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
In a word, no. Talent is not required to form sentences where cursing is used every third word and vulgarity is the main theme. It takes talent to write with entertaining and clever humour. There was none of that. There''s nothing wrong with smut when used to enhance a theme but this was just potty mouth level.
I enjoy ckever humour. There was none of that. The characters were supposed to be in their 20's but the dialogue echoed that of badly behaved young teenagers.
I don't know. It was difficult to work out which character was supposed to be speaking as Romy was niot able to moderate her voice to differentiate between the characters.
Multiple scenes but so many there would hardly be anything unchanged.
I read from many genres and a plethora of authors, snd I do enjoy a funny entertaining book. I was looking forward to laughing through a well-written story. This was not it.
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.
