Blog Tour & Review ~~ Tempting Bad by M. Robinson
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.
KERRY’S 3.5 STAR REVIEW
LOUISA’S 3.5 STAR REVIEW
Brooke was a little rich girls who’s life changed forever when she figured out a family secret. Devon has made it his life’s mission to care for his mother and siblings because he has a father that doesn’t.
Between the two of these characters, we have some serious issues, they are both so broken. The emotions that this book brought out in me was tangible. I cried to hear the sadness in both their lives. The turn in which Brooke’s life takes was devastating. She claims she was happy as a VIP but when Devon enter’s her life, it’s obvious that she has no idea what happiness is.
M. Robinson has earned herself a top stop in my book for writing love scenes. Some of the scenes between Devon and Brooke were so damn hot…flaming. But then in the next chapter I would be in the deepest of depression seeing the deterioration of their relationship with their pasts coming back to haunt them, not allow them to trust each other or their feelings. The angst in this book was top notch. I found myself screaming at both Devin and Brooke for their behavior and bad decision they were making.
M. Robinson is a beautiful writer and the Queen Dirty Bird for me! It was an honor and pleasure to read Tempting Bad and I look forward to the next book she has already begun to write!
ARC’s were received in return for honest reviews.
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.
