"I’m pregnant."

Molly Gilmore had a good life before she uttered those two stupid words. While preparing to graduate from culinary school and building up the courage to make a move on her hot, sugar-cookie-smelling pastry instructor Marco, she can't wait to finally have the GREAT life she’s always dreamed about, instead of just the good one she’s been living.

Always known as the quiet ninja, she fully intends to stay hidden in the shadows with her nut-job family, so they have no chance to embarrass her around the man she's crushed on for two years. Unfortunately, her family has other plans. When they yank her straight out of her comfort zone, she finds herself starring in the craziest train wreck she's ever witnessed.

Molly ultimately gets a more exciting life that doesn't revolve around school, but she's pretty sure the man of her dreams won't be sticking around long after her family gets ahold of him. There aren't too many guys who can handle smelling like pee, having the whole world know how he masturbates, and being forced to eat an entire bag of dicks.

Join the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics gang for one final story about love, baked goods, making poor life choices, and remembering how important family is—even if they drive you insane.

Mostly because it's illegal to kill them.

I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

I’m not even sure how to deal with my feelings of loss over the end of this series. I mean, it seems like only yesterday I met my favorite mouthy four-year-old, Gavin Morgan and his hilarious, yet lovable mother Claire. I read these books to my niece over breakfast to make her read them, I read quotes to my BFF at work to make her read them (and we then proceeded to email our favorite quotes to each other during work lol). These books have taught me a plethora of brilliant swear word combinations. I was there for the births of Claire and Liz’s children (kind of) and now they’re getting married and having kids of their own. God I’m old. Tara sent this series out with a bang. From the first page to the last, I felt like I was laughing with my friends. Claire, Liz, Jenny, Carter, Jim, and Drew were at their absolute best. Or worst depending on how you look at things lol. They’re the characters I fell in love with in Seduction and Snacks.

Molly has always been the “ninja” and I was happy getting her tale. While she may not be as bat-sh*t crazy as the rest of her family, she still got hit with the crazy gene. Thankfully, Marco is well versed in crazy family. I loved their chemistry and the way they weren’t scared off by the other’s family. Marco handled his hazing from Jim, Carter, and Drew like a champ, and Molly didn’t go running upon hearing about Marco’s teenage tube sock habits. Together they were a recipe for perfection! I’m not gonna lie, the ending had me tearing up reliving some of my favorite memories from this series. It’s all Tom Brady’s fault. GD you Tom Brady *shakes fist of fury*
