In Alissa Nutting’s novel Tampa, Celeste Price, a smoldering 26-year-old middle-school teacher in Florida, unrepentantly recounts her elaborate and sociopathically determined seduction of a 14-year-old student.
Celeste has chosen and lured the charmingly modest Jack Patrick into her web. Jack is enthralled and in awe of his eighth-grade teacher, and, most importantly, willing to accept Celeste’s terms for a secret relationship—car rides after dark, rendezvous at Jack’s house while his single father works the late shift, and body-slamming erotic encounters in Celeste’s empty classroom. In slaking her sexual thirst, Celeste Price is remorseless and deviously free of hesitation, a monstress of pure motivation. She deceives everyone, is close to no one, and cares little for anything but her pleasure.
Tampa is a sexually explicit, virtuosically satirical, American Psycho–esque rendering of a monstrously misplaced but undeterrable desire. Laced with black humor and crackling sexualized prose, Alissa Nutting’s Tampa is a grand, seriocomic examination of the want behind student / teacher affairs and a scorching literary debut.

Great book. 14 year old boys fantasy comes true with sexy nympho teacher. Lots and lots of dirty talk. This is dirtier than penthouse forum,
Disgusting yet Brilliant Psychological Study
I read this book in the course of three evenings. It's a very fast read. Initially, I found the descriptions gratuitous and icky (this is a first person narrative of a sexual psychopath after all), but eventually you are pulled in by the desire to find out what happens to this awful woman and see what feats of rationalization she can pull off next. I read this a few weeks after watching Ariel Castro's sociopathic rant at his sentencing, and I have to say that after having watched that and then reading this, I finally understand what people mean by the phrase "banality of evil." I would recommend it, unless you are a survivor of sexual abuse - it that case the grooming may seem entirely too familiar.
A bit disturbing at times but a very different read. I enjoyed and overall, a great book. A very fast read, which I finished in a few evenings.
Every middle school/ high school boys fantasies over there hot teacher comes true. Lots of descriptive sexual scenes and dirty talk.
