Overview

During the month of October, 100% of the proceeds from Tattoos and Tatas will be donated to breast cancer awareness.

Claire and Liz have always had a friendship that defied the test of time, but when one of them is diagnosed with a disease that every woman fears, their bond is put through the wringer. How do you cope knowing your soul mate could be taken from you?

Filled with memories of their life long friendship, inappropriate behavior, bad tattoos and shaving cats, the two friends will realize that laughter really is the best medicine.

Tattoos and TaTas is not your typical love story; it's a story of friendship and learning how to let go when something is beyond your control.

While this one is sentimental more than funny, it is a wonderful piece to the series. Absolutely loved the whole series. DO NOT try to read in a place that you are required to be quiet, absolutely hysterical laugh out loud series!

Grab a box of tissues, & sit down to enjoy a wonderful book filled w/laughter & tears. Telling a story of someone who is ill has got to be one of the hardest things to do. To do it w/such a clear grasp of what those who are struggling w/the fact that the person they love has been stricken w/a disease that could very well take their life, speaks volumes for the person  & just how very talented that Tara is,. My hat is off to you Tara!!! Well done!! Well done!!!

Tara does an amazing job of creating a story that leaves you with tears in your eyes from laughter and the emotional toll something like this has on a person. If you haven't read this series, your missing out on something amazing! The love these characters have for each other is amazing, and so is their humor. This group of friends wouldn't be able to deal with this any other way then to have some fun with it. Though some people make take offense, I feel that this story shows how most people would like to deal with their saddening news. I loved how Claire and Liz are able to make this into something amazing for Claire. This way, if the worst possible thing happened, she'll never regret a thing. This is a must read for any of you Tara Sivec lovers! Yes you'll need a box of Kleenex on the side for the emotional parts, but in true Tara form, you'll need them from laughing next.

I’m a long time fan of Sivec’s Chocolate Lovers  and the more recent Chocoholic series. Tattoos and Tatas was a good interlude between Chocoholics book two, Pasion and Ponies, and a book three if/when it’s released. With that said, I felt it was more a Chocolate Lovers book than a Chocoholics because the narrator is Liz (new narrator for the series, but an original character) and not one of the children of the adults in the CL books. it’s a small detail of labeling, but just something I wanted to point out for those who haven’t read the spin-off books yet. I feel that readers can still enjoy this novella having just read the CL series. Onto the story itself. It was a departure of sorts from the mood the other books had. More often than not, readers are laughing non-stop at the hilarious situations and dialogue between characters. Tattoos and Tatas takes the comedy down a notch or two to show a more serious side of life. To put it all out there: Claire has breast cancer. This book is about the gang supporting her through her treatment, but Liz is having issues with her best friend during this difficult time in her life. What helps this story not be a “cry your eyes out” story the entire time is that, as expected, Sivec is able to weave comedy into it and give readers some laughs without making it seem like the situation isn’t something to laugh at. To take a quote from the epilogue “I think people sometimes forget just how powerful laughter is.” Laughter is sometimes the best medicine during hard times. One of the few things I felt was lacking in this novella was the kids. With this being a Chocoholics novella, they’re adults at this point and are the focus of the series so far. We only get mentions of them and how they’re handling the situation, but they don’t show up more than that. The reader gets to see Carter (Claire’s husband) and how he’s dealing with it all, but we don’t see Gavin or his sister. The book’s from Liz’s point of view, so this is obviously part of it, though it was expecting a little interaction with the kids. This could also be something touched on in the next novel, so I’m not completely turned off by their exclusion. Tattoos and Tatas, another great and touching adventure with Tara Sivec’s beloved characters. It’s great to see Sivec blend in the serious into this otherwise hilarious series without killing its enjoyment. I’m looking forward, as always, to more Chocolate Lovers/Chocoholics books, especially after this short glimpse into things to come.

I laughed, cried and even snorted a few times. What a great tribute to women and friendship; and cancer survivors as well as those that have lost the battle. Well done Tara, well done!
