Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Rediculous plot, terrible narrator, poorly written"

    I am an avid audible listener, and have listened to countless books. I have never written a review, but after listening to this book, I felt compelled to forewarn listeners even considering making this purchase.This is easily one of the worst audible book purchases I have ever made. The plot was ridiculous, the narration terrible, and the book was poorly written. To summarize, a college student gets drunk, has a one night fling in order to lose her virginity, gets pregnant, has the child, and then reunites four years later with the father of her child.

    What makes this book so horrific is the dialogue between characters. I am surprised that anyone would find this book the least bit funny. In fact, I found myself actually rolling my eyes over and over because the dialogue was just that bad. I think the author was going for a "Sex in The City" kind of feel, where characters are uninhibited and can openly banter about sex. However, these characters were unsophisticated and immature, and the use of profanity was over the top! Every other word was "f___" or "sh__". And there was an absolute obsession with both female and male genitalia. I wish I had a dollar for every time the author used the word "penis" or "vagina". To further compound the problem, the narrator, having little to work with in the first place, was simply awful, sounding more middle-aged than twenty-something. She had no comedic timing nor ability to change vocal inflections when depicting different characters. After getting about one third of the way through, I had had enough! Save you money, buy something else!

    I am a blogger for Sheila's Book Corner. There isn't a moment that goes by that I am not reading or listening to a book.

    "Soft core porn"

    I was surprised to read so many positive reviews. Granted, I'm only halfway through, but I probably won't finish the book. So far, it's been so very predictable. The narrator, while a good reader, makes zero attempt to use different voices for different characters. Since the story is told from the first person perspective of two different characters, it was at times confusing. Couldn't she have deepened her voice when speaking the male character's words?? There's a lot of sex in the book. That's fine, but I'd like the plot to move along a bit faster. I'm very disappointed.

    "the most HILARIOUS romance I have ever read!!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Seduction and Snacks is one of - if not the - funniest book I’ve ever read. It’s an irreverent look at single parenting, dating, finding true love and… well, it’s a story about so much!

    "Fun and naughty"

    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.

    "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.
