Before I even started this book, I had made up my mind that I would not like it. How could I when it was about Madam, who I absolutely despised in VIP?! But after only a few chapters in, I knew I would not be able to hold on to my dislike for this character. Love her or hate her, she is honest about who she is and that alone won me over.
“Darling, I don’t fit the part, the part fits me” -Madam
Madam gives every alpha male out here in book world a run for their money. You want to measure cocks? Hers is BIGGER! There is no one like her. SHE IS A BEAST! *Grins* An unstoppable, non negotiable BEAST.
What readers know after reading VIP:
She’s bad and she knows it.
She’s unapologetic and she knows it.
She’s confidant and she shows it in EVERY move she makes.
‘For you to understand my life you need to live it. I don’t know if reading about it will do it justice, nonetheless, I am going to try. There are always three sides to every story, yours, mine, and the truth. I deserve a chance to explain myself. Love me or hate me, it’s who the fuck I am. Madam.’
In this supremely character driven story we watch Lilith Stone go from childhood in to adulthood as the truth of who she will one day become is made clear to her early on in her youth. Not only was she going to be a VIP, she is also to be the Madam. Even as a child Lilith never misses a beat, she takes it all in. The lifestyle...but mostly the power...she becomes enraptured by it in her teens. Learning from the best, her very own mother Vivian Stone, at the time better known as The Madam.
I would let her train me, mold me, and teach me everything I needed to know.
But...I would never be like her.
I would be better.
M. Robinson tackles important pieces from each decade as Lilith grows and eventually becomes The Madam.
I think readers are use to seeing males as the dominant, controlling, sadistically cold hearted bastards. Well, Madam is a dominant, controlling, sadistically cold hearted bitch. So be prepared. She is calculated and she does nothing by mistake it’s always part of a bigger plan. She will scheme and manipulate until she gets what she wants.
By the end of the book tails will wag. I’m like a bitch in heat I need my next fix. I NEED BOOK 3!
My head is still spinning. This book is TOTALLY different from VIP in many, many ways..Where as VIP had a slow crawl to the story line filled with anticipation for worlds to collide, and some very hot sex scenes, giving us dual pov’s with one very conflicted character(Seb) while the other was assertive and strong willed(Ysa). The Madam was the opposite; its fast paced, with only Lilith’s pov and boy is it one HELL of a pov, she is very ambitious, and on top of that there is a high sexual charge that permeated throughout the entire book.
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 childhood 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 ensuring 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.
