Heat by Jamie K. Schmidt Review


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.

I have to say I actually enjoyed this book. I thought it would be a typical storyline, but I was presently surprised. My heart bleeds for Mallory in the beginning of the book with all the abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex. I was furious with her parents who brushed her abuse aside and I was thankful to her sister and Max who saved her. I thought that were the strong ones that would see her through. Then we saw the vulnerable side of her sister and of Max and his family and I realized that this book is about all of them surviving and growing stronger, not just Mallory.
Fair warning that there is some hot sex in this book that seemed up my glasses. But people this book has substance! It not just a fluff erotic novel, this is a book about some real life issues, so be prepared.
A wonderful 9 out of 10! I can't wait for the next book.
