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 love audiobooks!!!
Oh my god this book was so freaking funny! Irreverent, potty-mouthed, sexy, sweet, I could go on and on! This book was recommended by a friend who likes the same kinds of books, and I will totally be telling others about it. Looking forward to more books in the series!
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.
Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
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 should preface this by saying that I don't know much about the story because I didn't get far, but it's mostly about the narration. This story seemed like exactly what I was looking for--fun, sarcastic, and crass. I listened to it for about 20 mins and couldn't take it anymore. There's swearing in the book and it talks about sex and you could feel how uncomfortable the narrator was about talking about it. If you've ever watched The Gilmore Girls, it would be about as comfortable if Emily Gilmore was talking about sex and swearing. This book needs someone like Kristen Wiig narrating it.
This was a really fun and easy listen. Such a great laugh. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because when the narrator switched to the male voice, she didn't change her voice up, so it got confusing to figure out he was the one talking now. Other than that, this was hilarious and cute.
