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.

Oh my Gah! I effing loved this book! It’s official ladies and gentlemen, Sawyer Bennett is now one of my favorite authors. From light and fluffy to erotica and sexy, I’ve loved everything I’ve read by her. Jilted is my new fave. And what’s most surprising is the reason why.
Here’s what I loved: Eden! Yep, you won’t see that too often from me because I’m so demanding of romance heroines. I can’t help myself. I also judge them a teensy bit harder than the heroes because I need to be able to relate on some level. The good news here is that Eden checked most of my “must have” boxes. Yay!! She’s smart, successful, strong, but most important, she’s resilient. I adored her.
I also enjoyed Coop’s character. He’s sweet and sexy, but can also be a pain in the butt. Once he pulled his head out of his behind, I really loved him.
The storyline is both entertaining and engaging. It was an easy breezy read.
So, if you’re looking for an entertaining and light read, look no further. Jilted broke my heart and made me fall in love at the same time. It’s an amazing read!
