Dying at the hands of a psycho was a shock. Having my life returned to me by an angel was incredible. Being named a Supernatural Treasure and being given Sam as my guard was pretty darn awesome. Acquiring a debt for it all - well, I should have seen it coming. Now here we are, fighting demons from hell, caring for a boy that I just don't trust and traveling to faraway plac ...more

Five stars! The sequel is even better! Full of surprises and secrets!

For Heven, having her life returned comes with a heavy price. She is the guardian of a secret treasure map that must be returned to the catacombs of Rome. If this scroll falls into the wrong hands, it would mean chaos, war and demons plaguing the Earth. Thankfully, she is not alone in her epic quest. At her side and always her guardian is Sam. Her boyfriend and protector, a boy she loves more than her own life. Together they in

SUMMARY (50 words or less)

I read the first book a while back. But when the opportunity came for me to read, I jumped on it. This was a solid continuation of the series. I almost feel like we’ve come full circle. The cliffhanger is a little dicey. I want to
I got a copy for review in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this book! I really enjoyed book 1, but this book is so much better. We already are introduced to the world in book 1 and it seems the real story starts in this book. And the story is great, I didn't want to put this book down.

What I really love about this series are the characters. They develop so much in this series, you see heven growing and geting stronger. But also the relationships between the characters are so nicely done. T
Actual rating - 4.25

This was another great read.

I liked Heven and Sam again in this one, and i loved them together.
There were a couple of characters i didn't like - Hevens mum, Kimber and Logan. I really liked Kimber in the last one, but in this one she irritated me. It was revealed why she was acting like she was later in the book, but she drove me nuts before then! Hevens mum really, really annoys me, and i just found Logan shifty.

There was plenty of revelations in this one that i didn't see

My Review:
Holy cow, Batman! Hold on to your tights! This book is CRAZY GOOD!!! Okay, so I'm a dork. Now you know. Let's move on...

Cambria Hebert hits her full stride in book 2 of her bewilderingly creative Heven and Hell series and you do not want to miss out on the action, oh and the romance, oh and the suspense...

As much as I've loved everything up to this point, this book brings it all together and sets it afire. I'll admit I felt
Veronica Morfi
In the second book of the Heven and Hell series, Sam and Heven are faced with the aftermath of getting the scroll and are burdened by their mission to return it to Rome. Heven is getting attacked by demons after the scroll almost everyday and Sam is trying to figure out what's wrong with his brother, Logan, who just found him. A lot of new characters are intoduced, fallen angels, witches, a dragon and quite a few more demons. From the catacombs of Rome to the darkest places of Hell, this book re ...more

If you cannot breathe, I will breathe for you. If your heart will not beat, mine will beat harder. If you do not live, neither will I.

Heven and Sam have been through so much in their struggles against evil, but they aren't done yet. Being tasked to return a treasure to its rightful spot in Italy, Heven and Sam struggle with family, friends, secrets, and deceptions on top of everything else. Change is coming everywhere they look and everyone's mask is cracking. Can Heven and Sam hold it together
Dale Ibitz
As with the first book one, this 2nd book is still simply sweet. For folks who love stories with super-sweet romance, this book is for you. A lot of innocent kissing and hand-holding. You know those couples in high school that can't live for a moment without the other or they're just going "to die!"... ? That's Heven and Sam.

Again, straight-forward plot, no real surprises except for maybe one. Sam's brother, Logan, just plain creeps me out. And yes, that's a good thing! I like to have some kind

This is book 2 in the ‘Heven and Hell’ series. **Warning** unavoidable spoilers for book 1 ‘Masquerade’.
So charade starts off where ‘Masquerade’ left off. Heven is now a supernatural treasure. She’s guarding the treasure map (scroll) and trying to avoid demons, whilst working at the ice-cream parlor and trying to spend time with Sam. Sam is still working multiple jobs whilst trying to look after Heven and his brother Logan, and things are still stra

Would you risk everything, even your life if need be—to save the one you love?

For Sam and Heven, the main characters in Cambria Hebert’s thrilling Heven and Hell series, life means nothing if they can’t spend it together. In “Masquerade,” the stage is set for these two characters to plunge into danger and despair so they can eventually find happiness together, and then things escalate as good and evil vie for their souls in Hebert’s latest release, “Charade.” Sam’s younger brother, Logan, adds

*review to come along with Blog Tour on June 1st!*

I just adore this series. I do. The characters, the drama, mystery, plot, suspense, the romance, the danger, gah, all of it!
I would like to just say that this is a serious that you have to try but I can't because, that just isn't enough. You need to know the greatest that is Cambria's writing.

Truly though, Cambria has created an amazing world with characters that feel real and are people that you grow to care about and love after the first few pa

Ok, guys, this book has a lot going on and like 80% of it is gonna grab you by the bolls and spin you so fast that you’ll forget your own name. I say this in the best sense of the expression. This is something good, even though it sounds terrible, you know, with the bolls and all. But, trust me, it's a really good thing. I love when a book surprise me this way. But, unfortunately, I’ll have to keep a lot of the things in secret, cose the fun about it is in find out for our
This series just gets better and better. This series by far is the best series for me from author Cambria Hebert. Once I started reading this series it was definitely hard to put it down to do something else. I absolutely love all of the character in the story but of course Sam, Heven, Gran and Cole are my favorites but new comer Gemma has a way of making her way into your heart also. There are secrets that come out in this book that you won’t see coming and Sam’s reaction to it will definitely ...more

Wow, this is such an awesome series. There are so many twists and turns it made it hard to put down. The connection with Cole totally makes sense now, but the "powers" that Heven gets aren't that cool (Heven agrees with me) but they are what she needs which is cool. I like Gemma and would love to hear more of her story, she is kick ass. Heven finally grows up a bit and isn't as damsel in distress, which was kind of annoying but Sam is too overprotective and wants her to just run ever
This books's pace was so fast from last ones...and this has sooo many twist and turns..
So many characters showing their true self..Cole?(didn't expected that!)...but man it was awesome and also suspenseful..and i was trying to keep it up with it at every chapter's end.
I know that it will not be so easy for Heven to store the map safely with ease(but one can hope right?).
The end left me with wanting more.I always knew Heven was a strong character and i think i will see her true self in next book!
LOVED,LOVED,LOVED,LOVED,LOVED,LOVED, this book! The story line was original and so many things were going on that it was sometimes overwhelming but NEVER in a bad way. The strength that Heven has is only matched by her love and commitment to Sam as is his to her. It was good to see another side of Cole in this book as well as Logan and to meet Gemma. I CANNOT wait until the next book comes out, the ending left me wanting more...such a cliff hanger!
Wow...can i just say i finish this book in one day, Now i want to know what happens in the next book, Now it's haven's turn to go save sam from heil, i can't wait to find out how it goes, I am ready for the third book, i had a feeling something bad was about her mom's boyfriend. your really a great author!!! i would recommend this book to a friend!!!
In the first book, Heven was a damsel in distress.

Now she's a warrior in training.

Gotta love that.
This review is of a copy from the author I got for an honest review.

Heven and Sam thought the worst was over when Sam chased the rest of the Hellhounds out of town but they were wrong. Heven's new task set out for her by a messenger from Heaven sets a whole new path of danger before the two. Add to this Heaven's new abilities, Sam's new charge, Kimber's spiraling jealousy and Cole's confusing interest in Heven and you have a great setup for a second book.

Heven loses a lot of support from those c

I loved this book. I didn't realize it at the time that this was the 2nd book in the series so I read Masquerade first. What a delight both books were. I am looking forward to the third installment. Sam and Heven are wonderful together and I can't wait to see what happens with Gemma and Cole. The story itself is very intriquing but touches on Heven's vulnerabilty considering her attach. Her mother is not a character that I like very much but it seems she has some redeeming qualities. The series ...more
I really enjoyed book one, Masqerade, so I've been looking forward to reading Charade, and I have to say it was even better than the first!
Right away, there's a lot of mystery surrounding the book, new characters and strange happenings galore and just as I was starting to think I wanted some answers I was hit with a huge twist that had me gasping so loud on the bus I attracted some strange looks! Masquerade really was a bumpy ride from start to finish and I was hooked all the way through.

I loved the first book in this series and couldn't wait to read the next one. Charade had me hooked as soon as I started reading it. Charade picks up where the first book left off with Heven and Sam trying to return the scroll to its rightful location. Heven has grown to be a character I really love. She has become so much stronger and comfortable in her own skin.

Sam continues to be a dream. He does so much to be better than just a hellhound and focuses on keeping Heven safe. They fit so well to
Heven’s life may have been saved but it means she now has a very large debt to repay. As the guardian of a list of everyone who will bring good to humanity everyone in Hell will now do anything to get hold of her and the treasure she carries. The only people she can rely on for help are her friends but as they are starting to act weird can she really trust them.

Charade is brilliant, it is even better than Masquerade so if you liked the first you will love the second. I really liked the new chara

Awesome. Hell. Wow. Feels, so many feels..

This is not really a review. This is the explanation why a book I almost DNF'd turned out to be one of the better books I read this year.

Because Cambria Hebert is insane. And I love her for it

She takes risks in her plots, ones out of our wildest imaginations and that is why her stories actually stand out and work for me.

To say I was disappointed with Charade, at the beginning was an understatement. I was mighty pissed. Why?

Charade was a really nice sequel, the characters were pretty well developed, I love the dynamic between Cole and Sam – especially now that Gemma has come around. I never liked Kimber so I was slightly annoyed by how much Heven wanted to trust her even though that was obviously not a good idea. The main characters were just flawed enough to be realistic and still likeable, I love that Sam wasn’t always Mr. Perfect, he screwed up sometimes and he was able to admit it and Heven was able to forgi

I am really enjoying this series! I love all the twists and turns that keep popping up. Because I really connected with Heven in the first book, even though this one was in multiple POVs like book 1, so I saw this book through her eyes. It was pretty powerful. I felt her love, her distrust, and her stress. I was also pretty paranoid while reading Charade. I felt like everyone had something to hide. I didn't fully trust a lot of people in the book.

Heven has so much going on in her life. I really

You should all know that I am a huge fan of Ms. Hebert. She has also become a great friend of mine via internet. I will meet her one day LOL but I need to say I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Hell, I love all her books. Her novellas are great as well, but this one takes the cake! :)

I could not put this book down. Book 1, you get to meet the characters and learn who they are and what they are about, but this book is so much more in depth. Especially adding Logan to the mix. After finding out all those secre
