Dru Porter is "tough girl" personified- an ex-marine with a calm confidence and overall superwoman capabilities. She's been assigned as a body guard to NFL superstar, Gray Fowler- bad boy, confident, and none to happy to have a woman "protecting" him. But the threatening messages Gray has been receiving require Gray's security detail to be escalated. Despite Gray's stubbornness, protests, and advances, Dru proves herself to be more than capable as Gray's protector. His seeming inability to charm and woo Dru's affections, along with the time spent getting to know the amazing woman beneath the tough veneer, begin to break down the barriers to Gray's heart. And although she's maintained a coolness toward him, Dru also begins having feelings for Gray that threaten her professional position. The two finally pursue a romantic relationship when Dru discharges herself from Gray's protection team. However, Gray's inability to move toward commitment and the continued threats against him create rifts between the couple that may be insurmountable.
In past books from the Porter family series where Dru has made an appearance, I wondered who could possibly be matched to Dru romantically because of her tough, kick-butt personality. Wade hit the nail on the head with a perfect match in Gray Fowler! Interactions between the two were amusing because of their strong spirits and opposing personalities. The romantic tension sensed early on transformed their professional interactions into a passionate, heated (yet clean) romance later on. Wade did a superb job of carrying their strong personalities throughout the plot creating two of the most endearing- and made for each other- characters in the series!
