Overview

Defensive Zone (The Dartmouth Cobras, #2) by Bianca Sommerland

Silver Delgado has gained control of The Dartmouth Cobras—and lost control of her life.

Hockey might be the family business, but it's never interested Silver. Until her father's health decline thrusts responsibility for the team he owns straight into her hands. Now she has to find a way to get the team more fans, and establish herself as the new owner. Which means standing up to Dean Richter, the general manager and the advisor her father has forced on her. The fact that their 'business relationship' started with her over his lap at his BDSM club shouldn't be too much of a problem. Their hot one night stand meant nothing! But how can she earn his respect when he sees her as submissive? Can they separate work and the lifestyle she's curious to explore?

Balancing her new life away from Hollywood, living among people who see her as the selfish Delgado princess, has her feeling lost and alone until Landon Bower, the Cobras new Goalie slips into her life and becomes her best—and only—friend. The time they spend together makes everything else bearable, but before long his eyes meet hers with more than friendship, reflecting what she feels. Which could ruin everything.

Two Dominant men who see past her pretty mask and the shallow image she portrayed to the flashing cameras. A gentle attack from both sides that she can't hope to block unless she learns how to play.

But she's getting the hang of the game.

About the Author

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.

My work tends to lean towards the dark side. My most popular book, Deadly Captive, tends to trigger extreme reactions in people and I often advise that if you're going to read my work, start with one of my other books and ease your way up to that…if you think you can deal with the subject matter. Most reviews for the book mention (quote from Dark Diva Reviews-Read full review here: http://www.darkdivasreviews.com/?p=5508 ) 'I just have to start by saying that this book is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended.' And (quote from Kinky Book Reviews-Read full review here: http://kinkybookreviews.com/review-deadly-captive-by-bianca-sommerland/ ) 'If you are not prepared for this book, do NOT read it.' Seriously, read the excerpts and consider the warnings.

I also write a lot of ménage. My first published book, Rosemary Entwined, features Rosemary and her nest of 7 men. I wanted to prove that a story involving that many men focused on one woman could be something more than a gangbang. It's my sweetest and most romantic story to date. I've actually written a Christmas story about their first Christmas together which will be available for free within the next few days if you'd like a nice intro.

To find out more about me, either swing by my website: www.im-no-angel.com or simply ask here! I'll try to answer all the questions I can while I'm here, but you can always email me: biancasommerland (at) gmail (dot) com

I enjoyed this book, but it needs a really, really good edit! Words were missing from sentences, extra words were added to sentences, and at least once a word was spelled correctly, but was the wrong spelling for it's intended meaning. I can overlook a few editorial mistakes because everyone is human and even NY published books miss stuff. But this was beyond ridiculous. It's why I gave the book 3 stars instead of 4.

Silver is an ex Hollywood drama queen and daddys girl. Shes been given a hockey team and decides to prove she can be professional and turn things around for the team. She doesnt expect to enjoy playing submissive to the teams GM. But Dean wont stop at just letting her play a scene. She also builds a strong relationship to the teams top goalie, who also happens to be a Top. Complications arise when Silver asserts herself in the workplace and the bedroom. This is book two of the series and, while it does not have to be read in succession, book one was preferred. This one had the same caliber of character formation and depth of plot, but certain chapters seemed to drag along and the number of grammar errors could not be overlooked. The book also contains subject matter that is for adults only, including, but not limited to M/M interaction, M/F/M interaction, and heavier BDSM scenes than what is included in mainstream BDSM erotica. Recommendation: Read it because you enjoyed the first book, because you fantasize about hockey players, or because you enjoy heavier erotica.

The second book in the Dartmouth Cobras series, this book focused mostly on Silver. She’s the youngest daughter of the Cobras manager and she takes over managing the team when her father becomes too ill to do so. With no real hockey knowledge this is quite a task for Silver but she’s up for the challenge if it means that her father will be proud of her. When the book begins we see Silver as “Little Miss Spoiled” but we come to realize that there is a lot more to her. She fights her own demons in this book as well and really grows as a person all the while struggling to find the love and acceptance we all want. This book really shows that we should never judge someone just by looking at them… we are all fighting battles within ourselves.

DEFENSIVE ZONE (Dartmouth Cobras, #2) by Bianca Sommerland *** This title was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for an HONEST review. *** Silver Delgado is the younger daughter of the Cobra's owner & Oriana's sister. She left for Hollywood to become an actress and model but after her father suffers a severe heart attack,  he names HER the new acting owner. Somehow, she has to shed her spoiled, rich, snobby princess persona and become the person that the team and staff can respect. Dean Richter is the General Manager of the Cobra's and co-owner of a kink club down the street from the arena. At Tim's insistence and Dean's utter dismay, Blades & Ice is hosting Oriana's wedding,  collaring & committing  ceremony to Max, Dominik & Sloan. Since Dean's bitter divorce, he's not been interested in relationships, but may make an exception for the hot sub that just walked through his doors. Landon Bower has just been signed on as the starting goalkeeper for the Cobras. He's a Dom with an intriguing specialty. He also takes notice of Silver upon her arrival to the ceremony, not knowing who she is at first.  Silver arrives at Blades & Ice with her gay boyfriends but when she breaks the code of conduct during Oriana & Sloan's part of the ceremony, Asher does not claim her as HIS sub. Dean cannot allow the infraction to go in his club so he's only happy to step in and teach this feisty little sub a lesson in manners. After her punishment is served, Landon steps in to comfort her. He vows his friendship to her, taking what he can get, in hopes of getting more later.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Silver is an interesting character  & it's hard to decide if you like her or not. She's naive in several things, but she's far from innocent. She's an assertive sub. She's insecure, but bossy.  She's drawl to the primal intensity that is Dean, but equally pulled to Landon's calming strength. She does not understand her sister's relationship with the three men & really takes issues with Sloan, causing a rift between the two siblings. Dean and Landon are both strong characters. Both have a troubled past but manage to be top notch in their respective jobs as well as in-control Doms. Their chemistry with Silver is good. I enjoyed the interactions. Carter is a fun secondary character and Demyan is interesting. I sense a deeper story for both. The minute the old man had his heart attack towards the end of book 1, I had hoped he'd keel over. He's a very detestable man, made even moreso in this installment of the series.  The plot was decent, but I found myself getting easily distracted. I think this was due to my lack of connection to Silver for the first half of the book. The second half of the book, she is more tolerable as the plot starts taking a few twists that are unexpected & things liven up a bit here and there. There are a few minor conflicts that are more pacified than resolved. The epilogue really did not provide any closure, but rather left several things hanging. I will assume that is to leave an opening for book 3, BREAKAWAY. Overall, not bad. An enjoyable read. Lead Male(s): 4.5 Lead Female: 3 Secondary Characters: 4 Chemistry: 4 Dialogue/Interaction: 4  Plot: 4 Conflict & Resolve: 3 Predictability: 5 HOT factor: 4 Flow/Ease: 3.5  ------------------ Overall: 3.9 / 5.0

This is an erotic romance that like the characters will have you testing boundaries.  Silver Delgado is a gorgeous young woman with serious Daddy issues (as in Daddy is complete and total jerk which we learned in Game Misconduct, Dartmouth Cobras #1).  When her father takes ill he puts Silver in charge of the Dartmouth Cobras hockey team.  Silver, unlike her sister Oriana, knows nothing about hockey.  Silver is going to need a lot of help.  That help comes in the form of two deliciously dominant men, Dean Richter the Cobra’s GM and the Cobra’s new goalie Landon Bower.  These men have issues of their own but they may find that each has something to offer that may make life just a little bit better. As I said earlier this book, like the first one, will push boundaries and that isn’t a bad thing.  I’ll admit that I skipped over a scene which pushed a hot button for me but it didn’t keep me from really enjoying this book.  Bottom line this is a scorching hot book filled with a good story, smoking hot atheletes, and a whole lot of sex.

Bianca Sommerland scores again with Defensive Zone, writing another page-turning erotic romance. Sommerland’s female protagonist, Silver Delgado, lacks confidence as she takes over the Dartmouth Cobras at the beginning of the story. Dean Richter, General Manager of the Cobras and a Dom, sees past the spoiled little rich girl façade to the young woman ready to come into her own. Their chemistry ignites instantly as Dean’s strength and experience help Silver find her way at work and in the bedroom. Silver, through her relationships with Dean and Landon Bower, begins to learn that she is smarter and stronger than she thought she was. Silver’s emotional growth throughout the story had me glued to my e-reader. Meanwhile, Sommerland beautifully advances the friendship between Silver and Landon. It’s refreshing to see their sweet, just friends relationship take flight and grow without sex. When they do finally cross the line from just friends to lovers, their chemistry is breathtaking. With the triad now complete, the intimate BDSM scenes are unique, intense, and exciting for the reader. The various punishment scenes allow an inexperienced Silver to learn that when she does something wrong she’ll be forgiven after she accepts her discipline. Sommerland consummately creates a unique ménage relationship that is completely different from the foursome in the first novel in this series. The hockey scenes are a joy to read. Even if you aren’t a huge hockey fan, you will be able to follow along without confusion. With engaging characters, well-executed hockey scenes, and toe-curling intimacy, Sommerland delivers an emotionally fitting conclusion while leaving you craving the next novel in the series. I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

This author takes you on a journey discovering what it's like to give into your deepest desires. Love, lust and trust are not as cleanly laid out as some may want but sometimes the darker sides of our natures will get us something infinitly more precious.
