On the other side of the coin, Piper is trying to finish off her medical degree and earn a living until then as a waitress. Piper can also sense events after making skin to skin contact with others; which is why G.R. is after her behind. After her life is saved, Piper goes on a mini mission to find the identity of her savior. Finding only more questions, Dex suddenly pops into her life.
In the few months he is given to whack Piper in return for lots of moola and power, Dex and Piper get to know each other. Fall for each other. Even love each other. Dex fails and ends up saving Piper in multiple attempts of taking her life provoked by him. We are introduced to Charming, who comes into "mentor" Dex and get the job done. In attempting to finish the job himself, Charming lets loose a series of events that leads to Dex's and Piper's freedom... and the reader crying their eye balls out.
The plot of this book is totally unique and will rock your paranormal socks off. The romance is sweet and the end bittersweet. Pick it up. You won't be disappointed!
I really didn't know what to expect when I first started reading about a guy who became a killer at the early age of 10 but then he makes an unexpected decision that changes his life forever. The new life he is then offered is something most people in his circumstance would dream of; money, cars, a house, food and warmth from the cold Alaskan winter. He, however, doesn't truly grasp the cost of his decision until further in the book.
The raw emotion that both the main characters feel are both easy to feel as a reader and you find that it's hard to put the book down. There are times that you wish you could reach into the book and just shake Dex and say, "What's wrong with you! Don't you see that you have a better choice?" The supporting characters are all very likable (or hateabl depending on which you're reading at the time).
I really enjoyed reading Recalled and I believe that in the future I will look into Cambria Hebert for more books.
Piper is a sweet girl with the ability to have visions of the future. She has a best friend Franky who is spunky and fun. Piper is going to college to be a doctor and also working at a diner to pay for it. One night she runs into a guy (Dex) on the street who just so happens to pick pocket her tips on her way to the bus stop. Just seconds after the bus comes and loses control and is about to hit Piper but the guy that stole her money pushes her out of the way and in return ends up hit by the bus and dying on the street with his last vision being Piper.
Dex was homeless living on the streets. After helping Piper and getting killed he wakes up in a room without a true form only a purple mist. In this room that looks like an office there is a man named G.R who offers him a job as a Death Escort with tons of money and nice things. Something Dex never had before. His first target is Piper. Dex agrees because of the money and being able to live like he never has before. He has two months to get the job done or he gets Recalled and sent to a place much worse then Hell. Dex tries his best to do the job but what he didn't plan on or expect was to actually like Piper.
Piper knows there is something about Dex that she can't seem to figure out. Some things he has said makes her think he knows the guy that saved her life from the bus. She proceeds to try and figure it out by showing up at his house. This is Dex's first real chance to kill Piper. He invites her to stay for dinner with the knowledge that she is deathly allergic to peanuts and his butler Hobbs just fried chicken in peanut oil. But as Piper is on the floor close to dying Dex has a change of heart and Hobbs saves her just in time
After Hobbs saves Piper and Dex finally gets her home he meets a Ghost Escort named Storm. Storm doesn't have a body or really any form at all but grey and is there to spy on the targets that Escorts are given. Once Piper is dead Storm would get a vacation where G.R gives him a body for a little while to do as he wants.
"I'd fist bump you, but that might be kind of hard."
"Like I haven't heard that before."
He tries several times to kill her but every time he ends up saving her again. G.R. which Dex learns stands for Grim Reaper shows him what it would be like to be stuck in the other place that is worse then Hell. He fights with himself and the fear of the place he could end up. He finally comes to the realization that he is in love. Something he has never felt before.
Charming comes into the picture as Dex's babysitter. When the job is done and Piper is killed Charming will receive her gift of visions. He tries pushing Dex to get the job done. Charming ends up taking off and kidnapping Piper from her house. He takes her to the diner where he plans on killing her but Dex comes in and rescues her. After getting her away from Charming and driving down the icy road Piper realizes that Dex has been trying to kill her all along. She is crushed because she has fallen in love with him too. After finding out she starts beating on Dex resulting in a bad car accident placing her in the hospital yet again.
The ending to this book was damn good. I was so nervous threw this book not knowing what was going to happen. I really hate that Dex and Piper couldn't have a happily ever after. Storm made me laugh along with the times Dex made fun of Charming for his crazy name. This book was perfect and I am so happy I finally sat down and read it.
