5 out of 5

Quincie Morris was an ordinary girl, that is, as normal as you can get with a first love who’s a werewolf. However, when someone murders the chief at a vampire-themed restaurant, which her family happens to own, things will change Quincie’s life forever. Her uncle hires a new chief, but can she change him into the Dark Lord they need for opening night? However, there is more to this chief than what meets the eye, will Quincie notice the betrayal from someone close to her before it’s too late? Or, will she be converted to the dark side and lose everything?

Tantalize is kind of different from other vampire and supernatural books I have read since most of them are like this: Girl meets vampire, girl falls in love with vampire, girl and vampire stay together forever against all odds.

With this book, you expect Quincie to pick one of the guys, but she doesn’t really pick one in the end. Though, that’s kind of disappointing for me. I was hoping she would pick to go with Kieren. Oh well, I guess that’s why I like this book. The female character does her own thing and doesn’t always pick the guy she wants in the end.

Anyways, that’s the main reason why I kind of like this book. Also, it has a lot of details and events that keep you interested in the book. Though, I would really like to know what happens to Kieren and Bradley after Quincie kind of dumps them both. :) This vampire book is not as good as Eternal, which is the second book in this series, but it is still a great read.

Where I Got It:

Checked out from the library.
