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 know I say this all the time, but I FLOVE Sawyer Bennett. She just keeps giving us these amazing books with sexy, charming and down to earth characters. Jilted is filled with mature angst, down home southern charm, second chance love and a slurry mole or two that you will love to hate!
You hear all the time that “time heals all wounds” or “absence makes the heart grow fonder”…these are both true and false when it comes to Cooper and Eden. They’re young love was probably something we all would have been jealous of at that age. Their futures separate them for fourteen years and when they finally see each other again all the heard feelings and pain come back, but some things you just can’t look past.
The minute I laid eyes on her from across the yard, I recognized her. Her beauty was such that I would never mistake her for anyone else.
It seemed that as much as they wanted to hate each other they just couldn’t. It isn’t long before they slowly start to get over themselves and get under each other ;) Eden and Coop are both really mature about what they have been through and the “relationship” that they embark on now.
“The loss of young love was the sacrificial price, Eden. It hurt us both, but it wasn’t the end of the world for us either. We both moved on and we’re both alright.”
Rebound Sex. That’s what they are calling it, well I called BULL SHIT from the moment that statement was made LMAO Sawyer writes us such wonderful characters, I could read them and just see right through their little charade. Sure it doesn’t wall come back overnight, but watching them get reacquainted was great!
I’ve been ruined for anything but Eden. Losing her hurt in a way that I was never able to fully recognize until right this moment as I’m holding her in my arms and floating in the Atlantic Ocean.
And it gets H-O-T ladies….I mean don’t wear panties at all when you read, unless you want to go through a few pairs! I have to be honest with you, I don’t normally wish that I could BE a character in a book, but hot damn is Eden one lucky lady!
Oh geez. He’s not only going to fuck my ass, but it’s going to be hard. I don’t know whether to be scared or delighted.
I really loved how they could go from being sweet and romantic, lazy and relaxed and then before you know it they are naked somewhere and making you blush! Reading along as they tried to figure out what they want and where they are going had me on the edge of my seat. I wanted it to all work out but just couldn’t see how the movie star living in LA and the landscape designer from Newberry were going to make it work in the end. Same roots, different careers, perfect love.
This thing between me and Coop…is is headed anywhere beyond what we have right now?
….I guess you will have to read to find out ;)
