Heat by Jamie K. Schmidt

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 Club Inferno 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 Club Inferno’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.

Heat is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I really, really wanted to like this book. It had a great premise, but it fell flat for me. I just couldn’t connect with any of the characters at all. Max was a Dom, but he wasn’t very dominating at all. Mallory was an ER doctor, but she didn’t seem that smart at times. Most of the time I was really bored when reading this and I only finished it because I was hoping it would get better.

Characters: I couldn’t connect with any of the characters and didn’t feel they were well written.
Sex: There was lots of it but as a reader I couldn’t “feel” the passion or steaminess
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Since it says #1 in the title I would think there will be more
Genre: Romance/Erotica
Would I read more by this author: Yes
