RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Spicy Pickle by JJ Knight

Title: Spicy Pickle 
Author: JJ Knight 
Genre: Romantic Comedy 
Release Date: March 16, 2021

First, she tampered with my pickle.
Then, she got us both kicked off a cooking show.
Now, we’re fake engaged.
Sit back, friends, this is one crazy tale of treachery and pickle juice.

All right. Here’s how it went.
My pickle went viral. Millions saw it. Thousands ate it.
Hold up, pervs. Let me backtrack.
I invented a very spicy pickle made with ghost peppers. One bite and you’ll swear someone stuffed a hot coal in your mouth. It’s extremely popular in pranks.
I’m in the middle of filming with a prominent cooking show when in walks Little Miss Perfect Pants from a rival deli to insist she has improvements for my pickle.
It all goes downhill from there.

Read the reviews and weep, Anthony Pickle.
I got the best of you on reality TV.
You got me back with a very public kiss.
After your new deli poached on my territory, I swore to hate you. But every time those smoky eyes meet mine, I melt a little.
Cheesy, right?
By the time you've kissed me, I already know I’m in deep.
But then you propose?
How am I supposed to keep faking it when every swoon is real?

Spicy Pickle is a romantic comedy about a culinary feud, potent pickle juice, 
and the most not-fake fake love story in the history of reality TV.

This book had me laughing from start to finish and I absolutely loved it! One of my favorite tropes is the enemies-to-lovers, and this one combines enemies-to-lovers with a fake romance that becomes something more. The chemistry between Magnolia and Anthony is pretty hot, despite them being business rivals, although things go way too far with the rivalry between the family businesses, thus necessitating the fake romance portion of the story. The snarkiness between these two is hilarious, but man, once they start opening themselves up to each other, that's when it becomes all smexy and their fake romance starts looking real.

She glances up when I enter the room that adjoins our two hotel suites. I could kiss our cooking tour publicist for this arrangement.

“Hey!” she says. “You got fancy sleepwear from the designers, too.”

I sit in the chair next to her. “You got some?”

“You bet I did. It was mixed in with all the fancy dresses for the talk shows. But I won’t be caught dead in it.”

Now she has my interest. “What is it?”

She runs her finger down the room service menu. “Wouldn’t you like to know?”

Yes. Yes, I would.
