Samantha Kielty only thought she knew who she was and what she was made of. Until she was offered a position that would take her from her small office in San Antonio, Texas to that of her company’s larger, more upscale headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Sam hadn't seen anything. Her new boss is not only intensely sexy, he is also about to show her things she's only read in books.
Logan McCoy’s life was steady going until he set his sights on his new Vice President of Project Operations. The woman makes his blood boil and makes him want things he didn't realize he was in search of. Logan only hopes Samantha is capable of handling his dominating, controlling ways… especially between the sheets... or in the shower.
When Logan and Sam get together, sparks fly and they bring out each other’s deepest, darkest desires. He will push Sam past her sexual boundaries, and she will bring out his need to possess her in every way. But, can they find love within the inferno that burns between them?

It might have something to do with being a monogamous heterosexual or possibly I'm just too vanilla in my sex life, but this book was more entertainment than erotica for me. The first woman orgasm was done without a touch from anyone, but was solely because she was so turned on by giving a man a blow job…I don't know about anyone else, but I have gotten nowhere near that point without a lot of touching going on, so it became the first humorous point for me. Those types of orgasms happened throughout as well as within an hour both male and female had up to a dozen orgasms one right after another and if that truly happens in the real world, I think there would be a lot less depression in this world. I kept listening to this audiobook not for the erotica, sexy nature of it but because I was wondering what they'd come up with next. One, two, three guys brought in and then the one possessive, controlling guy that somehow could manage to share his (and only his) girl with the other two guys. Things didn't add up. He was constantly telling her what to do and when to do it and repeatedly would tell her she was not allowed to come till he allowed it, and I remember only one time where he actually allowed it. He yelled at her a few times for coming too soon, but the other fifty times she orgasmed, she got away without getting yelled at somehow even though he yelled at her for several other things. He needed to demand obedience to everything and follow through making sure she listened or none of it.
Another thing that didn't settle with me was that the cover. It showcases a beautiful woman and a well-dressed man, but it brings out a defensive, feminist nature in me. Are women only sexy when in lingerie; is that really all we are good for? He loved how much drive she had and how far she was in the corporate ladder, so why couldn't she be in a suit as well? I also imagined this six foot, huge man being a lot larger than the guy that seems to be only a few inches taller than her on the cover. While I'm on the topic of the cover...the title as well didn't fit for me. Conviction, being law terminology, I assumed the hot man pictured on the cover would be a lawyer and/or the story would somehow bring the law into the story. It was given only as a safe word, which was never used (boring), and then did not involve enough back story to understand the underlying meaning of the word and why she chose it. This seemed to be a short novella that was turned into a novel. I wish as it was a longer book would have involved some twists and turn and not such a cookie cutter straight and narrow path with such an easy obstacle and perfect ending. It was too similar to too many other stories to stand out, except in reference to the crazy, unimaginable sex that was happening in every chapter. This is definitely an explicit, X-rated story and although I was relieved it did have some backstory involved in between the crazy sexcapades, it wasn’t enough for me to become compassionate towards the characters. I needed a better and deeper character development and well as not being creeped out that an identical twin brother is regularly having sex with the other twins now wife and he enjoys watching it because they look alike...there is a way to scream that you are way too full of yourself that you enjoy watching "yourself" have sex with someone.
One more thing that I was concerned about was how many times she walked away because she was uncomfortable with the sex not being vanilla, being between only the two of them. She left multiple times for weeks sometimes not talking to him before she was not comfortable with what was going on, so it seemed that he was pressuring her into something she did not want to do and judging her for being so normal and boring, looking down on her in a sense for not already exploring being thrown around by three different men at once. She seemed too hesitant throughout the entire book and to me was being forced into sex acts because that’s how she twistedly showed her trust to a man she was falling in love with. Whole story was off to me.
