Review: Not If I Save You First

Not If I Save You First






Maddie thought she and Logan would be friends forever. But when your dad is a Secret Service agent and your best friend is the president’s son, sometimes life has other plans. Before she knows it, Maddie’s dad is dragging her to a cabin in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness.

No phone.
No Internet.
And not a single word from Logan.

Maddie tells herself it’s okay. After all, she’s the most popular girl for twenty miles in any direction. (She’s also the only girl for twenty miles in any direction.) She has wood to cut and weapons to bedazzle. Her life is full.
Until Logan shows up six years later . . .
And Maddie wants to kill him.

But before that can happen, an assailant appears out of nowhere, knocking Maddie off a cliff and dragging Logan to some unknown fate. Maddie knows she could turn back- and get help. But the weather is turning and the terrain will only get more treacherous, the animals more deadly.

Maddie still really wants to kill Logan.
But she has to save him first.

Rating: 4-stars


Ally Carter has once again brought mayhem, danger, and teenage love into another engaging story. The books dragged on slowly but it was so worth the wait. I found the ending to be my favorite part of this book. The characters grew up quickly. Because the plot was short, there really wasn’t that build up of who and what they were. Like I couldn’t get a deeper inside of who Maddie and Logan were really as their roles from their parents and as their roles of who they have become. It had a sample taste of what the Gallagher Girl Spy series had. But due to the shortening length of this plot it felt like Ally Carter just didn’t want to invest in her characters. That disappointed me, as her characters from her previous books were what drove the plot lines and made them irresistible. Other than that, it was a great tale. But could have been better.
