Description

There are a billion reasons Kate should marry her current boyfriend.

Will she trade them all to be madly in love?

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 a friend’s wedding. As his date.

But Katie made up her mind about Luc eight years ago, when she fled their hometown after a very public breakup. Yet there’s still a magnetism between them she can’t deny.

Katie thought her predictable relationship with Dexter would be the bedrock of a lasing, Christian marriage. But what if there’s more? What if God’s desire for her is a heart full of life? And what if that’s what Luc has offered all along?

"Katie and Luc dance off the pages of this book, making you fall in love with them and New Orleans. Full of surprises and romance." —Carolyne Aarsen, author of The Baby Promise

  1. Do you ever find yourself fantasizing that money could solve all your problems? Katie thinks money is the source of her problems; what kind of power do you place on money?
     
  2. After enduring a particularly humiliating situation back home in New Orleans, Katie has "moved on" with her life. What do you think about the way she chose to move on -- what might you do differently?
     
  3. The Bible says love is patient and love is kind. Would you have trouble believing a passionate connection like the one Katie shared with Luc was really love? Why or why not?
     
  4. Katie has chosen to live a life with the predictable Dexter so that she might maintain control over her emotions. Have you ever risked truly being hurt to follow your conscience and forgive someone?
     
  5. Dexter represents what a lot of churches have come to represent: predictable, organized and rule-based. Did you see anything missing in his character? Or did you prefer his order and lack of chaos? Did he feel like something was missing to you?
     
  6. Katie's best friend Eileen has seen her through all of life, the pain of losing Luc and her current life as a successful teacher. Has there been a time in life when a friend saw you more clearly than you saw yourself?
     
  7. Which character in the book did you identify with the most? Why?
     
  8. Do you think Katie made the right choice at the end of the story?
     
  9. When Katie tries to clean up her image, she only ends up humiliating herself further. Have you ever tried to make a situation better and made it worse?
     
  10. Katie felt her faith was strongest when her emotions were not involved. Have you ever had to relinquish control to God only to find the answer in your own weakness? When?

A BILLION REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD READ IT September 11, 2012

I could give you A BILLION REASONS WHY I liked this book by Kristin Billerbeck, but to be honest I'm just not that creative. This is the first book I've read by Billerbeck and though I wasn't exactly thrilled with the ending, I loved it just the same. I thought the characters were well thought out, it was wonderfully written, and I loved the storyline.

Katie McKenna fell for Luc DeForges years ago. Only problem is when she went out on a limb to make her feeling known, he rejected her. Eight years later and he's returned. Of course she can think of A BILLION REASONS WHY she shouldn't allow him back into her life. The only problem is that; she's still in love him and he's not one to take no for an answer.

Luc DeForges has always loved Katie, but he has a secret that had him saying no when he wanted nothing more to say than yes. But he's not the only one with a secret. Katie's mom has one of her own. Can Luc reveal his secret and still have the woman he loves?
