Book Review: Her One and Only, by Becky Wade

From the Back Cover
“Filled with genuine emotion and overflowing with positive examples of faith, the story captures the imagination while warming the heart.”–Publishers Weekly starred review of A Love Like Ours

After ten years in the NFL, superstar 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

“Down-to-earth, in-depth characters give the story an authentic feel. Dru, being the youngest Porter, is headstrong and sympathetic, and when she matches wits with Gray, their connection is as electric as their budding romance is sweet. A delightful read.”–RT Book Reviews

“Inspirational-fiction fans can jump into the Porter world at any point and enjoy Wade’s tales of heart and spirit. This is a must-read for anyone testing the balance between autonomy and faith.”–Booklist

“Romance readers will find this a satisfying conclusion to the Porter Family series.”–Christian Retailers + Resources

My thoughts:

I was very excited to see Becky Wade’s book as one of my choices for doing a book review for Bethany House Publishers. Ever since I read “A Love Like Ours”, I became a Becky Wade fan. She has three books about the three Porter brothers, and this is the book about the little sister Dru.
Becky is a good writer and she kept me entertained from cover to cover. This was a suspense and romance combined and I didn’t want it to end.
I liked this line so much I actually stuck a sticky note in that page so I could quote it in my review.
Talking about Dru kissing Gray, “She only knew that it felt like a glorious storm–lightning and soft rain and sweet wind–caught in a bottle.” Wow.
So…go get Becky’s books. All. Of. Them. But especially Her One and Only. I just saw that it is on sale on Amazon. And…go.
I give this book 5 stars. Bethany House Publishers gave me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
