Charmed (Death Escorts #2) by Cambria Hebert

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 Escort, a cold and calculating man who can charm his way through anything.

Frankie knows exactly who Charming is and what is his job (read book one) so she decides to stop him and don't let another Target get killed, cause that's what Death Escorts do, they kill Targets for the Grim Reaper to collect their souls. So Frankie starts getting close to the Target and at the same time close to Charming, until the inevitable happens and she falls for him. But what is more surprising is that Charming is falling for her too, even after 90 years of being a cold hearted, killing machine.

This book was amazing. Both Frankie and Charming are great characters, with strong personalities, full of passion(and lust). I loved the way they kept fighting with each other all the while watching them fall deeper and deeper in love. They had no power over what they did to each other. It was all so magical and god, the chemistry between them was overwhelming! Having these kind of main characters this book had so much more hot scenes than the first one. Actually the first one was more of an YA book but this one bordered on adult. Still it was brilliant.

It was a torture to see how Frankie wanted Charming but still couldn't accept the fact that he killed for a living. And then even he started getting buried underneath all the guilt. After 90 years of being an Escort he finally started feeling again and that changed him. I love it when the main female protagonist brings the best out of a bad boy.

I loved every single scene Charming and Frankie had together. And then there is this great ending. With some mysteries still left unsolved for the next book. Cambria put these characters through hell and I had no idea how they were going to work things out, especially with the Grim Reaper, but in the end they did. And I was glad that they found their happy ending, especially Charming 'cause he deserved it more than anyone else.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
