Love or Death? A simple question really. The choice seems obvious. But. What if you never knew love, what if your life was spent just trying to survive? What if you knew your fate before you were fully grown?
And then you died.
And you were given another chance. A better chance.
This new life depended upon one thing: your job. And so you agreed. You thought it would be simple. You thought it would be cut and dry.
It never is.
And now you are left holding the fate of someone else in the palm of your hand and you have to make the ultimate choice.
Love or Death?
This is the first book I have ever read of Cambria Hebert's and I am rushing to get more of her books now and can't wait for the next book in this series.
Dex lives in the coldest place in America - Alaska and lives on the streets, he is street wise but not love wise. He has his little tricks down pat and on a very cold night what would be a normal move for him turns his life upside down. What happens in just a few short moments has Dex doing something he never in a million years would think of doing. And then making a deal he thinks will change his life for the better forever.
Piper is a struggling medical student working a late shift at a diner and on her way home when she bumps into a stranger on the street. She senses something about him, something that she soon learns will soon have her world spinning out of control. Piper has this special gift that she has never shared with anyone other than her best friend. And in the few moments that she touches this stranger she see's something that stays with her. And after a terrible accident she is on a mission to learn more about this man and the who calls himself Dex who comes into her life after.
I love how this book switches back and forth between characters telling the story from Dex's standpoint and then Piper's. Each chapter starts with a word and the definition of that word and that is what that chapter is about. That moment in either Dex's or Pipers life and it revolves around that word.
The story is at times very funny - Dex he struggles with what he must do, a deal made with the #1 death dealer "Grim Reaper" and these feelings for Piper that he doesn't understand or know what to do with. It is also at times very serious - you are biting your nails wondering OMG is he really doing this, will he go through with it. Piper what will happen to Piper.
The never ending mishaps with these two keep the story moving and you can't wait to get from Dex's point to Piper's point and back again. I love the other characters in this book. Piper's feisty but loyal friend Frankie is too funny she is full of spunk and attitude. Charming another who made a deal with the Grim Reaper - thinks he is all that and a box of chocolates - but Frankie sees right through him from the start. And Storm oh I love Storm's comebacks.
This is a great read I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read more of her books. ~Tonya~
