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.

Adult ReviewMy Thoughts

The Protector is a standalone adult romantic suspense by author Jodi Ellen Malpas. Jodi is one of those authors that I have consistently heard excellent things about, but have not had the opportunity to read myself. Now, having read The Protector, I know what all the hype is about. She can write seriously engrossing books. I could not put The Protector down.

The Protector is told in dual narrative between Cami and Jake. Jake is ex military turned private whatever-is-needed, for hire. His latest assignment is playing bodyguard for Cami, the daughter of a rich businessman. I loved Cami (and Jake) but Cami really surprised me. She was nothing like what I was expecting. Normally, in rich daughter gets a bodyguard stories, the girl fits a certain stereotype. And often times that stereotype is a bratty over indulged whiny young woman. But not Cami. I loved how spunky and fiercely independent she was. I loved the storyline surrounding her start up fashion line. She was a breath of fresh air.

And Jake was everything you wanted him to be. He is gruff and kind of grumpy. But he has whip fast instincts and I loved his protectiveness towards Cami. I did feel like a switch flipped between the two of them pretty quickly, and then all at once they went from being at each others throats to more.

Bottom line: I get what all the hype is about Jodi Ellen Malpas and her writing. She is very talented at writing character driven stories that will make you loose track of the outside world. If you are a fan of strong male and female characters, intense chemistry and intense suspense plotlines, grab a copy of The Protector today. But be warned, block off the rest of your day, because once you pick up this book, you will not be able to put it down.
