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.

This book is the perfect weekend read. It was funny, sexy and was entertaining as hell. I did not want to put my kindle down.
Trixie and Ryland were college sweethearts. They had their lives planned after they graduated from Harvard. But Trixie pulled the rug out from under Ryland when she decided she wanted to be home in Whynot, North Carolina and not Boston. Fast forward eleven years and Ryland finds himself in North Caroline to help Trixie with a case. And when you haven’t seen the “one that got away” in that long, unresolved feelings are sure to pop up.
You know, from Pop’s prologue, that Trixie and Ryland were going to end up together. How could they not with all the unresolved feelings and chemistry flying around. But of course, Ryland needed to discover who the real Trixie was, the one she hid from him while they were in college, and understand that the big city was never going to be what makes her happy. Lucky for Ryland, he figured that out fairly quickly.
As second chance romances go, this was a bit predictable. But it was fun. The author made it hard to put my kindle down and leave the fun. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
About the Author
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.
