4 Stars: I Really Liked It

Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it’s that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting-or stealing-whatever they want. No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale’s family, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother’s billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there’s no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won’t let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother’s will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company’s fortune. So instead of being the heir-this time, Hale might be the mark. Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she’s willing to save her boyfriend’s company if it means losing the boy.

My Thoughts:
The best part about this book was all the information we learned about Hale. He had been Kat’s mysterious and cute friend in the past books, but this time I got to delve into his family and world. It was great to get to know his crazy family like we’ve gotten to know Kat’s.

I didn’t have to read this story every second of the day. I wasn’t hooked or attached to Kat or the side characters, except for Hale. At the start of the series Kat changed from being a thief to a Robin Hood, still a thief just for a better reason. Most of the side characters are thieves though, and I just don’t relate or feel attached to them. I still gave this book 4 stars because it was well written and an entertaining story.

There was a lot of excitement and a little more romance this time which I loved. If you loved Heist Society and Uncommon Criminals then you’ll love this final installment in the series. At least I think it’s the final book. It came to a nice and complete ending anyway. Enjoy!

Book Review: Double Crossed by Ally Carter

Title: Double Crossed
Author: Ally Carter
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Release Date: January 2013
Pages: 60
Series: Heist Society #2.5

Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training?

W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief?

There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup.

Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour.

When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help?

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.

My Thoughts:
This was a fun and quick read (novella-60 pages). I loved seeing Ally Carter’s two book series collide in this novella. Hale is my favorite character in the Heist Society series so that was really fun to see more of him. Macey is cool under pressure and –oh yeah– a teenage spy in training! So yeah she’s fun to read in action too.

An entertaining read full of action that got me exited for the release of the newest book in the Heist Society series, Perfect Scoundrel. Double Crossed free on Amazon so go get it now! Only as an eBook so if you don’t have an eReader download a version of an eReader to your computer or read the book straight from Ally Carter’s website. CLICK HERE.
