Well, let me tell you when I finished the first few sentences of ALL THAT MATTERS, it became all that mattered. I couldn't put this story down. From the first page Buddy Lee and Faith's story captured my heart. By the end of chapter one, I admit I had more than a slight crush on Buddy Lee. This charming man was pure in heart and the more I learned about him the more I rooted for him to get what he wanted. Faith's love.
Without giving away too much, because I want you to enjoy the story the way I did, feel the emotions and the triumphs and the frustration, I will share a little bit.
Buddy Lee showed his courage in overcoming a shame-filled past brought on him by his father. He worked hard and lived by a moral code of ethics, though not everybody realized this. As for Faith, I was instantly drawn to her for all that she'd gone through. Her plight in dealing with an overbearing father and how she was made to feel she needed to act a certain way because she belonged to the upper class of their small town...it broke my heart. Together this pair formed an unlikely friendship...good girl meets town bad boy. But Buddy Lee proves he isn't a bad boy when he rescues Faith time and time again from the situations she finds herself in. He takes the blame with no thought to how it makes him appear to others, his only concern is his friend. Faith.Read more ›

She ask for his help and Buddy has no idea what he is in for ! After agreeing to help Faith his life is anything but quiet. He finds himself married and once again with the ugly title of "Boyd's Boy".
This was an excellent read ! I feel in love with Faith and Buddy right away. This book reminded me of the Robyn Carr's books. A good love story with lots of little twist !
All That Matters is fun, romantic, sad,tragic, and suspensful all wrapped up into one good read. The reader immediately learns to love the characters Buddy Lee and Faith and the situation they have found themselves in. And they are drawn into the suspense and mystery that centers around a death.
The story moves quickly and can easily be read in a weekend making it a good choice for those with little time to sit and read. There are a couple of intimate scenes between Buddy Lee and Faith that are done in good taste within the scope of true love but I would still warn the reader that it wouldn't be appropriate for teens or those uncomfortable reading scenes with sexual content.
The mystery and suspense is good, the story line keeps the reader caring about what will happen, and the ending has its own twist and turn. All in all a very good story.
Faith was just searching for someone to love her.
All the money in the world can't buy love.
All the wanting in the world can't give you,love unless show them
Buddy has loved Faith since they were kids Faith didn't realize
that Buddy was the one who could truly love her
Read a great little romance story that takes you on a little twisted journey
that shows you what being in love can do
