As this was my first read by Jamie K. Schmidt, I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed. I don't read a ton of erotic BDSM romances, but this wasn't too heavy, it was quite sexy, and I am definitely interested enough to go back and read the first two of the series. I am SUCH a series whore...I normally need to read in order or else it screws with my OCD Nature!

Colleen the heroine was awesome...she was strong, and was definitely NOT a doormat...her only fault was that she was a little TOO easy on Chas

This is a sexually charged story about a second chance at love. A lot has changed in the ten years since Colleen Bryant and Chase Fairwood have seen each other. Ten years ago, Colleen she was madly in love with Chase, a professional football player, but they broke up and Colleen married a much older, rich man. Colleen is now a rich widow and has the money to do whatever she wants. So she now enjoys an alternate lifestyle where she’s a dominatrix at a BDSM club she owns.

ARC graciously provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely loved this book. After reading so much Erotica is was really refreshing to read a book with such a strong heroine as a Domme. I loved that aspect of this book.

Colleen knew herself and knew just what it took to make her happy. After being criticized for falling in love and marrying an older man, let alone having that man be a billionaire, she is proving to be not only strong in the fashion world but a true Domme o

Jamie K. Schmidt is a new-to-me author. I was lucky enough to get a review copy thanks to the publisher through NetGalley. This is the first book by Jamie K. Schmidt I've read and while it is the 3rd book in the series, I was easily able to keep up with the characters.

Colleen Bryant is such a strong character. She is also a Domme and loves everything about her kinky lifestyle. She has only ever been a sub to her husband Alfie, but after his death she never wanted to give up control again. While

Again .... Holy HOTNESS batkids! continues to be a theme @ Club Inferno!
Right off the bat I'm gonna tell you that if you want to really enjoy this story, then you are going to have to throw out all the preconceived notions or ideas you may have on what an alpha male should or should not be/act like. Because in THIS story, Chase plays the role of the submissive. I use the wording 'plays the role' because that is exactly what he does, he plays a role. This isn't really who he is. But he is willing
Colleen Bryant is the owner of multiple hotels and resorts including the Couture Resort , centered around fashion and her burgeoning fashion line , but also hidden in the depths of couture is Club Inferno a private BDSM club that she owns and is a practicing Dominatrix.
Colleen may be the Mistress of Club Inferno but when it comes to her own sex life, it has been months , which is why when her ex - boyfreind Chase Fairwood shows up wanting her back she is willing to give him a second chance, but

YES! FINALLY! I have been dying to read Colleen's story since we first met her in Heat where she was introduced as the owner of an exclusive fashion resort, Couture, as well as Club Inferno a private members only sex club, which is just below Couture. Well, let me tell you that this book did not disappoint at all!

This Domme is going to get what she has wanted since ex-pro football player Chase Fairwood broke her heart ten years earlier. The chemistry between the two is like a ticking time bomb

Ok...mixed feelings. I love this series and author. I had a hard time with this particular installment. I actually put it down a couple times..err.

What I love is that all the characters are in all the books and that they all flow. It's like one big happy family. :) This particular read is on Colleen and Chase. They both have to deal with their past break-up so they can move forward in their highly chemistry and lust filled relationship.

Colleen is a Dominatrix and loves control. What my problem

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is the third in a series, and definitely follows on from previous storylines, however it is definitely strong enough to read on its own.

This is a well written, engaging read, which has a good mix of misunderstanding, miscommunication, jealousy and hot, passionate chemistry. I liked the way that Colleen's friends are at times defensive, but also do everything to ensure she gets her happiness. I loved the chemistry betwe

I was drawn by BDSM aspect in the synopsis of this book and since I haven't read any other books by this author or in this series I thought I'd give it a try.

I really enjoyed the Colleen and her 'world' so to speak. She is an excellent Domme who has perfected her craft. Chase on the other hand is as Vanilla as they get, but for his lost love he's willing to try anything. Their dynamic was excellent, I loved the way they played off each other and developed as a couple.

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
I'm addicted to this series. Club Inferno is such a hot, erotic, romantic story. It was amazing to finally see Colleen get hers! Chase was a hot head and I really wanted her to not be with him. The suspense, the action, the fun of this series, is well proven in this book. I feel you could easily read this series in whatever order you want, these books stand alone very well. But why would you want to miss out on an amazing series?

I really like this spicy erotica with the Master/Mistress and Sub play, the past that Chase and Colleen have even when it left on a misunderstanding 10 years prior that lead to marriage asap for Colleen to a elderly billionaire. Colleen has a hot/cold attitude towards Chase, she wants his body but not his views then she has past encounters prior to this book and knows the chemistry is still hot. But Colleen has control issues, I get that she has hotels that her husband gave her before he died an ...more

Fever is the third book in the Club Inferno series, but could be read as a stand alone. Chase is determined to get his back - all ten years apart has done is show him how much he still loves her. While a part of Colleen knows that she will always love Chase, she knows to protect her heart, as her needs has changed since they were together last. Working through past hurts, a jealous Dom, and the new dynamic to their relationship isn’t easy, but will it be too much for a lasting future?

The attraction is still there much to Colleen's dismay but, the big question about rekindling their relationship is - will it really work?

This is book three in the Club Inferno series and we get to know Colleen in this book. This woman is simply amazing, she has taken a few hits along the way but now she is top notch in the fashion world and of course, her side club, Club inferno, is not doing so bad either. Just like all characters in a book Colleen has a past and a piece of hers just walked through the club doors, Chase Fairwood. Colleen and Chase dated about ten years ago. Obviously, they broke up and went their separate ways. ...more

Colleen and Chase are the stars in this, the third book in the series. They have history together and as the story plays out, information is revealed that might shift your thinking about one or both of them. I've got to say that I wasn't a huge fan of his most of the book. The comments coming out of his mouth via the author were at times shocking and unbelievable. I wasn't sure if I wanted him to get back with Colleen. I did feel that this story was mostly one sided though as the author didn't r ...more

Can the Mistress convince the former defensive tackle to be her submissive????
Whoa…yes, that is the question! I’ve waited for this story since the beginning of the Club Inferno series. Colleen is the owner and Mistress at Club Inferno, which is the exotic, BDSM side to her Club where the vanilla side is Couture. Before she married, Alfie her late and very wealthy husband, she had dated Chase a defensive tackle football player. OK. BIG guy, right? Can you see him being her submissive? He!! NO. Af

Honestly, and typically, Female Domme's are not a trope that I will typically read. However, I'm completely in love with the Club Inferno series, so I was dying to read about the illustrious owner, Colleen. After first being introduced when her best friend needed to hide out in Book 1, I was completely hooked by this book. Even learning about her backstory in little tidbits in prior books of the series made me intrigued to learn more. To finally read her story, and see her get her HEA with the o ...more

Their romance was never going to be easy!
by sewsummore
Chase was Colleen's first love, she walked away from him when she caught his cheating on her and ten years later he was still trying to get her back. This was an emotional read, she never forgot him and never stopped loving him. For Chase, he knew that there would never be a woman who could take her place and it was up to him to show her just how much she meant to him. Their romance was never going to be smooth sailing, she was a strong woman

Then she winds up marrying Alfie who was an old gentlemen that she had met while working in Las Vegas. When he passed away he left her a very wealthy widow but she had always cared for Alfie.

If anyone has been reading this series then this is the book you have been waiting for finally we get Colleen story.

She is the owner of Couture the fashion resort but she is also the woman that owns and runs Club Inferno The BDSM club that she runs parallel to her resort. She has always been the one in charge but lately she has had a hankering for me she wants a relationship and a man of her own but who would be able to handle her and her business. Chase was the man that she loved ten years earl
I've enjoyed this series so far but to my mind this one wasn't as good as the first 2 books. I couldn't warm to the main characters. He adored her but struggled with insecurity issues and had a quick fire temper that wasn't attractive. She was a Domme but was half-hearted in her attempts to train him and this caused issues/misunderstandings. This story also had a number of smaller stories going on within it that really didn't get the attention or completion that they deserved, making it feel a b ...more

I'm glad I have stuck with this series as it seems to have developed and allowed us to see more of what makes Club Inferno tick. That's probably because this is the determined and sassy Colleen's story and she is the heart of the club. I enjoyed seeing more from her, I was a bit disappointed by Chase and felt he didn't really change much throughout but, they certainly make an interesting pairing! I think again it seems rushed in places and this again lets it down but overall, the story is much m ...more

This is the third book in the "Club Inferno" series but can be read as a standalone. Yes, there is a BDSM element but deep down this is a basically a "second-chance" love story. To what lengths is Chase willing to go to regain Colleen's love? The real question should be can Chase control is temper so he can keep Colleen's love? While I liked Colleen and her strength, Chase was a hard sell. Towards the end of the book, he finally "grew on me".

Colleen & Chase broke up 10 years ago. It was hard on them both but life went on. Now he is at her club wanting a second chance. She does not know if she wants that or if she could handle it.
Join them at Couture, Chase does not know about Inferno.
This is a different world for him and most of us, let's see what we can experience while the dance around each other.
We can also check in on some of our new friends from Longing and Heat.
