Ten years ago, Peyton Locke got dumped right before the biggest moment of her life. Valedictorian with a side of heartbreak--thanks to Jack Cooper.

Nick and Jack were competitive throughout school. When Nick was named Captain of the baseball team, Jack's jealousy got the better of him. He did the one thing he knew would hurt Nick, ask Peyton out on a date. Nick, being the introvert, geeky type never had the guts to ask Peyton out. But he loved her from the day she offered to share her candy with him in class. Nick thought if he could "compete" with her grade-wise, it would put him on her radar.
Jack was always the "ladies man". He had no trouble getting dates. When he asked Peyton out, he didn't expect to enjoy being around her so much. As it was, Jack had dreams to become an actor and left just shy of Peyton giving her Valedictorian speech, forever crushing her heart. Nick was there to pick up the pieces, but Peyton saw him as just a friend.
Peyton returned home after becoming a doctor. While home, she picked up where she left off with Nick. They became fast friends, but nothing more. Nick, in attempt to get Peyton to "see" him, convinces Petyon to attend their High School reunion as his "date". There they run into Jack, who has unfinished business...

Jack Cooper has left a trail of mistakes in his past that he's determined to correct while he prepares for his next movie role so it's a complete surprise to see him in his hometown during his 10 year high school reunion. I guess it takes a blast from the past to shake some people up and that's really good news for Peyton and her high school friend and competitor, Nick. These short novellas with a common theme are a wonderful way to sample the writing style of authors that you might not have read before. They're fun! I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
