Spring Reads: Her One and Only


Bethany House; 400 pages; Buy Link; Blog Tour
Now available to buy in bookstores from Bethany House Publishing is the latest novel by Becky Wade, titled Her One and Only.

The novel centers on center on the NFL superstar Gray Fowler, who has been receiving death threats from a obsessed stalker, which results in him hiring a protection agency to protect him. Unfortunately, this means he must deal with bodyguards 24/7, and he has to practically put his entire life on hold until the stalker is caught.

This brings in the beautiful, former Marine Dru Porter as one of Gray's bodyguards. She has a black belt and is an expert with a gun, but her faith is lacking ever since her last mission turned into a disaster. Now she is trying to pick up the pieces and somehow save her career.

The last thing that neither Gray or Dru were looking for was a romance, but as they spend more time with each the other, the more the sparks fly. Yes, this causes a bit of a problem as Dru isn't allowed to develop a relationship with her clients.

Final Thoughts: While this is the fourth entry in the Porter Family series, it's a standalone story, so you don't have to read the other books prior to Her One and Only. I've read a few of the author's other works, so I was looking forward to reading this one.

Unlike most Christian romances where the man arrives to protect the woman, it is reversed for this story with the main character, Gray, being protected by Dru the bodyguard. This premise works well here; giving a breath of fresh air to the genre.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Her One and Only. The plot was well-written and the characters are likeable, which is all I need for a good romance read.
