New Release + Review: The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

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.

My Review
I had heard a lot about how well this author is able to write amazing and hard to forget alpha males from other book friends of mines and wow where they right.  Jake completely blew me away- I mean, I almost ran out of my post it tags with how often I was using them. I am such a sucker for damaged hero's trying to overcome their haunting pasts and Jake honestly just made me want to grab a blanket and wrap him up in it. Unlike so many of my friends, this was actually my first book by JEM and after finishing it last night, I'm going to go ahead and say that it most definitely won't be my last. Her writing flows so smoothly, her characters were so easy to love and she brought them to life for me with her words and I love that. I was on the edge of my seat half the time just waiting for something to happen, after all, if a protector is needed, it's for a reason, right? Jesus, I am still constantly thinking of this book, I will most definitely be looking into the rest of JEM's books.
