Review...Jilted by Sawyer Bennett

Jilted by Sawyer Bennett 

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.

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancΓ© 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.

Five stars!

I’ve become a new fan of Sawyer. I love her writing and I loved this book. She gives us a page turning read and you can’t wait to see what’s going to happen with these two characters. You are rooting for them but know their past hasn’t let them be together and the same issues will arise in the present.

I love love me a second chance romance! And this one does not disappoint. Young love is ended because of fame and distance Coop and Eden couldn’t make a long distance relationship work and neither was willing to give up what they had or wanted to do.

After being publicly embarrassed by the press and “slapped” in the face by her fiancΓ©e Eden decides to run back home and get away from it all. She wasn’t expecting to come home to find her ex. He harbors some bad feeling towards her and they have this childish banter in the beginning that makes the story pretty amusing. 

They soon come up with a compromise and a way to live together and enjoy each other while she takes a break. Old feelings resurface but neither is willing to give into them. Their chemistry is HOT and the sex is off the charts, but not only that you really did feel their connection.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and their relationship. I can’t wait to read another by her.
