Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Love and Lists by Tara Sivec

Love and Lists (Chocoholics Series, Book #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...

If you haven't read the Chocolate Lovers series by this author then I highly recommend you do that before you read this book. Having said that, this can be read as a stand alone.

This story is all about Claire & Carters son, Gavin Ellis, who at the end of Troubles & Treats was a still a young boy with a curious mind and a potty mouth.
He is now 25 years old and working for his mother’s company Seduction & Snacks. He is in love with Jim & Liz's daughter Charlotte, who happens to be his best friend.  This story begins with him wondering "Can someone die of blue balls?"
Being Carter’s son and involved in the family business I expected Gavin to be a bit of a horn bag but he is far from it and pining over Charlotte for years has kept him on the straight and narrow.

With the help of his best mate Tyler they decide make a list of ways to make Charlotte fall in love with him.  Tyler is hilarious, just like Drew was with Carter.

Once again Tara will have you laughing so much you will be crying. From Gavin's viagra boner, hand jobs, drunken kisses, a psychotic ex girlfriend, magic mushrooms chocolate treats to Drew & Jenny's sex advice you will be in love with this new series.

Loved it and give it 4 stars.
