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.
Jilt - to suddenly reject or abandon (a lover).
This is exactly what happened to Eden Goodnight. As she was on the red carpet, the paparazzi was throwing questions out at her and the one that hit home was, did she know her fiancé, Brad Wright, was stepping out on her with his newest co-star?
Eden took flight and fled back to her family home. There she runs into her first love, Coop, who was given, the house (along with Eden), when her grandmother passed away.
At the beginning the two of them are at odds and do some comical antics. Once things settle down, they decide to have rebound sex. From there, they are explosive together. The town thinks Eden shunned them when they most needed her, but she didn't and the issue is resolved.
Coop was dating Melissa, a bit of a tramp, and she causes all kinds of problems with Coop and Eden out of pure jealousy.
There is an expiration date on their relationship, but can Coop and Eden get past the hurt again as the time for her to depart draws nearer.
What a wonderfully written book. I truly enjoyed this one and am such a big Sawyer Bennett fan.
