Justine's Thoughts: Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith

By Cynthia Leitich Smith



Book Description:

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.

A quote:

"It’s not just a sunset," I said, going for poetic. "It’s a moonrise, too."

Any thoughts:

  • I think this is the first vampire book I’ve read that is not in a series, so it took me a while to get in the zone, but I did like this book a lot.
  • I was so used to the common human love triangles so when I stumbled upon this one, I thought it was odd. But hey, there’s no such thing as a ‘normal’ love triangle, is there?
  • It may seem slow at the beginning, however, it unravels throughout the story and it all comes down to the end, where it became difficult to stop flipping the pages.
