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 never thought I would be capable of falling in love with you, and now I don’t think I’m capable of falling out of love with you.

There is so much I want to say, but I really can't, and I really wish I could but then you'll hate me for it... Once again M. Robinson has twisted a tale so intense that you will hate how much you love it. The entire time I was stuck alternating between Love and Hate. The build up and history provided for each character is so detailed that t

If you read VIP you probably already fell in love with Brooke and Devon. Tempting Bad is the provocative side of their story, a side that will be heartbreakingly beautiful and with the signature level of naughtiness that only M. Robinson can deliver.

Devon might only seem like the sexy Alpha Male bar owner who works hard and plays even harder but there's definitely more to him. He is haunted by a horrible c

Ummm...Being BAD Never Felt So Good, especially when reading TEMPTING BAD by M. Robinson. Sinfully sexy and tantalizing!!! That pretty much sums up my feelings when I was reading this book.

Tempting Bad is a spin-off of the VIP trilogy and it chronicles the tale of Brooke, a VIP and Devon, a bar owner. In the previous books, we all got a taste of their distinct personalities. Did we really know them? We

Good lord... what a bumpy ride!

This book gutted me. I already know going into one of Robinson's books that she is going to rip my heart out, but since her storylines are pretty unpredictable, I still always feel stunned and broken hearted when the author takes her strong characters and breaks them down ruthlessly. Oh how it hurt when Brooke and Devon hit rock bottom. But, have no worries, they do get their HEA.

Oh, and don't even get me started on how dirty this book is. All I can say is that Ro

Brooke... wow. What a strong lead. She is beautiful, desirable, brings every man to their knees. But there is so much more to her that we don't know. So much depth. Her thoughts, her past, her present. We see all she's gone through and how she wound up where she is. I LOVED her!!! One of the best female leads I've read!

This book is a spin off from the VIP series. It can also be read as a standalone.

This is Brooke and Devons story. If you've read the VIP series then you've met them before. They are two damaged souls. Out of all the characters in this series these two are definitely my favourite.

This is a dark and gritty story. The author gave me an emotional roller coaster of a story that I literally inhaled. Loved it.
Amanda Fiore
I'm still reeling from what I read. This is NOT your everyday romance, it isn't light hearted. It isn't for the faint of heart or those who are looking to read about flowers, romance and chocolate.

No, this is not a book for you if that's what you're searching for.
This is for those who want to have their heart ripped out, stomped on by a couple hundred buffalo, lit on fire, shoved in a tiny box and mailed to Istanbul, where it's taken hostage by terrorists and then, maybe just then returned back

4 stars!

Whew! What a rollercoaster ride. If you’ve read the VIP series, you know that Brooke is one of Madam’s employees- she’s a little (okay maybe A LOT) on the wild side, extremely sexual and daring, but also very damaged from her teen years and on. This book covers many years and I actually liked reading about how Brooke and Devon were before they met each other.

Brooke is in high school with what she thinks is the perfect life. She’s got friends, a love interes

I received an ARC of this book in Exchange for a honest review. I have read all of M. Robinson's books, so I could not pass up reading this one. OMG every book i have read by M. Robinson has been better than the previous. This book by far is the best she has written. I am truly impressed with the writing and the connection of the characters have with each other. Also, the depth of emotion in the book makes you feel. The Author can make you laugh, cry, piss you off, and cry again all in the same ...more

This book is by far the best work by Author M. Robinson till this day. She has the ability to make you feel what the characters are feeling and that's what I truly felt.

In Tempting Bad we get to see what Brooke and Devon went through in life, before they even met each other. Brooke had the life anyone would want, but you could feel what she was going through knowing what her parents did. To me Devon, I could relate to cause when growing up he not only protected family, but loved them with all hi

Overall Opinion: This was an ok read. I haven't read the VIP series before, but I don't think that really affected my opinion on this book. I feel like it was all over the place. We get a really in depth history of the MCs for most of the book, then they become friends with benefits, then they break up, then they live happily ever after. It had some hot scenes for sure, but the rest of the story I felt was lacking. I wouldn't say that I hated it though...especially because at one point

This story is about Brooke and Devon. I feel in love with Brooke when she was in VIP and then MVP. Devon, well I had a hate relationship with him. I have to be honest I really wasn’t looking forward to his story; as I was more interested in Brooke. Well let me tell you I was so wrong! M. Robinson said that I would fall in love with him, and well she was right on. It was touch and go there, but in the end I fell in love with the damaged soul.

I just don't know where to start! I am in a book hangover after this one. Bravo Ms. Robinson you have wacked this one out of the park.
We have had the pleasure of meeting Brooke and Devon in the previous books in the V.I.P series. Hold on kids their story is going to pull you in and rip you apart.
Brook is the quintessential V.I.P. She is smart, sexy, irresistible to men and women she is immune to love. She loves her job and hell it shows. Brooke was raised in the perfect family. She had loving

“It’s like the world stops spinning for just a few seconds and then night takes over. Once the sunrise appears, you have a whole new start to try again. A whole new day to make changes and decisions that could not only affect you, but everyone around you.”

I knew from the moment I started reading this book I would be hooked. I wasn’t wrong, I was clutched in the embraces of the pages and could not for the life of me break free. And I didn’t want to. Not even when it was over…

So BAD.. This book is so Fucking BADass. Tempting Bad is a VIP Trilogy spin-off the story of Brooke and Devon. If you read the first book you'll know the rest of it though this can be read as a standalone. So this book... what more can I say? Im so fucking hooked with it like a moth to a flame. Hands down to M. Robinson for another amazing story. This book makes you feel every emotion, heartbreak, love and lust. Its amazing how the two different and yet broken peop

I still don't feel that Devon is really in love with Brooke. They're both broken people and I think each other deserve a better person than each other. I think it was Brooke who is so into Devon, not the other way around. I felt her inner tormoil. It was just too much. I'm really rooting for Brooke, this girl is so much more that what she thinks she is. She made so many mistakes and paid for it. It was just so heartbreaking. On the other hand, Devon, I don't like him! I hate him since M

This was a good story to read after VIP (Sebastian and Isabelle). We got to know Brooke and Devon and what a journey this was. I loved these two together, but it was a hard road for them. Very erotic at time... like, many times! Love this author, she is not shy when it comes to descriptions.

Tempting Bad showcases Devon and Brooke. These are two characters that are pretty well known and liked in the VIP series. This story can technically be read as a standalone, but I really do feel that you

There are so many books that keep the lead characters deep secrets until, we are 25 chapters in. Leaving us with a fantastic book in the beginning and a rushed ending... I find that annoying. Tempting Bad is NOT that book!
