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.

Wow! Eden Goodnight was having a bad week. Hollywood’s “it” girl was cheated on by her fiancé, found out on the red carpet, fled to her hometown to a cold reception, and was confronted by her high school boyfriend,” the one who got away.” Nothing was going her way and surprisingly, she stayed. I was also having a bad week (though not as bad as her, admittedly) so every insult, snub, and mean word to her, I felt and experienced with her. Sawyer Bennett’s writing is such that I felt a part of this story. It was a great distraction and I loved her for it!
I really needed this book this week. There were definitely highs and lows, but the second chance romance was fun and flirty and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Coop is the real deal-hot, successful and has always loved Eden. He is an alpha in and out of the bedroom. Eden is no shrinking violet, although she does have a (maddening) tendency to run when things get tough. She is vulnerable when she shows up in town but ultimately has enough sass to deal with what life has thrown her. Together, Coop and Eden are…HOT!
I am no stranger to Sawyer Bennett’s writing, but this standalone is one of my favorites by her. It was light with some angst thrown in. Very enjoyable and a great read for the summer!
