Seduction and Snacks | [Tara Sivec]

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.

    Absolutely love to read, anything! Well maybe not Western or biographies but other than that anything. Dystopian is quickly becoming my fav!

    This story is very funny and very raunchy. I listened to it on audio and probably would have liked it better if I had read it.

    "Laugh your butt off amazingness right here..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seduction and Snacks to be better than the print version?

    No...it's the same story but I wasn't crazy about the narrator's voice.


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

    Oh wow...just one? Let's just say it involves Claire, Carter, sexy times and almost getting caught by a TV news camera and reporter.


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

    I wasn't crazy about it - the ladies voice is NOT Claire...and it was almost bordering on annoying. I dealt with it but...yeah, not my fav...which sucks because I LOVE the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Story - yes...the narrator...no.


    Any additional comments?

    HILARIOUS trilogy - if you love romantic comedies, this is one of the best IMO.

    "Hilarious But Has Big Flaws"

    This book was so funny that at times I was crying from laughing so hard. However, the absolute pointless use of profanity was distracting. I have no problem with books that contain "explicit sex, profanity, and enough sarcasm to choke a horse," but it began to feel like I was listening to a pack of 12 year old boys who were in a contest to see how many times they could use raunchy language in a sentence. It became extremely tiresome. And really, 4 year olds using profanity or talking about their body parts constantly just isn't funny.
    The other big flaw was the fact that the parts of the book which are from the male point of view aren't distinguished the female's point. Sometimes this switch happens in the middle of a chapter. Having an actual male read the parts of the book from Carter's point of view would have made it much less confusing.

    Story
    "Funny, giggly and just out loud laughter.."
    What did you love best about Seduction and Snacks?

    It was raunchy, hilarious, true to life and a good light hearted listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I just loved Drew, Carter, Liz, Claire, Jenny, Jim the Dad George and that little terror Gavin.


    What about Romy Nordlinger’s performance did you like?

    I found her voice to be a bit gravelly, with an older sound to it and she isn't too good at character differentiation.. sometimes I got a bit lost and played cathc up on who was speaking..


    If you could take any character from Seduction and Snacks out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Oh I would take that Dad George.. hmmm.... ( ok, so I'm his age) what can I say.. ex Nam, Built like a brick sh@t house.. OMG..


    Any additional comments?

    This was a really good listen, very true to life, quite raunchy and yes we all have wandering minds when we have sex.. Does my tummy look flat enough? Hope I don't fart.. I shouldn't have eatn all of those dried prunes.. lol!

    Story
    "Worst. Book. Ever."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm not sure what the author was trying to accomplish here. It was like she was trying to write a Harlequin romance, but in a porn-y, frat boy kind of way. The narrator's elfish voice didn't help the story. If I hear the word 'penis' or 'vagina' one more time, I think I'll throw myself off of a bridge. Definitely not my type of book. So disappointed - seemed like a good plot summary, but this book falls flat on so many levels. I couldn't even finish it. I guess the audience that this would appeal to would be a 22 year old frat boy, or a 15 year old horny kid with no imagination. I was bored and uninterested by the second chapter. Save your credits if you're a grown up.


    Has Seduction and Snacks turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Definitely.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There was no attempt at giving the characters didn't voices. After a while, I found her tone and inntonation to be quite annoying.


    What character would you cut from Seduction and Snacks?

    The vapid Jen or Liz or whatever her name was. Drew. Carter. Claire. The dad. The kid, Gavin. There wasn't anyone I liked, or could tolerate.


    Any additional comments?

    Worst. Book. Ever.

    I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.

    Story
    "Sex, sex and more sex"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who wanted to hear about sex in every paragraph of the story.


    What could Tara Sivec have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I couldn't get past constantly hearing about sex and not much else. A stronger focus on developing and presenting an interesting story would be a real improvement.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I couldn't get past the content to really evaluate the performance adequately. I'm sorry the narrator was stuck with this title.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disinterest.


    Any additional comments?

    Yuck! I should've read a bunch of reviews and listened to the Sample.

    I found myself laughing out loud several times listening to this book.
    I will have to say that it is graphic and crude, but really, really funny.

    "Laugh Out Loud Hilarious!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! I think all my friends with Kids should listen (read) this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drew cracks me up... Only because I have a friend just like him. Inappropriate t-shirts and all...


    What three words best describe Romy Nordlinger’s voice?

    Kind of disappointing.


    If you could rename Seduction and Snacks, what would you call it?

    Titillation and Tasty Treats


    Any additional comments?

    The book itself is absolutely hilarious! One of the funniest books I've read(listen to). The book is full of laugh out loud moments. Romy is doing well narrating the book. However, there are times with the book switches characters and it takes a minute which character she's portraying. I wish she could/would distinguish between her male and female voices. To my ears they’re all the same. Either way, I’ve enjoyed this book so much, I’m downloading the next one right now. Happy Listening!

    "Good easy read."
    Would you try another book from Tara Sivec and/or Romy Nordlinger?

    If she had someone else narrate it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was very hard to distinguish between some of the people. I would be listing along and have to sit back and figure out who was talking the first few times it happened I actually had to skip back.

    "Stop the word vomit!!!!"

    While I enjoyed the storyline of this book and the narration was adequate, the writing was just too much filler/useless fluff/chatter. Where was the editor for this book? Most comments, thought or spoken, by the characters were accompanied by an overly enthusiastic attempt at humor through the use of analogies. The effort to be witty through these analogies was painful by the end of the first chapter! Why would an editor let a writer get away with using the words penis and vagina in almost every other sentence for paragraphs at a time? I found the repetition of these words was ridiculous and boring. That is just one example of the poor writing/editing.

    I almost stopped listening to this book several times for various reasons but wanted to give the author time to finish the story. Well, I finished it, but I won't be buying the rest of the trilogy. Am considering returning this one, which is something I have yet to do with any of the hundreds of books I've purchased in the past.

    As a couple of characters say (and several times at that!), "Stop the word vomit!"
