What it’s about:

A Friends to Lovers Romantic Comedy

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.

Read an excerpt:

My Thoughts:

Tic Tac Love is a cute friends-to-lovers story with AM Willard’s special little twist.

Annabelle is a cute, perky matchmaker who is hopelessly in love with her lifetime best friend Paxton. Since she is convinced the feelings are unrequited, she silently longs for her friend. Unbeknownst to Annabelle, Paxton feels the same way about her. However, his dream job requires a lot of travel. Of course, this means the two aren’t available to explore the relationship they both secretly desire.

Ms. Willard’s latest romance is a quick read. The plot is straightforward, and it is well paced. The supporting characters were all fun. Paxton and Annabelle’s mutual friends put up with quite a lot from these two. I appreciated the low angst level; it is primarily about the worry of losing a friend if the hidden feelings were revealed. I was beyond frustrated with Annabelle’s irrational thinking and Paxton’s need to runaway to get his head clear instead of just speaking from his heart. Of course, without that conflict, there wouldn’t be much of a story. Essentially, I was as frustrated by the hero and heroine as was their circle of friends and family!

Tic Tac Love is an adorable, light romance with a smattering of humor and a heartwarming denouement.
