The unfiltered hilarity of this book made me laugh and orgasm at the same time. Can you laugh yourself into an orgasm?? Never in my life have I been so damn proud to have a vagina! I normally don't like vagina; it can be very territorial. When vagina...vaginas...vagini? When vagini get around each other, the pussy claws come out and everything becomes one big competition. It's like the f**king whoo-ha olympics; every twat for themselves. But deep down inside we'...more
This book started out hilarious and I was having a blast reading it until I wasn't. It stopped being funny and started to become annoying. Very annoying, over-the-top, and ridiculous. Just too much! For me, this is one of those books that tries too hard to be funny and ends up failing because of it. And, boy, was it crude! Not a fun combination for me!
I believe whether or not this book works for a reader depends solely on what one considers humorous. For those wondering if this book's humor w...more
No book has EVER made me laugh this hard. I giggled, squeed, snorted, and cried with laughter to the point where I’d have to stop reading in order to catch my breath!! PURE FUN!
But the best part was that it wasn’t just a funny story – it had everything! It was oh-so-swoony with some seriously omg-fan-yourself H.O.T and steamy bedroom scenes and an absolutely heart-meltingly sweet and beautiful story about a family f...more
Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec was pure awesome! Never, and I repeat, NEVER has a book made me laugh this hard. I made the mistake of bringing my Kindle with me to a Starbucks and I started reading this book there. I seriously must have looked like a mad woman in desperate need of therapy. I was laughing so hard, and I...more
Seduction and Snacks is one of - if not the - funniest book I’ve ever read. It’s an irreverent look at single parenting, dating, finding true love and… well, it’s a story about so much!
Claire and Carter are a great couple. I loved that there was NOT a bunch of drama… loved that Carter took on his role of father without hesitation, and those ‘becoming a parent’ moments were some of the funniest scenes ever written. Gavin is a precocious, too-smart-for-his-own-good four year old with a potty mouth...more
★★★★ 4 memorable and funny-as-hell STARS.
My main reaction while reading this book was pretty much this:
I was either laughing out loud or shocked at something one of the characters said and that made me embarrased in their place for actually saying what they did out loud.
Random thoughts and highlights:
❥ My favorite character of the book was by far Gavin!! He's probably the CUTEST, FUNNIEST four year old ever. Some pf the things he did and said were just too cute and he never failed to
Imagine holding on to your virginity for 20 years only to loose it in a drunken, one-night-stand to a hot, but nameless guy at a fraternity party. Yes, lots of things suck about that previous statement, but then top it off with the biggest suck factor of all – Mr. Nameless apparently had some super-sperm that somehow escaped confines of the condom. Yes...more

This was a disappointing “DNF” for me. I was almost finished, had about 30 pages to go, but it was just too absurd to keep me any longer and I knew I had lost all patience. I was ready to scrap it about 30 pages in, but then it...more
At one point, I had tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard!!
5 AMAZING STARS!!!!!!!!
Short Summary: Claire is a college student who decides to lose her virginity at a frat party, but consequently ends up getting knocked up by Carter aka the one night stand. The crazy thing is Claire and Carter never exchanged names after Claire sneaks out the next morning. They never see each other again until 5 years later when Carter sho...more
I don't care that this was written originally as a Twilight fanfic and that people are pissed that the author pulled her stories from the free domain to publish them (seriously, all of you that gave the author one star for doing that NEED TO GROW UP!!! Why don't y'all just go lay that shit on the doorstep of EL James, considering that Fifty Shades was also originally written as a Twilight fanfic?!), people...more
I am in love. Yes, I have a total girl crush on Tara Sivec. Move over Christian Grey, I’m switching teams. I am ready to move near Tara and stalk her so I can be her best friend (and maybe lick her face a little. I love her that much). Or maybe it’s the characters she wrote I want to hang with. Or are they one in the same?

DNF for now.
I have to be in the right mood for this humor.
Just a little random example:
"I was going to stand next to every single woman in labor and every time a nurse or a doctor or hell, even the woman's husband said something stupid like, 'Just breathe through the pain,' it would be my job to squeeze the living fuck out of their reproductive organs until they were curled up in the fetal position asking for their mommies and I'd say, "Just breathe through the...more
3.5 stars. In summary, Claire and Carter met five-years earlier and had a drunken one-night stand that left her pregnant and neither of them knowing how to find the other. Five years later, a chance meeting brings these two together again.
This was a funny romance story, and I get why people are recommending it left and right, but it had way too much snarky, naughty, over-the-top 'bumper sticker' type humor for me. It was just toooo m...more
Seduction and Snacks was flipping hilarious and sexy as hell!
Have you ever had an instant connection and attraction to someone? You get each other jokes, have the same taste in movies and music, and are enthralled by their stories? We’ll that’s what Claire and Carter have when they meet five years ago at a college frat party. Claire decides from this connection that Carter would be the perfect guy to take her V-card and then she can move on and immerse herself in college again. Yes, Carter is dr...more
Oh. My. God! I’m not quite sure I know what to say…
This book was amazing! I don’t recall a time that I laughed so much while reading a book! I know there have been times, I just can’t think of any.
When I first saw this book around GR, I dismissed it due to its (slightly) cheesy cover. Then a friend sent me the link to the book and told me to check it out (thanks Alyssa!), so I did. I was excited to read it. I love stories where couples were separated and find each other again. Then I saw the mi...more
Warning: You'll laugh until you cry!!!
To say my weekend was bad, is an understatement. Problems at work and by Saturday afternoon I was slightly depressed... And then I picked this book!! Thank GOD and thank you Tara Sivec!
Hilarious and witty, addictive and funny, this book grabs you and smacks you down. It's offensive and opinionated, you can't help but agree at some points and at others...
The first chapter is the...more
OMG this book was HILARIOUS! I haven’t laughed so hard in a while. While this book was about Claire and Carter I think Gavin, the four year old stole the show. Every time Gavin talked about his weiner I felt the same emotions as Claire and Carter. I didn’t want to laugh, but sometimes you just couldn’t help it.
One of my favorite parts is when Gavin runs into the room to show everyone his new ”sword” (view spoiler)[her dildo (hide spoiler)] and Claire has to wrestle him for it in front of Carter...more

Seduction and Snacks was very first book, I’ve read by Tara Sivec and I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly she drew me into the story and made me forget all about the real world. I found myself laughing so hard my cheeks hurt and the stupid grin never fell of my face. It was very nice change after many emotional or dark reads....more
Okay well ever to me. I kept hearing about this book and hearing about it and then a very awesome friend of mine gifted it to me (thanks Trish!) and it was literally love at first line:
"Hello, my name is Claire Morgan and I never want to have children."
I laughed until I was in tears for most of this book. I highlighted so much that my kindle looked more yellow than the sepia color I read it with.
This book is GOLD and I loved every minute!
I started reading this at the airport while waiting for my husband’s flight to arrive. It was delayed 2 hours and honestly, I hardly even noticed. I was too busy laughing, snorting and nearly causing a scene. I definitely copped a few odd glances and had a smile on my face the whole time!.
Yes, this book is THAT fun...more
F**k me gently with a chainsaw ~ Heathers (1988)
This book was such a surprise hit for me. Don’t you love it when you browse GR and somehow a book catches your interest and then…BOOM! It turns out to be a great read? Well this story was one of those types of books. I’m so happy to have come across it.
It’s a pretty simple story. Claire is a 19 year old virgin when she first meets Carter at a fraternity party. They instantly hit it off without actually exchanging names. After all the...more
To sum it up: Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make i...more
Claire never wanted children, so getting knocked up after losing her V card in a one night stand at a frat party at the age of 20 wasn't part of her life plan. But 4 years later she is happy and her funny, adorable demon child fimly entrenched in her heart and although she still daydreams about her baby daddy (she really should have caught his name!) she never expected to see him again. Until she sees his eyes drunkenly staring at her from across the bar she works in...
My inner goddess tried explaining this to me, since she is currently bored because I don’t have a dysfunctional abuser in my life that can defeat me with his enormous&skilled penis….just a really sweet and ordinary fiancé. Poor little me. Erm….her….us! Whatever.
”Din, this book is funny because it has such a humongous amount of funny scenes!” she told me brightly.
Ah, well then. Ok.

I’ve written reviews talking about the best love scene in a book, the best pick up line in a book, the best marriage proposal in a book. Well, Seduction and Snacks is going to be awarded a few bests. First off, it is one of the best contemporary romances I’ve read. I wouldn’t say it has the best love scene, but it should definitely be awarded something for the funniest love scene. Not to mention, it is hands down THE funniest book I’ve ever read! Oh, and if there were an award for a book that ut...more
