Life or Death? Not many people would choose death. But what if death chooses you? What if death doesn’t mean the end of your life, but the beginning?

For a Death Escort, death is life. Death is your paycheck. Death is your job.

And Charming is the best Escort the Grim Reaper has ever had.

But when you piss off the Reaper, being the best doesn’t matter. So Charming is assigne

Thank you Cambria Hebert for taking a chance in the NA world. This book was hot!

This is the second book in the Death Escort series but can be read as a stand alone too, thought the characters from book one appear and their story is also interwined a bit with this one. (Well, I suggest you read book #1 first). Anyways... this is the story of Frankie, a headstrong and full of life heroine and Charming, the best Death Esc

Four and a half stars: Supernatural meets sizzle in this spicy New Adult tale!

Frankie looks desperately at the clock, why wasn't it break time yet? Her body is screaming for a sugar fix! She is in her own personal Hell, which in this case happens to be the Alaska DMV. Her day is gets a whole lot worse when the next person strides up to counter. It is Charming, the same man who recently tried to kidnap and kill her best friend Piper. There is no way she is going to be polite and help him no matt

Before writing a review for Charmed I will tack in all of the things about Recalled that ticked me off. Because they are operative to understand why I liked Charmed so much better and I am too lazy to go write another review for Recalled.

Things that were wrong with Recalled Spoiler Alert!
-Dex took the Grim Reaper's deal a bit too enthusiastically without thinking of all the repercussions, i.e. the fact that he was NOT a killer.
-Piper's belief that being with Dex was like betraying the-boy-who-di

I was so blessed to be able to read and review Charmed!! I have been waiting on this book since I finished Recalled (book 1)...I loved every part of this story!! This book took my breath away, it has lots of twist and turns. You know how some series you pretty much know how it all turns out, or what is going down? Well this book keeps you on your toe's.....Charmed is the perfect title for this book, because you totally get charmed by Mr. Charming!!! And I love Frankie's character. She is so fies ...more

I liked Recalled (the first book in the escort series), and when I heard that this was going to be a series I was super excited. I love the new take of the Grim Reaper created by Cambria Hebert- it is a little creepy, but original :). I will admit that I did not like Charming in Recalled, because he was portrayed as the bad guy (which he was). But after reading C

If you've read Recalled, the first Death Escorts book, you may recall meeting Charming and Frankie. But if you have not read Recalled, have no fear, you don't need to in order to enjoy this book and get caught up in the storyline. Charming and Frankie's interactions in Recalled are reviewed enough for you to get on pace with the story. But I loved Recalled and it is the book that made me fall in love with this unique series, so if you haven't read it yet, I do recommend going back to it. You can ...more

Wow--what to say about a book about Death Escorts, the second installment at that. Well let me start with it was one hell of a rollercoaster ride. Each chapter from a different perspective, Charming's or Frankies'.
The man with a red aura/hue around him. We met him in Recalled, not so nice a fella, but then, if your life--scratch that death is based on killing I bet you would be like him too. You either love him or hate him--maybe a bit of both. With a name like his though, you're brought to won

Have you ever been Charmed? I can promise you this, no Prince Charming is like this great books Prince Charming.

Cambria takes Death Escorts to a whole new level.

If you've read bk 1: Recalled, you learned GR is a big dou---bag. Pg rated rated kiddies! Lol. Charming, sigh, at first glance he is jerkasarous. But w/ his "charm" I wondered if there was anything deeper. I mean some would think hot men are damaged somehow if they act like "what's in men's underpants". In this case, SO DAMN TRUE.

Be ready to swoon! In my personal opinion everybody needs a little Charming in their life!

We get our first look at the amazingly sexy Charming in Recalled the first Death Escorts novel. Although you do not have to read Recalled to read Charmed, I would strongly recommend it. You will be able to better understand certain referances in the book better.

Charming has it all. Money, cars, multiple houses, and any woman he could set his sights on. He made one mistake though. He has pissed off his boss

You get caught or put in jail, I won't come get you. I'll let you rot in a cell until your body dies or you get out, and then I'll come get you... to Recall you. Basically, if you do anything but complete the job, life as you know it is over." Charming is well an interesting character we learn that there are many sides to h ...more

Charmed is the story of the aptly named ‘Charming’ a soul who works as an assassin for the Grim Reaper. Charming is the best at what he does. In fact he is too good and when he happens to upset the grim reaper he finds himself having to prove just how good he can be to save himself from recall.

So how hard can killing one girl be?

Love it or hate it?

I really loved this. I was lucky enough to read Recalled before reading Charmed and so I had the pleasure of meeting Charming and getting to know jus

After reading Recalled, I was sure I totally disliked Charming. Then Cambria announced the name of her next book in the Death Escorts Series: Charmed. I thought there is no way this woman can make me like Charming. I mean he is a real jerk, thinks he is God’s gift to women, selfish, and not to mention a heartless killer. He annoyed the crap out me, much the same way he annoyed Frankie. But you know there is a thin line between love and hate. And boy did Frankie and Charming have a love/hate rela ...more

I read Recalledand was super excited to read Charmed. I enjoyed it more so only because it gave me a better understanding of who Charming was, and how he came to be the way he is, with Frankie still in the picture it was a delight. With old and new characters you will fall in love with this book.

I read Recalled and was blown away, as always when I read a Cambria Hebert Novel. I Read Charmed and fell in love with Frankie and Charming... the depth of personality Cambria Hebert puts into her characters keeps you wanting more. Charmed is a book that you can read time and time again and never get bored.

I liked the chemistry between Frankie and Charming/Oliver, they were pretty hot together but I just couldn't get past Pippers story and how she didn't get her happy ending. Sorry, but that really ruined this series for me. The Grimm Reaper didn't get his "death" like I was hoping. This guy killed innocent people and Frankie was going to kill the Target to help Charming get out if his deal?? Something wrong with justifying murder so the man you love can live? It just felt wrong in so many ways!! ...more
Actual rating: 4.5 stars.

I have to say, Charming was not my favorite character in Recalled. But I knew there was more to his story, and I'm such a sucker for mysterious men because I just want to unravel all their secrets.
And so just minutes after I lived the moment that defined my life forever... I also lived the moment that would forever define my death.
Charming has been a Death Escort for over ninety years, and he's the best killer out of all of G.R.'s employees. But that doesn't stop h

Review of Charmed (A Death Escorts Novel) by Cambria Hebert

Charmed is the second in this series, the first being Recalled. Recalled was the story of Dex and Piper. Piper features in this one also. The main characters in this story are Frankie and Charming, both of whom appeared in Recalled.

For those who have read Recalled you will already know a little about Charming. But this story will explain why he became a Death Escort, and how he got his name.

First off, I need to say that I received an ARC of Charmed from the author in exchange for an honest review. So, here goes…

Charmed is the second book in the Death Escorts series by Cambria Hebert. However, it can be read as a stand-alone if you haven’t read Recalled, which is the first book. If you have read Recalled, though, then what happens in Charmed will probably make a little more sense to you.

I found it a bit confusing for the first few chapters, but then I was able to work out what was going on and who the main characters were!

Holy red smoke Batman! That was like the hottest supernatural novel I have read yet!

I absolutely freaking loved Charmed. It was such an opposite of how Recalled was written but I loved both books. Recalled was book one in the series and was a "Contemporary Romance" which recommended anyone 14 and up could read. Dex and Piper's story left me wanting more and that is why I bought Charmed immediately but I also wished there was some type of

WOW!!! That’s all I really need to say! I am completely shocked and in love with this book! Anyways, let’s get on with the review.

I just want to start off saying that it was hard for me to picture myself liking this book after Charming’s introduction in Recalled. I really disliked him and really wanted his ass to be Recalled as well, but in all honestly I fell in love with the book in a few short chapters. I blame Frankie. At first I thought that she was going to be a minor character, just a lit

So, I met Charming in Book One, and I am pretty sure he scared me…. I was going to say a bad word, but I’ll try to hold off LOL. He’s a scary dude, no offense. And the funny thing is the word charming makes you think so sweet and fun and charismatic, except Charming is those things, but deadly and he doesn’t mean them! Like woah! Plus, there’s a few new characters and a few old characters, and I of course fanatically love this author, but I am loving this series as much as the Heven and Hell ser ...more

I have a love/hate relationship with this book since day 1. The reasons as follow: a) I didn't read the synopsis of this book until after I requested it, so I was excepting a whole different story; b) I vehemently disliked Charming as a character; c) Frankie kind of annoyed me in the last novel, so I didn't really see her as a heroine.

This is the second book in the Death Escorts Series and I love this one even more. I first met Charming in Recalled and thought he was arrogant and I couldn't stand him. Charmed is his story. You will be reunited with characters from Recalled in this story, so I recommend reading Recalled first.

Let me start out by saying this story was so so much better than the first book. As you may have been able to tell I am serious about characters in a story, they are a definite must have for me. I fell in love with Charming and Frankie in this book. Of course in the first book you knew Charming was going to be the bad boy that you hated to love and well in this book you couldn't help but to fall all over him. And Frankie stood out some in the first book

I was so excited to get an ARC of Charmed from Cambria Hebert!! After reading book one, Recalled, I was highly intrigued and loved the world she created about Death Escorts.

This also led me in to wondering if I would enjoy Charmed because after reading Recalled, he was not one of my favorite characters.

BUT...let me tell you, Cambria Hebert completely took me by surprise and brought the WHAM in the pages of Charmed.

So, as I said above, I wasn't too excited about reading about Charming. I mean, w

Well if you have read it then we all know what I mean when I say I was devastated, if you have not read it yet.... Well your going to have to cause I am not spilling the beans.

I read Recalled a few months ago and I absolutely loved it. It had one of those endings that you weren't sure to be happy or sad. I have so much respect for an author that can bring out such strong emotions like that from a book. I was so excited to learn about Charmed from her website.

Prince Charming is not so charming and his princess is sassy. Charming has worked for the Grim Reaper (G.R.) for a really long time and accumulated a lot of money and power. He’s selfish and totally a butthead. Frankie’s best friend, Piper from book #1 of The Death Escorts Series, stars in this fun, sometimes dark novel by Cambria Hebert. Compared to the first novel in the series, Charmed is full of smoldering looks, angst ridden love/lust, and sexy times.
