I'm gunna contradict myself in my first statement- this book is nothing like the Heven and Hell series we all love, and yet it's exactly the same- because this story has a completely different set of characters, a different world, different plot, and yet I've fallen love just like I did with Sam, Heven, Gemma, Cole, RILEY, with Dex and Piper. I feel the amount of time and feeling put into these characters and I feel how real they are, not just to me but how well Cambria has made them. I am ecstatic that Cam has finally put this out! Her and her secrets made me wit for this! Well, the wait was definitely worth it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Piper is your mostly normal girl, who is going to school to become a doctor and works at a diner to live. She is normal in all ways except she has a "little gift" which seems important enough to kill for. When someone saves her life, she can't help but feel in debt to this person and boy does she go on a wild ride trying to find out who he was. I like her in the whole sense of her realness. She is just like you and me which makes her so relatable!
Dex, well he's something special! He's had a really rough life before he lost it and got a new one- maybe one of the best and worst deals he's ever made. This character fascinated me! I liked that he felt he didn't deserve goodness because of his past, yet he desperately wanted it. For a bad guy, he sure is a good one. He's definitely made mistakes and he's really flawed, but everyone deserves a little forgiveness. He's thought process just kept me going because who wouldn't want the material things, but is it worth taking a life for it. He's definitely one of the coolest characters I've ever read.
To Cam, NEVER doubt your ability to write! You've made a wonderful story here! You've given me a whole new outlook on reapers, you've made me smile, cry, cringe, laugh, and cheer... All in just a few chapters!! There's to many emotions to list for this whole book! The writing is just as awesome as could be! I swear I felt those colors on my skin from the Aurora Borealis. And way to play out the bad guys... Both of them! You've got a friend, a fan, and most importantly a stalker for life in me! I demand you keep writing... Pretty please LOL!!! AN INCREDIBLELY PHENOMENAL 5 PAWS from me!! I will nicely state that you should hurry to gimme more please! ;)

OMGosh, I want more of Dexter and Piper!! Plain and simple, I need more of their story. Cambria, please tell me there is more to come for Dexter and Piper?!? Please. I have so many questions that were not answered in Recalled and they must be answered! :) Number one question, what significance does the color of their mist represent?!?!Was this review helpful?

Alright back to the review, this book was absolutely amazing. It was nice to read an original idea for once. I have never read a book or watched a movie involving the Grim Reaper where the reapers actually do the killing, which was a twist. I was instantaneously hooked while reading Recalled and really enjoyed the definitions at the beginning of each chapter. My favorite definition by far being for the word stupid!
Opening Recalled in my kindle app I was a little scared seeing how many chapters there was, but they were quick chapters alternating between Dex and Piper, which I really enjoyed as well. As a reader I was able to see inside both of the main characters minds, which was eye opening. I hate only knowing only one person's feelings not the others. (One great example, FSOG!) I was able to finish this story within two sittings, and I truly wish to read more in the future. I hope for more to come from this Death Escourts novel.
I would recommend Recalled to any of my reading friends, because they all enjoy a great book. My rating for Recalled is 5+ stars!!! Congrats on such an amazing piece of art, Cambria!!!

Ever wondered what it was like to be an Escort? Not just any escort but a Death Escort. Within the pages of Recalled you follow Dex and Piper, seeing from both their point of views..Dex newly dead yet brought back, to do one thing...kill. Initiation would have it that he must kill the one person he died to save. Will he end up killing her or will his heart win him over?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Piper is a sensitive, upon one touch, she can see the future. Distraught when someone saves her only to die, she soon finds herself drawn to a stranger that appeared at the diner she works at. Though left unsure why...Find out more within the depths of this awesome book!
I found myself incapable of pulling away from this book. Each chapter a different view of what was going on, so there was no chance of getting bored with just following Dex or Piper. Her writing style not only was different from most I've read, but it was unique and refreshing. Thoroughly enjoyed this read, and I look forward to reading many more of Cambria Hebert's books.

I couldn't put this book down. I read it every second I could until I finished it! Dex and Piper are great characters. The story was original and intriguing, sucking me in from the very beginning. I loved how everyone seemed to know Dex was good but himself. Piper was a great, strong female lead that I would love to read more about some day. I was disappointed in the ending only because I wanted the romantic ending, but in ways Piper still got it. I would love to know more about what happens when she ends up the same place he is.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Recalled had me hooked from page one through the end, leaving me wanting more!
It is not uncommon for me to get emotional over a good book. Recalled made me cry, more than just once, pulling at my emotional strings.
Cambria has a way of really building the anticipation on an emotional level. Piper and Dex have a seriously complicated relationship that really is love-hate. They each hate to love each other until it’s no longer a voluntary action. Watching their struggles with this building love made it feel real.
Real-life love doesn’t just happen with one look or one touch. It may start that way but love builds over time and that is exactly what Cambria created. A real love.
Way to go Cambria!
I cannot wait to read more about the Death Escorts!

I wish you could see my face right now....better yet, I wish you could see my reaction as I finished Recalled. #1. I'm f----g crying...again....over a book. #2. I think I may have broken my desk and/or foot from kicking it in frustration. My mouth is continually opening and closing like a fish out of water because I don't know what to say. I'm angry, sad and happy. I can't decide which emotion is the strongest but I will tell you that I want to punch Cambria Hebert in the face! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?! I can't frickin breath! I even went to Goodreads to read the blurb for the second book and what do you know, IT'S NOT THERE!! Can I get a bone? Something...any scrap of what's to come.Was this review helpful?

Recalled was fresh to death! Pun intended! For those of you that don't understand my Jersey slang, it basically means it was a fresh new concept. This is one of those books you want to read when you want a break from vampires, werewolves, shifters and whatnot. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire ride. My only complaint is that I wished there was more romance....what can I say? I'm a romance-a-holic! The cover is what tricked me into thinking there would be more romance. No worries though... I still thoroughly enjoyed it.

If given another chance at life, complete with the means to live
If given another chance at life, complete with the means to live well and not be concerned about survival after leading a life on the street, would you take it? What if that chance only came at the expense of taking the lives of others? Would you still want it? What if the first person's life you were told to take was that of someone you had just died to save? Would you be able to do it?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Dex and Piper's story is one of second chances, choices, growth, and healing. The author easily drew me into their lives from the very beginning. I adored how each chapter began with a word and its definition, a word which foreshadowed what was to come within the chapter itself. Each chapter was told from either Dex or Piper's point of view, alternating. This gave such amazingly wonderful insight into both characters, it was impossible not to become emotionally invested in them.
By the end of the book I have to admit the tears were flowing freely down my cheeks. I couldn't seem to stop them, even after I was finished. I know that it is a book that will stay with me for quite some time.
Bravo Cambria. You absolutely "rocked it out".

Recalled is an emotional roller coaster with many twists and turns that had me guessing and gripping my seat. This is the first book I've read by this author, but I'm hooked. I'll definitely be checking out her other books while impatiently waiting for book two to come out! The ARC of Recalled by Cambria Hebert was provided to me by the Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
