The Booby Trap was written with a particular audience in mind: Walker’s closest friends.

About the book:
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 where 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.
