Tara Sivec is back for Tara Sivec day at Ana’s Attic. Earlier, I posted a review of Troubles and Treats (Chocolate Lovers 3) as well as an interview and a giveaway of a signed copy of the book. She is back this evening for the 3rd night of Chrismukkah with a look at the whole Chocolate Lover’s series, a giveaway of the first book, Seduction and Snacks, and Part 2 of my interview.
Tara Sivec is the author of The Chocolate Lovers Series. Nothing has ever made me laugh as hard as these books do. You know how you laugh more hysterically when others are laughing with you? It didn’t matter that I read these alone I snorted, peed a little, choked, snotted and did all kinds of other things trying to hold in my hysterical laughter while reading these books.
Not only that, I fell in love with the characters and want to hang out with all of them. All the time. I DID get to hang with them once. See the whole party with the gang here. But it isn’t enough….
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.
Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse. (See my review here)
Carter, Claire and Gavin have formed the perfect little family. Their friends are getting married and everyone is growing up, maturing and ready to face the future. Or are they?
From bachelorette party hell, porn addictions, dinner roll baseball and botched wedding proposals to finding out everyone’s extended family is chock full of crazy, Carter and Claire begin to question the strength of the ties that bind them. Unfortunately, these ties have nothing to do with fuzzy handcuffs and everything to do with the mounting differences between them.
Will their friends make a mess of things with their inappropriate comments and need to know everything, or will they convince the couple that happily-ever-after sometimes really can start with beer pong?
Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives – well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.
With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren’t on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack, and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.
Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the discontented duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple’s lives.
In the third and final installment of the Chocolate Lovers Series, will Drew and Jenny find the spark that’s been missing in their marriage, or will the trouble they’re having cause a stickier situation than the time Jenny poured honey all over Drew and he fused himself to a tree?

I asked my 7 year old to come up with a question:
He asked “do you have a dick?” When I told him you were a girl he said “Maybe she’s gay?” Your response? Wait, maybe I AM gay! Why the hell wasn’t I born with a dick??
When I asked him to try again he came up with:
“What’s your favorite type of dick?” One that stands at attention when commanded.
When he couldn’t think of anything else, he asked
What is your favorite Potato? (Mine was Arby’s potato cakes, but I don’t think I can eat there again without thinking about floppy vaginas) KFC’s mashed potatoes and gravy.
Tara will also be releasing her new romantic suspense novel, A Beautiful Lie January 3rd, 2013. So we don’t confuse her with her funny persona, she uses the name T.E. Sivec.
He saw her first, but his friend made the move.
She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.
They love, they crave, they lie.
Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other’s joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.
When one of the friend’s life is tragically cut short, it’s up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth – no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.
Everyone has secrets – some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.
What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie?
Tara was nice enough to give away the book that started it all, Seduction and Snacks for this 3rd night of Hanukkah. If you have read it, it makes an awesome gift for your best friend! If you haven’t read it yet, make sure this is your sense of humor:
