Publisher's summary

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.

Fun series start

Ain’t He Precious is a sweet second chance romance with heat, emotion and a definite ‘swoon factor’!

“I laugh. The people in this town are nuttier than squirrel sh*!.”

One of the things I love a small town romance for is the quirky characters that inhabit these towns. This author populates Whynot, North Carolina with some people who I know I’m going to want to read more about!

I loved this story and can’t wait to read more of this series!
-5 Stars!-

short and sweet

Ain't He Precious? was such a sweet and cute second chance romance. The 2 main characters Trixie and Ryland (Ry) get the second chance that neither realised just how much they both wanted and needed. The timing for their HEA wasn't right the first time around, but it just might be the second.

Lots of banter and chemistry between these 2. Trixie's family are both fun and a little nutty at times. Spending time with them, Ry finally starts to understand why Trixie made the decisions she did.

This was a very quick listen, with 3 narrators. I enjoyed the performances of the narrators for both Trixie and Ry. Pa Mancinkus has a few chapters, and although I usually really enjoy the performances of the narrator that voiced this character, this time I felt that he just didn't suit the character of Pa (Trixie's 81 year old grandfather) at all. His voice didn't match to the character.

Wonderful narration for a wonderful story

Wow .... what can I say about Sawyer Bennett's alter ego Juliette Poe apart from what a fantastic fun short read , this novella hooked me from page one, the characters intrigued me and the story drew me in.
Samantha Summers, Alexander Cendese and Lance Greenfield did an amazing job bringing these quirky characters and their story to life. They were spot on with the emotion and the hun but more importantly they had me feeling like I was part of the group enjoying some moonshine sweet tea.
11 years ago Trixie graduated from Harvard, turned down a job at a top Boston Law Firm and hightailed it back to Whynot to open her own law practice leaving her boyfriend Ryland behind so why is he in Whynot now,well Trixie needs help with a case and to be honest he stills wonders why she left him the way she did.
This author has a way of making you connect on so many different levels with her characters and places , be it the moonshine drinking pistol welding Pa or the shotgun welding brothers, I'm sure this book will bring a smile to your face.

"When life hands you lemon, all you need is a little sex and sweet tea to make things better "

Looking forward to more sex and sweetness from Juliette Poe in future books and I hope they turn into full size novels.

A fun and easy listen

3.5 Stars

This was a fun and easy read/listen that brings us a small dose of small town Southern life with all of it's charm and zaniness.

It is the story of two lawyers who had a relationship all three years during law school in Boston, but when it came time to actually make those hard decisions on the "after" of real life, they ended up parting ways. This was 11 years before the start of this book.

The setting takes place mostly in the small town of Why Not, South Carolina and is just...well....the word that comes to mind is "quaint".

It isn't deep and heavy literature, but it is a fun read/listen that will lave you with a smile on your face.

A bit of fluff

is good now and then. This was predictable but well done and well narrated. Fun and no brain strain.

Fun read overall!

Overall opinion: 3.75

After 11 years, both are still in love with each other. The court cases are almost an afterthought and he is able to spend lots of time with her, even though he is a partner with a high power law firm. Believability needs to be suspended but it is a fun read overall.

Great!

I love that I found this series! They are great books! The different narrators for different characters is wonderful. I wasn't sure what to expect with the overall title for the series "Sex and Sweet Tea", but it isn't dirty or graphic. Very nice love story!
