Romance Fans Eagerly Anticipate Every New Release from Becky Wade
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?
Becky Wade just writes some of the best contemporary romance novels. Here’s my thoughts on this one:
What I liked:
Dru. I’ve been looking forward to reading her book since the first novel in this series. I loved that a woman was “the muscle.” I loved that she was an ex-Marine and a bodyguard. It really gave the novel a different vibe. Dru has a past (usually attributed to a male in a novel) but she’s overcome it. Let’s just say I loved being in her head.
Gray. He was a funny guy and while he had his problems, it was easy to see why it was that Dru fell for him. I really liked the whole sports aspect and kind of wonder if Ms. Wade will continue a series with these guys.
Chemistry. I thought the chemistry before Dru and Gray was on point. They had enough differences that it kept the romance fresh and interesting.
Suspense. It was kind of a mystery, but felt more suspense and definitely kept me guessing!
The old gang. Meg and Bo really get a lot of face time in this book and it was just great to be in their story again.
Spiritually, the novel deals with what it means to live like you’re free. How a relationship with God should mean that you should live differently.
What I didn’t like:
I didn’t care for the missionary dating that went on in this book. Of course everything works out in the end, but people’s beliefs don’t usually change because of romance.
Romantic scale: 8
Overall, very enjoyable and I’m sad that this concludes this series.
