Blog Tour Stop: Love and Lists by Tara Sivec

Love and Lists by Tara Sivec
Book 1 in the Chocoholics Series
A fun, sexy, hilariously laugh out loud spinoff of the Chocolate Lovers Series

 Love and Lists is the first book in the Chocolate Lovers spinoff ­ Chocoholics: The foul­mouthed offspring tell their stories.

Twenty­five­year­old 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 to­do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is one­hundred­percent on board: after a few six packs.

After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a Sex­Ed 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 "to­do" item...

Please excuse me while I take a break to wipe my eyes because I'm laughing so hard that I can't stop crying. Seriously, y'all, Tara Sivec is a comedic genius and I can't get enough of her characters! In Love and Lists we get to know older, sexier, completely grown up and still as hysterical Gavin Ellis.

-You're also probably wondering how in the hell I can possibly be twenty-five years old when just yesterday I was four. I know, it's a tough pill to swallow. I'm not a foul-mouthed, cute little kid anymore. I'm now a foul-mouthed, cute adult. I take after my parents, so obviously I'm good looking. -

Even better, he's in love, but he can't bring himself to admit it to the woman he loves, who just so happens to be one of his best friends, Charlotte. Being the child of Carter and Claire, it's only natural for laugh out loud events to unfold as he tries to woo the girl of his dreams.

-"Yes, and you used to stand up in the middle of the tub and say, 'Hey, Charlotte, look at my big wiener!' I hope that's not what your next plan of attack is," ~Claire-

-"She's probably completely disgusted with me right now. I pulled her hair, puked in her lawn, and now I'm dating a pretend woman with big boobs." ~Gavin-

See!! I could go on and on for days about this book, but I want you to read it for yourself so you can experience the magic that Tara brings to the table. And when you're done, report back to me and tell what you thought about a certain kitchen scene. A scene that had me laughing so hysterically that I almost woke my husband up from shaking the bed with my laughs. We also get the pleasure of seeing the whole gang again, Claire, Carter, Jim, Liz, Drew, and crazy ass Jenny. You also get to meet Gavin's hilarious Bronie (awesome!) best friend Tyler and Charlie's spitfire younger sister, Ava.

This was me all throughout the book...

There were also some super steamy scenes that I loved! Gavin is smokin' in the bedroom and I loved every single second of it!

So what are you waiting for?! Get to one-clicking, but don't blame me when you're abs are sore from copious amounts of laughter!!
