Sawyer Bennett's brand new series of standalone romances! LOVE HURTS!
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.

One Line: A great second chance love story.
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
Yet another winner from Sawyer Bennett. I know I’m in for a treat when I read one of Bennett’s books and this one is no different. I really enjoyed the setting and the characters. I’m a sucker for second chance romances, so if that’s your thing, you’ll love this book.
It was so obvious these two character were meant to be, but you can also tell that they needed the time apart to follow their passions and dreams. I love stories like that, giving each person time to grow and discover themselves, and then having them come back together and rediscover the love that never died. It was funny watching Eden and Coop deny their feelings for each other and then finally owning up to it. Their chemistry and banter was highly entertaining and you could feel the love and connection they shared. There was one moment where I wanted to smack some sense into Coop though, but he quickly got his head out of his butt and it all worked out in the end.
This is just one of those feel good romances, perfect for a summer time, or any time really, read. It’s pretty formulaic and breezy, which is the kind of read you want every now and then. You know what going to happen, but you just like watching it play out nonetheless.
