The Honey Trap by Mary Jayne Baker


Book Description:

The trap is set – but which one of them is the bait?

Journalist Angel Blackthorne is looking for her next big scoop. When her sleazy editor asks her to use her charms on super successful – and married – film director Sebastian Wilchester for a juicy exposé, Angel thinks what the hell? There’s a staff job on the horizon, and, let’s be honest, no one can make a cheater cheat if they don’t want to, right?

After the scandal breaks, Angel tries to put the story – and Seb – behind her, but fate seems to have other ideas. A near miss at a premiere after-party and a shared love of vintage film brings the honey closer to the trap.

But what happens when pretence leads to passion, and a ‘kiss and tell’ becomes something real?

My Thoughts:

The Honey Trap is quite a light hearted read that will certainly get the reader slightly hot under the collar with some fabulous raunchy scenes.

I have to admit I found the dashing Seb slightly too easy going to start with. Having been set up by a newspaper to make him look like a cheating scum bag of a husband, I was quite surprised how easy he found it to forgive the seductive Angel. All is not as it seems in Seb’s marriage though and as always the path of true love is never an easy one.

Angel is quite a little minx to say that she  hasn’t had a wealth of experience with boyfriends. She is a likeable character though who as with many of us, lets her heart rule her head. Working in journalism, I felt quite sorry for Angel, well in fact for everyone that worked under her heartless boss. It certainly isn’t a world I would want to be part of. Angel has a good friend in her best mate Em as well as her ex Leo who also works at the paper. I liked the direction of where Em and Leo’s relationship went especially as even though their story was more in the background, the personality of these two characters really shone through.

The parts where Seb and Angel basically get it on, wow, if I had been sat next to a window I’m positive it would have steamed over as they certainly got me all hot and bothered. How I wish I could have crawled into the novel and elbowed Angel out of the way and had my own wicked way with Seb. Believe me when you read it for yourself you will want to do the same.

The Honey Trap is a great book that allows you to escape from the real world for awhile and get lost in a world full of romance, friendship and sex. What more could a girl want?

My thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
