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. 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.
Rating: ★★★★★ (5 out of 5 stars)
Dru Porter is the youngest of the Porter clan, and has always felt like she had something to prove with her three big brothers. After a fairly wild youth, she joined the Marines, worked towards a black belt in jui-jitsu, and can shoot a target with perfect precision. But even with all the training, she couldn’t have prepared for the disaster of her last assignment as an executive protection agent. Again, she feels like she has something to prove to her agency with her latest client- NFL star Gray Fowler. Gray has a stalker, which is not out of the ordinary for him, but this time the threat is frighteningly real. When a gorgeous, feisty Dru is assigned as his newest bodyguard, he doesn’t know how to take it exactly. Especially when their sarcastic banter soon turns to real feelings for one another. But Dru is determined to remain detached for her job (and heart’s) sake, and Gray doesn’t know how to let anyone in seriously due to a rough childhood. But as the danger rises and Gray’s stalker escalates to threatening to kill them both, they soon realize that the feelings they keep fighting might be the one thing that can get them through.As I’ve come to expect from this author, Her One and Only is an example of a story that is simply a gift to its reader. Beautifully genuine, heartrendingly raw, and a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, it delivers a poignant tale of a man and woman both afraid to love but willing to risk everything for each other…it had me both in tears at the frighteningly palpable emotions it emerged in me and giggling at the pure cuteness of Dru, Gray, and the whole Porter family I’ve come to know and love. I am in awe of how much one story can remind me of why I love reading so much in the first place. It checked all the boxes – Her One and Only immediately engaged me with honest-to-goodness characters and a nail-biting plotline (it literally starts with a bang due to the first chapters glimpse of the story’s future), gave me ALL THE FEELS with sizzling chemistry between Dru and Gray yet still was a clean romance, held some mystery with an ending I never would’ve guessed, and taught me a lesson about the power of letting go of the ugly past and allowing faith, forgiveness, and love to take it’s place.
If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m pretty passionate about my love for this extraordinary series. This is a must-read for anyone who delights in contemporary romance. Though a satisfying conclusion to the Porter Family series, it will be one of the rare series that I anticipate re-reading over and over again. In closing, a beautiful story awaits you in Her One and Only!
