Creep by Jennifer Hillier

Rating: DNF

Summary on Goodreads.

"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..." [+ More].

So Ethan, 23, becomes obsessed with his professor, Dr. Sheila Tao (16 years older) and if he can have her nobody can. Well, yes, we older women usually have that effect on younger men (lol).

What I did not buy in this book is that this professor is a doctor, a psychologist, yet she allowed Ethan to record them having sex. Seriously? Even I know better. But hey! The book was published in 2011 so maybe that is why such thing would fly.

The second turn off was that there is a website, which publishes "outrageous gossip and nasty comments about all things involving the university" yet it hasn't been shout down? No, the existence of this site is no secret, even Dr. Sheila Tao herself clicks on the site to see what's going on. I need to return this book and read something more believable.
