Publisher's Summary

The high school beauty queen...

The face of baby food, the darling of surfing commercials, and the exotic stunner who walked away with the Miss California title at 18, Mary Phillips has heard, "you're so beautiful" from childhood on. Tired of being her mother's personal Barbie, she traded in her tiara and a lucrative modeling contract for combat boots and life as a Marine. She's lost good friends and seen more walking wounded than she cares to admit, but this Marine wouldn't trade her assignment for all the Manolo Blahniks in the world. What does it matter she has no one waiting at home?

The class nerd...

Kyle Stewart heard every variation as he went through school: nerd, geek, four-eyes, weirdo - and he rolled with it. He could count on one hand the number of girls who ever deigned to talk to him about something other than tutoring. But as the only self-made millionaire from his graduating class, he has the last laugh.

A high school reunion...

Despite the invitation, Mary didn't plan to attend the 10-year reunion. The last thing she wanted to hear was, "you could have been so much, what happened?" But running into Kyle at the local coffee shop reminds her that not everyone judges by appearance. Kyle once swore to rub his former tormentors noses in his success, but when the reunion rolls around, he's reluctant to go. Seeing Mary again encourages him to confront his one lingering regret, and the millionaire dares to reach for happiness.

Can Combat Barbie and her nerd overcome the past to love another day?

The story was decent........

Cute little IR romance. this book is as described on the summary, old class mates meeting each other after so many years. The length of the story it was a cute little romance HOWEVER, the narration/narrator is choppy to me especially at the ends of sentences. It bother me a bit.
