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.
I had high hopes for this book because anything that Jodi writes is simply amazing and I wasn’t left disappointed! Every girl wants a guy like Jake Sharp who will protect her from any threat and that’s exactly what Jake did, he protected Camille. The chemistry between these two characters was off the charts. I totally loved this book!!
Jake to Camille.
“You’ve just told me that you’re going to be wearing next to nothing on this shoot, and now you’re telling me Mr Sparkly Knickers is going to be rubbing up against you?”
Jake to Camille’s mother.
For the first time in my life, I care about what someone thinks of me. I really am a pussy. I step forward, all chivalrous, and extend my hand. “Please to meet you, Ms Logan.”
She eyes me with caution. “It’s Ms Bell.” She raises an indignant nose and I die on the spot.
Heather to Camille.
“I had a feeling you were going to say that.” Heather shakes her head in despair. “I don’t want to piss on your bonfire or anything, but I doubt the bulldog out there is going to let you walk right up to her and smack her around the head. And you can hardly tuck that thing down your knickers to conceal it.”
The song that suits this book is ‘ Love You Now by John Legend.’
I rate this book 5 stars.
