Start your review of Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers, #1)

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

Tara vagina salutes you

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

Okay guys, this is, hands down, the most HILARIOUS romance I have ever read!!!!

No book has EVER made me laugh this hard. I giggled, squeed, snorted, and cried with laughter to the point where Id have to stop reading in order to catch my breath!! PURE FUN!

But the best part was that it wasnt 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
UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

Seduction and Snacks is one of - if not the - funniest book Ive ever read. Its an irreverent look at single parenting, dating, finding true love and well, its 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 that

★★★★ 4 memorable and funny-as-hell STARS.

My main reaction while reading this book was pretty much this:

Or 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

H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S! SEDUCTION AND SNACKS is a fantastic laugh-out-loud romance that will leave you snickering down to the final words of the book!

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.

This Is The Most Hilarious Book I've Ever Read!!!! Hands Down!!!

At one point, I had tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard!!

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

This seems to be a love it or hate it type book, and for me it was just so-so. It was funny in places, sure. There were a few times that I belly laughed. But to be honest, I think the author relied so heavily on potty humor, I felt like I was watching an eight hour episode of South Park. Crude can be funny, but my GOSH, it was so overdone! Shock value only lasts so long, and then its no longer's repetitive and uncomfortable.

I like how Claire describes her desire to never have
Stacia (the 2010 club)
I tried. This one just isn't going to work. Swearing and sex doesn't bother me (obviously, if you know me) but this book reminds me of a preteen who's just decided that he'll seem really awesome if he manages to fit in every raunchy word possible in the telling of one story - it's called trying too hard to be entertaining. The jokes are drowning in the attempt to look youthful and cool.

Um, a hilarious rom-com about second chance romance with plenty of smut and a whole shit load of chocolate?? To this, I say...


I was a little skeptical about reading this book because I don't typically like books that involve surprise pregnancies or kiddos in general. I prefer my fiction escapes not to mirror my real life as a mom.



Anywho in this story, a drunken one night stand leads to a loss of virginity, a surprise pregnancy, and absolutely no idea as to the identity of the man with the

I am in love. Yes, I have a total girl crush on Tara Sivec. Move over Christian Grey, Im 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 its the characters she wrote I want to hang with. Or are they one in the same?

Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec is hands down my new favorite book. I laughed so much during this book scary

Let me just scream this at the top of my lungs, "BEST BOOK OF THE FREAKIN' YEAR" for me!!!

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
How, in the name of all that is holly can people call this book funny?

My inner goddess tried explaining this to me, since she is currently bored because I dont 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.! Whatever.

Din, this book is funny because it has such a humongous amount of funny scenes! she told me brightly.

Ah, well then. Ok.

Argh! I just lost a review I spent nearly an hour writing. :-(

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

This book was a huge, HUGE let down. Let me say that I have been saving this book for a rainy day, a day when I needed a funny book to lift me up and put a smile on my face. When I started this book I was very hopeful. However, I soon discovered that this book was not for my taste.

First of all, you know in comedies how there is a funny person and a straight man? This book had no straight man. Both characters were just off the wall and so similar that if it wasn't for the "he" or

Book starts with Claire who never wants kids. Ever. She meets the nameless sperm donor (Carter) whom she looses her virginity to at a frat party. They both search for each other after the fact to no avail. Five years later fate(or his job) brings Carter to Claire's home town....

This book was amazing! I dont recall a time that I laughed so much while reading a book! I know there have been times, I just cant 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 mixed

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? Well thats 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

I loved, loved, loved, this book! Absolutely hilarious! I wanted to hang out with these people, have some drinks, have some laughs, and of course eat some chocolate. Chocolate covered potato chips, never had them, but now I'm craving them. This is a book I finished and then immediately purchased the next book in the series. I guess this probably isn't for everybody, but if you have a sense of humor, and it's a little crude, you will absolutely love this book!

“And let’s face it people, no one is ever honest with you about child birth. Not even your mother.       “It’s a pain you forget all about once you have that sweet little baby in your arms.”     Bullshit.   I CALL BULLSHIT.   Any friend, cousin, or nosey-ass stranger in the grocery store that tells you it’s not that bad is a lying sack of shit.   Your vagina is roughly the size of the girth of a penis.   It has to stretch and open andturn into a giant bat cave so the life-sucking human you’ve been growing for nine months can angrily claw its way out.   Who in their right mind would do that willingly?   You’re just walking along one day and think to yourself, “You know, I think it’s time I turn my vagina into an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar (minus the cheddar) and saddle myself down for a minimum of eighteen years to someone who will suck the soul and the will to live right out of my body so I’m a shell of the person I used to be and can’t get laid even if I pay for it.” 441 likes
