Welcome to this weeks Waiting On Wednesday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.
What am I waiting on this week? The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas
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.
Release Date: September 6, 2016
I have been waiting on this book for months, ever since JEM announced it on her Facebook page, but since the cover reveal earlier this month I've been salivating over it. I mean, Jesse Ward is still one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends, no matter how many times I read the This Man Trilogy and no matter how many books I read in between re-reads, and I absolutely cannot wait to meet Jake Sharp and fall in love with another JEM hero :)
What are you waiting on this week?
