Review ~ Heat by Jamie K. Schmidt

Heat:  A Loveswept Contemporary Erotic Romance
(Club Inferno #1)
by Jamie K. Schmidt
Publication Date: June 03, 2014


Style and seduction collide in Jamie K. Schmidt’s Heat—sure to please fans of Fifty Shades of Grey—as the world’s best-dressed men and women shed their clothing . . . and their inhibitions.

On the run from her abusive fiancé, ER doctor Mallory Bryant arrives at her sister’s Connecticut resort desperate for a place to restore balance to her life. But Couture is more than a haven for the rich and fashionable. Beneath its elegant facade is an erotic playground where dominants and submissives play out their fantasies. At first, Mallory is wary of Max Spencer, the martial arts trainer acting as her bodyguard—until he introduces her to passion so intense she wants nothing more than to surrender to his touch.

As one of Couture’s most skilled doms, Max enjoys taking Mallory to the limits of pleasure. It’s a dangerous proposition, and as their sensual games draw them into a relationship beyond the boundaries of pupil and master, Max starts spiraling out of control. But when Mallory’s violent past catches up with her, Max knows what he must do: draw her closer than ever before, even if it means risking a surrender of his own.

My Review:
4 out of 5 stars

Mallory, an ER Doctor, is finally done with dealing with her fiancés abusive behavior and his drug addiction.   Having nowhere to go and getting low on funds, she goes to her estranged sister, Colleen, who is the owner of Couture.  Although there are many business ventures inside this building, the members-only sex club, Club Inferno, caters to clients who are into BDSM and other kinky sexual activities.  Assigned as Mallory’s bodyguard, Max Spencer works at Couture as a Martial Arts Instructor and as a Dom on the Inferno side.  Things will only heat up from here!

Max and Mallory are really fun and interesting characters.  The sexual chemistry between the two is over the top HOT and the erotic sexual scenes are SUPER intense.  I really enjoyed the plot (yes, there is an actual plot!) and I couldn't put this one down until I devoured every single page of this captivating story.   I hope some of the other characters get their own book in the series, as I would love to see more of them.  Overall, this was a hot and steamy, well-written book that I really enjoyed reading and will definitely read the other books in this series as they come out.
