5 Second Chance CROWNS
Sawyer Bennett continues to impress with her second book in the Love Hurts series. While reading Jilted, I became enamored with Coop and Eden and watching them rekindle what they once had between them.
Coop is the perfect southern gentleman, and I absolutely fell under his spell. His manners and candor are charming, and his love of the Newberry, the town they grew up in, is enchanting. While he as earned the reputation of a playboy, he has never pretended to like anyone or invest feelings in them, making him attractive to readers. He also rushes to the defense of Eden on several occasions but never in a way that demeans her, and that is so hot!
Eden is an actress with a philanthropic heart of gold, and it is completely authentic. Although she loves acting, she finds the world of Hollywood to be empty. Trying to evade scandal puts her back in her hometown and in the direct path of Coop. While she is home, Eden not only realizes how lonely and disconnected she has become, but she also realizes what she gave up with Coop so long ago.
This is going to be one of my favorite second chance romances, mainly because I love Eden and Coop together. Their first encounter will have you laughing, and the longer she stays and the more Coop comes to her defense the more readers see how much they still care for each other, dismissing the lust only assumption. Watching them fall back together is filled with passion and heart, and this is where readers will really fall in love with these two. The ending is absolutely perfect, and matches every single aspect of the evolution of these characters throughout the novel.
Sawyer Bennett has really mastered sensuous romance. I know with every single book that I will not only get heat and steam in the bedroom, but I will also get a story-line that pulls on my heart strings, making her a one-click author for me.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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.
