After ten years in the NFL, super star 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.
My Review: I'm a Becky Wade fan and have really enjoyed getting to know the Porter family featured in her books. So it was nice to finally get to know the little sister in this final book in the series.
This story was a little different from the previous stories in the Porter Family Saga as there was an element of suspense included. Becky carried this well and gave lots of details for how someone covering someone in security would work.
As far as the characters I thought Dru was written so well as an overachieving, cold, professional that I had a hard time warming up to her all the way to the end. Her demeanor was such that I couldn't picture Gray going for her. Gray on the other hand started out as a chauvinistic schmuck and I thought what in the world could Dru see in him! But he thawed earlier on and then I thought what could he see in Dru!
Now unlike the other books where there is drama and suspense with this one I had no idea who the culprit was until it was revealed. That was pretty good because usually I can sniff them out. I did like this addition to the story and it helped things along.
The setting for this story was mostly on Dru and Gray's stomping grounds but we did get to reconnect with former cast members at a few family gatherings. It was nice to see families growing and an interesting storyline that really hit home with me concerning Meg and Bo (she's pregnant).
As interesting as Her One and Only was I didn't love this finale. I found myself far more interested in the Meg storyline than Dru and Gray's. I think it was the unlikeable characters in the beginning and the move into suspense, which I generally like, but was not in the previous Porter Family books.
For Christian elements. Grey does have a come to Jesus moment and Dru has been attending biker church with her interesting neighbor.
If you've read the others in the Porter Family Series of course you're going to want to follow up.
