Blog Tour and Book Review: Stubborn as A Mule (The Sex and Sweet Tea Series #2) by Juliette Poe


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.

My thoughts: 

It was so good going back to Whynot! Stubborn as a Mule is just what I expected after Ain't He Precious - sexy, fun, and full of southern charm. I already knew that sparks were going to fly between Mely and Lowe from their appearance in Stubborn as a Mule. We learned that Lowe was a hotheaded, sentimental to a fault, good ol' boy and Mely was a prissy, wealthy, Yankee - but we learn that they're so much more here. The chemistry between them is incredible, the banter is phenomenal, and reading the book just gave me the warm and fuzzies. Lowe was so incredibly sexy, yet sweet too once he let himself fall for Mely. And she was cute and feisty. I love the back and forth that comes with Enemies to Lovers romances and this little quickie is rife with that deliciousness. I give Stubborn as a Mule 4.5 out of 5 wine glasses and can't wait for the next installment in the Sex and Sweet Tea series. 



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.
