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 police—now 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 furious—not 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.

I liked this story and the way the characters meet in the BDSM world. I love that Orlando is a snarky little sub who is just begging for a dom that can handle him. And boy does Rogue handle him.
However, I found that once they left the club, I wasn’t as interested. A lot of the plot line felt rushed and like things were moving along without taking me with them. Not a lot of information about what was happening or why.
The sex was hot. The BDSM worked great, but I think the plot was left a bit unexplored and the characters undeveloped.
However, that being said, I found it quite easy to read as the author’s style of writing was so clean and well done that I was through the book before I realized it only to think I’d missed something so I would most definitely keep reading the series to see where their story takes us.
