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!
"My knees are pressed in tight against his hips, my fingertips digging down into his shoulders, and my heart skittering out of control. Not just because of the amazing physical sensations that are completely overwhelming me, but because I am connected to Ry Powers. My first love. My truest love.”
It’s no secret that I am huge Sawyer Bennett fan and so when I found out that she was writing as Juliette Poe, I knew regardless of whatever genre it is that I had to read it. And let me tell you ladies and gentlemen, this book is a good one. If you like your romance sweet, sentimental, and emotional then this book is definitely for you. Who wouldn’t want to read a feel good second chance love story?
After graduating from Harvard Law School, Trixie Mancinkus gave up her chance to be a big time city lawyer and instead decided to move back home to Whynot, North Carolina to open up her small town practice. She loves her family and Southern roots so it was something she couldn’t bear to part with. While her career was something that she was deeply proud of, a part of her was missing.
Ryland Powers was the only man that Trixie loved. He was her everything but they had to go on their separate ways since they both wanted different things. He wanted to be a big city lawyer in Boston and Trixie wanted to be home with her family. So fast forward to eleven years later, Trixie needs Ryland to help her with a client and so she invites him to Whynot, North Carolina.
The feelings that Trixie and Ryland had for each other are still there. Eleven years couldn’t erase their feelings and love for each other but with Ryland living in Boston, will Trixie be able to leave her family, her hometown, and her practice behind in order to be Ryland? And will Ryland will be able to leave his city life for small town farm life?
"But after eleven years of living what I felt was a magnificent existence, one magical moment with Ry has me questioning everything I thought I knew about myself.”
Ain’t He Precious? was indeed precious. This book was a sugary goodness of sweet tea. Once you had a taste of this book, you can’t help but want more or in this case drink more of Juliette Poe’s swoonworthy Southern love story. Ryland and Trixie’s second chance at love made my heart burst with so much love. I absolutely adored this book because not only did Juliette Poe allowed readers to feel the growth of her characters but she allowed readers to fall in love with a precious love, bond, and connection. So if you are looking for a story where the love is sticky as molasses and the characters are charming as hell then I suggest you better be clicking Ain’t He Precious?
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.
