Vivian Gandillon relishes the change, the sweet, fierce ache that carries her from girl to wolf. At sixteen, she is beautiful and strong, and all the young wolves are on her tail. But Vivian still grieves for her dead father; her pack remains leaderless and in disarray, and she feels lost in the suburbs of Maryland. She longs for a normal life. But what is normal for a werewolf?
Then Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy. Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. He's fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would.
Vivian's divided loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose the pack. Moving between two worlds, she does not seem to belong in either. What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate?
First review of Blood and Chocolate
Loved reading this book again! It was just fantastic, and these characters and this world, it's just so incredible and good, and I just wanted to spend more time there! I just wish that there was a sequel or two, because it's just so freaking good!
So basically my thoughts are the same-it was a really awesome book, and I just want a sequel! Because that's pretty much the big arcs of my thoughts of this book, though there are ones within those arcs!
Like, her relationship with Aiden, though knowing it was doomed from the start, this time, is something that she needed to learn, to experience a bit of life like a human, and know that she wanted and preferred being a werewolf.
Then, in the wanting of a sequel, the relationship between her and Gabriel, well, after she fought to be the alpha female (though not really, she was fighting to protect her mom) and he helps her change into one form, I just want more of their relationship!
Such a fantastic, entertaining book! Really enjoyed rereading it!
