The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas | Book Review

Reading Group: M for Mature 

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Synopses: Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. The ex-SAS sniper was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating--both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again 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 the lesser of two evils seems to be protecting the heiress, whose life is threatened as a result of her father's ruthless business dealings.  

He thinks he knows her type: beautiful and spoiled, with her father's bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But he soon discovers the real Camille--warm, compassionate, determined to be independent and happy after struggling with past mistakes. Now, his duty to protect her turns into something 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.  

For fans of Maya Banks, THE PROTECTOR delivers the all-consuming romance and devastating alpha hero that make a Jodi Ellen Malpas novel an irresistible, passionate read.

Cover: I love the cover of this book because it's the scene what Jake carries Camille out of the club after she gets attacked by her ex-boyfriend.  This scene is the turning point in their relationship because when they get back to Camille's apartment they finally give in to their feelings.  It's also the picture that ends up in magazines and they use it to help figure out who's following Camille.

My Review: I really enjoyed this book.  It was similar to what Christina Lauren would write, but different at the same time.  By the end of the book, Jake and Camille are completely in love with each other, but it didn't start out that way.  Jake was hired to protect Camille and both of them had preconceived opinions about the other.  But eventually the realize that the other person isn't exactly what they thought and they're able to form a romantic relationship.  However, Camille is still being threatened by someone who is trying to punish her father and Jake is suffering from PTSD and a secret that he doesn't want to deal with.  I really don't want to give too much away but the story is full of love, lies, and blackmail which makes it hard to put down.  Honestly, I don't know how realistic this story might be, but when has that ever stopped me from loving a book?  It was an easy read with a few different plot twists that had me hooked and staying up to finish it.  So if you're into a romance novel with some action strung throughout it I would definitely recommend this book to you.
