This was a really cute second chance romance, Eden and Coop were together at the age of 18 but, couldn't keep up with a long-distance relationship so they mutually ended things. Eden was just getting into the business of being a model/actress in Hollywood, and Coop wanted to stay home in Georgia and grow his landscape architecture business. Both weren't willing to give up on their dreams so that's why it didn't work. But, this is first-love stuff we're talking about here, and that doesn't just go away. Not even after 14 years.
Eden decides to go back home to Georgia for some R&R and to get away from paparazzi and the media surrounding her break-up with her cheating fiancé, and when she gets there she realizes that the estate that she thought her grandmother left solely to her, is in fact a shared property with Coop and now they must find a way to live in the same house without killing each other.
I love the premise of this trope and it was entertaining, but in the beginning, there were some things that bothered me about the Eden’s behavior, like acting childish about their arrangement. In the grand scheme of things, I was pleased with her character overall but, I found myself shaking my head at her more than once. By the end I really liked Eden, but there was just something about her character that I couldn't connect to. I'm not sure if it was her sense of entitlement in the beginning or not, because I thought I got over that. Maybe my subconscious couldn't see past it, I guess I'll never know!
I really loved Coop and the way he handled Eden's attitude. That, combined with the chemistry these two had made the banter very cute and snarky. And when it came to the sexy times I was pleasantly surprised that Coop has such a dirty mouth and a kinky side. No too much though, it was just right.
This was my first book by this author and I was very impressed by her writing, I just think something was missing for me personally. But if you're looking for a quick, sexy, summer read, I think this book would be great!
