The Protector (Review)

1

I don’t know what this woman is trying to do to my hormones, but she sure as hell managed to turn them into pure mush thanks to Jake Sharp. I totally appreciate it, because it was worth every single minute that I spent in the world of The Protector. First, she delivered Jesse Ward, then she introduced us to Miller Hart, and now, Sharp.

The story is written from the perspective of both of them, Camille and Jake. Each chapter tells the story from their point of view, which tends to be my favorite kind of telling.

She has ended up on my list of favorite authors alongside Dante and Charlotte Bronte, her way with words and storytelling is capturing, thrilling, and beautifully enticing. I strongly hope she never stops creating and keeps bringing these extraordinary men that she has inside that heart of hers.

-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.
