Perfect Scoundrels

Book: Perfect Scoundrels
Series: Heist Society #3
Author: Ally Carter

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 son 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. 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-Goodreads

Review: Like the first two books in the Heist Society series, Perfect Scoundrels was a quick, fun read. Unlike them, it had a darker feel to the plot and seemed to focus more on just the 'heist.'  This was good as we delved into Hale's family dynamic and  we meet several new characters such as Kat's dad (loved him!). My only beef with this book is that the book starts with Kat and Hale as a couple and then they quickly break up. Um..I'm wondering when the relationship actually happened because it definitely wasn't defined in book 2. 

Grade: 4/5
