Description of Her One and Only

After ten years in the NFL, super star Gray Fowler is accustomed to obsessive fans. But when Gray starts receiving death threats from a stalker, his team hires an executive protection agency to guard him until the culprit is caught. Dealing with bodyguards 24/7 is a headache, especially when one of them is a young, beautiful woman. How can a female half his size possibly protect him better than he can protect himself?

Dru Porter is a former Marine, an expert markswoman, and a black belt–none of which saved her from disaster on her last assignment. In order to rebuild her tarnished reputation, she’s determined to find Gray’s stalker and, since relationships between agents and clients are forbidden, avoid a romantic attachment between herself and the rugged football player with the mysterious past.

Yet every secret that leads Dru closer to the stalker also draws her closer to Gray. As the danger escalates, they’ll survive only if they can learn to trust their lives — and their hearts — to one another.


My review of Her One and Only

This is the first book I’ve read in the Porter Family Series. This was the fourth and last book in the series. I know I missed all the history of the other Porter family members, but it didn’t take away from Dru and Gray’s story. All the other members of the family are included in this book and there is a conclusion to Bo and Meg’s story as well.

I like Becky Wade’s style of writing. I love her characters, so much so that I will go back and read the first three books in this series. I loved the interaction between Dru and her brothers. I have three brothers myself, so I can sympathize with her.

Small town, close knit family, romance and suspense….this novel checked off all the boxes for me. It was an unexpected twist that Dru was a bodyguard to an NFL player. You don’t usually see the female in the role of a protector. It made for interesting reading.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I hope you’ll give it a try.
