but everything that happens has a purpose. She has definitely earned her spot on my One-Click-Addiction List and I cannot wait to see what she brings us in the future.

Our love story is far from perfect...
But it's ours.

And I wouldn't trade it for the world.
