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.
Funny, funny, funny and sexy. Bennett has done it again. Eden is pretty down to earth considering she's an Oscar winning actress. She returns to the small town she'd left behind and the only place she called home only to find her high school sweetheart had moved into that home and was living there full time. The hilarious bantering and familiar way they communicate, as only old loves can do, is the main draw for me. I couldn't wait to see what they would do next.
Coop is independent and has a lot of pent up anger towards Eden that she can't quite reconcile. In fact, the entire town is angry with her for something that she couldn't control. When she is told why everyone is mad at her, she is devastated and wants to rectify the issue immediately. She and Coop reach an agreement and while they both have exes dogging them, they grow closer. Coop is hoping to get back the woman he has always loved. Eden wants Coop back, but being in the public eye makes things tricky, especially when the man who cheated on her keeps pushing his way into her life.
The two work as a team to get through the trials of living in a small town, come up with a plan to prove to everyone else Eden is not guilty of anything but being busy, and finding that old love that never really died. Both characters are well developed and have a great chemistry. Eden isn't a wallflower. Coop is a great catch with a lot to offer the right woman....
