“A cute love story about happy endings. I was a bit confused when the author switches back and forth between the 2 main characters, but it didn't take long to get into the book. Kept me hooked till the end!”Fire Raven wrote this review 6 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This book was frigging hilarious, I was laughing at probably every page I turned. Definitely brought back a lot of memories too and made me see it in a different light, sometimes you really need a good laugh at the things that life brings. These characters are really funny, and have mouths like dirty sailors. I'm so in-love with them.
Claire didn't need any distraction from a boyfriend, so she decides to lose her virginity in a one night stand, but the girl who swears off the idea of having children gets pregnant from said one night stand. She makes the decision to give up her dream of a college degree and become a single mom. I liked being in Claire's head, she has this style of going with the flow one minute, and then she's freaking out because she creates a story in her head of what's really happening, think more hilarious than whiny. Thank god. Her BFF Liz is no different when it comes to having a smutty potty mouth, okay that's a lie, Liz is worse. These two friends are perfect for each other and make a great pair as characters. When they drink make sure anyone underage is out of earshot actually make that when their sober too.
Carter was M.I.A. during Claire's adventures in single parenting, since no name of phone numbers were exchanged, there was no chance of him being there for her. Claire had an effect on Carter from their one night stand and he was obsessed with finding this chick that smells like chocolate for five years with not much luck. When they finally find each other again more hilarity ensues. I love Carter, he was funny but a little calmer than Claire at least most of the time. He was so sweet and I loved his freak outs at what it means to be a dad and disciplinarian. Carter and his friend Drew also made a really good pair, I liked how they played off each other and if their is one person who I might need a mind wash after hearing what spews from their mouth and chest it would be Drew. I'm cool with message t-shirts just as long as it's not douchey.
Could someone get Jenny a dictionary and a What Are The Correct Words For Dummies book. Jenny definitely made me feel smart, It felt good that I knew all the correct words to the ones Jenny used. HA!
My most favorite character of all is Gavin, Ahh, sweet adorable mischief on two legs Gavin, you make me want to hug you and run for the hills at the same time. When "they" say kids are sponges they were probably talking about Gavin. I guess there was no helping this potty mouth four year old with all the drunken sailors around. I will say they tried their best to shield him and correct him a lot but it couldn't be helped. I think these guys had to be themselves at all cost putting a filter on them because a kid was around would not make them so real. Gavin was a very ingenious little kid, I do not know where he came up with the things he says, it seems Grandpa didn't help the situation any and was possibly the biggest influence with his choice of television programs.
I've never laughed so much reading a book before, I might have said that before but this was a different level of hilarity that's just out there, these were some funny and silly characters. I still can't believe some of the things that were said in this book, Tara Sivec is a genius and can really write humor. Besides all the cursing and dirty jokes, Seduction and Snacks was about making difficult decisions, great friends, courage, and of course love. There was a sweetly delicious love story behind all the laugh out loud's. You really need the funny when it comes to love. don't you? Drew surprisingly gives great advice, maybe once or twice, no I think once he gave Carter great advice, once. Liz was the best best friend to Claire, very supportive and kind. Funny as hell. Read it already.”
“This is the first book I've read from this author and I didn't read the reviews, so I wasn't expecting it to be really funny. I enjoyed it, and I was looking forward to reading about Gavin, the potty mouth kid.
I can't elaborate on it but I like the trash talking and it's amazing how Ms Sivec was able to blend in humor, romance, and erotica seamlessly. I can't wait to read the next!”
“When my friend KCLu read and reviewed this book and said it was one I had to read, I listened. We have very similar tastes and I knew if she loved it, I would too. I did love this book. It is beyond hilarious yet it has a very tender side to it. I love all the crazy characters with their even crazier personalities. Yes, they are sometimes immature but I know and hang out with a lot of people in their age bracket and sometimes, it happens. It's life, it's not always pretty but they are young and having fun just as they should.
There is so mistaking that Claire and Drew both made some huge mistakes when they first met but Claire has made the most of it and once Drew finds her he makes up for it in a big way. I like that Claire felt the need to get to know Drew better before they moved on in their relationship. I admire Drew for understanding Claire's needs and for accepting his son, Gavin. Gavin is a piece of work 4 year old and having taught pre-K for 6 years, I have to say what's cute at home will not fly in a classroom. Yes, I appreciate this character and I understand he's cute. But at some point, he has to be taught who is in charge. Claire, her father, and her friends have done the best they can with him BUT at some point, his behavior and mouth are going to get him in big time trouble. Did I enjoy every scene he was in, without a doubt but realistically this is the kind of kid that will wind up in alternative school in kindergarten.
This book will have you laughing out loud until your sides hurt. It will have you spewing your drink onto to your e-reader. It will also make you realize that sometimes the worst mistake can turn into something wonderful. It was a joy to watch this couple meet again, get to know one another, and fall fast and furiously in love. Well done!
“Absolutely LOVED this book! I haven't laughed out loud so much since Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series and honestly I loved this book more. The story was great, the characters amazing! Can't wait to read more!”Teri E wrote this review Tuesday, October 30, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
