Release Day Blitz, Review & Giveaway ~ Tic Tac Love by AM Willard

Release Date: March 14, 2018
Cover Design: MadHat Books

Book Description:

For as long as I can remember, I've been in love with Paxton West. I've planned our wedding in my head a million times. What our babies would look like. How we would grow old together and still play our favorite game— Tic-Tac-Toe.

However, we have one problem. Paxton doesn't believe in true love, soul mates, or happily ever after. Oh, did I also tell you he doesn't want kids? It also means I can't explain to him that he's the only guy for me, or about my—our—current situation. The past started with a game of X's and O's. Then came the miles and miles that kept us apart. Next came tequila shots... They're never a great idea. Now, more than ever, the future scares the crap out of me. If my plan backfires, I could not only lose my best friend but the love of my life. Dang those tequila shots.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 3.5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

This was my first book by AM Willard and was an enjoyable read for me. The pages flew quickly, the characters were interesting, dialogue was great, low angst, more a push and pull of emotions, should I…shouldn’t I. This is a friends to lover’s romance with a little hint of second chance thrown in for good measure.

I must admit, I didn’t gel with this authors writing style in the beginning and it took a while to settle down and just read. However, the story soon grabbed my attention and as our characters who had been friends since school, start circling the possibility of crossing those invisible lines they had up since they began their friendship, things start to get interesting…and complicated.

“…when he’s here, I’m reminded of all the reasons I can’t find someone to love. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s because you can’t give your heart away to another person when you already did years ago.”

Friends since aged ten and now in their thirties, these two were the most infuriating and frustrating best friends EVER. I mean, both suffering from unrequited love, yet if they just spoke to one and other, this merry dance could have had its crescendo already. However, if they did that, then it would be one heck of a boring story. There is a lot of running away from feelings, fear of rejection, fear of ruining a twenty-year friendship, yet these two just fit together and the only ones that couldn’t see it, was them.

While their interactions were frustrating, it was real and relevant to these characters. Their friendship was beautiful, they knew each other inside out and these two really were each other’s soul mates. When a friendship is this cemented and this treasured then the thought of doing something that could potentially destroy it is not something you take on board lightly. When a lot of tequila brings those fine lines into question though…the possibilities could be endless.

This was a cute second chance romance, fast flowing and was an easy read. Enjoyed this one.
