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.

Not if Owen MacMahon is the narrator.
Still listening, but am so unhappy with the male narration I had to write a review.
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.
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.
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 struggled to finish it. The female narrator's voice was way too old sounding for the character's supposed age. The same old damsel in distress story is so obvious and totally overused. The introspection was over the top dramatic. There was no ordinary conversation between the lovers, just conversation about their love/lust for each other. It was absurd to think that they had anything other than a physical and lustful connection. Bullocks!
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.
Absolutely. The narrators made the story come to life!
I didn't have a favorite scene but I enjoyed the humor very much.
Listening to an entire book in one sitting is not an option for me.
I'm adding Alexandra Baldwin & Owen MacMahon to my favorite narrator list!
Once again Jodi Ellen Malpas has hit a home run. Jake, intense, driven and passionate has one goal only and that's to do the job he's hired to do...protect his charge at all costs. Cami, driven, successful and desperately trying to remain independent and self-sufficient in spite of her fathers' overbearing interference. Jake is hired by Cami's dad to protect her, when threats are made to harm her. Cami is less that enthused about Jake's appearance in her life..that is until things take a dark turn and Jake is force into desperate measures to save her life when he finds out that he had been deceived! A MUST READ!
The story line just wasn"t up to This Man or the One Night trilogies. Not sure if I will bother with the next book.
Probably one of the WIcked series.
didn"t add or detract.
Disappointing I liked her others books so much I was expecting more
