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?
Her One and Only is the fourth book in the Porter Family series. I have only read the second book, but this one did well as a stand alone. There were references to things that happened to Dru previous to this book, but it ended up being explained so I didn't really feel like I missed anything. Dru is the youngest of the siblings. She is a former marine and is now a bodyguard assigned to protect Gray, a NFL football player.
I thought this was a cute love story between the two. I liked the banter between Dru and Gray and they had great chemistry. Gray comes from a troubled background and has made himself into a success story in the NFL. It was really fun to watch these two fall for each other. I also thought there was a good solid mystery in the story, so that made it more enjoyable to read.
The whole family take a prominent role in this book. This one takes place years after the events in the second book. It was nice to catch up with everyone. I enjoyed Meg and Bo's pregnancy story almost as much as the main story. Their scene in the end with the babies made me tear up.
I definitely recommend this series. I liked Ms. Wade's writing style and look forward to reading more from her in the future!
