“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.”
