Futures and Frosting by Tara Sivec

(Chocolate Lovers series, book 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?

“My mom’s not afraid to punch a kid.” – Gavin

Sweet mother of God, Tara Sivec has managed to do it again. What is ‘it’, you ask? Well, let me tell you. She has managed to make me fall in love with someone who is simultaneously causing me to pee my pants from laughter. Now, I’m not a love doctor or anything but as far as I’m concerned, that folks, is true love. Tara: if I liked vagina, I would be avidly listing the reasons why you should switch teams. And I’m pretty persuasive, just so you know. Lucky for you, I like the peen…but if you need a “sister from another mister” type in your life, I can make some room in my friend circle! Just sayin’…

So I bought this book the day it was released, but I put off reading it for a week or so. I just loved Seduction and Snacks so much that I was nervous the sequel wouldn’t live up to it. Well, that and I didn’t want to face the reality that this series was over. I actually started and finished this in one day (while at work…so you know I was super productive at work that day) and I am ecstatic to say that this book is absolutely as good as Seduction and Snacks.

The plotlines were perfect, and I love that we got more of the supporting characters in this book!! Drew was even funnier this time around (his proposal idea had me fucking rolling) and GAVIN!!!...sweet mercy, that kid is such a little spitfire and because it’s not my kid cussing up a storm and telling the flower girl at a wedding that I’m not afraid to punch a kid, it’s not just funny; it’s beyond f*cking hilarious!  

Oh, and here’s a fun little tidbit for you: I cried during the book. Cried like a little fucking baby. I’m sure anyone who has read it can probably guess what part I’m talking to, but it involves beer pong. I think that’s the first time I’ve cried over beer pong…or let’s just say it is so I can maintain some of my dignity…

I honestly don’t have anything negative to say about Futures and Frosting, other than the fact that I’m pissed it’s over! Seriously, if you haven’t read this OR Seduction and Snacks, you should be punched in the ovaries because you are dumb and hate funny things. If you aren’t dumb and don’t hate funny things…and more importantly, don’t want to get punched in the ovaries, READ THIS BOOK NOW! Oh, and ladies: I have to side with Claire on this one...spitters are, in fact, quitters. *shrugs*

This is by far one of my favorite series and if I ever hear someone say a great love story can’t begin and end with beer pong (as all great love stories should) this will be my response……
