Happy Release Day for Baking and Babies by Tara Sivec

Today is finally the day we have been leading up to.  Baking and Babies by Tara Sivec is the final entry in the Chocoholics series.  This book is a fine finish with all the laughs and feels that have come with both the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics series’.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  With this book you will be having a great start to your weekend!  If you haven’t picked up any of these you truly are missing out!

untitledBook Blurb:

“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.

Always known as the quiet ninja, she fully intends to stay hidden in the shadows with her nut-job family, so they have no chance to embarrass her around the man she’s crushed on for two years. Unfortunately, her family has other plans. When they yank her straight out of her comfort zone, she finds herself starring in the craziest train wreck she’s ever witnessed.

Molly ultimately gets a more exciting life that doesn’t revolve around school, but she’s pretty sure the man of her dreams won’t be sticking around long after her family gets ahold of him. There aren’t too many guys who can handle smelling like pee, having the whole world know how he masturbates, and being forced to eat an entire bag of dicks.

Join the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics gang for one final story about love, baked goods, making poor life choices, and remembering how important family is—even if they drive you insane.

Mostly because it’s illegal to kill them.

Review:

Molly has always managed to be the quiet one around her crazy family.  When she finally graduates from culinary school she is finally free to go after the one man she has been wanting to be with for the past two years.  That is until she volunteers to say she is pregnant for one of her sisters.  When Marco, her crush, over hears he volunteers to pretend to be the baby daddy.  Through this complicated charade Marco and Molly get closer and really learn things about each other and each other’s crazy families.  Learning everything from Marco’s masturbation habits, what meat sweats are and why Drew is taking a dump in the bushes.  Can Marco and Molly navigate the crazy or will it tear them apart?

I really loved Marco and Molly’s story.  I think it took all the crazy and wrapped it up in one awesome story.  I think the fact that they both had crazy families was fantastic.  Marco was the first true outsider entering the inner circle of this family.  His character fit so well it was as if he was meant to be there.  Marco’s relationship with the guys really was probably the cherry on top.  Not to mention the masturbating meerkat, puke on a penis and a ganga growing grandma.  That’s just a taste of the awesomeness of this story.  You are guaranteed to laugh out loud and possibly have a few tears at the fact that this is the last one.

Release Day Party:
I’ll be having a party all day on Friday to celebrate the release with several giveaways, including a Kindle Fire, special Baking & Babies swag, etc. This will take place on my Facebook Author Page so if you could direct people there, that would be great: https://www.facebook.com/TaraSivec.authorpage

Day Six of Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today is the last day before the release of Baking and BabiesTattoos and Tatas  is a novella in the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholic series. This is a book that tests the friendship between Claire and Liz.  What happens when the unexpected makes you question everything in your life?  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

22728057Book Blurb:

During the month of October, 100% of the proceeds from Tattoos and Tatas will be donated to breast cancer awareness.

Claire and Liz have always had a friendship that defied the test of time, but when one of them is diagnosed with a disease that every woman fears, their bond is put through the wringer. How do you cope knowing your soul mate could be taken from you?

Filled with memories of their life long friendship, inappropriate behavior, bad tattoos and shaving cats, the two friends will realize that laughter really is the best medicine.

Tattoos and TaTas is not your typical love story; it’s a story of friendship and learning how to let go when something is beyond your control.

Review:

Claire and Liz have been friends since high school.  They have been through thick and thin.  All the challenges of marriage, children, their business and everything in between.  But, nothing prepares them for the big C.  This will test them more than anything.  As they work through the trials of the present, the past will be remembered.  As with all of their trials they will be met with tears, laughter and lots of inappropriate comments.

This story really hit home for me.  I have experience with the big C and know how tough all of this is.  I think this really attacks a sensitive subject with respect and humor.  It addresses how people handle things differently especially when they cant control the outcome.  I did cry at times but most of all I laughed out loud.  I loved how in the end everyone came together and were just there.  It truly shows the strength of friendship and the love between friends.  In the heart of all of these books are the friendships and how important they are.

Day Five of the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today we get to celebrate with the second book in the Chocoholics series, Passion and Ponies.   This is one of the most fun books that Tara Sivec has written.  She explored the world of Bronies and brought into a world where most differences have the chance of being pointed out and laughed at.  That doesn’t happen…well it doesn’t happen much.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

20642915Book Blurb:

Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods.

Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem – the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction.

While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places – Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed, her a$$ and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting “Friendship is magic!” during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him.

Review:

Ava’s fling with Tyler was only supposed to be just that.  How could she want to be with a man obsessed with animated ponies?  Aside from her confusion with Tyler she is having a major crisis with her job.  She works for her mom’s company but hates it.  So, between her figuring out what she really wants to do, having hot sex with Tyler and trying to figure out their crazy relationship she is one busy girl.  Soon things change, when Tyler is given some life altering information she finds herself being the one to comfort him and she wouldn’t want it any other way.  Can Ava and Tyler find a way to balance each other’s needs or will it fall apart?

I really loved seeing Ava and Tyler’s relationship grow.  It was a really fun part of Gavin’s story but it really grew into something great.  You really saw how they brought the best out of each other.  I know this sounds a lot sappier than the other books but it certainly isn’t.  All the humor of the rest of the books is found in this.  In fact, Tyler is a lot like Drew.  You would almost think they shared one brain.  Along with the requisite humor is some really steamy sex including accidental anal (don’t worry you’ll understand)  and MLP dress up.  This was definitely one of the most unique books in either of the series’.  You will love the mix of laughter and heart.

Day Four of the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today we are celebrating with the first in the Chocoholics series, Love & Lists.  This is the first in the spinoff from the Chocolate Lovers series.  We get to see how Claire, Carter, Liz, Jim, Jenny and Drew’s kids have grown up.  This book focuses on Gavin and Charlotte.  The two have grown up together but never had the guts to tell each other how they feel.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for more Chocoholics!

18300604Book Blurb:

Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Ellis has always had the love and support of his family ever since he was a little boy and couldn’t stop talking about his penis. He’s also always had their unsolicited advice and uncanny knack of embarrassing him at all costs. Now that he’s an adult and trying to convince the love of his life to love him back, things haven’t changed very much from when he was younger.

When Gavin’s best friend Tyler suggests he make a to-do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is one-hundred-percent on board: after a few six packs.

After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a Sex-Ed course gone wrong, and a slew of other mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure this list will be the death of him.

Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn’t always the best idea. Especially when “Show her your penis” is the first “to-do” item

Review:

Gavin, the little boy who couldn’t stop cursing and talking about his penis, has grown up and become very successful working for his mom and Aunt Liz’s company.  The one thing missing in his life is love.  His heart has always belonged to Charlotte, his Aunt Liz and Uncle Jim’s daughter.  Gavin and his friend, Tyler, decide that he is going to make a list and make Charlotte fall in love with him.  The list goes from buying her lingerie, showing her his penis and many other inappropriate things that Tyler insists upon.  Gavin soon learns that the best things happen once the list is thrown out the window and his way too open best friend is ignored.

I loved this book.  It is reminiscent to the first Seduction and Snacks book.  Gavin though different from his parents still has the same pinache as a combination of Claire and Carter.  The love story between Charlotte and Gavin is very sweet.  Well, not just sweet but also pretty awkward at times.  This is especially true when Charlotte decides to seduce Gavin with mustard.  Its hilarious but sweet too.  One of the best parts of this book is the introduction of Charlotte, her sisters and Tyler.  I couldn’t ask for better supporting characters that fit so well in a world built on inappropriate sharing, sex toys and naked times that should never be shared.  This was a great addition to the Chocolate Lovers world.

Day Three of Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today we are celebrating with the third book in the Chocolate Lovers series, Troubles and Treats.  This book centers around Jenny and Drew.  Throughout their relationship the one department they have never had trouble in is the bedroom.  Now that they have two kids that has changed.  All Drew wants is his old sex kitten of a wife back and all Jenny wants is some sleep.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have an awesome week ahead and be sure to keep coming back because we will have plenty more for our celebration.

23016369Book Blurb:

Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives – well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.

With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren’t on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack, and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.

Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the discontented duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple’s lives.

In the third and final installment of the Chocolate Lovers Series, will Drew and Jenny find the spark that’s been missing in their marriage, or will the trouble they’re having cause a stickier situation than the time Jenny poured honey all over Drew and he fused himself to a tree?

Review:

Drew and Jenny’s crazy sex life has become non-existent since their second child was born.  Drew is determined to remind Jenny what they were like and go back to it.  Jenny just wants sleep and some help around the house.  When they go to their friends for help they offer advice but most of it is unhelpful for the couple who has done it all and a lot more in and out of the bedroom.  Can Drew finally get the point and help Jenny and will Jenny be able to find her way back to their very non-vanilla sex?

I love Drew and Jenny.  All of the characters in this series are unique and quite awesome, but Drew and Jenny take the cake.  With their outlandish stories, inappropriate behavior and Jenny’s inability to know most of the English language puts them in a category all to themselves.  I found that this book brought them to a more relatable level.  Most people aren’t going to have the sex that they have but in this book the issues the married with children couple have are incredibly relatable and common.  I loved how that though their issues became attainable it didn’t change how they approached things.  They were still the same old crazy Drew and Jenny.  This is another laugh out loud story that just makes me want to take Tara Sivec out to a bar and have outlandish conversations with her.
