Lissa's Review: Jilted (Love Hurts #2) by Sawyer Bennett
RELEASED: July 11, 2017
GENRE: contemporary romance
LENGTH: 210 pages
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.
TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
Jilted was an interesting read. This was the second book I’ve read by Bennett. The first one I read was good. So I thought why not?
Eden leaves home to become an actress and leaves Coop behind. I get it their young and they didn’t think it would work. So as the years go by, she’s pretty much put her old town in the past. But comes home expecting that everything was still the same.
I had some issues with this story. I honestly, had no connection with Eden or Coop. I didn’t feel that passion that was between these two characters. Without the depth and passion, it just comes off a little awkward. The writing was on a good level. It just didn’t grab me. I didn’t have the urgency to finish the story and get to the end.
Overall, I have to be honest and give this Two Boundless Stars. It was okay, but it could have been better.
