Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec

Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers #1)
Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that 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.

Seduction and Snacks didn’t quite hit the spot for me. While it did have its moments I think it was just too much. So here’s what I loved and what I didn’t love so much.

What I didn’t love so much:

Man. How much “funny” can an author shove into a book? The answer: Too much. Seduction and Snacks is living prove of this. The characters sarcasticness took a lot away from the plot. It got to the point were I couldn’t take the characters seriously. Every time I was engaged in an important plot point the author pick that exact moment for the character to be silly. I love sarcastic character but when every character in the book acts the same way, it gets a little annoying. Sometimes I didn’t know from which POV I was reading because Clare and Carter acted the same exact way! Except he didn’t talk about his vajayjay as much as Claire did.

Another thing that annoyed me a little bit was how much the characters talked about their private bits. How many names can a person come up for genitalia? Read Seduction and Snack and you’ll find out. The word vagina was mention 127 times in a book that is 282 (kindle) pages long. ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-SEVEN times yo! That’s not counting the other names the author used to replace the word *whispers* vagina.

What I loved:

The beginning was good. It was funny. I loved the plot and Seductions and Snacks wasn’t boring at all. I loved some of the characters. While it had many things that annoyed me, I have to say that in some parts made me laugh my butt off. At the end I was still disappointed because the book had lots of potential. The author is amazing, talented and very very funny. I just wish the book was better balanced, less silly and more to the point.
