"I’m pregnant."

Molly Gilmore had a good life before she uttered those two stupid words. While preparing to graduate from culinary school and building up the courage to make a move on her hot, sugar-cookie-smelling pastry instructor Marco, she can't wait to finally have the GREAT life she’s always dreamed about, instead of just the good one she’s been living.

Baking and Babies is the final book in the Chocoholics/Chocolate Lovers Series. It’s bittersweet for me. These are characters I’ve been reading about for a long time. I love the family, the friendship, and the hilarity of their crazy antics. The original Chocolate series is one of my favorite funny series. I recommend those books to anyone looking for a laugh. And the spin offs about the main characters children have been fantastic as well. Baking and Babies is Molly Gilmore’s (Liz and J

Nope, nope, nope, GOD no!

Gah, I just couldn't do it. I tried (not too hard, but I did!).
This book started at a 3 star rating, went to a 2.5 pretty fast, and I stopped before it went lower than 2 stars.

I just couldn't! Gah, the characters were idiots!! And after the main male character said It's so not funny that I think a little pee might have come out of me I had to give up after a few more pages (when he says the same thing with different words).

I get that it's all suppose to be funny-haha

4.5 stars!!

“Even if you plan it all out and follow everything to a T, life will fuck you right up the ass. Without lube.”

Tara went back to her roots with Baking and Babies and while I have absolutely loved her “serious” writing, while reading this book I had forgotten just how much I missed her comedic voice. This book had me in stitches, I had tears of laughter and I have not had that for a very, very, very long time.

4.25 stars. NOOOOO!!!! I didn't realize this was the end!?!? What the hell am I gonna do without my seduction and snacks gang?? I really was hoping for Sophia, Billy, and Veronica's story. Oh well, I loved Molly and Marco. They are too cute and hilarious for words. I feel that the book should be longer though. It was sort of rushed at the end. But otherwise, I loved this series!

Several years ago, I picked up Seduction & Snacks, and laughed so hard, I literally woke up my whole family. Some 600 books later, that book and this series, is still one of the funniest things I've ever read. So it's a bit bittersweet saying goodbye to this group, but I think Tara gave them the proper send off.

Like all of the books before, there are a lot of laughs and yes, some awkward situations that are so out there, they can only come from Tara's whacky brain. But I'm not goin

This book was hysterical but I really missed the connection of the two main characters I'm used to getting with this author.

And the steam was all talk and no/very little action.

This book finishes off the crazy group of Seduction & Snacks. It is just as much fun as all the rest of the series.
Our heroine is the quiet one of the group. She has worked hard at culinary school and has finally graduated. Our hero is her teacher and has been waiting for her to graduate so he can ask her out. But, first he has to pose as the fake daddy for her fake pregnancy.
Hilarious with excellent characters!

Romantic Comedy. Standalone storyline, but you should read the others to fully know the characters. 
Disclaimer: NO BABIES WERE BAKED in this book. The author may have been baked, the characters may have gotten baked (Grandma!), but there were no babies near ovens.

Dear God I haven't laughed that much since... Seduction and Snacks. Seriously, my husband and kids went in the other room numerous times to get away from my obnoxious snorting, hyena laughter.

If you haven't read this series you are seriously missing out.
Disappointment written all over it.

I love the Chocolate Lovers series, and I love these crazy characters to pieces. It's only the Chocoholics spin-off that left me with a bitter meh taste, and this last book made everything even worse.

Immature, implausible and way-over-the-top jokes, forced storylines and just silly characters, at the end it felt as if I were grasping for straws. The wedding just killed it for me.

Tara Sivec I love your writing and sarcasm and I'll keep reading your books, but,

‘I’m putting Marco’s penis in my mouth tonight and nothing is going to stop me.’

Well Fuck A Duck that was HILARIOUS, but honestly did I expect anything else from my favorite versatile author. Tara Sivec has proven over and over again she can go from crass humor to heartbreaking angst to suspense to erotic with the blink of an eye. I am not sure there is not a genre she couldn’t write (come on who wouldn’t love a children’s book written by her.)

It's hard to get my brain wrapped around just how much I loved Baking and Babies. Tara Sivec ended up the Chocolate Lovers/Chocoholics series with a bang and tears were shed by me and I'm owning it. This series is always my first go-to when someone wants a romantic comedy or when I need a quick pick me up. I feel connected to all of the characters and absolutely adored every word.

All we really knew about Molly Gilmore is that she's basically a ninja; stealth, quiet and sneaks up on her family sp
I can't remember the last time I was so sad a series finally ended. It started with the absolutely CRAZY ASS characters in Seduction and Snacks and then into the spin off series, Chocholics. This series has made me laugh so hard and frankly be grateful that my own family as dysfunctional as it is is nowhere near Clair and Liz's. Best friends till the end and now actual family, the crazy antics that I have loved to read about in the 2 series has finally ended and all I can say is ... what a ride!

I was shocked, surprised, and fell totally in love with Chocolate Lovers series and that continued with this Chocoholics Series. They never cease to take me places I never thought anyone would go, surprise me, make me laugh, and look at the world just a little bit differently. This is one of those books where you catch wind of the plot and actions of the main characters and it makes you cringe and think this idea is just so bad that there is little to no chance of a good outcome.

When you read a Tara Sivec book, or more specifically a Chocoholics book there are certain things you expect and Baking & Babies does not disappoint. If you are wondering what those expectations are let me explain. Tara Sivec can write some of the most inappropriate, disturbing, pee yourself from laughing so hard, can’t breathe funny ass shit.

Seriously. I adore the heck out of Tara's RomComs. I'm not even going to try to play coy and pretend they're just alright. I pee my pants. I get dirty looks from the family for laughing and snorting so much. I say ridiculous crap that no one in their right mind has a clue about what I'm saying all because...

Molly Gilmore knew helping her sister out by pretending to be pregnant, to cover Charlotte’s pregnancy would be a huge mistake. Especially when she ends up roping in the guy she has been crushing on for two years and the only progress she has made is sneakily taking a whiff of him. She knows Marcus is bound to right screaming once he encounters her certifiably insane family, especially when they think he has knocked her up and yet…he seems to fit right in, Molly can’t help thinking, should she

Fun fact about Tara Sivec. We all know she's hilarious and those that know her also know she's slightly insane. What you might not know is this woman is humble AF. I, once again, had the honor to beta read this book for Tara. And every step of the way, she would send a chapter or two and each email or message would come with a warning because Tara was convinced she had lost her funny mojo.

Well let me tell you- she has not. Tara has been writing much heavier and even darker stuff lately but that

I am so sad to see the end of this series................but seriously Tara did an amazing job giving us one last hooray and send off for these characters. I fell in love with the parents in the original series and have to say that the kids have been just as much fun to read. The whole idea of the next generation and that fact that grew up around such amazing and hilarious parents.

Ok hands down the best part of this book has to be Marco and his titled position of "Minivan Operator"!! I will not

I am so very sad to say goodbye to these characters. This series from Tara has made me laugh till I cried. Seduction and Snacks was the book that led me to Mz. Sivec and my life had never been the same. This is my go to series when the day is gloomy and I need a laugh! I recommend it more than any other series I have ever read and as a blogger that is a lot!

I love this sequel series, just as much as I loved the Chocolate Lovers series. But maybe, just maybe, this one, Chocoholics, was more fun to read. From the first words of the author and the prologue to epilogue I laughed so much, and since this is the last book in the Seduction and Snacks world I may have had some water in my eye in the end.
I really love the dynamics in the group, the "stupidness" too, and there was a lot of it. This series, its characters and stories are the best to read when

Molly Gilmore has always been the quiet ninja within the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics clan, and thriving to stay out of the mess that her family her. However, when her sister Charlotte finds out that she is pregnant - a couple of weeks before her wedding - and the groom finds her and Molly with a pee-stick in hand, Molly has to jump in and pretend to be pregnant on her behalf...

Cue Marco Desoto, Molly's culinary teache
Really disappointed in this book. First 50% was about Marco meeting, and being accepted by the family. But as the man that knocked up their unmarried daughter, every conversation was all threats in some sort to make life hard for him. I know that some people think its fun when the father is threatening the boyfriend of their daughter with them having a shotgun, but I have always found it extremely off putting, and respectless for everyone involved, so therefore it did not interest me in any way ...more
