Review: Not if I Save you First by Ally Carter

Rating: ★★★★★

Series: No

Pages: 304

Genre: YA, Contemporary

After Maddie’s Secret Service dad takes a bullet for the president, he takes Maddie somewhere he thinks they’ll be safe – far away from the White House and the president’s son, Logan.

But when Logan comes to Alaska, so does the danger.

If there’s one thing Alaska has taught Maddie, it’s how to survive. And now her best friend’s life depends on it ..


A little bit childish for me, but not unenjoyable. She is the daughter of a secret service agent, and he is the son of the President of the United States.

The bad guy is a Russian, quite apt I think in this political climate, whether true or not ( I have no head for politics)

The novel was a little clique in places, but it did have some clever twists. Ally Carter, clearly has her genre sussed. The language she uses is perfect for her audience and leads both protagonists on a journey, that is relatable (as much as you can for a presidents son)

Overall, A lighthearted fun read, with an enjoyable plot, and really funny dialogue.

Dear Logan,
Someday I’m going to write a book: How Not to Die in Alaska – A Girl’s Guide to Fashionable Survival.

I bet you don’t know that a hair pin can make an excellent fishing hook. You may think you can use just any kind of mud for mud masks, but trust me, you CAN’T! In a pinch, nothing starts a fire like nail polish remover. Alaska is tough. You might know this, if you ever replied to my letters

  1. This sounds like a good guilty pleasure book and I’ll have to check it out 🙂 Funny dialogue is always a good thing. Have you read any of Ally Carter’s books before? I’ve heard good things about them but don’t think I’ve read any yet
