As an executive protective agent, Dru Porter is always putting her life in danger in order to protect her clients. But when she meets Gray Fowler, a Texas Mustangs football player, and is told she has to protect him, she learns a new level of care and concern for her clients. Gray is cocky, a womanizer, and appears to be very shallow. But the more the gets to know him, the more Dru realizes he has a deeper side of him that no one ever gets to see.
Gray has a stalker who is sending letters that at first seem non-violent, but when Dru arrives on the scene and plays the part of his “girlfriend”, the threats escalate and threaten not only Gray but Dru as well. When Dru is threatened, Gray begins to realize that he has more feelings for her than he wanted to admit at the start. He’s falling for her but doesn’t know what to do with it.
After going with Gray to visit his mom in his home town, Dru realizes she, too, has feelings for Gray. Feelings that go beyond the professional ethics that she has always had in place. Knowing she’s crossed a line, Dru removes herself from Gray’s case and steps away from his protective detail. Although they are now a couple and taking their relationship to the next level, Dru is still protecting Gray by watching the crowds for his stalker. When the day finally comes where Gray’s stalker makes a play, Dru is there to take him down.
Her One and Only is the first Becky Wade book I’ve read…odd to start on the fourth book in a series, I know. Ha! While many series books *must* be read in order for the reader to fully understand the story line, this is not true of Wade’s book. I could tell there were parts of the story that were being “filled in” by the author but she did it so well that I didn’t feel as though I was missing anything. What it made me do, though, is want to go back and read all the other books too! Her One and Only might have the standard plot (I actually figured out who the stalker was before it was revealed) but it was such an enjoyable read that I didn’t mind. Her One and Only is the kind of book that you enjoy reading after a long day of stress when you want to lose yourself in a good happy-ending story!
