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.

This story takes many twists and turns. There’s passion, suspense, humor and excitement in this riveting new read by Jodi Ellen Malpas.

I was completely captivated by THE PROTECTOR. Jake is an amazing character; strong and fiercely protective, yet deeply troubled. He’s fighting some major demons and to keep those demons at bay, he immerses himself in alcohol, women and work. The deadlier the assignment, the better. At the beginning of the story, Jake is in a really bad place and is relieved when his partner delivers his next assignment: protecting an entitled “princess” figure. Well, he’s almost relieved. Jake has no patience for selfish, privileged party girls. But as his assignment goes on, Jake finds out that Camille is none of these things. It’s a blessing and a curse.

Camille Logan is a strong, self-sufficient woman. She knows her dad is a very rich and powerful man, but she wants to be successful on her own. Independence is very important to her. Unfortunately, her father refuses to let Camille out from under his oppressive thumb. He wants to protect her but his idea of “protection” is overbearing and controlling. Especially when he hires Camille a bodyguard. What nerve! Now Camille is saddled with an unbelievably gorgeous pain in the butt, cramping her style and invading her life. She’s already got one overprotective father; she doesn’t need two! But Jake is anything but fatherly.

As Jake and Camille spend more time together, lines are blurred between professional and passion and the threats on Camille’s life become a very real thing. And Camille’s father seems to be hiding something. All is not what it seems and the real threat to Camille’s life may not be as dangerous as the threat of losing her heart to Jake.

This is my first read by the author and I really enjoyed it. Jake is a very dangerous and very sexy man. In the beginning I didn’t think much of him because he is a pretty big a**hole, but he slowly won me over. I loved Camille. She’s strong, independent and loyal. I admired her so much. I thought She and Jake paired well together.

The plot was what kept me glued to the pages. There’s suspense and some angst and a lot of surprises. I loved how three-dimensional the characters were and how well they supported each other and the storyline.

THE PROTECTOR is a solid read from an obviously talented author and I would definitely recommend it to readers.

I want to thank the publisher for gifting me an early copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.

Success quickly followed in the UK, with thousands of readers falling head-over-heels for the devastatingly handsome Lord of the Manor Jesse Ward and his feisty counterpart, Ava O’Shea, as all three books became major Sunday Times bestsellers. This was followed by further success with her second series One Night, which introduced the irresistibly enigmatic M.
