I liked this book. Elizabeth Atkins Bowman adeptly describes the feelings of hostility and fear that any minority person might feel when confronted by the bigotry that continues to beleaguer our nation. She does this while telling an exciting story of love lost and careers made.
Taylor James, the biracial protagonist of this tale, has been betrayed by her best friend and former lover, Julian Dupont, but she has put that behind her and is now a successful television journalist and fiance of the powerful owner of wolf media corporation, Phillip Carter.
Then her carefully planned life begins to fall apart when the white supremist leaders whose organization she had infiltrated and destroyed are set free and threaten to kill her. Her fiance becomes annoyed with her strong racial leanings and her strong career ambitions. Her renewed relationship with Julian makes her question her decision to marry Phillip. Julian will stop at nothing to win Taylor back and to protect her. The white supremists will stop at nothing to murder her.
The story is well drawn but sometimes contrived in order to make its point both philosophically and in terms of plot lines. I did, however, enjoy it enough to order Bowman's next book.

I'm telling you...the first reviewer that labeled their review, Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz was RIGHT ON THE MONEY! I should have listened, but I was hard-headed and purchased the book anyway. This book is SO boring. I read the other reviews and thought I would give this one a shot. I liked the concept, but author just wasn't able to allow the story to flow and it is disappointing. It's been 2 weeks and I'm only on page 92...does that tell you anything? I'm really trying to fight through it and as the other reviewer stated, I'm also skipping pages so I can get to something interesting. It hasn't held my interest at all. Needless to say I may just have to put this one down and start reading something else.

Taylor James, a biracial beauty, was tortured and harassed due to her mixed heritage. Having a black father and white mother didn't make life easy for Taylor especially growing up in the heart of Detroit. Julian DuPont, who was also biracial, was Taylor's closest friend and protector. If anyone even thought of trying to bully Taylor, they had to go through Julian. Not only were Taylor and Julian close childhood friends they also became each other's first love. They were inseparable and just knew they would spend the rest of their lives together. However, their relationship ended unexpectedly, and Taylor was devastated.

After the relationship ended, Taylor threw herself into her work and became a very successful news reporter. She made herself known by going undercover and exposing a violent white supremacist group. Not only did she become well-known, but she also initiated a death threat on her life, the supremacists got out of jail and wanted revenge. They were dead set on getting back at Taylor since she was the one who exposed them and assisted in having them incarcerated.

Stress is high in Taylor's life as there is not only a death threat on her life, but work is becoming a burden and she is having second thoughts about her engagement to her boss, the owner of Wolf Television Network. And the final blow is the return of her first love Julian DuPont. Will Julian's reappearance cause added turmoil with Taylor and her fiance'? Will Julian be able to act as Taylor's protector against the white supremacist group as he did in the past?

WHITE CHOCOLATE is a well-written pageturner that will keep you wanting more. The writing was so intense I felt as if I was right there with Taylor during her trials. I feared for her life as if she were a close friend. Julian and Taylor's love was so deep and strong it seems trivial why they broke up in the first place. What I enjoyed most was the realism of the storyline. Racism is alive and well even today and Bowman portrayed it pretty much true to form. The only thing I didn't like about the story was Taylor's fiance', he was a character you love to hate. That just goes to show you how well-written this book was, when you find yourself having a strong dislike for a character or two and still enjoying the story. Bowman is a talented author who has a knack for writing suspenseful thrillers.

After reading the first couple of pages in this book I was most definitely hooked! It was a wake up call to the real side of racial prejudice and hate towards minorities and people of biracial ethnicity. Taylor, a biracial television journalist, who looks white is threatened by a White Supremacist group after she poses as a would be member and brings down the organization. Once the members are released from prison their main objective is to destroy Taylor.
After a ten year separation in walks the man that Taylor loved more than any one else, Julian also biracial and a television journalist has returned to reclaim the love they once shared . One problem, Taylor is now engaged and scheduled to marry the owner of the television station they both now work for. Philip , Taylor's fiancee has a few deep dark secrets that brings the story to an explosive confrontation between him and Taylor, and later him and Julian.
The daring prison escape of the White supremacist was one no one could have anticipated but was so explosive that it had me holding my breath.
The story was very well written and the love scenes between Taylor and Julian were to say the least heartstopping. The dramatic climax is what make this books worthy of Hollywood taking a read and making a movie on it.
You will not want to put this book down. 350 pages was not enough! I read this book in one sitting because i could not stand to wait and see what happened next. Definitely a keeper!
