“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.

Sawyer is one of my go to authors, and with this book she continues to be! This book was read as a standalone, but is a part of a series. It's told in a dual POV. I couldn't put it down and I'm sure you won't either.
Eden was a super model turned big Hollywood actress. She recently was humiliated by her ex fiancé actor, in front of the press and paparazzi. Eden decides she needs to go back to her roots and hide from it all.
Cooper is a business owner, maintaining and growing his father's landscaping company. He is very closed off when it comes to love and opening up his heart. He finds solace in the company of a woman but for one need only.
Eden comes back home to Georgia after being so humiliated. She felt she needed to retreat somewhere no one will find her. When she pulls up to her family estate, she sees a man who she knows all too well, Cooper. Cooper was not so thrilled to see her. Eden discovers that her grandmother had left the estate to Cooper and her. This ignites some serious feuds between them. Eden and Cooper have a past and that past comes back with a vengeance. Sparks fly and rebound sex is had.
Will Eden stay this time? Can Cooper open up his heart to her once again? Do they go there separate ways?
I loved this book! The chemistry between Eden and Cooper was perfect! I liked how Eden was set to prove the town straight about everything they believed. This is a recommended beach read! Enjoy Cooper Mayfield!
