5 Fun Stars for BIG PICKLE by JJ Knight

He’s kind of a big dill.An enemies-to-lovers, secret boss, gut-splittingly hilarious rom com from USA Today bestselling author J.J. Knight.
They call me Big Pickle.It’s not what you think.(Although that’s true too.)
I happen to be the oldest Pickle in the family deli business. And we have the best salami.
Take that one however you like.
But when my father announces the franchise will go to the most profitable of the three brothers, I learn that even though I’m the biggest Pickle, I’m dead last.
I hightail it to Texas to see what’s happened to my restaurant, only to find a sassy little spitfire named Nova Strong in charge.
She’s amazing. She’s sexy. She’s perfectly happy to call bullsh*t when she sees it.
But despite the way we nearly melt the permafrost in the industrial freezer, I have to control myself. Nova thinks I'm a new employee. She has no idea I’m only there to spy.
Or that I'm her boss.
As I get to the bottom of why my franchise is failing, I desperately need to know one thing:
Is Nova Strong everything wrong with my deli, or everything right for me?___
Big Pickle is a full-length, 300-page standalone romantic comedy full of pickle jokes, giggle-worthy references to male anatomy, and more salty language than a jar of baby dills.

Sue thoughts

Big Pickle by JJ Knight is the first book in the Pickle series.


Jace Pickle is the oldest of the three Pickle brothers.  When his dad announces that he wants to retire he indicates that there will be a contest and which ever store wins, that is the son who will get to run the entire company as well as the Manhattan Pickle.

Currently, Jace’s store, Austin Pickle is in last place for profit.  Considering Jace never goes to the Austin Pickle because he is too busy with his playboy lifestyle, he has no idea why business is so bad.  Jace comes up with the idea to show up undercover at his store and spy as to what’s going on.  When Jace arrives he immediately clashes with Nova Strong, the closest thing to a store manager.  It seems the actual manager, Susan, is on medical leave….for the last six months… Hawaii!!!!  Nova is beyond frustrated trying to run the store with no authority to do anything.  When Jace shows up claiming to be Jason Packwood who is friends with Jace and is there for a job, Nova is skeptical, but after talking with Jace’s assistant realizes Jason is for real.  What Nova doesn’t realize is that Jason is Jace and that Jason is his real name.

The more these two work together, they more the chemistry starts to ignite.  Jace is caught between wanting Nova and wondering if she is stealing from his business.  As Jace starts to get to the bottom of what is really going on, things with Nova are progressing and they finally start dating.  Just when it seems that things are perfect, Nova finds out who Jason really is and everything blows up in his face.  It will take a lot of soul searching for these two to realize that they really belong together and they do it in the most perfect way which will lead to their happy ever after.

I just freaking loved this story!  If you are looking for a fun, laugh out loud romance read this book.    I loved both Nova and Jace/Jason.  Nova is such a strong female and really was the responsible one in her family.  Jason was the fun loving playboy who fell so hard for his leading lady.  I loved all the secondary characters too!  They were all a hoot!  Great book and I can’t wait to read the others in the series.
