This book is amazing. And the author is so nice and pretty and nice.
Tough Critic Book Reviews
On the day of its release, I knew I needed to study instead of reading Futures & Frosting. So I made a deal with myself...I would only read F&F while in the bathroom. Well after 2 gallons of water and eating my weight in oatmeal...I finished. Yep, 24 hours spent in the bathroom with no sleep...Finished! Suck it loop holes!

I was absolutely terrified to read this book. It would be impossible for someone to be that funny two books in a row. Right? I mean how many vag one-liners can you thro...more

I don’t think any author has ever made me laugh as hard as Tara Sivec has in. my. life!!

I’m pretty sure I laughed more in a single page of this book than I have in the whole of most other books (and yes, I’m talking about the funny ones). I cried, snorted and howled with laughter (dignity be damned) and honestly, my cheeks still hurt from grinning.

Seriously, even the table of contents had me smiling:

Chapter 8: The Incredible Shrinking Penis
Chapter 14: Porn and Snozzberries
Chapter 15: Just Sa
F-U-C-K, A-S-S, S-H-I-T

My tummy hurts and I blame you for it ! Good god , you'd think Tara Sivec might have tamed her ways with her over the top comedy ( Which I love by the way ) but nooooooooooooooooo the woman just keeps getting better and better !

Futures and Frosting is just like the icing on top of a cake , make that chocolate cake , with a cherry on top and chocolate tid bits on the sides and also some melted chocolate drizzle for that extra flavor ! YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM !

Carter , Claire...more


I foresee huge girl fight in the near future over being Tara Sivec's new bff . I think I could win it because I'm a very scrappy fighter. Nearly every review I've seen of this book starts with the words: I'm in love with Tara Sivec, I want to be her bff, etc. And for good reason!! This is quite simply the funniest book I've ever read. I don't even know if I can put together a full review - I finished this book around 3 am last night and I'm...more

A book of everyday people who love madly, obsess in technicalities and despair, drink too much, curse aloud, can't control their children, want to hug and choke their friends, watch porn and work their asses off. A book about you or me or somebody who smiled you across the street!

It's comedy, it is supposed to be exaggerated!! Don't stick to the details, I enjoyed it so much because I let the events remind me of occasions that I wanted to throttle my parents, kill my friends or myself. It remin...more

Toss up between 1.5 and 2 stars

Oh where to start?

The first novel in this series I found humorous. There were parts I laughed so hard I couldn’t breathe. I loved Drew and Gavin because he reminded me a friend’s little boy. Reading the other reviews of Futures and Frosting I expected much of the same comedic style. And I wasn’t wrong. However, this time I found the humour in the book more annoying than enjoyable.

I liked Claire the first time around. I could identify with her as a mother who didn’t...more
My brain hurts from trying to process this constant fun-o-rama... I have never seen/read some many one-liners in one place. THE AGONY! OH, THE AGONY!

Edit: Why is this a freaking 4-5 star book on goodreads? :O
If any of you have read my review of Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec you will know that I made the mistake of reading that book in public. Holy hell! Wrong thing to do! Needless to say, I DID NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE AGAIN! Fool me once Ms. Sivec....

As expected, Futures and Frosting continues Claire and Carter's story and was just as piss your pants funny as the first book, Seduction and Snacks. I loved it. I’m not really going to write a detailed review for this one. I simply can’t come up with...more

Oh sweet Jesus. Sweet mother fucking fuckery of fucks

Seriously, Tara Sivec is a woman after my own heart. I said the same thing after reading her first book back in July and I stick by that statement even more so now. I was unattractively laughing and snorting countless amounts of times while I was reading this, that I had no choice...more

5++++++++++ Stars time infinity!

Carter drops his arms from my waist, and I jump around in horror at Gavin's scream.
"Never mind. I just spillded milk on it. I have a milk wiener now."

Seriously people, I have fallen in love with Tara Sivec and her Chocolate Lovers series. If her books were a dude I would shower him with hugs, kisses and maybe a bj here and there. To quote Barney Stinson of How I Met your Mother, Futures and Frostings was

This book picks up two months after the end of Seduction and Snacks and Carter, Claire and Gavin are settling in with being a family. Things are going well and the business is doing great but that doesn't mean everything is smooth sailing.

If you loved Seduction and Snacks, you will love this book. The same humor and outrageousness from Gavin and Drew continue but Claire really outdid herself in this one. After Liz and Jim's wedding, Claire catches the marriage bug big time and she thinks Carter...more

Futures and Frosting was SPECFREAKINGTACULAR! I am in loooooovvvveeee with Tara Sivec. Seriously, I need us to be best friends. Just by reading her novels, I can tell that she is one of the funniest people on this planet.

I'm not sure if I want to read this and ruin the Claire and Carter's perfect ending. Hmm.....

5++++ STARS

A continuation of Seduction and Snacks , after Gavin and Claire have moved in with Carter. Gavin has a daddy noq and loves living with both of his parents. It's now time for Claire to meet Carter's parents, but every opportunity leads to an unfortunate event when Claire is either drunk social posting or playing the equivalent of food softball in the house.

Lots of misunderstandings, miscommunications and pot cookies, cause a bit of strain in the relationship. And of course Gavin and h...more
Oh, sweet Jesus I have never laughed so hard in my life!!!! I embarrassed myself in the carpool line, the grocery store, and even in front of my own children as I had random bouts of hysterical laughing to the point of tears as I read this. I think people are probably under the impression that I've gone mental as they watched me staring at my iPhone guffawing like a lunatic, practically peeing my pants. But that's okay, because I freaking loved it!!! I apologize in advance for anyone opposed to...more

After a few months of moving in with the love of her life and the father of her child, Claire is blissfully happy. I mean yeah his snoring drives her to the brink of murder and finding his best friend passed out drunk on her sofa far more frequently then she would like drives her a little insane, but they are mature adults right? They can move past these obstacles and find their happily ever after, no well meaning but crazy friends, bizarre family members or fake porn addictions can tear apart t...more

I had a major "MOMENT" when I realized that the second book in the Chocolate lovers series was out! The first book Seduction and Snacks was so funny and sweet; I was a HUGE fan of Claire and Carter's! So when I was sitting at home and found out is was released early I squeeeed like a freak, dropped everything I was doing and immediately dived in. I'm happy to say that this book was just as fanfriggentastic as the first one!!! It was flipping hilarious.

I found this book to be a perfect continuati...more

Expect the unexpected. Prepare to Green Fart while rolling on the floor laughing. Ms. Sivec ends this series with a lot of Vagina Hand applause. Reading this book is like watching a Romantic Comedy movie with a bunch of popcorn & a liter of soft drink to spoil your kidney, totally relaxing! From lock doors phone call while talking to God, epic fail proposal, and C-section delivery, means start to finish you'll laugh ou...more

I WANT MORE OF THIS BOOK and I don't know which book is funnier, Seduction and Snacks or Futures and Frosting, Hence I will re-read Seduction and Snacks again and judge in which book did I laugh and pee in my pants more :P

Each and every line in the book has something so fucking witty that it cracked me up.
Gavin is a crazy ass kid, I LOVE HIM! Like seriously, I pray that when I have a kid 8-10yrs down the line, He is JUST LIKE GAVIN!!

So I put on a special shirt for the occasion of writing my review for Tara Sivec’s Futures and Frosting (Chocolate Lovers #2). / I know I’ve talked about my girl crush on Tara before. This book, it made me happy down to my dumbo eared vagina. I had some stalker tendencies before when it came to Tara, but now I want to stalk everyone she knows so I can find out who the characters are based on.

Futures and Frosting is like The Hangover,...more

Following on from the stomach-achingly hilarious Seduction and Snacks, this book carries on all of the ridiculous, vulgar hilarity that we loved the first time around.

Claire and Carter are back with the always brilliant Gavin, and their friends and families. There are some surprises thrown into the story, a few ‘OMG she did NOT just say that!!!’ moments, and of course lots of scenes that had me crying with laughter – Gavin in a church, sex in the bathroom of a m...more

Futures and Frosting by Tara Sivec

This book is so funny! really guys do not read in public!! i loved all the characters. Gavin was cuter than ever! at the beginning you can see that the comedy and the jokes were forced and fake! but as you keep reading you see the the writer got back to writing as she did in the first one! i loved the style, it was so light, funny, sexy, and sarcastic!

Another fabulously funny book in the Chocolate Lovers series. All I can say is that if you haven't read these books yet and are looking for more of a romantic comedy (emphasis on the word comedy) then this series is for you.

Here are two of my favorite parts, but there are so many in this book you will just have to pick it up and have a good laugh for yourself!

“Whoa dude… You just said f-u-c-k in front of the Virgin Mary. Show some respect,” Drew scolds.
“What’s a virgin?” Gavin ask...

I loved this book almost as much as Seduction and Snacks. Claire, Carter, Gavin and co are back for a hilarious ride that made me laugh till my jaw and belly hurt with a few snorts thrown in. Again, this book needs to come with a “Do not Read in Public” warning. Well unless you want funny stares or warning for public indecency when you pee yourself from laughing. Saying that though, I thought there was a more serious tone at times in this one, which made me feel kind of soppy and mushy.

My face hurts and if that whole laughing-burns-calories thing is true, I can avoid the gym for the next week!

Futures and Frosting was yet another great, solid, hilarious book from Tara Sivec! That woman knows how to make a person laugh; she seriously needs to make one of those daily calendars for my desk so I can have a giggle 365 days a year. Or maybe she can get a job writing for one of those 3o minute sitcoms or come to my local Funny Bone Comedy Club. I don't know what I really want from her...more
I loved 'Seduction and Snacks' - it was sassy, hilarious and plain ol' good times. Tragically, its followup, 'Futures and Frosting', was absolutely awful (although it would seem I am solidly in the minority on this one). I found the "humor" was immature, OTT and cringe-worthy - and the story was just one uncomfortable situation after another. In fact reading this was very much like trying to find the "Benjamin Wu balls" amongst all the inappropriate crap:

Autumn Review
I loved Seduction and Snacks pretty hardcore, so I was thrilled that I didn't have to wait long for Futures and Frosting. F&F was just as funny as I had expected. This book continues on with Claire and Carter living life, for real.

Claire and Carter are now settled in the real world of a relationship. The hearts and flowers are still there, but the day to day routine of what life is like as a couple sets in. Of course, they are still wildly in love, but it takes some adjusting. Then, they ea...more
Now that deserves an applause!!!

Seduction and Snacks was absolutely great and I was not sure whether the second book in the series was going to be equally entertaining but I could't me more wrong. Futures and Frosting was absolutely hilarious and I mean
