Giveaway: The Booby Trap by Anne Browning Walker

Thanks to Babs Chandrasoma of PR by the Book I am giving away one copy of the Booby Trap.

Book Description:

Welcome to the Booby Trap, a seedy bar in Everett, Mass. where waitresses’ skirts are high, necklines are low, and customers show up for the eye candy.

This is the setting for Anne Browning Walker’s provocative novel, The Booby Trap (Pixel Entertainment, September 2012) in which Harvard Ph.D. candidate Bambi Benson finds the waitresses prime research for her degree in women’s studies, and embarks on a mission to go undercover and completely immerse herself in their world. 

All goes well until handsome local celebrity Trip Whitley enters the scene.

Hoping to ruffle the feathers of his well-connected family by dating someone ‘beneath’ him, Trip suggests that Bambi take on the role of his girlfriend, and receive compensation for her efforts. This fits in perfectly with the vision Bambi has for her dissertation: Trip will realize the error of his ways after she reveals her true identity, and teach him not to judge base on appearances.

Sounds like a great plan, but it’s about to be foiled: Bambi might actually be falling for Trip.

A fun, absorbing read, The Booby Trap was written with a particular audience in mind: Walker’s closest friends.

“I wanted my heroine to reflect the many smart, savvy, thoughtful, and driven women in my life,” Walker says. “Bambi is a modern-day heroine who values ambition and success in her own career, and also makes time for love.”

Important message to women with big Boobies from Teddy:

Before I get to the giveaway, I have a kind of funny story to tell you.  Babs contacted me the day before my surgery was scheduled.  When I saw her email, I couldn’t stop laughing and I knew I had to take part in this tour!

Some may think this is too much information but I want to share this with other women out there who are contemplating having the surgery I had.  I had breast reduction.  I thought that such a funny coincidence that this book of all books popped up in an email just the day before the surgery!  LOL!

Anyway, to other big breasted women out there, it has been one month since the surgery and I am pretty much recovered now.  I started developing breasts in fourth grade and they just never stopped growing.  You can imagine how much the other kids made fun of me.  I finally settled into a G cup in my early 20’s.

It was so hard to find a bra that fit.  Most companies make large cup bras for very overweight women.  I’m a 34 around and had to go to specialty shops to get fitted properly.  Bra’s for me were around $150 each.

That’s not why I had the surgery, but it certainly was in the back of my mind.  

I contemplated having the surgery for well over 20 years and finally did it.  I have been having neck, shoulder, and upper back problems since my early 20’s.  The was the deciding factor.  So far, I am really happy with the results although I would have liked to be even smaller but the surgeon wouldn’t do it.  Yes, there are scar but they will fade some over time and my bra covers them.

I certainly won’t tell you what to do but I suggest if you have been contemplating it, go see a surgeon just for a consultation.  Also, try to find other women who have done it.  My mother did it when I was young and I wouldn’t do it because of how hers turned out.  The techniques are totally different now and I had a friend who did it before me.  She was so happy with the results, that I used the same surgeon.  Also, if it is deemed a medical necessity, like in my case, your insurance will likely cover it.

Now for the giveaway!  This giveaway is open to the U.S. and Canada and ends on December 5, 2012.  Please use Rafflecopter to enter.
