"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."
The contradictions of this story is what totally made it! I loved seeing how all of the opposites had to work with each other and how they blended together!
"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."
I'm really not sure what I expected out of Tonic when I started to read it, but I am so glad I opened those pages. Joel and Annika really show how you should never judge a book by its cover and there is always more than meets the eye. The ups and downs of all the emotions will captivate anyone who reads. I love covers and how they attract you to a book and when the book is as beautiful as the cover, it makes me the happiest reader around!
