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.

Maria’s Review

➦Hokay, so. I actually liked this one a lot. I listened to the audio and the narration is excellent, as long as you speed up the audio CUZ. The chick narrating this one has a very soothing voice and reads her part very… very… slowly… and…
description➦The heroine is a hot model and a daughter of one huge powerful & rich a-hole who tries to control all aspects of her life. When her douchebag of a father gets a letter threatening her life, he hires her a personal bodyguard. And not just any bodyguard.

➦Jake is an ex-special forces, this badass sniper, who works because he needs to keep busy, not because he needs the money. He has a sad, because something happened while he was in service and now he lives his life trying to not feel and just exist.

➦So he takes a job thinking this blond model is a spoiled entitled brat but as he spends more time with her he starts seeing her in a different light. And she starts feeling safe with him by her side.

➦So who wants to hurt her? Will Jake kick their asses?

➦I really loved how the relationship evolved from dislike and distrust to love. There is a suspense element to the story and that kept me interested. I’ve read reviews where people felt like the ending was a bit abrupt but I had no problem with it. I felt pretty satisfied with the way everything was wrapped up. Wondering how it all ends? I can’t tell ya, but I will give you a hint 🙂
