About Her One and Only

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 marks-woman, 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?

 

About the Author:

Becky Wade AuthorDuring 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 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.

My Thoughts on Her One and Only

Her One and Only is the perfect ending to an amazing series and I’m sad it’s over!

This is the fourth book in the Porter family series and we finally get Dru’s story. Dru made only a few appearances in the previous books, but she came across as a pain in the neck that couldn’t keep herself out of trouble. Now she’s a grown up pain in the neck that can’t keep herself out of trouble. She’s fierce, competitive, and as tough as nails. She has a softer side that we get to see every now and then, but I love the way she is unapologetically herself. She doesn’t try to be something she’s not.

Gray’s mysterious past eats at him and drives him to behave in a way that keeps himself isolated from meaningful relationships with anyone. As he and Dru get to know each other better, both of their walls start to come down. It’s not easy hurdling those walls, and it takes a lot of suspense, danger, and self-reflection to topple them completely.

Becky Wade’s characters are so alive, they feel like real people. She doesn’t write perfect characters, she writes REAL characters. They all have pasts, made mistakes, and work toward becoming better people. I love the relationships in this book and the way Gray and Dru fit together perfectly. They’re both difficult to handle, but that’s why they’re such a good match.

If you like clean romance with awesome characters (especially kick-butt women), read this book. It can be read as a stand-alone novel, but I recommend reading the entire series, if only for the pure delight of spending more time in small town Texas with some great romances.

Content: Some drinking, violence, and mentions of sex (discussion on the value of boundaries and waiting for marriage).

Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Aww, it’s always a shame when a series you’ve come to love so much comes to an end! I’m glad you could head over heels love this novel and enjoy the characters. I’m a character driven reader so knowing that they really do come to life here makes me want to try this one!

      It is sad. 🙁

      But on the bright side, she’ll be writing new books, so I have something to look forward to.
