Release Blitz & Review ~ Tonic by Staci Hart

Author: Staci Hart
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 13, 2016


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.

When it comes to romantic comedy, Staci Hart always knocks it out of the park. Tonic is funny, passionate, and full of heart. Joel and Annika are the perfect match even if they don't look like it. It's just like they say, opposites attract.

I loved how Joel is smitten from the start, wanting to get to know everything about this beauty. And when he finally gets his hands on her, the heat skyrockets. He's a giver and a taker and everything in-between.

Annika is a strong, independent woman with a feisty attitude. Although she's bold and a hard worker, she's hiding something from her past. Joel isn't what she ever thought she'd be attracted to, but as time goes on, she finds that he's everything she could be looking for.

Their relationship isn't always easy, but if they work through the issues that comes their way, it could be the best thing either could have ever asked for.

The way Staci pulls you into the story is stunning and Tonic is stellar example of that. There is some drama that will tug at your heartstrings, but nothing that will leave you perplexed. There is also a cast of characters that will compliment Joel and Annika's lives.

Tonic is a love story that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for something funny, heartfelt with just a touch of drama to enjoy after a long day.

Author Bio

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, even 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. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.

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 sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.
