Publisher's Summary

USA Today best seller.

Style and seduction collide 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, 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.

Escaping a bad situation

Our heroine turns to her sister after a bad breakup, who in turn assigns one of her doms to help her adjust. Turns out they adjust quite well.

This is an erotic romance with strong elements of D/S. The story is very well written, very entertaining and very steamy. The characters are well developed and realistic, even the supporting cast. Our hero and heroine has wonderful chemistry and support each other through some troubled spots. All of this made for a very enjoyable reading/listening pleasure.

As this review is based on the audiobook release, I should also point out that the narration was clearly enunciated and well done with one minor flaw. That flaw is that the narrator apparently was not taught about periods as there were often no pauses and one sentence frequently blended right into the next. Other than that, it was a pleasure to listen to.

Highly recommended.

I received an ARC from Story Origin for review purposes.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this story. It was entertaining and hot. I liked the characters and the way the story played out. We get to see the characters build a relationship and grow with what has happened to them. Mallory has been in an abusive relationship and has to deal with the repercussion from that. She is drawn to Max and they have to figure that out in the midst of it all, while being in, essentially, a secret sex club that her sister runs. Mallory gets to explore some of the BDSM aspects with Max through this story. The narrator was only okay for me, something just didn’t seem to click. She didn’t do a bad job just didn’t connect for me. Overall. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would be interested in the rest of the series.

Feeling it

Trigger warnings! I wish that I'd have known going in about some of the that were addressed in this book. Drug abuse and domestic violence are mentioned at the very start. So no spoilers there. I love the way that the author dealt with these issues. Not just a brief mention and forgotten. Now on to the rest of the story. This book was so hot. Not overly sexed like it could have been. Especially considering the setting. It wasn't rushed, the character development was well done, the romance was well drawn out, and thre storyline just pulls you in and holds you from the start. My only negative was the resolution with the ex. Everything else was awesome.

Club Inferno - book 1 (I'm hooked)

What a read/listen. First in a series that can be read as a stand alone but once you read this steamy, sweet romance, you'll just want to keep reading. I loved Max and Mallorys dynamic. I especially loved Max's gentleness and dominance. Loved the idea of this Club Couture and its secrets. Well written steamy and sweet romance! I think it would be great with a dual narration m/f. Hope to be able to listen to the rest of this series!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

ABUSE SHOULD NEVER BE EXCUSED

I received this book for free and am giving my honest and voluntary review

A story of a battered woman doctor and a physically and mentally abused child, turned martial artist as an adult. The woman learns to find her sexuality when she runs to her sister and falls in love. They find themselves and have their HEA.

The narration is almost top-notch. The narrator did a good job on making it distinguishable on what women were talking, but failed on the men.
