Book Review: Love and Lists

LOVE AND LISTS (Chocoholics, #1) by Tara Sivec: 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 one-hundred-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. Especially when "Show her your penis" is the first "to-do" item...

TeriLyn's thoughts: Tara Sivec can cure a book hangover with her hilarious one-liners and witty dialogue. Love and Lists is no different. It will be hard for me to ever enjoy a chocolate lovers couple more than Carter and Claire but they all completely entertain me. Love and Lists looks a Gavin twenty years later as an adult and his best friend/secret love Charlotte Gilmore. Gavin's antics are completely in sync with the crazy family he grew up in; he and Charlotte are after each other and they are both clueless that the other is in the same boat. Although somewhat understated from their parents they still indulge in the same brand of crazy. Gavin and Charlotte's story is just as sweet as it is hilarious. There are so many great one-liners in this book not just from them but from the whole crew. Also, Love and Lists adds Gavin's best friend, Tyler, to the mix. Tyler is Drew 2.0 and is a great addition to the crew. It doesn't surprise me that Gavin has a best friend who's personality rivals Drew and I'm so glad we got to meet him. If you need a good, easy story to read after a book hangover, a Tara Sivec is definitely the cure. Love and Lists is laugh out loud funny.
