Passion and Ponies (Chocohlics #2) by Tara Sivec


Passion and Ponies (Chocoholics #2)

Synopsis:

Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods. 

Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem - the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction. 

While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places – Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting “Friendship is magic!” during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him. 

Ava needs to get her life in order once and for all before she finds herself doing something she never wanted to do – fall in love with a Brony.

Review:

Let me start off by saying that Passion and Ponies is not my type of humor. I am not the best person to review this book since it is just not what I like. So I did not enjoy this story, I did not find it really humorous, but if you like this type of thing you might enjoy it. This might get ranty so don't read further if you enjoyed this story.

So what is the humor in this book? What is the story about? Well it is all about sex or sexual innuendos. Seriously the entire story is sexual innuendoes, people talking about sex, or people having sex. Every single conversations has sex inserted into it somehow. The one character is going to propose and a giant fisting sex toy is a huge part of the brainstorming how to scene. It was ridiculous, but not in a way I like. It is over the top and it is just not what I find funny.

"'A sex toy mill. It's like a puppy mill but worse. All of these sex toys crammed into boxes with no light or air, just waiting to die. It was so hard to just save one when there were so many who could use out help, but we saw Duke and we knew he had to come home with us,' Drew explained, hugging Duke a little tighter to himself."

If you find that hilarious then you might enjoy this book. Or jokes about dolphin rape survivor groups (I almost stopped reading at that point. In hindsight I probably should have). Or characters who can only talk about sex. Every single one. Or people who complain about the one character being immature when every single character in the book is. Or lots of sexist jokes about how guys can't talk about emotions and stuff.

"'Can we stop pretending like we have vaginas? I don't want to talk about my feelings, Dr. Phil.'"

or

"He's got blonde, surfer-boy hair that is long enough for me to grab onto, but not so long that he needs to put it in a ponytail. That's a deal breaker for me. If you need to borrow one of my ponytail holders, you need to pack up your vagina and leave."

Oh how hilarious...seriously if you find this stuff funny than this is the book for you. If not then stay away. I don't know how I made it the whole way through actually. I picked the book up for the MLP Brony aspect, but that was ridiculous to me. It seemed more like the guy was into horses, not necessarily My Little Pony. They are kind of different, but maybe that is what someone with a MLP fetish would be like...I did try to look it up but didn't see anything with whinnying or prancing or acting like actual horses, but I didn't look that hard so I could have missed it. I love MLP and didn't really want to watch it as porn. So it was a bit of a let down.

I also didn't like how all the girls are sluts and bitches and hookers and such. Every person talked about women in this way. The ladies called themselves this, the guys called them this, everyone. Hilarious...Ugh this book made me angry. I know most of these things are supposed to be jokes throughout the book, but they were not funny to me. They just annoyed me.

So yeah, I am definitely not the person to review this book since most people seem to not have an issue with the things I do. So if you are thinking of reading this book my advise? Download the sample. If you find it funny and want to read that same thing through to the end of the book then read on. If you don't then just give up. It doesn't change and get better. So it is up to what you find funny. For me this is not it, but apparently a lot of people love it so....I know my sense of humor is not the same as most.
