#Review: Conviction by Nicole Edwards

Conviction (Club Destiny, #1)Conviction by Nicole Edwards
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

HOLY HELL! That was eye opening!

Let me explain that I was not expecting the events of this story. I somehow had missed the m/f, m/f/m, m/f/m/m rating in the description when I started reading and I normally am not interested in ménage story lines, but I’m glad I read it anyways!

Samantha Kielty has received a promotion and her new boss is hot, powerful, and sexy. How is she supposed to maintain a professional atmosphere around this man? Her job is everything to her and any personal relationship is strictly off-limits. Logan McCoy is instantly attracted to Sam and wants to show her that she’s been missing out and he can show her a whole new world of sexual desires. She will need to let him have control and that is not in her nature. The sparks between them fly, but can they let love burn as well?

"All of the things he longed to do to her, with her. They were on constant replay in his mind, contributing to his permanent hard on and making it harder than hell to control himself when she was around. Part of him worried what she would think, what she would do when he took control. As strong and independent as she was, he thought she might be challenged by him, but the way she gave herself over to him so easily made Logan believe it was something she needed."

CONVICTION is hot, hot, hot! Logan definitely pushes some boundaries. He blew mine apart and set a bomb on the other side. Sam doesn’t show much resistance to the sexual exploration, but her main focus is protecting her career. A relationship between them is a big corporate no-no. I wondered most of the time whether Logan was using her as a toy or really had feelings, but really the sex takes center stage in this story.

The reason for a 3 star rating is that there wasn’t much to the characters. No big reveals or life-altering admissions. No one was really well developed and it left the plot pretty flat. There was no need for the book to be over 500 pages. I could have gotten just as much out of the story if it had been 200 pages. Let me repeat this though, because it is very important, the sex is mind blowing hot.

I mistakenly delved into this world of ménage and I’m glad I did. I thought I wouldn’t like it or wouldn’t understand the connections between partners. Nicole Edwards did an amazing job of describing a taboo desire and making it relatable to even the most inexperienced reader, like myself. CONVICTION really was all about the sex, but that’s really not a problem if that’s what you’re interested in reading. If you are looking to branch out and want to test the waters into a more taboo subject, than CONVICTION is one to read.
