Sam was a politician’s favorite man. He had helped them get into office. However the man he worked for was retiring. He wasn’t sure what he would do from then on. On a night out to think, he meets a sexy seal. Then to his luck one of his favorite politician’s wants him to help her win the President spot. Here he was starting a new relationship and he was hardly ever there.
Blake wanted Sam and it would seem his daughter wanted the same thing. It would take some getting use to but it sure is hard being away from his lover. He had to remember his time serving and how his parents were with it, then use that strength for his relationship with Sam.
It is a very good story with tender touches, long kisses and some hot sex. The thing is there is not a lot of sex in this, which is disappointing in one. Then it just flows in one direction with no attitude to it. The title is hot but misleading, which shows me to always look at the blurb. I would recommend this if you are for love stories, tender moments, and cute kids. I hope that the next book has some action, danger or something in it to keep my attention.

SERVE & PROTECT is Book 1 of the D.C. Files – a series that is popular with readers.The synopsis distills the story well: ‘What happens when you fall in love in the heart of politics? Sam Daniels' life turns upside down when he meets an amazing guy and gets a job offer he can't refuse almost at the same time. Working in politics and sustaining any kind of personal life is never easy, but when you're running a campaign to elect the first woman to the office of the President of the United States, it may become nearly impossible. Blake Morin, after spending years as a SEAL, lives a quiet life with his daughter and he's fine with that. He can't deny the attraction between him and Sam, but is he ready to enter the world he used to avoid?’
Perfect subtle intro to a challenging situation story and a nice steamy romance. And this is only one book of a series of four on the theme The DC Files. Welcome to Megan’s sensitive world. Grady Harp, April 17
I read this book, having read a review which growled about it not being a thriller or an adventure story, so I knew what I was getting into. Linden did a good job, I thought, of showing the life of a political operative, and the realities of a presidential campaign and the stress and effect it might have on the person in charge of it.
The story was believable and enjoyable. I recommend it.
It wasn't quite what I'd expected, admittedly. This love story between a former active duty soldier / single dad and a political campaign strategist wasn't epic, or conflict-ridden, or terribly angsty (albeit the long distance relationship aspect did hit a bit closer to home as my own relationship was long distance for almost two years and it was terrible). What it was instead was fun and warm, fluffy and cute. A feel-good story about responsible and reasonable adults who work on their relationship and overcome real-life obstacles which at the same time explodes some cliches by sole virtue of presenting a gay guy without children of his own as the one striving to find the work-life balance. Add to that the fact that there are people of colour, well-rounded female characters and that one of the MCs is bi - and you have a very good combination.
The pacing is very good, the dialogues are frequently cute, the characters are perhaps almost too idealised but sometimes that's what the heart wants. After some romances where characters did some pretty s***ty things before getting together, this was a nice change of pace.
And now the only question is - do I read the Christmas novella that follows now or do I wait a week to be in the right (depressed) spirit...
