Trixie Mancinkus is a small-town lawyer with a difficult case in front of her. She reaches out to a successful big town lawyer and former lover, Ryland Powers, for help. Fifteen years ago, Trixie and Ryland had a plan to move to Boston and be successful lawyers in one of the top law firms in Boston. Unfortunately, Trixie made the decision to go home with her family in Whynot, North Carolina and Ryland went to Boston squashing their plans and a future together.
I love the way this story is executed. It is told in the alternating points of view of Trixie and Ryland with a few chapters told from Pap Mancinkus’ (Trixie’s grandfather’s) point of view. It is an interesting technique that fills in blanks from a person who knows and loves Trixie.
Juliette Poe (Sawyer Bennett) does a fantastic job of weaving the small-town life into the story in a way that it almost becomes a character of sorts itself. Like all small towns, it has some quirky characters, and some of them are in Trixie’s family. She also does an excellent job of bringing the main characters back together. There are a lot of problems to resolve from their breakup years ago. Regardless, I love how open Trixie is with her sexuality and how embarrassed Ryland is at times. It is all accomplished by keeping the reader turning the page and cheering for the main characters to figure it all out.
Surprisingly I haven’t read any books by Sawyer Bennett, so I didn’t have any expectations nor do I understand why she released Ain’t He Precious under another pseudonym. What I do know is I love second chance stories. Juliette did a beautiful job of creating a heartwarming story in a Mayberryesque setting. In the end, I realized that sometimes the path to a happily-ever-after isn’t always straight forward but worth the wait. I love series where each individual book is a standalone novel with the promise of learning more about the cast of characters in the future. The secondary characters hold a lot of promise—especially Trixie’s siblings. I can’t wait for the next book. I mentioned earlier that I haven’t read any books by Sawyer Bennett before, but I did purchase several when I finished Ain’t He Precious. Well done!
I throughly enjoyed this book. I waited until Barking Up the Wrong Tree came out to read the series. But in my mind there are hints to more than just 3 books. That's ok. Just more sweet tea and fried chicken to enjoy. Fishing and sitting on the porch is sometimes all you need to unwind. Crickets in the background. Stars your only light...done that many times.
I really like the relationship between Trixie and Ryland. I'm so glad there was no drama. Just a really great, forward read. If you are looking for a great pick me up this then this is one click worthy.
Juliette Poe is the alter ego of Sawyer Bennett, an author with several other successful romance series including Cold Fury Hockey. The Sex and Sweet Tea series demonstrates how her craft has improved, taking time to develop secondary characters to add depth and color to the main storyline.
Ryland Powers and Trixie Mancinkus met in law school and dated/lived together until they graduated. Upon graduating they discovered they wanted different things, Tricia wanted to go back to her small home town and open her own law firm and Ryland wanted a job with a large law firm in Boston. Flash forward 11 years, Trixie needs Ryland' s help on a case. Can they make it work this time?
With that being said, I really enjoy the storyline and the plot for these two. Trixie and Ryland had me rolling sometimes and hot and heavy other times. The author dance the line of going into too much detail about the sex scene to keeping it clean. I love the southern flare and yes as a southern we do most of the things described in this book.
It's an easy book to read at the beach, by the pool or even on the front porch drinking some sweet tea with a splash of peach moonshine in it!
