Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives – well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.

With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren’t on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack, and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.

Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the discontented duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple’s lives.

In the third and final installment of the Chocolate Lovers Series, will Drew and Jenny find the spark that’s been missing in their marriage, or will the trouble they’re having cause a stickier situation than the time Jenny poured honey all over Drew and he fused himself to a tree?

My Thoughts:

This series is the best and funniest series that I have ever read! I don’t think that I have ever laughed so hard. I enjoyed this one just as the other ones but when it all comes down to it the first book is my favorite by far! I know that this is the last in the Chocolate Lovers series but I do honestly hope that in a few years she does a spin off of the kids as they are in college or what not. I think it would be GREAT! 🙂

Now for those who have not read the other book please do because then you will understand a little more about Drew and Jenny. I think for anyone who just picks it up and reads will be completely lost and probably will not be able to appreciate the relationship as well as their personalities. They are a lot to take in if you don’t get worked up to it 😀 I did laugh quite a bit there were some spots that I just couldn’t stop laughing thinking to myself you cannot be that dumb; but then have to remind myself that it is Drew and Jenny we are talking about.

Jenny is always messing up metaphors and cracks me up but I think I would go just as crazy as Liz goes when she is forever messing them up for example:

“I’m not going to hold my breast for another invitation.”

I could never imagine what it would be like to be married to a man like Drew, I would probably go crazy, but Jenny is perfect for him. He is the most random person and does the weirdest things ever but had me cracking up the entire time I read I mean who else would have a husband who would do one of the strangest things I have ever read when Jenny thinks that there is something wrong with their cat and is going to call the vet:

“I had the phone in my hand all set to dial when Drew had finally decided to tell me that he pooped in the litter box a few times to see what it was like.”

At the same time that I was cracking up the story also is a bit realistic I mean anyone who has had babies knows that when you are done having babies the last thing you feel is sexy and attractive and ready to have great sex. Plus you have to wait which usually works out just fine. (or it did for me at least) And to be honest the last thing I had thought about was what my husband had to go through while I was in “recovery”. But after reading Drew’s description I couldn’t stop laughing; partially because well we have that sponge bob shower curtain in our boys bathroom it is a huge sponge bob face!

“In fact, gone are the days of having sex at all. I have resorted to jerking off alone in the bathroom after my wife’s asleep. It’s a sad, lonely existence when you have to take your cell phone into the shitter so you don’t wake your wife when you pull up the YouPorn app and crank one out. The worst part is the Sponge Bob Square Pants shower curtainin the bathroom. Do you know how difficult it is to keep an erection while Sponge Bob is staring at you with his big, googly eyes and you keep hearing the song “Jellyfishin’, Jellyfishin’, Jellyfishin” in your head?”

AND I LOVE that she used FUPA! 😀 we have used that for years in our house! as I was reading I was like I know that word! Whenever I use it around people they look at me like I am crazy because they don’t know what I am talking about. But that was thanks to my husband, him and the guys he worked with in the military were talking about FUPA’s. haha

There is so much that I loved about this book I could go on and on but wont do that… just know that there are so many funny parts you will laugh throughout the book. I mean who wouldn’t with Devil cats, Zombie invasions, and sexless sex swings, along with the ghost Drew swears is in their room. hahaha I am sure I am forgetting some other great moments, but if you really want to know more I say just go buy the book and get started on it! You will laugh! I will be adding these to my at home library!!

About Momma's Books

Found my new love for books when a good friend sent me the Sookie books and I was stuck in a paranormal state and only wanted that then I came across Shayla Black and read her Wicked Lovers Series which got me into the contemporary romance with a "twist" and since then I have just been a reading fanatic! And LOVE every minute of my escape from reality. View all posts by Momma's Books
