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.

I say it every time I finish a book by this author...I LOVED IT! Ms. Bennett can not write a bad book. Ever. Just add Jilted to another favorite read of 2017.
Eden Goodnight and Cooper Mayfield were in love back when they were teenagers. But Hollywood came calling to Eden and it was an opportunity of a lifetime that she couldn't turn down. And with the long-distance relationship and fame, Eden and Cooper walked away from each other. They both didn't give into compromise.
Eden's glamorous celebrity lifestyle is not that fabulous at all. She may be the hottest star, but being in the limelight is lonely. And when her cheating and equally famous ex-fiancé publicly humiliates her, she goes into hiding in her small town. You think, being back home would be a great hideaway, but it's not. The town is not forgiving at all. They think Eden is way too good to be part of their town. And there is only one person who gives her the benefit of the doubt--and that's Cooper.
Cooper had only loved one woman and now she's walked back into his life. Eden is back and their banter is nothing more the hilarious. When these two get to know each other again, sparks fly all over. But nothing has changed--they both have separate careers in different places of the world. Can they both give it up for each other?
Jilted is all about forgiving and moving on. Another fantastic second chance romance story!
