Her One and Only {Becky Wade}

her one and only 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 markswoman, 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? 

My Thoughts:
If you let God in, He can truly change your heart. That amazing theme is the cornerstone of this final book in the Porter family series.

Dru is the little sister of the Porter clan. She has lived the wild and crazy life, and she has experienced the hurt that comes along with it. She has returned to Dallas trusting God and determined to live her life in the way He has laid out.

Dru’s newest client is pro football superstar, Grey. Grey is your typical athlete playboy but has apparently made someone made enough to send threats his way. Dru and her team have been assigned to protect Grey and keep him alive. Only Dru finds she cares about Grey in ways beyond being a member of his protection detail.

Dru finds herself struggling between the choices she knows God would want her to make and the feelings she has for Grey. But she is determined not to fall for Grey if he is not right with God.

And then we get to see God work in Grey’s life in a way that only He can. We get to see him remove the desires for temptation and replace them with a heart longing to live for God and love in the way He wants us to love. We get to see God do spectacular things.

With this being the conclusion of the Porter family series, we also get to wrap up some story lines from previous books and catch up with the Porter brothers and their families. It is a bittersweet ending to such an amazing series. We are all going to miss the Porter family.

During 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 three 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.
