Pretty Scoundrels (Heist Society #3)

"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 loved Pretty Scoundrels so much more than Uncommon Criminals and I think a lot of it has to do with the emotional elements that are really in this book. Especially, with meeting Hale's family and seeing his progression as a character and the progression in his and Kat's relationship. It was nice to see some progression in Kat as well.

The other thing I liked was that I really didn't know where the con was going to go this time and I really felt like I was apart of the team this time. My heart sinking at failed attempts, my heart racing during the heist and my heart cheering at the successes.  Pretty Scoundrels was a great book in the series and I cannot wait to read more and continue the progression.
