“These books have gone from funny and outrageous to ridiculous and trying-too-hard.”
~ Under the Covers

Molly Gilmore knew helping her sister out by pretending to be pregnant, to cover Charlotte’s pregnancy would be a huge mistake. Especially when she ends up roping in the guy she has been crushing on for two years and the only progress she has made is sneakily taking a whiff of him. She knows Marcus is bound to right screaming once he encounters her certifiably insane family, especially when they think he has knocked her up and yet…he seems to fit right in, Molly can’t help thinking, should she be scared or relieved?

So, we come to the end of the Chocoholic series with Baking and Babies, I’ve been reading Sivec, especially this series and Chocolate Lovers since 2012 when Seduction and Snacks was first published. And, what I have noticed since then, is that my ratings on her books are slowly decreasing, I adored Seduction and Snacks and it got five very well deserved stars, it was fresh and funny with some outrageous characters ready for you to love. Now I am reviewing Baking and Babies and giving it two point five stars as, after three years I feel like this Sivec has squeezed all the goodness out of this formula and now all we are left with are a few dregs. These books have gone from funny and outrageous to ridiculous and trying-too-hard.

But Baking and Babies did make me laugh, no matter what Sivec always seem to be able to coax a giggle out of me with the antics of Molly, Marcus and crew. This book did feature all the characters you know and love from the previous books in this series and the Chocolate Lovers as we say a final goodbye to them. It seemed though the book was crowded with so many familiar faces that it obscured the romance. Molly and Marcus were nice together, but I don’t really feel like I saw enough of them.

This book was okay, it entertained me, but I felt more relief than sadness once I had finished it. spacer

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?
