Love and Lists is the first book in the Chocolate Lovers spinoff – Chocoholics: The foul-mouthed offspring tell their stories.

Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Ellis has always had the love and support of his family ever since he was a little boy and couldn’t stop talking about his penis. He’s also always had their unsolicited advice and uncanny knack of embarrassing him at all costs. Now that he’s an adult and trying to convince the love of his life to love him back, things haven’t changed very much from when he was younger.

When Gavin’s best friend Tyler suggests he make a to-do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is one-hundred-percent on board: after a few six packs.

After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a Sex-Ed course gone wrong, and a slew of other mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure the list will be the death of him.

Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn’t always the best idea. Especially when “Show her you penis” is the first “to-do” item…

HILARIOUS!! Exactly how I have felt after each book in the Chocolate Lovers series and I feel that exact same way about Love & Lists. If you’ve read the Chocolate Lovers series or then you get the gist of what this story will be like & if you haven’t read the series then I seriously recommend that you do before you read Love & Lists. Beware – there were many times I almost peed my pants laughing so hard while reading each book.

Gavin Gavin Gavin…you never really did grow up! Still talking about your penis constantly but it’s still totally hilarious! I absolutely loved Gavin and the girl he was in love with (not going to spoil who it is..you’ll have to read it to know). I loved getting both POVs and I honestly knew exactly what she was up to right away!

All the characters from the Chocolate Lovers series were completely involved in the story. I seriously loved getting to have some time with those characters and seeing that even 20+ years later…they are still the exact same immature and perverted people!! FYI – Tyler is JUST like Drew so be prepared!!
