Becky Wade: Her One and Only

By Kelly Bridgewater

Gray Fowler, star NFL tight end, is being pursued by a stalker, so his team hires a protection agency to keep Gray under the watch of a bodyguard at all times. When Gray meets Dru Porter, an agent assigned to him, he's indignant. How can an attractive young female half his size possibly protect him?

But Dru's a former Marine, an expert markswoman, and a black belt. She's also ferociously determined to uncover the identity of Gray's stalker. And she's just as determined to avoid any kind of romantic attachment between herself and the rugged football player with the mysterious past. But the closer they get to finding the stalker, the closer they grow to each other. As the danger rises, can Dru and Gray entrust their hearts--and their lives--to one another?

My Thoughts:

Becky Wade finally got around to telling Dru Porter's story in Her One and Only. I got to say that I really enjoyed it. From the first chapter where Dru is introduced to Gray, which by the way for the majority of the book, I kept reading Gary, I was intrigued by her spunkiness and her ability to do a man's job and do it well. As for Gray, I enjoyed how Wade takes a long time to peel back his layers to his inner struggles. She didn't force his dark moment on me in the first sentence. I had to follow Gray and stay with him to figure it all out. The romance was long coming, even though I knew how the love between Dru and Gray would end up. I mean, come on, it is a contemporary romance. The overarching theme of learning to let go of the past rang through both Dru and Gary. In order for them to move on and love each other, they needed to let go of some past issues. I really enjoyed the mystery element of having someone wanting to harm Gray. It sparked my interest and made me want to find out who was threatening him. Overall, Becky Wade's conclusion to her Porter series is a gripping read with a predictable love ending, but I loved spending time with Dru and Gray to watch their story unfold on the pages.

I received a complimentary copy of Her One and Only from Bethany House and the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I really enjoy stories that tell a continuing family saga, like Wade's Porter series, where I see the same siblings reappear in a future novel. Do you? Why or Why not?
