Review: Honeytrap by Crystal Green


Have you ever had a boyfriend cheat on you? Did you call him out on it, even if he's the hometown hero? I did and managed to get my heart broken in the process...

Now, back home in Aidan Falls for the summer, all I want to do is keep my head down until next semester starts—a hard prospect when my ex, his ex, and the whole damn town can’t seem to let go of the past.

And that’s not even mentioning Micah Wyatt, the ludicrously hot new guy who seems to know all about my past, and he isn’t shy about wanting to trap me in a bet he's made to get the town pariah—aka me—under the sheets.

I know Micah is bad news, but that doesn’t make him any easier to resist. After all, I’ve had a taste of bad before, and I’m not sure I want to go back to being the good girl…

Publication Date: February 17, 2015
This was a strange little book for me. I liked the premise, but I just didn’t care for the characters. Although I kept reading to the end, I never felt a connection with anyone in the story. The heroine seemed too weak-willed and the hero came off as a jerk. I love bad boy love interests, but I couldn’t decide if I liked Micah or not. He was too hot and cold and it made me doubt his feelings were ever genuine. Plus, I felt like Shelby could be a bit of a doormat with him. However, I liked the author’s writing style and I did like the subplot about Shelby being bullied. I felt like the bullying portions of the novel were probably the most realistic and heart wrenching for me. The conclusion wrapped everything up nicely and the book can be read as a standalone.

Rating: 3/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy for review!


  1. You know, I find if I can connect with just one character, I end up liking a story a LOT more. Bad boys have to have some redeeming quality or I end up hating them (which isn't generally the idea). Fine and difficult line to walk, IMO. Excellent review. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Good to hear you enjoyed the premise but sad to hear characters weren't all they could be
