Giveaway: CREEP by Jennifer Hillier

BOOK DESCRIPTION:  Pulsing with the dark obsession of Radiohead’s song “Creep,” this taut thriller—Jennifer Hillier’s superb debut—rockets from its seductive opening to a heartpounding climax not easily forgotten. 

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. 

Ethan has plans for Sheila, plans that involve posting a sex video that would surely get her fired and destroy her prestigious career. Plans to make her pay for rejecting him. And as she attempts to counter his every threatening move without her colleagues or her fiancĂ© discovering her most intimate secrets, a shattering crime rocks Puget Sound State University: a female student, a star athlete, is found stabbed to death. Someone is raising the stakes of violence, sex, and blackmail . . . and before she knows it, Sheila is caught in a terrifying cat-and-mouse game with the lover she couldn’t resist—who is now the monster who won’t let her go.

Holy smokes, going to check out your scariest read.

The first really scary book I read was The Exorcist. I was a teenager & then I went to see it at the movies when it came out too! It turned me into a lifelong fan or creepy books!

Windy City by Hugh Holton. Was the last really creepy book I read.
It had the right amount of creepy to keep you engaged, but not so much you stopped reading. lnb1191(at)aol(dot)com

"The Road" by Cormac McCarthy is the scariest ever.

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. My husband was working the night shift and I was laying on the sofa reading - too scared to move, too scared to stop reading and scaring myself silly.

Have a giveaway on my blog. Hope you will enter:

I've read some pretty scary books . . . I think the scariest might be true life stuff. As for fiction, probably something by Stephen King like Firestarter (I still have trouble using the garbage disposal) or Pet Semetery. That was just creepy!

I was terrified of Tick Tock by Dean Koontz when I first read it. I should go back and reread it now 10+ years later and see if it still seems scary at all.
