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.
Becky Wade is a native of California who attended Baylor University, met and married a Texan, and now lives in Dallas. A favorite among readers of Christian contemporary romance, Becky has won a Carol Award, an Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award, and an INSPY Award.
My Take: This was a really pleasant read that had you wondering what would happen next because Becky Wade had it start with a sort of cliff hanger. I adored the give and take between Dru and Gray. I loved how Gray's life started to change for the better because of his relationship with Dru and how he would remember something she said that got him to thinking. I had several people that could have been the stalker in my mind but it wasn't any of the people that I thought it might be. I liked how Becky Wade had us reading another story line about one of the other Porter couples along with the main storyline. It maid the whole book richer somehow. I gave this book a 5 out of 5 stars. Enjoyed it very much.
I was sent a copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for an honest review.
