A Billion Reasons Why

A Billion Reasons Why
Kristen Billerbeck

Katie McKenna has a safe, fulfilling life in California. Her almost fiance, Dexter, is dependable, reliable, and responsible. Her job as a special needs teacher gives her much joy and for the most part life is good. Everything, and I do mean everything, is turned upside down when Katie's ex-boyfriend and self-made millionaire, Luc DeForges, saunters back into her life. He has come to take Katie back home to New Orleans for a friend's wedding. As his date.

Katie already knows exactly what she thinks about Luc and the eight years since their very public breakup has given the time needed to heal many of her hurts. She's moved on with her life, and yet, there is chemistry between them that can not be denied. Luc comes luring Katie into her old life of music and dancing and Katie finds herself almost unable to resist. But there are a billion reasons why Katie won't let Luc back in and why predictable Dexter is the man for her....or is he?

As Katie is swept away back to the south you'll find yourself being swept away as well. I read this book during a particularly chilly couple of days and it was the perfect escape. Billerbeck writes with creative detail and I felt like I was in New Orleans and I could feel the humidity. I wanted to hop on a plane and go dancing with the characters.

I'm not typically a huge fan of chick lit but Kristin Billerbeck is my favorite in this genre. I'll admit it was her alone who brought me over to the "dark side".  A Billion Reasons Why is a good read. Katie is a likeable, endearing character that you'll find yourself connecting with. Luc is what every girl could want for in a man. He loves Jesus, loves his woman, is stinking handsome, is a millionaire, and has a vulnerable side. Sigh...

Thank you to Thomas Nelson and Book Sneeze for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest review.
