Overview

Trust and stability became empty words the day motherless, sixteen-year-old Carrie Norwell's brothers were murdered and her father's heart gave out at the scene. Five years later, her barricaded heart remains virtually impenetrable to anyone willing to get close and offer what she wants more than anything: a loving family of her own.

That's exactly what Billy Jay Eldridge wants to offer the right girl. Operating on a heart and spirit rivaled only by his looks, he's two years out of college, managing a store and on his way up the corporate ladder. Still, he toys daily with nobler--yet dangerous--career aspirations. Then shy, quiet Carrie joins his crew. Intrigued by her haunted eyes, he sets out to know her better, unaware his life's calling will be the greatest obstacle to getting her to accept from him what she wants and needs most.

This book was great, it was a first from this author. The story was amazing, Billy Jay is I think every woman's dream come true. I got a little upset with Carrie, but then I started to really put myself in a situation like that, and I just loved the story all the more. Billy Jay's sister was not always the right sister for him, I would never give my brother doubts, especially when he is experiencing love. Oh well, I suppose every author sees the character in a different way.

Is it possible to convince someone that they are the answer to your prayers? Perhaps with allot of faith and some perseverance thrown in for good measure. Perseverance is something Billy Jay Eldridge has lots of and while he has had his fair share of bumps in the road of his life he truly believes that Carrie Norwell is the woman for him. One glance of her beautiful face and sweet smile won him over and he is determined to show Carrie what his love can provide her. Carrie on the other hand has dealt with horrific grief and sadness beyond her 21 years and fears any type of relationship will break her heart and hurt her again. Carrie is not sure she could recover from or survive another emotional loss. Billy Jay knows Carrie could learn to trust and he has enough love for both of them all he need do is remain his sweet, charming self. Yet for every step forward they take in the relationship it seems so many setbacks occur that he worries that he is always saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Carrie is trying to take her life in a new direction by finding friends, getting her degree and expanding her experiences outside of the house she shares with her aunt, but can she go so far as to commit to Billy Jay? Determination and a vigilant belief that prayers do get answered Billy Jay continues his quest and gets Carrie to think that maybe she could dip just a small bit of her toe in the water and see what happens between them. What a fascinating book with truly well written characters. It is a very chaste relationship but with the angle of first, young love and learning to find yourself when you have so much baggage at such a young age this is the type of relationship that should be written about Billy Jay and Carrie. I think the push and pull of the relationship was developed slowly and with great thought about how people deal with everything life throws at you and still have faith.
