Publisher's Summary

A new stand-alone novel from Jodi Ellen Malpas, the best-selling author of the This Man and One Night trilogies.
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 to never 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.

Hard to believe it is the same writer.

The clichés are raining down in every other exchange between the characters. The narrators way of reading the heros lines is hard to take seriously. The same goes for the female narrators choice to emphasize on stupid places and with "dreamy and breathy" voice at places that make the heroine look more stupid and entitled than she needs to.

Having a hard time believing it is the same writer that wrote This Man. It is like night and day. This is cheesy af. That was at least filled with humour in the light of all the craziness. SAVE your credit, read it instead.

Disappointed

I was really looking forward to the release of this book on Audible. Unfortunately it's not a patch on Jodi's previous works. The storyline was ok but slow in quite a few places. I wasn't in a rush to listen to it and left a while before going back to it. The narrators are awful. Jake's voice is forced and trying to be overly manly with the constant use of the F-word. Camille's voice doesn't match the age of the character and sounds too mature and the long drawn out pronunciation of some words is just irritating. Let's hope her next books have different narrators. Sorry Jodi but this wasn't your best!

Such a let downi

I loved This Man and the One Night
series that I have listed too many times to count , but the female narrator has absolutely killed this book for me she is so wrong , her voice is to old and whilst she tries to put feeling into her performance it really does not work to the point that I have returned it for a refund I find it that bad plus the story is lacking can't get into it at all I will purchase an Ebook when it gets reduced to finish ,
Sorry Jodi I was so looking forward to it

Loved it!

Having read several negative reviews I approached The Protector with trepidation. I needn't have, I loved it. I've read and reread This Man and One Night series and this is on the same level so I'm writing my first ever review to counterbalance said negative reviews. For me it's ever so romantic and erotic and has a very happy ending. What more could I want?
