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.

In The Protector we get to meet Jake Sharp who is a tormented soul who needs a purpose or else he drowns himself in women and booze to keep his mind off a part of his life that is kept somewhat of a secret to the reader until the end.  We get glimpses of this secret as the pieces slowly start to come together making Jake Sharp a man you just want to hug and take all his troubles away.  We also get to meet Camille Logan, and from the outside looking in appears to have everything her heart desires.  The reader quickly finds out though that Cami wants nothing more than to be an independent woman, out on her own and not be the daddy's girl the press makes her out to be.

Jake and Cami come together when Cami's father hires Jake to protect his daughter from a threat that could cost Cami her life.  As the story progresses, tension mounts, trusts are broken, and relationships are mended; but most of all love blooms for two people who are absolutely perfect for each other and make each other whole.

What a special treat The Protector was to read!  The feels.....oh my gosh the feels!  The Protector is a fast paced, action packed, super hot sexy romance with well-rounded and well-developed  characters. The writing is outstanding and flows flawlessly.  The author, Jodi Ellen Malpas, definitely has an incredible talent and I can't wait to read more of her work.   I really enjoyed this astounding story immensely and did not want it to end.  Overall, from the beautiful cover to the fantastic story within the pages, this book is exceptional in every aspect.
