Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story (Gallagher Girls, #5.5; Heist Society, #2.5)

Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story - Ally Carter NOTE: This e-story is FREE. Download it from B&N, Amazon, or spiesandthieves.com (or a variety of other retailers, listed at the site).This was fun, and I loved getting inside the heads of two of my favorite secondary characters from Ally Carter's books, Macey and Hale, and watching them slowly realize that neither of them is what they seem. However, I couldn't help but think that this story would have been much improved with the addition of flirting, rather than the conspicuous, "SORRY I'M NOT FLIRTING, I AM TAKEN" dialogue we got instead. When does Macey get to hook up? How come secondary characters rarely get any love? :(
