Blog Tour: Stubborn as a Mule 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.

Review by Jen Skewes

I just adore this series.  After reading the first book I couldn't wait for the next one.  I wanted Lowe's story and Ms. Bennett did not disappoint.  It's a fun, sweet and light read.  A little drama but nothing over the top.  It's just one of those books that makes you smile.  

Ever since his family sold the Mainer house, Lowe is determined to make the new owner's life a little complicated with his antics.  He knows how to piss her off and he does so with no regrets. That house meant something to him and he does not want someone coming in and renovating the entire house, taking away the charm and history it has. But this times he's gone too far and has been ordered by the judge to work on the house and help the new owner as his sentence.  It's either that or jail.  When he was handed his sentence I thought to myself "Oh this will be fun."

Mely has purchased this house for reasons that no one knows.  It means something to her and she is not about to let Lowe ruin it for her.  That man pushes her buttons like no man has.  She can't deny how gorgeous he is but his personality does not match his looks.  Until she really gets to know him and realizes maybe he isn't the jerk she thought him to be

There is something there between Lowe and Mely. There's this undeniable connection.  But will either one of them be able to admit what is really going on between them?

I really enjoyed this book.  The laughs, the banter back and forth, the pranks and even the little bit of drama.  I loved it all, especially Lowe.  He has this way about him. He's cute and sexy with a heart of gold.  I loved his relationship with his family and how he cares and took care of those around him. 

I loved Mely.  She was so different than I thought she would be.  She sweet and
Fun and I loved everything about her.  And I especially loved her friendship with her and her BFF Morri.  He was such a fantastic addition to this cast of characters.  

If you are looking for the perfect beach or lazy day read then this one is for you.  I was fun and witty and sweet.   I cannot wait for the next one.

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.
