The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas

First of all I’m going to say that I was apprehensive of reading this book after the One Night’s debacle, I LOVE Jodi (Yes, in shouty capitals!) and also love her writing but Miller, just didn’t do it for me. I mean, after Jesse Ward, what can you expect?

I enjoyed this book a lot, since the beginning, it was a pleasant reading. I loved it! I really liked the story. I cried a little at the end, but happy tears, that was a sweet and cute end. I felt in love with Jake as I never thought it would be possible with one of JEM characters again, I mean, as I said, what can you expect after Jesse Ward, right? – Well, for me the answer was a handsome shadow, a hot/raw/alpha PROTECTOR with a killing instinct to have under his care his most precious possession: Camille, a true fighter, a strong woman, who has a really crazy arsehole for dad. I liked how during the reading you get to see how Camille is helping him to open to the light again, and I really didn’t expect that twist at the end, the true behind the photograph and his omission of the truth. Just Wow!

Thank you Jodi, for making me fall in love with another of your characters once again. I really never thought that would be possible after Jesse.

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 hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. For more info about Jodi and her upcoming plans and projects:

Moonshot by Alessandra Torre

OMG! Alessandra Torre keeps surprising me with every book. When you think you know what is coming, she has an exquisite way to change your perception in a way that the twists in the story end up being incredible.

Wow! This book is sweet, and fresh, and so innocent in many parts. I loved Ty and Chase’s story, it was beautiful. And as always you never know what to expect with Ale and her books, but you end with a huge smile on your face. I loved it, even when I don’t like much baseball. But the story just catches you.

Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase… he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.


I tried to stay away. I couldn’t.


Then, the team started losing.
Women started dying.
And everything in my world broke apart.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

“Fifty Shades Darker” Trailer

The excitement is incredible, I know!

Yesterday I was so crazy about the trailer that I completely forgot to post it, but here’s what we all have being waiting for. Trailer #1 “I want you back”:

For me, so far only seeing the trailer I can say that this film adaptation is more like the book, first the director is none other than James Foley, director of the hit series House of Cards, the screenplay adaptation was made by Nial made Leonard, Erika’s husband, who better person that the one, who was with her at all times while she was writing this story? And once again produced by Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, Marcus Viscidi and Erika herself. Coincidentally at this moment I am reading the trilogy for the 8th time, and I’am in the part of Fifty Shades Darkest when Ana arrives at her apartment and is Leila waiting for her, so I have fresh memory. This trailer has everything:

  1. The masked ball and Ana’s mask Wow! Simply beautiful!
  2. José’s photo exhibition.
  3. When Ana and Christian are in his childhood bedroom.
  4. Christian’s marriage proposal to Ana.
  5. Sailing on The Grace
  6. Leila at the edge of the bed (That, I think it’s at Ana’s place, when they get back together, is not something that is described in the book, but can be part of the plot)
  7. Jack the asshole appears, played by the very handsome Eric Johnson.
  8. The long-awaited Mrs. Robinson, Kim is just phenomenal.
  9. The arrival at the basement of Escala, which I can assume is when they find Ana’s car destroyed by Leila.
  10. When Christian shows Ana the research papers of his background of her.
  11. The accident in Tango Charlie.
  12. And of course one of the most shocking moments in the book, when Leila at Ana’s place.

I loved! Really! I’ve seen countless times, to observe every detail.

And I can’t wait for Valentine’s Day on 2017!

I hope you enjoy it!

Laters Baby!
