A teacher is supposed to impart a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge. It’s a bit different with Ms. Lori Settles. All the kids are talking about how hot she is–and she is especially interested in Ryan Piccoli. When she starts giving Ryan extra attention, he’s feeling more than happy–at first. He’s used to being the class clown, but really he’s a loner. One day after school, the friendship with Lori Settles goes farther than he ever expected. She’s his teacher. She’s at least twice his age. Intimacy with a teacher is wrong, yet it feels so good in every way. Soon, Lori is making demands and Ryan begins to feel overwhelmed, but Ryan refuses to even admit anything is going on. Something immoral is going on and before too long the choices made will change lives forever.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 11, 2008 – McDaniel (Don't Die, My Love) forsakes her typical weeper for a cautionary tale about a high school freshman seduced by his history teacher. On the first day of class, Ryan locks eyes with the stiletto-wearing, cleavage-baring Ms. Settles ( I feel heat ) and watches her bend over a desk drawer ( The sweaterdress hugs her backside, and I want to do the same ). Describing the same encounter, the teacher says, I stare at him and the room seems to recede. A halo of light encircles him and suddenly, I know... he'll be the One. The two become sexually involved and mutually obsessed, arousing the suspicions (and jealousy) of Ryan's longtime friend Honey, who wishes she were his girlfriend. McDaniel furnishes the souped-up drama her fans crave, and even the denouement has its soapy excess (Ryan, about to be reunited with the now-vilified and convicted Ms. Settles, asks, Which of us is the predator and which the prey? ). Readers interested in a more sophisticated, psychologically astute treatment of the same subject should see last fall's Boy Toy by Barry Lyga (Reviews, Sept. 3, 2007). Ages 12-up.

Prey book review

Omg! Where do I begin? As I just finished I have caught myself in a dilemma... Now which book is my favorite? Don't die my love is my favorite book of all time but now, Prey has blew it out of the water!! Mrs. McDaniel, you have did it again! I love you, my favorite author. You give me so much happiness in reading your novels. Thank you


Wouldn't recommend this book! It painted disturbing pictures in my head... Not like the other books she has written. This was about a teacher student relationship. Enough said.
