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.
Eeek! Sawyer Bennett sure takes everyone on an incredible ride with Jilted! It’s a second chance, enemies to lovers story that is sure to deliver the laughs, swoons, and fast heart beats.
After Eden Goodnight is embarrassed beyond belief, the only thing she can do is escape to her hometown to try to save what’s left of her ego. While she thinks she’ll get to wallow in peace, she quickly discovers that won’t be happening when she finds Cooper Mayfield living in her family’s home. Cooper was her first love, her everything, until she took a chance at being an actress.
The two get along like oil and water. Not only is Eden a hollywood star and Cooper a country boy, but then you also throw in the fact that they are exes. The bickering and banter between the two of them are amazing! Funny and flirty. There is an undeniable attracted between the two of them, chemistry that can’t be turned off. So, soon the bickering turns into them being tangled up together in bed.
But it’s just a little rebound fun, right?
The more time they spend together, in bed and getting to know the other person, the more it feels like something more than a little fling. There is just this spark between them that can’t seem to fade out. But Eden won’t be in town forever. And Cooper doesn’t want to be left again. So, sometimes love doesn’t conquer all, right?
I love how Sawyer Bennett took a plot that’s been done a dozen time, and turns it into something fresh and new. It probably has something to do with her amazing writing, witty dialogue and characters you can’t help but fall in love with. If you are looking for a book to make you smile and tug on the heart strings, this is the book for you!
