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.

After discovery that her fiance cheated on her during a red carpet appearance, Eden Goodnight decides to get out of dodge (California) and go back home to Newberry, Georgia. Little did she know, when she shows up to the home she grew up in, her first love, Coop Mayfield is also occupying residence there.

Coop and Eden were each other’s first love, but when a modeling scout wanted Eden to walk the runway, they couldn’t make their relationship work and although they ended on “good terms” Coop has never really let another woman to take residence in his heart but rather his bed. Their reunion wasn’t one to be missed for sure, but after they set some rules, it’s all about rebound sex.

I love second chance romance. I knew sparks were going to be on fire between Eden and Coop that’s for sure. And although was upset about the ex-fiance’s cheating, she really wasn’t in love with him anyway. There was funny moments at the beginning between Eden and Coop and the sexy times was hot. I think I wanted a bit more angst. Overall, if you’re looking for a second chance at love, add Jilted to your Summer read.
