    4. Get it now: US * UKJuliette Poe, pen name for Sawyer Bennett, created the most swoon worthy characters for this book. Laken was a sweet and sassy woman that was not afraid to share her opinion, and Jake was a new-to-the-South confused man that could be just as sweet mixed with some sexy.

    8. This series gets better and better and that's saying something since I really enjoyed the first two books. I knew we would be in for a treat after the way Jake and Laken met at the end of Stubborn as a Mule but we got so much more than I had expected. Laken, Jake, Herman, and Miss Goatikins had me laughing so much there were times that tears were in my eyes from laughing so hard, now don't get me wrong while there were many laughs to be had I also found myself tearing up at a certain point of th [...]

    10. Sawyer Bennett writing as Juliette Poe has become one of my absolute FAVORITE THINGS! The Sex and Sweet Tea Series just keeps getting better and better, and along with their magnificent covers, this town and the characters that reside in it are VERY MUCH NEEDED in my life right now. I don’t know if I’ve ever been charmed so quickly or so utterly addicted to a series and the world in which it lives. Whynot, North Carolina might be a fictional world, but it’s a world I would very much like t [...]

    15. Squeeze! Barking Up the Wrong Tree is yet another sweet, lighthearted, cute romance from Juliette Poe. I am really falling in love with this series. Maybe it is the small town feels – the close-knit people, the beautiful scenery, the animals and the farm life and all Whynot has to offer. This one is about one of the twins Laken who is a town veterinarian. Laken hasn’t always been a small-town girl. She had her eyes on big city living once - the big practice, the clothes, the busy lifestyle. [...]

    16. ***4 ‘MG & Herman’ Stars***This may be my favorite of the series (so far anyways since there are two more Mancinkus siblings to go) I loved Laken and Jake and their journey was all kinds of cute, funny, sweet sexyness and filled with heart. Jake and Laken were a lot of fun to get to know. Laken is all kinds of focused and yet gentle. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and take charge when the situation calls for it. She’s a little snarky, a little sassy but filled with a lot of heart [...]

    18. 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 ne [...]

    19. another book based in Whynot n.c by Juliette poe, what a great read.I loved laken and Jake so much, they just make the story come aliveis is definitely a series you must read.I volunteered to read a copy of this book

    20. I know Sawyer Bennett mostly for her sexy stories, the Wicked books. As Juliette Poe however, she writes different stories. Still with sexy times and lots of chemistry, but far less naughty and no sex club in sight. Barking Up The Wrong Tree tells the story of Laken and Jake, small-town-girl and city-boy. I love their story, and I want my own MG (pretty sure hubby says no).“You’re a city boy. I’m a country girl. You live in Chicago, and I live in a town you’ll forget by tomorrow.”After [...]

    21. Juliette Poe, the alter ego of Sawyer Bennett, gives the most adorable romance full of swoon and sass, Barking Up the Wrong Tree just keeps the phenomena alive.Taking centre stage on this occasion is the extrovert twin, Laken. While Laken portrays an extrovert exterior, there is an underlying sense of loneliness about her. Especially when you take into consideration her living arrangements. Laken is a bit of an enigma, snippets of her past are slowly peppered through the narrative bringing under [...]

    22. 4.5 baby goat loving stars. Nothing better than a guy and his goat. Yes you heard it right goat. That was the cutest thing ever imprinting on the big man. How does one start something with a small town vet why a goat emergency of course. Yes I keep mentioning the little kid because it's focal point of everything. There's a dog too and I can't deny I love animals in stories. City boy and small town girl, unlikely pair and they didn't start out on the right foot but there was some definite chemist [...]

    23. Barking up the Wrong Tree is third book in the Sex and Sweet Tea series. Each book can be read as standalone but they are all connected by five siblings. The Mancinkus'. Laken is one of the twins and it's her turn to found out what this whole love thing is all about. She wasn't looking for it though. She didn't even want it. One city boy. One country girl. One heated connection. The problem? Distance. Oh. And the fact that one doesn't want more than a casual fling. That could be a problem especi [...]

    24. ** Spoiler Free Review** Those Mansinkus kids make me laugh. And the laughs get better with each book in the series. This book is about Laken, she's the Vet in Whynot. Her practice is based mostly on farm animals. But she does tend to some of the dogs and cats in town.So she's pissed when Jake McDaniels walks into Chestys looking for a Veterinarian and seems to be looking for a man. She may be pissed, but she doesn't miss how hot he is. He's exactly the type that turns her on. She even goes as f [...]

    25. 5 Star Review of Barking Up The Wrong Tree by Juliette Poe (Sex & Sweet Tea #3)This was a fun, quick read full of romance, laughter and love of family. This is Laken Mancinkus and Jake McDaniel's story and I loved it from start to finish.I have to say that this one of the funniest series I have read this year, Ms. Poe certainly has a handle on the romantic comedy genre. She describes Whynot in such great detail that I would love to visit. I love the idea of a small town where everyone knows [...]

    26. Any book with kids or animals---done right---just can't be a bad story in my world. You know it's going to be even better when we get chapters in the animals POV! Juliette Poe brings us a light romantic romp back in the town of Whynot, NC. Laken is the town veterinarian and ends up rescuing and escaped herd of goats for the city boy who just bought a local farm. What follows is flirting and the potential for some thing with no strings attached. But then baby goats happen and Jake and Laken spend [...]

    27. The Sex and Sweet Tea series is all kinds of funny and entertaining. Laken, the town veterinarian meets her match with city-boy Jake McDaniel. Goats bring them together (yes, you read right - I said goats), and that makes for one entertaining story. Ever heard of goat yoga? Neither have I until I read this. Ever heard of a baby goat bonding with a human and needed to be nursed by said human? You'll find that in this book. Laken and Jake have a number of obstacles to overcome. What started out as [...]

    28. 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.

    29. Omg where do I start, I love the town of Whynot and its inhabitants and book 3 in the Sex and Sweet Tea series did not disappoint in fact I would go as far as for me it's the best book yet in this brilliant series. This is Laken Mancinkus's story who is the local vet in Whynot, she is never going to settle down, she has been burnt before and relationships are not on the cards for her, sharing her life with her large puppy Herman is perfect or so she thought, then Jake arrived in town. Jake is a [...]

    30. I can't believe how many times I laughed while reading this book!!! This whole series is adorably sweet and funny, but this has to be the best one yet!!! Laken is fiercely independent, slightly broken, and snarky as all get out!!! I freaking loved her!!! And, how can one man be so perfect!!! Jake was incredible!!! I can't say too much without giving things away and ruining the story for others, but I'll say this, never has a male character pushed so many of the right buttons. This guy sigh!!!Jul [...]
