Okay guys, this is, hands down, the most HILARIOUS romance I have ever read!!!! 😀
No book has EVER made me laugh this hard. I giggled, squeed, snorted, and cried with laughter to the point where I’d have to stop reading in order to catch my breath!! PURE FUN!
But the best part was that it wasn’t just a funny story – it had everything! It was oh-so-swoony with some seriously omg-fan-yourself H.O.T and steamy bedroom scenes and an absolutely heart-meltingly sweet and beautiful story about a family finding each other and coming together… just all-round WIN!! Easily one of my favorite reads of the year!
Claire doesn’t want kids. Ever. However, one drunken college party one-night-stand with a gorgeous swoony guy whose name she doesn’t even know later, she finds herself pregnant.
“I took eleventy-billion home pregnancy tests, after drinking a gallon of milk so I would have enough pee for all of them… [then] I Googled “milk and pregnancy tests” to make sure I didn’t just spend 37 minutes of my life staring in horror at positive pregnancy tests… because pasteurization messed with the hormones and created a false positive.
It doesn’t, just in case you were wondering.”
She searches everywhere trying to find the guy she slept with but with no luck. At the same time, we get the alternate POV from Carter (the gorgeous swoony guy she slept with) who also has been searching everywhere trying to find her. Fast forward 5 years later to present day, Claire is a single mom whose passion is baking but who now sells sex toys with her best friend so she can make money to care for her 4-year-old son, Gavin. Then one day, randomly, out of the blue, Carter shows up in her town and she then finds out that he too has been trying to find her since that night in college. Granted, he’s in a bit of shock to find out that he has a son, but soon takes it all in stride and wants nothing more than to be the best father he can be and finally get a shot to be with the girl he’s been dreaming about for the past 5 years.
Beware, I don’t think I’ve ever read the word ‘vagina’ (or ‘penis’) quite so many times. There is nothing subtle or delicate about this book, but it totally works in the context of how the story unfolds.
The characters were amazing, endearing and hysterical, the plot was fun and engaging, there was no bad guy, very little drama, no stupidity, the writing is witty, the sex is HOT (no ‘closed doors’ in this book!), and the story will undoubtedly warm your heart and leave you with a delightfully happy feeling 🙂
C’mon, doesn’t this make you laugh?!
I decided… I was going to be a labor and delivery consultant. I was going to stand next to every single woman in labor and every time.. the woman’s husband said something stupid like, “Just breathe through the pain,” it would be my job to squeeze the living fuck out of their reproductive organs until they were curled up in the fetal position… and I’d say “Just breathe through the pain, asshole!”
I absolutely LOVED it! It has a very happy ending, but its clear that there is more to the story. When I got to the end, I stupidly sat there trying to flip the last page of my kindle over and over again cuz I couldn’t believe it had ended. Book 2 “Futures and Frosting” though is already out if you want more!!
Seriously, everyone HAS to read it!! Highly recommended if you love to laugh!!!!

I love this book too. It was the funniest book I’ve read and, like you , I kept trying to flip the last page on my reader hoping it would magically add more. It ended to fast for me so I’m looking forward to the next one.
I honestly thought something was wrong with my kindle lol. I was about to freak out at Amazon for not giving me the whole book 😛
But it ended in a totally non-cliffhangery place so I’m happy! Just VERY much looking forward to book 2 (and 3, 4, 5, 6….??.hahaah)

I love, love, love that you give us characters to picture with each book.
Just finished Seduction & Snacks and agree… by far one of THE funniest books ever.
I’m so happy you like the pics 😀 I love having visuals as I read!
I can’t wait for book 2!
I got as far as the first quote in your review and I am in tears from laughing and I am at work attempting to “work”. Thanks for the review, I must get this one, NOW. LOL. And those pics are definitely easy on the eyes 😉
Ok that was hilarious! Never laughed like that at a book! Hands down one of my favourites! Have you got any links to who you think would be Claire and Carter? I just cant picture them yet!
I do actually!!
Here’s are the model/actors that I think look most like the characters:
