Summary

After accidentally exposing himself to his son's girlfriend, and realizing that because of his over-hanging stomach, she couldn't actually see anything, Eric Baxter decides it's time he went on a diet. Unfortunately, due to an exercise allergy, and an eating obsession, it isn't going to be as easy as he first thought.

Throw in a battle of wits with his neighbor's cat over toilet rights to his garden, a son who lives in the shed and dreams of being discovered on The X-Factor, a stroppy teenage daughter with a Wayne Rooney fixation, a wife who doesn't want to sleep with him anymore, and an amorous work colleague who does, and you have all the ingredients to Sex, Lies and Chocolate Cakes.

Good tale for a light hearted laugh

If you could sum up Sex, Lies and Chocolate Cakes in three words, what would they be?

Short, but funny.

What did you like best about this story?

It it written in a style that I love - diary! I love the Bridget Jones and Adrian Mole style of writing and comedy in everyday life. Just a normal bloke, living everyday life: wife induced dieting, dealing with teenagers, stalking the cat from next door, avoiding the advances of a work colleague and sexting for the over 40's.

What aspect of Steve White’s performance might you have changed?

This was not the greatest narration. I can't quite put my finger on why, although the attempt at the female voice wasn't quite right. None the less I enjoyed the story, and the funny parts definatley came through in the narration.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have listened to it in one sitting as it is very short, but also, I found it funny enough that I could have done so if I had the time.

Any additional comments?

I need to know what happens next! The story ended in a way that a follow up could easily be done.

Disappointed

I think I'd have enjoyed this better if I'd have read the book myself. The narrators attempts at accents were off putting and the sound of the pages turning are distracting and unprofessional.

I did finish listening to it but it's few hours of my life I shan't be able to retrieve.

Laugh out loud!

This book has something everyone can relate to. We've all done or thought something that Steven Morris has written about or at least know someone who has!
I think all of my family would like this book.
Steve's narration tones can be out of context at times but he manages to highlight the quips

More Cake Please

I am not a person that laughs at stupid jokes on the tv so not sure what to expect of this story, however I am pleasantly surprised.
I am new to audiobooks and it can be off putting for me with somebody narrating, takes a bit getting used to.
I find the story was interesting and funny too, I wondered what could happen next to the poor man, that exercise bike just sitting taunting him.
I think a lot of us can relate to the way the children are too and as for that cat, I better not say, grrrr.
Temptation is never very far away and comes in many guises.

The narrator I did find was enjoyable, love the accent, it must be hard for a man to do a woman’s voice, numerous actually, but It was ok, I couldn’t do it so I am impressed with how this worked out.
I got this book for free.

Sex, Lies and Chocolate Cakes

I received this audio book at my request and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

This book was done in the style of a diary, the only negative I have was I didn't care for the sound of the pages turning at the start of each new day. I loved the narrator, he brought the main character to life. I loved the humor and I did laugh out loud. Warning don't listen with little kids around, it has much adult content. It ended in a bit of a cliff hanger but I do have the next book so I will happily listen to it right away.

Every time I see chocolate cake I will think of this book

Sex, Lies and Chocolate Cake I must admit had moments where I could not stop laughing. It starts out a little slow but it is definitely worth listening to. The narrator Steve White 's voices were hilarious. I received this audio book at my request. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Slow, but Okay

It was slow and had humor. Not what I was expecting, but still worth finishing.
