I liked this and am glad that Gabriel and Elizabeth’s story have come to an end. However, I really think that the story has gone downhill since the first one. This book was definitely better than the second one but still weaker than the first. Although plot didn’t really lose momentum, I didn’t like how everything unraveled and how the problems were resolved.
Elizabeth and Gabriel have a lot of problems and they’ve always used sex to resolve everything. This installment isn’t any different and it got old pretty quick. Even when Elizabeth realizes they use sex as a crutch for their problems and it’s only a temporary remedy, she still succumbs to it. They keep promising each other no more secrets and that they’ll communicate and see things from each other’s point of view but none of it really happens. Then miraculously, everything falls into place and the problems are resolved. Yes, some of the measures taken to improve their relationship do help and they start to actually think about each other’s point of view but it seems like all the ways that their relationship has healed is a cliffsnotes version. I don’t think the remedies were given enough weight but was rather just thrown into the book to satisfy the reader.
Overall, I’m glad this is over. It started off as a good ride but plateaued out pretty quickly.
This was a great read but fell short for me compared to the other installments. I luved the VIP series, all of them except for this one. This one fell short because of the plot. I thought it was a too cliche and predictable for me.
Brooke’s reasoning for being a VIP was too weak. Even though the writing was fairly convincing I didn’t believe it. Poor little rich girl who has everything has her dreams shattered because of her parents. I was not sold. I didn’t empathize with her at all. I didn’t care for her as a person and am indifferent with her.
Devon was not very likable for me either and I was indifferent with him too. I like that he had strong morals and sense of responsibility in taking care of his family, but i just couldn’t connect with him. He was too stubborn for me with his relationship with Christine, I thought the nightmares as well as his “cure” for nightmares was way too cliche and I was so disappointed to have to read that. I thought the author was reading too many new adult romance to use that in the story. Continue reading “Tempting Bad by M. Robinson”
Dang this was a real f-ed up story. But a real good one. This was very dark and twisted, convoluted storyline and if I didn’t already read Gianna’s side of the story, I would have been thrown for a real twist.
I really enjoyed this. The characters were all very well developed and the writing was good. The writer formed a very convincing story and as far fetched as it may seem so some, I still think it’s believable.
