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.

If you have to find out your fiance has cheated on you, definitely hope you don't hear about in the middle of the red carpet while you are both walking into the premiere of his latest film. As a famous film actress, you have learned to control your features and not give anything away, but this is more than a human being can take!
Eden has spent the last fourteen years of her life building her career. She was a successful model first and then seamlessly made the switch to Hollywood and never looked back. It took a lot of hard work and sacrifice. Never had she felt so betrayed.
Going home to Newberry, Georgia was meant to help her think and plan her future. Solitude was all she wanted, never dreaming of finding her past lover living in her ancestral home. Coop was still as handsome as ever. Now she would have to deal with her past as well as her present and she was too vulnerable to cope.
Sawyer Bennett has a hit here. This story is not like the weepy stories of second chances you encounter out there. Her characters are strong, determined, and full of heart. These are two people who were once in love and could not work out the logistics of living at two opposite sides of the country. Meeting again stirs a lot of emotions, secrets, and dreams, but it does not solve the original problem. The journey these two characters must take is what makes this story so fantastic.
I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I thank the author for sharing a copy of her book with me.
