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 and Entertaining Read! ❤️
Ain't He Precious? was such a fun, entertaining, and lighthearted read! It's on the shorter side, but this second chance romance was just what I was looking for after reading some heavier books.
Trixie and Ryland have been apart for eleven years, after dating for 3 years through law school. They had made plans to spend the rest of their lives together, when suddenly those plans changed, leaving Ryland in Boston, Massachusetts and Trixie in Whynot, North Carolina. They've moved on with their lives, but when a legal case brings the two of them together again in Whynot, it's clear that their chemistry is just as scorching and powerful as it was all those years ago. I loved how these two reconnected and Ry got some good old southern hospitality from the town and Trixie's family. The story is told from both character's points of view, and I especially enjoyed Ry's fish out of water monologue. Both Ry and Trixie are such strong, intelligent, and caring people, and the low angst of this romance was perfect. The secondary characters in the story were just as fun, especially Pap. I love that he's a straight shooter and I imagine it would be very fun to shoot the breeze with him.
I enjoyed this quick and amusing romance and can't wait for more from Juliette Poe! What a wonderful start to the series!

Love all of Sawyer Bennett's books and was super excited to read a new novel penned by her alter ego- Juliette Poe!
I LOVED this book! The characters were endearing and the relationship between Ry and Trixie was believable and charming! I couldn't put it down!
Ryland and Trixie reunite after ending their college relationship 11 years prior. Their attraction hasn't waned and their banter was fun. What I loved most about this story is that it centered on appreciation of what matters most in life and was an incredibly sweet romantic story. Trixie is a confident woman and Ry is a true gentleman, two things that were a nice change from the normal genre I read.
Loved Pap...he's the Grandpa everyone wants to have! The other supporting characters were developed enough to enjoy their contributions to Ry & Trixie's story. I am anxious to learn more about the siblings and to follow their adventures in finding love in upcoming books in the series!
If you are looking for a book about second changes or about a true love that was never lost, then this is the book for you. I promise you will not be disappointed!!

Adored this!! It's sweet yet sexy, funny, sassy, and heartwarming. A great small town romance that put a smile on my face. It's a nice easy quick read that is perfect for a relaxing afternoon.
Whynot, NC is a small town and the place Trixie Mancinkus decided to return to after law school. It was a hard decision considering she left behind the man who was most likely the love of her life, Ryland Powers. Turns out though it was the right decision for her. Now she's called on Ryland to help with a very important case she's handling and like the great man he is he comes right away. It might have been 11 years since they've seen each other but the love is still there. Their problem is still the same though. He's big city and she's small town. How could rekindling what they had turn out well for either of them???
You definitely want to grab a copy of this one! I highly recommend it.
