What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here.

I finished reading my blog friend Jennifer Hillier's book Creep last week.
Here is the synopsis from Barnes and Noble

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.


Thrillers and Horror are my favorite types of books. I have stated what a giant Stephen King fan I am numerous times. He happens to be one of Jennifer's favorites as well.
Creep had me on the edge of my seat right up to the very end. The character's are well developed and you feel an instant connection to the main character Sheila. Although I have to say her fiance Morris was my favorite character and I have a little crush on him. I worried for his safety sadly more then I worried about Sheila....not that I didn't like Sheila its just that I really liked Morris.
This book is a great beach read as it is fast paced and easy to get into. I don't suggest reading it if you are supposed to be watching your kids in the ocean or pool because.....well you won't be watching them because you will be thrust into the world of Dr. Tao, sex addiction, crazy ex-lovers and lovable Morris.
If you are a fan of Tess Gerritsen or Jeffrey Deaver then you will enjoy Jennifer Hillier's thriller Creep.
It's a thrilling thriller that will thrill you.
