I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.
Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.
A case of insta-love turned into the real deal in The Protector, a new standalone by Jodi Ellen Malpas. Just when you thought her alpha males couldn’t get any hotter or more damaged, along came Jake Sharp, taking badass bad boys to a whole new level.
‘I need redemption. I need to fix too many things and accept myself before I can expect Camille to accept me. All of me, every dark, dirty, sinful piece.’
This was one steamy whirlwind of a romance, written with a perfect balance of explicit love scenes and tender, sincere emotions. It was all about the alpha male vs. the strong heroine and how they both hid secrets about themselves from the world. And after a slow and steady start to the first half of the book, where we watched Jake and Cami’s attraction grow past the point of no return, the second half of the story took off and was pure adrenaline. It never let up, as Jake’s secrets were revealed one by one and the threats against Cami amped up.
