Blog Tour Review: Conviction by Lesley Jones

She was mine. Our love unquestioned. Our futures planned. But she didn't show. All that we had, all that we meant, and after all that was said, she just didn't show. That one act by her changed everything, but it especially changed me and from that moment on, there was no going back. No words of love, no whispered promises, just sex and drugs and rock and roll. No one gets a piece of Reed, but what they will get is the night of their life, the chance to let go, break their own rules and enjoy the best, the dirtiest, filthiest sex ever... Along with the other four people in my bed.
 I thought he loved me, I believed everything he said, every promise that he made but then, when I needed him more than I'd needed anyone in my life, when I was at my most vulnerable, he let me down. He chose to take a different path and leave me to pick up the pieces of my now broken life. I was changed forever and chose the easy option, letting others take charge of my destiny, until once again, I'm let down in the cruelest of ways.
Dirty filthy sex.
High emotion.
And a bit more sex.
Conviction by International bestselling author, Lesley Jones has it all. Out March 2015.

I became a huge fan of Lesley Jones with her Carnage series. Those books were some of my favorites for 2014 so I was excited that she was releasing another book but a different series.

Conviction starts off in the past where we see our two main characters Conner and Nina was teens. Then we flash forward fifteen years and Conner is a successful rock star and Nina owns beauty salons.

When we first meet grown up Conner’s is a manwhore. Kind of since he doesn’t really have sex, he just bosses people around while they have sex. To me, this part felt very forced. There was some repetition in thoughts during this time which kind of got annoying. BUT I will say some of the scenes were pretty hot. A tragedy happens that rocks Conner’s world sending him home from touring.

Nina as an adult is in a love less marriage. I felt for Nina. She was manipulated throughout her whole life and because of that she was unhappy.

When Nina and Conner’s paths crossed again is where the book got better for me. We saw a much sweeter and human side of Conner which I enjoyed.

There was a small cross over with some Carnage boys which made me happy to see since I love them so much.

This book was good. I was sucked in and didn’t want to put my kindle down but something fell just a tad short for me. I enjoyed it the story but I didn’t fall in love like I hoped to. 

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne, Australia. It's a whole new way of life for us down here, we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.
As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football...The round ball version.  I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work. I am also rather partial to a glass... or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.
