Book Review: The Protector By Jodi Ellen Malpas

Synopsis: People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy's girl; 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.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Review:  I'd like to start this review off by stating that this was my very first JEM book. I know, I know, don't judge me. I had heard mixed reviews about JEM's books from other bloggers in the past that I was a bit skeptical about picking up one of her books. However I'm really happy that I took a chance on The Protector cause I really enjoyed this story. 

Yes the storyline may have been a tad cliche but I actually loved the fluff in this book. It didn't annoy me like I thought it would. It had really good plot twists and the sex scenes were scorching. I literally had to fan myself over how Alpha Jake was *Sigh* Seriously.... I need a Jake in my life! *Insert googly eyes emoji here* Her writing was incredible. The only complaint I have about The Protector is that it was extremely hard for me to be emotionally invested in these characters. I really tried but for some reason they didn't feel real in this bloggers heart which is why I rated this book a 4 out of 5 starts.
