Publisher's Summary

The new novel from the best-selling author of the This Man trilogy and One Night trilogy!

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy's girl, a 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.

    Story
    "Dissapointed..."
    Would you try another book from Jodi Ellen Malpas and/or Alexandra Baldwin and Owen MacMahon ?

    Not if Owen MacMahon is the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Still listening, but am so unhappy with the male narration I had to write a review.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alexandra Baldwin and Owen MacMahon ?

    Alexandra Baldwin has done a wonderful job so far. I am so dissapointed in the male narrator, Owen MacMahon. I would love to hear the British version of Sebastian York as Jake, or Edita Brychta would work. She did a splendid job with the This Man series.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't finished listening to the book yet and am not sure if I can. I love Jodi Ellen Malpass but would give a pass on this book on Audible because of the male narrator. His voice just doesn't match the description of the sexy bodyguard.

    "Simply Perfect"

    This was a joy from the first word to the last. Great story, realistic angst, strong characters, and superb narration. There was action and sizzle, a great love story and even some laughs. This is one I'll listen to again. Thanks Jodi.

    Story
    "Not what I expected"

    I absolutely fell in love with Jesse Ward, This man trilogy was more than I could imagine. the writing was extraordinary. then she wrote the "one night" trilogy and I couldn't have imagined it being better, it blew my socks off. Miller Hart was by far the best character I have ever read about. that being said, the protector fell short of my extremely high expectations. Jodis writing style is one of a kind, one of a magnificent kind. The Protector was good, but not her best.

    "I really wanted to like this one"

    Not a bad story but after reading her previous work I felt disappointed with this one.

    "great couldn't put it down"

    great story flowed well and had a lot of excitement and emotion. the narration had to be sped up since the female spoke rather slow and a bit dramatically. after speeding up it was perfect.

    Story
    "I wanted to love it."
    Where does The Protector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not very high and it is because of the male narration I just read that audible posts reviews at its discretion so im going to be totally honest. I have listened to the "This Man" series many times. I will never listen to THe Protector again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I wanted to love jake but i couldnt connect the voice of the narrator with a tall, sexy, tough, desirable man.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alexandra Baldwin and Owen MacMahon ?

    Someone with a nice deep voice and doesnt drop sounds in his words. Dont get me started.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I looked forward to this book and bought it with my credit on the day of release. From the moment Jake spoke, i thought, "Oh. Dear. This is not going to work." I tried to adjust... i kept listening...as much as i tried, i could not fake myself into believing that the Jake was 6'4", handsome, sexy, desirabe, or ex military. I wanted to take him to professor Higgins to speak properly. All i could think of was eliza dolittle's dad. I kept checking the reviews on audible to see if anyone felt the same as i did. Im finally reading that some agree.


    Any additional comments?

    Please do not post this review but PLEASE read it. Ive never reviewed before this was AWFUL. I would return it but i like jodi ellen malpas' books.

    "Expected more"

    Book is just okay, not the her other books, expected more. Should have taken more time establishing the love connection with the two main characters. It's just okay for me

    "jodi never fails"

    loved this book! Jodi is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her ability to put together stories and characters is absolutely Sensational. Jake sharp is probably one of the best male leads out there along with cami. I was worried camiwas going to come off as a spoiled woman who then finds her way through life knowing that she can't have everything. She was actually introduced as somebody who you love from the beginning and isn't spoiled at all. I absolutely loved both characters it was brought together beautifully

    Story
    "I love JEM but really struggling with this."
    What would have made The Protector better?

    No one but Edita Brychta should ever narrate JEM's novels. The male narrator is just killing it for me. The female narrator is fine, but no one can top Edita.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alexandra Baldwin and Owen MacMahon ’s performances?

    Not likely for Owen.
