Book Review: The Protector

I just want to start out by saying Jodi Ellen Malpas is the queen of alpha males with tortured souls. She really knows how to pull at your heartstrings, and Jake Sharp is no different from her other men. He is deeply wounded by a past that just won’t let him go. Though it drove me insane wondering what happened to him, I thoroughly enjoyed his journey toward healing.

Camille Logan has a troubled past of her own, but she is back on her feet and trying to make a name for herself. Unfortunately her father’s ruthless business dealings have her in need of protection, and Jake is the only person who can do the job.

This book had me gasping, laughing, and crying through the entire thing. As with JEM’s other books, The Protector is full of suspense, drama, intense sexual chemistry, and fierce love. I’ll be hungover for weeks.

I am as in love with Jake Sharp as I am with Jesse Ward and Miller Hart. Part of me is disappointed that we don’t get to spend as much time with Jake as we did the other two, but a bigger part of me is glad we get the whole story in one book. I don’t think my heart could take waiting two more years to get the rest of his story. Now I just have to patiently wait until The Queen releases her next book.

THE PROTECTOR by Jodi Ellen Malpas (September 6, 2016; Forever Trade Paperback and Forever eBook; stand alone novel)


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.
