Review Tour: Jilted by Sawyer Bennett

 

descriptionSawyer Bennett's brand new series of standalone romances! LOVE HURTS!

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.
 


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jilted is the second book in the Love Hurts series. Following Coop & Eden, this was a delightful, sweet, hot and entertaining second chance romance story. Both characters are down to earth. They were together when they were younger but life and career push them away. Fourteen years later, not a lot has changed but the affection they had towards each other is very much present.

As always with Sawyer Bennett, I'm immediately taken away in new world and new place. I love her ability to write so many different stories with lots of different outcomes.
In here, it has a rocky start with Coop & Eden fighting each other with all they got. It was funny to see them try to win a battle they could only loose. There were so much unresolved matters and sexual tension between them, there was only one way to solve their "problems".

Jilted is the perfect book for a Sunday at the beach or for any day where you can just read and relax. Low on the angst and drama, if you are looking for some steam balanced with humors and endearing characters, you've found your happiness.
