Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter

Not if I Save You First by Ally Carter has me intrigued by the fact that one of the main characters is the daughter of a Secret Service agent and the other the son of the president. The Alaskan woods setting is also unique, and it seems so eerie. I have very high hopes for this one, since I have yet to read a bad Ally Carter book, so I am eagerly awaiting the release of this adventure book this spring!

Summary (from Goodreads):

Bestselling author Ally Carter returns with an exciting stand-alone novel, about a girl stranded in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness with the boy who wronged her . . . as an assassin moves in.

Maddie and Logan were torn apart by a kidnapping attempt when they were young. They were only kids -- Logan's dad was POTUS and Maddie's father was the Secret Service agent meant to guard him. The kidnappers were stopped -- but Maddie was whisked off to Alaska with her father, for satety. Maddie and Logan had been inseparable . . . but then she never heard from him again.

Now it's a few years later. Maggie's a teenager, used to living a solitary life with her father. It's quiet -- until Logan is sent to join them. After all this time without word, Maddie has nothing to say to him -- until their outpost is attacked, and Logan is taken. They won't be out of the woods until they're . . . out of the woods, and Maddie's managed to thwart the foes and reconcile with Logan


I never leave the house with just one knife. Seriously. Do I look like a one-knife kind of girl?

It turned out, when pretty tall, pretty handsome boys needed to shave they became less “pretty” and more…handsome.

    Ooooh, I like this! I adore the sound of Maggie — doing the rescuing and still angry with Logan, for whatever reason.

    I’ve never read anything by this author before, but this does sound intriguing! I love the Alaska setting, too, it’s not one I normally come across.
