From the Publisher:
Carrie Mays knows that to whom much is given much is required. That's why she has to figure out what to do with the large inheritance she's about to receive. She doesn't want people to look at her and see dollar signs; she just wants to be loved for being Carrie. But when she is rejected because of her money, she doesn't like that either. She has to surrender to the Lord and allow Him to bring her all that she needs. Rocky Wilder has always dreamed of having money. But now that he is a Christian all he wants is to follow the path the Lord has a laid out for him, and it looks like that's becoming a landscaper. But he needs the funds to get his business up and going. Can he find a way to follow the Lord and not hurt people along the way? Has Rocky really changed, or is he still that Wilder boy?
This was a cool "Cinderella" type story, only in reverse. Carrie was not poor like the real Cinderella, but had the opposite problem. She was beautiful and rich. Plus, she was tired of being used. Her parents thought money was everything, so she almost despised it.
So when she met Rocky she thought she'd finally found someone who would see her for who she really was despite the trust fund. Rocky made a whole lot of mistakes and got himself in a pickle several times that I wondered if he could even get out of. But inside he was a great guy despite his humble dwelling, yet super-hunky bod. Rocky seemed like the ultimate hero.
At any rate, I enjoyed this love story. It held my interest through to the end, and that's all it takes for me to enjoy a book. This is the first novel I've read by Kim Vogel Sawyer. Now I'm thinking I'll be reading several more.
That Wilder Boy was published by Heartsong and released in August 2006.
