I have been a massive fan of Bianca Sommerland's work for a while so bought this book the day it was released & spent every spare moment in the last three days reading it! I was not disappointed! I have loved all the Cobras books to date but as you would expect from any series I loved certain characters more than others. I was a bit 'meh' about Tyler, Chicklet & Laura before this book as I had not previously really engaged in any major way with any of them. That has all changed! Maybe they just always needed a Raif! Bianca made them come alive in this book & you could see them as real people, not perfect book characters. They messed up & made mistakes but also showed the power of love, communication, trust, forgiveness and being true to who you are.
I also love the fact that each book although focussing on one lead trio/quartet still manages to intertwine new stories & challenges for the previous lead characters. This book brings back more shenanigans for the trouble triplets & more complications for Seb, Jami & Luke and for Becky, Zach & Scott. It also hints at developments in future installments of this incredible series now I just have to learn some patience while I wait for the next book!
This book is a menage so if you aren't comfortable with any combination of MMFF don't read this book but if you can be open minded this is in it's simplest form just a series of love stories in all the different guises love can take! I would suggest reading this series in order though as each book builds on & refers to the previous books but each one does end with a HEA or HFN for the main characters and not a cliffhanger.

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."
The Dartmouth Cobras are the most fascinating team of hockey players with BDSM/Menage preferences that any author could create - and Ms Sommerland has an imagination which clearly knows no bounds. Each book in the series has concentrated on a particular relationship, but makes sure that we get our fix of the team as a whole and watch as life moves on for the others. This means that you will be best served reading them in order - in fact as I was reading I realised that a family tree structure might help me remember all the complex interplays!
This is a brilliant story about faithfulness, selfishness and mistakes - on the part of a significant number of the wider cast, and most definitely on the quartet of Tyler, Chicklet, Laura and Raif. There are moments that are written so we know that they are coming, and curl our toes in anticipation, and others which hit from offside and make one flinch. Either way, fabulous story, and can't wait for the next one. (It is also a story about love, self-discovery and family - but they are a given in DC's world!)

I've read all 6 books, best to read in order. And I have to say I have absolutely loved them. Love mason, the troublesome triplets, and Richter. Im not a big hockey fan but you can't help but love the game and the team in these books. Very naughty scenes but it doesn't spoil the stories at all. Very talented author and I will be looking for more books from Bianca in the future. Ps... maybe another book on whites story. Xx
