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.

I really enjoy Sawyer Bennett’s writing and how she can go back and forth between writing dark, angsty, emotional reads. To writing some light, hot, steamy, loving reads. She’s very versatile. Jilted is a second chance love story that I really enjoyed. Eden Goodnight became a famous model that transitioned into acting. After being in the spotlight for about 14 yrs she heads home to Newberry to get away after an incident on the red carpet. And of course she runs into Cooper Mayfield her high school sweetheart. Here’s where it gets interesting because the story is in dual points of view and both had said that they broke up amicably. Both were heartbroken but it didn’t end on a bad note. But of course there was some misunderstandings and Coop was a bit of a jerk & I wanted Eden to just shake him!! Because if it ended well and he claims to know her why did he believe the stories? He was a little harsh but they did talk it out and he finally saw it from her side. From there things picked up and were sweet, fun, & steamy. I really enjoyed the story and how things unfolded and of course the love story was HOTT!!!!!! Jilted was definitely a fun summer read for me.
