Blog Tour : Tonic by Stacy Hart


Tonic by Staci Hart
Release Date : October 13th
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Joel Anderson doesn’t take anything seriously.

Not his relationships, which have been few and far between since his brutal divorce. Not the drama of working in a tattoo parlor, which seems to be around every corner. When things get him down, he smiles and cracks a joke. But he’s not the kind of man you cross, or you’ll find yourself at the wrong end of his fists.

Annika Belousov takes everything seriously.

Like her job as a reality television producer, given that she typically has something to prove. Or her love life, which is defined by a series of requirements — affluent, ambitious, accomplished, to name a few. Definitely her family, who worked their whole lives to afford her every opportunity, a sacrifice she doesn’t take lightly. When she’s tapped to produce a reality show at Joel’s shop, she doesn’t think twice, just goes in for the kill, as if there were any other way.

The second Annika walks into Joel’s shop, he makes it his mission to crack her open, but she’s not having it. He’s all wrong — too crass, too hairy, too un-serious. But it doesn’t take her long to find out there’s more to him than smirks and tattoos. And what she finds could put her career and his heart on the line.

Not that Joel cares. Because for the first time in a long time, he’s found his tonic.

This is the second book of Staci Hart's that I am reading.The first was Wasted Words, which was a cute and heartwarming read.Tonic was quite different from it.First let me just say I appreciate the cover!It's really cute to look at and I think it captures the essence of the main characters perfectly.

Joel owns a tattoo shop named Tonic with his brother Shep.Upon Shep's insistence Joel agrees to star in a reality show that will feature the shop.One of the producers is Annika Belousov who is cold and an ice queen.She intrigues him and he wants to get under walls(and into her pants as well ;) )But Annika doesn't want anyhting to do with him despite the attraction between them.

They are complete opposites.Annika - the focused and independent woman who is seen as cold on the outside, but secretly has a heart full of love who is close with her family.Joel- the hot,hairy,tattoed guy who lives to experience and get the most out of life.Soon, one thing leads to another and Joel's persistence pays off.They fall into bed and soon spend more time with each other between the sheets and out of them as well.Usually Annika keeps her professional and personal life separate.But now everything has gotten tangled up.This could very well put her job on the line.So what will she do when she has to choose between her career and her heart?

The characters were amazing and the writing was equally beautiful.The chemistry between Joel and Annika was well done.I loved the difference in their personalities and how the author brought them together.The story was written beautifully in a manner that just captures your attention.
I would definitely urge you to read this book if you're looking for a light romantic read -low on the angst but with lots of feel. :)

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
