SUMMARY:
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 disconnected 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 REVIEW:
Oh. My. Gosh. Tara Sivec is freaking hilarious! From the moment you start Troubles and Treats to the moment you finish the book, you will have laughed more times than you could ever remember. Drew and Jenny. Ahh, those two are pure comedy.

With Drew working his ass off to relieve his poor penis of having had no playtime with his wife's vagina for the past year, he is determined to get their sex life on and poppin'... or rather, BACK to on and poppin'. Since the birth of their son Billy, Drew and Jenny are no longer doing it like they do on the Discovery Channel. lmbo. Sorry, could't help myself. Failed attempt after failed attempt, Drew finds himself a new resident of the dog house and the only relief his shunned penis does get is the occasional visit from Mr. Hand that is doing nothing to tamp down his sexual frustration.

Troubles and Treats is a really easy book to read. Tara Sivec keeps the ball rolling and there is not a moment where there isn't any funny. I literally had to stop reading this book, because I was updating my Facebook/GoodReads statuses with every other line I read. In the first book, Seduction and Snacks, you get a good glimpse of Drew's infamous t-shirt collection. Well, there isn't a shortage of those in Troubles and Treats! I'm seriously thinking about getting my own printed. lol. There wasn't really anything I didn't like about this book. Some parts were predictable to me, but it was a Oh-My-Gosh-Cover-My-Eyes-I-Can't-Read-About-This-It's-Making-Me-Feel-Embarrassed-And-I'm-Not-Even-In-The-Book kind of predictable. I was peaking through my eyes to see if I was right... and I was. lol But... I'll let you pick up the book and read it yourself so you can have that kind of moment too ;)

Troubles and Treats is definitely a Laugh-Out-Loud Bust-Up-Laughin'-And-Watch-Random-People-Look-At-You-Weird-While-You're-Wiping-The-Laughing-Tears-From-Your-Eyes kind of book. I would most definitely recommend it. 
MY RATING:

GUEST POST:
Since it’s the Christmas season, I thought I’d share with you guys the fun activities that our Elf on the Shelf has been up to.  If you’re not familiar with the Elf on the Shelf, it’s this little stuffed elf with a plastic face dressed all in red.  He comes with a book and the book tells you all about his job as Santa’s helper.  Every night after you go to sleep, the elf goes back to the North Pole and tells Santa if you were good or bad that day.  When he comes back, he forgets where you left him and always ends up in a different place where you have to find him.
Since I’m a loser, I never actually bought the official Elf on the Shelf.  I had never even heard of it until two years ago.  It was too late in the season at that point and I couldn’t find one anywhere.  So I went out and bought a little stuffed snowman.  The kids named him Frosty and he’s been pretty good at keeping them in line.

This year, we decided to have a little more fun with Frosty instead of just putting him in different places around the house.

Yep, that’s Frosty being pinned by John Cena while everyone else watches.  What you can’t really see off to the right is slutty Barbie with her arm wrapped around Santa’s shoulders.  Santa is getting himself some skank action at the wrestling match.           ———>

Frosty decided to have a little party while we were asleep.  Yes, that’s a lampshade on his head.  And Barbie can’t hold her Mountain Dew.  Party animals!


Frosty has also removed the stockings from the fireplace and replaced them with underwear, and TP’d the living room and was found riding on the blade of the ceiling fan.

I don’t know whether the kids are having more fun with this or mom and dad are ☺
