    LOVED!

    I am loving this series and it just seems to get better and better. Laken and Jake's story just made my heart sing. There are so many things about this book I loved I don't really know where to start. First there is Jake. So swoon worthy and sexy. Then there is Herman and part of the story from his POV. Add in Miss Goatikins and I was a goner. This book is a nice easy read that's just a whole lot of fun. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    fun, sweet book that you won't want to put down!

    ** Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Barking Up the Wrong Tree is book #3 in the Sex and Sweet Tea series-- this is Laken's book. This book can be read as a standalone but for maximum benefit I would read in order so you know who the other characters are. Though the author does let you know the relation of each if you don't read the others. This is a fun series, and I really enjoyed this book. It's a fun, fast read. If you are looking for a book with a lot of hot and steamy scenes, this book is not for you. The sex in these books, to include this book is alluded to only. Though it is alluded to more in this book then the first two. Laken Mancinkus has been hurt in the past, and now she only has room for hook ups. When she meets Jake McDaniels, he turns her nice compartmentalized world upside down. Jake is a city boy comes to WhyNot supposedly looking for a tax write off for his company and knows nothing about farming. So when he goes to visit his place, he finds his foreman has quit and his goats are running amok and he has no idea how to get them back on his property. He heads to Chesty's her pap's bar to locate the vet and things get a little heated between them. Laken does help Jake but only because she isn't going to allow harm to the animals but she is going to make him pay, and the cost isn't going to be monetary. As I mentioned earlier, I really enjoyed this book, the characters feel fun, and real to me and I enjoyed the chemistry between them. I lived in NC for 7 years and when the author talks about Raleigh and Pinehurst areas I was frequently in it definitely caused me some nostalgia... The only complaint I have is I wish the author gave you a little more story at the ending, an epilogue or something. I know the characters will come up in the upcoming books, but it really left me wanting more and not ready to end the story. But it doesn't detract from the story in any way. Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!! 2 likes

    Love this series

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book I LOVE Sawyer Bennett books and so when I heard she had a new name and a new series I ran to read it. And I have beyond LOVED this series. I loved books 1 and 2 and I could not wait to get my hands on this book. I enjoyed this book, the writing was as terrific as her other books and the characters were definitely ones I fell hard for but this was the first time that I can think of where she included an ex lover/wife in the actual story. And this took away from the story for me. I kinda cringed at those scenes. Now had it been an ex where they were together 1 year and were like oops I would have been more understanding but it was 10 years. She was his teacher in college and they were married 10 years happily, but they grew apart and they have only been divorced 1 year. Yes she is dating another guy and yes neither are in love with the other but they still have great affection for the other. And she is many scenes. And yes one night her and her sister share a house with Jake. And this took away from my love of Jake. The rest of the book was terrific. Laken and Jake meet when he needs help with his goats. I LOVED that aspect of the story. I have never given goats much thought but they just seemed like a lot of fun in this story. Jake and Laken start out with a one night stand butwhen the goats need Jake he comes rushing back to town and he and Laken start a just sex relationship. I love that Jake is a fighter and Laken is one too. We see alot of Paps and Trixie in this story and I really loved that story. This was a great story and I really enjoyed my visit to WhyNot.

    LOVED this book!

    Wow...each book in this series just keeps getting better and better! This book is about Laken Mancinkus and Jake McDaniel. Laken is the vet in Whynot, NC and I just adored her. She gives it just as good as she gets it! Having been burned by an ex in her past, Laken is leary of wealthy, alpha men. Of course Jake, a wealthy, alpha, ex-football play comes crashing into her world in such a fun way. The first meeting between these two was priceless. When Laken finally decides to give Jake some pity, that is when the fun begins! Jake has bought a farm with goats on it and he doesn't know the first thing about farming, but he does have a good heart and is at least trying. When Laken realizes that the goats are underfed and possible sick, she can't help but get involved. Of course spending all this time with Jake isn't so bad...he is really nice to look at. Things progress quickly to a friends with benefits relationship. Even quicker, Jake starts having stronger feeling for Laken, but because of things from her past, she just won't commit to anything more than just friends with benefits. When Jake finally pushes Laken a little too far, things explode. It takes a while for these two to find their happy ever after, but it was really worth it. I just adored Miss Goatikins and they way Jake was with her, you can't help but fall for him! All of Laken's family members make appearances, especially Pap. He has a bigger story line in this one. Wish I had a grandpa like him! Overall this was a wonderful book and I highly recommend it!

    More Adorable Southern Charm.

    There is something so refreshing about this series, and I don't mean the covers. Although I just adore them, a lovely change to all the others around. This book and series have a delightful home town feel about them, very family orientated and they just make me feel so happy when reading them. Juliette Poe did an amazing job once again with Barking Up the Wrong Tree - Laken's story. Laken is a little sassy, and a lot of a head strong kinda gal. She knows what she wants, and definitely what she needs. She has a lot of compassion, mainly towards the animal variety, but when she loves, she loves hard, and I respect that immensely. Jake is completely what Laken needs. He is loyal and smart and knows when he is on a good thing. He too has a soft heart and it was so endearing when he was looking after MG. I wish I was her, sitting on his lap! These books are all standalones, they are about five siblings and their partners, but I am loving each and every book that comes out. They are an easy book to fall into and you come away feeling revitalised and upbeat. This one is mainly told in dual POV but a chapter or so are thrown in from Pap and Herman, quite funny. I know that Colt is up next in the series, and I can't wait. Highly recommend each and every book. * I received a copy for an honest review.
