New Release: Tic Tac Love by A.M. Willard with 5-Star Review & Giveaway

14 Mar

Release Date: March 14, 2018

Cover Design: MadHat Books

 

Synopsis

 

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.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 STARS

I was so excited when I saw A. M. Willard had a new book out. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors! When I read the synopsis, I knew I would love this book, and I was right.

Paxton and Annabelle have been best friends since they were children. No one knows them like they know each other…their fears, their joys, and how to make the other smile. They share everything…except one important thing. They are in love with each other, but they have never told each other. Paxton has a job that keeps him away for long periods of time. When he is back in the States, he stays with Annabelle. This time when he comes back their sexual tension combined with tequila shots totally changes everything.

Annabelle is completely thrown off kilter. She has always loved Paxton, and when she planned on telling him while they were in high school, something happened (no spoilers) that made Paxton no longer believe in love. So, she has never told him because she would rather have him in her life as a friend than lose him forever. She has waited patiently to see if his outlook will ever change. Even though she is a matchmaker, she has put her own love life on hold. As you can imagine, with this new development, she is afraid he will run again. To say she is confused would be an understatement.

Paxton has always loved Annabelle too. Even though he questioned love, he knows with Annabelle by his side, it’s possible. As I continued to read more from his POV, I saw how devoted he has always been to her. Every woman needs a Paxton in her life, and we women who do have a Paxton in our lives, are truly blessed!

Willard really threw a twist in there that I wasn’t expecting. It will test their love for one another, yet it has the possibility of giving them both more than they thought possible. This is when readers will see how wonderful Paxton really is.

As with Willard’s other books, she has created some great secondary characters who really help make the book better.

A.M. Willard has written several different kinds of series in the romance genre, and each book is different. However, some things remain constants in her books…her humor and sense of family and friendship. Those two things are always what bring me back to her. She knows how to make my heart flutter, and her books ALWAYS leave me with a smile on my face!

To the Fall by Prescott Lane
Publication Date: March 8th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

TO THE FALL_Amazon_KOBO_iBooks (1)

You know the story.
Boy meets girl, they fall in love, two kids, white picket fence.
This isn’t that story.

This is more like . . .
Man meets woman. Man sleeps with woman.
Man meets another woman, sleeps with her.
And so on. You get the idea.

I own a small boutique hotel in New Orleans, the Kingston. I’ve seen men do some stupid stuff in the name of the woman they love, or at least the woman they love for the night.

That’s not me. I’m always in control. You’d be surprised how much you can get away with on just good manners and a smile. It’s the only way to keep my secrets safely locked away.

And my smile hides a lot. Until her.

She turns me down flat. Playing hard to get is my favorite game. It’s the thrill of the chase.

Only problem is, I think it’s me that’s getting caught.

Excerpt:

Dr. Lorraine laughs and pulls out her prescription pad. Scribbling something, she turns it to me. The title reads: The sex diet.
I bust out laughing. “You’re writing me a sex prescription.”
“Sort of,” she says. “You ever gone on a diet before?”
“No.”
“The thing with diets is, you usually start off strict.”
How did I know that?”
“No touching by either party, not even kissing.”
“Wait, not even a hand job?” I ask.
“You’ve got your own hands. Use them.”
She writes jerking off on her script pad, then puts a checkmark beside it. This is the craziest shit.
“Once a day as needed,” she says, writing that down.
“I’ll never make it.”
“How many times do you want?” she asks.
“At least twice, morning and before bed.”
She shakes her head. “Okay, twice a day,” she says and points her pencil at me. “That’s it.”
“I really don’t think I need . . .”
“You won’t be released from therapy until I’m satisfied you’ve completed this,” she says.
She has me by the balls, and she knows it. I can’t believe I’m being forced to agree to this, but what choice do I have? “I haven’t had sex in a couple days. Can I get credit for that?”
“No,” she laughs out. “Start fresh today.”
“Porn?”
“What about it?”
“Can I use it?” I ask.
“You don’t have enough memories to sustain you?” she asks.
“Good point.”
She gets to her feet and sticks out her hand. “Good luck.”
Shaking her hand and smiling, I’m sure I’ve got this.
I bite the inside of my mouth, realizing the old lady has tricked me. It’s Thursday. I’m not seeing her again until Tuesday.
That’s five days! Shit, what have I done?

Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

Another amazing read by Prescott Lane!!!
Pierce Kingston is the rich playboy owner of a boutique hotel in Louisiana. He has been court ordered to therapy due to his hotel being part of a prostitution bust. As part of the therapy, his therapist has asked him to do a 30-day no sex diet. This is a huge challenge for Pierce who admits he doesn’t go very long without sex. His struggle with celibacy makes for some hilarious times in this book especially since this book is in Pierce’s POV.
I should write a song. Instead of the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas,’ it could be ‘The Twelve Days of Celibacy.
On the twelfth day of celibacy, my diet gave to me: One set of blue balls, two chafed hands, three holes I can’t touch….
When Pierce hears of another local boutique owner’s death, Pierce goes to the hotel to scope things out and look into possibly taking it over. However, the late owner’s granddaughter, Sutton Presley, has inherited the place and already has plans for the hotel. With the sparks flying between Pierce and Sutton, he decides that Sutton will be his next conquest, no-sex diet be damned.
But Sutton has her own intimacy issues and isn’t about to be another notch in Pierce’s bedpost. Pierce decides to pursue Sutton anyway because he feels a connection he just can’t let go. It may finally be time for Pierce to face his own issues with the help of this new therapist and discover what he really wants for his future.
This book was so much more than I expected. I was drawn right in with the humor of this story but there is definitely deeper issues to be dealt with in this story. The twists and turns that this story took sometimes hit me right in the heart but Prescott did heal me as well. I loved this story!! Prescott Lane is a truly talented author who always deals with heavy topics in a sensitive, beautiful way.

Excerpt

“I’m sorry that I watched you walk way. I wanted to call you, to come to you after you and tell you what a mistake I’d made.”

“Why didn’t you?”

“I didn’t think you would want to hear from me.”

He bent down and placed his lips on mine, kissing me hard. “How could you think that? Walking away from you was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. My God, Tatum, I was in love with you.”

Tears escaped my eyes as he kissed me again, his hands running down the length of my body. They settled on my ass, and he pulled me into his body. I wrapped my leg over his hip, so he could pull me closer to him. It didn’t take long for me to feel his arousal against me; he was so hard and seemed much bigger than earlier. As his hands ran back up my body, they grazed the side of my breast, causing a soft moan to escape from my throat.

“Make love to me, please,” I moaned as he continued to kiss along my collarbone.

He stilled. “I’m not sure that’s a good idea, Tatum.” He looked from my eyes to my mouth and back again.

I lifted my head from my pillow and kissed him. “Please, show me what it’s like to be loved.”

When romance novelist, Kate Smith, finds her long lost writing mojo in the customer waiting area of a tire store, the complimentary coffee isn’t the only things that’s hot. But sexy mechanic, Miles Hudson, is just up for a friendly test-drive of her new book idea.

WWM-Front-small

Full Blurb

When romance novelist, Kate Smith suddenly gets writers block as she’s beginning the final installment of her international bestselling erotic Bed N Breakfast series, she’ll do pretty much anything to get her groove back.

Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room, because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee—smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot.

She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees only entrance.

But she’s way too intriguing to blow the whistle on.

Doing a test-drive of her new book idea sounds like a much better option.

Author QandAScared woman lying in bed and hiding under the sheet

Q: This book says “based on real-life experiences” …what does that mean?
A: Wellllll…let’s put it this way, the dedication to my book says: This book is inspired by real life events. Except for all the hot and romantic parts. My life is not nearly that exciting. So basically, it’s true that I snuck into a tire shop waiting room to write. And I brought countless friends and family cars in to write, just so I had an excuse to come in. But sadly, there was never a hot mechanic that caught my eye and wanted to jump into a friends-with-benefits situation with me. I’m pretty sure my husband would have wanted me to take a hard pass on an offer like that. 😉

Q: What inspired you to turn this experience into a story?
A: Wellllll, my agent initially! I started posting about my Tires Tires Tires excursions on social media and it sort of blew up. Like over 500 reactions to my posts when I was sneaking in…it was crazy. I’d never had so much social media engagement ever! And my agent was like, “Why are you not writing a book about a hot mechanic, Amy!” So, I decided to give it a whirl and let’s just say, the words flowed like that delicious complimentary coffee at TTT.

Q: Why do you think it flowed so effortlessly?
A: Well, I’m American and the majority of my books take place in England so that comes with a lot of challenges to make sure I’m writing true to their dialect. Basing Wait With Me in Colorado and using my own dialect was so fun and refreshing. It’s probably why I wrote it so fast! And I took a lot of the same crazy things that happened to me at Tires Tires Tires and used them in the story, so that gave me a great running start on the story.

Q: Since this book is based on your own experiences, how much is the heroine like yourself?

A: Kate’s voice is a lot like mine. Her humor, her sass. Her reactions. But honestly, that’s where our similarities end. She’s a redhead and she’s from Colorado her family isn’t very supportive of her career. My family is crazy supportive—so her background is truly very different from mine. As the book progressed, she really became her own person. She was super fun though and easy for me to write.

Q: That cover is HOT! Who is the model? Is it a real Tires Tires Tires mechanic?
A: Sadly, no. There’s a bunch of fun guys that work at TTT but I see them more as fun uncles…not sexy mechanics. The model is Austin Loes and he lives nearby, so we got to do the shoot in the TTT garage! It was a blast and he is PERFECT for this cover!!!

Q: Does this book have potential to become a series?
A: It does! There’s a couple of fun secondary characters in this novel that I’d love to tell their stories. And the recurring theme in the series would be that all the “meet cutes” happen in various waiting rooms.

Q: Where can readers catch up on the truth-life Tires Tires Tires full story?
A: I have a fun cliff notes version on my website: www.amydawsauthor.com/tirestirestires

Q: Are you still spending your days writing at Tires Tires Tires?
A: Duh! Complimentary coffee and cookies? I’d be a fool not to! Those guys at TTT have opened their arms to me and I love having a fun and unique writing place to go. It just goes to show that you can find inspiration in the most unlikely places.

Abby Walters fell in love with me when she was a child.

In many ways, she still is one. That sweet, sheltered good girl may look like a walking orgasm, but I know she’s innocent.

Too innocent for me, the renowned British playboy.

It’s ironic, isn’t it, that I’m the one spending my career in philanthropy while she toils away as a barista. The heiress to her own fortune, she’s terrible at this job. It’s all wrong for her.

But then so am I.

So why did I offer to hire her?

Because I want her close to me.

Under my control.

And in my bed.

It’s not like Abby’s going to tame me. Right?
