Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.
Eden and Cooper were high school sweethearts, but life tore them apart. Cooper continued his life in their hometown, but Eden became a famous model and actress in Hollywood. While attending a red carpet event Eden finds out that her fiancee cheated on her and the next logical step for her is to go back to her hometown. When she gets back to her home, she find out that the house doesn’t belong only to her, but also to Cooper. Being back in town isn’t as great as it seemed, the people in town aren’t that nice to her and living with Cooper, the only man he ever loved, can it all be right again?
I did like the first book a bit more, but it was still a fun read. I didn’t warm up to Eden so much, but I really liked Cooped, he was very sweet, hard working and determined. It’s a well written novel with interesting plot and characters who stand out. Overall I enjoyed reading about Eden and Cooper’s story.
