Vivian is a beautiful, self-assured 16-year-old werewolf girl. After a tragic fire strikes the lives of her pack in West Virginia, the remnants of the group move to a city in Maryland temporarily. Vivian finds it hard to make friends; everyone is intimidated by her beauty and self-confidence. Meanwhile, shes lonelier than ever because shes starting to feel that her old werewolf friends are becoming immature and dangerous, while her mother Esme flirts too much with younger men ever since her husbands death in the fire.
Then Vivian meets Aiden. Hes poetic, sensitive, gentle&and a human, a meat-boy. Still, Vivian finds herself falling for him. Her family and friends dont approve of her playing with her food, but Vivian is certain that she and Aiden are wonderful together, and that maybe, someday, she can reveal to him what she really is.
Meanwhile, the pack is uneasy because they must choose a new leader. The strongest candidate is Gabriel, a powerful and dangerous 24-year-old who seems intent on making Vivian his mate, no matter how much she resists him. But Vivian barely has time to think about him. Things with Aiden have turned bad, and she thinks she is becoming a danger to her pack. How far will she go to protect the lives of the ones she loves?
BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE is exciting and unusual; it doesnt let down for even one page. All of the characters are multifaceted and complex, which I love. Readers of all ages and genders will be able to appreciate this book, which has a little bit of everything for everyone.
