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

Dru is quite a bit different than your usual gal but you can't help but like her. She is tough and strong but with just the right amount of heart and vulnerability. And Gray, you will find him very easy to root for! I liked their chemistry, the banter and tension between them practically leapt off the page! Don't take that the wrong way, because this was a clean read, unless you can't handle some steamy kisses (wink).
Wade had a theme woven throughout this novel, of letting go and trusting God. The truths she brought the characters to and through felt very organic to both their character and the story. And this was true with both Dru and Gray, as well as the secondary story of Meg and Bo (told from Meg's perspective). While I like Meg and Bo, and I enjoyed getting to visit with them again, I have to say that I sort of wish their story would have been told in a separate novella. Meg's parts would pop up right after a key point in Dru/Gray's story and I really just wanted to stick with the main story. I found myself skimming through Meg's parts more often than not, in order to get back to the main storyline. I will say that I did enjoy seeing how things wrapped up for Meg and Bo at the end. However, Dru and Gray's story was definitely the one that had me on the edge of my seat and giddy to see how it would end.
Overall, a highly enjoyable novel and a wonderful wrap up to the series!
This book is a cute, enjoyable read that keeps you guessing until the very end. I absolutely loved the banter and chemistry between Dru and Gray. The pacing was great.
The sub-story with Meg did feel a little bit unnecessary for the storyline, but since this book is part of a series, I can understand why it was included. Because I didn't read the book about Meg's story prior to this one, though, I wasn't invested in or really interested in her character at all because she didn't feel connected to the plot for this book.
That said, this is the second book I've enjoyed by Becky Wade this month and I'm already looking forward to the next.
The original storyline of a big rough and tough football player who's being stalked, guarded by a slim and small "protection agent" woman is unique. But all is not as it seems, she's a former Marine, highly qualified for her job. He's big and muscled, but dealing with issues from his past that give him a tender side.
From the start, the personal attraction and chemistry between Dru and Gray had enough tension and heat to singe the page, and it only got better. I loved their witty banter, her not giving an inch during all his flirtatious advances and him enjoying the challenge of trying to win her over. The story had a great balance between the search for Gray's mysterious stalker and his pursuit of Dru. Their comical exchanges were laugh-out-loud funny and I found myself highlighting them to go back and read again.
Both Grey and Dru had issues from the past to overcome to be able to move forward with their relationship. He had to deal with issues of family dysfunction, abuse and neglect, bitterness and forgiveness and ultimately believing he was worthy of love and capable of loving. Dru had to deal with her competitive streak that first began with her older brothers, her constant striving to be good enough, tough enough and acceptance of who she was after turning her life over to God. Alcohol also played a role in both their pasts, some may take exception to this in a Christian story, but I found it to be refreshingly accurate to modern day challenges, just as physical involvement before marriage also is a temptation. Wade did an excellent job of honestly portraying both.
I loved they had funny nicknames for each other, he called her Revengeress, a comic book superhero name and she called him Big Football Player. Add in the addition of Corbin, his football team friend and competition for Dru's first kiss and Ashley, his cook and housekeeper, along with appearances by Bo, Ty, Jake and their wives and it's an all-star cast of great characters. And that first kiss! and all those that followed, wow, just wow!
Her One and Only is touching, it's emotional, it's funny, it's charming and it leads a reader towards faith in God. I was thrilled to read it, staying up until 2:00 o'clock in the morning to finish it and it was so worth it!
Dru and Gray's story, the final Porter sibling book, is a swoon-worthy ending to an outstanding family series. Wade's Porter family series is now in my all time favorite trifecta of inspirational family sagas, along with Susan May Warren's Christiansen series and Dani Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series. That's good company to be in. These three series provide some of the most entertaining reading hours I've ever enjoyed.
I'm not sure what Becky Wade's next book will be, but this much I do know, it will be an automatic buy for me.
