classroom Good looking freshman, Ryan Piccoli, makes a witty funny comment.The impressed and smitten teacher decides thathe ll be the oneSo she plots an elaborate scheme to gain his trust and make him hers.Despite the clich d beginning, Prey does a great job at exploring the forbidden student teacher relationship It touches upon the psychological reasoning and repercussions of a teacher who takes advantage of an innocent student.Although I found the romance disturbing as it should be , it seemed rushed at times I also did not appreciate the brief ending, where Lurlene McDaniel felt the need to provide an analysis of why the characters behaved the way they did it all seemed obvious enough to me I ll just leave it at that Another great book by Lurlene McDaniel I always read her books when I was younger and when I read the description for Prey I knew that I had to pick up this book and give Lurlene McDaniel another try now that I am older And her books are still as good as I remember.The book starts off with Ryan, he has good friends, does okay in school, and is a well rounded kid He is good friends with a girl named Honey, and Honey has a crush on him, but Ryan only sees her as a friend NothingThen com Another great book by Lurlene McDaniel I always read her books when I was younger and when I read the description for Prey I knew that I had to pick up this book and give Lurlene McDaniel another try now that I am older And her books are still as good as I remember.The book starts off with Ryan, he has good friends, does okay in school, and is a well rounded kid He is good friends with a girl named Honey, and Honey has a crush on him, but Ryan only sees her as a friend NothingThen comes Lori, aka Ms Settles She is the sexy high heel wearing new history teacher and every guy has the hots for her But Ms Settles only has eyes for one Ryan And Ryan wants her too.The book does get a little steamy in some places, but nothing bad for older teens to read I actually find myself feeling kind of sorry for Ms Settles towards the middle of the book because you can tell that she has something seriously wrong with her She gets up at 3 AM to clean the kitchen floor and doesn t sleep And obviously their is something wrong with her if she wants to sleep with her student.Ryan also really likes Lori All through the book I was wondering if he had a thing for his teacher because his mom had died when he was young and he was looking for a mother figure Or if he found her irresistible like the rest of the guys in the school did and just wanted to be with her.I know that I was very shocked at the end of the book and the outcome of it Not your typical ending and what you would think would happen But it made for a good read and I think that it fit the book If you look at the news now and all of the cases that are going on with students and teachers, the outcome of the book sounds just like one of them.This was a great read Reviewed by Me for

his mother died when he was still a toddler, he has a father that, although gone most of the time as part of his job, still tries to connect with him as much as he can Things are going pretty well he s hoping for a car for Christmas for his sixteenth birthday, he s both excited and anxious to be starting high school, he s wondering if he ll get a girlfriend And then the unthinkable happens he meets Miss Lori Settles, the knew World History teacher Miss Settles is an immediate hit at McAllister High School, at least with the male population you d probably get a different response from the females She s young, she s gorgeous, she seems to understand teenagers, and she has the most important attribute that any normal male can ask for she s got a body to die for, and she dresses for school each day in a way that will show it to its best advantage Suddenly, every guy in the building, from students to faculty, wants to find a way to spend time with Miss Settles Only Ryan gets to spend time with her in a way that no one else would ever expect What starts off innocently enough as a request to help his teacher move furniture soon evolves into trips to a coffee shop late at night And when those trips then turn into visits at her apartment, Ryan figures it s only right, since they obviously are in love with each other What follows is a sexual affair that, although high in intensity, might end up burning them both in the end Ms McDaniel has written a real page turner with PREY Once you start reading, you ll not want to stop until the last word is read This is a book

frustrated by an author s note the second in the book that gave the impression that only female teachers are predators, and only to male students I mean, really There s never been a male teacher who took advantage of his position OK I ll forget that I read an article last week.This was not the typical Lurlene fare, as she notes at the beginning There are no diseases, no amputations, no transplants and no horrific car crashes But you know what She did this very well For what it is, I mean This is not, nor will it ever be, literature But by the standards I have for Lurlene, she knocked it out of the park.You have to go into it with a suspension of disbelief, of course Ryan s mother is gone his dad travels, leaving Ryan to essentially raise himself There are some reveals as the book goes on particularly toward the end that are a little heavy handed, to say the least And the ultimate conclusion doesn t do enough of what it wants to do in exploring the psyche of Ryan, in particular But the story is largely streamlined, and sticks to the thread of Ryan s seduction by his teacher The multiple POVs actually work, for the most part.Could it have done a better job of showing the impact on Ryan, his friends and the school after their relationship inevitably comes to light Of course Lurlene isn t interested in consequences so much as titillation The story is rushed, the characters could usefleshing out, the issue is still the most important thing But on the whole, she does it a whole lot better than I expected her to I read this book for a YA class last year and

sights on her fifteen year old student, Ryan Piccoli She makes plans to have him mind, body, and soul She s developed her plan and executed it perfectly, only she didn t expect someone to find outThis novel deals with the taboo subject of teachers having affairs with their students It addresses very real issues of consensual sex and when someone is considered a predator It s a very intersting read, and I would have no problem placing it on my shelves, but I can t see myself using it for class discussion To me, it sfor personal reading than intiating class dicussions Really great read, though Some books take uncomfortable issues and handle them really well This one didn t.The first half was just some annoying, mildly sexist little smartass lusting after his teacher s hot body, his not conventionally attractive female best friend whining and pining after him and hating on prettier girls, and the hot teacher being creepy and gross as she plotted to fuck her underage student.I ll admit this right here I DO like teacher student dynamics, but I don t actually want them to get together i Some books take uncomfortable issues and handle them really well This one didn t.The first half was just some annoying, mildly sexist little smartass lusting after his teacher s hot body, his not conventionally attractive female best friend whining and pining after him and hating on prettier girls, and the hot teacher being creepy and gross as she plotted to fuck her underage student.I ll admit this right here I DO like teacher student dynamics, but I don t actually want them to get together in a modern day setting like this one Or if they do, for them to do like Meiko and Namura did in Marmalade Boy and wait till the student s graduated and legal There are other gray areas, but Ryan and Lori s relationship was disturbing on so many levels She s possessive, clingy, she s fucked other students and made him believe he was special, she buys his love with expensive presents meaning she must be secretly rich because teacher s salaries aren t known for being generous.I was hating on Honey a bit for whining about Ryan and her slut shaming deal, but honestly I was rooting for her in the end because it s clear she did it out of legit concern for her friend s well being and because what Lori was doing was WRONG The book didn t even treat her like she was Just Jealous, either, which I give Lurlene credit for.Two big deal subjects come up that are basically afterthoughts Ryan s mom killed herself when he was two, and Lori was raped by her dad and her mom didn t stop it These are barely hinted at in the story and dumped in as exposition y bits near the end Also, Ryan and Lori get back together Now, if Lurlene was going for a dysfunctional, fucked up relationship dynamic that d be one thing but she claims to have written the book in response to the double standard about it being okay for female teachers to fuck male students if they re super hot Thatdoesn t line up with what s presented.Ryan s also a sociopathic slut, by the way At the end he uses his experience with Lori as a means of fucking other girls, and he mentions specifically zeroing in on ones lacking confidence So being fucked and used by his teacher turned him into a creeper, and we re still supposed to be rooting for him If the story just had him living his life normally to prove he s not just a poor little victim that d be one thing, but he still acts like there was nothing wrong with what happened Him wanting her and enjoying the sex doesn t negate Lori s crime Oh, and she got off with a slap on the wrist because 16 is the legal age in Georgia and once Ryan turned 16 what she did to him was no longer illegal Not sure if this is actually a thing in Georgia or the book didn t actually want to condemn Lori even though Lurlene claimed what she did was wrong This book tried to be so many things and ended up being a mess Ryan Piccoli is your average high school male He s smart, good looking and a class clown He spends most of his free time hanging out with his two best friends, Honey and Joel But he s also mostly a loner His mother is out of his life and his father travels a lot for work, leaving Ryan home alone most days Then Lori Settles, the new history teacher, enters his life Sexy, high heel wearing, cleavage showing Ms Settles is the talk of the school and has males of both the student and faculty p Ryan Piccoli is your average high school male He s smart, good looking and a class clown He spends most of his free time hanging out with his two best

enters his life Sexy, high heel wearing, cleavage showing Ms Settles is the talk of the school and has males of both the student and faculty population wanting to spendtime with her But Ms Settles has eyes for Ryan only After Lori invites Ryan over to help her move furniture, their relationship quickly escalates into a sexual affair The relationship with Lori is affecting Ryan, and his friends and father can tell something is up As the relationship continues and Ryan becomes overwhelmed, Ryan tries to regain part of his old life When things start to spiral out of control, both Ryan and Lori must deal with the consequences of their decisions.Like Boy Toy by Barry Lyga, this book looks at the sensitive topic of a sexual relationship between a female teacher and a male student Unlike Boy Toy , I found that the seduction of Ryan by Lori happened extremely quickly, whereas Boy Toy led up to it slowly Prey was a quickly paced book from start to finish and I found that it could have used another 100 pages to fully develop the storyline and characters with adequate histories and motives However, given the low number of pages, I found that McDaniel did a good job of creating an exciting story that would grab hold of the reader s attention I liked how McDaniel explored the non ideal family life of Ryan s mother being gone and his father being away on business so much It makes me wonder if the relationship with Lori would have even happened had there been someone to keep tabs on Ryan s whereabouts I also liked how the sexual content was not very graphic and wasoff screen I was surprised by the ending, but I thought it fit the rest of the story Overall I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to older teens looking to tackle a quick read on a sensitive subject Readers are cautioned there is sexual content I was interested in this book because as a child I was a big Lurlene McDaniel fan and this was something outside of her usual stories, so I decided to give it a go As much as I hate to sound rude, I have to admit, I wish I didn t.The teacher student issue is something that isn t often mentioned and not something that people particularly like hearing about I do admire that Lurlene went out of what she usually writes to talk about somethingserious and something not commonly talked about B I was interested in this book because as a child I was a big

something that isn t often mentioned and not something that people particularly like hearing about I do admire that Lurlene went out of what she usually writes to talk about somethingserious and something not commonly talked about But the characters Oh my, the characters They all bothered me The book switches between three points of views, Ryan the main character , Lori the teacher and Honey Ryan s best friend who is hopelessly in love with him Man, where do I start Lori hates that men her age look at her like she s a piece of meat to pounce on which was her reason for liking Ryan, because he was innocent but isn t the way she s looking at Ryan the same way men are looking at her I didn t like her because most of the things she said didn t make sense, because she was possessive over Ryan and she would act like a child to get her way I mean, seriously Ryan was one of those characters I wanted to smack every three pages The way his attitude changed and how he thought he was so much better than everyone else for keeping this secret was just ridiculous And Honey, she was just obsessed with Ryan Completely utterly stalkerly obsessed with him.The plot consisted of Lori s sick thoughts, Ryan s attitude and Honey s next big stalker plan We never find out really why Lori is the way she is, or why Ryan s really attracted to her besides her body but at least at some point Honey stops stalking him.While I do admire that Lurlene did talk about this subject and it was apparent that she researched this subject closely, I still ended up hating the characters I wish there had
