Devoted to Drew

by Loree Lough

THEY WERE WORLDS APART, CONNECTED BY A BOY... Why would a former football star like Logan Murray pay attention to her? Bianca Wright was a far cry from the beautiful women she'd seen him with in the tabloids. He was just being kind. Or even worse-felt sorry for her. He knew she was a widow with an autistic son. That had to be too much baggage for any man, and Bianca wouldn't accept anything but the best for her child. But if Logan could use his connections to match her son Drew with a therapy dog, she'd swallow her pride and accept his help. And yet, after fifteen minutes with Drew, Logan seemed to "get it" better than Drew's own father ever did. Had Bianca misjudged him? Maybe he had hidden depths. She would've liked to find out, but that was a risk she just wouldn't take...not when her precious boy was involved.
