Summary (from MTV's Hollywood Crush):
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.
I absolutely adore Ally Carter's Heist Society series (and her Gallagher Girls one too!), so I was really excited to see the cover for Perfect Scoundrels. Ally Carter's books are a breath of fresh air on the YA market because you just simply cannot find any other books with a storyline like the ones she consistently writes. And I'm sure Perfect Scoundrels will be no exception!
I cannot wait to see what sticky situations Katarina and her crew will find themselves in, especially when everything has become more personal with Hale being a potential mark in someone else's schemes. And who am I kidding? I need to see more of Kat and Hale together!
What do you think about the cover for Perfect Scoundrels? I really like how it's just as fun, yet elegant, as the previous two books in the series. And if you take a closer look, you can see Hale's reflection in Katarina's shades!
