I love Tara Sivec books, and I loved the first two in this series.


5 stars


“I’m pregnant.”

Molly Gilmore had a good life before she uttered those two stupid words. While preparing to graduate from culinary school and building up the courage to make a move on her hot, sugar-cookie-smelling pastry instructor Marco, she can’t wait to finally have the GREAT life she’s always dreamed about, instead of just the good one she’s been living.

Always known as the quiet ninja, she fully intends to stay hidden in the shadows with her nut-job family, so they have no chance to embarrass her around the man she’s crushed on for two years. Unfortunately, her family has other plans. When they yank her straight out of her comfort zone, she finds herself starring in the craziest train wreck she’s ever witnessed.

Molly ultimately gets a more exciting life that doesn’t revolve around school, but she’s pretty sure the man of her dreams won’t be sticking around long after her family gets ahold of him. There aren’t too many guys who can handle smelling like pee, having the whole world know how he masturbates, and being forced to eat an entire bag of dicks.

Join the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics gang for one final story about love, baked goods, making poor life choices, and remembering how important family is—even if they drive you insane.

Mostly because it’s illegal to kill them.

Is there any author out there funnier than Tara Sivec? Seriously? If there is, I haven’t met them yet. I love her Chocoholics and Chocolate Lovers Series! I laugh so hard every time I read one of her books, I usually end up with side cramps. Tara may be full of the crude humor that I love so much, but she is also such a great storyteller! The book flowed really well; I never felt like a single chapter was lagging, dragging or missing anything.

Marco was seriously funny. The poor man had NO IDEA what he was getting in to with Molly, aka, the Ninja, and her family. (They call her the Ninja because she seems to always be lurking in the background, sneaking up on you when you don’t even realize she is there.) I had to give Marco credit though, as if I were him, I am not sure I would have stuck it out; I may have run for the hills screaming, especially when Uncle Drew introduced the Meerkat! (F***ing Tom Brady…)

As it was with the other couples in this series, the story of Molly and Marco was not just about love, but about lifelong friendships and those you choose to be your family. Although they are a crazy bunch of half-idiots, I love them so hard, and wish I they were real so that I could hang out with them, even if just for a night!

Being that this was the last book in a series, I was really trying to make the book last. I didn’t want it to end so bad, I kept trying to put it down so I could look forward to it the next day; but alas, I loved it so much I couldn’t really put it down and kept reopening my Kindle to finish reading.

5 plus stars, this was one of my favorite books of the year!
