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.
Jodi Ellen Malpas has done it again. She’s made me fall in love! I did not want to put this book down!! I knew as soon as I started reading it that I was going to love it.
Jake and Camille are lovable characters. They both have their own personality and they’re both strong-willed people. I just adore Camille. She works hard for herself even though she has a dad who would give her the world if she asked for it.
Unless that world consisted of Jake. Even though he hired Jake to protect Camille from possible threats, he didn’t want her near him. He definitely didn’t want them to end up together.
The only thing that was aggravating was it took so long to get the action parts! But that’s completely okay. The super adorable parts make up for it in the end 🙂
I don’t think there will ever be a book by Jodi that I won’t like!!
