Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers)
This one has been all the rage over the last couple of weeks with my fellow readers. Every once in awhile there is that one book out there that EVERYONE seems to love, no matter what their usual reading preference is, and this is one of ‘em! In fact, I just received an email from Janet this morning recommending it (yet again)!

I just had to write and tell you about this hilarious book I’m reading (at 35%), you may have already heard about it but if not you really should add it to the top of your TBR list.  It’s called Seductions and Snacks by Tara Sivec.  It is got to be the single funniest book I have EVER read.  It’s also a love story but this author does an incredible job with the story telling.  I HIGHLY recommend this book.

I’m right there with you Janet!! And pretty much at the same spot, too! Sweet, witty, funny, hilarious, it would appear this one is just flat-out awesome, and I started it last night as my final “birthday” treat of the day. What better way to end off an amazingly fun day, but with an uplifting romantic comedy? It was the icing on my “virtual” birthday cake. And by about 15% in I realized my cheeks were hurting from the silly grin that I was unconsciously wearing. And then I started chuckling out loud. Non stop. Yep! I’ve joined y’all in this fun read, and I already get what you’re raving about. This one will hook you right from the start.

Lisa: Hey Maryse. Have you heard anything about “Seduction and Snacks” by Tara Sivec? I read it last night and could not put it down! It is absolutely laugh out loud hilarious. Great book!

Amanda: I just finished THE funniest book I have ever read!!!!! Seduction and Snacks!!! If you haven’t read it go and get it!!!

Kristin: Wasn’t it awesome? Loved it!!!!

Tracy: Maryse…others have mentioned this book, but I read Seduction and Snacks yesterday and you MUST read it ASAP…it is the funniest book I have ever read..not only that, it is sweet, romantic and steamy! My husband actually made me read parts to him so he would know why I was laughing hysterically (and actually snorting in certain parts)…one of my favs this year so far!

Bitchie: I’ve noticed you are doing some darkity dark reads right now, so you’ll probably need a pick me up when you are done! Well this weekend I read a totally fabulous book that had me laughing my butt off the whole time I was reading it. It’s called Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec. It’s awesome and funny and sweet, and I think I even teared up once.

Maxima: I just have to tell you about a book I just read, it’s called Seduction and snacks by  Tara Sivec. It is the funniest book I have ever read, it would be great if you can also read it,  just try not to do it a 3:00 am I actually woke my husband up when I couldn’t stop laughing and tears were coming down my face, he actually sent me to the living room!  I loved it! I hope it makes your TBR list.

Convinced yet? I don’t even need to tell you what it’s about. I’ll save that for the official review. I went in not having a clue (nada) ’cause I knew I could trust that I’d be laughing too. And can you believe my luck? It was EXACTLY what I was expecting. It’s terrific having so many reading friends with the exact same tastes as me. After the extreme “MARYSE READ THIS!!!” response, I just knew I could go in blindly and be one with it. Like I always say… we have such great book taste!!!

So maybe y’all wanna read it with me? Let’s laugh together!! :)

I’ll end off with a personal recommendation from Colleen Hoover (one of my very favorite authors!!):

Seduction and Snacks? Have you read it? Soooo funny and sweet. Loved it. I had to fangirl her, she must be a riot in real life.

I started this book thinking that my expectations would be too high-that it wouldn’t be as funny as I thought because too many people have now built it up. But, it exceeded my expectations! Really loving it!!

Shushopn August 16, 2012 at 4:05 PM

Just finished this book! Seriously, it was beyond hilarious! Loved it!

Dominique August 16, 2012 at 5:10 PM

Thanks! This one just officially moved to the top of my TBR list. I downloaded the sample last week but haven’t gotten around to reading it but this is definitely the next one I’ll read.

nicki August 16, 2012 at 6:48 PM

One Word—- HILARIOUS!!!! :)

Courtney August 16, 2012 at 7:48 PM

Loved this book!! Couldn’t stop laughing and was a needed pick me up after recent books. I told everyone I knew to go out and read it.

Ash August 16, 2012 at 8:28 PM

Loved this! Easily 5 stars, my side was hurting from laughing so much!!

Kristina August 16, 2012 at 9:51 PM

You peaked my interest so I ran off and downloaded it. I am loving it! She is hysterical.

Maren August 17, 2012 at 2:09 AM

Ha, I also downloaded this because everyone seems to ba talking about it on Twitter. Still haven’t got around to read it, though.

Kathy August 17, 2012 at 3:12 AM

Hell’s. I can’t stop laughing and I’m only 20% in. I don’t know if my stomach muscles are going to survive this book. Thanks for recommending it.

Kirsten August 17, 2012 at 8:19 AM

Had a hard time putting this one down. So funny! You’ll love it all Maryse.

Anne August 17, 2012 at 9:12 AM

So far this book is just too funny. I am not even half way through it and I just can’t stop laughing!! :)

Lisa August 17, 2012 at 9:52 AM

Just downloaded for my weekend pleasure – well that and it is supposed to rain all weekend.

Erin August 17, 2012 at 10:20 AM

I started this one yesterday (about 75% now) and my husband kicked me out of bed last night because I was laughing so hard. When I tried to read him a passage, he didn’t find it as hilarious as I did, but what does he know? He’s such a crabby-daddy :)

Kirsten August 17, 2012 at 10:55 AM

Erin- I had the same issue. Hehe.

Keighley August 17, 2012 at 11:47 AM

I promised myself- no more books this month, but I’m in need of a laugh so I bought this. On page 4 and already laughing too loud for public transportation- anyone who quotes so I married an axe murderer is a legend!

Maryse August 17, 2012 at 11:59 AM

Oh YES!! I read a bunch of parts to my husband too, and he was all… *raised eyebrow*

I think if we didn’t irritate them so much with our incessant giggling, they might be more open to the comedy parts that we try to read them.

I kept saying, it’s hilarious, you just gotta read the whole part to get it…

Ah well. At least we’re having fun, right guys?

Angela August 18, 2012 at 3:27 AM

Thanks so much for the recommendation Maryse. It was a thoroughly enjoyable, witty and quick to read book that had me at times in tears from laughter!

Jacque August 18, 2012 at 8:20 AM

Started this book last night 60% through already, 5 stars! so hilarious, who needs sleep when you have a good book :)

Mrs. Orphan August 18, 2012 at 5:53 PM

Omg. I think this was the funniest book I have EVER read. And I half cried through most of it, it was so sweet! I have been semi-stalking your blog for a year now and I’m feeling guilty for just sweeping up all your recommendations all this time…thank you thank you thank you Maryse for feeding my book addiction! Your taste in books is ridiculously awesome.

Willow August 19, 2012 at 5:49 AM

This is THE funniest book I have ever read! but better than that it also had a sweet romance and some hot scenes – What more could you want? Thanks Maryse for another fab recommendation!

Barb August 19, 2012 at 6:56 PM

Chrystal August 22, 2012 at 10:52 AM
