Find on Goodreads
I’ve come from a privileged life and an even more privileged upbringing. My parents taught me right from wrong and everything in between… except I wanted the gray area. I wanted to live life on the edge with the possibility of falling over. I didn’t care about the consequences because I had no heart…
I left that on the floor of my parents’ bedroom door, shattered.
And never went back to pick up the pieces.

Family first.
I learned the meaning of the word hate.
I learned that life is a battlefield and I stood frontline.
I learned that praying doesn’t work and God doesn’t listen.
And I learned how to be a man…
All at the receiving end of my father’s fists, my mother’s tears, and my sisters screams.
You can’t run away from your past…
It will always find you, especially when you’re asleep.

Warning: Book contains adult situations.
Sex/language. Mature readers only.


I was wrapped up in this story from the first chapter.  At first I was afraid there were going to be too many characters to keep up with, but they all came together nicely in the end.  Brooke’s story was one of great heartache, watching her pull away from love due to the fact that the “idea” of it was shattered for her at such an early age was just SAD.  And poor thing, just when she thought that maybe she was wrong, she managed to HELP love prove itself unworthy again.  Devon’s story almost made me put the book down, it hit really close to home for me and I felt his pain of growing up in a home where domestic violence was “Normal”.  It was awesome how the book started in their youth and followed them well into adulthood, making it very realistic and pointing out that life is NOT a never ending fairytale and sometimes bad things happen A LOT before you find a “settling down point”.  I really really enjoyed this book, the story line and the characters.  Way to go M. Robinson, you made me feel all kinds of emotion from this story and I LOVED it.

I was there, but I wasn’t.
I danced around in a sea of emptiness and longing, it moved around me easily, carelessly, harshly.
It was all and it was nothing.
It made me full and it made me empty.
It pleased me and it dismayed me.
I didn’t care. I was there to do a job. To be a VIP. I played my part beautifully, just as I always did. Letting myself get taken away on empty promises of nothing, but somehow seemed like everything. 
M. Robinson loves to read. She favors anything that has angst, romance, triangles, cheating, love, and of course sex!
