Love and Lists (Chocoholics #1) by Tara Sivec

Love and lists

BOOK:Love and Lists by Tara Sivec



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…


This series is a favorite of mine, well this is actually kind of a spin of series, but the character are the same, but now it’s the kids that are getting in to trouble!!}

“You’re probably also wondering how in the hell I can possibly be twenty-five years old when just yesterday I was four. I know, it’s a tough pill to swallow. I’m not a foul-mouthed, cute little kid anymore. I’m now a foul-mouthed, cute adult.”

It seemed predestined to happen; one of Lisa’s girls was bound to get interested in the adorable Gavin!! , what can I say , Gavin was by far one of the best things in the Chocolate lover’s series , he was so funny I can’t even begin to tell you how much he made crack up!

(You should really read these books!!)

Well in this story, Gavin is 24 years old and is working in the family business ( sex toys and bake goods) he’s very happy with his Job , despite the awkwardness of selling stuff that are named after her mother ( funny!)


But Gavin has a secret, he’s been in love with his best friend Charlotte (best friend of Claire‘s daughter) and has absolutely no idea what to do. They are very close, but he is to afraid to tell her about his feeling, scared of being rejected.

I’m like a fucking dog in heat when it comes to her. My poor penis wants to hump her leg and she just wants to be friends. I feel bad for my penis. He’s had a rough life. I love my penis and he’s totally getting the shaft. Ha! See what I did there?

Charlotte has a new boyfriend (super funny character) and Gavin is determined to do something about it this time, because he’s crazy for her and doesn’t want anybody else.

Soooo he and his friend Tyler (who was amazing and made me spit my coffee laughing) make this list of things he has to do to win Charlotte over and convince her of his love for her or at least recognizer that she has feelings for him also.

They star to do this entire crazy things to get her attention, and everything  always back fires , and even as he thinks nobody knows about his feeling for Charlottes he soon realize that everyone know!! Everyone except for Charlotte her self.

Claire and Liz are putting together wedding arrangements and dreaming of granny names while poor Gavin is desperate to get Charlottes attention.

There are so many funny things ( the bushes thing and the Viagra thing , and

All the older character wants to put some input on how he should win her over, and that is so funny to read!!

I have to say something about Tyler, because I just find him to be sooooo funny and I can’t wait to read more about him (don’t want to spill the beans about that) but I look forward to that one!!

Shut up about my mother.’
‘No can do. She’s going to be mine one day. You should just start calling me dad now,’ he says nonchalantly.
‘I’m going to punch you right in the ball sack if you don’t shut up,’ I warn him.
‘Don’t take that tone with me, young man.'” -Tyler & Gavin

“I roofied you because I wanted you naked …. and afraid, ” Tyler says again in a sinister voice

On the other hand there’s Charlotte and she has some things she is hiding to , but you have to read ti to find out !!


I really like this one and I have to say that it renewed my lost enthusiasm about this series ( I kind of lost it a little after Troubles and Treat ) but I actually want to read the next one really bad , and it about Eva who I loved , because she was such a little bitch !!!

“Ava is like a praying mantis on crack. She will not only chew off his head after she has sex with him, she will have sex with his headless body afterwards and then light it on fire.”

So I really recommend this one to the people who want light easy funny read, no hard dramas in this one just light entertainment and easy laughs. And there’s sweet sweet Gavin which I just adore!!

What’s not to like about it …

The Charlotte Chronicles (Jackson Boys #1) by Jen Frederick

CHARLOTTE CHBOOK: The Charlotte Chronicles by Jen Frederick



Charlotte and Nathan were supposed to be forever. They grew up together. Their families were intertwined. Charlotte was Nathan’s first love. Nathan was Charlotte’s first everything.

Until they weren’t.

How do you hold on to the person you know in your heart you are supposed to be with when everything and everyone in the universe is telling you it’s over?

How many times does a heart-break?
When is enough…..enough?
How long is forever?


*ARC kindly provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*


This book was on my iPad for a few weeks , I didn’t know what it was about , i just  read a little of the blurb and kind of intrigued me.

I most certainly didn’t know it was a spin of something else, but no worries it can be read as a stand alone.

I’ve been meaning to write this review but so many words come to my mind about this book i just can’t get it straight , I love it that is the only clear thing right now, it was the sweetest swoon of a book .

This story is divided in to two parts.

In the first one they are teens , and the book starts right on the day of Charlotte’s  procedure for a brain tumor , we don’t know right away about what it exactly the relationship between the both of them , but it’s clear that it’s an important one and everybody knows it even the parent.

Slowly we realized that Charlotte is very much in love with Nathan , and probably has been for ages, she also think that he only sees her as the little sister just like Nick his brother. but she couldn’t be more wrong because  by this point and due to her illness Nathan is realizing in his heart what his mind has known all along , that Charlotte is for him , she is his to protect and love , since forever and always.

Charlotte was meant to be mine. I knew it when she was born. Nick is her brother, but I’m her protector.

So as all hormones fulled teen’s ,they get together , all this after much consideration from Nathan’s side, and they star to discover love and lust , well more like Nathan is teaching Charlotte , because he’s been around the block a bit.

This part of the story really tugs at my heart , because young love and young lust is so pure and raw in its truest of forms , when one is learning to love everything is strong and feeling are so true ,that I really ache reading some parts, I was so happy for them and so sad because I knew that the storm was close.

And so … as Charlotte’s illness progresses she eventually has to leave to another country  ,  and  feeling lonely and sad some bad decisions and very unfortunate situations happens especially on Nathan’s side , so they split up , an then was when the water works started …  for me at least

She writes him this letters and he hardly ever responds , because he fells unworthy of her love.

After some time passes thing get harder and she has to let go of him

Dear Nate…
I’m still waiting for you, just like I promised. Miss you a thousand times more than the last letter,


“Dear Nate,

It’s been six years! …I’m just done, Nate. Done.
I love you. I will always love you, but for my sake and probably for yours too, I have to move on.

It was so dam sad I could not read because the tears where bothering me … but I had hope because now comes the second part .

In the second parte they are both adults and they have both suffer from their separation, and they havent been able to move on , so Nate realizes that he’s only half a man without Charlotte and he’s ready to search for her and beg her forgiveness and another chance … and her’s where thing get seriously steamy … I mean DAYUMMMM!! ( yeah it was THAT good)

Charlotte chronilces

His possessive side is there and he is a very alpha male , but he adores her and he would do anything for her , he worships her with his heart and most definitely with his body.

“I am your shield, your weapon. Fight for me too, Charlotte.”

Then life happened and they have to go thru some stuff that are very unfair but , im not telling anything more , because I have said too much already.

I just feel the need to share this book with anybody who wants to read it , it’s very good I must say it’s one of my top 5 for the year , because I really felt it , it made feel things and long for things that I felt as a teen. and that what’s good about books , they transport us to places forgotten and they make us feel again .

Spoiler!!!!!. IT HAS WHAT I NEED IN A BOOK A HEA!!! 

So I think I’m most definitely a Jen Frederick fan NOW  !!!!
