Love and Lists is the first book in the Chocolate Lovers spin-off Chocoholics:
The foulmouthed 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 SexEd course gone wrong, and a slew of other
mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure this 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 your penis" is the first "to do" item...
"Oh no you didn't. Oh, Charlotte. You Spidermanned the one you love."
"Tyler shouts the names of My Little Ponies when he comes. And he makes horse noises with his lips when he's going down on me."
Where to start? Gavin is all grown up and helping with the family business. Charlotte has just graduated from college and is trying to decide her path in life. This book is written from Gavin's point of view. We meet his best friend Tyler, who reminds me of Drew, a little. Gavin wants to get Charlotte to realize he is in love with her. Tyler tries to help him by making a list of things he can do to get Charlotte's attention. As always, there is craziness that ensues with this group of friends. I love that Claire still thinks of Gavin as a little boy but Carter is much more realistic. Of course, now I want to go back and read the entire series over again. I just can't get enough of these characters! 4.5 out of 5!!!
