Jilted - Sawyer Bennett - Review Blitz

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.

4 Stars 

Although Jilted is the second title in the Love Hurts series, it can easily be read as a standalone.  There is no cross over of characters between Sex In The Sticks the previous title in the Love Hurts series, and Jilted. 

Every time I see a new title written by Sawyer Bennett, I just have to read it, as her book are always well written, engaging and entertaining, and Jilted was no exception. 

Jilted is a fun, sexy, heat filled second chance contemporary romance.   I thoroughly enjoyed Eden and Cooper, they were both incredibly endearing and their chemistry was undeniable.  The banter and interactions they share are quite sweet, and at times quite humorous.  There is an element of angst throughout this title, but it's not over the top. 

Overall Jilted is a great blend of small town romance, and the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and I will be eagerly anticipating the next release from this wonderful author. 

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.
A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.
Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. 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.
