New Release: Tonic by Staci 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.

☆☆4.5 stars☆☆
Staci Hart books are always a treat. not many authors can write with such feeling AND humor at the same time. Tonic is no different.  
No its important for me to say that if this was written by any other author I probably would have stopped after meeting Annika. I typically can’t stand the ice queen type heroines. I am more than glad I stuck with this one. 
Joel, that hairy fucker, is by far my favourite hero written by Staci. he is gorgeous, funny, hot tempered and just the right amount of flawed to keep him interesting.  
Annika is his polar opposite. She is frigid and closed up. She is ruthless and does not care how she treats the ‘meat puppets’ on the reality TV shows she produces. 
Until Joel. 
These two have insane chemistry and at times I’m surprised my kindle didn’t melt!!
Throw in a mean cat, a cute little girl and some show tunes and you have a really great read that had me swooning all over the shop and looking for the nearest tattoo parlour!

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.
