Waiting on Wednesday: Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I am in love with the Heist Society series! It's Ocean's Eleven meets Simon Elkeles. Perfect Scoundrels is the third installment in Ally Carter's wildly popular thief-based fiction. Its February 5 release date is just in time for Valentine's Day and I for one am really hoping my hubby decides to gift this to me. Check out the synopsis below

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.
From Goodreads

I love this crew! There are several personalities to chose from and no one disappoints. Even better is the chemistry between Kat & Hale. Their bickering and good-natured ribbing is simply a thin veil that keeps them protected from their true feelings. You'll have to pick up the book to see what I mean, but be sure to read the first two books to enjoy all the gang's shenanigans.

What are you waiting on this week?

Oh yeah, there had better be plenty of Hale! Did you see the awesome news about her e-book mashing together the worlds of her two series? Check out Double-Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Novella.
