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?

About the Authors
Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz met the first day of freshman year at the University of Southern California and instantly bonded over their obsessions with Brenda Walsh, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and The Babysitters Club books they read growing up. After spending a full year mourning the end of college, they began writing television and feature scripts together. They have set up pilots at ABC, NBC, Fox and CW, and sold films to The Weinstein Company, Happy Madison, Paramount, New Regency, MGM and Alloy Entertainment. They love writing female-centric stories, especially for teen and tween audiences, mainly because they still think they are the 18-year-old girls they were when they first met at USC.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
***spoilers if you haven’t read the first three***
Well, book three left me hanging a bit when important news breaks that the vice president is going to resign and the race is down to two important players: Taryn’s dad and Ellie’s mom. Will these girls keep it together while under going even more media scrutiny, not to mention intense background checks? Ellie must decide whether she can live without Gabe as not to ruin her mother’s chance at a moment in history, while Taryn is thrown more into the arms of Brinley and her family. As Taryn’s dad has hired Brinley’s father to navigate the sharky waters of the nomination, she must learn how to act properly in Washington society. Brinley has completely turned herself around and while still searching for who released the picture of Gabe and Ellie, she finds that her family is not as caring as she thinks. Evan is now in the in-crowd since her relationship with Hunter is now public, but it all goes awry when she starts thinking with her heart instead of being her usual cautious self.
Wow, just WOW. This is probably the most fun read ever! The pacing, character development and dialogue woven in with fashion and location are just phenomenal. The characters continue to grow and develop and it is really wonderful that you can get the point of view for each interaction with the interactive function in this book. For adults who wouldn’t be caught dead watching the CW, this should be your new guilty pleasure. Fill up your eReader with this series and take off to the beach, but prepare to for the sunburn to come once your forget about the time. Again, Parents, there is language, drug/alcohol use, and sexual situations but nothing worse than what is on television anymore.
