Recommends it for: Fans of inspirational, contemporary romance
Her One and Only takes the top spot for the books of Becky’s that I’ve read so far. The chemistry, the suspense and the spiritual aspect were all perfectly proportioned to make one stellar read. The pacing of the story is on point – there weren’t any lulls, nor was there ever a point that I wasn’t eager to pick it back up and continue reading.

At first, Dru Porter didn’t seem like she would be all that relatable of a character. She has a tough exterior, and frankly, didn’t seem like someone that

I must admit, it took me a long, LONG time to like hero Gray Fowler, but once he won me over... yowza!!! Gray and Dru fought tooth and nail -- often literally -- for their happily-ever-after! Wade delivers a sizzling romance and a bittersweet farewell to the Porter siblings and their extended families -- fans of Undeniably Yours will particularly love the subplot featuring Meg and Bo. Heck, even the racehorse gets a victory lap! A beautiful story of forgiveness, trust, the futility of human stri ...more

If Becky Wade ever decides she wants to write romantic suspense long-term, I’m all for it! What a great book!! The intrigue and suspense surrounding the plot point of Gray’s stalker added to the romantic tension that sizzled between Dru and Gray. The action scenes were full of energy and played out in my mind like something from tv’s Castle as I read them on the page. And the kisses. WHEW! Goodness gracious.

The relationship between Dru and Gray is full of delicious chemistry, entertaining banter

Nice to see Dru get her happy ending. I would recommend reading the other books about Dru's brothers first before reading this one. Meg & Bo play prominent roles in this story. Becky Wade is one of my favorite Christian fiction authors. I have loved this series.

The Porter Family series is one of my favorites in the contemporary genre! The characters are realistically flawed, yet their strengths help them overcome the trials they face. In the beginning of this book, I didn't relate to Dru and Gray at all, didn't even like them much... so it's a real indicator of the author's skill that I began to care about them and for them, and was emotionally involved enough by the end to shed a few tears. Details of Dru and Gray's pasts and personalities were reveal ...more
I really enjoyed this last book in the Porter series. The author does a great job of tying up the stories of all four of the Porter siblings. You get a glimpse into the lives of each of them and get a feel for how things are going for them since you last "saw" them when you read their stories. :)

Ha! I loved Dru's spunkiness! She is fierce and doesn't let her size or the fact that she's a lady keep her from knowing that she can bodyguard this huge NFL guy! :D Gray, on the other hand has a LOT of

What an amazingly perfect, yet very bittersweet (For all us fans!) ending to the Porter family series! I have been so looking forward to Dru's story ever since book one and I was not disappointed in the slightest! I loved both Dru and Gray (Becky Wade has crafted yet another utterly swoon-worthy hero!) I liked how God used Dru to help strengthen His relationship with Gray, and vice versa, always such a wonderful thing to see in a romance novel! I loved the banter between Dru and Gray, as well as ...more

Becky Wade has done it again! Her One and Only is another 5 star read. I really appreciated the fresh story line. It's not like any of the others. Yet it fits perfectly in The Porter family series. Dru's character has the perfect mix of an independence and fun-loving personality. The action throughout the story is believable. There is a little mystery and a lot of romance. I enjoyed the Porter family dynamics. Ty is still my favorite Porter sibling although I do not have a favorite book because ...more
It's been several days, since I finished reading this book, and I still have Dru and Gray on my mind. I miss reading about my literary friends. This entire series was great. I love that Becky Wade's stories are funny, real, faith filled, and always leave me with a longing for more, because they are so enjoyable. This is definitely a series I will reread. ...more

Dru Porter is the youngest in her family. She's also the only girl. As the late in life child, it's been a fight to keep up with her older brothers. Her mother tried desperately to get her interested in princess activities or dance, to no avail. After a stint in the military, Dru is now working for a security firm as a protection agent. Her next client is a football player named Gray Fowler. Gray has a stalker that has taken a turn towards dangerous. And until the police can figure out who is se ...more

I enjoyed reading Her One and Only so much! Dru and Gray were deep, complex characters who both had things from their past that they were trying to rise above. It was impressive to see how Dru had overcome bad choices and was now trying to live her life in a way t

Guys, I loved this book! That's all there is to it. The romance is sweet and the tension is steady throughout the course of the book. I loved Dru... It's hard to create a tough female character without her becoming annoying or overbearing, but Becky did an amazing job with making her likable, spunky, and easy to sympathize with. Gray is also a great character and his journey of overcoming his past to becoming the man he needed to be was touching and real. It was easy for me to see that they are ...more

Her One and Only was a great conclusion to the Porter Family series. While it didn't surpass book two (Meant To Be Mine) as my favorite, I did still love it. The first half was good, but it was the second portion that made this a five star read. I absolutely loved the pace and ending.

I liked that there were scenes with Meg and Bo (from book one), but I do wish that we would have gotten some insider scenes with Ty and his wife. ;)

One of the things that I really liked was the suspense...oh, and I

Talk about a book hangover!! I finished Her One and Only last night and sat there after putting it down thinking...WOW. I am pretty sure this is my favorite out of all of the Porter family novels. I loved the flow and feel of this novel. Becky Wade has a knack for creating life-like characters with genuine emotions and reactions. She pulls you into a story and leaves you wanting more at the end (in the best possible way, of course). Overall, I'm sad that the Porter Family series has come to an e ...more

This book is filled with all things AWESOMENESS!!! Seriously, I haven't finished a book in a while (or more like 20 books or so) that left me with that warm glow, cheesy grin, and chattery lips to talk about every favorite scene in this book feeling. And since the book is over 300 pages, that's a lot of talking.

Ahh...what a satisfying conclusion to the Porter Family Series. Her One and Only and Meant to Be Mine were equally my favorites.

Her One and Only is Dru's story. I loved her spunk and confidence. She and Gray were a perfect match.

I highly recommend the Porter Family Series that enjoy Contemporary Romance with a dash of humor.
I needed a good romance story so I turned to a book by Becky Wade- it’s a given that she writes great ones! It was pretty awesome that the main female character, Dru, was a bodyguard (I mean, executive protection agent). She had a kind heart and was fiercely protective of her family and friends, and could tackle the bad guys to boot. Gray, a successful football player with a rough upbringing, was so real and good-hearted in spite of his many defences that you couldn’t help but love him.

Her One and Only concludes the Porter Family series in a moving way and is an outstanding story on every level. Becky Wade is one of my favorite authors in the contemporary romance genre, such that I almost tend to go against type and get a little giddy when holding one of her new releases in my hand. I’ve read enough of Becky’s novels to have certain expectations when I begin a new one, and I am never disappointed. The writing is tight, not o

I very rarely give 5 stars to a book. I save them for the best of the best. 'Her One & Only' by Becky Wade is the final book in the Porter Family series. It grabs you from the very first page, I've read this book so fast, because I just couldn't put it down. I'm pretty sure it's my favourite of this series, which I never expected! Dru, the youngest child & only daughter of the Porter Family, is 10 years younger than Jake (the next oldest brother). She's been living her life in competition with h ...more

There was a lot to like about this book, primarily the beginning, the middle and the end. In fact, you will not just like, but sincerely love, the ending. Carefully and skillfully nestled in between are moments of suspense, uncertainty, intensity, and deep longing; between two individuals who though appearing to be larger than life, are really quite inexperienced when it comes to love.

I loved Dru ever since I've met her in Undeniably Yours and looked forward to reading her story. She grabbed me with her go-getter-spunky personality and I appreciated her honesty, especially when she challenged Gray on faith.

Gray was one of those characters who you hate at first meet, but then when you get to read the pages behind the cover, you love him. My heart broke for his past and I loved his redemption story.

Her One and Only concludes the Porter Family series. This is the perfect book and the perfect end to a perfect series. Her One and Only is fun, romantic, nostalgic and breaks all the old romance novel cliches. As the last book in this series it is nice to reconnect with all the past characters, see how Bo and Meg are doing, check in with Ty, Celia and their brood of kids and catch up with Jake and Lyndie. Meg and Bo play a substantial part in the book, but ultimately it is Dru and Gray's story t ...more

Ingenious, intriguing, and absolutely irresistible! Becky Wade, surely the Queen of Contemporary romance, delivers a tale that generates sparks on every page within ‘Her One and Only!’ A romance that sizzles, a foreboding mystery that baffles, and a powerful and emotive theme of trusting God—all barely even begin to reveal what an enjoyable tale that the ‘one and only’ author Becky Wade has created.

What I liked:
I loved the love story! Dru and Gray had awesome chemistry. I loved their banter and interactions right from their first meeting. Dru totally reminded me of Kate Beckett from Castle, only with blue eyes. Personality and looks all just screamed Kate, and in a good way. Dru is pretty tough and all about girl power. I personally, liked her softer side more and was easier to relate to. Gray was a tough guy, not only physically, but had built some pretty thi

This story is the finale of a series about a family and I would recommend reading the others first, as the brothers make appearances throughout this book and things will make more sense.

Hot, hot, sizzling hot chemistry! I love a book with a spunky heroine and a hunky leading man. Dru is a determined woman, one who has definitely sowed her wild oats and is now fierce, loyal, and tough. As an executive protection agent, she takes her job seriously and is committed to find out who is stalking and

I've loved every single one of Becky Wade's books. It seems that each one is better than the last, and Her One and Only is no exception!

After spending so much time with the Porter family over the past few books, I was definitely looking forward to *finally* reading Dru's story. Of course, getting to catch up with the rest of the family was also a plus.

Dru is all grown up now, and after a stint in the Marines, she is now working for a private security firm. This assignment is her first since a ma
