"The Booby Trap" by Anne Browning Walker

My Book Summary : Bambi has always been a looker. It is hard not to be when you are blonde and built like a pin-up. However, now at the age of 27-years-old she's using her looks to her own advantage by working at The Booby Trap, a Hooters knockoff type of sports bar. Bambi plans to use the first-hand knowledge she gains at the bar and that of her co-workers to put together her dissertation for her Ph.D. she's getting through Harvard on woman's studies.

Nevertheless, she doesn't expect the complication of Trip Whitley, the rich and handsome local celebrity, to come into her life...

While at a bachelor party for his best friend at The Booby Trap, Trip meets Bambi. He is in a foul mood because he father has just informed him that more of his personal life is going to be taken over by the family business and he takes it out on Bambi. Therefore, their meeting was definitely NOT a love at first sight connection. Yet he soon believes Bambi would be the perfect person to play the role of his girlfriend, since he assumes her to be just a sexy airhead, as a way to get back at his father who put him in this position. With that decision made Trip proposes his idea to Bambi, offers to pay her to be his girlfriend, and she accepts but has plans of her own to twist the tables on Trip. However, once they get closer and get to know each other better will their feelings grow into something more or will Bambi still go through with her scheme? If Bambi follows through with her plans, will she be blowing a good thing or will she be performing a well deserved revenge?

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars!!! Showing off a little more then you, want too might end up helping out in the long run. Join Trip and Bambi as they discover how a misconception of who you are can really change your life...sometimes all for the better!

About the Characters:
• Bambi: Hates her name. Not close to her mother. Is a Harvard Ph.D. candidate. Beautiful with a pin-up body. Very smart. Would like to complete her dissertation. Her main goal is to go to the Annual Women's Studies Conference located in London, England that year.

• Trip: Perpetual bachelor who has had his heart stomped on before. Is informed that he needs to get into a committed relationship to improve the company's image. Chooses Bambi as the one to "help" his image, yet that decision backfires in more ways than one. Doesn't like Elizabeth.

• Trip's parents: Successful. Snobbish. Loves their son.

• Elizabeth: From the company's marketing firm. Hopes to pull one over on Trip without hurting the company's image.

• Connie: Trip's ex-girlfriend whom he dated in high school. Still has a thing for Trip.

• Pat: Trip's best friend, who helps guide him throughout the novel.

Together Trip and Bambi made an unstoppable duo that I could not get enough of!! I just wish there was more to the novel from where did they go from the ending to what happened with Trip's parents with Bambi and Connie?? Stupid little questions that never get answered, but in most ways they don't need too. This novel is a definite keeper!

I recommend it to anyone who enjoys woman's romantic fiction!!

Book Teaser(s) :
"How'd you know my name? And why don't I know yours?"
"Why, of course I know you," the waitress batted her eyes. If Trip didn't know better, he'd think she was playing him. "You're Trip Whitley, from all those ads. And even cuter in person."
"But what's your name?"
"Silly, you must know what it is. It's been right here all night." She tapped her name tag. "Bambi."
"Oh," Trip snorted. Now he knew he was being played. ~ within Chapter 2
"It's going to be fine, right?" she asked once her friend picked up. "He's cooled down some, right?"
"Some," Elizabeth didn't seem entirely convinced, which wreaked havoc on Bambi's nerves.
"Oh God."
"Don't worry." Bambi heard Elizabeth's tone change from one of worry to her typical confidence. "It will be great."
Bambi heard the door buzz. "That's him. I gotta go. Wish me luck."
"Good luck," Elizabeth said. ~ within Chapter 11
