Romance Fans Eagerly Anticipate Every New Release from Becky Wade
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 newest book by Becky Wade. Gosh there were so many components to this book. I almost don’t know where to start. So we start with the basics.
Since, Her One and Only is the final book in The Porter Family Series. Having read most of the series I wanted so badly to like this book. I did for the most part but there were some things that just, well, left me wanting about this book.
First I liked Dru and Gray. This was an unconventional love story. They both had pasts that they had to reconcile with Jesus (or as Dru said “have their come to Jesus moments”). But it wasn’t an instantaneous change, it was a slow progress. There is a decent amount of sexual tension in the book as well as Dru “admiring” Gray body often. Even Dru wondered what they had in common. So I will say part of me was wondering …. will it last?
I liked catching up with Bo and Meg. That was really nice seeing how all the other Porters were doing. But the insert of Bo and Meg’s story did make the book seem long at times. The two stories didn’t really flow well together.
Overall it was suspenseful. It was interesting to see how the darker plot unfolded. Becky Wade is a good writer, but as I have said before contemporary Christian fiction has to be one of the hardest things to write. If you like the contemporary romance then you should read this book, just know it doesn’t shy away from the hard stuff. But it also isn’t very deep in the faith department either.
