The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas
A standalone novel from Jodi Ellen Malpas, the bestselling author of the THIS MAN and ONE NIGHT trilogies, comes a passionate and unforgettable romance.
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. 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. 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.
Don’t miss LEAVE ME BREATHLESS the new linked novel to THE PROTECTOR – the perfect summer romance!
I started reading The Protector after finishing The Forbidden. Went in blind and hoped for the best.
If you are here because you have seen the movie, please take into consideration that I hate watching movies after reading the book. Usually if I watched one and found out afterwards that is based on the book, I’ll read it.
The book was beautifully written and as I am not a newbie of Jodi Ellen Malpas, I enjoy her books.
Camille Logan needs a bodyguard. As a spoiled rich girl, she has received death threats, and now her father wants her protected.
In comes Jake Sharp aka The Protector. The chemistry between them was felt as it should and let me tell you that Camille was not like Jake would have expected.
It’s quite a long book and I read it so fast. Just be aware that every book of this author has a twist. And it’s unexpected and all over the place.
