25642185Title: Deathtrap

Author: LM Somerton

Publisher: Totally Bound

Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars

Length: Novel (~ 50K-100K)

Genre: BDSM, M/M Romance


A man without scars never had to fight for something he believed in.

A new relationship takes time and effort. A new relationship with Orlando de la Pena takes a whole lot more. As a Dom, Rogue knows what he wants, but Orlando refuses to fit neatly into the box labeled ‘submissive’. He’s feisty, demanding and far too pretty for his own good.

Orlando loves Rogue and he’s learning to love The Wyverns, but he hates being stuck out in the desert. Finding a niche in the world of bikes and fierce warriors is difficult, and Orlando’s impatience gets the better of him. He walks out into the desert and runs in to an antisocial diamondback.

Rogue has more than one problem to deal with. The Longhorns MC issues a challenge for territory. The Bellazi cartel is out for Wyvern blood. The Wyverns are under siege, and Rogue has to work out how to save not just Orlando, but all of them.

Reader Advisory: This books contains scenes of mild BDSM.

My View:

Deathtrap picks up where Mantrap left off and continues with the story of Orlando and Rogue.

The Wyverns are a tough group of bikers with a lot of enemies and although Orlando and Rogue are now a couple living a D/s relationship the cracks are beginning to show in their relationship.

Orlando is the one struggling the most. With it deemed unsafe for him to be out and about he is pretty much locked up in the compound the group live in. With no fresh air, no exercise and no direct daylight he is becoming fractious and even more bratty than usual. He is given tasks to keep him busy but they have a worse effect than ever – he feels like a slave to an ungrateful bunch of yobs.

Rogue comes across as brusque and uncaring and I found little to endear him to me at the start of the book. Only when Orlando defies another order and wanders off into the desert does he show his true colours and you can see that he not only cares about Orlando but that he can no longer imagine his life without him.

For me the story was a little fragmented. Whilst through his own stupidity Orlando ended up in danger there was also gang troubles that the men had to deal with which took Rogue away from Orlando at a crucial time.
