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.

Didn't grab me
Jilted was an interesting read. This was the second book I’ve read by Bennett. The first one I read was good. So I thought why not?
Eden leaves home to become an actress and leaves Coop behind. I get it their young and they didn’t think it would work. So as the years go by, she’s pretty much put her old town in the past. But comes home expecting that everything was still the same.
I had some issues with this story. I honestly, had no connection with Eden or Coop. I didn’t feel that passion that was between these two characters. Without the depth and passion, it just comes off a little awkward. The writing was on a good level. It just didn’t grab me. I didn’t have the urgency to finish the story and get to the end.
Overall, I have to be honest and give this Two Boundless Stars. It was okay, but it could have been better.
Good second chance romance
Such a great second chance romance! When Hollywood star Eden Goodnight is jilted by her Hollywood fiance, she heads home where she runs into her ex-boyfriend Cooper Mayfield. They grew apart, but never really got over each other. Now, back in town together, the old feelings reunite. Can they keep their rebound status or will it be so much more this time around?
I really liked the character in this book. My heart went out to Cooper and Eden as they tried to work their way back to each other. I could feel Eden's pain and frustration at what her life had become. I loved who Cooper became, but I have to say at the beginning, I was a little put off with him, but then again, he was always carrying a torch for Eden, he just didn't realize it. This was a good read and I'd love to see more in this small town!
Second Chance Together
Wow!! Second chance, fame, and lots of sex, Jilted by Sawyer Bennett just blew me away. I totally struggled with having to put down this book. While walking the red carpet at a Hollywood event beautiful Eden Goodnight discovers her fiancé cheated on her. Needing to get away, she her hometown but unknowingly, Cooper Mayfield, the boy she left behind, is living in her home.
In this story we are exposed to the worse and best of small town living. Some things might never change in her small town, but Eden is at a loss to understand why the locals are so rude to her. Eden and Coop need to figure out how to share the home they both now own and how to move on from what they had to what they now want. Ms. Bennett did a nice job balancing the sexy with the feelings Eden and Coop were rediscovering.
I totally enjoyed reading this wonderful book and highly recommend this book to other readers.
