Great read
Jilted: A Love Hurts Novel - Sawyer Bennett

This is an absolutely fantastic second chance love story. Eden Goodnight is a big time movie star that went back to her small hometown to get away from scandal when her movie star fiancée cheated on her. Little does she know that her hometown thinks negatively of her. When she runs into her high school boyfriend Cooper Mayfield and the old sparks are there. They work through old hurts and wrong assumptions. But when Edens life comes back and she needs to go back can Coop deal with a long distance relationship. This is a great story by Sawyer Bennett and I could not put this book down.

Jilted: A Love Hurts Novel - Sawyer Bennett

Eden Goodnight and Cooper Mayfield were high school and college sweethearts.  In a strange turn of events, Eden is discovered one day by a big time modeling agency and her life takes a dramatic turn.  Instead of graduating from college, marrying Coop and then having his babies, Eden's new life takes her away from her home town of Newberry, GA and into a life of glitz and glamour where modeling eventually turns into acting.  

Flash forward 14 years and Eden is walking the red carpet with her fiance, Brad, when a bomb is dropped...Brad is cheating on her with his leading lady.  Feeling humiliated, Eden flees the scene and quickly decides to hide out in the only place no one would ever think to look...Newberry, GA...at her childhood home that she inherited from her Grandmother.  Imagine Eden's surprise when she realizes that Coop lives in the house when her grandmother left him half the house too.  From there the fun begins.  The things these two did to each other in the beginning was hysterical....I just kept laughing out loud!

After a while, Eden and Coop get back to being civil towards each other and that's when left over feelings start to emerge.  The two of them come to an agreement  while Eden is still in town and quickly they start to realize that those feelings from 14 years ago have not gone away.  It was a fun and entertaining trip these two went on to get to their happy ending, but it sure was worth it.

I really loved both of these characters.  They were fun and real and their story was perfect!

Piper Perish
Piper Perish - Kayla Cagan

I checked this out of the library because the cover was so pretty. And it's about teen artists. But the main character is so damn dense I cannot stand her. No, honey, you didn't make your boyfriend gay by looking boyish. No, sweetie, he won't like girls if you have bigger boobs. It doesn't work that way. So I am not going to waste any more time on this. If at 100 pages I still cannot stand the story, then I'm out. I have many more books to read.

Gem and Dixie
Gem & Dixie - Sara Zarr

edit: After I wrote this review I realized there was a simple part of the story I felt like touching on: how to pronounce "Gem". She corrects 2 different people that "...it's Gem, not Jim." Okay, this is petty and I know that, but what is the difference? I seriously cannot tell. Was that really what you needed to write? Because I cannot tell a phonetic difference in those two words.

 

original:

This was nothing original. Nothing new. It was a short read, and the premise was simple. Gem and Dixie live with their selfish, druggie mom in a piss-poor tenement block with no food. Their dad is gone, and their mom cares more about being their buddy than an adult. Gem is the mature one. Dixie is still starry eyed and refuses to believe their parents are bad, no matter how many times her heart gets broken. 

 

It's full of typical young adult tropes. You just want to slap the shit out of Dixie the entire book. No matter the nasty words, the loud shouting or the fact their mother doesn't feed them, she just can't swallow the fact mom is a neglectful addict. "Maybe she has reasons..." No honey. No. You have to stop being stupid. It's getting very old.

 

The dad is your typical "I wish I was a rock star" asshole. He only loves himself. He does not even acknowledge Gem as his daughter. It's always "Dixie and her sister". "You know how your sister is." He's a douche bag.

 

I didn't learn much from this, except that I get tired of wading through the young adult muck to find the gold.
