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.

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.
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.
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.
WOW! AMAZING! Jodi Ellen Malpas has done it again. This new book has kept me guessing throughout, who is after Cami and what is up with Jake's past and his connection to Aby and I never would have guessed the end result and I bet neither will you. This book is a must read. The british accents will make you swoon and wanting more. I know I certainly did. The brash hard character of Jake and the soft but strong character of Camille. What a mix. The changes in the characters throughout this story are great too.
I feel I am all over the place trying to write this review but that is because I am so bloody happy with this book and with Jodi Ellen Malpas for writing another amazing book.
I don't want to give away any details of this book, but I can guarantee you, you will not want it to end and it will leave you wanting more.
Evey time I read or listen to any of Jodi Ellen Malpas' books, I am saddened and feel a sense of loss when the book comes to an end.
Keep writing Jodi, I can never get enough of your books and your characters. A big high five for the narraters, Alexandra Baldwin and Owen MacMahon, they were outstanding! They truely did the characters justice. The book would not have read as well, without Ms. Baldwin and Mr. MacMahon's terrific voices bringing their characters to life.
Yes! Because the story grabs you from the start and does not let go for the entire ride. Great love story but also a story of redemption, healing and survival. Beautiful characters, great narrators, this is high quality through and through.
Jake because he was this tortured soul and watching him find redemption, healing and joy was very satisfying. His protective nature was a beautiful thing to experience.
Both narrators brought the characters to life and were easy to listen to. Sometimes Alexandra was difficult to follow when two females were talking... they sounded too much alike to keep track of who was speaking.
Yes, but I had to sleep and work so I finished it in two sittings!
Thank you Jodi! Please write more books soon.
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!
