The Booby Trap by Anne Browning Walker

Review of The Booby Trap by Anne Browning Walker

5 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: "Welcome to The Booby Trap, a seedy bar where waitresses' skirts are high, necklines are low and customers show up for the eye candy.

When brainy, beautiful, Harvard Ph.D. candidate Bambi Benson wants to study the women of the  Booby Trap for her dissertation, she goes undercover and joins them. All is going well for Bambi until handsome local celebrity Trip Whitley enters the scene.

Hoping to shock his high-society family by dating a bimbo, Trip offers to pay Bambi to pretend to be his girlfriend. She accepts his offer and bides her time, waiting for the right moment to reveal her true identity and teach Trip not to judge based on appearances.

After a series of dates carefully orchestrated for their publicity value, Bambi's trap is set. But there's one problem: the predator might have fallen in love with her prey."

If there is one word to describe The Booby Trap by Anne Browning Walker it is innovative.  Don't get me the wrong, the characters in this story are amazing with wit, humor, and vulnerability but what really makes this story what is it is the concept while it is still a romance book this romance is based on a partnership.  The Booby Trap displays an equally that the majority of romance books lacks.  In this story we get to see how the main characters are balanced and while there is still romance to the story, it is romance that is coming from both sides (not just one sided).  Partnership is what makes this romance book stand apart from others which is why I give The Booby Trap by Anne Browning Walker 5 smirks. Romance readers everywhere should indulge in this book because of how uniquely different it is from the rest of romance books.
