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.

What is sweet and sassy and full of southern classy? Ain’t He Precious by Juliette Poe of course, just like it’s author!! Trixie and Ryland have history and lots of it. According to Ry, Trixie is “vibrant, headstrong, confident, elusive, and larger than life”. Trixie tells us that Ry is intelligent, witty, kind, and of course smoking hot ;) (ok those were my words but I’m sure she would agree). After not seeing each other for eleven years they seemed to be able to ease right back into being around each other.
But after eleven years of living what I felt was a magnificent existence, one magical moment with Ry has be questioning everything I thought I knew about myself.
It was refreshing reading about these two reconnecting and trying to figure out where they went wrong in the past. The setting of the story just amplified the sweetness. The small country town of Whynot seems like a great place to live and is filled with great people. I fell in love with Trixie’s family (wait until you meet Pap, you’ll love him!!) right alongside of her and Ry. Read along and discover what I’m talking about, you will easily envision everything in this story!
Juliette Poe is the sweet and swoony alter ego of New York Times Best Selling author, Sawyer Bennett.
A fun-loving southern girl, Juliette knows the allure of sweet tea, small towns, and long summer nights, that some of the best dates end sitting on the front porch swing, and that family is top priority. She brings love in the south to life in her debut series, Sex & Sweet Tea.
When Juliette isn’t delivering the sweetest kind of romance, she’s teaching her southern belle daughter the fine art of fishing, the importance of wearing Chucks, and the endless possibilities of a vivid imagination.
