it was amazing

I am so excited right now I am just squealing all over the house lol, today, in the mail I received my signed copy of Masquerade and, I get to bring to all of you my review of not only this amazing book with its oh so gorgeous cover as well as its amazing author. You see the reason I am so excited about not only this book, as well as the author, Cambria Hebert, a very great friend of mine and I am so proud of her with the release of her new book, or should I say 3 books, yup that's right 3 books, I will tell you about the others shortly.

Cambria and I met last March not long after I had found the Goodreads website and we became fast friends, she was one of my very first few that had started to follow my new blog and gave me so much support and encouragement to keep going, even though I had no idea what I was doing lol. We had none the less became fast friends, Cambria has a huge heart, and one of the nicest ladies I have been blessed to call friend, so when it was her time to get her blog up and running, I returned the favor and helped her the best I could, we had so much fun making and fixing our blogs together and over time I learned she was in the process of writing a book. I couldn't wait for when it would be released as I knew it would be the most amazing book, Cambria emailed me from time to time and ask my opinion on what I thought of the blurb or the unfinished pic for the cover or the look for her new website. Cambria, you will never know how much that meant to me that you wanted my opinion. Thank You for including me in one of the most important events in your life!

On to my review, after reading the blurb for this book, I knew it was going to be a great one, I just didn't realize HOW good until I started reading. BEFORE, Heven was a very happy, popular, normal teenage girl who had every reason to believe that life was going to be good, until one event in her life changed everything, after coming home from the library one night she was attacked and woke up in the hospital, the biggest problem.......Heven can't remember how or what attacked her, and how she got the scars on her face she now works so hard to hide from everyone. Was it an animal that attacked her, she doesn't remember anything. Then Sam shows up, the new kid at school, who doesn't seem to notice her scars, but what Heven doesn't know is Sam has his own secrets that could destroy Heven and how she feels for Sam.

Cambria's storytelling takes you right into the story, I love when a great book can do this to me, it makes me feel like I'm right there with the characters, her way of setting up the scenes, describing how Heven feels, what she has been through, the pain, sadness, helplessness, her anxiety, you can feel it right along with her, so much emotion has been put into this story. Usually I find a story that is told from different POV's sometimes hard to follow, but the way Cambria has done this is fantastic I had no problem following. At first when reading Heven seems like a weak character but as you keep reading you come to understand why but as the book goes on and Heven comes to terms with who she is you just cant help but to love her. I love Sam, he's so sweet and oh so gorgeous :) who makes Heven feel beautiful now like she did BEFORE when life was normal.

If your looking for a book that takes you on a wild ride, this is the book to pick up, twists and turns you will absolutely not see coming and make you gasp out loud, the fighting scenes are freakin amazing, a slow to start novel which is not a bad thing as it sets you up with a smashing huge finish with passion and steamy scenes, you will not want to miss out on this book, I loved everything about it, such originality and left me wanting the next in the series RIGHT NOW LOL. I hope you will all run to get your copy of this amazing book, and enjoy it as much as I did. Enjoy everyone!!!!
