Are you predator or prey?

CLASSIFIED ADS: RESTAURANTS
SANGUINI'S: A VERY RARE RESTAURANT IS HIRING A CHEF DE CUISINE. DINNERS ONLY.
APPLY IN PERSON BETWEEN 2:00 AND 4:00 PM.

Quincie Morris has never felt more alone. Her parents are dead, and her hybrid-werewolf first love is threatening to embark on a rite of passage that will separate them forever. Then, as she and her uncle are about to unveil their hot vampire-themed restaurant, a brutal murder leaves them scrambling for a chef. Can Quincie transform their new hire into a culinary Dark Lord before opening night? Can he wow the crowd in his fake fangs, cheap cape, and red contact lenses - or is there more to this earnest face than meets the eye?

As human and preternatural forces clash, a deadly love triangle forms, and the line between predator and prey begins to blur. Who's playing whom? And how long can Quincie play along before she loses everything? Tantalize marks Cynthia Leitich Smith's delicious debut as a preeminent author of dark fantasy.

    " I'll be honest in saying this wasn't my favorite book, but I think it would be unfair to compare it to the Twilight saga. It's a different flavor entirely, and you just can't compare the two authors. It did get a little ridiculous toward the end, though, and I found the ending itself leaving too much to be desired... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 2/11/2014

    " I was reading along and the book was going smoothly and then about half way, it felt like a very quick change happened. All of a sudden the main character was different and it seems so sudden that I felt like I missed a chapter. The ending was also disappointing to me. He just leaves? Really? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beccy | 1/25/2014

    " I loved this book :D Great story only bad thing there could have been a bit more romance in it. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 1/9/2014

    " Quincie is in love with her half were best friend and struggling to help run the restaurant that her parents left to her after they died. When Quincie and her uncle decide to reopen the restaurant with a vampire theme, Quincie is suddenly tangled in a web of mystery and murder. Although I really admired the main character and the quirky sense of humor and cute foodie twists in Tantalize, the overall story and plot left me feeling lukewarm. For the plot to have worked, I guess the love story needed some intense romance and angst. Unfortunately, the emotional side of the love story just never manifests enough to win me over. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassie | 12/21/2013

    " This book....I don't even know what to say....when I fired myself to finish I realized there was no point to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. Ostrowski | 12/19/2013

    " Another talented voice to add to the vampy-were world. Thumbs up. A good YA read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A Filthy Youth groupie | 12/17/2013

    " This book was very good. The only thing I didn't like about it was that the author used a little too many fragmented sentences. But it was still a really, really good book! And I would recomend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 12/13/2013

    " another awesome vampire book. this one started my venture back into the young adult books now i cant seem to step away! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maranda | 12/5/2013

    " Completely infuriating in a great way! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emma-Jane | 9/18/2013

    " couldn't get into it, gave up... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shauna | 9/5/2013

    " This was a really quick read. I hated the ending. Felt ripped off. Actually I hated the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie | 6/18/2013

    " I didn't like this book at first, so I put it away and read it again about 6 months later. I liked it better with some time. I think even though it is shelved in YA at my book store, it is for older teens and adults. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne | 4/12/2013

    " I really wanted to like this book, but I didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay Paige | 4/2/2013

    " It was a good book. I wanted to keep reading until I was finished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla Latham | 2/27/2013

    " I liked this book. It was the same "world" as Ms. Smith's "Blessed" and "Eternal" (which are part of the "Tantalize" series) but with different characters. I like this world she has created but with each book the characters are different. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 1/29/2013

    " Your uncle is acting strangely, you are caught up in trying to save your family's restaurant, and you're also still in school. Is it any wonder you haven't noticed shady dealings going on around you? You might discover the solution to the problem just in time. But what if you don't? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 8/21/2012

    " amazing. i hope the sequel is just as good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 8/21/2012

    " part of my vampire phase - not as good as Twilight series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 4/4/2012

    " Definitely a different cup of tea from what I am used to. The writing style is interesting, and sometimes confusing. It was memorable, but in an odd way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 8/31/2011

    " very hard to put down a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reader17 Der | 7/9/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. At was stunned when one of the characters was killed in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 6/22/2011

    " Combines a restaurant and a very evil, creative vampire. The evil vampire creates the menu for the restaurant and puts a little vampire blood in some of the items, which creates a league of new vampires for his army. Very different and entertaining-I couldn't put it down, it was so much fun! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rosa | 6/10/2011

    " ugh...this was horrible.... don't even try reading it you will be so depressed that you even picked it up "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melina | 6/8/2011

    " I read it through and through. However the novel seemed to be more about the food than anything else. It was not mind blowing but not horrible either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edith | 6/4/2011

    " loved cant wait for the next one who would of thought of werpossoms "

    " really good, these books go into two different stories so you might not understand until u get to the third book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/27/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany | 4/27/2011

    " I should have known what I was getting myself into from reading the reviews. The beginning was somewhat interesting but then became somewhat torturous to finish. "
