Might contain spoilers.

Honor is the president’s daughter and she’s expected to behave a certain way. She’s spent her whole life living by the rules…until the newest member of the Secret Service shows up.
Washington has done his best to watch her and keep his hands and his dirty thoughts to himself. But it’s her eighteenth birthday and he’s been left in charge of guarding her. How closely can he watch her body without giving in to his urges? Not long.

Protecting Freedom is a standalone by Alexa Riley. I didn’t even know it was a freebie (because I refuse to pay for eBooks) until Ruby @ Ruby’s Books let me know about it. She know how obsessed I’m over their books. I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it.

Let’s start by talking about our heroine. Honor is pretty much daddy’s girl since she was raised without  a mother unless you count her father’s assistant. But now that Honor is about to be eighteen she’s ready to make her own choices instead of just doing what her father wanted her to do. Instead of wanting to prove herself or something, she wants a house full of kids and a husband who was home every night for the dinner. I guess she’s used to her dad not being around a lot since he’s the president and doesn’t want her future husband to be too busy for her.

There’s just something about these possessive male characters that draw me in. Washington works at the white house. He tries to keep a straight face and act like he doesn’t care about Honor. She might think that he doesn’t care about her but he’s trying the hardest to keep his hands off of her. All Washington wants to is to take her away and shield her from the world.

“I’ve been home for a while,” he says, and I know he means I’m his home.”

It’s a short book, so while there’s a tiny mystery (so it lasts about five minutes) it’s solved very fast. I found this insta love cute; they have been crushing for each other for years but tried to hide it. I’d recommend to read this one if you need a quick read before bed or for boring summer day.
