GoodRead - Double Crossed

I feel I have to admit something to you lovely people who, for the most part, have read or have heard of Ally Carter. *whispers* I have never really heard of her before I watched a vlog review of Perfect Scoundrels (the third book in the Heist Society series). DON'T SHOUT AT ME, BOOK BLOGGERS/READERS OF THE WORLD! I have been aware of Ally Carter. Just not well enough. I mean, I always thought her Gallagher Girls series was about vampires, not spies. I have no idea why. I always just thought it was.

Anyway, let's get back on track with Double Crossed. After watching the video, I found out that Ally Carter had written a free novella that crossed both her series. Trying to hunt it down as a bit of a challenge but then I found it via Amazon (I tried to find it on the official UK site, but it was really hard to find it) and then I read it over the course of three days.

When a society gala, spy-in-training Macey and master thief Hale are forced to join forces when masked men with guns turn the gala into a hostile situation...

It was a fun, fast read. And it's free! The perfect taster for Ally's writing and for the characters of both series. This was light and fluffy - a beach read. And with all the books I read, a beach read is sometimes a good time. And with this, there's a sample of the first few chapters of Heist Society and I'd Tell You That I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You and, if I'm going to be honest, I much prefer Heist Society. There's something about thieves that seem to appeal to me (what that says about me, I dread to think!) but yes, I really enjoyed this. I wish it was a bit longer, but I have Heist Society in my To Read Pile so I'm quite looking forward to entering this world... Will probably be reading in the next few weeks so expect a review coming soon...


  1. I tried to get this on my Kindle but it went a bit weird so I'll definitely try to download it straight from Amazon now and not Netgalley.

    Heist Society is a really good read and I hope you enjoy it. I think the HS novels are for an older audience than the GG ones. They're definitely written in a maturer style. Glad you liked it! :)

  2. I loved this book and think it's a great idea to get a taste of both series! I'm glad you're going to read Heist Society I adore that series and those characters so much, I haven't read GG before but really should at least give it a try with how much I loved this and HS!
