Publisher's Summary

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.

WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS IN PUBLIC.

Any additional comments?

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.

SNIGGERS AND MEHs

I love Tara Sivec and, after my last listen (which was a dark disturbing trilogy) I wanted something light and easy.. and the start of this was fluffy fun.. but sorry, the more I listened to it the more juvenile it became. These 25 yr old supposed best friends, and their silly antics, sounded more like stumbling teens rather than grownup adults. This was early 2014 TS so maybe that’s why I didn’t feel or connect to her characters or her story.. but there definitely was humor.

Worth a credit? Another Audible Escape book so thankfully I didn’t use one.

Too over the top

Every line doesn’t have to try to be funny or shocking to consider a book a hilariously good read. This got super annoying by the 30 minute mark and I just couldn’t continue to torture myself any further with it. Good riddance!

A Little too Silly

It started out cute but became unbearable to listen too after each interaction got a little too annoyingly silly.

Funny AF!!!

This book was so good, I was even able to get my husband to not only listen to it, but demand I put it on!!! You know a book is amazing when your husband wants to read/listen with you! I love all of Tara's books but this series might just be my favorite. My husband and I are eager to go on to the next book!

The narration was great! I loved that Tara decided to go with 2 narrators for this series!

Light fun book!

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!

Love and Lists

I liked this book I thought it was fun and witty but a little over the top. I mean the comedy and the spark and chemistry is there but it was just a little too farfetched.

Don’t get me wrong I love Tara and her humor; Jenny and Drew are my favorite couple. So you see I like the humor. Maybe it was just my frame of mind this time.

I loved the narration I thought it was perfect for this book.

Worst

The story line is right up my alley. However the telling of said story was not. I was not encouraged to care about or even like the main characters. The best friend and the sister have no redeeming value whatsoever. The characters were outlandish and unbelievable.

GAVIN & CHARLOTTE!! SOOOOO CUTE!!!

If you could sum up Love and Lists in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Cute & Sweet

What did you like best about this story?

It was fun!

What about James Fouhey and C.J. Bloom ’s performance did you like?

They were both super great!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No Tears...but my fave scene was when Carter caught them in the kitchen....HILARIOUS!!!

Any additional comments?

This was super cute...but not as funny as the chocolate lovers series! This is grown up Gavin and Charlotte...they have been raised together...and are very mush attracted to one another...well things dont start so smoothly...but in the end it all works out...same great group of characters...and now grown up kids!!!! :)

I RECOMMEND...SUPER FUN!!
