Publisher's Summary

Dr. Sheila Tao is a professor of psychology, an expert in human behavior with her own hidden past. But she's not the only one keeping secrets. When Sheila began an affair with her sexy graduate assistant Ethan Wolfe, she knew she was playing with fire. Consumed by lust when they were together, she was riddled with guilt when they were apart. Now she's finally engaged to a good man, and it's time to end the dangerous liaison. But Ethan has something different in mind. He intends to make her pay for rejecting him.

As Sheila attempts to counter Ethan's increasingly threatening moves, he schemes to reveal her darkest, most intimate secrets by destroying her prestigious career...and then her. Caught in a terrifying cat-and-mouse game, Sheila must fight for her life and free herself from the ex-lover whom she couldn't resist - who is now the manipulative monster who won't let her go.

The narrator makes all the difference. Unfortunately, this one needed a different narrator!

This is an interesting plot and could have been a really good listen, but something just never clicked. There was basically ZERO chemistry between the protagonist and her fiancé. He was never described as anyone who you would feel attraction for. He was called “big” & “fat” & “old” throughout the book. While I appreciate the inclusion of a “plus sized” live interest, his size was used as a playground tease instead of a strong protector. The lack of chemistry may have been the narration, which made him sound like a (bad) character from “Dallas” (the TV show). There was nothing about his character that made me believe Sheila would fall for him. Perhaps reading this book would have been better.

Other narration issues include the narrator sounding like she had a mouth full of saliva.

Overall, good story, but not a great listening experience!

Finally a book worth the credit

It’s not the great American novel but the author has talent. There are enough twist and turns to make a good mystery. I thought at first few chapters it was just going to be a routine cheater and maybe murder story but then it surprises. I recommend this book and am going to listen to the next in this new series. The second is called “ Freak.”

Hard to listen to

Like the story, but the narrator is horrible. Is she drunk, slurring words? It's really hard to listen to!

Creep

I really like this book right up until the end. I felt like part of the suspense was the detail and anticipation but the end was garbled and rushed. I felt like the killer wasn’t in the book enough and even tough sometimes that works, you have to give a little. Hopefully the sequel evens things out. The narration was so bad that I ended up buying the paperback and finishing it that way. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have finished the book. I even googled the narrators name to see if it was really a computer software voice reader opposed to a real person. I hope it’s a different narrator on Freak or I may just forget the whole thing. The book wasn’t as interesting and the narration was bad and that’s sayin something since I gave the story a 4.

over all good

This book didn't move as quickly as her book "The Butcher" did. The narrator slurs her words a lot and sometimes sounds like she has been drinking and/or has a dental implant. Over all the story line is good. Going to listen to book two now and I am hoping it's a different narrator.

Good definitely worth a listen.

Imagantive storyline, with solid plot twists . The narrator did a wonderful job with both pacing and building tension (she seemed to do well with all the character roles while being true to the author's original concept. what I mean by that is that I have frequently fond that narrators interpret characters (especially female characters) that I would have viewed as strong, so that they sound like paranoid or weak-willed individuals who are waiting for a man to rescue them from their miserable life; and I just HATE it when that happens! :) Now for the one thing that irritated me abt the narrator - her voice uh... just went really weird wgen playing the main character under stress; i cant put my finger on it but it is like she drops vowels or something, and it makes the character sound as though severe stress either gives her a speech impedimen or turns her into a half-wit, and then when things calm down she snaps back to normal! VERY ODD especially when u consider the amazing job she does of narration regardless of the character's gender. I purchased the author's next book (Freak) immediately after writing this review and lfinished it in one sitting (i am back editing original review). I enjoy the author's character development and interaction between characters along with plot crescendo & diminuendo development - I feel that as she continues writing she will rapidly become VERY good (following the same well-worn path as one my fav authors of this genre, Harlan Coben).
