Read:: Tonic by Staci Hart

Ever been in a the spot of 'Between a Rock and a Hard Place'?? This is what I was thinking reading most of this book. 

Annika is assigned to a reality TV show and she is to do a job. This job is a hard one, a tough one, long hours and many days together with Joel. As she becomes closer with Joel the harder it is to keep the separation between job and personal separate. She just wants to go a great job and take care of her parents who she wants to retire and enjoy life. 

Joel, the big soft lug who tries to be the big bad tattooed wolf. I loved him. He was hard, soft, loud, quiet, and inside his own head at times but he was so damn sweet. 

These two keep their romance on the down low until they cant anymore. Until Annika has a job to do. Until they have to choose between the job and love. 

Thankfully for us love prevails. Staci as always tells a great story, she continues to keep our loved favorites from other books. She really knows how to put your there, on the barstool, in the chair of the tattoo artist just watching and listening to this love story unfold.

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.
