Not If I Save You First Reviews

    This is a cute and adventurous YA story and I really enjoyed it. Six years ago, Maddie, the daughter of a secret-service agent, and Logan, the son of the President of the United States were both ten and best friends. Then, something happened and Maddie moved to Alaska with her fath...

    New Ally Carter set in Alaska? ...

    This was a cute escape novel where Maddie, daughter of a secret service agent, and Logan, son of the president, are off in Alaska, when Logan is suddenly threatened, and Maddie?s survival smarts must save them both. Nothing too deep, and an easy-to-follow plot, but cute if you?re l...

    Galley provided by publisher I'd be the first to admit that I wasn't all that impressed by the last book Ally Carter released. I would even go so far as to say that I was a bit disappointed. This one, on the other hand, is a welcome return to how good her previous output had been. ...

    Enjoyable teenage/YA tale full of action, suspense and some great, sharp narrative. All the boxes are ticked here for a good, no nonsense escapist read with decent characters and great location. It's a fast paced read following the story of Logan and Maddie on the run in cold Alaska fr...

    The novel was good. The synopsis (...the part with the president and special forces) raised my expectations. I expected more action, guns, bombs and so on. An Alaskan forest as the main setting took the pizzazz out the novel. ...

    The first thing I will say is that this book is pitched as Girl Saves Boyand Girl want to kill the boy and then save him and its set in Alaska and it's going to be really angsty and action-packed but,,, it really wasn't that. This book is about a girl called Maddie. When she was lit...

    ?Dear Logan, Someday I'm going to write a book: How to Not Die in Alaska -- A Girl's Guide to Fashionable Survival.? This was my first Ally Carter book (whoops) but I?ve heard such good things about her books that I knew I had to pick this one up, especially as it wasn?...

    For a standalone, this somehow managed to capture all of Ally Carter's strengths from her previous series! Political intrigue, high-stakes survival and hidden backstories, 'Not If I Save You First' would be a great starting point for people that wanted to discover Ally's books, without...

    This is the story of Maddie Manchester, who is the daughter of the man who was in charge of protecting the president. Until that is, he got shot foiling a kidnap attempt by the Russians. Maddie, who saw her father wounded was with the president's son, Logan, and he was also injured. F...

    this was so great. it was fun and full of adventure. i like survival stories and i especially like when the girl saves the boy. i mean i wanted read this book because it's a girl saves boy second chance at love, best friends to lovers story sooooooo yeah it really lived up to all my ex...

    Ally Carter is the queen of teen thriller/spy/heist novels. So far I've liked every book of hers I've read (though Heist Society is by far my favorite). While this one has some of the same political and thriller elements as many of her other novels, it is mostly a survival story se...

    4/5 Stars ...

    Language ? G (0 swears, 0 ?f?), Mature Content ? PG; Violence ? PG; Maddie has been betrayed and left alone, which is great for practicing the skills that her father, a Secret Service agent, has taught her but not so great for finding friends. Before they moved to the middle ...

    I may be biased. You know, technically Maddie would've been a perfect Gallagher girl. She's like the combination of Bex and Gracie. And maybe if Logan's father is no longer the president, maybe he could attend the Blackthorne Institute. FULL (NON-SPOILERY) THOUGHTS IN MY BOOK BLO...

    I am such a big Ally Carter fan, so I am super excited for her newest book. I am very 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....

    Entertaining, humorous, suspenseful and just a whole lot of fun. I listened to the audiobook which I think was better because the narrator was able to give Maddie a fun personality. Maddie is strong, silly, girlie yet knows how to survive and take down dangerous Russian men. Her Secret...

    I didn't know the author and started reading without great expectations. The reading hooked me from start to finish and I really enjoyed it. Our heroine is badass and saves the hero countless times, but he does not disappoint us and shows his protective side when she needs him. We h...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus Maddie's father is a Secret Service agent who is protecting Logan's father, the president of the United States. "Mad Dog" and "Rascal" manage to get up to all kinds of trouble in the White House, finding secret passages and spying on dignitaries. When Russian...

    I had such high hopes going into Not If I Save You First, I'd adored Carter's books in the past and the absolutely amazing premise of course drew me in, so I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't end up enjoying this book more. Not If I Save You First started off wonderfully, I was draw...

    The Gallagher Girls will always hold a special place in my heart, and I expected this book to bring the same level of light-heartedness, fun, and funnies. Instead, I got some confusion, some super unbelievable things (lol, even more unbelievable than a spy school for fifteen year olds)...

    And yet another Ally Carter book that I could just not put down. I was engrossed from the first page. Now I am really wanting to go back and re-read all her Heist books. Moral Note: Some violence - shooting, fighting, talk of blood, kidnapping etc. Nothing too graphic. ...

    With Not If I Save You First, Ally Carter delivers a novel that is full of humour, survivalist adventure, a touch of drama, and a few bedazzled hatchets. Not If I Save You First is a stand-alone, and perfect for readers who enjoy female protagonists who are more than capable of looking...

    Mkay obviously I haven't read this. But I plan to. Girl... you better have done Alaska proud. ...

    This was a fun book to read. I had high hopes since Ally Carter is usually a knockout author. Her Embassy Row series had me hooked every page. Reading this, I had moments of disappointment during the book. Some scenes were great and kept you on the edge of your seat. Some scenes dr...

    I read this in almost one sitting. I have missed reading Ally Carter, she just sucks you into her world. There are some individual quibbles I had with this book, it took place over two days so both characters werent really fleshed out and I got annoyed with the (view spoiler)[ kidnappe...

    Not If I Save You First was a fun read. I've been a fan of Carter's previous series, so I was eager to read this one and it did not disappoint. I loved the secret service/first family plot and the setting of Alaska was great. There were a few things that were a little too unbelievable,...

    THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN! I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. Ally has done it again, its fun, sassy, cute and full of kickass action!! I LOVE MADDIE!! ...

    3/22/18 - Finally finished this one! I think the ending saved this from being a 2-star review. I was SOOOO not a fan of Maddie "Mad Dog" Manchester, but toward the end, my opinion of her really turned around. --- 8/28/17 - Announced by Ally Carter! This sounds awesome :D I'm...

    As much as I'm a fan of Ally Carter, I'm really not a fan of nature and the wild, and stories set in nature and the wild. And this was very much a hostage story in the Alaskan wilderness. Reading the book just made me feel cold and hungry. I wanted more of 6 years ago, than right now. ...

    This was a cute escape novel where Maddie, daughter of a secret service agent, and Logan, son of the president, are off in Alaska, when Logan is suddenly threatened, and Maddie?s survival smarts must save them both. Nothing too deep, and an easy-to-follow plot, but cute if you?re l...

    Galley provided by publisher I'd be the first to admit that I wasn't all that impressed by the last book Ally Carter released. I would even go so far as to say that I was a bit disappointed. This one, on the other hand, is a welcome return to how good her previous output had been. ...

    Enjoyable teenage/YA tale full of action, suspense and some great, sharp narrative. All the boxes are ticked here for a good, no nonsense escapist read with decent characters and great location. It's a fast paced read following the story of Logan and Maddie on the run in cold Alaska fr...

    Not If I Save You First was a fun read. I've been a fan of Carter's previous series, so I was eager to read this one and it did not disappoint. I loved the secret service/first family plot and the setting of Alaska was great. There were a few things that were a little too unbelievable,...

    This was a cute escape novel where Maddie, daughter of a secret service agent, and Logan, son of the president, are off in Alaska, when Logan is suddenly threatened, and Maddie?s survival smarts must save them both. Nothing too deep, and an easy-to-follow plot, but cute if you?re l...

    Galley provided by publisher I'd be the first to admit that I wasn't all that impressed by the last book Ally Carter released. I would even go so far as to say that I was a bit disappointed. This one, on the other hand, is a welcome return to how good her previous output had been. ...

    Enjoyable teenage/YA tale full of action, suspense and some great, sharp narrative. All the boxes are ticked here for a good, no nonsense escapist read with decent characters and great location. It's a fast paced read following the story of Logan and Maddie on the run in cold Alaska fr...

    The novel was good. The synopsis (...the part with the president and special forces) raised my expectations. I expected more action, guns, bombs and so on. An Alaskan forest as the main setting took the pizzazz out the novel. ...

    The first thing I will say is that this book is pitched as Girl Saves Boyand Girl want to kill the boy and then save him and its set in Alaska and it's going to be really angsty and action-packed but,,, it really wasn't that. This book is about a girl called Maddie. When she was lit...

    ?Dear Logan, Someday I'm going to write a book: How to Not Die in Alaska -- A Girl's Guide to Fashionable Survival.? This was my first Ally Carter book (whoops) but I?ve heard such good things about her books that I knew I had to pick this one up, especially as it wasn?...

    For a standalone, this somehow managed to capture all of Ally Carter's strengths from her previous series! Political intrigue, high-stakes survival and hidden backstories, 'Not If I Save You First' would be a great starting point for people that wanted to discover Ally's books, without...

    This is the story of Maddie Manchester, who is the daughter of the man who was in charge of protecting the president. Until that is, he got shot foiling a kidnap attempt by the Russians. Maddie, who saw her father wounded was with the president's son, Logan, and he was also injured. F...

    this was so great. it was fun and full of adventure. i like survival stories and i especially like when the girl saves the boy. i mean i wanted read this book because it's a girl saves boy second chance at love, best friends to lovers story sooooooo yeah it really lived up to all my ex...

    Ally Carter is the queen of teen thriller/spy/heist novels. So far I've liked every book of hers I've read (though Heist Society is by far my favorite). While this one has some of the same political and thriller elements as many of her other novels, it is mostly a survival story se...

    4/5 Stars ...

    Language ? G (0 swears, 0 ?f?), Mature Content ? PG; Violence ? PG; Maddie has been betrayed and left alone, which is great for practicing the skills that her father, a Secret Service agent, has taught her but not so great for finding friends. Before they moved to the middle ...

    I may be biased. You know, technically Maddie would've been a perfect Gallagher girl. She's like the combination of Bex and Gracie. And maybe if Logan's father is no longer the president, maybe he could attend the Blackthorne Institute. FULL (NON-SPOILERY) THOUGHTS IN MY BOOK BLO...

    I am such a big Ally Carter fan, so I am super excited for her newest book. I am very 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....

    Entertaining, humorous, suspenseful and just a whole lot of fun. I listened to the audiobook which I think was better because the narrator was able to give Maddie a fun personality. Maddie is strong, silly, girlie yet knows how to survive and take down dangerous Russian men. Her Secret...

    I didn't know the author and started reading without great expectations. The reading hooked me from start to finish and I really enjoyed it. Our heroine is badass and saves the hero countless times, but he does not disappoint us and shows his protective side when she needs him. We h...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus Maddie's father is a Secret Service agent who is protecting Logan's father, the president of the United States. "Mad Dog" and "Rascal" manage to get up to all kinds of trouble in the White House, finding secret passages and spying on dignitaries. When Russian...

    I had such high hopes going into Not If I Save You First, I'd adored Carter's books in the past and the absolutely amazing premise of course drew me in, so I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't end up enjoying this book more. Not If I Save You First started off wonderfully, I was draw...

    The Gallagher Girls will always hold a special place in my heart, and I expected this book to bring the same level of light-heartedness, fun, and funnies. Instead, I got some confusion, some super unbelievable things (lol, even more unbelievable than a spy school for fifteen year olds)...

    And yet another Ally Carter book that I could just not put down. I was engrossed from the first page. Now I am really wanting to go back and re-read all her Heist books. Moral Note: Some violence - shooting, fighting, talk of blood, kidnapping etc. Nothing too graphic. ...

    With Not If I Save You First, Ally Carter delivers a novel that is full of humour, survivalist adventure, a touch of drama, and a few bedazzled hatchets. Not If I Save You First is a stand-alone, and perfect for readers who enjoy female protagonists who are more than capable of looking...

    Mkay obviously I haven't read this. But I plan to. Girl... you better have done Alaska proud. ...

    This was a fun book to read. I had high hopes since Ally Carter is usually a knockout author. Her Embassy Row series had me hooked every page. Reading this, I had moments of disappointment during the book. Some scenes were great and kept you on the edge of your seat. Some scenes dr...

    I read this in almost one sitting. I have missed reading Ally Carter, she just sucks you into her world. There are some individual quibbles I had with this book, it took place over two days so both characters werent really fleshed out and I got annoyed with the (view spoiler)[ kidnappe...

    Not If I Save You First was a fun read. I've been a fan of Carter's previous series, so I was eager to read this one and it did not disappoint. I loved the secret service/first family plot and the setting of Alaska was great. There were a few things that were a little too unbelievable,...

    THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN! I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. Ally has done it again, its fun, sassy, cute and full of kickass action!! I LOVE MADDIE!! ...

    3/22/18 - Finally finished this one! I think the ending saved this from being a 2-star review. I was SOOOO not a fan of Maddie "Mad Dog" Manchester, but toward the end, my opinion of her really turned around. --- 8/28/17 - Announced by Ally Carter! This sounds awesome :D I'm...
