Passion and Ponies by Tara Sivec Sneak Peek and Giveaway

Passion and Ponies

No author has ever made me laugh as much as Tara Sivec. She has kept me on the edge of my seat in her Playing with Fire Series, and made me cry in the amazing Watch Over Me, and is combining her talents in the upcoming Shame on You (2/25). But the books nearest and dearest to my heart (and my vagina) are Tara Sivec’s Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholic’s books.

Oh, the things that have happened to me while reading her books! I honestly think my reviews for Tara’s books are my favorite ever. She’s totally inspiring (she inspires me to act like a 12 year old perverted boy).

Her next book in the series Passion and Ponies, comes out March 25th.

Passion and Ponies


Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods.

Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem – the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction.

While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places – Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed, her a$$ and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting “Friendship is magic!” during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him.

Ava needs to get her life in order once and for all before she finds herself doing something she swore she would never do – fall in love with a Brony.



Gavin shakes his head at me and tries reaching over my shoulder to take the towel. I snatch it away and turn to face him.

“What is your fucking deal? It’s a Goddamn towel!” I yell.

“Yeah, it’s a jizz towel, dude.”

I look at him in confusion, glancing down at the towel and back up at him when what he said finally sinks in. He’s biting his lip and I can’t tell if he’s trying not to laugh or if he’s trying to think of a way to run out of here as fast as he can.

“Hey, what are you guys doing in the bathroom?” Charlotte asks, suddenly appearing in the doorway. “Oh, my God! Did you just use that towel, Tyler?”

I quickly throw the towel away from me like it’s on fire and it lands in the toilet.

“Dammit, don’t throw it in the toilet, you’ll ruin it!” Charlotte scolds.

“I’m pretty sure you ruined it by putting jizz on it!” I scream. “Why the fuck would you leave a jizz towel on the sink where anyone could use it?”

Charlotte shoulders past us and uses the tips of her fingers to pull the towel out of the toilet and then tosses it into the sink.

“I’d never use it. I knew it was a jizz towel,” Gavin replies with a shrug.

“Oh, my God! I scrubbed my fucking face with a towel that had your dry, crusty jizz on it!”
