Free hosting has reached the end of its useful life
I normally don't like vagina; it can be very territorial. When vagina When vagini get around each other, the pussy claws come out and everything becomes one big competition.
But deep down inside we' Tara Sivec But deep down inside we're all just looking for someone to high-five our clean poonani with. So why bring up age old twat wars? A woman that makes me want to jump up and yell, "OOH! Tara Sivec is the vagina whisperer. Tara, I give you the double flap slap, the hymen high-five! You are a rock star!
This book came highly recommended to me because of it's real hilarity, but damn if I didn't fall for everything else too. I fell in love with all the amazing characters. I wanted to get knocked up just so I could have a Gavin.
I felt like I needed a condom just to read it! However, in the midst of all the hilarity was a story of intense passion and heart-melting romance.

A book I would read again and again. A book that should knock every other book on your TBR list to the bottom. Reviewed at www. View all 41 comments. It stopped being funny and started to become annoying. Very annoying, over-the-top, and ridiculous. Just too much! For me, this is one of those books that tries too hard to be funny and ends up failing because of it. And, boy, was it crude! Not a fun combination for me! I believe whether or not this book works for a reader depends solely on what one considers humorous.
For those wondering if this book's humor w DNF This book started out hilarious and I was having a blast reading it until I wasn't.

It was oh-so-swoony with some seriously omg-fan-yourself H. T and steamy bedroom scenes and an absolutely heart-meltingly sweet and beautiful story about a family finding each other and coming together… just all-round WIN!!
Easily one of my favorite reads of the year! At the same time, we get the alternate POV from Carter the gorgeous swoony guy she slept with who also has been searching everywhere trying to find her. Fast forward 5 years later to present day, Claire is a single mom whose passion is baking but who now sells sex toys with her best friend so she can make money to care for her 4-year-old son, Gavin.
Then one day, randomly, out of the blue, Carter shows up in her town and she then finds out that he too has been trying to find her since that night in college. There is nothing subtle or delicate about this book, but it totally works in the context of how the story unfolds. I was going to stand next to every single woman in labor and every time..
It has a very happy ending, but its clear that there is more to the story. Seriously, everyone HAS to read it!! Highly recommended if you love to laugh!!!!

Edited to add: If there's a downside to the book it's that while reading, I often wondered if Claire did nothing to shelter Gavin from her own unparentlike behaviors. But when I just read it for the entertainment value, I couldn't put it down or stop laughing.
The bottom line — this book had me laughing so hard I was crying.
Middle of the night, wake up the whole family because I was l laughing so hard I was screeching. View all 33 comments. Aug 07, S. View all 44 comments.

I didn't like it Recommended to Michelle by: Tessamari's 5 star I was almost finished, had about 30 pages to go, but it was just too absurd to keep me any longer and I knew I had lost all patience.
I was ready to scrap it about 30 pages in, but then it made me laugh. I laughed so hard, in a few places in this thing, my sides ached. She used it as filler for a story seriously lacking. Almost like having sex for the sake of sex in a book. Same thing here with the humor. And, if I had read the words vagina or penis one more time I would have killed something … I love those words, but seriously!
I think one of the very things I have some rigidity about is how children are portrayed in books. She had this poor kid [4 years old] saying things a veteran trucker or sailor would have issue hearing come out of their own mouths. The innuendo this 4 year old is supposed to understand and imply … asinine.
I just felt really sorry for the parenting skills portrayed. Then the very next minute they had him acting like a baby. A four year old is not a baby and most talk very well with a large vocabulary at this age. And his behavior, all very frustrating for me. I think this book has been marketed all wrong. It is more Saturday Night Live does romance.
One suggestion for this author … pick something.
Either focus on the humor or focus on the romance or develop your talents to balance the two much better than this debut demonstrates. I would not recommend the entire book to anybody. View all 22 comments. Jan 13, DW rated it it was amazing.
I know this book has been out for several years but I just found it. I loved loved loved it soooooo much. I don't think that I have ever laughed so hard while reading a book. What's not to love?

I was kinda surprised that I even read the book till there Everyone and I mean everyone in the book was obsessed with vagina and of course penis , all they could do was talk about it, think about it, want to have sex all the time either with themselves or others.
Perhaps they did not have a proper psychosexual development, something must have gone wrong in their phallic stage. I don't know We have been taught to be critical thinkers and not pass judgement based on our whims because writers write and it's our job to understand what they are trying to convey and read between the lines, so as a critical thinker I would once again like to reiterate my earlier point GET A LIFE the characters-I just don't get them.
The storyline was pretty common but it had potential and could have been developed into something worthwhile but the characters, the writing style, the words, all of it slowly and slowly choked the life out of it until there was nothing left but this There are many who liked it, no, actually loved it which is clearly evident from their reviews and ratings, so to each their own, I guess.
The book didn't make me laugh alright, it did perhaps just once or twice , it did make me cringe though. I'm not a prude or something nor do I have anything against swear words used occasionally but I want to know- do people really talk that way? View all 27 comments. Imagine holding on to your virginity for 20 years only to loose it in a drunken, one-night-stand to a hot, but nameless guy at a fraternity party. Yes, lots of things suck about that previous statement, but then top it off with the biggest suck factor of all — Mr.
Nameless apparently had some super-sperm that somehow escaped confines of the condom. With the help of her close friends, Liz and Jim, Claire scours the college campus in search of her nameless, one-night-boy toy — without success. Although this is not the path she had planned to take, she pulls up her boot straps, revves up her sense of humor and makes the necessary adjustments to her life — which includes dropping out of college and moving back home with her gruff, but loveable military father.
Self-Published Author, Tara Sivec definitely has a way with words — quite unlike any author I have read. What a refreshing change of pace in comparison to the loads of blah romances and erotic reads with no plot to choose from. Sivec has done an excellent job conveying her unique, snarky humor while making her quirky characters come to life in this romantic comedy.
The pictures she paints with words are so vivid the images pop right off the page and you feel like you are experiencing the hilarious situations in real life! With the exception of some grammatical and spelling errors, Sivec has done a great job of giving the reader a lovely finished product. I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Short Summary: Claire is a college student who decides to lose her virginity at a frat party, but consequently ends up getting knocked up by Carter aka the one night stand. The crazy thing is Claire and Carter never exchanged names after Claire sneaks out the next morning.
They never see each other again until 5 years later when Carter shows up at the bar Claire works at. Claire recognizes Carter and the rest makes for one funny ass story. I loved Claire.
She is so sarcastic and never holds anything back. She will tell you exactly how she feels about a situation like childbirth and will never sugarcoat anything. I really liked that about her. Carter is a sweetheart!! I love him!!! But the person who stole the whole book to me is Claire and Carter's four year old son Gavin. This adorable foul-mouth little boy was hilarious. He had me in tear at one time from laughing so hard. I freaking loved him!! He kept me entertained the whole time with his punching people in the nuts antics.
Overall, I loved this book!!
It was so funny!! Definitely a must read!! This seems to be a love it or hate it type book, and for me it was just so-so. It was funny in places, sure. There were a few times that I belly laughed.
But to be honest, I think the author relied so heavily on potty humor, I felt like I was watching an eight hour episode of South Park.
Crude can be funny, but my GOSH, it was so overdone! Shock value only lasts so long, and then its no longer shocking I like how Claire describes her desire to never have chil This seems to be a love it or hate it type book, and for me it was just so-so.
I like how Claire describes her desire to never have children. I remember being pretty horrified by kids myself until I had my own little monster daughters that I couldn't love more if I tried. But the way she actually mothers him is more like a naughty teenage aunt with very few morals. And I realize that this is fiction.
Possibly I was offended because my daughters are close in age to Gavin and I was disgusted by the lack of parenting in this book. In every single scene that involves the kid, he's either punching someone in the balls, asking his MOTHER to see her boobs, staring at his father's morning wood, or cursing.
Just another example of how Sivec's type of humor was waaay overdone. It would be funny once or twice, but I just found myself horrified at the bratty kid who NEVER got disciplined, no matter how bad the behavior. Rant over. I know I'm over analyzing the kid part.
The behavior of the adults is reminiscent of college, pre-children for me. There are almost as many hangovers as boners in this book, and more than one scene is dedicated to the stupid things that Claire and her posse do while rip roaring drunk.
Isn't being a lushy, slobbery mess how she became a single parent in the first place? Not to judge, but good grief!

Time to grow up. Are there really people out there that dedicate their weekends to partying after age 25? I can see the occasional letting loose, but geez. The women and the mouths they have are cringe worthy. I'm not a prude, but the words twat and cunt coming out of a woman's mouth regularly are just trashy sounding. I read some excerpts to my husband, and though he laughed, he also turned to me and said, "I'm glad you don't talk like that.
It'd be kinda gross. Or maybe I just became immune, I don't know. Okay, having said all of that, I CAN still see the appeal. This is a cut loose and have fun book. There's really no meaningful dialogue beyond a few sweet words, and very little angst. It's so lighthearted, even the parts that maybe should have held more meaning But she kept to the light and stayed upbeat through the beat down of doing everything on her own. I liked how Carter immediately stepped into his new role of Daddy and there wasn't any reason to hate him.
He was completely loveable. Truly, if you're gonna get knocked up, you want it to be by a guy like Carter. View all 35 comments. Should not have touched this. View all 6 comments.
Um, a hilarious rom-com about second chance romance with plenty of smut and a whole shit load of chocolate?? To this, I say I was a little skeptical about reading this book because I don't typically like books that involve surprise pregnancies or kiddos in general.
I prefer my fiction escapes not to mirror my real life as a mom. Anywho… in this story, a drunken one night stand leads to a loss of virginity, a surprise pregnancy, and absolutely no idea as to the identity of the man with the ex Um, a hilarious rom-com about second chance romance with plenty of smut and a whole shit load of chocolate??
Anywho… in this story, a drunken one night stand leads to a loss of virginity, a surprise pregnancy, and absolutely no idea as to the identity of the man with the excellent swimmers. Fast forward 5 years, and fate has stepped in to help right the wrongs that liquor created. And it was, folks. This book was super sweet. Light read with absolutely no angst. But, what sets this one apart and kept me hooked despite the kiddy aspect was the absolute hilarity throughout this book. I was no joke laughing out loud while reading this.
I mean, it was so funny in parts that I was wiping the "laughing tears" from my eyes. View all 12 comments.
I tried. This one just isn't going to work. Swearing and sex doesn't bother me obviously, if you know me but this book reminds me of a preteen who's just decided that he'll seem really awesome if he manages to fit in every raunchy word possible in the telling of one story - it's called trying too hard to be entertaining.
The jokes are drowning in the attempt to look youthful and cool. Yes, I have a total girl crush on Tara Sivec. I am ready to move near Tara and stalk her so I can be her best friend and maybe lick her face a little. I love her that much. Or are they one in the same? Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec is hands down my new favorite book.
I laughed so much during this book scary th Read more of my reviews and ramblings at Ana's Attic Book Blog I am in love. I laughed so much during this book scary things were happening to my body. I was eating chips damn my husband for leaving those Bugles out! I had a little cough while reading this, so every time I laughed, I would break into a coughing fit.
My family had on speed dial. So here is the plot. The book opens with Claire talking about how much she had no desire for rugrats. I get this, I was married 7 years before I went off the pill. But at 20 years old, she was desperate to give up her v-card.
She met this amazing, swoony guy at a frat party. Me, me, me, pick me! And who the hell keeps whining and ruining my perfect moment? I will cut a bitch. Wait till you read the scene with him waking up and looking down at the evidence of her lost virginity. Claire and Liz had tried every way to search for the baby-daddy, Carter, after she found she was pregnant.
Coincidentally, they meet again, and so begins a romance that was funny as hell, totally hot, completely romantic and amazing to read.
Carter is amazing, even his douchebag friend Drew cracked me up with his hysterical shirts. I love funny shirts, I download them for my kids. I started out highlighting funny quotes for the blog.
I would have highlighted the entire book. But not only was the book filled with funny lines, I really loved the sweet romance. I totally love him! I read all my books on my iPhone with the second to largest print setting what?
There were a ton of references to movies and pop culture and I totally got every one of them, including General Hospital yes, I watched it for over 30 years , watching the Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd playing obviously someone knows her pot pop culture , and some great movies from my teen years.
I never knew hysterical laughing can make my tampon start to slip out! I am ordering those vagina balls look to your right and down on the blog and starting kegels immediately. I know. The sequel, Futures and Frosting was just as much fun see my review on that there.
I think these should be on the next cover! View all 13 comments. Jul 19, Sheryl C. I don't care that this was written originally as a Twilight fanfic and that people are pissed that the author pulled her stories from the free domain to publish them seriously, all of you that gave the author one star for doing that NEED TO GROW UP!!!
Why don't y'all just go lay that shit on the doorstep of EL James, considering that Fifty Shades was also originally written as a Twilight fanfic?!
Y'all just need to grow a pair All i can say is read the damn thing already!! View all 18 comments. How, in the name of all that is holly can people call this book funny?
Do not read this if you ARE a fifteen year old boy. This book is totally crude and inappropriate and uses the word "vagina" a lot. If you don't think people who are drunk are hilarious, you shouldn't read this book. You probably shouldn't read this book if you aren't drunk yourself. You should probably just put this book down and get drunk. You may think that no one in the world talks like the people in this book, but they do.
They are called "people who are funny and inappropriate". This book is completely unrealistic; the author is aware of that fact and did it on purpose. 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.
