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 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.

Fantastic book! 5 Stars!!! to Jilted (Love Hurts #2) by Sawyer Bennett.
Coming July 11th 2017
Cooper and Eden…….
What a brilliant book! This book was amazing in every detail. The author gave us real, likable and unlikable characters. Every page flowed effortlessly into the next. From the first page to the epilogue (which I loved!) I was engaged in the story of Cooper and Eden.
Eden was special; she was just perfect. Her character was honest, loyal, kind, generous and personable. Even when situations for her were less than good ones, her strong personality shone through.
That said, Cooper was not so likable at first. He was outright mean to Eden when she returned to their hometown. He was also spiteful and I thought he acted immaturely sometimes. I admit to wanting to smack him on more than one occasion for his assumptions. Because of their past, I thought that no matter how guilty Eden might have appeared, he should have given her the benefit of the doubt. He didn’t.
Eden and Cooper were high school sweethearts. They loved each other from that young age and always planned on a life together.
Unfortunately, plans change.
Cooper and Eden mutually ended their relationship.
When Eden came back to town after being away for more than a decade, she was shocked and dismayed, not to mention a little more than confused, to find she wasn’t welcome.
Circumstances had thrown Eden and Cooper together. There is angst and childish behavior between them at first. That said, I loved everything. Watching Eden and Cooper find their way back together was magical. But for them it was difficult. Even so they each secretly hoped to have a second chance at a future together. Unfortunately that might not happen.
Jilted does have many ‘feels.’ This book and its outcome warmed my heart. The intimacy between Cooper and Eden was sexy and erotic; their chemistry was undeniably scorching hot!
There wasn’t a single thing I did not love about this book! Oh wait…there was one thing I hated. Actually I should say there was one person I hated. But you’ll have to read for yourself and see if you have the same opinion. 😉
Jilted is the second book in the Love Hurts series. The books are standalone and not related so it doesn’t matter what order you read them. I do recommend you read book one though, Sex In The Sticks. I adored that book as well!
