Tattoos & Tatas 
(Chocoholics #2.5)
By Tara Sivec
Release Date: October 1, 2014

Thank you for joining us for a very special blog tour.  Not only do we get to review this  book and share an offer from the author, but get to promote Breast Cancer Awareness.  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.

If you have enjoyed the previous Chocoholics books, you will know who these characters are and what they mean to each other, so bring on the Kleenex. This is a story about friendship to the deepest degree.  I'm getting teary-eyed just thinking about it. 

Claire and Liz have an enviable friendship.  They are simpatico in almost every way:  their likes, dislikes, sense of humor, dreams, language, tastes.  They just get one another. They are true soul mates. They have each other backs. 

Then Claire announces she has cancer and Liz doesn't know what to do. Being a "fixer", Liz doesn't know how to fix this problem.  How do you respond when you feel so helpless?

Tara Sivec is writing about an all-too common situation. Too many of our friends and love ones have or had cancer, and as a friend or relative, that helpless feeling can leave you shocked at best and running away at worst.  I've been there and I was rendered immobile.  To this day, I feel guilt and shame that I wasn't there enough for my dear friend. She had her family and didn't want people to fuss over her, but I really feel that I should've been there for her more.  She is a cancer survivor and I am so grateful that she is healthy today and I've vowed to always try and be present in her life. 

This is a beautiful story told in a humorous and irreverent manner by the author.  I laughed out loud and cried my eyes out. I appreciate Ms. Sivec for sharing this heart-warming story reminding us again how we can support our loved ones during this time of crisis.
