#1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Jodi Ellen Malpas is the New York Times and Sunday Times (UK) bestselling author of two romantic trilogies: This Man and One Night.  Now, Jodi Ellen Malpas is back with her long-awaited next novel—and her first stand-alone story—THE PROTECTOR (Forever; September 6, 2016; $15.99).

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: rich kid, daddy’s girl, beautiful, and spoiled.  But Camille knows that support from her ultra-wealthy and overbearing father comes with a price tag not worth paying for.  She wants a life without his strings.  Out on her own, she’s made a few 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 questionable business dealings.  She has no choice but to play ball when he hires an ex-SAS sniper to protect her at all costs.

Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell.  He had been distracted from duty once before and the consequences were devastating, both personally and professionally.  He vowed to never let that happen again.  Being the bodyguard to socialite model Camille is exactly the kind of low pressure job he needs.  But he quickly comes to discover that Camille isn’t what he expected.  She’s warm and emotionally generous, and she slowly succeeds in drawing him out of his tough exterior.  Jake’s past haunts him.  Camille’s presence settles him.  But he can’t have both.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Whew! What a ride! This story is not to be missed! I absolutely love Ms. Malpas’ overprotective, bada$$, alpha male and her fiercely independent, strong and entertaining female characters! There were several twists and turns, super sweet ‘aw’ moments and highly entertaining banter. The beginning dragged a little bit but once we got to the meat of the story, it was hard to put down.

I didn’t really care for Jake when we are introduced to him. He’s a bit of a jerk – and I totally get that he has a reason for it but he had his work cut out for him to make him likeable. As far as overprotective, super sweet alphas go, he’s really good at it. He’s been through hell but when he start to become human again, he’s pretty amazing. I love him with Camille. I also love that Camille isn’t what she appears to be on the surface. She isn’t daddy’s self-absorbed little princess that has no personality and is just an airy pretty face. She’s the exact opposite of that. She stands up to her overbearing father. She’s smart. She’s quick witted. She’s sweet and not pretentious. She is just what Jake needs. He protects her, but she saves him.

There were a couple of characters that I didn’t care for but overall a recommended read.
