Drew and Jenny - the racier and crazier couple from the Chocolate Lovers series now have children. After their last child Drew witnessed Jenny in labor and has been having nightmares about vaginas. He was never very mature so I wasn't surprised at this little revelation. Sadly for Jenny, Drew's irrational fear of vaginas has left her self conscious and uninterested in sex. Once Drew comes round from his stupid fear it's too late and Jenny has disconnected from their relationship to focus solely on the children. He takes it upon himself to reawaken their sex life despite being the murderer of it in the first place but Jenny barely registers his attempts. Drew's journey makes for another amusing read by Sivec.
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 discontented 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?
While Jenny and Drew were definitely the funnier of the three couples introduced in "Seduction and Snacks" this final book isn't as funny as the first. Thankfully it's much more entertaining than second which really was the worst. Despite all of the couples have a level of immaturity to their relationships but Drew was by far the worst. Yet in "Troubles and Treats" we see him grow up a little. His selfish and egotistical attitude gets thrown for a loop and his has to learn that surprisingly the world is not all about Drew. So while it seems this book is solely focus on Drew getting sex back in his life it becomes much more. "Troubles and Treats" is about rediscovering the spark of a relationship when that relationship has changed far beyond where it began. There are still laughs to be had at weird antics and witty quips but it was time these characters came to their happy ending and Sivec rounds the Chocolate Lovers series out with a satisfying click.
