Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives - well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.
With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren't on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack, and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.
Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the discontented duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple's lives.
In the third and final installment of the Chocolate Lovers Series, will Drew and Jenny find the spark that's been missing in their marriage, or will the trouble they're having cause a stickier situation than the time Jenny poured honey all over Drew and he fused himself to a tree?

This was definitely my favourite book from the series. It was laugh out loud funny. Very enjoyable listen.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This was funny love that Drew got his own book. Jenny and Drew were having wild kinky sex and once the second child came along it all stopped. Sometimes life gets in the way and couples have to make time talk and bring the sexy back. I am so glad Jenny and Drew found their spark.
Now that I’ve finished book three of Tara Sivec’s Chocolate Lovers Series, I can see what all the hype was about. These three books were nothing short of entertaining.
Troubles and Treats takes a slightly different turn than Seduction and Snacks and Futures and Frosting did. While those two books were told from the point of view of Claire and Carter, Troubles & Treats is from Jenny’s and Drew’s points of view. I was a little thrown in the beginning, but I admit this is mainly due to not rereading the blurb before starting the book. If I had, I’d have seen they were the main character’s this time around. I soon go used to being in Drew’s head, and that was a welcomed change. He’s a hilarious character, and the fact that he’s coupled with Jenny makes him worthy of his own book. Jenny’s great too, in her own ways. I especially like how we get her side of the story when it comes to her using the wrong words when she’s talking.
Was this a good ending to the series? I’d say so. Sivec didn’t hold back in hilarious and outrageous moments in this book. Readers will have no worries when it comes to getting laughs. This book is filled with them. This book is also filled with a great story. Drew and Jenny are going through troubles in their marriage, and the author is able to bring this serious subject into the book without killing the comedic elements. She’s also able to not overdo the comedy when it comes to making sure the main storyline is easily followed.
One of my favorite pieces of this book is the addition of children to the group. Before we only had a young Gavin, but now there are more kids and even more hilarious dialogue. At times I don’t know how the author comes up with some of this stuff. It’s so out-there, but so good.
The Chocolate Lovers Series is over, but luckily I have one short story to read. I know I’ll be missing these characters and their crazy lives, so the short story Hearts and Llamas will be calling my name to help me revisit them.
Love a good romance
OVER ALL THIS IS THE FUNNIEST TRIOLOGY ROMANCE I THINK I HAVE EVER LISTEN TO, THE FIRST TWO ARE UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST BUT THIS ONE WAS OK.THE SEX AND LANGUAGE IS NOT G RATED BUT THE LAUGHS ARE UNENDING
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
The writing. It's hard to find a great story, that combines family, friendship and humor.
Both pepper spray incident. Humor is always wonderful. I laughed through most of the story.
I've always heard that drama is easy and humor, that everyone will find funny, is hard.
The only complaint I have is, that I had a hard time distinguishing different characters. The narrator has a pleasant voice but rarely changed her voice to suit the characters.
Now I have to listen to all of Tara's books!
This was a great series, and this book was the perfect ending. I don't think I have listened to anything that made me laugh more than this did!
Say something about yourself!
I loved this book and the characters - I had a red face and tears, there were some awesome lines in there that I wish I had used! Listening with Romy as the narrator - perfect!
These books are pretty silly but this one I laughed out loud a few times. Definitely the funniest of the 3. The characters are dumb but very sweet so it's hard not to love them. They are struggling in their relationship like most couples with small children and because it's real it's quite enjoyable. Narration is good BUT it is very annoying that at the beginning of the chapter the narrator doesn't tell whose perspective she is reading from. Her voice is the same for all characters so you have to pay attention to figure out which character it is. Other than that the narration is good but if you like different voices for different characters you will not like this book (or the other 2 in the series).
Humorous at times but a lot of nasty language.
Cleaned up the language.
No. She doesn't pull off male voices well at all.
The story is fantastic and one of the funniest I have ever read/heard. It is my go to series when I am in a funk and need a pick me up.
I felt the person reading wasn't quite right for the voice, she is a little hard to listen to as she gets annoying. Plus she doesn't do different voices for the characters which made it a little hard to fallow. I really prefer girl voices for the girl roles and guy voices for the men parts.
I will say that even though the person hired to read these stories is lacking it wasn't bad enough to deter me to not buy the series audio books
