SYNOPSIS (FROM WEBSITE):
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 and into a totally different life.
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 down 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.

*This is a spoiler-free review. Every thoughts, feelings and opinions about this review is solely MINE.*
This book is about a daughter of the head of Secret Service and the President's only son. They were the best of friends, always on adventure by roaming inside the White House. One night, at the event hosted by the First Family, Maddie and Logan witnessed something that changed them: both as friends and as individual.
I have always been a fan of action movies and TV series with (of course) a good story. It is rarely that I read to read them, unless you count The Hardy Boys series by Franklin W. Dixon as an action-packed book, instead of a detective book for pre-teens.
I love both Maddie and Logan - these characters are so sync together. I enjoy how Maddie was able to change due to the circumstance a few years that led her to hate Logan but secretly crushing on him. My only issue is that it seems that the author made Logan a bit of a weak person in terms of not able to get a self-defense training. You see, if you are a member of the First Family, especially as a First Son, shouldn't he be subject into self-defense class just in case his security/body guards were down or had their hands full? I was looking for more action between these two characters: both ass-kicking while trying to survive the wilderness. I want the author to portray these characters as partners (equal to each other) and not I'm-the-First-Son-I'm-Your-Bodyguard roles.
RATING: 4 out of 5 stars
I really enjoy this book. I enjoy how both characters compliment each other though of course, our lead female character should be bad-ass, while checking her lip gloss if it is still in tact.
