“With a feminist nature and a diverse set of characters, this book is a wonderful piece of fiction. The protagonists are imperfect but it’s easy to fall in love with them because they are perfectly written. They are deep and their motivations are clear. The plot is unique, complex, and surprisingly touching. Gin’s Tonic will teach you that love can exist in many forms, but it should start with yourself. Gin’s Tonic by Olivia Owen is a combination of heart-warming drama and sultry romance. Highly recommended to all those readers looking for a second chance in life and in love.” – 5 STARS Risah Salazar for Readers’ Favorite
“Gin’s Tonic is perfect for readers who crave high heat romances, following a journey from broken to better, found families, and strong heroines who help themselves and find love along the way.” – Sarah Storin, award winning author of contemporary romance.
What mends first? A shattered heart or a broken mind?
What began as a series of misunderstandings catapults into urgent need, as Gin finds herself forced to make an impossible choice, staying faithful to memories of the past or living for the future.
I’m not who I used to be.
Losing them turned me into someone I don’t even recognize. I’m not even sure I want to know that person.
So I ran.
But that was just a change in longitude and latitude.
When I met Roman, my insides were a twisted, decayed, knife-edged thing I was sure no one would ever want.
But he took every crushed bit of it and demanded more.
He’s as scarred on the outside as I am on the inside, but somehow, we fit together like two jagged pieces of the same fractured puzzle. Our tortured pasts brought us together—then ripped us apart.
Falling for him was inevitable. So was losing him.
Girl meets boy, girl loses boy, but maybe…girl gets nothing at the end.
Happily ever after just isn’t meant for people like me…right?
Gin’s Tonic is a steamy, angsty, mature, small town romance featuring a Chinese-American heroine who is stronger than she knows. This is the story of a perfectly imperfect woman and the tall-dark-and-brooding hero who proves to her that love after loss is possible.
Olivia Owen is new to the world of writing romance novels (long time reader, first time writer). Every once in a while, she finds it is necessary to push out of her safe little box and do something that kind of scares her. This is definitely one of those things. She has a soft spot for bulky, brooding male leads and the awkward, relatable women those guys just can’t help but love. In her free time, she can be found cooking with just a bit too much butter, contemplating having Lasik surgery to increase her chances of survival during a zombie apocalypse, and (much like her novel’s heroine) having coffee in her garden while conjuring up happily ever afters.
