Daughter first gets a book reserved (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

distant

Here is my best explanation:

'reserved' is the definition.

('distant' can be similar in meaning to 'reserved')

'daughter first gets a book' is the subsidiary indication.

'daughter' becomes 'd'.

'first' becomes 'ist' (**).

'gets' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'book' becomes 'nt' (I've seen this in other clues).

'd'+'ist'+'a'+'nt'='distant'

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for distant that I've seen before include "Absent - coming from a far-away place", "Faraway", "aloof", "overseas?", "Cool", "Far away", "Unfriendly; far off", "cool", "Remote in time or place" and "Aloof".)
