Wow ... this book was just plain amazing and pure genius. Vivian, and her entire clan are werewolves. After something bad happened in their town, they move to a new city and try to start over again. In result, Vivian meets up with a new group of friends, and falls in love with a human. Once she finally gets comfortable enough to reveal her secret self to him, he is so terribly frightened, and pushed her away in such an awful way. She eventually finds love in the least expected place (although, didn't we kind of see it coming in the end?)and all is right with her world again (atleast for a bit)
This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I thank him greatly for it because I loved it just that much. I had never really been interested in werewolves at all (and genereally stuck to vampires and fairies) but if you're into any type of supernatural, I think you should definately try this book out. I wasn't expecting to fall in love with this book as much as I did!
Blood and Chocolate is about Vivian Gandillon, a young, but very mature, werewolf. After two killings by some of the pack, her father is killed in a fire started by some suspicious villagers. The pack relocates to a suburb in Maryland but it remains leaderless and in ruins. However, Gabriel is trying to lead the pack but Vivian is irked by his arrogance and large ego.
Vivian soon falls in love with a human boy named Aiden. Aiden is sweet and kind and gentle. She's finally making friends and is living a somewhat normal life, but does that satisfy everything the werewolf in Vivian needs? In any case, the normalsey she is experiencing is soon ripped away when a series of vicous murders threatens to expose the pack. Who's behind them, is it Vivian?
I highly recomend Blood and Chocolate to any teen or adult interested in werewolves or the supernatural for it is a rgreat book. However, I advise younger adiences avoid it for many sexual implications and violence.
Don't judge a book by its cover! This book was GREAT!

Ok, I would like to say that this book was great and I did the one thing readers are told not to do. I almost didnt read it because of the cover. I mean because looking at it makes you think of those stupid animorph books but it's not! I ended up reading it because I told myself anything with chocolate as the title had to be worth my time of day. This book was unbelievable I honstly wasn't expecting it to be so well-written and interesting. Blood and Chocolate is the story of 16 year old Vivian Gandillon who is a werewolf. She falls in love with this human boy named Aiden and all throughout the book struggles whether or not to reveal her true identity to him afraid of his rejection and betrayal. Meanwhile her family and her pack arein need a new leader and his mate Vivian accdentally becomes the mate of Gabriel the eye candy of her mother and friend's mother. I don't want to say anyhting else for fear of giving away any juicy details. Overall this book was amazing romantic with adventure and nough intrigue and suspense that will make you want read the book in the very same day. Plus, the book has a great and wanted ending! And, if you chose to read this book and you likk I suggest Twilight by Stephanie Meyer its also a romance yet adnveture book but has to deal with vampires and its a series!
This is basically a romance. A werewolf girl named Vivian falls in love with a human boy. The life of a clan of werewolves and regular humans is very different and Vivian tries to balance both lives. This is further complicated by murders.
When Vivian finally reveals to the human her secret he is frightened and rejects her. Vivian finally learns that true love is one where you are accepted and can be yourself. It is a sweet story worth reading.
Vivian is not completely what she seems--she's a werewolf. She falls in love with what her people refer to as a "meat-boy." (A regular human) His name is Aidan and he is completely unaware of Vivian truely is. Her mother is not in favor of her relationship with him. Vivian struggles to be a regular person and fit in. With her pack close to ruins and disapproval at her relationship with Aidan, she seems bound for trouble. Will she ever truely fit in? Is everything that's going well for her going to take a turn for the worst?
This is a fantastic book that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Blood and Chocolate is a suspenseful and well-writen book with adventure, romance, and action! A great read!
i loved blood and chocolate it's very hard to find a good werewolf book. my favorite character was gaberielle. it had a great ending that makes the reader want more. the book is filled with twists and turns that will make you want to get to the end to find out what ends up happening.
it's like a werewolf version of Romeo and JUliet only Romeo and Juliet weren't part human.
This is one of the most insperational books of my time. I believe that this author new exactly what she was doing when she wrote this, and coming from a young short-story writer such as myself that should be something that would be stood up and noticed. The story captures what its like for a teenage girl to have something that mysterus about her but not able to reveal it to anyone but her kind. and when she does the life she lead goes to hell in a hand basket. i think that there should be more stories like this one written for todays youth.
This is one of my most favortie books mainly because it has all of the elements I love in books: romance, action, and paranormal/fantasy stuff. Readers will love the fast pace of the book and the topic of werewolves.
