Claire decides to lose her virginity and with a guy she meets at a college frat party. Several weeks later she finds out she pregnant and not only didn't she get the guy's name but now she can't find him. Fast forward five years and suddenly that guy turns up at the bar she's working at.

This is on the warning on the blurb: "profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse" and that is certainly true. There is also a lot of pretty crass humor and no one has a filter so you can imagine the things that are said! And it is constant throughout the book...there is no down time. It's almost as if the book was written by a guy...all the one liners, the movie lines and the songs. I can understand why some people had a hard time with it. Some of the things in the beginning were too over the top but...there are sooo many hilarious things that you can't help but laugh.

Liz, Claire's best friend , and Claire just start up a business in this book called Seduction and Snacks. Claire makes the Snacks, chocolates and other bakery type items, and Liz sells the Seduction...aka sex toys and items. It's starts out good but you can't help but wonder how it will go. Besides the business and getting things going, there really wasn't any drama. We did get a bit of a run in with Carter's ex but that's it.

The main thing that I loved about the book was the romance between Carter and Claire. It was just so sweet how they kept looking for each other and how they felt. When they picked things back up, it was as if no time had gone by...except they had a four year old. I also loved how Carter took to being a Dad and how both him and Gavin talked in their sleep!

All their friends are really great and they all just fit together. I love the couples together and can't wait to see where it goes for them especially Jenny with the way she messes up words and Drew with his t-shirts. Liz and Jim are adorable and Jim is sort of the quiet one so I'm keeping my eye on him.

Gavin was priceless...and also a handful!! It made me thankful that I never had to put up with all the things he did or said but it did remind me of some of the hilarious things my son said when he was little.

Claire's Dad, George, was also interesting and a little scary! I like how things are going with him and look forward to seeing where they go.

I had to read the blurb for the next book Futures and Frosting and I'm not happy but what can you do? I guess there has to be drama.

**On a side note, I heard that this was a twilight fan fiction and I'm hard pressed to find many similarities. Claire lived with her overprotective father, there are three couples and some of the characters share the same traits but I only noticed that after I was really trying to find something.


Favorite quotes (There's no way I could add them all and already most of the good ones have been posted so here's a few others):

♦ "I HAD QIVERING LOINS!"

♦ "Muffins in the basement."

♥ "I need to kiss her. I need to kiss her like I need to breathe."

“Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do, watcha gonna do when they cut your wiener,” Gavin sang as he pointed his gun at random objects.
“Wow, cops have gotten pretty hardcore lately” Carter muttered.”

i like it....there are sooo many funny parts, some are a bit much so i can see why people didn't like it.


=^☺^=mskitty I think you have to have a South Park or Bevis and Butthead type of sense of humor...or have a little boy that reminds you of Gavin....I have both! lmfao!


Sharon ✽ is an emotional book junkie ✽ the things Gavin says bust me up...especially when he is sleeping!
