Book Review: Tempting Bad by M. Robinson
Publication Date: March 23, 2015
Rating: 5 Stars
****Tempting BAD is a VIP spin off. It can also be read as a standalone.****
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.
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 have read every book by M Robinson but this was my absolute favorite by far. I literally read this book in one day. This book left me speechless and shocked so many times. To say I am emotionally drained is an understatement but in a good way.
This book is told through both characters POVs. We get a glimpse of Brooke and Devon throughout the VIP series. I was very intrigued to find out there story and see how much it connected. So when the book starts we get a background story of Brooke and Devon. Brooke came from a good family and loved her parents but one night completely changed everything. Devon has literally fought for his mom and sisters since he was a child. I felt so bad for him for what he went through. Both Brooke and Devon are broken but together they heal each other. It wasn’t an easy road at all and these two went through hell and back to get there.
There were times in this book I wanted to hold Brooke and Devon but there were also times I wanted to slap both of them a few times. I know I got mad at Brooke quite a few times but I did actually understand why she made the choices she made. Brooke isn’t the only one who made me mad, Devon also pissed me off a few times. Sometimes things in life aren’t easy especially love but somehow Brooke and Devon didn’t give up even though there were times that I was biting my nails.
This book is definitely an emotional roller coaster ride that will make you happy, sad, pissed off, scream at your kindle a few times, jump up and down, and possibly throw your kindle across the room. It wasn’t easy ride at all but it was a ride that was very worth it. Brooke and Devon have stolen my heart completely. I look forward to more by M Robinson she has a way of ripping out your heart just to put it back together in the end.
