Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Madam by M. Robinson5:52 AMAlma Lopez
Some people need love…
I need sex, money, control, and power.
Anyone could have those four things, but only one could have VIP. Becoming Madam was never a choice for me, it was a mandated order from the most powerful woman I knew- my mother. I was born to fill her shoes, never to make mistakes, or to show weakness.
You are the product of your environment. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree; you learn from what you see, not from what you're told. Nature vs. Nurture. I learned from it all; what I saw, what I didn't see, what I was told, and from reading between the lines.
I was raised with the belief that the world spun ONLY because of me. I held power as far back as I can remember, saw things no one ever talks about, and witnessed illegal acts of sex, drugs, and money by the time I was eighteen.
You saw a glimpse of me in VIP, now see it from the beginning. Enter my world where anything goes; no judgments, no remorse, no guilt. You play by my rules, or you don’t play at all. There are no limits to what I can do, or to what I can show you…I will ensure my legacy my any means necessary.
My name is Lilith Veronica Stone, and I am The Madam.

*Taps mic* Attention ladies and gents...the Madam has arrived and she is taking no effin prisoners! If you are looking for a kissing during sunsets while riding unicorns type of love story, then you are in the wrong place. The Madam is down and dirty, and takes the life that was given by the balls. If you read VIP, then everyone should be familiar with the overwhelming distaste of this bad ass bitch. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who wondered what the heck happened to her to make her so hard and cold right? Well here is her story, and it was intense, raw, and unforgiving. I loved every filthy naughty word written. M really outdid herself and unleashed that wicked dirty girl inside with this one. The Madam is an amazingly multi-dimensial character that reflects the epitome of a love/hate relationship. I personally love to hate her, but wouldn't have it any other way.
"Although, God is a bit of a voyeur in my eyes as he likes to watch. He also sets the rules; look but don't touch, touch but don't taste, taste but don't swallow."
Well, I got to say the Madam is filled with lots of treasured bits of wisdom. She definitely looks at the world through some sexy powered glasses. This book shines the light on how Lilith Veronica Stone was not molded, but born to become the Madam. It starts off with her as a little girl growing up with her mother, The Madam, and her side-lined father who had his own other family. There is much more to her family dynamic, but I won't reveal all the details. Her mother was strict, harsh, and unrelenting when it came to separating emotions that only showed weakness. Even though her mother was cold and firm with her, as she grew older, she couldn't help the draw her mother had on people; the powerful allure she emitted in everything she did. Eventually, Lilith slowly becomes aware of what it is her mother does for a living. This is where it starts to get juicy...so sit tight.
"Don't bite the hand that will feed you."
She proceeded to push the hair out of my face, turning me to watch the screen.
"You see that woman on display; you see her eyes, her face, her skin; she's beautiful. She's whatever she wants to be She owns everything and anything around her.
She's a vision.
She's wanted and needed.
She runs the show.
She is in control of it all.
She will be Madam one day...
She is you."
Lilith really is cut from the same cloth as her mother. She becomes impatient, and takes things into her own hands when it comes to her sexuality. She doesn't want to wait until she is told she is ready to sit at the grown-ups table...she takes the power into her own hands. Lilith decides one night to crash one of her mother's parties, while she is still an underaged teenager, mind you. She meets up with a handsome man she has met before at her mother's house and throws down her naughty card. Unfortunately her cards don't play out how she intended, and her life is forever changed by that night. Now we get a front row seat to the vulnerable woman who had a heart once upon a time, at least one capable of emotions, even if it was only a momentary glimpse.
I decided right then and there that I would also be incapable of love. No one will ever deserve that from me."
After she got her life back on track and began the construction on those impenetrable walls around her heart, she wanted nothing more than to become a VIP and learn everything there was to know about the business. Lilith became far better at being a VIP then even she was expecting. Let me tell you, some of those first scenes of her being a VIP caused an immediate need for a change of knickers. HOT, HOT, SCORCHING HOT! I know you are probably wondering if the Madam had a particularly special penis she favored while she was a VIP...maybe could have fallen in love with? Well, *clears throat* you are going to have to read to find out. *insert sinister evil laugh* The power that comes with being the Madam was just to strong for Lilith to wait around for it to be delivered on a silver platter, so she took things into her own hands.
"There is a fine line between loving life and being greedy for it, and I just crossed that line. I would take VIP when I wanted to, not when I was told."
Take that shit Lilith! Her life as the Madam was fast paced, and undeniably consuming. Now we get to see how she picks her girls and how she evolves from mere VIP to the Madam. I loved that the story eventually led to how she met Ysabelle. We learn many more details and unearth some dirty secrets that we didn't know about while reading VIP. The Madam was still ruthless, but you get to experience an occasional emotion cracking through when it comes to Ysabelle.
" My life completely took a 180 turn and I sat in the front seat without a Goddamn seatbelt on."
I knew I was in for quite a ride while reading The Madam and was totally prepared to reignite my distasteful feelings for her, but I was surprised by the unequivocal heart ache I experienced at the same time. Lilith is a very complex character who simply has no clue as to how to experience true love and trust from anyone around her. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I can't wait for MVP to continue Ysabelle and Sebastian's story. Thank you M. Robinson, my twisted sister from another mister, for yet another unforgettable story that at times bordered on disturbing, but only made me love it that much more! GO READ THIS BOOK!!!
5 out of 5 Dark, Disturbing, All-Consuming, Holy Hotness Stars!!!

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.
