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.

Glitz and glam meet small town charm in Sawyer Bennett’s latest installment of her LOVE HURTS series. JILTED gave me a run for my money! Like every single Sawyer Bennett romance I’ve read, JILTED was absolute PERFECTION! Sassy movie star meets smooth-talking country boy in this incredibly sexy and fun second-chance romance. From the very beginning, I knew that Eden and Coop’s story was going to be a favorite of mine from this author. I probably say that with every one of her books, but hey, she IS that good! PLUS, I am a sucker for a good second-chance love story, so Ms. Bennett really did have me at HELLO! 

And let’s get right to it shall we…

“No more talking, Eden, unless it’s to tell me deeper or harder.”

That’s our Georgia boy ladies! He is one dirty-talker, that’s for sure. I LOVED him right off the bat! 

After being humiliated in the spotlight, Eden Goodnight needed a break from everything Hollywood. On a whim, she decides to go back to her home town in Georgia. She was expecting solace, peace, and downtime, and what she got was Cooper Mayfield, her old flame – the gorgeous, infuriating, and sexy as sin boy she fell in love with years ago. 

To say the sparks flew sexually right off the bat, would be incorrect! Oh, there were words thrown, but they were far from the sexy kind. Let’s just say that their reunion wasn’t such a happy one. But as time went by, and they settled their differences and learned a little of what they have been going through, the dynamic changes between them, and they fall back into that connection they had so easily years before. It’s beautiful. It’s sweet. It’s sexy. And by God, was it INTENSE, once the fireworks started!

“This ass will be mine. In every way you can imagine.”

Oh ladies, you have NO IDEA what you’re getting into with the likes of Cooper Mayfield. I’m fanning myself just thinking about it! Bennett’s heroes are THE BEST in every possible way, and Coop is no different. Coop and Eden were EXPLOSIVE to say the least! This was one rollercoaster ride of emotions that I did NOT want to get off of. 

“I believe I was put on this earth with the sole purpose of loving you.”

That’s right! Coop can do SWEET, just as well as he can do SEXY! In the end, these two characters are a definite favorite of mine out of all the Sawyer Bennett books I’ve read. I just love second-chance romances and I love glamour vs. small town charm stories. Together, these two facets made one HELL of a romance!
