About this ebook

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Hollywood hath no fury like a woman scorned. In this fun, flirty second-chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, an aspiring starlet reconnects with her first love.

“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore.”—Violet Duke

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancé at a red-carpet premiere. But when Eden returns to her hometown to put the scandal behind her, she can barely find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Turns out the locals are worse than the paparazzi, and they all think she’s turned into a spoiled brat. But in a strange twist of fate, the one person who seems to understand what Eden’s going through is Cooper Mayfield . . . the boy she left behind.

Small-town charm is no match for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. At least that’s what Coop’s been telling himself all these years. As Eden’s old flame—and the landscaper for her family’s historic home—Coop feels some responsibility for getting her out of her funk. But as soon as he sees that million-dollar smile, he’s a goner. Soon they’re making out like teenagers again. But when a life-changing role falls into Eden’s lap, Coop just hopes she doesn’t give up on a love that’s meant to be.

***3 ‘Heavy sigh’ Stars*** I suppose it has to happen every once in a blue moon, though I wish it didn’t, but Jilted just didn’t do it for me, and believe me when I say that it hurts me to admit. It’s still getting a 3 star rating from me because it still has the smexy you expect from a Sawyer Bennett romance and I really liked Eden, but I unfortunately didn’t love nor fully warm up to Coop. Yes, he could be all kinds of Southern charm, good ‘old boy smexy, not gonna take that away from him, but his actions towards the start of the book just rubbed me the wrong way. Now I know some will think it’s because of how he views women and relationships, but nope, I was okay with that and his manwhore-ish ways, it was how he treated Eden at their first run in when she returns to Newberry. I didn’t expect him to welcome her with open arms, it’s obvious from how he’s “lived” his life that he’s never gotten over her, but what he did just rubbed me the wrong way because he knew better. Instead of a man, I saw a child and that image stuck with me throughout the book. It pains me to be in the minority because I am a huge Sawyer Bennett fangirl, but it is what it is. This is still a fun, quick and smexy read and as I said, I really liked Eden so the read was worth it in the end. So I’m just going to stick this one on the “It’s not you, it’s me” & “this is an anomaly” shelf and move on. ~ Copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed ~

Eden Goodnight and Cooper Mayfield were high school and college sweethearts. In a strange turn of events, Eden is discovered one day by a big time modeling agency and her life takes a dramatic turn. Instead of graduating from college, marrying Coop and then having his babies, Eden's new life takes her away from her home town of Newberry, GA and into a life of glitz and glamour where modeling eventually turns into acting. Flash forward 14 years and Eden is walking the red carpet with her fiance, Brad, when a bomb is dropped...Brad is cheating on her with his leading lady. Feeling humiliated, Eden flees the scene and quickly decides to hide out in the only place no one would ever think to look...Newberry, GA...at her childhood home that she inherited from her Grandmother. Imagine Eden's surprise when she realizes that Coop lives in the house when her grandmother left him half the house too. From there the fun begins. The things these two did to each other in the beginning was hysterical....I just kept laughing out loud! After a while, Eden and Coop get back to being civil towards each other and that's when left over feelings start to emerge. The two of them come to an agreement while Eden is still in town and quickly they start to realize that those feelings from 14 years ago have not gone away. It was a fun and entertaining trip these two went on to get to their happy ending, but it sure was worth it. I really loved both of these characters. They were fun and real and their story was perfect!

Don't leave this unread This is an absolutely fantastic second chance love story. Eden Goodnight is a big time movie star that went back to her small hometown to get away from scandal when her movie star fiancée cheated on her. Little does she know that her hometown thinks negatively of her. When she runs into her high school boyfriend Cooper Mayfield and the old sparks are there. They work through old hurts and wrong assumptions. But when Edens life comes back and she needs to go back can Coop deal with a long distance relationship. This is a great story by Sawyer Bennett and I could not put this book down.
