Review: Love and Lists (Chocoholics #1) by Tara Sivec


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

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...


Just when we thought we had seen the last of these crazy families, enter their children!
Gavin is determined to show Charlotte that she is the love of his life.  We all know what that means.  Enter the foul-mouthed mishaps begin! 
"She has no idea that every time I'm within three feet of her my penis perks up like a meerkat when it hears a noise.  It's fucking Meerkat Manor in my pants,  My penis is like a magnet and she's a hot piece of steel."
Yes, Gavin has not lost his obsession with the penis.  How can he with his Uncle Drew around to only encourage said obsession!  Between Tyler's influence and Drew and Jenny's influence... There is guaranteed laughs throughout this book!
I didn't think that Tara could top or match The Chocolate Lovers Series... I was wrong.  She pretty much matched it with this one!  I laughed so hard at times, I thought I might crack a rib!  I love these kids as adults!  They are definitely the products of their parents!  There is no doubting that!
"Oh I'm pretty sure your penis has other ideas.  He's like an angry armadillo trying to claw his way out of a bunker right now."
Don't think that you will not get enough of the old gang either!  They are here in this book in full force.  All embarrassing themselves and the children everywhere you turn!  I do have to say that I am a big Drew fan.  He and Jenny are just so dumb and funny, how can you not love them?
