Blog Tour & Review: Stubborn as a Mule

Down in Whynot, NC, there are three things that hold true: 1) life moves just a little bit slower, 2) family means everything, and 3) you don’t mess with history.

When his family decides to sell a home that’s been part of their history for over a century, Lowe Mancinkus is madder than a hornet. To add insult to injury, the woman who purchased it is some fancy pants, city girl looking to fix it up and sell it off. Doesn’t matter that she’s sexy as hell or that just being near her gets his blood racing like never before. That home belongs to his family, or at least it did until she came to town.

Well that just won’t do, now will it?

From the moment that she laid eyes on the historical home in rural North Carolina, Melinda Rothschild knew Mainer House was something special. The perfect escape from life in New York City, Melinda signed the papers and set to work restoring the house to its natural beauty. That is until an angry Lowe showed up on her doorstep one day. With a scowl on his handsome, chiseled face. And a shotgun in his strong, muscular arms.

Is it getting hot in here?

Melinda’s about to get a lesson on life in the south, but Lowe is about to learn a lesson of his own – this city girl doesn’t back down from a fight.

This is the second book in the Sex and Sweet Tea series.  The books follow the Mancinkus family. It can be read as a stand alone but we do have some story and characters from the first book pop up in this one.

This is a wonderful enemies to lovers book.  Lowe and Melinda HATE each other from the start.  Lowe is ticked his family sold their legacy home.  Melinda and the historic home fall under his cross hairs as he tries for vengeance.

Things seem pretty grim for our couple.  But add in a meddling judge, lots of town gossips, a well meaning best friend, and Lowe's continued need to make sure this home keeps it's original charm.  Yeah.  We get a sweet, southern, small town romance.  Just a joy to read this one.  A nice slow build on the romance.  Mely and Lowe were just meant to be and it's the house that brings them together.

Great series. Light on the steam but heavy on character development and love.  Of course Juliette Poe aka Sawyer Bennett doesn't write bad books.  Love them all! More coming soon with this family.  I can't wait!

*Complimentary copy provided for an honest review.

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.
