Breakaway: Bianca Sommerland


Add to Goodreads        Buy: Nook/Kindle

Against some attacks, the only hope is to come out and meet the play.

Last year, Jami Richter had no plans, no goals, no future. But that’s all changed. First step, make up for putting her father through hell by supporting the hockey team he manages and becoming an Ice Girl. But a photo shoot puts her right in the arms of Sebastian Ramos, a Dartmouth Cobra defenseman with a reputation for getting any woman—or, as the rumours imply, man—he desires. And the powerful dominant wants her…and Luke. Getting involved in Seb’s lifestyle gives her a new understanding of the game and the bonds between players. But can she handle being caught between two men who want her, while struggling with their attraction to one another?

Luke Carter’s life is about as messed up as his scarred face. His mother is sick. His girlfriend dumps him. When he goes to his favorite BDSM club to blow off some steam, his Dom status is turned upside down when a therapeutic beating puts him in a good place. He flatly denies being submissive--or, even worse, being attracted to another man. He wants Jami but can’t have her without getting involved with Sebastian. Can he overcome his own prejudices long enough to admit he wants them both?

Caught between Luke and Jami, Sebastian Ramos does everything in his power to fulfill their needs. His two new submissives willingly share their bodies, but not their secrets. When his own past comes back to haunt him, the fragile foundation of their relationship is ripped apart. As he works to salvage the damage done by doubt and insecurity, he discovers that Jami is hiding something dangerous. But it may already be too late.




I just finished this series (I gave whole series 4 stars) and let me say, wow! Talk about steamy and erotic. I hope to review the first two books soon, but since I just finished with Breakaway, I started with Sebastian, Luke and Jami's story first. While you can read this book as a stand-alone, I HIGHLY suggest you read them in order so you get a better understanding for the Dartmouth Cobra's and their loves.

Luke struggles with his attraction to Seb throughout the book. Their relationship was a mix of consuming sensual and emotional feelings, leaving you feeling as though you just got off a roller coaster ride. He was so unsure of himself, lost between what he thought was right and what he actually wanted. Carter hid behind his cockiness, denying his attraction and his need to submit under Sebastian. Luke perceives himself as Dominant and straight, he did not want to be in love with another man nor did he want to give up control. Therefore, like a typical hero, he ran and Sebastian chased.

Sebastian, however, knows exactly what he wants and that is Luke and Jami as his subs. It did not matter that he should stay away from them both despite the trouble that could ensue since he is a team mate and she is team manager's daughter. Did he listen, absolutely not! What type of Dom would he be if he gave into want they wanted instead of what they both needed. There is nothing sexier than a man going after what he wants and doing whatever it takes to make it yours. I for one am glad he decided to pursue  Luke. Luke is fun and cute but when you mix Sebastian's sensitivity with his sensuality and power that flows off the pages; you have a panty dropper alpha male right in front of you, ladies! 

Um, Luke and Seb! Sigh. So damn HOT! The push and pull between these two Doms just fascinated me; if they were in a scene together, I was devouring the words. This book was wicked (in a good way) on so many levels. Oh my gosh, the emotional and sexually intense filled chemistry between Sebastian Ramos and Luke Carter was off the charts HOT AS HELL!

I know a lot of people really liked Jami; but honestly, Jami just did not work for me as a heroine, at all. Not with Luke and not with Sebastian. I disliked her with a passion. In the other books, Silver and Oriana showed strong love for all their men. They did not leave you with any doubt that there was no true favorite in their ménages, those two chicks could not live without any of their life partners. Nor, did they try to act as though they could easily replace them. However, in this one, I felt nothing from Jami towards Luke, other than friendship. I felt bad for Luke at times because I got the impression from her that Luke was nowhere near as important as Sebastian and was easily replaceable.  After a while, I really got annoyed with everything always being Luke's fault. I definitely felt her love and devotion towards Sebastian, but this was supposed to be a ménage.

Bianca's writing style totally just works for me. It is down and dirty. She creates a fun camaraderie and chemistry between all the characters that allow the secondary characters to also be an essential part of the story. Her hockey team of dominant men just captivates me, whether they are on the ice, at the club, or lounging around at home. Once I start, I am turning the pages as quickly as I can, and usually end up staying up most of the night to finish.

On a side note, one of my favorite Doms in the series is Sloan Callahan. I adore that we got to see bits and pieces of him in Breakaway (I hope to do a review on his book soon). I am nervous however because, I have a feeling Bianca has some twist up her sleeve when it comes to my favorite captain in book four, if the cliffhanger she left us with is any indication. There is definitely trouble in paradise and it is making me antsy and anxious to get my hands on it. I need to know Sloan will be ok.

Tell you about me? Hmm, well there's not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I'm not writing—which isn't often—I'm usually watching a game or a car show while working on promo. Going out with my kids is my only down time. I get to clear my head and forget everything.
 

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I'd get extra cookies if I was quiet for awhile—that's how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.
 
I hope one day to prove her right.
