Excerpt & Reviews by Jackie, Erin & Marina: Jilted by Sawyer Bennett


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.

I make no secret that Sawyer Bennett is one of my go to authors, I love her style of writing, I love her characters and I love how I feel after reading one of her books, this standalone gave me everything I want from a book, It's a second chance romance that's also a fun read.
Eden Goodnight is in Hollywood to make a name for her acting career not a name that's associated with a cheating partner so when she is humiliated at a red carpet premiere by her fiancé she heads home to lick her wounds. Cooper Mayfield was the man she left behind and he still lives and works in the small town Eden has run too. Will the time spent together rekindle old feelings and what happens when Eden is offered the role of a lifetime, will she leave Cooper for a second time.....
I fell in love with Eden and Cooper, they felt real, they felt like friends and their lighthearted banter was a breath of fresh air. This book has it all, its emotional and funny and let's not forget the Hollywood glamour. I read this book in one sitting, it drew me in from the first page. Once again Sawyer Bennett has shown that she is very good at what she does and she has given us yet another 5 star read.

Oh I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Centering on Eden and Cooper!
Eden and Cooper were childhood friends in love but when Eden makes the decision of her life to become a model and leave the small town, they are both sad! Fast forward fourteen years later and a scene on the red carpet with her Ex, Eden returns to her home town!
What she doesn't expect is for Cooper to be living in her house! Needless to say things get rather heated and she doesn't understand why everyone in town shuns her!
Their story was rather beautiful when you get into the nitty gritty and when the truth comes out as to why the town doesn't like her!
All in all, I wondered how the book would end and if things would get better for Eden! Read it for yourself to find out!
I just want to also mention that the Heat factor is off the charts hot
Oh yes indeed!! You have been warned!! Hehe!

This is a standalone novel and one that was an amazing read. I love Sawyer Bennett's writing style; her characters are well rounded, easy to relate too and believable.

I love a second chance at love story which is what Jilted is. When Eden Goodnight returns home to lick her wounds after being publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancee, she expects to find peace and support.  The opposite occurs, it appears the locals think she is a spoilt brat and have little sympathy.

Ironically the one person who offers support is the very man she left behind, her high school boyfriend, Cooper Mayfield.

Coop has never forgotten or gotten over the beautiful Eden. Despite initial misunderstandings, passion quickly reignites between Coop and Eden.

The chemistry between them sizzles and their banter had me laughing out loud on several occasions.

I really loved Coop, he is the total package.  It is obvious how much he cares about Eden and he was sexy yet tender and totally melted my heart.

Will Eden take a chance on her relationship with Coop or will she return to the bright lights to pursue her career?

I received an ARC through the publisher and Netgalley and voluntarily reviewed.

She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
