Jodi Ellen Malpas is the New York Times and Sunday Times (UK) bestselling author of two romantic trilogies: This Man and One Night. Now, Jodi Ellen Malpas is back with her long-awaited next novel—and her first stand-alone story—THE PROTECTOR
People think they have Camille Logan nailed: rich kid, daddy’s girl, beautiful, and spoiled. But Camille knows that support from her ultra-wealthy and overbearing father comes with a price tag not worth paying for. She wants a life without his strings. Out on her own, she’s made a few 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 questionable business dealings. She has no choice but to play ball when he hires an ex-SAS sniper to protect her at all costs.
Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He had been distracted from duty once before and the consequences were devastating, both personally and professionally. He vowed to never let that happen again. Being the bodyguard to socialite model Camille is exactly the kind of low pressure job he needs. But he quickly comes to discover that Camille isn’t what he expected. She’s warm and emotionally generous, and she slowly succeeds in drawing him out of his tough exterior. Jake’s past haunts him. Camille’s presence settles him. But he can’t have both.
Once again Jodi Ellen Malpas leaves you hot and bothered while sitting on the edge of your seat. The Protector is full of intense sexual chemistry, secrets and lies, and one hell of an intense ending. Jake Sharp is hired to protect Camille Logan. In true JEM fashion, Jake is the perfect mixture of brooding Alpha Male and sweet protector. What happens when the one you are sworn to protect ends up stealing your heart? Jake has secrets and when they come out you will be shocked. I seriously did not see that one coming.
The chemistry between Cami and Jake is palpable. Forbidden because of their circumstances. This is the part I enjoyed. I love the buildup in books between the characters. It makes the catch so much more enjoyable, believable.
Jake, Jake, Jake, Oh, how I love thee. I think I need protecting. Again, Jodi knocks it out of the park with the perfect Hero. Brooding, somewhat dark, and just the right touch of sweetness for his Angel. Can I tell you how much I wanted to melt every time he called Cami that? *sigh*
Great standalone from an author I put on my go to list. If you love Jodi’s books, then you will not be disappointed.
