GIVEAWAY, Guest Posting and Review of Spicy with a Side of of Cranberry Sauce by Rachell Nichole

Book Blurb:
Amy Easton's idea for the perfect Thanksgiving doesn't include giving up the last can of cranberry sauce to a stranger, no matter how sexy he is. She will make this holiday special for Dad even if it kills her. And that means getting everything on the shopping list.

Mason Rider is home to help his mom through her first postdivorce holiday, but when he finds the seductive blonde who body-checked his grocery cart standing in Mom's kitchen, he doesn't know what to do. Sharing Thanksgiving with this woman and her father wasn't part of his damned plan.

Who would've thought that a simple can of cranberry sauce could lead to holiday disaster? Or to happily ever after?
Book Clip:
Where the hell was the cranberry sauce?
Amy Easton turned down the baking goods aisle, searching for the last item Martha needed her to get. She had to find the damned can. This holiday would be perfect if it fucking killed her. The chains on her boots jangled as she hunted. The gallon of milk and box of stick butter froze her hands, but the store had been out of carts, and Martha needed both ingredients for first thing in the morning.
Amy dodged an older lady pushing a heavy cart and still didn’t spot the right display. The stock boy had told her it was on aisle six, and here she stood. Cranberry sauce-less. Sighing, she turned back around and headed up the aisle again, gazing left and right. She forced herself to slow down, fearing she’d miss the display. Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be the same without cranberry sauce.
Martha was a domestic goddess. The way Mom used to be, the way Amy would never be. So when Martha had panicked after failing to get in touch with her son on his way from the airport, Amy had volunteered to go get the groceries. She would be useless in the kitchen tomorrow, so it was the least she could do. Besides, it got her out of the house and away from the smooching her dad and Martha kept doing when they thought she wasn’t looking.
It was sweet, really. Amy couldn’t be happier with the way her dad was slowly coming back to life under Martha’s tutelage, but she could do without seeing him making out.
She wanted to throw her hands up or punch something. Where the hell was it?
She spotted the display across the end of aisle six. One lonely can sat on the shelf, as if it waited just for her. She hadn’t thought Martha was the kind of person to leave the shopping till the last minute, but apparently a few items had slipped her mind this year. With her and Dad down visiting, she wouldn’t be surprised if Martha was a little worried about how the holiday would go.
A tall man with reddish-brown curls was heading down the aisle across from hers, his gaze locked on the can. Oh, hell. She didn’t know where else to go around here to find the sauce. She had to get to it first. She picked up the pace, and just as he turned the corner at the end display and reached for the can, she bodychecked his cart. The cart slammed into the shelf and pushed back against her. It bounced into her hip, and she fell back onto the hard floor, the milk and butter crashing to the linoleum beside her. The jug burst open, splashing milk all over. Okay, not the most brilliant idea she’d ever had. She glanced up at the man’s stunned face just as the can of cranberry sauce flew off the shelf toward her.

Angie J's Review:
 I received this book from the author for a truthful review.  Also can I say she rocks because she volunteered to giveaway copies of her books peps!!! 

Ok so this story I found pretty funny with the banter and very hot with the sexual chemistry.  Imagine finally getting to celebrate a holiday with your dad and his new girlfriend.  Well said girlfriend has you run to the grocery store.  You literally fall at the grocery store and "break your ass" but with a hottie there to save you and flirt with....then said hottie gives you his number because he is from outta town you and plan on hooking up in a week after the holidays.  When you arrive back to girlfriends house the hottie shows up and is her SON!!!  *Que the ominous music*   Well the sparks fly because hottie Mason doesn't know his mom is dating and isn't thrilled to spend the holiday with her new boyfriend AND his daughter.  Well needless to say Mason and Amy have more sparks on the stairwell of the family home....Giggles.  However, Mason's mom says "heck no to messing around with Amy"  Mom says Amy is off limits...well ya know how we want what we cant have right????  Anyway, the two of them keep fooling around that holiday weekend but then *Que ominous music again* mom finds out and allllllll hells breaks loose!!  Well the "getting caught in the act" causes troubles for Mason's mom and Amy's dad so the two of them have to come up with a plan to smooth things over for their parents. 
I have to say the best part of this book is the ending when Amy and Mason get to spend some "quality time" plotting their parents return to dating.  I fell in love with these two and the heart strings were pulled because they are both willing to forgo this "Love feeling" to make sure their lonely, miserable parents get a 2nd chance at love.  The scene is set for Christmas and it is a great ending. 
I must admit, I would love love love to see more Mason and Amy in another novella perhaps??  I just enjoyed their chemistry.
I really enjoyed this cute story and can't thank Rachell enough for letting me review her book.  I still have another book of hers that I will be reviewing in the next week or so.  I hope you give this amazing new author a chance.  This story was written and paced great.  I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
Author's Posting:

Hello again! It’s me, Rachell Nichole.
I stopped by today to talk about my recent release, Spicy with a Side of Cranberry Sauce. What a title, huh? I adore it. But I can’t take all the credit for its creation, it was definitely a group effort. My publisher suggested the hook of Cranberry Sauce, and from there, my mom said, yeah, it needs something Spicy in the title. And Spicy with a Side of Cranberry Sauce was born! I can’t even take all the credit for the concept of this book either! Wow – that kind of makes me sound like a loser… I didn’t conceptualize it, I didn’t title it… what the hell did I do? Oh, yeah, I wrote it! And revised the hell out of it. And here I am promoting it… phew, okay, I feel better now.
At any rate, the credit for coming up with this concept (in conjunction with me) goes to my friend Tyler, who was another English teaching assistant with me in France. We were stuck on a train for a few hours and got to chatting. Tyler’s a screenwriter, so we got on the topic of writing and whacked out family trees and he says, “How screwed up would that be… falling in love with a girl and then finding out her father’s dating your mom?” And there ya have it – the concept was born. We plotted out a good portion of the book on that train, and for the most part, the overall structure stayed the same. Two people who fall for one another, locked in the same house as their parents over Thanksgiving, add in some sexual tension, and other disgruntled family members and you have one hell of combination. Then get them all together under one roof a month later for Christmas – Woohoo! This book was challenging and very fun to write. I came up with some interesting places and ways for Mason and Amy to get busy, spiced things up with some holiday madness, and wrapped it all up in a pretty little bow, just like a Christmas present!
I really loved writing this book and I hope you had at least half as much fun reading and reviewing it, Twinsie Talk. J
