REVIEW – AIN’T HE PRECIOUS (Sex and Sweet Tea, #1) – by Juliette Poe


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.

Ry has always been my biggest regret, but it’s not a fixable one. I have my life here, he has his back in Boston, and those lives are firmly entrenched.

AIN’T HE PRECIOUS is a slow building sweet and light-hearted tale of a once in a lifetime love and second chances. Get ready to be charmed by the quirky inhabitants of the small town of WhyNot, North Carolina. This book is definitely a change from the steamy stories that Sawyer Bennett normally writes but I found it to be quite enjoyable. It would be a perfect book to sit out on your porch with on a warm Spring day with a pitcher of Sweet Tea by your side!

Trixie Mancinkus and Ry Powers met and fell madly in love during their three years at Harvard Law School. They had both applied and were hired as lawyers for a prestigious law firm in Boston, but at the last minute, Trixie decides to move back home to Whynot, North Carolina. Neither she nor Ry were willing to compromise or to find a way to make things work between them, so they ended up going their separate ways. Now, eleven years later, Trixie has reached out to Ry and asked him to come down to Whynot to help her with a high profile lawsuit, but maybe she also has an ulterior motive for connecting back up with Ry. She has never been able to move on from the relationship she once had with Ry.

Ry doesn’t hesitate at the chance to help out Trixie. He recently broke up with his girlfriend of two years and if he were to be completely honest, no other woman has ever come close to capturing his heart as Trixie had so long ago. The moment these two are in each other’s presence again, the sparks are fiercely ignited between them. So now that they realize that the love they shared is still as strong as ever, how will their relationship be able to survive this time when their lives are still in two different States? Have they matured enough to see what truly matters in life or will they continue to be stubborn and put their own selfish needs first before their relationship?
