Review for VIP by M Robinson

The beginning- A point in time or space where something starts.

32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who 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 child hood with a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life. The one person that 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. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn’t control no matter how hard he tried. 

Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. Coming from worlds apart, beautiful, dark complexion Ysabelle Telle didn’t have the rich, protected background that Sebastian Vanwell had. Ysabelle lived a life of hell, in poverty, growing up with a drug addict mother that never cared, and horrific living conditions. Ysabelle lived for one person and one person only; herself. She was pure perfection, her beauty along with a flawless body had men lined up, driveling over her insuring 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.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and drug use. Intended for mature audiences.

 I just finished reading M. Robinson's debut novel, VIP and all I can say is, I NEED MORE!!!
I began reading this book not knowing much about it.  We start off being introduced to two characters, Sebastian and Ysabelle.  I loved Ysabel's character the first moment I was introduced to her.  M. Robinson has a way with getting you to connect deeply with her characters.  

I felt for Ysabelle from the beginning; she had a sad excuse for a mother, which is why she made some of the choices she did.  Sebastian on the other hand, had a great upbringing.  He was raised in a family of wealth.  He and his best friend Julia were inseparable.  From the start you knew that Julia felt more than friendship for Sebastian.  
I liked how the author described each character; it made me feel like I knew them.  My heart broke for the things that Ysabelle had to go through, and at the same time, my heart was happy for Sebastian for the most part.  To say I was on an emotional roller coaster while I read this book is a complete understatement. 
Without giving too much away in this review, a tragedy happens in Sebastian's life that makes him realize that he loves and wants to be with Julia.  While that's going on, Ysabelle meets Madam and joins her team with VIP.
Fate brings both Sebastian and Ysabelle to the same place, and that's where everything starts to get juicy!  Their story is so frustrating, beautiful, sad, and every other emotion one can feel (sigh).  The way M. Robinson describes the emotional state of what these two characters are going through is amazing.  She literally hits every emotion from loving to agonizing heartache.
I do wish that I didn't have to wait so long to see the both Ysabelle and Sebastian interact with each other. I felt like I would have liked for these two characters to have met a lot sooner.  When they do meet, the feelings expressed and the circumstances they go through are well worth the wait. 

This book was a great book; I would recommend it to anyone looking for a deeply emotional story of two people from very different backgrounds finding each other and the attraction that draws them together; it left me wanting so much more.  VIP had a bit of a slow start but definitely ended with a BANG.  I cant wait to read more!  M. Robinson is off to a great start with this series. 4 STARS!!!!!!
