Her One and Only - Becky Wade
Dru Porter is the youngest of the Porter siblings, and as the only girl, has spent her whole life trying to keep up and prove herself. She has served in the Marines, she rides a motorcycle, and now she is a bodyguard. Er..."Executive Protection Agent." Her newest client is Gray Fowler, a tight end for the Dallas Mustangs, and she is tasked with keeping him safe from a stalker who seems to be escalating his threats. Dru has vowed to not get personally attached to her clients, but Gray might have other plans.
I have really enjoyed the Porter Family Series; Ty, Jake, and Bo were characters bigger than life, with family bonds and romantic storylines that made for light-hearted, fun reading. Dru's story didn't feel quite as fleshed out, leaving me feeling like I didn't really know her. I enjoyed her interactions with Gray, and I thought that his story of needing to learn about forgiveness and about his relationship with God was well done. I just wanted to know Dru as well as I felt I knew the Porter brothers. The scenes with her family, as well as the intertwined story of Meg and Bo, were some of the most engaging in the book. Seeing her among her family helped define her, and gave warmth to the coldness of her persona as a bodyguard. I wish that there was a way for the author to tie these characters into future books so that we didn't have to let go of them yet!
I was excited to receive this book, and I did enjoy it; I just wanted to know Dru more!
I give this book 3.5 stars. Within the series, I felt the least invested in this installment, but I was still glad to catch up with the Porter family.

I received a copy of this e-book from Bethany House, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
