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.

My Thoughts:
Jodi Ellen Malpas first captured my attention when I read "This Man", I love her writing style and sometimes after an author has such an amazing series under their belt, other books seem to fall kind of short. That is not the case with The Protector! Dare I say I liked it even more than the other books?

There's just something about Camille and Jake that I flipping loved! There was an attraction right from the start. My heart broke a little for Jake. He's such a dented man and the fact that he calls Camille his angel, makes me love him even more. There's also so much more to Camille than meets the eye. She's not a superficial, spoiled rich girl. I love the fact that Jake seen the real her.  I also did not see the ending coming! I was a little surprised at what Jake was hiding, but that's what makes the book so good. Slowly things got revealed.

This is one book y'all don't want to miss. Please just get this book and see for yourself.
