Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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.
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
Warning: includes explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse.
DO NOT DRINK OR EAT WHILE READING THIS BOOK :D
With that said, if you are looking for a laugh out loud, full belly, cramping from laughter, make the person next to you look at you funny cuz you are snorting, this book is for you! and yes its that funny. I’m not even kidding! I made the mistake of reading this book while on the treadmill and I cant tell you how many times I almost fell off from laughing! So beware!!!!
On top of this being the funniest book I’ve ever read it also has a cute love story behind it. Claire always the focused go getter left her virginity on the back burner until a party her BFF Liz dragged her to. While there Claire meets a guy, lets just call him Mr. one night stand for now. They talk and drink all night and before you know it they are fumbling to get each others clothes off. In their drunken stupor there was no barrier between them and weeks later and no sign of aunt flow she takes the dreaded test. The first test wasn’t good enough so many more tests later she FINALLY comes to the conclusion that she is pregnant. She and Liz search all over campus to find this mysterious guy but there is no trace of him.
5 years later…..Claire has a 4 year old son named Gavin and working as a barmaid. Not her ideal job but it gets the bills paid.
Liz stayed in college got her degree in business and is now home in Butler to be close to Claire and to start up her novelty store. Unbeknownst to Claire Liz has bought a building to accommodate both her business and a chance for Claire to utilize her baking skills.
Cue Seduction and Snacks. That’s the name they come up with for their joining stores.
Before Liz opens her store she wants to get her merchandise out there so she throws a few parties. Liz wants Claire to be her part time sales rep at said parties. To Claire’s horror Liz whips out a dildo from her case to show the ladies of Butler what they have been missing out on. Claire knows this is a bad idea. she never used a toy let alone had an orgasm and knowing what her friend is selling, thinks she is not cut out for this job.
After one of the parties Claire goes into work at the bar only to find Mr. one night stand. He’s even more gorgeous than she remembered. He on the other hand doesn’t remember her. He only remembers her smell, a smell he’s been searching for for over 5 years! But at that moment he’s too drunk to even put two and two together.
Carter who happened to crash a frat party met an amazing girl and had the best night of his life with her. But in the morning, she was gone. No name no nothing!! He and his buddy Drew go back home but this mysterious girls smell stays with him. Everywhere he went he had to check to see if he could find that smell of chocolate that lingered on her skin. He never found it until the day he and Drew got transferred to the Butler. He was trying to drown his sorrows when the smell he’d been longing for hit him like a ton of bricks. The barmaid couldn’t be “her”, could it?
Luck was on Carters side. Jim, Liz’s fiancés, works in the same plant as Carter and after hearing his story about this lost girl he’d been in search of has Jim inviting the guys over for dinner. Claire was to join that same dinner. She always seems to show her embarrassing side wherever she goes and she doesn’t disappoint. She barges into Liz’s house to announce that the latest party was a bust and that she’s spilled her guts about never having an orgasm.
This is the trend throughout the whole book. I don’t want to give away anymore, you just have to read this. And honestly I was sad to have the book come to an end. Every character was fun to read about even Drew. He was kind of a douche but his t-shirt are one of a kind! Put everything else down and get this book.
You wont be disappointed!
