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.

Ryland Powers and Trixie Mancinkus had spent an inseparable 3 years, whilst at Harvard Law School. With big plans for the future together, they were both offered positions at a reputable Law firm in Boston. Their life was fully on course, until it wasn’t.
Eleven years later, Trixie is the main port of call for anything legal in the town of Whynot, North Carolina - population 3,872. Back in the bosom of her family, and far away from Boston…and Ry.
Ry receives a request for help from Trixie, which takes him from his big city Law Firm in Boston. He’s intrigued to know what she would require his assistance with, and equally hungry to learn what happened to their relationships sudden demise all those years ago.
This is a sweet, second chance romance from the alter ego of Sawyer Bennett. I was thoroughly entertained by the engaging Trixie and Ry, and gained a good grounding of the supporting network for the future shenanigans.
A great start to a new series, and a new author *thumbs up*

Oh He's Precious Alright
Oh my. An honest to goodness happy, feel good book that left me all warm and fuzzy. A second chance romance that follows Trixie and Ryland, both Harvard Law School graduates who were offered jobs at a prestigious Boston Law firm. Yet after 3 years as a couple Trixie decides to up and move back to her hometown of Whynot, North Carolina, shocking and surprising Ryland in the process. 11 years later Trixie reaches out to Ryland for assistance in one of her cases, and Ryland hops on a plane to meet with the woman he loved 11 years earlier, neither of them expecting anything but closure on their relationship. With some hilarious characters, a wonderfully written story told in dual POV, with some passionate scenes and intense chemistry, this book has firmly placed itself as one of my top picks for this year. So many laugh out loud moments. I am so looking forward to more from Juliette.
