Not all fights are one on one. In a team, no man should stand alone.
‘You can’t keep me.’
Shawn ‘Easy’ Pischlar has given his speech so often, it should be written on the white board in the Dartmouth Cobra’s locker room. Too many of his own teammates have heard the words.
And the games he’s played are finally catching up to him.
To hang on to his freedom, Shawn gave up on ever having someone to call his own. A young woman who expects nothing from him slips into his life and has him ready to toss the rulebook. While the man he loves tempts him to burn it.
Keeping them both would be easy, only…caring about them isn’t.
Because when he lets himself care, he remembers why he wrote the rules in the first place. Every lover, from the casual, to those who steal a piece of his heart, shouldn’t expect more than pleasure. More than passion.
Playing the game, on and off the ice, is his whole world. One he isn’t ready to change.
Except, life doesn’t stop for the game. And when old scars are ripped open, and he’s left bloody and beaten, the rules won’t help him put the pieces of his life back together.
To win this fight, he’ll have to break each and every one.
I’m in love with Bianca Sommerland’s Cobras and this is without a doubt the author’s best book to date as far as writing goes.. This was a solid 5 star book for me.
“Don’t fall in love with me, Bruiser. I’ll break your heart.”
Pischlar, White and Justina were fantastic. To see White come to terms with his personality was an inspiration… Justina being able to find herself without a trace of self doubt is a journey every girl should experience… To accept one self is one of the the hardest thing for any girl to do but having a Shawn “Easy” Pischlar would making it easier (pun intended) cause that man is extraordinary… He has some trauma in his life so he lives his life based on “the speech” but push goes to shove, he doesn’t need be be afraid to be kept or loved… Justina being who she is, and accepting of him is what he needed the most…
One of the best things about the Cobras are without a doubt the trouble triplets. Not only are they comic relief but to see their interactions with the other players and see them grow up is fantastic. This book should get 3 extra stars just for Luke Carter, Tyler Vanek and Scott Demayan!
“Don’t tell me I can’t keep you. Let me prove that I can.”
Line brawl was different in the set up than most of the other cobra stories we readers have come to love… There’s insights and progress in the rest of the relationships but they don’t take up as much as “usual” in this +400 pages long book… But it worked ❤️
It should be noted that this book is the 8th book in the Dartmouth Cobra series by Bianca Sommerland and they are best read in order to get the full experience
