Not all cages have bars.

The Wyverns Motorcycle Club has a reputation as fierce as its dragon emblem. Its enigmatic leader, Rogue Hellaby, has a police file so thick you could prop up a table with it. The qualifications for membership are a reckless disregard for authority and the attitude of a spitting cobra. But The Wyverns MC is not quite what it seems. All the riders have dubious histories in the military or the policeŚnow they just serve and protect their own interests and those of Horatio Trap, the manipulative bastard who recruited them.

When Rogue receives an instruction to kidnap and hold hostage the son of a powerful drug lord, he doesn't bat an eyelid. But Rogue has never had to deal with a captive like Orlando de la Pena. Orlando is furiousŚnot because he's being held prisoner, but because he's prevented from partying at his favorite BDSM club. Rogue discovers that the only way to deal with Orlando is to become the Dom he so obviously needs. But Orlando's father wants him back, and The Wyverns must face a battle that could cost them their lives.

Not all motorcycle clubs are created the same way. In L.M. Somerton's MANTRAP, the Wyverns Motorcycle Club gets caught up in a battle for dominance with its leader at the forefront.

The premise for the story focuses on an order for the MC to kidnap Orlando de la Pena, the son of a drug lord. However, when Rogue Hellaby, the Wyverns Club leader, encounters Orlando, all of his Dom instincts kick in. Can the two find common ground despite a rocky start?

While I found the m/m action to be particularly spicy, the storyline wasn't quite as developed as it could have been. It's a fairly short read, which leaves very little room for a lot of detail.

From a BDSM standpoint, it appeared that the author was knowledgeable and depicted the lifestyle realistically within the confines of the storyline.

I wasn't able to get a solid connection with any of the characters. Although I love MC stories, this is one that didn't quite meet my expectations. The MC language was there, but it's only an appetizer to what could have been a full course meal.
