Review: Heat (Club Inferno #1) by Jamie K. Schmid

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
Most books fall into 3 categories for me. A hit, almost there, and a miss. Heat was a miss for me. However, it did have some almost there qualities. This book was not what I was expecting.

Lets start with the good stuff. I really loved the plot of this book. Fashion and BDSM all under one roof... love it! I though it was really cool how the author mixed the two. I absolutely fell in love with the creativeness behind this book. While I was reading, I wished I could go, or just find a place just like it!

The romance between Max and Mallory was cute, and the sexy scenes were steamy! I really liked that Max ignored Mallory's sister, and dated Mallory anyways. I really loved all of the cute little things he did for Mallory.

The thought behind the whole book was good, but it could have been better. I couldn't connect with the characters. It could use some more work. Max was a Dom, but we never really saw his dominant side. Couture had a lot of BDSM parties , but I wish we would have actually had some BDSM scenes. Mallory was an okay character. I thought she was trying a little to hard to fit into the BDSM world.

I gave this book 3.5 stars. While I liked Couture, and all of the romantic things Max did for Mallory, I just wish there was more.
