Steam Rating: Scorcher Overall Rating: 4.5 STARSThis isn’t a love story, but a story about love
There are so many things I want to say about this novel. Seriously, it touched me very deeply, and I really enjoyed reading it. But first I NEED to let you know what this novel contains →cheating. If this offends you or you can not handle reading about it you minus well stop reading here. Because VIP is NOT your average storyline with a perfect characters. In fact it is VERY far from it. Not only does a seemingly “happily” married man cheat, he does so with a prostitute while falling in love with her. 8-O
I don’t mean to spoil it for you but I feel the need to warn you because many who read this may be taken aback. I literally told the Author she had Balls of Steel for publishing this book, but I’m so glad she did!! It was a breath of fresh air reading about characters who made REAL LIFE mistakes, it felt REAL and I could picture it happening in REAL life. And that’s because it DOES happen in real life. I know I read to get away from reality sometimes, but it’s also nice to read something different, and more REAL…
The story is told in two POV’s. Ysabelle’s “Ysa” and Sebastian’s “Sebby” are from two entirely different worlds, and we get to see that first hand because we watch them both grow up. And this is entirely necessary because this shapes who they both will become and leads us to understand why they make some of the poor choices they do. I am not condoning these choices, I am just stating that I can see how they would make them. Sebastian literally has it all, and has lived a very privileged life with loving parents. Ysa was raised by a single mom who was more concerned about her next high than she was her daughter.
Considering this book is approximately 600 pages we get to read quite a bit about their childhood. And I really liked it. I was so immersed in their lives that the pages flew by. And it was fascinating being in a young boy turned man’s head, watching him grow.
I really can’t go more into the storyline anymore for fear it will spoil it for you but I will let you know, the sex is HOT, the chemistry between Ysa and Sebastian is amazing, and the emotions are palpable. I went through every emotion I could think of while reading this, joy, sadness, grief, horror, anger, and love. Even with all the devastation that we are put through, I still say the overwhelming theme was beautiful because it was about true love and soul mates.“You were made for me, baby. Do you know that? You were put on this earth for me.”
Overall, I highly recommend you give this one a try if you can deal with the sensitive subject matter. I would definitely read anything M. Robinson writes in the future :-)~StacyHgg
