5+ Review: Love and Lists (Chocoholics #1) By Tara Sivec


Amazon * B&N * KOBO * iTunes


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…


Our favorite foul mouthed kid is all grown up and has fallen in love…. unfortunately for him, it’s with his best friend – Charlotte. Jim & Liz’s eldest daughter – the same girl that’s hated Gavin since she was 6 years old when he destroyed her barbie dolls.

But now Gavin is all grown up and work at their parents company, Seductions and Snacks. He’s the head of all things shlongs and dongs, but he still can’t figure out how to ask the girl out.

Everything you loved about the Chocolate Lover’s series is continued on in this hilarious story told by our beloved Claire’s foul mouthed boy who could never stop talking about his penis. Well, some things haven’t changed there…. but now he’s trying to figure out how to show Charlotte he cares about her a hell of a lot more than her BFF – Especially now that she has a new boyfriend in the picture she seems to be parading around…. driving Gavin crazy.

When Gavin and his best friend Tyler devise a plan of attack and create a list of the dumbest things you could think of to get a girls attention – the game is on. Now Gavin has to figure out how to show Charlotte his penis – and hope she appreciates the gesture – and doesn’t kick him in the balls.

The fouled mouth hilarity that is this clan continues on through the next generation.
