Things in Whynot, NC have gone to the dogs, and that’s just the way the town’s only veterinarian, Laken Mancinkus, likes it. No matter if she’s up when the rooster crows, or working until the cows come home, Laken never leaves an animal in need. So when a gorgeous Yankee comes begging for help herding some wily goats, Laken is up to the task.
Jake McDaniel is looking for a tax break, and what better way than to take up…farming? This ex-football player turned businessman turned unwitting goat farmer is up to his knees in goat drama. Runaway goats, dehydrated goats, and a baby goat that wants no one other than him, Jake needs more help than he cares to admit. Good thing the sexy veterinarian is right there to coach him on how to be a farmer. The only problem is, Laken’s not looking for anything more than a good time, while Jake is looking for his forever girl.
Will the baby goat, and Laken, be enough to get Jake to stay? Or will he take his tax break and hoof it back to Chicago? One thing is for certain…what happens on the farm doesn’t always stay on the farm.

Pap is the man who sets the story up for us – narrator if you will. Later on there’s a narrator that may be something of a surprise. Pap also shows what a creative mind our author has. This should become evident by the end of the first chapter.
Laken Mancinkus has a take that attitude that has me chuckling – especially when she comes in contact with Mr. Fancy Pants. I thoroughly enjoyed laughing with and at Ms. Poe’s characters. Jake McDaniel is going to get you to laugh a lot – so I’m giving you plenty of warning. He may seem like a big burly man but put Laken in his path and watch out.
It’s not long into the book that I wish that Whynot was a real place. There’s just something about a small town that brings back some great memories. I want to go down to North Carolina, locate the town, and get to know these characters personally. Ms. Poe knows what will touch her reader’s hearts. If you’re a fan of Animal Planet you’ll understand – you can’t go wrong when you add animals into a story. For the most part this is a feel good sexy story with some humor put in for good measure. And if you want more of this town and the Mancinkus family book four will be out in a few months.
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.
