Series: The Dartmouth Cobras #3
If there is one thing that I can tell you about this series is that there’s a lot of kinky f*ckery and it’s hot as hell!!! I was actually very excited about the two male characters in this book, both sexy and kinky hockey players. I can’t say the same about the heroine.We first met Jami as Richter’s daughter in the previous book. Very troubled, not accepting of his father’s life and choices, and to put it simply…a rebel. Although for most of this book I thought she was doing a lot better, incredibly so, I find that her HEA would’ve benefited from being written later in the series. Why? Because I still found her a bit immature and whiny at times and I think that’s because of her age and that she just came out of what happened to her in the previous book.
That being said, I would’ve gladly taken her place! She has great chemistry with both Luke and Sebastian individually. I always love when authors take their time to develop the individual relationships in a permanent menage relationship. And Ms. Sommerland always delivers on that! And just how they each have a relationship with Jami, which is the reason they all come together, there is also a beautiful and deep relationship between Luke and Sebastian. I was left wondering if Sebastian’s connection to Luke wasn’t too strong and overpowering of his love for Jami. But I guess the balance was there most of the time.
Sebastian is all tall, dark and Dom. This is THE man that will leave you biting your lip and panting for more. His presence is commanding but he’s also very caring of those he loves and others that have gone through what he has.
Luke was the lost soul in this story, which made me sad because I never thought that’s where his character would fall to. I’ve always seen him as the happy and good humored one of the bunch. I have to admit when he first did his scene with Chicklet I almost wanted to see them explore that relationship because it was pretty hot. Luke is a Dom but he also needs to give up control. Sebastian fit into that perfectly and it was very real to see them, especially Luke, struggle with what his mind and body where saying.
Then there’s the rest of the crew! Silver is pregnant and even gives birth in this book and that was just great to see. Sloan is also going through stuff in his personal life and even his relationship, so some of their issues come back to be dealt with. I love to see the new and old always woven in the story because we want to know what’s going on in their lives.
Overall, this BDSM book is not for the faint of heart. It’ll make you tingle in ways you didn’t think were possible! I can’t wait for the next installment about the kinkiest hockey team EVER!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
