Dru Porter is a former Marine and continues to maintain her skills with a black belt and frequent trips to the shooting range. She is hired as a bodyguard for Gray Fowler, a superstar football player who has absolutely no desire for the dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty to be his protector. Dru, however, takes her job seriously and is determined to find Gray’s stalker, hoping to keep him from harm and prove herself after a disaster on her last case. Despite her best effort, however, Dru finds herself drawn to the football player, a romance she knows is off-limits, given her job. But perhaps getting closer is the only way to protect Gray and keep the stalker from reaching him first.
I absolutely love all of Becky Wade’s books. She is a fantastic writer and pens characters that are so relatable and with whom it is easy to connect. I really liked Dru in this novel; she is the perfect blend of a strong female character with bits of humility from realistic past failures sprinkled throughout. It was great to catch up with old friends from previous novels as well, although reading those first is not required to appreciate the novel. The spiritual themes and analogies in this book are once again written very well. This particular book also has a bit more suspense than her previous novels but still contains great scenes of romance. There is a special gift that some writers’ posses that immediately draw in the reader with their excellent language and prose; Becky Wade has this talent! I truly cannot say enough good things about her writing. Most highly recommended!
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
