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.
Ain’t He Precious
A short, cute, sweet story. If you are looking for hot and steamy this is not it. However it is refreshing to read a book that’s not too intense or dark. Really an uplifting story of rekindled lost love.
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!
