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?
Dru and Gray. Their perfect for each other. Or at least that’s what I think, but will they figure it out?
Gray is a famous football player for the Dallas Mustangs. He’s also known to be a player off the field and has a long line of ex-girlfriends. So when he begins receiving threatening letters he believes it to be one of them. His management doesn’t take it as lightly and hires Sutton Security for his protection.
Dru Porter, a former Marine, is now part of his detail. They, of course, do not get along very well in the beginning. He is cocky, and entitled. While Dru is also cocky but all business. They could not possibly be more different. That is unitl a couple of weeks have passed with them being together daily.
While Dru is posing as Gray’s girlfriend she is also targeted by his stalker. Gray, for some reason he doesn’t understand, is more worried for her safety than his own. During their time together they strike up a friendship and Dru finds herself falling for ‘Big Football Player.’ So much so, that she takes herself off his detail so they can actually date.
One night while Dru and Gray are leaving a restaurant she spots a vehicle that looks just like the believed stalkers. Now you know she goes looking for him, what else could she do?! So she goes out the back door of a nearby coffee shop in the strip and works her way back towards the parking lot. Then Gray comes searching for her, yelling her name as he makes it into the ally. A man steps out from the shadows and starts toward Gray. Dru, who is behind the man, takes off running to catch the stalker before he gets to Gray. After a struggle the man is in cuffs and arrested. Finally the stalker is out of Gray’s life.
Dru and Gray continue to date. She has learned a lot about why he is the way he is and is prepared to wait for him to trust her. Until she runs into Corbin, a friend and teammate of Gray’s, at the coffee shop she as she was waiting to meet with Gray for a date. Corbin lets it slip about the met he and Gray had made. When Gray walks in Dru had to know the truth. It crushed her and she didn’t know what to do about the relationship. She was in love with Gray but he didn’t want anything serious. So now, they are no longer together 😦
A couple of weeks later Gray is scheduled to speak at a fundraiser Dru had previously agreed to bring a friend to. And thankfully so….
While Gray was on stage Dru was being Dru. Surveying the area, picking out the biggest threats. That’s when she seen him. He was a long ways from home wearing an oversized camo jacket with heavy pockets. She knew he shouldn’t be there. That’s when he pulled something out of each pocket. Dru was now on the move..
While passing a security guard playing on his phone, she snatches his gun and trains it on her target. He leaves one pistol trained on Gray but moves the other towards Dru. Three bangs later the man is being tackled by Dru’s brother and Gray is standing over her.
Let me just say, I wish I’d have read this whole series. All the characters are so strong and fascinating. Her One and Only also revisits the characters from the first three book. Now when I read them I’ll be backwards. But trust me, this family is worth it! Becky Wade brings them to life and keeps you wanting to turn page after page. Although Her One and Only is part of the Porter Family Novels, it is also a great stand alone. I truly enjoyed this book, and cant wait to read the others.
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Baker Publishing in exchange for an honest review. These thoughts and opinions are all mine.
