Chloe Rand's life is great. She has a serious boyfriend, she's about to start her junior year of high school, and she has a tight group of girlfriends. But when her boyfriend moves cross country, he dumps her cold right in the airport terminal. Chloe's devastated, and soon learns that when you're the prettiest girl in school and totally unattached, everyone starts treating you differently. Girls don't trust you, guys don't know what to make of you, and everyone assumes you're spoiled, dumb, or both.
Chloe realizes she's been living the last few years in a bubble and decides to do something about it. But when she falls for Billy, a total geek, will it make her situation better...or worse?
Scary Beautiful...a romantic comedy for every girl who has fallen for the wrong guy.
Niki's originally from Colorado and has been dying to set a story there. Though Scary Beautiful is Niki's tenth book (the first six were romance novels written under the name Nicole Burnham), this is the first one set in Colorado. The town of Vista Verde doesn't really exist, though there is a large ranch called Vista Verde near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Niki put her fictional town of Vista Verde next to the real town of Boulder.
"(a) humorous and delightful story...a definite purchase for Burnham fans."
