Title: Jilted (Love Hurts #2)

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Date of Publication: July 11, 2017


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.

Christina’s 4 Star Review

Eden is a Hollywood It-girl, but when her fiancé cheats and a back and forth PR war blows up, she’s forced back to her small town as she figures out her next steps. So when Cooper, her longtime ex-boyfriend comes back into her life, she needs to decide if her Hollywood career is worth giving up for a second chance at romance with the one who should have been “the one”.

Eden and Cooper are likeable character that you could easily fall in love with. I’m a sucker for second chances and the history between the two made for a sweet, spicy, love story. The book is told from a first person point of view from both characters. The smattering of flashbacks and small town nature of the story leave the characters grounded, no matter how far removed Eden is from her history.

I loved this book. This was second chance romance at its finest. Yes there was some cheesiness and predictability, but it was one of those stories that makes you feel fuzzy and warm at the end. I have not read the first book in the series of standalones so I am going to fix that right away. You do NOT have to have read the first to read Jilted. All in all, a great beach or summer read!
