Release Day & Reviews by Marina, Jackie & Maimeo's Angels: The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas

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.

I don't know where to start really! I am a huge fan of this author and although the beginning was a little slow, as I read on I really started to enjoy it and not want to stop reading. This book had drama, suspense, heat and some tension that came off the pages!! As with this authors previous books, you don't want to miss out on the suspense that will have you gripping something to hold onto to keep you reading! It certainly kept me on my toes! What happens when Jake becomes Camille's bodyguard??? All is not what it seems and the way these two develop is interesting and sometimes trying.
Read it for yourself to find out what transpires.
Netgalley Arc received for an honest review.

Another brilliant read from JEM and yet another perfect man who's name starts with the letter J.
A few firsts this time around we get the first ever standalone and the first dual POV from this author.
Jake stole my heart and I found myself second guessing throughout the book but I never guessed how this book was going to end!
I have to admit I struggled with Camille, it took some time and a few chapters for me to get to like her but I'm guessing that's how this story was meant to be.
As always the characters are strong and the chemistry is full of heat. This book is full of drama and secrets but it's also funny in parts and if you have read other books by JEM you will understand what I mean when I say it feels like it's been written from the heart.
For me the pace of this story was perfect and Jake is the perfect man what more is left to say apart from I loved it.
I was given a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley for an honest review.

I have been looking forward to reading this new book by Ms. Malpas ever since she announced it.
Firstly, you cannot go into reading this book thinking that it will be similar in style to her previous series. This is nothing like it and is in fact a stand-alone. The Protector is a departure from her normal writing style in that it is told in dual POV’s.
Both of the main characters backgrounds and their thoughts are divulged to a greater degree than previous characters which assists the reader in understanding how they have both gotten to their current positions in life.
As with previous books by Ms. Malpas I found this one to be well written and interesting. The characters were well rounded and I found myself at times laughing at the banter between Jake Sharp and Camille Logan.
Jake is a bad boy, ex-military and a man not to be taken lightly; add in a pairing with misunderstood Camille and there are sure to be fireworks. When Camille’s life is put in danger, Jake is hired to be her bodyguard, a job if he is honest he doesn’t really want.
However he soon falls for the beauty of Camille, there is so much more to her than just her outward beauty and here is where Jodi Ellen Malpas weaves her magic. I have to say I really liked both Jake and Camille and I really wanted them to get their happily ever after.
What happens when their pasts come back to haunt them tough? Can they escape the past and make a future together?  
I enjoyed the storyline although at times I felt that it dragged out more than was required, however having said that the ending was absolutely spot on.
I look forward to reading more from Jodi Ellen Malpas in the not too distant future.
