Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

Goodreads Summary: "Blood and Chocolate chronicles the longings and passions of one Vivian Gandillon, teenage werewolf. Her pack family, recently burned out of their West Virginia home by suspicious neighbors, has resettled in a sleepy Maryland suburb. At her new school, Viv quickly falls for sensitive heartthrob Aiden, a human--or "meat-boy," as her pack calls him. Soon she is trying to tame her undomesticated desires to match his more civilized sensibilities... But Vivian's animal ardor cannot be stilled, and she must decide if she should keep Aiden in the dark about her true nature or invite him to take a walk on her wild side."

Review: I finished this one quickly. It was a fast read, and besides being interesting, it didn't take long to get through. Like I said earlier, I liked Vivian and her personality, because it's different than the vanilla girls you usually read about in YA books. It was interesting to me how much of her behavior towards humans is just a product of her upbringing/family mores, since she takes a very submissive position when she's around other werewolves. I'm a little uncomfortable with how much of the book is about sex (hint: a lot), even though there isn't any actual sex. The sultry sensuality is a lot more prominent than, say, Twilight, and I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone younger than 16 or so.
