    Fun, sweet, fast read!!!!

    **Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Pretty as a Peach is the 4th book in the Sex and Sweet Tea series. This is Colt and Darby's story. This book can be read as a standalone, though I think that reading them in order makes it better. I like knowing who the characters are when they are discussed. I really loved Pretty as a Peach, and had a hard time putting it down. Darby left Illinois and everything she knew to get away from her controlling, abusive husband with her 7 year old daughter. Colt's never had a long term relationship, he wants what his parents have and isn't going to settle. When Darby gets to Whynot to take over as the Operations Manager of Farrington Farms, Colt isn't too happy when she applies for the same grant he is. He is angry, very angry and is bound and determined to dislike the woman trying to usurp the grant from him. I really liked Colt, Darby and her daughter Linnie. Colt had no issues with Darby having a child, and including her. I liked that in the story Colt didn't just want Darby with the child playing second fiddle to the relationship like I've read before. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Colt and Darby, and enjoyed how Colt didn't keep his head up his backside when there was turmoil and confronted it head on. If you are not familiar with this series, don't let the series name fool you. These books do not describe sexual situations and only allude to them, or mention that it occurred. I absolutely cannot wait for Larkin's story... the teaser at the end! Whew!!! Loved the teaser! Can't wait for the next book, to get updates on the other characters and get the new story!! Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!

    Fantastic sweet read

    I am so loving this series and this book is a fantastic addition. The little town of Whynot, NC has such an eclectic mix of quirky characters that you can't help but have a good time reading about them. In this story we meet Darby Culhane. She's a newbie to Whynot. She desperately needs a fresh start and Whynot seems like the perfect place. Working on a farm and growing peaches is exactly the sort of research she needs to finish her thesis. What she hadn't planned on was one amazingly hot but completely irate farmer that needs the same grant money she does. Colt Mancinkus is working to save his family's farm and he's counting on that grant money. Will these two find a way to work together and get what they both need and maybe, just maybe, a whole lot more? Nice sweet read that I think everyone will enjoy. I highly recommend it.

    Review: Sex & Sweet Tea 4: Pretty as a Peach

    Pretty as a Peach by Juliette Poe is the fourth book in her Sex & Sweet Tea series. A romantic, light-hearted series about the small town of Whynot, North Carolina and it's residents. This story is focused on Colt Mancinkus and his new competitor in town, Darby McCulhane. Colt is relying on an agriculture grant to expand his family's farm business and the only solid competitor is a woman who doesn't even technically need the grant other than for the process of applying for her thesis. He is annoyed and determined to not like her on sight. That flies out the window the second he finally lays eyes on his "arch-nemesis". Now he finds himself enamored instead. Darby is coming to Whynot for a fresh start. Divorcing her cheating husband and working on her PHD in agronomy, she settles in at her ex brother-in-laws farm with her seven year old daughter and begins work on her peach orchard. She knows that the other person in the running for the agriculture grant is here in Whynot but never expects to feel the attraction for him when she first meets him. I absolutely adored reading the story, watching these two characters slowly embrace a friendship and romance, getting more glimpses of characters we have met before in previous books in the series, and even a glimpse at what is, hopefully, to come still. Told in dual POV, the emphasis is heavy on the romance and interaction and has very little actual steamy scenes but the story is just as fulfilling without it, more realistic in fact. Enjoy!

    Pretty As a Peach

    I am loving this series and with each book we get to know more of this eclectic family and this time we get to know Cole better. He has always known he was going to be a farmer and take over the family farm and even though it has been failing for years he has a plan to bring it back. Standing in his way is the newcomer to town, Darby. She has applied for the same grant Cole did and this causes Cole to form an immediate dislike for Darby...that is until he actually meets her. To say there all the bells and whistles go off, well, the chemistry is undeniable and what happens is Cole finds out he cannot hold onto that spite. Watching these two try to take things slow just made my heart sing but the best part was watching Cole interact with Linnie. In true Whynot fashion, the gossip machine works overtime and the Mancinkus family are all together for Sunday family dinner. This one could be read as a standalone but really WHY do that to yourself when this series is so good! I highly recommend this one and all of the other 3 too. **Received this ARC for review**

    Love this series

    5 Star Review of Pretty As A Peach by Juliette Poe (Sex & Sweet Tea #4) This was a fun, quick read full of romance, laughter and love of family. This is Colt Mancinkus and Darby Culhane’s story and I loved it from start to finish. Ms. Poe describes Whynot in such great detail that I would love to visit. I love the idea of a small town where everyone knows you, although I am sure not everyone would appreciate that. Colt is prepared to do whatever it takes to keep his family’s legacy, Mainer Farms safe and intact whilst all Darby is looking for is a fresh start. What could be more simple that that? When Darby applies for a rural county grant she finds herself in conflict with the all to appealing Colt. After confronting Darby and explaining the importance of him being rewarded the grant, Darby decides to withdraw. However Colt is a Mancinkus and he feel that he should help Darby, particularly after meeting her daughter Linnie. When circumstances bring Colt and Darby together, sparks will fly and temptation will be strong. They soon form a strong friendship, but will that be all it is? Linnie wants her family back together but Darby is determined that her ex remain just that and with the help and support of the Mancinkus family, she and Linnie will find the happiness that they so richly deserve. Colt’s grandfather Pap is a great secondary character and I hope he actually gets his own story. In fact, all the characters made me smile and I cannot wait until we visit Whynot, North Carolina again as I am anxious to see who will be next in the series.
