by Jodi Ellen Malpas
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author
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 (Forever; September 6, 2016; $15.99).
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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So, Jake is a total alpha (wiggles eyebrows). I honestly wasn’t so sure how much I was going to like him at first. He had some issues, but they were actually not at all what I thought they were. I jumped to conclusions before finding out the full truth. It’s a doozy. By the time the story was over, I was begging Jake to please come and take me. He’s ‘all that’ and more (licking him in my mind right now).
Camile and Jake are a super couple. He’s a six foot four rock solid ex soldier. She’s the daughter of one of the wealthiest men in England and a model. He was hired to protect her, but the dangers aren’t exactly easily pinned down.
I enjoyed The Protector. It has action, mystery and loads of sexy.
