Book Review: Her One And Only

24 Jun

51iHOt9zJdL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_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?



Becky-Wade4Becky Wade is a California native who attended Baylor University, met and married a Texan, and settled in Dallas. She published historical romances for the general market before putting her career on hold for several years to care for her three children. When God called her back to writing, Becky knew He meant for her to turn her attention to Christian fiction. She loves writing funny, modern, and inspirational contemporary romance! She’s the Carol Award, INSPY Award, and Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award winning author of My Stubborn Heart, Undeniably Yours, Meant to Be Mine, A Love Like Ours, and Her One and Only.


My Impressions:

Sparks fly in Becky Wade’s newest offering in the Porter Family series. In Her One And Only, big football player Gray Fowler and tough-as-nails Dru Porter elude stalkers and dodge bullets as they resist pulse-raising chemistry. A good choice for a football widow looking for reading material during the season, I wouldn’t really wait until August to read this book. This is romance with a touch of suspense at its finest. I loved this one and am betting that you will too!

There is much to love in Her One And Only. Witty banter between the main characters kept me smiling. The unconventional characters — a female executive protective agent assigned to protect an NFL football player? – were refreshing. I loved how Dru and Gray challenged each other emotionally and spiritually as they fought against their attraction. I also loved the secondary characters and got a kick out of the additional flavor they added to the story. The romance was sweet and spicy and kept this reader wanting more. Becky didn’t stint on the plot either, adding enough suspense to keep the characters and the reader on her toes. Complex issues of faith, trust and forgiveness in light of past experiences and bad choices are dealt with naturally. And if you are a fan of Becky’s previous books in this series, you will be pleased with the way she wove Bo and Meg, Ty and Celia and Jake and Lyndie’s stories into the narrative.

If you haven’t read any of the other books in this series, rest assured Her One And Only can be read as a standalone. But I bet once you read it you will want to find out just what you missed in the other novels. And why all the betting? You’ll just have to read Her One And Only to find out!

Highly Recommended.

    I recently read this title and loved it! After reading books #3 (A Love Like Ours) and #4, I’m definitely planning to read books #1 and #2 to see how the story began!

      I’ve read one other in the series too. Seeing the happily-ever-afters in this book certainly makes me want to return to the beginnings. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Have a great weekend!
