Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorite go to authors so I jumped at the chance to read her new book. Jilted was a fun and flirty, easy to read second chance romance. I was captivated from the moment I started till the very end. I could not put this book down.
I absolutely adored Eden and Coop's story. I loved getting to know them and getting to see their past because it made me better understand their present. Eden is the one that got away and Coop is the boy she ultimately left behind in her pursuit of success in the modeling/acting world. When Eden is publicly humiliated by her fiance, Brad, she returns to her hometown to get away from all the drama and to put the scandal behind her. She really hasn't been back to her hometown or seen Coop but once in the last 14 years since she left that small town behind her. The one person who seems to understand what she is going through is Coop and they are thrown together in a twist of fate. His small town charm is no match for Eden's world of glitz, glam, and money but when Eden comes home he feels responsible for getting her out of her funk and putting a smile back on her face. It's love at first sight for them once again but are things really that much different than when they decided to call it quite 14 years ago?! Coop hopes his love can be enough for her this time and that she will finally take a chance on the love that was always meant to be.
I loved how in love and how much Eden and Coop really cared for one another. I was rooting for them to get their happily ever after even though their lives are complete opposites of one another. I thought they were both being selfish and neither wanted to compromise which is a key part of any relationship. I wanted to shake them around several times to make them get their acts together so they could see what was right in front of them and not give up on their amazing love for one another. But at the same time I wanted to hold them tight and tell them that everything would be okay and work out in the end. I loved this book and can't wait for the next great one from Sawyer Bennett.
