Creep by Jennifer Hillier + Giveaway

If he can’t have her . . .

Dr. Sheila Tao is a professor of psychology. An expert in human behavior. And when she began an affair with sexy, charming graduate student Ethan Wolfe, she knew she was playing with fire. Consumed by lust when they were together, riddled with guilt when they weren’t, she knows the three-month fling with her teaching assistant has to end. After all, she’s finally engaged to a kind and loving investment banker who adores her, and she’s taking control of her life. But when she attempts to end the affair, Ethan Wolfe won’t let her walk away.

. . . no one else can.

Dr. Sheila Tao is a respected and loved professor of psychology who loves her job.  When she catches her husband of ten years having an affair with his scrub nurse, she decides to start fresh.  But her emotions are too raw and her life spirals out of control.  She becomes addicted to sex, with anyone, anywhere.  When she wakes up after blacking out one morning, she realizes she has a problem and goes for help.  It's a long process, but she's doing better, especially with the help of her therapist.

But she can't resist the charm of Ethan Wolfe, one of her students and her TA.  They are having a whirlwind of an affair, but when the man Sheila has been dating for a year, Morris, asks her to marry him, she knows she has to call it quits with Ethan.

However, Ethan doesn't like being disposed of and doesn't see what Sheila loves about Morris, a rich man who is several pounds overweight.  He decides to take control of the situation.  Sheila is worried he'll post the sex tape they made and ruin her career.  But worse, she's worried Morris will find out she was cheating on him.  

When a body of one of her students washes up, murdered, Sheila is shaken.  But then to find herself being stalked by Ethan, she brazens it out and decides to call his bluff.  A pawn in his game, she has no idea she has just put her life on the line, much to Ethan's sociopath glee.

A page-turning, nail-biting thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat, Creep has it all.  Police procedural, horrific crime scenes, creative and diverse characters, romance and dark secrets.  With a surprise ending, readers will be clamoring for the next in the series, Freak, to see how it all pans out.  I can't wait to read more from this riveting and thrilling writer!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
