SynopsisAva 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, her a$$ 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.

ReviewChristine’s 4 STAR Review!

I LOVE LOVE everything and anything by Tara Sivec.  Whenever I am in a book funk or need something uplifting, I know that reading one of her books will do the trick.  Passion and Ponies was no different.

Tara gets me every single time.  There aren’t many books that I will read aloud and laugh out loud and have to share with my husband but Tara’s books do this for me each time.

Admittedly, I had NO IDEA what the heck a “brony” was but I have definitely learned a thing or two reading Passion and Ponies.

I love Tyler, his funny antics and every word that comes out of his mouth.  Watching his relationship and feelings for Ava change over time made me see him in a new light.  Yes, he says dumb things and for the most part is immature but underneath it all he is a kind, gentle soul who listens, supports and wants complete happiness for the people he cares about.

I enjoyed Ava in this story – her strength to finally stand up for the things she believes in but to also see her grow from her conflict of feeling attracted to Tyler while thinking he is a complete idiot had me really rooting for this couple to work out despite their differences.

The sex was completely HOT, the story both funny and with some interesting reveals that will keep you on your toes and joyfully immersed in Tara Sivec’s world of characters you just can’t help but fall in love with and want to be a part of.

Job well done and I look forward to more from this fun loving series that consistently brings a smile to my face! <3
