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?

Her One and Only
 is about an NFL Superstar, Gary Fowler, and Dru Porter, a former Marine who has been assigned as a bodyguard for Gary. Gary has been receiving death threats from a stalker, but hasn't taken the threats seriously. Dru is the youngest in a family of boys and has tried very hard her whole life to compete and be on an even keel with them. Gary doesn't appreciate having a woman as his bodyguard, but can't help being attracted to her. Despite his life of being a playboy, and despite her independent nature, they begin to develop feelings for each other, though Dru refuses to cross the line of a relationship with a client. She is determined to find his stalker and keep him safe before their relationship can continue. However, when they finally cross that client/employee line, she realizes she can no longer work for him. While this allows for them to try out a real relationship, it also exposes other problems and issues they each need to work on before they can commit to each other. 

This book was so good! I had a hard time putting it down! I really had no idea what was going to happen regarding the stalker situation, and had no idea of who the actual stalker was! The author did a wonderful job of keeping the suspense going, and keeping me engaged. This was a great book, and I hope to read more by this author!
