Her One and Only by Becky Wade {Review}

Her One and Only by Becky Wade
Kindle Edition, 400 pages
Expected publication: April 26th 2016 by Bethany House Publishers
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?
My Review: 5 Stars
This story is the finale of a series about a family and I would recommend reading the others first, as the brothers make appearances throughout this book and things will make more sense.
Hot, hot, sizzling hot chemistry! I love a book with a spunky heroine and a hunky leading man. Dru is a determined woman, one who has definitely sowed her wild oats and is now fierce, loyal, and tough. As an executive protection agent, she takes her job seriously and is committed to find out who is stalking and threatening NFL superstar, Gray. Gray has risen up from a tumultuous background and has worked his way into being one of the best football players around. He doesn't seem to have a care in the world and isn't serious about anything--especially woman. As time goes by, the sparks and undeniable attraction leaps off of the pages and leaves the reader thoroughly engrossed in the suspense, the danger, the mystery, and the romance.
Dru is definitely intimidating, but I admire her. I like her solid front--what you see is what you get with her. Gray is a womanizer who seems to have it all. His past has absolutely shaped who he is and how he reacts to life and once I was able to see a few layers peeled off, I couldn't help but to adore him. I love characters with depth.  
I love the ebb and flow of the story line. There are tender moments mixed with heart pounding suspense and the pacing is great! Her One and Only is full of heart, forgiveness, emotion, and love. Ms. Wade has outdone herself with this one!

Content: mild romance (kissing, implications of former intimate relationships); moderate religious elements, as God plays a role in the characters' lives, but nothing is preachy; mild violence and moments of peril. Clean!

About the Author:

Becky WadeDuring her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.
Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances with Avon Books, then put her career on hold for several years to care for her three kids, then recently returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She felt led to move to the genre of contemporary Christian romance and couldn’t be more thrilled with it.
These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
