A Billion Reasons Why by Kristin Billerbeck

He’s a handsome billionaire. She’s not impressed.
Katie McKenna has never loved any man but one: billionaire Luc DeForges. He was her first love. But there are a billion reasons why she's engaged instead to Dexter Hastings, a solid and stable man who wants the same things she does: marriage and a family but all of the things that she wants without the deep-seeded pain and fear of being abandoned that Luc brings. Dexter and she have worked an arrangement that's akin to faith without action, love without deeds -- a dead faith. Going home to New Orleans to sing for her childhood friend's wedding, Katie must search her heart to find out if any of her reasons for being with Dexter are stronger than love. Only when Katie steps fully into faith and jumps off the cliff of life into the arms of Luc does she understand the fullness of God's grace.

For starters, I absolutely loved this book. Not only did it incorporate romance, but it also included a strong willed girl, willing to follow her instincts. The only thing that bothered me about this book was that it ended to soon. I wish that there was a sequel I could read. I loved Luc and knew I would fall in love with him the second her was introduced into the story. The chemistry between him and Katie was explosive. The story line was a little clique. I hated Dexter as a character just because he was the one in the way of Katie and Luc. This book is a romance fanatics dream. I would recommend it to anyone willing to dive into such a tale.

  1. 'A Billion Reasons Why' is a traditional romance novel, with a Christian slant, written by Kristin Billerbeck and published by Thomas Nelson. The back cover reads: "Katie McKenna leads a perfect life. She has a fulfilling job, a cute apartment, and a wedding to plan with her soon-to-be fiancé, Dexter. She can think of a billion reasons why she should marry Dexter. He's everything she wants in a husband. And then in walks Luc DeForges, her bold, breathtaking ex-boyfriend. Only now he's a millionaire. And he wants her to go home to New Orleans to sing for her childhood friend's wedding. As his date." I thought this book was alright. It wasn't anything spectacular, but it wasn't bad. It was nice to read, what I would call, an old school romance. It was however quite predictable, I think most people will have guessed the ending by the end of the first chapter. This book is a nice one to read if you want a light easy going read, and is a good option for those that want a more sedate romance novel, as opposed to the more "bodice-ripping" variety.
