Waiting On Wednesday: The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas

'Waiting On Wednesday' is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication 'can't wait to read' book chosen by me is:

THE PROTECTOR by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Expected Release Date: 6th September
Publisher: Forever

(From Goodreads)

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. 

Why am I waiting for this book?
I've never read any books by Jodi Ellen Malpas even though plenty of people I know within the book community have. Secondly, despite being British, I don't read many books by British authors, a fact I want to change. So, I've decided to give this one a read when it is published rather than look at previous publications by this writer because as a reviewer I don't have the time to commit to reading a full series or trilogy. The blurb appeals to me, so I hope it lives up to my expectations.

What are you waiting for?
