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 love the Heist Society series but when it comes to reading books in a series I sometimes get bored with the characters after reading the second book so it takes me a while to either start reading the next book or it takes me a while to finish the next book in the series so when I finished reading Perfect Scoundrels I was surprised that it took me around a week to read this book (my normal reading rate per book).

I'm not going to lie and say that this book was totally awesome as I did prefer book 2 over book 3 and I think this was because I love Hale and he wasn't in this one as much even though the book was about him and because they didn't do a heist like they have in the previous books. Yes they talked and planned to rob a bank to get back something that had been stolen from Hale's Company but they didn't do it. Kat decided to cave and decided to let the man get away with it (yes I know the guy got arrested in the end but still no heist).

We got to get to know the Hale family and finally meet them but we get to do this under sad circumstances. I love Hale but I hate the fact that he was sad all the time and horrible to Kat. At first I was sure that Hale was dating another girl as well as Kat which made me mad because you can tell from book 1 that Kat and Hale belong together.

Even though Hale pushed Kat away after the sad news of his grandmothers death she was the perfect girlfriend and was there all the time to support him and to help him along with her "family" which shows that you don't need to be related by blood to be family.

We find out that Hale's life is more messed up than we ever thought, his family are stuck up  and only care about money after the death of Hales grandmother but Hale is genuinely upset about her death. The only person who really cares about Hale is Marcus the butler and it would seem that his grandmother also cared about him leaving him the company.

I love this series and I need another Hale fix so I am hoping that Ally decides to continue with this series.
