Teaser Tuesday - Double Crossed by Ally Carter

This week's teaser is a teaser from a teaser! When I requested this book from NetGalley, I didn't know it was just an eight chapter teaser! It's ok so far, but since I haven't read the Heist Society books, so I don't feel particularly inclined to go and search out the rest of the books. I love Macey and I want to see the spies, but Kat seems ... off putting. I don't know, I feel they're kind of stuck up. Perhaps there's too much reliance on the assumption of the reader being familiar with all the previous books.

So, the teaser is:

"What's is that?" Hale asked, leaning close to the vents. "Russian?"
"Albanian," Macey said, and again, motioned for him to be quiet.
"Now I suppose you're going to tell me they teach Albanian at your school."
"Only for extra credit." Macey leaned even closer, listened harder. "It's a job for hire," she translated. "They don't know how to get past the security system. 
This is way more than two sentences, but I love this dialogue!

And I suppose this is why I don't like Kat. I was introduced to Hale and Macey first, and I thought they would be a good couple, then in comes Kat, and her relationship with Hale doesn't even seem convincing to me (then again, I've never read Heist Society).

What do you think?

And what are your teasers this week?

Disclaimer: I got a copy of this teaser from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. I haven't read the whole book, so above is my honest opinion for the first eight chapters.


I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
