Love and Lists is the first book in the Chocolate Lovers spinoff - Chocoholics: The foul-mouthed offspring tell their stories. Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Ellis has always had the love and support of his family ever since he was a little boy and couldn't stop talking about his penis. He's also always had their unsolicited advice and uncanny knack of embarrassing him at all costs. Now that he's an adult and trying to convince the love of his life to love him back, things haven't changed very much from when he was younger. When Gavin's best friend, Tyler, suggests he make a to-do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is 100 percent on board: after a few six packs. After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a sex-ed course gone wrong, and a slew of other mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure this list will be the death of him. Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn't always the best idea.

If you don’t want to look like the crazy person who has laugh-attacks in the middle of the street read this in the privacy of your house.
Unless you want to be the crazy person who laughs alone in public, in that case: Go ahead. Go read this in a full bus or something.
I loved the Seduction and Snacks series and each got funnier as it went along. This spinoff about Gavin and Charlotte did not disappoint. I liked their stories and it was a lot fun revisiting the gang. I especially liked having 2 different narrators for the male and female characters which made following the different POV's easier (my only complaint about the previous audiobooks was it was sometimes hard figuring out whose POV you were listening to at first).
Not for the faint of heart or prudish but, good hearted, laugh out loud fun! The characters are very well developed with complete back stories and quirks! A pleasure to listen too.... Had to purchase books 2 & 2.5 before I finished chapter 1 of the first book!
While there were a few humorous spots, I found the behavior and dialogue very immature! It reminded me of high school. Very simplistic predictable plot. I like witty clever banter and this was not it!
I forced myself to listen to the whole book because it received good reviews.
Also if you are looking for steam, no steam here!
