Series: Club Inferno
tl;dr recommendation: Three stars for lots of sex!!
Deep in the shadows of her exclusive fashion resort, Couture, Colleen Bryant presides over a much more intimate world: Club Inferno. The successful businesswoman and sex instructor has built an empire that caters to the BDSM elite, but now she finds herself longing for something a bit more ordinary: a man to love. She’s not sure how to find someone who will accept what she does for a living—or the kinks that drive her wild—until her old flame, ex-pro football player Chase Fairwood, comes back in her life.
There’s no woman as hot, sexy, or exciting as Colleen—and Chase knows it. He also knows he’s man enough to play her games, and to give as good as he gets. His return to Club Inferno reignites Colleen’s scorching demands, along with a new determination to test his resolve. Soon he’s competing against a rival Dom to brand Colleen as his own. But Chase has a secret weapon: the burning desire to offer his body—and his heart—in sweet surrender.
Colleen owns a BDSM sex club/fashion club that is part fashion, part sex instruction, part BDSM craziness. If you’re into books that are basically All About Sex, then you absolutely MUST pick this one up. There is nakedness at almost every single turn, which really isn’t a bad thing on the whole of it. Chase is a former football star – and former lover of Colleen’s – and their familiarity is enticing and hot. The story between Chase and Colleen was sweet but for me it wasn’t entirely believable.
Colleen is a dominatrix and she’s searching for a submissive. Chase is obviously not part of the scene and has no idea what he’s getting into. I felt like Chase was taking her however he could get her, compromising everything he likes in exchange for her likes; whereas Colleen wasn’t compromising much at all. There’s whipping & spanking & TALK OF KNIVE PLAY (nothankyou. That’s a hard limit for me)….and there’s also some semi-public hot scenes that will make you heat right up….
I rated this book with three stars because while the story is an ok read and the sex is mostly hot, I need a bit more substance to really pull me in.
But if that’s your style & you want a pretty quick read with lots of action – read on!
