About the book:
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.
I absolutely loved this book! I'd been looking forward to this book ever since we first met Dru back in book one and it did not disappoint! Dru was such a fun, spunky character and I loved the witty banter between her and Gray. You don't often see such a strong female character physically, in that she can beat up pretty much anyone, while also having a strong personality. The element of suspense was great and it was interesting to see Dru try to figure out who Gray's stalker was. The spiritual conversations were wonderful and told important truths, such as we can only find meaning in God, that everything else is hollow. I really enjoyed the emotional and spiritual journey Gray took as he realized he needed to deal with his past in order to move forward. Learning to trust and forgive were two major themes in the story. There were some nice romantic moments. I have to say the man they chose for the cover did not fit the description, which bothered me. I'm really sad to see the Porters go as this is the last book in the series. It works well as a stand-alone, but you get so much more out of the book if you've read the other stories about her siblings. I highly recommend it and the rest of the series!
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
