-Hayz's Review-
I give this book four stars, I really liked it but I thought so much was happening. And I was a little disappointed that it just said Georgiana Darcy was married, and Kitty had three children. I thought it moved to fast. I would have liked to read more about those, but other than that it was a really good book.
I really love these books and I can't wait for the next.

Love Under Cover

Love Under Cover
Jessica Brody
2009

Can a former fidelity inspector tear herself away from her old calling for the sake of the perfect guy, or is the temptation to conduct love under cover just too strong?
Jennifer Hunter never saw herself as the relationship type. After all, she'd spent the last two years of her life as an undercover fidelity inspector, hired to test men's faithfulness--not exactly the kind of job that lends itself to intimacy. But when Jamie Richards walked into her life, everything changed, and Jennifer vowed to trade in her undercover lifestyle for something more normal. That's why she formed the Hawthorne Agency: five full-time fidelity inspectors, hired to carry out Jennifer's mission while she manages the process from a safe (relationship-saving) distance. Jen's business is booming, and just when it seems things can't possibly get any better, Jamie proposes. Despite her lifelong issues with trust and commitment, Jen says yes. But can a woman who's seen nothing but failed marriages ever come to terms with tying the knot herself? And when Jen receives a frantic phone call from one of her employees in trouble, she's forced to make a choice, one that lands her in an all-too-familiar place--a strange hotel room, kissing another man. And she knows that nothing will ever be the same.

Gone

Gone
Lisa McMann
2010

He reaches toward her, his fingers black and bloody, his eyes deranged, unblinking. Janie is paralyzed. His cold hands reach around her neck, squeezing tight, tighter, until Janie has no breath left. She's unable to move, unable to think. As his grasp tightens further around Janie's neck, his face turns sickly alabaster. He strains harder and begins to shake.
Janie is dying.
She has no fight left in her.
It's over.

OPEN YOUR EYES.

Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she'd made her peace with it. But she can't handle dragging Cabel down with her.

She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He's amazing. And she's a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves: She has to disappear. And it's going to kill them both.

Then a stranger enters her life--and everything unravels. The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she'd ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out. . . .

-Hayz's Review-
I really enjoyed this book, I thought this book had a good ending to the series. What I really liked about this book was that it just didn't drop people, ya know when all of a sudden you don't know what happened to someone. It told what happened or what is to be of them. (I know that it is lame to put in a review, but it is important to me.)
I think you should read this book because it was a short fun series, it didn't drag on it had the right amount of books, 3. Also they were easy reads.

Heist Society

Heist Society
Ally Carter
2010

"Either we're a team or we aren't.
Either you trust me or you don't."
Hale took a step toward her.
"What's it going to be, Kat?"

It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth; in a moment, Kat didn't have a clue what to say. I can't do this without you sounded trite. What they were doing was too big for a simple Please.
"Hale, I--"
"You know what? Never mind. Either way, I'm in, Kat." He seemed utterly resolved as he slipped on his sunglasses. "I'm all in."

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the Louvre . . . to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria . . . to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own-- scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.
Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. Bu he has good reason: a powerful mobster's priceless art collection has been stolen and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled off this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help.
For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and, hopefully, just enough talent to pull of the biggest heist in her family's (very crooked) history--and with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

-Hayz's Review-
