The Script! Emma Rigby as Camille Logan. Many words are trying to wrestle their way into my twisted mind, but only one is making it through.
And it was an hold no barriers explosion! One of vulcanic proportions, that will surely leave you weak kneed and panting. From that point forward there was no more denying their true feelings, and they gave in to all the lust and passion in the most delicious and steamy ways, with some scorching sex scenes and interactions. We could literally feel the sparks flying when they were together — it was enough to be in the same room.
His handsome face is clear, his gorgeous eyes twinkling. But when he gave in, OMG! I loved his brand of crazy obsessed with her. They had these fantastic steamy moments, where he made me fan myself with his possessiveness and dirty talk, but also had the most amazing tender and loving moments, where he showed her how precious she was to him, that had me swooning… WOW!!!
She looks stunned but calm. That she saved him from the darkness and despair. She is, after all the creator of the Lord of the Manor, Jesse, and who could forget that character? I certainly never will! Like I mentioned before I enjoyed this story immensely and loved all the characters — specially Jake and Camille — and the pace and development of the side plot and the unveiling of the mysteries.
I would have rated it higher if not for that nerve touching details on Jake that I referred before, and for the lack of true epilogue. After this I can only count down the days and be on the look out for her next release, because I have no doubt that from her creative hands it will certainly be something delicious — specially the Hero!!! So, there was no way I was letting this bad boy pass me by even though some of the reviews were less than stellar.
Camille's father has gotten some threatening letters against Camille so he hires Jake to be her bodyguard. At first, Camille is having none of it and gives Jake a run for his money but fairly quickly there's no denying their attraction any longer. I have to say that I love Jake. He's definitely not as alpha as Jesse I got a kick out of Camille. I loved that she wasn't riding on her daddy's shirttails and that she was so independent.
I do think some of "separation" left her with not having her eyes open to things going on with her father. Things were a little one sided with Jake knowing almost everything about Camille and her hardly knowing anything about Jake. And boy, did he have some secrets! I thought these two were pretty hot together That was a little My main problem with this book is that it's a standalone. I know, I know Some things got a lot of attention and others made me curious why they were even in the book!
The drama s are pretty predictable but everything ended quite well. The twist with Jake's secret sweetened things up and I liked how that ended even if it went a little too well.

When I got the book my husband asked me why I was reading The Bodyguard, which was a great movie, so I had high expectations.
The Protector is a mixture of suspense and romance, my two favorite things in a read. I love an alpha male and a damsel in distress, especially one that is rich and slightly famous. Cami is beautiful and is in danger. I liked Cami. I liked how she balanced the story with her sassy exterior and rational personality. I felt like she mixed with the Hero really well. Jake is the bodyguard and he takes his job seriously.
So this created a cute little tension between the two. Jake is the best out there and eventually he takes the job. I really like the dynamics between Cami and Jake. I like how Jake takes his job so seriously he has this no-none-sense attitude and I like how Cami finds him a little controlling. The banter between the two was a pleasure to read. This kind of adds a little tension to the read and a bit of mystery. The book delivers in steam.
Overall, I enjoyed the storyline and I felt like the main characters had a great fast pace chemistry. I have done a re-read and liked it more the second time around. I think I was expecting it to be like the author's This Man series, so it wasn't what I was expecting the first time around. The Protector was a bit toned down from all the crazy things that went on in the This Man series. Overall, It was good and I enjoyed. This was my first duel narration audio book and hope they do more like this.
It's nice having the appropriate gender to their own pov. And let me tell you, listening to Owen Mac I have done a re-read and liked it more the second time around. And let me tell you, listening to Owen MacMahon's accent was no hardship! My only complaint is I felt like I needed to speed up the females narration but if I did that then the males part was too fast.
My re-read was not with audio. View all 10 comments. Sep 02, Angie - Angie's Dreamy Reads rated it liked it. Jodi Ellen Malpas brings a mixture of suspense and romance in the stand-alone novel -- The Protector.
Both characters have their own sets of issues, yet they're brought together when Jake is hired by Cami's father to shadow her every move. Cami's dad is a ruthless business man who has made one too many enemies and unfortunately his daughter is caught up in the crossfire by a threat that he's perceived to Jodi Ellen Malpas brings a mixture of suspense and romance in the stand-alone novel -- The Protector.
Cami's dad is a ruthless business man who has made one too many enemies and unfortunately his daughter is caught up in the crossfire by a threat that he's perceived to be worrisome. Thus, Jake Sharp has been brought in to make sure Cami stays safe.
Jake is a rugged, strong, and deadly fighting machine with reflexes and muscles that'll have you double blinking in delight. He's the very BEST bodyguard in the business. And when it comes to the very wealthy Logan family, they only use the best of the best.
But when Cami and Jake first get together she is not pleased. Cami is a fiercely independent person who is not only modeling professionally, but is in the middle of trying to get her fashion line, with her best friend, off the ground. She doesn't want to be shadowed by a devilishly handsome and broody hunk of a man with deadly skills. But unfortunately for her, she has no choice.
She's in danger. Jake needs a mission to keep him busy. And her life is about to take an unexpected ride. As time passes, sparks fly between our hero and heroine, and the mission to protect Cami gets a little more heated and a lot more complicated. Eventually, these two can't deny their attraction and the wicked web around them tightens, leaving them both gasping and hanging on for dear life.
This story is well written and there are many elements to the plot. Not only do we have the romantic push and pull between the characters but there's the underlying threats against Cami.
Also add in the complicated dynamic between the characters, Jake's many skeletons, and you have a lot going on. Our hero is troubled, struggling with some seriously heartbreaking PTSD issues. And while overall the story has the romantic suspense down, I found myself a tad bit underwhelmed.
I can't really put my finger on the why, it's not a poorly written book, but it just didn't pack the emotional punch I was expecting.
And maybe that's my fault. Were my expectations to high? I don't know. But no matter how hard I tried to feel this book, it just didn't work. The romance felt dull and the suspense element didn't give me the rush, the heart rate dips and pulls, that I needed. So I guess, I wanted more. More romance. More action. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.
Camille sounds marvelous. Thanks for the heads up. Thank you, Elyse. Why is it that rich heroines are typically spoiled brats but rich heroes are masterful alpha lords of sex? Holy crap was this awesome. Well done. Thanks for the review. It would have been a regret buy that I would have permanently deleted from my Kindle account. Wow, this is like a bizarro world version of my October release.
It has the former military bodyguard, the rich socialite with the close female friend, the stalker-type…except my hero is a pansexual feminist. This book would have totally pissed me off, too. Which is a shame, because I obviously love the trope. Read the first book of one of her previous trilogies this week and though I had all three checked out from the library, I ditched the other two without reading.
Cynthia, I had pretty much the same experience. I checked out the first One Night book from the library last week.
For an erotic romance, I was finding it decidedly unsexy. I skimmed the rest and will not be checking out the sequels even though it ended on a cliffhanger. Oh my goodness!! 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. Donelle Arens. Claire , me too. Find out more about OverDrive accounts.
