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 throw out th

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 !

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:

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

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 re

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

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!

Carter drops his arms from my waist, and I jump around in horror at Gavin's scream.

This is the second part of Chocolate Lovers series, you must read the first Seduction and Snacks because this is continuation.

Claire, Carter and Gavin begin to form their own little family. They must learn to cope with new circumstances. How is it to live with other person and 4 year old child from hell. Of course it causes a lot of interesting situations. I do not know how the author comes up with these things, but I am full of admiration.

I didn't like this book as much as Seductions and Snacks. It was still funny, but It not as sexy as the first book . Overall, it was okay
I enjoyed this sequel just as much as the first one, maybe even a little more. It's pretty hilarious, full of crazy characters, and perfect for my mind in this crazy world. It's ridiculous, over the top, and full of inappropriate humor. It wouldn't be a book that everyone would enjoy, but I'm here for it!

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

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

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 an

It wasn't as funny as the first one but it's still hilarious! Gavin. This little kid is just so hilarious. He's the reason why I'm continuing this series. I swear, the funniest kid I've ever encountered in a book.

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

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.

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.

Each and every line in the book has something so fucking witty that it cracked me up.

How is it possible for this second book to be just as funny as the first? Wow, this was just as hilarious even more so at other times than Seductions and Snacks. I want to meet this author in real life, she has to be the funniest person ever. Two books that have me crack up laughing thats just awesome.

As much as I am a huge fan of Claire, I loved her so much in the first book she just cracked me up... I have to say Carter was SO FUNNY in this book. Anything from his pov was just lol convulsing

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!
i am a sucker for sarcastic books whether they are classics or contemporary. i myself write in a sarcastic way

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!

Can't believe this second book was as funny as the first one, Tara Sivec really knows how to keep the humor in every sentence. It was HILARIOUS.
I fell in love with every character, I even ended up loving Drew and Gavin? That kid never ceases to amaze me.
Futures and Frosting is one of the sweetest and funny books I have ever read, the "milk-pong" part had me bawling like a baby.

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:
