Futures and Frostings (#2) By Tara Sivic

Futures and Frosting (Chocolate Lovers, #2)

Carter, Claire and Gavin have formed the perfect little family. Their friends are getting married and everyone is growing up, maturing and ready to face the future. Or are they?

From bachelorette party hell, porn addictions, dinner roll baseball and botched wedding proposals to finding out everyone's extended family is chock full of crazy, Carter and Claire begin to question the strength of the ties that bind them. Unfortunately, these ties have nothing to do with fuzzy handcuffs and everything to do with the mounting differences between them.

Will their friends make a mess of things with their inappropriate comments and need to know everything, or will they convince the couple that happily-ever-after sometimes really can start with beer pong?

Thessa's Review:

4.5 Laugh-out-loud-I-might’ve-peed-(just a little)-in-my-pants Stars

**Warning: The following review contains crude language. Reader’s discretion is advised**

Oh sweet Jesus. Sweet mother fucking fuckery of fucks

Seriously, Tara Sivec is a woman after my own heart. I said the same thing after reading her first book back in July and I stick by that statement even more so now. I was unattractively laughing and snorting countless amounts of times while I was reading this, that I had no choice to share the humor with my husband…which BTW, had him snorting and snickering at what I was reading him. I love the crude language, the raunchy humor, the over-the-top usage of the words “fuck, vagina, cock, penis (or is it peni in plural? LOL),” etc…the list goes on an on. I don’t care; this humor is right up my alley. However, for you wankers who don’t like that language, it’s all good, yo. To each their own, eh?

Important phone calls **wink, wink**

So this story picks up where Seduction and Snacks left off. Carter, Claire and their four and half year old son, Gavin, are now living together. Throughout the book, Carter is trying his hardest to plan the perfect proposal to Claire. However, every time Carter is ready to ask, something disastrous happens and Carter cancels his current plan and tries again with a whole new arrangement. Poor Carter. All he wanted was to solidify his relationship with Claire. She however, keeps saying the wrong things at the wrong times, and Carter starts second guessing whether or not she wants a marriage or not.

Did you see that? The fuck I give. It went that way.”

The secondary characters are all funny in their own ways, but I think the best, and most hilarious, moments involve my two favorite characters: Four and half year old, Gavin, and Carter’s BFF, Drew. Yes, Gavin is over the top with his verbal vomit, but I don’t care. I love picturing this kid just the way he is. And then there’s Drew. Oh. My. God. What’s the chance of Ms. Sivec writing a book/series regarding Drew and Jenny? Or better yet, making Drew-inspired t-shirts available for purchase? My husband and I were laughing hysterically at each and every one of Drew’s infamous shirts.

Favorite Drew T-shirts:

#1 – “Drew has long since shed his tuxedo coat and white dress shirt, not really caring who sees the tee shirt he wore underneath that says “I’m not the groom, but I’ll let you put a ring on it” with a picture of a cock ring below the words.” – ROFLMFAO!!

#2 – “In honor of the wine tours that evening, Drew dons a shirt with a picture of a corkscrew on the front that reads, ‘I pull out.’” – Can you just picture that? Hahahahaha!!

#3 – “Have you seen my perfect man ass?”

Okay, okay. I’m done. I’m spent. I can’t laugh anymore. I just LOVE this series and I LOVE Tara Sivec’s humorous writing skillz. (Yes, I just ended that with a “z”…what of it?? LOL). I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us, but for now…Peace out!

OMG! I loved both of Tara's books. Funniest books I've ever read. I love all the characters. Especially Jenny and her Benjamin Wa balls. I think it would be so much fun to have a friend like her. A constant source of entertainment. HA! Oh, goodness! Now I want to read the books again. Great review!
