ARC BOOK REVIEW...Georgetown Academy Book Four by Alyssa Embree Schwartz, Jessica Koosed Etting

When the vice president resigns and Ellie and Taryn’s parents emerge as the frontrunners, the girls find themselves back in the spotlight.

Ellie could not care less about becoming the Second Daughter, but she knows how much the opportunity to make history means to her mother – and women everywhere. With her family taking center stage, Ellie must decide whether she can put her feelings for Gabe on hold - again.

Taryn, so used to captivating the hearts and minds of everyone she meets, is unbothered by the increased media scrutiny. But an inopportune screw-up has her beholden to an unlikely – and unfriendly – source for help. 

Overnight, Evan has skyrocketed from social pariah to Miss Popular. As she and her reluctant parents adjust to her new lifestyle, the last thing she needs is a front-page scandal.

Brinley can’t stop thinking about her Stowe-bound hook-up…until her father’s intern, Patrick, starts flirting. Is it time to abandon her fling now that she has a more appropriate suitor?

With the second highest office in the land up for grabs, everyone is picking sides. But where does the heart lie when duty, truth, and love collide?

I was lucky to have been contacted by the publisher of "Georgetown Academy" to receive the ebook in exchange for an honest review.

The Georgetown Academy Series will always be in my eyes, "Gossip Girl" with politics.  In the fourth addition of the series, tensions are up, stakes are raised, and hearts are at risk.

Even though my bias is Evan, my attention did go a lot to Ellie.  There's a lot more going on for Ellie in this installment and I found myself gravitating to her, her issues, and also her relationship with male hottie Gabe.  Their relationship to me was so platonic that I found myself 'shipping' them. lol.

I did find some of the topics though a little boring every so often.  More so when I would involve the characters having some sort of identity kind of crisis moment.  I mean, we all get those but once in a while I found how they handled it a little annoying.

I also found the love portions of the book interesting but stagnant at times.  I felt as if there could have been more but ultimately I was satisfied.

Over all though, intriguing book.  You can tell the authors put a lot of thought into it as the political side of the story is especially complex.  Now add in familial and love and kin relationships and you have some major drama! lol ;)

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8
