What I am going to remember most about this book (and this series) is the sarcastic, over the top, crude humour I absolutely adored it! ~ Under the Covers

Drew needs to form a plan, his former sexy wife has turned from a sex kitten to using a sex swing as a baby rocker. He desperately wants the spark back in his marriage and is willing to do anything to get it. Jenny is exhausted between looking after two toddlers and the over grown child she calls her husband all she can fantasize about is sleep. Can they both get what they want?

I am so sad this is the final installment of the Chocolate Lovers series! Each book has been so good, making me cry with laughter at the crazy antics of this group of friends. But I am glad we get a glimpse into Jenny and Drew’s life, they are both completely bonkers and thus perfect for one another; it was great to be able to see thing from their POV.

This book was centered on how Drew and Jenny are trying to get their sex life and their marriage back on its crazy kinky track after having two children together. But this wasn’t all it was, it also showed what a genuinely loving and close couple they were, which in the previous books I don’t think you ever saw. So although there are a crazy amount of wet-yourself-funny quotes in this book I liked this one the most:

After the last few months, I realize I don’t care about anything but being with her. She is my best friend and my life, and I will do whatever she wants me to do as long as she’s happy.

But, what I am going to remember most about this book (and this series) is the sarcastic, over the top, crude humour I absolutely adored it! I have regularly had to actually put my kindle down and just laugh it out before I could start reading again it was so funny, this is not a book you can read and still expect to appear dignified in public.

I highly recommend the Chocolate Lovers series and Troubles and Treats was a fantastic ending to a fantastic series and I am definitely going to be picking up whatever book Tara Sivec releases next!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
