THE PROTECTOR by Jodi Ellen Malpas (September 6, 2016; Forever Trade Paperback and Forever eBook; stand alone novel)
THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE THIS MAN TRILOGY AND ONE NIGHT TRILOGY!
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.
4 – 4.5 Stars
The Protector – hot alpha male with a genuine good and loving heart – need I go on!? This book really has a bit of everything, alpha male, stubborn and sassy woman, romance and some suspense thrown in too. I really did enjoy this story from start to finish.
This was one of those stories that caught my attention right from the blurb, I mean damaged former military man assigned to protect the rich girl and they fall for each other, it’s a great story line. Jodi Ellen Malpas manages to capture the heart of these characters and while there is some smoking hot action on the pages, there is love and healing too. Camille and Jake both have demons they are dealing with, but right from the start these two have a connection with each other, and that connection soothes both of their broken hearts.
I loved the action in this book too, Jake is intense and puts up with absolutely nothing whether from Camille, her creepy father or anyone else who tries to get in his way. He is strong and powerful and holy moly he knows it. Cami certainly has her own strength, she doesn’t want to just float around using her father’s money, she wants to build her own life.
I definitely recommend The Protector, Jodi Ellen Malpas can write amazing alpha men and I love that this story, while full of drama sure, isn’t overly angsty and is a stand-alone. I loved these characters and their journey together and the end of this book made my heart so happy! Another great story from Ms. Malpas and I cannot wait to see what she does next!
