Welcome to Whynot, North Carolina, population 3,872. It has one stoplight, one bar, and the one-and-only Trixie Mancinkus.
Eleven years ago, Trixie graduated Harvard Law, turned down a job offer from one of the most prestigious law firms in Boston, and headed home to Whynot to open her own firm. Not only did she leave behind the big city, but she also left her boyfriend of three years. And just so we’re clear… that would be me.
So what am I doing in Whynot at this very moment? It seems Trixie needs help with a legal case and for some insane reason, she called on me for assistance. I’ve been in town for five minutes, and I’m every bit as out of place as I feel. Trixie is all sweet, southern curves to my tailored suits and high-priced haircuts. It’s a culture clash of north versus south and about the only thing we have in common is our physical attraction to each other.
But I have a new motto since coming to Whynot: When life hands you lemons, all you need is a little sex and sweet tea to make things better.
Ain’t He Precious was such a southern-sweet romance. This might be Juliette Poe’s debut novel, but she isn’t the new to the romance scene. No sir. Poe is actually best-selling romance author, Sawyer Bennet’s alter ego. So, this story was everything I wanted it to be.
It was sweet, a bit sassy, and speedy. Main characters Trixie and Ryan were wonderfully written. They were dynamic but neither of them overly complex. So this story was easy and it wasn’t mind-melting. As in, it didn’t take a lot of focus and thinking. It was exactly what I needed. I also want to mention that while this book follows the two main character’s point of view, we also get a beginning, middle, and end chapter for Paps, Trixie’s grandfather. He is, let’s say, the narrator. I loved him!
I can’t wait for more from Poe and the Sex and Sweet Tea series.
