Love & Lists (Chocoholics #1) by Tara Sivec
Release Date: October 1, 2013
Love and Lists is the first book in the Chocolate Lovers spinoff Chocoholics:
The foulmouthed 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 SexEd 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 "todo" item...
Tara Sivec is a wife, mom, chauffeur, cheerleading coach, soccer coach, babysitter, shortorder
cook, genius and albino squirrel hunter. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two kids. In her spare time she likes read, write and cover things in chocolate. Most of her material comes from real life experiences with family and friends. Lucky for them, the names have been changed to protect the innocent (aka, drunk).
Tara also writes under the pen name T.E. Sivec where she can be serious, suspenseful and not at all funny.

If I thought I was a Chocoholic before, I might just be nearing the death by chocolate phase! I was dying laughing while reading Love and Lists! I absolutely loved the Chocolate Lovers series and this book is the icing on the cake!
I'm sure you remember Gavin from his childhood days, running around with vibrators, sharpies and whatever else he could get his hands on. Now that he's all grown up, nothing has changed! He's working at the family business and trying to get the girl he loves to love him back. With the help of his friend Tyler, he comes up with a "to do" list to get the girl! Knowing this crew, you should know that nothing ever goes as planned especially when that girl just happens to be Charlotte, the daughter of Liz and Jim!
Love and Lists was outrageously funny, perfectly sweet and exactly what I needed! I love Gavin all grown up and can't wait for more of this series and these characters. Thanks again Tara for delivering yet another delicious indulgence!
