After ten years in the NFL, superstar 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.
My thoughts and giveaway:
This is the final book of the Porter series and Becky has done a great job of wrapping everything up. Not only do we get to hear Dru’s story but we meet up with all the other Porter’s who we have met previously and get to see what is going on.
With that being said, have no fear if you haven’t had a chance to read the other books, Becky works everything in so new readers won’t be confused.
Dru is one tough lady and Gray isn’t used to dealing with woman who don’t fall all over him. What I loved about this book was how Becky made this romance a slow burn. With her other books (which I loved) there was a quick burn, a lot of heat from the get-go but not so with this one. The romance in this one takes more time but it’s never dull.
Gray has some major wounds from his past and these are slowly revealed, just enough to satisfy but not too fast that the suspense is over.
I honestly had to keep reminding myself this was a romance book and not a romantic suspense but it definitely has those elements.
Overall, another great book by Becky Wade.
