Book Review... Honey Trap - Julie Cohen
Honey Trap - Julie Cohen
Little Black Dress, 2008
From the back cover:
"Sophie Tennant is used to sticky situations… because Sophie used to be a private investigator, setting honey traps for husbands and giving wives grounds for divorce. But these days she's an aromatherapist – an aromatherapist who's going on tour with a rock band, baby! Which is all good, until she recognises the band's bassist, Dominick Steele: her first honey trap, and the man who taught her she has a dangerous attraction to bad boys. But her attraction's not half as lethal as the vengeful spouse who suddenly seems to be following her!"
Once again, Julie Cohen has blown me away with an awesome story!
What a start to a story, with the heroine being slap-bang in the middle of one of her honey traps. A honey trap that goes slightly awry causing her to rethink her entire life. And then to have her reunited with one of her past honey traps - one that she has never been able to forget - is simply brilliant.
A change for other Julie Cohen books, this one actually included the hero's POV, which worked perfectly; he is such a complex character, I couldn't get enough of him.
I loved every second of the rock and roll background described - it was done with relish and a little touch of cliché that made it really stand out.
The heroine is a wonderful character, really well developed with real issues and emotions. She changed and grew as the story progressed. Very satisfying to read.
The story flows easily, and is sexy and fun with a little bit of mystery thrown in for good measure. I couldn't put it down.
