Double Cross by Ally Carter

Source: Netgalley
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.

I love Ally Carter's Heist Society and Gallagher Girls series. I was dying to read a story where both of them met up and this is exactly what I wanted. Instead of focusing on the main characters, the story centers around Hale and Macey. I really like them as characters in the series and found their points of view to be interesting and similar to the ones found in both series. The plot is pretty fast since it is a novella. I read it in one sitting. I think it was a very original approach to novellas from the ones that I have. The writing was also fun and exciting. Overall, I suggest this book if you enjoy either series or what a quick read to figure out if it is right for you.
