32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious boat. 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 only 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. Warning sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.
HOLY MOTHER! What the hell did I just read?! I am in freakin shock and complete awe at the moment having just finished VIP by M. Robinson. She just took me on a roller coaster ride that left my insides shaking. Ysabelle Telle has had a god awful life. Growing up with a crack whore mother, living in section 8 housing, and completely neglected, she is desperate to escape the nightmare that is her life. She uses boys to get what she wants and revels in the power that she feels when she uses them. She winds up in Florida and tries to start over. She lucks out and gets a job working at a bar where she meets Devon Hill who becomes a good friend.
Sebastain Vanwell grew up in a picture perfect life surrounded with love. A perfect cocoon. He had parents who doted on him, 2 amazing best friends, a great upbringing. His best friend Julia, or Babygirl as he affectionately calls her, is by his side through it all. Olivia, Julia’s adopted sister, comes into the picture and they become the three musketeers. Inseparable. I don’t want to go into every detail of their relationship—you’ll want to experience that for yourself. Just know that they are entwined and have such a strong bond. You will laugh with them, cry with them, and even scream with frustration in so many situations. We journey through these characters lives from a young age and watch as they learn, grow, and develop into who they become as adults. Sebastain becomes a very successful yacht broker and marries Babygirl, the love of his life. They have a son and live the picture perfect white picket fence life.
“Our family became the air that I breathed. I didn’t think it was possible for me to love Julia any more than I already did, she had given me Christian. She had made me a father, and made us a family. There wasn’t anything I wouldn’t do for them.”
Ysabelle, well, Madam strolls into her life and offers her the job of a lifetime. She becomes a VIP—working as an escort for a prestigious establishment.
“I did what I wanted to do. I wanted to feel power, control, I wanted to feel everything. I wanted that like I wanted my next breath.”
One day their worlds collide and BAM it’s a freakin whirlwind. No, I do not agree with cheating. No, I don’t think that solves any problems. I’m normally the type who wants the HEA and for the husband and wife to work out their problems whatever the cost. In this book though, I found myself questioning my morals and values. I wanted Sebastian and Ysa together. I was screaming at my kindle, my heart breaking for Ysa, “the other woman”!!!! But he’s a married man and she’s an escort, right? That’s all it will be is just some hot, scorching sex. WRONG!!! Emotions, attachments, and GASP—love come into play. She’s his obsession, his need, his want, his addiction. He can’t let her go.
“Stop.” I demanded. “Just fucking stop. I can’t walk away from you, any more than you can walk away from me. We’re in this fucked up limbo, but Goddamn it we’re in it together, and I will not lose you. Do you hear me, I will not fucking let you go.”
How can he keep Ysabelle and Julia? How can he make a decision that wouldn’t hurt one and not the other? He can’t. It’s not how it goes. So you are left with one hell of a ride. It’s like a tilt-a-whirl, or the freakin free-fall. Hold on tight and enjoy the ride. It is crazy, twisted and so different that you aren’t going to want to get off!!! Well…maybe you will…get off! And your husband/boyfriend/partner will be thanking M. Robinson!!!!
