The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas


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.

3, 2, 1...wait. Not Jessie Ward. Move over Ward, Jake Sharp might just take the title of uber Protector. 

Who doesn't love a book where a tortured-soul man finds his light and his heart with the woman he's paid to protect? That is exactly what Jake Sharp (and I love that name!) finds with his next client, Camille. Camille is the daughter of a powerful, rich and corrupt business man. And her life is in danger because of her father, so in steps Jake to protect her.

But Jake is suffering from personal demons from war. He's been feeling guilt after losing his friends from the war and the only way to forget is to throw himself into a job. And his next assignment is protecting the spoiled princess, Camille Logan. But meeting Camille surprises Jake, she's far from the selfish and rich girl. But Camille is a strong and independent woman trying not to live under her father's nose and having a 24/7 bodyguard is not in her plan. But trying to shake off the very hot and mysterious Jake Sharp throws a big loop in her plan.

The Protector is filled with plenty of sexual tension, drama, and mystery. A great read that keeps intrigued on who wants to hurt Camille and if and when Jake and her can get it together!
