Wouldn't You Like to be a Brony Too? It's the Beautiful Tara Sivec


Welcome to The Locker and a special feature. I had the awesome opportunity to attend and volunteer at the Houston Author Event, hosted by Emily Lalone, owner of Lalone Marketing. I met ten amazing authors and I want to introduce them to you too.
I spent quite a bit of time with her during the day and her genuine down to earth, funny personality really shines.


Today, meet the dynamite Tara Sivec. She is a USA Today best-selling author, wife, mother, chauffeur, maid, short-order cook, baby-sitter, and sarcasm expert. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children and looks forward to the day when they all three of them become adults and move out.
After working in the brokerage business for fourteen years, Tara decided to pick up a pen and write instead of shoving it in her eye out of boredom. She is the author of the Playing with Fire series On Goodreads and the Chocolate Lovers series On Goodreads Her novel Seduction and Snacks 

 won first place in the Indie Romance Convention Reader’s Choice Awards 2013 for Best Indie First Book.

In her spare time, Tara loves to dream about all of the baking she’ll do and naps she’ll take when she ever gets spare time.

She is the author of numerous best sellers and just keeps 'em coming. Please give Tara a warm reception and if you haven't had a chance--please check her out!!

Following is my review of Passion and Ponies-

Book Review *****snowflakes- yes folks 5!
Passion and Ponies by Tara Sivec – Book 2 of Chocoholics Series
I enjoyed Passion and Ponies better than Love and Lists. I relished the more detailed story line, and it was the plot that kept me reading, not the comic banter. This help give this read a 5 star rating for me.
This book actually made Ava lovable and turned her from a bitchy shrew to a savvy girlfriend. The unique tale that weaves Ava together with Tyler demonstrates that no matter how eccentric the person, deep down the compassion and friendship are the basis for a successful romantic union. Tyler gives this to Ava and completely changes her overall opinion that he is not just a quirky, silly guy with a fetish for none other than My Little Pony. He has a deep perspective and supports her desire for something outside the lines of her family’s expectations. He helps her chart the course for her business dreams and demonstrates how successful she can be. I think coloring outside the lines most of his life with his strange fetishes helps him be more accepting and supportive of anyone marching to the beat of their own drum.
This tight knit group has a wonderful story to tell and Tara takes creative freedom to places we never thought about and makes us laugh. What’s even better is the basis for what Tara writes is an actual phenomenon….BronyCon.
When you are ready to read something to clear the angst from your reading palette, take a chance on Passion and Ponies. It will make you smile and give you the energy to jump back into the drama we call contemporary romance and all the roads the stories lead us down. It certainly got me ready to read my next dark drama.
