Grade: 3 stars out of 5
I enjoyed the prequel; the sequel didn’t wow me as much.
Being the president’s daughter is hard enough, but dating your bodyguard in secret is just as hard.I appreciate the author’s focus of having Morgan act like a typical teenage with typical teenage (just on a bigger scale). That being said some of her antics are outlandish and frankly unbelievable. I found the secondary characters under developed, though still fun, and simplistic. The conniving school rival had just one emotion, and while the solution to “getting back at her” was ingenious it didn’t have enough oomph.
What redeemed Confessions of a First Daughter was the sparkling, budding romance between Morgan and Max. In Secrets of a First Daughter, there are hints, but nothing awh-worthy. I was waiting for that ear-to-ear grin. Alas it didn’t come. It did have a happy cheesy ending that made my sweet tooth content for a moment there!
Do love the code-names!
