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.

Wasted credit on a terrible book in which the author creates somewhat of an interesting storyline but completely kills it by overindulging in vulgarity and overuse of the word "vagina". She wanted to create a funny love story, but the exaggeration of events was pathetic and in parts embarrassing.
On top of the mediocrity of the book, the narrator manages to completely chop it up to pieces. I think that she too had too much of the "fuck", "shit", "vagina", "penis" words overused in this book and she just gave up on trying to minimally narrate the story so that we all know who's talking and who answering back.
All in all, it was one of the worst Audible experiences.
Welcome to our group Dakota; welcome to my life Summer, you've made it so much better. Give back to our wounded warriors who gave so much.
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
I have both read and listened to hundreds of books. I just listened to this book again as it is the funniest book I've ever listened to. The dynamic between the friends in this book makes me want to have them as MY friends. If you only listen to one book on audio, make it this one. The combination of love and humor is perfect.
In my Top 15, I found it very entertaining
Any of Tara Sivec brilliantly funny book, always great value
No, this was this first for me and I really enjoyed her work
Drew LOL, he was ridiculously crude, very inappropriate but my god he made he laugh.
Big fan of Tara`s books and its great to be able to enjoy them on audio without them losing the brilliants of the book. Nothing worse then reading a funny book and the audio comes out a dud, not this one folks.
Was the author an alcoholic? There was a lot of drinking in this book. The book was funny, but it had some story and character development problems. I thought Carter took the news of his son too easy. He never talked about introducing his son to his family. I didn't get a real connection between Carter and Gavin. I did not understand Claire's hesitation in telling Carter about his son. Was it all about her? I didn't like her too much. Carter and Claire's inner thoughts were a little childish at times. It was very ironic how they just met again. Parts of the story seemed disconnected. All in all, it had funny parts. You may enjoy, if nothing else, the humor.
I am an avid audible listener, and have listened to countless books. I have never written a review, but after listening to this book, I felt compelled to forewarn listeners even considering making this purchase.This is easily one of the worst audible book purchases I have ever made. The plot was ridiculous, the narration terrible, and the book was poorly written. To summarize, a college student gets drunk, has a one night fling in order to lose her virginity, gets pregnant, has the child, and then reunites four years later with the father of her child.
What makes this book so horrific is the dialogue between characters. I am surprised that anyone would find this book the least bit funny. In fact, I found myself actually rolling my eyes over and over because the dialogue was just that bad. I think the author was going for a "Sex in The City" kind of feel, where characters are uninhibited and can openly banter about sex. However, these characters were unsophisticated and immature, and the use of profanity was over the top! Every other word was "f___" or "sh__". And there was an absolute obsession with both female and male genitalia. I wish I had a dollar for every time the author used the word "penis" or "vagina". To further compound the problem, the narrator, having little to work with in the first place, was simply awful, sounding more middle-aged than twenty-something. She had no comedic timing nor ability to change vocal inflections when depicting different characters. After getting about one third of the way through, I had had enough! Save you money, buy something else!
