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.
Romance, action, and hot, sexy body guard: what’s not to love? The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas is fabulous
I was not a fan of Jake Sharp at the beginning of the book; he was cruel, cocky and uncool! That feeling did not last long. Jake’s character evolves as the story progresses and you learn why he is the way he is. Although his poor behavior is not to be excused, he has redeeming characteristics and I fell for him!
Camille Logan is beautiful, intelligent and the daughter of an extremely wealthy businessman. Sounds like the making of a spoiled rich girl, I know, but she’s not. Intent on creating her own designer clothing line, Camille does it all on her own (without the help of her rich daddy).
Camille’s life is threatened due to her father’s ruthless business dealings and who does he call to protect her? Only the best body guard money can buy, Jake Sharp. The problem is that Jake is too good at what he does. He starts to dig a little too deep into the threats against Camille and asks a few too many questions. This makes Camille’s father nervous. Should he keep Jake to protect his daughter or let him go and rely on his people to protect her?
I loved this book. It has strong characters, an interesting storyline and steamy scenes! Anyone looking for a romance wrapped in suspense needs to take a look at this novel.
