Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers #1) by Tara Sivec

From Goodreads: -

Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.

When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.

With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse.

This book is hilarious. While some people may think it's too much or ridiculous, it's all depends how you see it. Sometimes I think can a person has so many embarrassing moments? Anyway it's just a fiction after all. And I kind of enjoy reading it.

When I first started reading, I was like, what kind of person is this Claire? But then soon she got my respect. A person who swear not to have any child, who determine not to give birth to any child since young, would accept having a baby after a one night stand, where she did not even know who the father is. She did go try to search the father of the child. But without the name it's hard and she did not manage to find him. And yet she did not give up on the baby. I think not anyone can do that. Her best friend, Liz, was a jewel. A friend that hard to get.

While Claire could not forget the father of her child, as she was looking at his eyes every day from her son. On the other hand, Carter also could not forget this woman who he had one night stand with for the whole 5 years. While he did not know her name, too wasted on that night to remember her face, but he definitely remember her unique chocolate scent. He even went to search high and low on her after that night. So in actual, both of them were looking high and low for each other, but seems like fate had them missed each other until 5 years later. Their son, Gavin was a cheeky little boy. You would never get bored with him around. Hahahaha. I was laughing out loud especially reading the part where Carter was getting 'poop' talk from one of the father that he met at the library, and how Carter got panic after that. That was epic! My another favorite scene was when Carter met Gavin for the very first time, at Claire's shop.

Seduction and Snacks is a hilarious and yet a sweet romance. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

Easy by Tammara Webber

From Goodreads: -

Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret
Sometimes, love isn’t easy…

He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.

A groundbreaking novel in the New Adult genre, Easy faces one girl's struggle to regain the trust she's lost, find the inner strength to fight back against an attacker, and accept the peace she finds in the arms of a secretive boy.

I came across this book randomly from a book review website and decided to give it a try. And I love it! I'm really glad that I did not give this book a miss. It's beautifully written. I just can't put it down!

The storyline and the characters are well developed. I love to see how the heroine grow throughout the whole story. From hiding behind as a victim closed to being raped, to bravely stand out to do the right thing to report to the authority, the author has done a good job in showing how the victim, the family and the community reacts in such sensitive issue. On top of that, the author did a very good job on the plot, and the development of the characters. Lucas, appeared mysterious and complicated at the beginning. But as I read more and more about him, he had my full respect. He's not only smart, but he's hardworking and independent. And he knew what's the right thing to do. I like the way he treated Jacqueline, how he won her heart, slowly and naturally. I was immersed to the story right from the beginning. There were several parts that I just could not hold back my tears. This book was simply amazing.

I enjoy reading this book very much. It is one of my favorite. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.
