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.

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.

 Stacia and Casey say…

We first met Brooke in the original VIP trilogy. As “The Madams” favorite, she was intriguing and we were excited to read and see her story unfold. This is a standalone novel and a spin off from the original trilogy.

“Love is blind”

“Love is selfish”

“Love makes us stupid”

“L-O-V-E, a four letter word that means something different to everyone”

Growing up in a home full of love, and wealth- Brooke had everything a girl her age desired. But, looks can be deceiving. Coming home late one night from a party, she finds that the family she always thought was secure is indeed not what it seemed to be. That one night sets Brooke’s life on a path she certainly was not destined for. Leaving behind her first love, she embarks on a mission to become top VIP and to never let her get heart broken again.

“We made men fall in love with us, not because we wanted to. But because we could. I was the illusion. I was the dream. It was a game. A game I wanted to play.”

Living the life she is determined to believe is her destiny, Brooke finds herself quickly falling for a man that sees through the tough façade she imparts. He evokes feelings in her that she refuses to acknowledge, leading them on a roller coaster ride that can only end in heart break– and boy did we get a ton of heart break!

“The way he affected my mind and my heart was petrifying, but it was so real. The emotion… I could touch it. I could feel it. I could taste it.”

Devon grew up in a home that could not be more different from the one that Brooke grew up in. While she learned the meaning of love, he learned the meaning of hate. Pulling himself out of the torment he has only ever known- he is determined to keep his family safe and taken care of. He cares so deeply for Brooke and we loved that he refused to give up on her.

M. Robinson writes some seriously sexy scenes, with sexual tension through the roof. Her scenes were new and added another dimension to the usual. Her writing is not for the faint at heart, and if you enjoy #skokiereads as much as we do- the buck stops here!

Teaser 1

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.
