Toxic: Truckee Wolves by Belinda McBride
I saw this on Amazon and was like, a book about an African American woman with a chocolate addiction? Hey! Who wrote my life storye without my permission! So, I read the story to provide evidence for my case. However the heroine is a Veterinarian and leads a more fascinating life than mine. Alas I read on and enjoyed this read!
Dr. Briony Theale loves. her job as a veterinarian, a good bar of chocolate, and Rico, the ranger in charge of the Wildlife Rescue center. When a dinner date with her crush turns surprisingly intimate, Briony realizes that she might just have a chance with him.
Rico Montgomery fell hard for Briony the first time he set eyes on the curvy little doctor. Her rich brown hair and cocoa skin trigger cravings he can barely control, and her fragrance is like the sweetest, richest chocolate he's ever scented in his life. That's a bad thing for Rico, because to a werewolf like him, chocolate is literally a toxin.
Rico can't live with it, and Briony can't live without it. And when a certain wandering wolf finds a bag of chocolate in the trash near Briony's clinic, these two will find out just how toxic love can be.
This was just an okay read. I felt like I was missing part of the story, so I went about trying to find other books in the series and it turns out that this is the first. Then their was the drawn out story of Rico being stuck in his wolf form and not being able to tell Briony. Then their was the pack taking her hostage after Rico goes 'missing.'
There were just too many unexplained details and the 'drama' was a little to drawn out. The bombshell at the end concerning Dion was telegraphed with the first chapter.
