InkSlinger PR Spotlight + Review: Jilted by Sawyer Bennett

Love Hurts, 2
Sawyer Bennett
July 11, 2017

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 fiancĂ© 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. 

My Thoughts:
I totally liked Jilted. We have Eden Goodnight who finds out her fiancee has been cheating on her with his co-star. How cliche. Anyway, she decides to head back to her hometown to recuperate. Yet, she doesn't receive the welcome she was expecting. Everyone is looking at her like she's pond scum. I felt bad for her. Even though she lives a glamorous life, she's all alone. Nothing is going to plan. 

Coop is upset with Eden, because she's back in town. He truly believes she's a cold-hearted bitch. There's a few things he doesn't know, so he assumes the worst of her. However, everything gets reveal, and he feels pretty bad for his part. At the same time they are starting to rekindle an old relationship, but more like a rebound for both of them. 

I did enjoyed this story from start to finish. Yes, there are some steamy parts, but you see these two reconnecting. Eden and Coop use to be a hot little item, but their lives were going in two different directions at the time. When they do reconnect it's like they never were apart. Basically, Jilted is a beach kind of read. It's nothing too stressful and there are some fun moments. So, if you are in a mood for something light, and could be read in a day or two, you might consider Jilted
