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.
Praise for Her One and Only
"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

Her One and Only closes out Wade's Porter family series and I must say, I wish I had read the series in order. And not because I was completely lost (this can be considered stand-alone-ish), but because I missed out on getting to know the rest of the Porter clan. Dru, being the youngest and only girl of the Porter siblings, has something to prove. Gray Fowler, on the other hand, is a NFL superstar. Dru becomes Gray's bodyguard, oh I'm sorry, Executive Protection Agent after a series of threatening letters are sent to him, each one more serious than the last.

The banter between Dru and Gray is believable, as are Dru's family and Gray's friends. Being a christian romance, I was pleasantly surprised by the the way Wade set the tone. But I have to be honest here. The main reason why I loved this book? Dru Porter. Strong and resourceful, she is character that I admired from the get-go and continued to grow as I read the book. I would like to see a short story collection of Dru's other clients. Wade's writing is great, it's balanced throughout the entire book. I would definitely recommend this series to patrons and personal friends alike. I myself will be going back and reading the series from book one, Undeniably Yours

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
