I wrote it, therefore it is awesome. The end.
Let me tell you a secret:
The hero of this books is not funny. He is not cute.
He is every woman’s nightmare.

He gets pissed off over you using his new sex swing (don’t ask, you really do not want to know) to calm down your screaming toddler.
He does not say anything nice to you. Like…ever.
His freaking penis can only get hard if you are slutty.
He calls you "Porno Jenny" in his mind.
He talks to your vagina. But not to you! Never to you! And never about important things!
He talks to his penis. Al

I love you too, vagina. I miss you like a hooker misses her virginity. True story. Why have you done me wrong,Boo? Why is there such a distance between us? Remember when we used to hang out every day? Now I barely see you once a month. You’ve changed,vagina. I hate to say this,but you have. You’re a different person now,and it’s like I don’t even know you. I thought maybe you were hanging around with a different crowd of people and they influenced you against

Tara Sivec is a comic genius!!

In Troubles and Treats we are propelled six years into the future with Drew and Jenny Parritt. Since the birth of their second child Drew and Jenny’s kinky sex life has become nonexistent. Jenny is just flat out exhausted. She really has her hands full,taking care of an infant and a preschooler, housework, and of course her job at S & S.

Drew is still the same, funny t-shirt wearing, sex craving, cl
Once again, welcome to the crazy family of friends. No, nothing has changed, they continue talking constantly about sex and do all kinds of indecent and "improperly" things.

This book is about Drew and Jenny, they have two children, and you don't believe me, they have problems in bed! It's all what this will be, what to do to once again light a fire in their relationship and bed. And you can be sure that it will be very funny.

In Seduction and Snacks, they all fell in love. In Futures and Frosting, their bonds were forged. In Troubles and Treats, the grass is definitely greener in other people’s bedrooms.
“When was the last time you guys had sex?” Claire asks.
“Um, what day is it today?”
“It’s Saturday,” Claire answers.
“Last year.”

This is the unconventional there’s-trouble-in-paradise story of Jenny and Drew, the wackiest members of our beloved lot, who finally get their own book to star in. We find them married,

I loved it. Drew and Jenny's story is way better than Carter and Claire's story. Funnier, sexier and more exciting. It would make an excellent romantic comedy movie.

Favorite scene - Drew and Jenny in the sex swing:

Jenny: "Yes, keep doing that! Rub my ass with your knee, you whore!"

Drew: "Who's my tramp? Who's my dirty hooker tramp?"

Jenny: "Me! Me! I'm your dirty hooker tramp! Pay me, big daddy, pay me!"

SON OF A BIRTHDAY CAKE! My fave line in this book! It take me a lot of time to finish this. I reserve it to get over my book hangover and ROFL on Drew and Jenny. I love book 1 & 2 more than this because I think there's more romance than just humor with Claire and Carter. Here I don't get the vibes of any romantic stuff just a super weird, crazy, kinky couple who's going on a dry spill after giving birth with their second child.

Jenny and Drew haven't had sex for a while and we get to hear the hilarious events that have contributed to this and what they attempt to do to solve it.

I feel bad for saying this but I just didn't like this book as much as the first two. Yes, all the shock jokes, crude lines and hysterical parts are still there but it just felt like the kind of joke that went on for too long and isn't as funny anymore. Don't get me wrong, I really like Drew and Jenny and to be honest, I probably like the

Troubles and Treats was a perfect addition to the Chocolate Lovers series!! I absolutely adored this book to pieces!! Tara Sivec proves once again that she can deliver a romantic comedy that's both sexy and laugh-your-ass-off hilarious. I loved absolutely every cringe-worthy moment and comedic sexy seduction Sivec included in this story. With a perfect blend of awesome characters and witty dialog, it's reading entertainment at its finest.

I still find this funny in some ways but Drew and Jenny kinda frustrated me. Sometimes I think their actions are stupid and funny at the same time. Who the F rocks a baby to sleep in a SEX SWING?! DAMN JENNY! HAHAHA!! It's not as funny as as Clare and Carter and I miss them. Especially Gavin (that one hilarious kid).

It's still a great book. I will miss all the characters' shenanigans.

This book has some serious LMAO ROTF moments. However, I could not buy into Drew and Jenny being actual parents. I love books one and two but I just couldn't buy into this one. Sorry folks.
First off, a HUGE ass THANK YOU TO TARA SIVEC for sending me the ARC of this highly anticipated story to add to the Chocolate Lovers Series.
I loved every moment of this book.

Who would have thunk that at the end of the day Drew would be my fav character. But boy am I glad I don’t have a man like him.

In Troubles and Treats you fast forward 6 years or so and Jenny and Drew have join the rest of the clan and have gotten hitched. They have 2 kiddos, one from a c-section and the other the old fashi

This was a fun, lighthearted, hilarious book! All the friends are back, but the focus of this book is Drew & Jenny & their lack of a sex life. After having their second child they have lost their romantic spark. I didn't love this one like I did the first two in the series, but I still really enjoyed it & love Tara Sivec's writing! It was lough out loud funny! :)

OMG! I cannot freakin wait for this book! LOVED the first two. Actually laughed out loud while reading... on the subway... more than once. Counting down the days.

I read this book in a day. I LOVED it! I do have to admit that I still loved the first two a little more, but I just think I related more to Claire as a narrator as opposed to Jenny. Don't get me wrong, it was still hilarious! The scene in the tent was freakin awesome!! I also found that i had a soft spot for Drew. Man was he clueless,

/Raise your hand if you have read Seduction and Snacks. Now raise your other hand if you have read Futures and Frosting. Now... if you are sitting there with both hands raised; First, put them down you look like a fool. And second, you MUST read Troubles and Treats. This was a totally fitting and EPIC end to a wonderful series.

Troubles and Treats is Jenny and Drew's story and takes place a few years after Futures and Frosting. A few years that have been both kind and unkind to the Parritt’s. When the story opens, we find Drew and Jenny in a bit of a… dry spell, trying to navigate life after a second baby. And, considering these two sexaholics sex life has taken a serious swan dive, I’d say they’re having some issues. The fact that Drew is plagued by nightmares of Jenny's vagina having teeth, a

I knew this book would be funny and it certainly was. I was laughing the whole way through. Drew and Jenny are hysterical! They are so outrageous, yet their troubles are so realistic.

I've been a fan of Jenny and Drew since the first book. I love Drew's t-shirt collection and I love that Jenny has vocabulary issues. Their eclectic sexual tastes crack me up. Aside from their humor, in this book we got to know this couple a little bit better. They aren't complex people, but they do have some very
