Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith Review

Quincie Morris has never felt more alone. Her hybrid-werewolf first love is threatening to leave her forever. And just as she and her uncle are about to unveil Austin’s first vampire-themed restaurant, their chef’s brutal murder leaves Quincie scrambling to transform fresh-faced Henry Johnson into a culinary Dark Lord in time for opening night. But there’s more than meets the eye to this new hire, and Quincie is about to learn a whole lot about love… and Blood.

My Thoughts:

This book is told from Quincie’s point of view. She’s a senior in high school and she has more going on than just her studies. School just serves as more of a distraction, even her VP “Hardass” (I thought that was so funny! His real name is Harding) suggest she finish all of the rest of the assignments during home school. Her parent’s died in a fatal accident and their family’s Italian restaurant has been in the care of her uncle Davidson, whom Quince loves very much. It starts going bankrupt so they decide to close it down and remodel it with a vamp theme. It all starts getting weird for her afterwards and its set in Quince’s hometown of Austin, TX. I think my favorite part of the book has to be the chapter names! They were so much fun! This book has it all, humor, vamps, werewolf’s and it’s uniquely written! I can not wait to read Eternal. It’s already out and on my to read list! I give this book 3.5 out of 5 paws.

  1. This is one of my favorite books. I loved it so much. I like Eternal but it was different.
