When the sun disappeared, the world was cast in shadows, hiding the evil that lay in wait. When it was dark, I hunted. The shadows caressed my body as I did things I could never do in the light of day. Eighteen-year-old Bree Bowen has spent her entire life training and working as one of her father’s assassins. Fear has kept her and her best friend, Wes, under her father’s thumb—until now. When Wes takes matters into his own hands, securing Bree a new identity and a plane ticket to America, he gives her the one chance she’s been desperately seeking. Learning to live a new life isn’t easy. Add in her new roommate, Reid, who just happens to be a stripper, and things start to get a little crazy. Falling for a man has never been part of her plan, but she can’t seem to stay away from Reid. When Bree’s past comes crashing back into her life, secrets that she’s fought to keep hidden are revealed, and she’s forced to choose between Reid and the life she could have with him, or Wes, the one man who has always loved her unconditionally. Regardless of her choice, she must learn the consequences of sin. This book will be a standalone.


Bree is born into a family that definitely isn't the Cleavers. The exact opposite, in fact, of a warm and loving mother and father combo. After training in London with her best friend, and basically soulmate, Wes, to become a part of the "family business", Bree discovers that the life she has been groomed for is not the one she wants but just leaving is not easy. She basically escapes without Wes and she ends up with a new life and a new chance at a future in Texas. She meets Reid, who becomes her roommate and she finds herself feeling both attraction and guilt because of her lingering feelings for Wes. Soon, her life in London crashes into her life in Dallas and things get very interesting.

This is not a book anything like any K.A Robinson book other than the unexpected tense scenes and drama which a lot of her books have- the darkness and criminal background of the characters in this one are new for me from an author known for your HEA New Adult and YA reads. She definitely showed her range and talent as an author with COS and I really enjoyed reading the struggle, strength and fight in Bree- both strong and weak, real and somewhat unreal at the same time, and her feelings for two men give this story twists and turns that will most definitely keep you reading this all the way through. Five stars from me, I have yet to read a K.A Robinson book I did not love. ~ Kellie

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.


**** Caution contains adult language, sex, and drug use --- for mature readers only ****
If you are completely against reading about infidelity, this book is not for you, but you would be missing out on a great story. I had so many emotions while reading this story. The story follows the lives of two people Ysabelle Telle and Sebastian Vanwell. It totally screwed with my mind and I loved it. I didn’t know if I should hate the main characters, love them, or feel sorry for them? This book was emotional, it starts off a little slow with the childhood stories of the two main characters, but you need to understand how they got to where they are. The story picks up the pace about a third of the way in and if you are fan of passionate, steamy, sometimes dirty sex scenes, you will not be disappointed.
Ysabelle‘s childhood is very sad, she has a horrible mother that is a prostitute. Most nights of her childhood she goes to bed hungry and alone. When she is just 12 years old she has a horrible experience with one of her mother’s johns. This is when she realizes she needs to fend for herself and to stop wishing for love from her mother. Ysabelle starts using her body to get things she needs (food, clothes, money) from the boys at school, but she is always in control of the situation. At 16 she runs away from her mother and her horrible life to Miami, where she ends up getting a job in a bar working for a man names Devon. Ysabelle starts making a decent life for herself and everything is going good, but she feels like something is missing. While working at the bar she meets Madam, who is the owner of the business VIP. Madam persuades Ysabelle to become a VIP escort.
Sebastian Vanwell is an only child of wealthy couple; he has a very good childhood. His best friend is Julia, the daughter of family friends that he has known from the day she was born. The two of them are inseparable and completely love each other. When he is 12 and Julia is 10, Julia’s parents decide to adopt another child. When Sebastian sees Olivia for the first time, he knows things will never be the same. Olivia, Julia, and Sebastian are the Three Musketeers, but Sebastian knows that his relationship with Olivia is different from his and Julia’s; he is in love with her and her with him. The two of them keep their true feelings from Julia and try to keep to themselves through the years. Until one night all their lives change.  
Years later, Sebastian meets Ysabelle at an event on one his client’s yacht.  He is very taken aback by her appearance and she has a strange pull to him as well. Through the twists and turns, their lives intertwine. She is the addiction he cannot get out of his mind, body, and soul. She has never believed in love, but she starts to have feelings for him. This isn’t your normal love story; it is raw, gritty, and emotional.
4 out of 5 stars ****

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. 

5 Stars

The Madam did not disappoint. I was very pleasantly surprised with the Madam’s story. I am usually not a lover of “back stories” or flash backs but M Robinson wrote the story of Madam perfectly. I was completely absorbed and entertained throughout the whole book and couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what made this woman “tick”.

Lilith Stone, the one and only Madam from book one of the VIP Series was born to become a VIP. Her mother groomed her from a very young age to become the charming, cold, calculating Madam we loved to hate in VIP. M Robinson had me craving more of Lilith’s story, I needed to know the circumstances that made her they person she became. WOW…did she deliver. 
“I cried for everything….
For my past…
For my present…
And most of all.
For my future……” 
M. Robinson evokes many emotions from telling Lilith’s story; first and foremost… it is hot! If you thought VIP was shocking, The Madam will have you blushing in the corner. But, it is also a story of love, loss, triumph, and grief. The twists and turns of the story are truly something that kept me intrigued. I can’t wait to see where M. Robinson takes us in her next installment of the VIP Series. Bravo M!

MVP Synopsis:
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.

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?



M. Robinson
4 stars 

MVP is third book in the VIP Trilogy and what a way to end Ysa & Sebastian’s story. The way the M. gets your emotions going in this book is fantastic. Ysa’s story is so heart -wrenching and you can’t help but be sucked into her life completely. 

M. makes sure to give you just the right amount of back story and detail in this book to really give you a good feel of the relationship that Ysa has with everyone in her life. You also get to see sides of her you only got glimpses of in books one and two. The depths that M. goes to in book three will definitely pull at your heart strings for Ysa. I know my blood pressure was even on the rise a little at one point, but even with their struggles and Sebastian and Ysa still have their hot, stunning, sexually chemistry that keeps you panting for more! 

So, if you’ve read VIP and Madam, don’t wait too long to finish Ysa’s story in MVP and if you haven’t get the whole trilogy today! Maybe if we are lucky, we will get another VIP’s story in the future. Great end to wonderful trilogy.

Recovered from an abusive relationship, Juliette Moore is ready to live life on her own terms. Successful, intelligent, and slightly timid, she makes a pact with her best friends to seize the day. She gets more than she bargained in the tall, dark, and dangerous biker, Shooter.

Drawn to her purity and charm, Shooter, finds himself smitten before he knows what’s happening. With his claim firmly placed, he’s ready to go to war when she’s threatened by a madman from her past. Together they weather life storms and find common ground as they merge their two very different worlds.

In this Brotherhood you live or die by the three-piece patch. For Hold Dawson, Vice-President of the Hells Highwaymen Motorcycle Club, it’s not just black ink tattooed on his body, but the religion he worships, and the law that governs his life. Nothing else matters. Family by choice and not by blood. More sacred than a shared name. Bound by respect. Loyal to death.
Unity.  Respect.
Love.   Devotion.

But there’s another side to this life. One the President, Hold’s own father, lives and regulates by.

Merciless. Wrathful.
Murderous.    Dishonest.

It’s blood in and blood out and only one man gets to be king.

Excerpt: Meet Hold
He watched her slender artist’s hand caress her taut, tattooed abdomen, instantly jealous that it wasn’t his own blunt fingers that idly drifted across her silky flesh. Her eyes flickered with awareness to where he stood at the end of the bed watching her. It only made his balls draw up tight. His rock-hard erection jutted outward, thick and long. He couldn’t halt his hand from massaging it with slow, steady jerks. His teeth burrowed painfully into his bottom lip. - Hell's Ink
