A female may be queen bitch but she doesn’t get to choose her king. I have to admit, it took me a while to get into this story. Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. I love the ending!
Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause | : Books
Because the heroine, Vivian, had just as little luck escaping her cardboard persona. When she gives in and slinks back to the ranks, even the other females growl ahnette her to show their disapproval. He gets with Vivian, who is sixteen. All characters are portrayed as curtis-kause than the novel versions, Vivian and Aiden are scaled up to be 19 years old and Gabriel is portrayed to be in his late 30’s.
Apr 01, Wendy Darling rated it did not like it Shelves: But the names and werewolf thing seems to be the only thing the same. Well, as you can see, we human always get the major part in most book. Jun 04, Scribblegirl rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Looking for beautiful books? She and Aiden are close to the point where they might have sex, and she decides she wants him to know the truth about her before they get intimate.
Astrid and Esme, both around forty, are lusting after Gabe, who is twenty-four. Not at the way her attempt was handled, but at the fact that she even had the gall to try. Every action she takes endangers someone and she only ever focuses on her own needs, despite the other characters cooing over how she shows such concern for the pack. She makes Bella look like Hermione Granger — an intelligent female character. He [Gabe] was much bigger than her and didn’t mind hitting females.
Blood and Chocolate
Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. She has to be the strongest and the smartest to ensure our survival. She is permanently trapped between wolf and human form until she learns to accept her identity as a werewolf.
She had a family, a close one. They are talking about human, and finally, they choose their own kind.
Our love interest is Aiden, a rebellious, Satan worshiping, faux emo. I absolutely love this book.
The official fight had not yet started and he only used this tactic on her, not on anyone else. Vivian is now permanently stuck between human and wolf form. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would. And overlooking the part where Vivian is presumably sixteen or a little older than that, we have a pretty decent love story.
Coupled with that they are incredibly short-sighted and have no coping mechanisms and tactics to deal with their current situation. Astrid now plans to murder Aiden, so Vivian runs to his defense, only to find that Aiden means to kill her. Definitely never going to happen. What started out a good story about a werewolf girl venturing outside known violence and primitive rules turns giant steps backwards to hiding in fear of what is different.
Maybe the fact that Vivian can become “Alpha bitch” already at the age of 16 years might be considered progressive but in truth that would be double standard here since males are considered adult at 18but not only is her role pretty passive and she is basically there for support like the typical female in a patriarchal systemnope she, just like the alpha male, only becomes leader via fight and technically it was rather coincidence here and nothing else.
Vivian feels very alone and confused. She uses awkward terminology such as referring to a gift from Vivian’s boyfriend as a “love gift”.
