Series: Heist Society #3
Genres: Young Adult
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.
The Heist Society books are one of my go to fun series. You really can’t go wrong with such a fun bunch of characters that steal things under impossible circumstances. These books are delightful and perfect escape reads.
Perfect Scoundrels is the third book in the series. While the plot lines are always somewhat similar, a big heist and all the planning leading up to it, they manage to stay refreshing and compelling always. What I loooved about this one is that there’s lots of Hale in it…and kissing. I love Hale and kissing so much. Sigh…
Perfect Scoundrels may not have been my favorite of the three books, but it was a utterly enjoyable read. I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of this series. If you haven’t picked them up you’re missing out.
