Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Ellis has always had the love and support of his family ever since he was a little boy and couldn't stop talking about his penis. He's also always had their unsolicited advice and uncanny knack of embarrassing him at all costs. Now that he's an adult and trying to convince the love of his life to love him back, things haven't changed very much from when he was younger.
When Gavin's best friend Tyler suggests he make a to-do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is one-hundred-percent on board: after a few six packs.
After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a Sex-Ed course gone wrong, and a slew of other mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure this list will be the death of him.
Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn't always the best idea. Especially when "Show her your penis" is the first "to-do" item...
Where to buy
I was super excited when I heard about the Chocoholic series...I knew if it was about Gavin as an adult it was going to be hysterical, and boy was it!! I don't know how she does it, but Tara Sivec never disappoints!! Every time I think, ok...she's done it all, there's nothing else she can dream up that would be as funny as this...but somehow she just does. And it's not as funny, it's usually funnier!! Let me just say that I don't think I'll ever be able to look at My Little Ponies the same!!!
This book quickly became one of my favorites and I'm already anxiously awaiting the next in the series. Thankfully, she writes super quick so I doubt I'll have to wait too long!! Don't add this to your TBR list...just bypass the list all together and start reading immediately! I guarantee you won't be able to put it down. (I suggest you start reading it early in the day, or you'll end up like me being up most of the night and then being a zombie the whole next day!!)

About the author
Tara Sivec is a wife, mom, chauffeur, cheerleading coach, soccer coach, babysitter, short-order cook, genius and albino squirrel hunter. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two kids. In her spare time she likes read, write and cover things in chocolate. Most of her material comes from real life experiences with family and friends. Lucky for them, the names have been changed to protect the innocent (aka, drunk).
Tara also writes under the pen name T.E. Sivec where she can be serious, suspenseful and not at all funny.
