LM Somerton’s ‘Steel Trap’ caught me!

October 9, 2017

Will you be there when the trap is sprung?

Steel Trap

Secrets don’t stay hidden forever.

Hatchet has a thing for the enigmatic Mr Smith, Horatio Trap’s spokesman. He’d love to get his hands on the pretty man and show him how good it feels to take orders for once rather than hand them out. He’s had his eye on Smith for years and he’s running out of patience.

The Wyverns’ involvement in the drug trade is limited to stealing money from the cartels, they don’t want junk peddled on their turf. When Trap orders them to destroy a crack cocaine factory in Phoenix, they are happy to oblige. But Smith throws a spanner in the works by posing as a potential buyer, putting himself in mortal danger.

Hatchet and The Wyverns come up with a plan to fake Smith’s death, muscle in on the deal and convince the cartel to do business with them instead. But when Hatchet’s cover is blown he’s left to save a bunch of illegals, destroy the drugs and wipe the factory from the face of the planet. It’s all in a night’s work for The Wyverns—but there are still secrets to uncover and the mysterious Horatio Trap, and his mind games, can’t stay hidden forever.

Review word and pen

 

LM Somerton has always been one of my go-to authors. I haven’t found one of her books yet that hasn’t captivated me, and the Wyvern series is amazing.

Throughout this series, one of the couples I’ve been waiting to have a story has been Mr. Smith and Hatchet. The two of them are a lot of fun together, with Smith getting the better of Hatchet verbally more than once. And Hatch? Oh, my. All of the guys of the Wyverns are big, brawny, and oh so hot. What would you expect from a biker gang? And the men they love? Sarcastic, sweet, sassy, sexy, but most of all, worthy of the men who’ve chosen them.

This book deals with secrets. When we have them, how far will we go to keep them? When does a secret need to be pulled into the light? Like who is the man pulling the strings? And what connection does he have to the Wyverns in the first place?

Now, for those who haven’t read the series… The Wyverns are NOT good guys, but they ARE good men. They’re rough, have no problems with killing people, but they’re doing things for the right reasons. And this one is a dilly. Drugs are destroying lives, and the Wyverns need to eliminate the drugs being manufactured. The problem comes in when they find out that there are a lot more things in play than they’ve realized. What sacrifices will a man be willing to make in order to protect the weak? Will he be willing to sacrifice himself? Of course. What good man wouldn’t? What about his love? That’s where we find the measure of a man.

And the Wyverns always measure up.
