Publisher's Summary

A new stand-alone novel from Jodi Ellen Malpas, the best-selling author of the This Man and One Night trilogies.
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 to never 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.

Disappointed

I was really looking forward to the release of this book on Audible. Unfortunately it's not a patch on Jodi's previous works. The storyline was ok but slow in quite a few places. I wasn't in a rush to listen to it and left a while before going back to it. The narrators are awful. Jake's voice is forced and trying to be overly manly with the constant use of the F-word. Camille's voice doesn't match the age of the character and sounds too mature and the long drawn out pronunciation of some words is just irritating. Let's hope her next books have different narrators. Sorry Jodi but this wasn't your best!
