It’s no secret that I LOVE Tara Sivec. My blog is kind of an homage to her! Seriously, almost all of my favorite reviews and special posts are with Tara. One of my absolute favorite series is her The Chocolate Lovers Series, and the spin-off, Chocoholics. In fact, I loved it so much I HAD to meet the author, and developed Wicked Book Weekend (before signings were a thing) just so I could meet her. This February will be her 4th Wicked Book event, and I’m not sure I’d do it without her!
But not only does she write the hysterically funny series, she writes emotional, fun and suspense, exciting mystery, tear jerkers and sexy as fuck.
Let’s go through them, shall we?
CHOCOLATE LOVERS (Covers go to Amazon)
Futures and Frosting: “Just this morning while he slept, I had left Carter a box of his favorite candy next to his pillow……..I figured it would soften him up to the note I placed next to the box telling him if he left the toilet seat up one more time and my ass got an involuntary bath at six in the morning I would put super glue on the head of his penis while he slept. I had even signed the note with a couple of Xs and Os. Who says romance is dead?” See my 5+++++ Star Review!!!
Troubles and Treats: “I’ve tried everything. I’ve whispered sweet nothings in her ear like, “My penis misses your vagina,” and “I heard a rumor that your love canal misses my jizz.” Nothing. I know, I can’t believe it either. ” See Interview and my 5++++++ Star Review (Also has the actors who would play the parts!)
Love and Lists (Chocoholics #1): “Oh fuck, I’m touching his penis. My hand is on his penis. I was so excited I didn’t even realize how hard I was squeezing his penis. And thinking about it just makes me squeeze it even harder.
So basically, I was choking the life out of this thing and trying to detach it from his body. WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING?! See my 5++++++ Star Review
Passion and Ponies (Chocoholics #2) “I swear as soon as I set foot in this place I hear a choir of angels singing. As far as the eye can see, row after row, aisle after aisle, box after box–are sex toys. Metal shelving from floor to ceiling filled with boxes of beautifully crafted love machines. I don’t even realize I’m mumbling until Gavin punches me in the arm. “Were you just chanting ‘This is my home; this is where I belong’?” See my 5+++++ Star Review
Tattoos & Tatas (Chocoholics 2.5): “Is there a book called “How to Talk to Your Best Friend When She Has Breast Cancer For Dummies”? I might need that. I’ve always been there for her when she needed me. I’ve always known the right things to say, why should now be any different?” See my 10 star review (May be my favorite book ever)
Emotional, touching and awesome… This story feels intensely personal.
The Fool Me Once Series is kind of like Sex in the City meets Janet Evanovich. Light, sexy and fun about 3 female P.I.s
I don’t need the help, but at least he’ll be pretty to look at. And maybe if he’s lucky, I’ll throw him a bone. Or he can throw me his bone.” See my review and Exclusive Tara video!
Worn Me Down (Playing With Fire, #3): I knew from the first moment she called me an ass that kissing her would be like a fiery explosion, neither one of us surviving without getting burned. She’s mouthy and she’s stubborn, but there’s a vulnerability buried deep down inside that makes me want to take care of her, consume her and protect her at all costs” See my review
Closer to the Edge (Playing With Fire #4): I haven’t read it yet, but Megan says it’s easily a favorite of the year for her.
Scorching hot (see what I did there?) with an epic second chance romance, suspense, angst and humor. And a hot, dirty talking fireman.
Branded (Ignite Trilogy #2) Jan 12: Add to Goodreads I CAN’T WAIT!!! I need to buy batteries!

What is a sex word you hate to read and would never write:
MOIST. MOTHER FUCKING MOIST. Not even cake should be moist. It should be soft and delicious, never moist.
Your favorite couple (that you wrote):
DJ and Phina from Branded (Ignite Trilogy #2)
Favorite book written by you:
Watch Over Me
Your favorite non-book related activity:
Sleep. Wait, no. Sex. How about sex and then sleep? Or maybe just sleeping while having sex. I’m like a baby. Never, EVER wake me when I’m sleeping.
The weirdest fun fact about you:
This probably isn’t fun, but it’s definitely weird – I don’t like chocolate. I know, I know, I have a series called the Chocolate Lovers! I don’t exactly HATE it, but if I was dying and that was the last thing to eat, I’d probably just die hungry.
A new holiday tradition you started that you love:
I love them all, but how about one I hate? That fucking Elf on a Shelf. Why in the hell did I ever think this was a good idea? It was fun the first year. We did these elaborate scenes with all their toys every night or pulled shit from the pantry so it looked like the elf was making cookies. Now it’s just a shit show where the hubs and I argue about whose turn it is. We forgot to do it the other night and the kids were all distraught. My husband blamed it on me and said I went to bed too late and the elves couldn’t go back to the North Pole. Asshole. This is pretty much how it goes now at 1am: Him: “Honey, did you do something with the elf?” Me: “Awww, son of a bitch. I’ll just throw him in the freezer and say he’s making snow cones.”
