Synopsis from Goodreads: Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training?

W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief?

There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup.

Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour.

When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help?

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.


My Thoughts:
I'm a huge fan of both the Gallagher Girls series and the Heist Society series, so when I finally got around to reading this I was so excited. I think both series are fab and I can't choose which one I like best, so this is like a dream come true for me. It's only a short story, about 60 pages, so it took less than an hour to read, but I loved every minute of it.

Macey and Hale are two of my favourite characters from both series. I really liked getting to know Macey in Gallagher Girls and seeing her work together with Cammie, Liz and Bex in their missions, and Hale is just dreamy in Heist Society ;) I'm not even ashamed to admit that. It was great to see the two worlds interact and I seriously think that Macey and Hale should form a crime solving double act. It'd be awesome. Kat also makes an appearance which I wasn't expecting, and as per usual she was awesome too.

As it's only 60 pages and it's a fast-paced bit of fun, I don't really have that much to say about it apart from that if you've not read it but you're a fan of both or either series, you're definitely missing out, however you don't need to have read them to enjoy it anyway. I really hope that Ally writes more of these short stories, perhaps with Cammie and Kat as I think that would be a match made in heaven. Now I've run out of things to say, so just go read these books!
