“AVALANCHE:” Is a full length contemporary romance novels and is the first book in Cambria Herbert’s ‘BearPaw Resort’ Series. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’

In this we meet Bellamy & Liam

The ‘Prologue’ got it’s hooks into me early, Bellamy had gotten a phone call out of the blue from her father asking her to meet him at his place, she hasn’t seen or heard from him in years and it will be the last time she w

Avalanche is a novel that proofs yet again why Cambria Hebert is one of my favorite authors. Starting a new book by a favorite author always gets me excited and a little nervous. I’m a little nervous, because my expectations are high after loving the author’s other books. Avalanche exceeded those expectations. I don’t know how Cambria Hebert does it every time, but I hope she never stops writing these fantastic books. This book was unique, touching, romantic and suspenseful.

I love love love Ava
1,5 stars.

I expected more from this for some weird reason. It started out really good: an interesting backstory with the girl being in a witness protection program until she was found and had to run. She even escaped to an interesting setting and I was ready for a slow buildup where the feelings and the tension between Bellamy and Liam would steadily come back...

But no-pe, BAM. Instalove.

(view spoiler)
Apart from the (very petty) complaint that the brochure-like cover does not match what the story seemingly promises, I was actually intrigued by ‘Avalanche’ and its premise.

Past the excellent opening chapter however, I couldn’t get past the idea of the unbelievable instalove that Cambria Hebert rolled out in both Bell/Liam’s very short history or that they remembered it as true love 8 years later after an accidental meeting. Instead, their connection (both present and remembered) felt romantici
Loved it! I was in the mood for a good new adult romance and this was perfect. I love Cambria Hebert’s Hashtag series (well Romeo & Rimmel’s story – it is one of my all-time favorites) and Avalanche is very reminiscent of that. Liam is an amazing hero. Protective and caring. He always puts Bellamy first and never doubts his feelings towards her. Bellamy is a very likeable heroine. She is sweet, strong and just as protective of Liam as his is of her. I also really liked that it was set in a ski r ...more

Cliffhanger, romantic suspense. Lovable MC's.
Fun, enjoyable read. Will be reading the next installment as soon as it's available.

Cambria Hebert never ceases to amaze me with her storytelling abilities. She writes these books as if she lived these plots herself and makes her characters seems like they are personal friends. I have been a long time fan of the authors work because of all this, and will continue to read her books as long as she writes them. If you like your books suspenseful, romantic, and absolutely swoony, then you need this boo

Don't get me wrong, I loved this book...but I think Romeo has ruined me for other male characters that Cambria brings alive with her books. So Romeo don't worry, you're still my number one. 😉

At first when I started reading this book I haven't expected that it would be so angsty and have suspense direction. But past that first part it becomes a second chance romance and at the end they intertwine. As always I loved leading male character,Liam. Cambria knows how to write her men. ♥️

Well Charlie is my favorite, Alex in close second. I loved the story. I haven't read any books about pro snowboarders so this popped that little cherry. At times the two MCs were a little to attached to each other but I didn't care.

I fell for these two just like I did in with the Hashtag series. I have Blizzard download but I might wait till FrostBite is out just in case of the horrid cliffhanger. Hopefully there's not a cliffhanger but I don't want to wait a week from now if there is. I'm waiti

Cambria Herbert never fails to entertain. No matter the mood or book funk I happen to be in, I’m always confident that when I start something new from her, I’m going to enjoy it. And I did.

But, I didn’t love it. It lacked the connection I normally get from Cambria’s other H’s and h’s. I don’t think I got enough backstory or depth between Bellamy and Liam for me to accept them as “the ones that got away”. They knew each other for all of two weeks (before they parted ways for 8 years),

It's impossible not to get pulled in right from the start with Cambria Hebert's newest release!

The moment this book was first announced I couldn't freaking wait to get my hands on another sure to be incredible story from the extraordinarily talented Cambria Hebert because her stories are always one of a kind and addictively captivating. Let me just say that this story totally exceeded every single one of my expectations that I had going in. I cou

Oh my gosh! WHY have I waited so long to read this beauty?

I’ve read a few Cambria books and I’ve always been hooked but this one, this one was so much more than I ever expected.

Bellamy is an incredible person. She’s running from something that happened in her past. She’s always nervous and always looking around and waiting for something to happen but even through all that the things she goes through is terrible. She’s strong and doesn’t give up no matter what.

Whenever a new Cambria Hebert book comes out, I pounce on it faster than you can say: "the mob is after me."


Okay, let's backtrack a bit. I'm still a bit confused from my flight so I'll try to make sense of my thoughts, but bear with me.

I went into this book thinking it would be a standalone, while it was not. It would put many people off, but for a series lover like me was just peachy. Still, it got me confused when around 96% nothing was really resolved. Still, now that I know, it's no big

It's official. I AM TRASH FOR CAMBRIA HEBERT BOOKS! Kay thanks bye.

Kidding! But seriously, I have absolutely fallen in love with every. single. book. I have read of hers. She writes the best stories and has the most absolutely amazeballs charming alpha men MCs. And don't even get me started on her female MCs. They are ALWAYS bad-fucking-ass. And if you know me, you know I L O V fucking E a badass female lead. And Bellamy is no different.

Leave it to Cambria Hebert to create a series with a swoony, alpha and almost perfect hero. I was missing this type of NA since her Hashtag series finished and this one, was definitely a very good comeback.
The friendships with the secondary characters are always great and although the heroines always need a little bit more "protecting" that I like (I prefer my heroines when can stand up for themselves and don't need the hero for anything, they choose to have him close.) but they're always likab

Eh, 2.5 stars.

This was okay. I liked the idea of the plot, a little bit of suspense mixed with romance, but I didn't feel like it completely worked? I didn't find the characters or their second chance romance all that intriguing, so I skimmed at parts. To me, the characters felt very stereotypical NA, and I wouldn't be able to pull them out of hat if I mixed them in with a bunch of other NA protagonists. Sure, if you want something quick to read, by all means, go for it. This one and the writing

Avalanche is the first Hebert book I have read since the #Hashtag series ended. I loved Romeo and Rimmel so much I was afraid to move on. But, I finally got over my fear and dove into Avalanche. I am NOT disappointed.

Bellamy witnesses a murder and ends up in witness protection. This works for 2 years, but her cover is blown and she is on the run. She runs to a place she loved as a teen-BearPaw Resort. She is hoping HE isn't there, but of course he is. He is Liam, her first love and the guy

Here's the thing... I really enjoyed this book. I was sucked in and didn't want to put it down. I read half of it on a flight back home from vacation and continued reading in the car and at home. I loved the couple, the story, everything... but... I wasn't looking for a series. This is my fault. I wasn't paying attention. While this book doesn't end on a cliffhanger, it's definitely not even a HFN ending IMO (although the couple is together at the end). And while I thoroughly enjoyed this world ...more

I took so long to finish this book because I'm on vacation and came to USA (Chicago). Had so little time to read because me and my husband spent so long outside knowing the city that when we came back to hotel exhaustion took me away from the book...
I really liked it and I'm a little bit afraid of what comes next....😬😬😬😬
Will wait to come back to Brazil to read the second book....

Another brilliant book by Cambria Hebert!

It's not really a big secret that Cambria is one of my all-time favorite authors. There is just something about her stories and characters that pulls you in and you can't do anything but continue reading and falling in love with the world and people she creates. I want to be a part of that world.

The same thing happened with Avalanche. Liam and Bellamy are perfect. You can feel the chemistry and raw attraction they feel for each other. You can feel the ac

Boarding? Dogs? Danger? Lost Love?
All the stars for Cambria Hebert’s most recent release!

“I vowed to never return, even to get back the chunk of my heart that had unfortunately stayed behind. Even after all these years, I knew it was still here. I felt it.”

Bellamy Cutler is no stranger to hardship. But one emotionally-charged decision changes her fate. She is strong, smart and selfless; even in the face of danger. Cue the one and only Liam Mattison. Hot damn!! He was everything I could have
I have enjoyed so many of Hebert's books and wanted to give her new series a try. While I didn't dislike this one, it didn't leave me with the giddiness I had anticipated either. Most of the suspense aspect felt unrealistic. Even though it was second chance, the romance between Bellamy and Liam was flat.

Not certain if I will read the follow-up.

New series

Really great start to a new series. I will warn that while it doesn't end with a typical cliffhanger, the story is left with a hang as to where does Bellamy and Liam go ...

The story is very much a second chance novel but it was very refreshing that they didn't hate each other. I sometimes get sick of that ... for these two it was more the "one that got away".

I am excited to see where the author takes us and hope we continue on with Alex (the best friend and very much like her other

This is how you do it.

This author just knows the formula for new adult. The pacing is damn near perfect. The story keeps you hooked. This is smart writing for sure.

Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t my favorite book or anything, but I sure as hell appreciate this concept and this author. As a snowboarder, I wanted a bit more there, but I can’t find too many other faults.

Read this book when you want something light but rich in nutrients, sorta like a salmon salad. And now I’m hungry. Great. Thanks

Avalanche is the perfect title for the beginning of Bellamy and Liam’s story. Not only because it’s something that can occur on one of the slopes at BearPaw Resort, but also because both Bellamy and Liam’s lives have seemed to tumble and rapidly slide downhill since they parted ways eight years ago - Bellamy due to witnessing something that puts her life in danger and Liam due to an injury that sidelines him and forces him to head back home.

**Reviewed by Katie**

I LOVED this book! I am a sucker for a good story of a damsel in distress, but so many times, people fall short with the storyline. Cambria has delivered a fresh storyline and setup a new world for you to fall in love with! As an avid Rocky Mountain lover, I was impressed with her new ski town she has created. Her attention to details regarding the setup of the town, even down to the towns people’s reactions and amenities at the lodge were spot-on.

This is not a slow buildup

Growing up, Bellamy didn't have the best relationship with her father as he was never there for her family as she later learned it was in deep with some bad people. One of the best times though she had with her dad was when she was sixteen, and she spent a two-week vacation with him at Bearpaw Resort. That vacation was also where Bellamy experienced her first heartbreak with Liam Mattison. Now Eight years later, Bellamy is living in Witness Protection as Bella Lane after the murder of her father
