Claire is a 20-something, single mom who grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.
With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim-to-none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.
Warning: Contains explicit sex, profanity, and enough sarcasm to choke a horse.

I'm the romantic fiction junkie in our little foursome; both straight and lesbian, after listening to the novella Tattoos and TaTas I wanted to get all of Tara Sivec's Chocolate series. Okay so I'm happy now this was the only one we purchased this time. There were far too many vanilla sex scenes that mainly served to take up time and did very little to advance the story. Speaking of which, it took way too long for the obvious identity of the protagonists to be revealed in the book. Plus Gavin, the kid was out of control and like too many fictional kids he never got corrected by his parents; for some reason too many authors think this funny. I realize that it's easier to be write interesting fiction for three hours than it is for ten but after the novella this book was a huge disappointment. Despite this, there were enough really good moments in this one that I'd still make a positive recommendation for this book.
This was quite a funny book with several laugh out loud moments. it was lighthearted, perfect for a holiday or travel.
I would give a warning though that the language is very explicit with lots of swearing throughout.
The narrator's performance is good, however I personally found that she sounded significantly older than the age of the characters, which I found distracting.
The vagina jokes get old after a while.
Most interesting was Claire getting pregnant after a one night stand. The least interesting was that the kid gets annoying after a while.
Yes, I like her as a narrator. She helps the story line in many ways.
I was looking for a funny cute story and this was it but I won't be continuing the series.
Parts of this book are really, really funny. Overall I enjoyed it. Just know that the descriptions are definitely true, lots and lots of profanity and extremely descriptive language. For me the language took away from the enjoyment, so I won't be listening to the rest of the series. For some people that might enhance the story for you, then I say go for it. This plot doesn't have much to it, the dialogue is a big part of this book.
I always read the reviews and this book had fabulous reviews. However, the book was irritating, slow and just 'bleh'. The book attempted several times to be funny but ended up just irritating me. I dont fine foul mouth 4 year olds funny or the adults around said 4 year old basically encouraging that behavior. Story line was too slow and have a 0 romance level.
the kid! lol
The book should carry a disclaimer about the language used. The author must have used every word for sexual anatomy and used them all too many times. A sweet story got lost in the sex talk.
Ok so yes the humor is cheesy but well who wouldn't love it!! This book had me laughing from the first page all the way to the end because well hell its real and super funny! The narrator was amazing and brought even more life to this book loved it from beginning to the end.
I was surprised to read so many positive reviews. Granted, I'm only halfway through, but I probably won't finish the book. So far, it's been so very predictable. The narrator, while a good reader, makes zero attempt to use different voices for different characters. Since the story is told from the first person perspective of two different characters, it was at times confusing. Couldn't she have deepened her voice when speaking the male character's words?? There's a lot of sex in the book. That's fine, but I'd like the plot to move along a bit faster. I'm very disappointed.
Seduction and Snacks is one of - if not the - funniest book I’ve ever read. It’s an irreverent look at single parenting, dating, finding true love and… well, it’s a story about so much!
