First off, this is a re-read for me. I devour Becky Wade’s books as soon as they are released. I have now re-read 3 of her books just in the last two weeks. My opinion of them has not changed. In fact, it’s grown. I love and love Wade’s strong spiritual element she so boldly proclaims in her books. This book is in her Porter Family series and is youngest sibling Dru’s story. I highly recommend them!
About The Book:
2017 Christy Award Winner
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?
About Becky Wade
Becky is the Carol and Christy award winning author of heartwarming, humorous, and swoon-worthy contemporary inspirational romances.
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.
These days, you’ll find Becky in Dallas, Texas failing to keep up with her housework, trying her best in yoga class, carting her three kids around town, watching TV with her Cavalier spaniel on her lap, hunched over her computer writing, or eating chocolate.
My Rating: Still 5 Stars!
This book was outstanding! Becky Wade’s very first book made me aware that she was an author I wanted on my favorites list. I still feel that same way.
This book concludes Wade’s ‘Porter Family’ series, which includes 4 books. I am not ashamed to say that I’m sorry to see it come to an end. This family has surely grown on me.
We do get to catch up with the family members from previous books, which was an absolute delight and have a super surprise from one set. Oh, how I loved it.
Becky Wade has a knack for creating characters that are real and believable to the reader. They have real problems and real emotions. In fact, she plumbs the emotional depth of these folks she writes about. I find myself in tears reading her books, almost wanting to pray for these people!
Dru Porter and Gray Fowler captured my interest and didn’t let go till the very end of the book. I think I know why Becky Wade saved the only girl in the Porter siblings for last. Dru Porter was a great character. Loved this book and the interaction between the two was perfect and the romance was perfect.
However, what draws me in about Becky’s books is the spiritual depth that she includes. She is not afraid to stand strong on the Gospel of Christ and His work in the lives of believers. This is of great importance to me. The spiritual theme she weaves through her books is powerful and amazing. This one ministered to me in a situation I’ve been facing, in fact.
I am excited to read her new series. I only wish it was right now!
*I was provided a copy of this book through Net Galley in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.
August 28, 2019. Just finished a reread of this book and it’s just as good the second time around! Becky Wade does not disappoint. I even highlighted new passages this go round!
Becky includes some seriously great spiritual content in her books. This one reflected back on the previous siblings and especially Meg and Bo Porter’s struggles in having a child. God is powerful in these pages.
