DescriptionKatarina 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.Praise for PERFECT SCOUNDRELS: """With razor-sharp dialogue, twists and tight squeezes galore, and one quick-thinking heroine, Carter doesn't miss a step as she continues to entertain her numerous fans." -"Booklist" Praise for UNCOMMON CRIMINALS: "An exciting, entertaining read with a fast-moving plot, a spot of romance, and a strong and smart female protagonist.

Daring, delicious, but filled with a sense of purpose."-"School Library Journal" "With a smart and stealthy heroine who should appeal to Gallagher Girls fans, Carter's story is fast-paced and popcorn-ready.

Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3) by Ally Carter
What I liked:
I absolutely loved this book! I believe it to be the best yet in the Heist Society Series. We were finally able to learn more about Hale's family and his background. There were many moments where I literally screamed at Hale or Kat (and that is something I don't do often because I don't want to look like a crazy person). Something that I really liked that Ally Carter did was that she completely surprised me with the last twenty pages of the book. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so I won't say anything but this was the first book in the Heist Society Series that I was not able to guess the ending. Ally Carter was just bumped up to VIP status in my list of best authors out there.
What I disliked:
Honestly, it took me a little while to get into it. I don't know if it was because I just so busy I couldn't enjoy reading a book or because it was slow at the beginning but after the first 100 pages there was no stopping me.
Perfect Scoundrels was a really fun book to read and I truly enjoyed. I can always count on Ally Carter to give me a book that is fun to read and tackles issues that many teenagers are facing today in their everyday lives. She knows how to make heavy subjects like death and insecurity more approachable and easier to tackle. Basically, she makes life easier. by Veronica Robles
exciting with a little romance
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!
