STUBBORN AS A MULE
The Sex and Sweet Tea Series
by Juliette Poe
Release Day – July 20
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.

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.
Oh man, I don’t think I could love this little sweet town of Whynot more than I do after Stubborn as a Mule. I mean, just being able to see everyone and catch up is perfect but learning more of Lowe and Melinda couldn’t be any sweeter (Yes! Irony)! I love me some enemies to lover’s books! And Lowe is one mad hatter! I get it, being mad that some New Yorker comes waltzing in and takes over his childhood home… the home that has been in his family since it was built. I mean, I can’t get over his antics. Wow, he’s quite the guy isn’t he!!
I just adore every single thing about this book and this series so far right down to the cover on the front! The people in this book make you want to move to Whynot and say you’re a long lost relative… they are just adorable! I’m not sure if I need some of Pap’s advice or if I want to sit out in a boat with Lowe watching the lanterns float in the sky. Southern men do it right!
Y’all this book is a PERFECT summer, beachy read! It’s light and funny, sexy and hot, but totally sweet and a little more angsty than I expected. Juliette Poe aka Sawyer Bennett is at the top of her game! Her writing is completely flawless!
I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
