Tour Stop: LOVE AND LISTS by Tara Sivec ~ Review/Giveaway

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..

OH...MY...GOD!!!! I can not begin to tell you how awesomely funny this book is. I made the mistake of starting this book while at the salon getting my hair highlighted. You know, while you sit there in the chair looking like an alien with your hair piled high with foils sticking out. I think I picked up a rock station with all the aluminum in my hair. Anyway, where was I. Oh yea, so I'm sitting in the chair reading along and I starting laughing and snorting. Yes, Im a snorter. I blame it on my terrible sinuses. I look up and the woman sitting across from me, she is staring at me through her mirror and I want to say, "What? It's funny." 

I loved this book and laughed my ass off while reading it. Tara Sivec is the funniest person I have ever read. Gavin and Charlotte are funny. I swear that I will never be able to look at Spiderman the same. You'll totally get that last sentence after you read the book. I seriously wanted to highlight all my favorite lines in this book but over 75% of the book would've been highlighted and that kind of defeats the purpose. Read this book, laugh your ass off, and fall in love with grown up Gavin. 

I give this book 5 Screaming Goats Stars!!! (You'll get that when you read it.)  ~Jen
