Seduction and Snacks Audiobook

Seduction and Snacks

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.

    "4.5 Stars! Not for everyone, but it satisfied me!"

    About the story...
    This book requires a particular taste that's for sure. I thought it was deliciously dirty and found myself in bouts of laughter. Yeah, at times it was a bit much, but to be fair to the author she gives readers a warning. You need a warped sense of humor and not take offense to foul language, fortunately for me I met all the criteria. I wished the author had backed off the sex just a teeny bit and focused a little more on the story, but then again sex is what got them into the mess they were in. Although, after the intial shock wore off, Claire accepted all of it, didn't consider it a mess, more a blessing, and was a wonderful mother. She might not have said as much, but her actions and love for her son were quite evident. And, when Carter came into the picture he was a wonderful partner for her and a willing, loving father for Gavin!

    Smexy fun aside, this is a wonderful read about the sacrifices we make when that unexpected surprise, that keeps on giving for 18+ years, comes into our lives. I'm definitely on board for the next book!

    About the audiobook...
    Romy Nordlinger did a fantastic job with the narration...top notch voicing. But, listener beware, you might want to stay within the confines of your home when you turn this one on. Not the type of read you want to be plugged into out in public because it will turn you on, and you'll find yourself being hauled off in straight jacket when you randomly burst out laughing! Wear a sign around your neck stating that you're listening to an audio book

    "Good story ok reading"

    The book is funny. I enjoyed the story and Laughed out loud. The narrator was enjoyable to a point. But I thought her voice was a little old for the character which annoyed me a little. Also she didn't really change her voice for carter to sound like a man so at times I would be confused for a little bit about who was talking. Hearing carter talk about his man parts in an older woman's unaltered voice was trying.

    Story
    "horrible and confusing transitions"
    Where does Seduction and Snacks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is what I expect from Tara. I spent most of the book laughing and fell in love with the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seduction and Snacks?

    When Gavin punched Carter in the junk!


    What three words best describe Romy Nordlinger’s performance?

    Funny, and that's all I've got that's good.


    Any additional comments?

    The hardest part for me is that the narrator used the same voice for everyone. The POV would flip between Carter and Claire in the middle of a chapter and you'd have no idea who was speaking until at least a few lines in when you'd get context clues. I found that horribly annoying.

    "Too negative"

    Maybe I wasn't in the moody for this read,. Couldn't get past 2 chapters due to narrator I liked Romy's narration in other books, just found book & narrator incompatible....

    "Love this series!"

    This is my second time around listening to this series and I quickly remembered why I loved it so much. This book kept me in stitches! It is hilarious, a light, humor filled love story you won't want to put down!

    Story
    "Cute story but "vagina" way oversaid."
    Would you try another book from Tara Sivec and/or Romy Nordlinger?

    Not sure if I will finish the series, or even the book. I keep waiting for it to improve, but I'm 3/4 of the way through with the first book and I'm disliking it more than when I started. I mistakenly purchased the entire series instead of my usual one book at a time. The humor seems a bit forced. It is not necessary to add the word "vagina" to just about every thought, but for some reason, it was done, and overdone. I like sarcasm and snarky humor, but again, it was way overdone. The overused vulgarity and profanity was just crass and unnecessary, and didn't add to the conversation at all.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator sounded much older than the 20-something character and didn't match.

    Story
    "Really? Yes, it is that bad."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Starts off sounding like a well written plot but all the poorly used obscenities quickly grind on one's nerves making you prefer the sound of fingernails raking a chalkboard. Sadly, the maturity level of the characters decrease at the same rate the author uses cuss words making me think the story was written by a fourteen year old, who not knowing any better turns every bad word and sexual experience into a cliche. Each time the child cussed, I wanted someone from Social Services to show up and rescue the kid. Equally annoying is the poor performance where little variation in tone between character's made it difficult to know who was talking. But really, there is little that could be done to save the poorly written story.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Kate Perry or Diana Gabaldon.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Romy Nordlinger?

    Xe Sands, Andi Arndt, Kristine Potter


    What character would you cut from Seduction and Snacks?

    Most of them. Scrape the story, it was a waste of my time. It was too easy to dislike all of them, even the kid.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get a refund?

    I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.

    "A comedic mix of sweet and sassy"

    This was a difficult review to write. I have mixed feelings on the book. It's not that the book is bad or the narrator was boring, it's more fluff than anything. I like the characters, and I think there's chemistry between the group, but the book feels very juvenile. There's at least one penis joke or mention of penis or vagina every minute or so it feels. I don't mind the raunchiness, but there's more ways to describe things and organs than repeated used of penis and vagina, some vulgar and some not.


    This is the first book in a trilogy, but it holds its own as a completely stand alone novel. With that being said, I don't know if we'll continue with the rest of the series. This was sweet, but it's also a little empty. The humor was good, but it's raunchy, so if that's not your thing, stay away.

    From a plot standpoint, the chemistry between Claire and Carter is spot on, and Gavin is great comic relief, There's some good embarrassing situations for Claire throughout the book and they work well for the most part, but if you're looking for some deeper romantic plot, this isn't it. It's fun and shallow and great for laughs. It's short and sweet which is great because it doesn't get the chance to stall and drag the plot along.
