Title: Passion and Ponies
Author: Tara Sivec
Series: Chocoholics #2
Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods.
Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem – the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction.
While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places – Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed, her a$$ and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting “Friendship is magic!” during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him.
Ava needs to get her life in order once and for all before she finds herself doing something she never wanted to do – fall in love with a Brony.
In the first book we find out that Ava and Tyler are sleeping together so this book coming next was not a surprise. I will have to say that I was excited to get it as well because I kind of loved Tyler. He reminded me so much of Drew. I love Drew! He cracked me up in the Chocolate Lovers series as well as this series. I also LOVE that we get to still see the old gang from time to time (Liz, Jim, Claire, Carter, Drew, Jenny). I know that many will say that these books are just so over the top and dumb. I have read many reviews that state just that about the books that have these characters in them. I will say that I disagree 100% why, you may ask? Well, I enjoy finding a gem of an author that can make me laugh so hard while reading. I have some books that I will laugh at some parts or giggle from time to time, but Tara can write a book that will have so much craziness in it that I laugh pretty much throughout the whole thing.
Although I absolutely love the kids I will have to say that the original gang is still my favorite. I also was surprised that Gavin turned out as “normal” as he did. haha Compared to Tyler and all. I mean what are the odds that his best friend would fit so well into his family? I am excited to know who will be next though.
I was pleasantly surprised that there was more romance in this one. I love that Tyler got in touch with his girly side. 🙂 There was a lot that went on in this one I didn’t laugh as much as the other and that might be in part to the fact that there was more real life stuff that anyone could relate to. Like working a job that you are not happy with. Wishing you could get paid to do something that you love. Just things that I NEVER would have expected in a book for Tyler and Ava. I enjoyed that though. Tara never seems to amaze me when it comes to her humor though. I just sit and wonder what it is really like in that woman’s mind. Hell her home. haha Tara is definitely the kind of peep you would want in your life. It seems like having someone like that in your life could only make your day better.
Now for those who want to know what it is about these two that draw you in, well it is the love hate relationship they have. They hate that they can’t stop thinking about how awesome the sex is when they are together. But damn it if Tyler is not the most random person, as well as think and say some of the strangest things. I have wondered though if in some way that is what goes through most men’s minds and he is “weird” because he just says what he thinks. I know the brony thing is not the norm. But lets face it everyone has their own strange thing, if you say no you are a LIE!
I know that when a book that is a part of this series comes out it will be a fun and quick read and always a nice break from the normal more emotional reads that I enjoy reading. If you are looking for something light, funny and just awesome this is one that must be read.
It isn’t just funny, I learned a few things. I had to look them up, but it is always fun to learn new things such as…Sacofricosis, Ederacinism, Mucophilia and Oculotinctus. Always a good time explaining to the hubby what this is and why I am looking it up. 🙂
(Some of the funnies stuff EVER!)
“Pull my reins, bitch!”
“So you’ve taken up watching horse porn now, have you?”
“Oh, my God! I scrubbed my f*@king face with a towel that had your dry, crusty jizz on it!”
“Either you have a really tight vagina, or a really loose a$$hole because I didn’t even notice.”
“..have to see this guy…about a thing. Just…this…thing and a guy with a thing…that I need to see.”
“I like dirty talk. I LOVE dirty talk. What you’re doing is not dirty talk. It’s ‘weird as fu@k’ talk.”
“Sometimes I like to cover my hand in glitter and then jerk off with it becuase it makes everything pretty like a rainbow…”
“It’s like porn and Christmas morning, all rolled into one.”
“I JUST SAW GAY PENIS!…...My penis prefers the pink and yours likes the stink…”
