THE PROTECTOR by Jodi Ellen Malpas (September 6, 2016; Forever Trade Paperback and Forever eBook; stand alone novel)
THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE THIS MAN TRILOGY AND ONE NIGHT TRILOGY!
People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy’s girl; beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father’s bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings. Out on her own, she’s made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father’s ruthless business dealings. Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.
Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating–both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn’t the kind of distraction from his demons he should take. Women and Jake don’t mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn’t the woman she’s perceived to be. She’s warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can’t have both.
Brandi’s 4 star review
Ms. Malpas has been on my radar since the This Man series. She knows how to give her audience alpha males and I knew after reading the premise of The Protector it was going to be a reading frenzy. And was it ever….Oh,the feels this story gave me!
Jake is hired to be Camille’s bodyguard since there is a potential threat on her life. Their chemistry is instant but he has a job to do and she’s looking for independence, not a man to shadow her every move. They constantly fight the sexual tension but being under the same roof makes it nearly impossible not to give in to their desires but both of them are carrying baggage,especially Jake.
The reason I’m giving this a 4 star rating instead of 5 is because some parts of this story lagged for me. However, it’s a sexy romance, written very well with character’s that reader’s will enjoy. Camille is the kind of heroine that’s sweet and relatable as where Jake is sexy and dominating.
